On 13th June, the company announced a set of strategic initiatives to build a strong foundation for future growth, including exiting the non-profitable Denmark market, closing underperforming stores and streamlining core operations.

Full Year Results showed a modest 2.2% increase in network sales and a 2.4% rise in online sales but another loss, with net profit down 25.7%.

The initiatives may be taking hold as the company’s Annual General Meeting on 1st November included a positive trading update on FY 2024 to date – network sales are up 12.7%.

Company management also claimed that cost cutting will yield significantly higher earnings in FY 2024.

Domino’s is a solid dividend payer, with a five-year average payment of $1.36 and a five-year average total yield – including share buyback yields – of 2.76%.

An analyst at Fat Prophets has a HOLD recommendation on Domino’s Pizza Enterprises, citing rising network sales and encouraging strategic initiatives.
