Burberry today reported on the group’s trading for the three months to 30 June 2008, posting higher than expected earnings rising 22%. The company stated global retail revenue was up 14%, with comparable store sales growth of 4.5%. Burberry also saw strong comparable store growth in the Americas, Europe and Asia which was offset by continued weakness in Spain with good performances in non-apparel and outerwear. Commenting on this performance, Angela Ahrendts, Chief Executive Officer, said: “I am pleased with Burberry’s start to the year in an increasingly challenging external environment. Our brand momentum is strong, driven by product innovation and a focused management team. This momentum, together with the diversity and balance we have across products, channels and regions, underpins our confidence for the future.”
