Wesfarmers added in its release of results for the first quarter of its financial year: "There is a strong focus within the business on continuing to transition core ranges across to home improvement and garden products. Pleasing progress is being made with this work."
Home improvement division chief executive officer John Gillam said the implementation of new pricing, marketing and operational strategies within Homebase is achieving results "in line with plans".
On a like-for-like trading basis across the first quarter, customer participation, as measured by transactions, increased by 8.4 per cent.
Gillam added: "Good progress is also being made across all elements of the acquisition agenda."
