"We are pleased that our TOM TAILOR umbrella brand continued to grow during the first half of the year, bucking both, market trends and the weather. As expected, BONITA was unable to detach itself from the difficult conditions in the market," said Dieter Holzer, CEO of TOM TAILOR Holding AG.

TOM TAILOR umbrella brand continues to grow successfully
TOM TAILOR GROUP doubles its sales in the first half-year to EUR 407.0 million (previous year: EUR 207.8 million). In the second quarter, Group sales climbed to EUR 210.1 million (previous year: EUR 104.3 million). Thereby, it must be considered that BONITA was consolidated for the first time in August 2012.

Within also TOM TAILOR's e-commerce business continued to grow dynamically, with a sales increase of 14.9% to EUR 17.7 million (previous year: EUR 15.4 million). In the second quarter, TOM TAILOR retail achieved a like-for-like increase in sales of 13.1%. This meant that the retail segment grew for the eighteenth quarter in a row in comparable sales areas. Like-for-like growth in the first half-year came to 7.9%, thereby significantly exceeding the industry average.
The TOM TAILOR wholesale segment increased sales by 11.8% from EUR 122.3 million to EUR 136.7 million in the reporting period. Since 31 December 2012, the segment increased the number of shop-in-shops by net 71 to 2,102 and of franchise stores by net five to 180 stores.
The BONITA umbrella brand contributed sales of EUR 162.5 million to the Group's overall sales. This corresponds to a fall of 6.3% year-on-year. Sales declined by 5.0% in the second quarter and by 9.6% in the first half-year on a like-for-like basis.
