Nick Robertson, CEO, commented:
"I am delighted with our robust first half performance and pleased to report strong trading for the three months to 28 February 2013 with total retail sales of £186m, up 37%, resulting in first half retail sales growth of +34% to £352m.
Our UK performance remained ahead of expectations at +28%, with particularly strong trading during the peak December period. Our International business grew by +45% and now accounts for 59% of our total retail sales. Our EU growth continues to be driven by strong performance in those countries where we have dedicated websites and particularly by our new in-country teams in France and Germany.
The strength of our UK performance continues to put pressure on our achieved retail gross margin. We expect this to improve during the remainder of the financial year as we annualise last year's price investments and achieve planned sourcing gains.
We remain positive in our outlook for the year to 31 August 2013 and continue to trade in line with expectations."
