Net profit for the period amounted to 1.27 billion euros, compared with a loss of 195 million euros in the first half of 2020.

Thanks to all of them we are reaping the benefits of the strategic and sustainable transformation in our unique business model”.

Similarly, second-quarter 2021 net profit reached 850 million euros, outperforming the previous high set in quarter two of 2019.

Online sales continued to register significant growth, reaching 36% above the levels registered in the first semester of 2020 levels and 137% above the pre-pandemic figures registered in the first six months of fiscal 2019 (in local currencies). Online sales expected to account for more than 25% of total sales in current financial year 2021.

The group’s first-half gross margin reached 57.9%, and the company is forecasting full year gross margin to be around 57.5% (+/- 50bps) in 2021.
