zooplus AG (WKN 511170, ISIN DE0005111702, ticker symbol ZO1), Europe's leading pet supplies online retailer, generated total sales of EUR 256.2 mm during 2011 according to preliminary figures. This includes sales from the online retail of pet supplies of around EUR 244.8 mm as well as EUR 11.4 mm from other operating income. Compared year-on-year, this represents an increase of around 32%.

The company was able to increase total sales during the final quarter of 2011 to around EUR 71.1 mm (Q3 2011: EUR 66.5 mm). These figures also reflect the performance of the new Hörselgau logistics operation, which went live in mid-2011. In combination with the existing site in Tilburg, The Netherlands, this set-up provides capacity for over EUR 400 mm in total annual sales and, therefore, forms the basis of the company's planned future growth.

Florian Seubert, CFO of zooplus AG, is satisfied with the company's sales development in 2011: "By generating total sales of EUR 256 mm we are well on course and have comfortably achieved our overall forecast. The completed large-scale logistics migration project together with the successfully executed capital increase will further support our growth over the coming years."
