Nick Robertson, Chief Executive, made the following comments.
"It was another excellent year for ASOS, total sales rose 35% and profit before tax is likely to be in line with market expectations. The year was characterised by more conservative planning, specifically around stock levels, a focus on operational and financial controls and the introduction of key customer initiatives such as free returns. Simultaneously we have been developing our International business and remain on track to launch our US, French and German websites this year.

The new year has started very positively, retail sales are up 56% in April (UK +25% and International +148%) the top 6 international markets being US, Denmark, France, Australia, Ireland and Germany respectively.

We are approaching this year with considerably more confidence. Demand for our spring / summer ranges have been very strong and the Internet continues to outperform the other retail channels".

Preliminary results and future trading updates
ASOS will announce its preliminary results for the year ended 31 March 2009 on Wednesday 9 June 2010, when it will provide a full overview and update on the business.

ASOS will move to quarterly trading updates for the 2011 financial year and the announcement dates will shortly be available on the Group's website.
