The company has reported retail revenue of 478 million British pounds, up by 3% underlying (up by 13% at reported). Comparable sales increased by 4% in the quarter with strength in Mainland China driving improved, mid-single-digit percentage growth in Asia Pacific.

For the second half of FY 2018 the company currently expects underlying wholesale revenue to be down due to brand control. Refering to the 30th of June effective rates, the expected impact of year-on-year exchange rate movements on FY 2018 reported adjusted PBT is around 25 million British pounds adverse compared to previous guidance for 30 million British pounds adverse at 28th of April effective rates.
