In 2013 many events with major implications for Magyar Posta’s future operation occurred. The Company had to respond to the new challenges generated by the external environment and the market, and also new opportunities arose during the course of the year. In Addition to market challenges, in 2013 new opportunities opened for Magyar Posta by expanding the company group and through changes in ownership. Net sales revenue for all products and services in 2013 was HUF 189,172 million, slightly down on 2012. The total costs of business activities were also minimally lower year-on-year. A significant reduction (almost 14 per cent) was achieved in material-type expenditures. Personnel costs accounted for almost 60 per cent of business expenditure, which includes wages paid to employees, contributions as well as fringe benefits.
