LEGO Group: A Powerhouse in Toy Industry
H1 2023 Finacial Report: Despite a challenging landscape, LEGO Group’s financial performance for the first half of 2023 has been impressive. With a revenue growth of 1% amounting to DKK 27.4 billion, the company has outperformed the declining toy industry, thanks to its diverse product portfolio.
Key Highlights: LEGO’s H1 2023 Financial Report
Consumer demand for LEGO’s diverse portfolio led to a 3% sales growth compared to H1 2022. This robust performance resulted in significant market share growth. However, operating profit fell from DKK 7.9 billion in H1 2022 to DKK 6.4 billion in H1 2023.
