“The past year has shown us that Österreichische Post AG is on the right track with its restructuring program. However, we have not yet reached the bottom line. To be able to cope with the challenges of a changing market and to successfully go forward with our expansion plans towards Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, we – and that includes all of our staff – still have to make great efforts”, comments Österreichische Post AG CEO Anton Wais on the preliminary financial figures of the enterprise.
