  • International sales 63% of total (61% last year)
  • Retail gross margin down 100bps on prior year (+440bps in Q1 2011/12)
  • In-country offices opened in USA, France and Germany
  • 5.4 million active customers* at 30 November 2012 (+35% year on year)

Nick Robertson, CEO, commented:

"I am pleased to report strong trading for the three months to 30 November 2012 with total retail sales up 30% to £166m.

"Our UK performance was ahead of expectations at +24%, driven by better conversion of traffic alongside continued investment in both our proposition and pricing. Our International business grew by +34% and now accounts for 63% of our total retail sales. We achieved +57% growth in the US, +42% growth in ROW, and +15% growth within the EU. Once again the performance of countries where we have dedicated websites was significantly better than the EU performance as a whole.

"The retail gross margin performance reflects a combination of a particularly strong comparative period, the UK accounting for a larger percentage of the total retail sales mix than initially planned and continued price reinvestment.

"We remain positive in our outlook and continue to trade in line with expectations."
