Group revenue increased to €840.0m from €825.2m. Mails & Parcels revenue was €15.6m higher than in 2016. The mix in the revenue continues to change with traditional mail volume declining, offset by price increases and the addition of increased value‑added mail services. The impact of increased pricing added €60m to revenue in 2017. In April 2017 the company changed the price of a single piece stamp to €1. This was the first significant price increase for a very considerable time. This pricing was implemented to bring Ireland closer to the norm for mail services as observed in other countries.
