"This has been another excellent year during which we have continued to build Ted Baker as a global lifestyle brand. We have further developed our presence internationally and invested in markets where we see long term growth opportunities whilst remaining unwavering in our focus on quality, design and attention to detail that underpins everything we do.
We have continued to invest in the business to support our growth, including the successful launch in November of our new e-commerce platform that provides opportunities for future growth and multi-channel developments.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Ted Baker team across the world. Our continued strong performance in what remains a competitive market and the ongoing development of the brand on the world stage would not have been possible without their hard work, skill and Tedication during the year."
