WHSmith intends to build on its position as the UK’s most popular bookseller, stationer and newsagent by continuing to grow its strongly performing Travel business and delivering its High Street plan. We aim to improve the Company’s profitability and cash flow generation, delivering sustainable returns to shareholders.
The Travel business is focused on delivering value to shareholders through organic growth in its existing outlets, securing new contracts, trialling new formats, increasing average transaction value and making improvements to trading efficiency.
The High Street plan concentrates on building authority in our core categories, optimising margins, controlling costs and ensuring we deliver the retailing basics.
WHSmith aims to act responsibly to all stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, business partners, employees and the communities in which we operate.
