Hamburg, 23 March 2022 – According to preliminary and still unaudited figures, the Hamburg-based Bijou Brigitte Group generated profit before income taxes in the 2021 financial year of EUR 19.1 million (previous year: EUR –33,7 million). Net profit after taxes amounted to EUR 16.2 million in 2021, compared with EUR –31.0 million in the previous year. 
This development is due in part to the increasing relaxation of coronavirus restrictions in different countries and the associated reopening of brick-and-mortar stores, and also in part to the approval and payment of interim aid III from the German government totalling EUR 20.4 million.
Because interim aid III, which was approved and paid in December 2021, has the condition that no profit or dividend payments can be made, the Management Board and Supervisory Board of Bijou Brigitte modische Accessoires AG will propose to the Annual General Meeting that the dividend payment be suspended once again for the 2021 financial year (previous year: EUR 0.00). 
The consolidated and annual financial statements of Bijou Brigitte modische Accessoires AG for the 2021 financial year will be published in April 2022. The Annual General Meeting is planned for 21 June 2022.
