Superdry founder and chief executive officer Julian Dunkerton said: “This has been a difficult year for the business and the market conditions have been extremely challenging, especially in wholesale. We’ve looked closely at how we operate and have taken decisive actions to improve our position, rebuild liquidity and recapitalise our balance sheet through careful preservation of cash and a re-engineered cost base.
“The good news is that despite the external turbulence, the brand is in sound health and has momentum. Stores and e-commerce delivered a strong sales performance and I’m excited by our collections for the Autumn/Winter 23 season.
“While wholesale remains very challenging, I believe the new team in place will recover this business in the medium term. I’m really excited by our new partnership in Asia, finalised after year-end, which not only has helped rebuild our balance sheet but will ensure Superdry can achieve its potential as a truly global brand.”
