Hamburg, Germany, 9 January 2018 – The Hamburg-based Bijou Brigitte Group generated sales of EUR 326 million in the 2017 financial year. Group sales fell by 3.0% compared to the previous year (previous year: EUR 336 million). The reduced number of stores and weak fourth quarter had a significant impact. Group sales were therefore within the range of EUR 325 million to EUR 330 million forecast in November.

The store network was reduced by 36 locations to 1,060 in the 2017 financial year (previous year: 1,096). The German and Italian segments declined due to falling visitor numbers. Adjusted for store closures, Portugal showed an increase in sales, while sales in Spain remained stable. The “Other countries” segment recorded sales that were almost on a par with the previous year.

Further information about Group earnings and the dividend proposal is due to be published in the second half of March.
