Rexor, the German buying group controlled by ANWR, recorded a 3.8 percent increase in centralized settlements to €220.3 million in 2018. In Germany, Rexor managed to increase its sales by more than 10 percent last year. Follow-up orders from affiliated retailers decreased significantly in 2018, mainly because of difficulties in the shoe retail industry. The growth in centralized settlements is mainly due to the group's increased membership from 2017 to 2018. Rexor's general meeting, which will include detailed figures, is scheduled for the Gallery Shoes show in Düsseldorf this March.
