Hamburg, Germany, 10 January 2019 – The Hamburg-based Bijou Brigitte Group generated sales of EUR 322 million in the 2018 financial year. Group sales fell by 1.5% compared to the previous year (previous year: EUR 327 million). This decline is primarily due to the lower number of branches. Group sales were therefore within the forecast range of EUR 315 million to EUR 330 million.

The store network was reduced by ten locations to 1,050 in the 2018 financial year (previous year: 1,060). Adjusted for store closures, the segments in Germany and Spain were able to maintain their sales levels, while Italy saw a slight increase in sales. Portugal and the “Other countries” segment recorded sales below the level of the previous year.

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