What is the modern history of Kingfisher plc?

Kingfisher traces its roots back to 1982 when Paternoster acquired F.W. Woolworth. With the deal came the B&Q store chain, which subsequently expanded to become the U.K.’s leading home improvement retailer. Then in 1998 B&Q merged with Castorama, owner of the fast-growing Brico Dépôt chain. Kingfisher added Screwfix to its portfolio in 1999.

In the 2000s Kingfisher decided to focus exclusively on its home improvement businesses and continued its international expansion in Europe and Asia.In 2013 it entered its first new market in seven years with the acquisition of Bricostore's home improvement chain in Romania.

In January 2016, the company announced a transformation plan entitled ONE Kingfisher, under which it is seeking to create a unified, unique and leading home improvement offer, driving its digital capability and optimising operational efficiency. The plan aims to achieve £500 million of sustainable profit uplift by year 5, over and above “business as usual”.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
