SHOP APOTHEKE EUROPE N.V., currently active in seven European countries, has increased sales for the first nine months of 2021 by 9.8% to EUR 772 million, according to preliminary calculations. Sales had been impacted by capacity constraints from May to mid-September, which resulted in preliminary Q3 sales growth of -0.3% to EUR 238 million. The number of active customers increased by 0.2 million to 7.3 million at the end of Q3.

CEO Stefan Feltens: "The move to our new next generation logistics centre was completed by the beginning of September. Our capacity constraints have been resolved. We no longer have a shortage of logistics personnel. This allows us to return to our growth trajectory and to be prepared for further growth in Q4 and 2022. Year to date, we are posting 9.8% growth thanks to continuously strong growth in our non-Rx assortment in our markets across Europe including Germany, which balanced a decrease of 30.6% in Rx sales in 2021 following the end of the Rx bonus in December 2020. We expect the launch of electronic prescriptions (e-Rx) in Germany soon."
