Hamburg, Germany, 27 November 2020 – Bijou Brigitte’s course of business in the current year was predominantly affected by the measures taken by European governments in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The scenario laid out in the half-year financial report, in which the signs of recovery seen in the summer would continue and no new restrictions would be enacted, did not play out as hoped in the fall. Bijou Brigitte is adjusting its sales forecast as a result. For the 2020 financial year, the Group now expects sales of between EUR 200.0 million and EUR 210.0 million (2019 financial year: EUR 334.0 million). Concrete effects on the operating result are difficult to predict due to the numerous unforeseeable influencing factors. Bijou Brigitte continues to expect a preliminary loss of between EUR 30.0 million and EUR 40.0 million before income taxes for the 2020 financial year (2019 financial year: profit of EUR 37.4 million).
