Hamburg, Germany, 23 March 2021 – According to preliminary and still unaudited figures, the Hamburg-based Bijou Brigitte Group suffered a loss before income taxes in the 2020 financial year for the first time in the company’s history. This loss amounted to EUR 33.7 million (previous year: profit of EUR 37.4 million). Earnings were therefore within the range of between EUR –30.0 million and EUR –40.0 million which was forecast in November 2020. Net profit after taxes amounted to EUR –31.0 million in 2020, compared with EUR 25.4 million in the previous year. 
This dramatic development is a result of income losses of EUR 129 million (from EUR 334 million in 2019 to EUR 205 million in 2020) related to the measures taken by European governments to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
The consolidated and annual financial statements of Bijou Brigitte modische Accessoires AG for the 2020 financial year will be published in April 2021.
