FULL-YEAR

The H&M Group’s sales including VAT increased in local currencies by 9 percent during the financial year. Sales in comparable units were unchanged. Converted into SEK, sales excluding VAT amounted to SEK 128,562 m (120,799), an increase of 6 percent.

Gross profit amounted to SEK 76,033 m (71,871), corresponding to a gross margin of 59.1 percent (59.5).

Profit after financial items amounted to SEK 22,526 m (22,285). Profit for the year was negatively affected by currency translation effects of approximately SEK 600 m compared to the previous year. The Group’s profit after tax increased to SEK 17,152 m (16,867), corresponding to SEK 10.36 (10.19) per share.

Strong expansion during the year with a net addition of 356 (304) new stores. China and the US were the largest expansion markets.

More than 12,000 new jobs were created in the H&M Group in 2013. The number of employees amounted to more than 116,000 (104,000) by the end of the year.

FOURTH QUARTER

The H&M Group’s sales including VAT increased in local currencies by 13 percent in the fourth quarter. Sales in comparable units increased by 3 percent. Converted into SEK, sales excluding VAT amounted to SEK 36,495 m (32,502).

Gross profit increased by 11 percent and amounted to SEK 22,189 m (20,017), corresponding to a gross margin of 60.8 percent (61.6). The difference in the gross margin is mainly due to currency exchange rate effects arising in connection with payments for the Group’s flow of goods and to year-end effects. Apart from these factors, the gross margin was more or less at the same level as in the fourth quarter 2012.

Profit after financial items amounted to SEK 7,337 m (6,636), an increase of 11 percent. The Group’s profit after tax amounted to SEK 5,608 m (5,287), corresponding to SEK 3.39 (3.19) per share.
