Kingfisher share price: what’s the latest ahead of its Q3 results?

The B&Q and Screwfix owner unveils its Q3 earnings next week, but with it focused on its turnaround strategy after several challenging quarters, its shares are unlikely to see significant gains in the near-term.

Kingfisher releases its third quarter earnings next week, with investors interested to see if the group’s new CEO Thierry Garnier will continue with the transformation plan his predecessor started or take the company in a new direction.

The ONE Kingfisher turnaround strategy implemented by former CEO Véronique Laury aims unify the company’s product ranges, drive the digital transformation of the group and improve operational efficiency.

Kingfisher’s chairman Andy Cosslett told reporters earlier this year that there would be ‘no handcuffs’ on Garnier’s arrival to the company. But with the retailer recording a 6.4% decline in half-year profit, the new CEO certainly has a tough road ahead.
