“The Group maintained sales momentum, and growth in the quarter was 16%, fuelled primarily by the Sports & Health segment, which grew by 26%, and Fashion, which saw a 23% rise in sales.

“All the measures and initiatives that have been implemented within Nelly.com over the past two years are gradually starting to produce results; growth has returned and the operating margin has improved, partly due to a logistics upgrade and a higher percentage of sales of private label products. Launches in France, Belgium and Poland, and NLY Man, are also progressing according to plan.
