    Dufry to implement a global restructuring program

    Dufry, in line with the initiatives to reduce expenses and to adapt the company to the new business environment, has decided to implement a restructuring program to mitigate the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. The program aims at reducing personnel expenses by 20% to 35% reflecting the different scenarios of potential sales declines between 40% to 70%, which the company had already presented in its Q1 Trading Update on May 12, 2020. The reduction in personnel expenses includes early retirements, hold-backs of seasonal staff employment, contributions from government support schemes as well as the reduction of positions across all organizational levels and geographies. Due to consultation procedures in several countries, it is currently not possible to provide details on the number and locations of the positions concerned. The company plans to implement these measures between June and October 2020.
