    Australia's Wesfarmers sees signs of grocery recovery as H1 profit slumps

    Australian retail giant Wesfarmers Ltd said it saw signs of a recovery in its core grocery business after a price war with rival Woolworths Ltd, sending its shares sharply higher despite an 87 percent slump in first-half profit. An expected $1 billion writedown on British hardware business Homebase, which dragged first-half profit to its lowest in more than a decade, was balanced by signs of a sales pickup at Australian No.2 supermarket chain Coles.

    Wesfarmers says $1 billion Homebase writedown its own fault

    Retail giant Wesfarmers Ltd (WES.AX) wrote off British hardware chain Homebase for more than its purchase price, saying on Monday it had made a series of mistakes that serve as another cautionary tale for Australian firms expanding overseas. Wesfarmer's write-off of Homebase, which it bought for A$705 million two years ago, accounted for almost all the A$1.3 billion (£708 million) of impairment charges it announced on Monday, triggering the steepest daily drop in its stock in just over a year. Managing Director Rob Scott said Australia's largest retailer by revenue had made several "self-induced" blunders after buying Homebase, including dropping popular lines for kitchens and bathrooms and underestimating winter demand for a range of items from heaters to cleaning and storage.
