Angela Ahrendts, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“The Burberry team delivered a 30% increase in revenue in the third quarter, with strong, consistent growth in both retail and wholesale and in every product division and region. As a result, we now expect adjusted profit before tax for the current financial year to be at the top end of market expectations. Ongoing initiatives in retail, digital, product development and new markets underpin our confidence in the future.”

Retail
Retail sales in the third quarter increased by 36% on an underlying basis (up 40% at reported FX). New space generated 8% of this underlying growth, while China, which transferred from wholesale to retail on 1 September 2010, contributed a further 14%.

Comparable store sales in the third quarter grew by 14%, with mainline stores significantly outperforming. The Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe all delivered double-digit comparable store sales growth, with particular strength in the UK, France, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Comparable store sales growth in China was over 30% in the acquired stores. These Chinese sales were not included in Burberry's 14% comparable growth for the quarter.

In mainline retail, all four product divisions (non-apparel, women's, men's and children's) delivered strong, consistent growth, with outperformance from Prorsum, shoes, small leather goods and men's accessories. Helped by improved replenishment capabilities, outerwear and large leather goods again accounted for about half of the growth. This mix benefit contributed to a further increase in average price per unit sold.

During the third quarter, Burberry opened seven mainline stores, including São Paulo, Brazil; Puebla, Mexico; the first Brit store in Europe in Milan; and a flagship store in Beijing, showcasing its most advanced digital in-store technology. For the second half, average selling space is expected to increase by about 25% as previously guided. About 15% of this is in China (both acquired stores and new openings), with the balance of about 10% across other regions.
