Hamburg, 9 October 2019 – In the first three quarters of the 2019 financial year, the Bijou Brigitte Group generated Group sales of EUR 241.3 million, therefore surpassing the previous year’s benchmark figure of EUR 233.0 million by 3.5%. 
The positive developments seen in the first three quarters have led the Management Board to raise their full-year forecast. Considering the course of business to date, the Bijou Brigitte Group currently predicts sales between EUR 325 to EUR 333 million for the 2019 financial year, assuming that there are no substantial changes to the economic environment (2018 financial year: EUR 321.6 million). For Group earnings before income taxes, a value of between EUR 25 million and EUR 32 million is expected (2018 financial year: EUR 31.7 million). The imminent Christmas trade, which is highly significant for the sales trend in the fourth quarter, will play an important role in this result.
As of 30 September 2019, the store network comprised 1,040 stores (31 December 2018: 1,050). The company expects the number of stores to remain at this level at the close of 2019.
