Dave Forsey, Chief Executive, said: "Our position as the consumers' champion, offering an unrivalled depth and breadth of product choice at the best available prices, delivered a record Sports Retail performance. We achieved record revenues and growth across all divisions.
"Our colleagues have worked hard during the year and, as a result, we have exceeded the first underlying EBITDA target of £215m (before the charge for the bonus share scheme) and the "super stretch" target of £225m. Also, those staff eligible for the 2009 Bonus Share Scheme will be receiving their first share awards in August 2012, with the remainder of their shares vesting in August 2013.
"Trading since the period end has remained in line with management's expectations where increased investment in margin has been funded by stronger retail sales. In spite of the low expectations surrounding England's participation in Euro 2012 and the unseasonal weather our core divisions are performing well.
“Excitement is building towards the Olympics and we continue to target our 2013 "super stretch" underlying EBITDA objective of £270m (before the charge for the bonus share schemes). We are very excited about the London Olympics that begin next week and we wish all Great British athletes the very best of luck."
