Morningstar | Full-Year William Demant Results in Line With Our Expectations; Fair Value Estimate Maintained

Narrow-moat William Demant announced Feb. 19 its full-year 2018 results and the group name re-brand from William Demant Holding to Demant.

William Demant controls more than one fifth of the world's hearing aid market, possessing roughly the same share as key competitor Sonova. The two rivals are very similar in their approach to the mar...
