Peter Cowgill, Executive Chairman, said: "I stated in April that the recent expansion activity in the Group, the relocation of distribution facilities and the resolution of the stock and property issues in the Blacks business would impact results in the short term. As expected, this has proven to be the case but it does provide the Group with a very positive platform for future development.
"I am pleased to report that our primary JD fascia remains robust and we have increased our overseas presence with the intention of producing long term value for shareholders. The robust trading in the Sports Fascias has continued since the period end although trading in the Fashion Fascias has been more difficult. Our Outdoor business continues to stabilise and aims to break even in the second half before any restructuring charges.
"As ever, the Group result for the full year remains very dependent on the sales and margin performance in December and January. Notwithstanding the economic pressure on margin and the general increase in taxation and other levies across Europe, the Board believes that the Group is well positioned to deliver results that are within the range of current expectations."
Established in 1981 with a single store in Bury, in the North West of England, JD Sports Fashion Plc is the leading retailer and distributor of branded sportswear and fashionwear.
