This morning Blackmores (ASX:BKL) reported their full year results and they were above market expectations, with revenue rebounding strongly from FY17 to FY18 (up 9%) and NPAT increasing by 19%. It’s been a volatile few years for the vitamin maker however it seems management have now re-aligned the business, optimised the cost structure and are now pushing hard into Asia.

The composition of the result was interesting, with Q4 revenue a strong point while they also had the added benefit of expanding margins.
