Jean-Pierre on Choose n Pay’s efficiency throughout Richard Brasher’s period:
If we recall to the last 10 years in between Raymond Ackerman’s age of 80 and 90, I believe Richard Brasher has actually done an excellent task. If we take ourselves back to when he signed up with, approximately 8 years earlier, there was a lot going on at Select n Pay. They had actually simply introduced the Smart Consumer program, there was a sorting of franchisees, they were approaching main circulation and they were broadening to Nigeria. They likewise introduced their own label and it was in fact excessive. Richard Brasher can be found in and gradually however definitely and methodically resolved all these concerns and arranged them out. He has actually bailed out on a high.
On whether he understands the inbound CEO, Pieter Boone:
No, he did present himself in the outcomes discussion. He went through his background, so he plainly has actually got a lot of experience in retail and in emerging market retail. I can most likely explain him as a safe set of hands and he is not coming in to repair the company, as was the case with Richard Brasher.
On the retail market:
I believe something about retail is that it is a reasonably basic service. You purchase things and you offer it for a much better rate and you make certain you cover your expenses. That might be oversimplifying it.
On the very best quality retail services on the JSE:
In broad terms, we appear some worth in the South African retail sector. It’s not as appealing as a great deal of other sectors, I would state. Presently in the South African retail sector, our choice is Woolworths. Woolworths has actually been the very best carrying out food retail chain in the in 2015 however the worst over the last 5 years, primarily as an outcome of David Jones. Now that they have actually arranged out the Australian balance sheet and the old nation roadway from David Jones, that is our choice.
