Hamburg, 23 December 2019 – Based on the successful development of the fourth quarter to date as well as the start of the Christmas business, the Management Board expects Bijou Brigitte Group sales to slightly exceed the forecast range for the 2019 financial year.  Furthermore, earnings are expected to develop accordingly and to also lie above the forecast range. 
In October, the Group raised its full-year forecast and predicted sales of between EUR 325 and EUR 333 million for the 2019 financial year (2018 financial year: EUR 321.6 million) and Group earnings before income taxes of between EUR 25 and EUR 32 million (2018 financial year: EUR 31.7 million). 
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.
Group sales for the 2019 financial year will be published in mid-January 2020.
