However, in a statement, the company said operating profit had declined to SFr37 million as a result of its Internet expansion strategy.

The Lausanne-based group sold half its real estate holdings in January, which added a one-off SFr76 million to the financial result.

It added that the second half of the year had begun well for all business segments and forecast a net profit of SFr140 million for the year as a whole.
