Profit attributable to equity shareholders fell by RMB 56.7 million to RMB 284.2 million, mainly due to increase in advertising and promotional investment of RMB 77.8 million.

Xtep said it realised a positive average same store sales performance at retail value for the second quarter of 2014, with a mid single digit increase when compared to the same period of 2013.

In the period under review, inventory level of its retail distribution channels gradually returned to a healthier position at around 4.5 months inventory-to-sales ratio, it added.
