"Trading in the 10 weeks to 10 April 2010 has been encouraging with UK and Ireland retail like for like sales up 2.0% (Sports Fascias 3.0%; Fashion Fascias -3.5%) on an underlying basis taking into account the change in the timing of Easter and school holidays. Although like for like sales are lower, the performance of the Fashion Fascias has benefitted from a 2% improvement in gross margin in the same period.

 

"The Board remains focused on continuing to deliver operational and financial progress for the Group over the long term. Opportunities for profit growth overseas, the rollout of our principal Fashion Fascia, development of our differentiated and own brand proposition, and growth in our Distribution business all help to reduce threats to Group profitability and give us the opportunity to maintain the positive momentum in our business."

Executive Chairman's Statement

 

Introduction

 

The year ended 30 January 2010 has been the sixth successive year of good progress in revenue and profitability for the Group. During the period, we have improved our profit before tax and exceptional items by 26% to £67.4 million (2009: £53.6 million). This follows increases of 24%, 73% and 51% in the previous three years and such sustained performance, in the face of less than favourable economic conditions and exchange rates, reflects the strength and uniqueness of our brand and fascia offers as well as the strength of our management teams.

 

Group profit before tax has increased by 61% in the year to £61.4 million (2009: £38.2 million) and Group profit after tax has increased by 74% to £42.7 million (2009: £24.5 million).

 

Group operating profit (before exceptional items and joint venture results) for the year was up 24% to £67.3 million (2009: £54.5 million) and comprises a Sports Fascias' profit of £64.1 million (2009: £54.2 million), a Fashion Fascias' profit of £3.3 million (2009: £0.2 million) and a Distribution companies loss of £0.1 million (2009: profit of £0.1 million).

 

The year end net cash position has risen to £60.5 million (2009: £23.5 million) and the Group retains £70 million of committed rolling credit and working capital facilities. The Board wishes to retain the funding capability to further develop the Group operationally and by acquisition and this will be taken into account when new facilities are negotiated in the next year. Confidence arising from the cash position and the sustained period of results improvement and balance sheet strengthening has enabled the Board to propose an increase in the level of the dividend with a final proposed dividend increase of 65% to 14.7p (2009: 8.9p) bringing the total dividends payable for the year to 18.0p (2009: 12.0p), an increase of 50% following on from the 41% increase last year.

 

Acquisitions

 

The Group is very well funded currently and has a Sports Fashion retail offer which provides the consumer with a unique mix of sports and fashion brands in both apparel and footwear including licensed and our own brands such as McKenzie and Carbrini. The strength of this offering gives our retail model the potential to be replicated in other countries.

 

On 19 May 2009 we acquired the French retailer Chausport for £7.9 million including fees. In addition, we inherited net debt of £1.7 million. Chausport is based near Lille and is primarily a retailer of sports shoes. With only 75 small stores, nearly all located outside the largest conurbations, we see opportunities for growth in France. We expect to introduce progressive access to JD brands, exclusive product and supplier terms over the next two years. The acquisition contributed £27.7 million of revenue and £0.7 million of operating profit in the period from acquisition to 30 January 2010.

 

On 4 August 2009 we acquired the key trading assets and trade of Canterbury Europe Limited along with the global rights to the world famous heritage rugby brands of 'Canterbury' and 'Canterbury of New Zealand'. The brand, goodwill and fixed assets, along with a Hong Kong based distribution company, were acquired for £6.7 million including fees. The required elements of the remaining inventory were also purchased for £4.3 million. The Canterbury brand was established in New Zealand over 100 years ago and has become the world's foremost rugby brand, distributing both technical and lifestyle footwear, apparel and accessories and with scope for product and distribution extension.

 

On 24 November 2009, the Group took further steps to control the global distribution of the Canterbury brands by purchasing the key assets of the USA distribution company for Canterbury (Sail City Apparel Limited in liquidation) for £0.4 million. On 23 December 2009, we also acquired 100% of the Australian distribution company (Canterbury International (Australia) Pty Limited) and 51% of the New Zealand distribution company (Canterbury of New Zealand Limited) for £0.3 million including fees. A £0.8 million debt to a minority shareholder was assumed with these transactions. The results to date of all these operations are summarised in this statement within the Distribution segment commentary.

 

Two other acquisitions were completed in the period. Kooga Rugby Limited, based in Rochdale, was acquired for a nominal sum on 3 July 2009. Duffer of St George Limited, a fashion brand company, whose brand 'The Duffer of St George' is now used as an own brand in the JD stores, was acquired for £0.9 million on 24 November 2009.

 

Sports Fascias

 

The Sports Fascias' total revenue increased by 10% during the period to £615.5 million (2009: £559.2 million), including post-acquisition revenue from newly acquired Chausport of £27.7 million. Like for like sales in the retail Sports Fascias for the year were up 2.3% (2009: 3.3%).

 

The Sports Fascias' results reported last year included those of Topgrade but given the development of the Group over the last year we have split the operations into three segments with the additional one being Distribution. This now includes Topgrade which previously diluted the margin in the Sports Fascias. Under this new segmental presentation, the gross margin in the Sports Fascias rose from 50.5% to 50.6%. We are particularly pleased with this gross margin performance given uncertainties over the impact of sterling weakness at the start of the year and attribute this to further improvement in the management of terminal stocks, continued strength in our own brands, and the benefits to us from competitor failures and weaknesses.

 

As a result of improved margin and continuing enhancement of the store portfolio and its efficiencies, the operating profit (before exceptional items) of the Sports Fascias rose to £64.1 million (2009: £54.2 million) in the year, including a contribution of £0.7 million from Chausport.

 

The programme of store development has continued with 12 new JD and 2 Size? store openings and 17 major store refurbishments (15 JD, 1 Chausport and 1 Size?). This substantial refurbishment programme started in 2007 and will continue. The store refurbishments often result in full store closures for a number of weeks but we expect this to be justified by their subsequent performance. 17 Sports Fascias stores were closed in the period including 3 smaller Chausport stores and 2 JD stores which were transferred to Bank.

 

Fashion Fascias

 

The Fashion Fascias are Bank and Scotts. The results of Deakins were previously included with those of the Fashion Fascias but are now included in those of the Distribution segment.

 

The Bank Fascia stores sell largely branded fashion to both males and females, predominantly for the teenage to mid twenties sector. Bank is expected to be the core of future Fashion Fascias' growth. In the year the store portfolio grew from 54 stores to 65 stores, still based predominantly in the North and the Midlands.  Total revenue in the year was £82.8 million (2009: £66.5 million), up 4.7% organically (2009: +9.5%). Operating profit (before exceptional items) was £3.0 million (2009: £1.2 million). The Board remains confident that there is a significant opportunity to grow operating margin in this Fascia through better stock management, own brand development and disciplined store rollout. Gross margin achieved in the year was 48.4% (2009: 46.1%).

 

The Scotts Fascia stores sell branded fashion to younger males and there were 38 stores at the year end, again, largely in the North and the Midlands. Total revenue in the year was £31.8 million (2009: £32.0 million) and the operating profit (before exceptional items) was £0.3 million (2009 loss: £1.0 million), helped by an achieved gross margin of 47.4% (2009: 45.2%) and efficiencies achieved through prior year store rationalisation. Like for like sales rose by 1.2% (2009: +5.1%). The start to the new year has been relatively disappointing and consequently we have very recently strengthened the management team.

 

Distribution

 

Topgrade (which is 51% owned) is now one of the two major parts of the Distribution segment. It was bought with the intention of adding a new business selling sports and fashion brands at discounted prices through catalogues and online, complementing its existing end of line wholesaling operation. This has been launched as Get The Label (www.getthelabel.com) in the current year and has made a very encouraging start which has continued in the new year. It is not expected to be profitable this year or next and total revenues for Topgrade of £19.7 million (2009: £12.6 million) and an operating loss of £0.4 million (2009 profit: £0.1 million) were in line with our expectations.

 

The second major part of the Distribution segment is the newly acquired UK and overseas Canterbury operations which contributed revenue of £15.4 million and an operating profit of £0.1 million in the short periods they have been part of the Group. Canterbury's prospects have already been outlined earlier in this statement under Acquisitions.

 

The other parts of the Distribution segment are Kooga Rugby (which is also referred to under Acquisitions) and Deakins, the predominantly fashion footwear brand, which continues to breakeven on a low turnover with both group companies and external customers.

 

Joint Venture

 

Our 49% owned joint venture, Focus Brands Limited, is involved in the design, sourcing and distribution of footwear and apparel both for own brand and under license brands for both group and external customers. Our share of operating results for the year was an operating profit before exceptional items of £0.5 million (2009 loss: £0.2 million).

 

Group Performance

 

Revenue

 

Total revenue increased by 14.7% in the year to £769.8 million (2009: £670.9 million) principally as a result of three factors: the Group's positive like for like sales performance of 2.5%, net store openings and £48.1 million of sales from newly acquired operations.

 

Gross margin

 

The improved gross margin performance in the UK & Ireland retail fascias has been commented on earlier in this statement. It is only the lower margins realised in Chausport and the Distribution segment, combined with the increased sales in this segment, which have resulted in overall group gross margin being held at 49.3%.

 

Operating profits

 

Operating profit (before exceptional items) increased by £12.8 million to £67.3 million (2009: £54.5 million), a 24% increase on last year which follows a 24% rise in the previous year. Group operating margin (before exceptional items) has therefore increased by a further 0.6% to 8.7% (2009: 8.1%).

 

Following a decrease in the exceptional items to £5.0 million (2009: £16.3 million), Group operating profit rose significantly from £38.2 million to £62.3 million.

 

The exceptional items (excluding share of exceptional items in joint venture) comprise: 

 


 £m



Impairment of goodwill in Scotts store portfolio

2.6

Loss on disposal of fixed assets

2.2

Onerous lease provision

3.9

Impairment of fixed assets in underperforming stores

0.4

Profit on disposal of investment in JJB Sports Plc

(4.1)



Total exceptional charge

5.0



 

The share of exceptional items of joint venture (Focus Brands) consists primarily of the reversal of an unrealised gain on exchange contracts booked in the year to 31 January 2009 under IAS 39 'Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement'.

 

Working capital and financing

 

Net financing costs have decreased from £0.7 million to £0.4 million, principally as a result of lower utilisation of debt facilities combined with lower cost of debt.

 

Year end net cash of £60.5 million represented a £37.0 million improvement on the position at January 2009 (£23.5 million). This net cash balance has been achieved after expenditure on acquisitions and associated asset purchases in the year (excluding the investment in JJB Sports Plc) totalling £15.8 million (2009: £1.4 million). Net proceeds from the disposal of the investment in JJB Sports Plc after allowing for a full participation in the placing and rights issue were £6.1 million.

 

Net capital expenditure including disposal costs and premia received decreased in the year to £23.0 million (2009: £30.1 million) with capital expenditure excluding disposal costs decreasing by £5.9 million to £22.9 million (2009: £28.8 million). This decrease does not mean that the Group is reducing its investment programme and is more a function of the timing of projects. Accordingly, the Board would expect the capital expenditure in the year to January 2011 to exceed the amount spent in the year to January 2010 with significant investment in both the Bank and Chausport fascias. The decrease in capital expenditure was focused on the Sports Fascias where the spend reduced by £8.7 million to £14.9 million with expenditure increasing in the Fashion Fascias by £2.4 million to £7.4 million reflecting the investment in the Bank Fashion chain. The capital expenditure in the year included £10.2 million on new stores and £10.8 million on refurbishments (including the transfer of 3 stores between fascias).

 

Working capital remains well controlled and suppliers continue to be paid to agreed terms and settlement discounts are taken whenever due.

 

Store Portfolio

 

We have made a further significant investment in the store portfolio during the year with expenditure on both new stores and refurbishments of existing space. We have also continued to rationalise our store portfolio wherever possible but, with the current economic climate impacting heavily on retail property occupancy levels, it has become much more difficult to dispose of underperforming and/or duplicate stores.

 

There has been no net increase in the number of JD & Size? stores with 14 new stores offset by 12 closures and the transfer of 2 stores to Bank. However, there has been a net addition of 11 stores to the Bank Fascia with 14 store openings (including the 2 transferred from JD and 1 transferred from Scotts) offset by the closure of 3 stores.

 

We have refurbished a total of 22 stores (including transfers of space between fascias) in the year. This means that over the last three years we have opened a total of 67 stores and refurbished a further 94 stores.

 

During the year we also acquired Chausport SA. On acquisition, Chausport had 78 small stores, in premium locations, in town centres and shopping centres across France. Three loss making stores were subsequently disposed in the period after acquisition.

Dividends and Earnings per Share

 

The Board proposes paying a final dividend of 14.70p (2009: 8.90p) bringing the total dividend payable for the year to 18.00p (2009: 12.00p) per ordinary share. The proposed final dividend will be paid on 2 August 2010 to all shareholders on the register at 7 May 2010. The final dividend has been increased by 65% with total dividends payable for the year increased by 50%. This follows a 41% increase in the full year dividend in the prior year.

 

The adjusted earnings per ordinary share before exceptional items were 93.64p (2009: 72.33p).

 

The basic earnings per ordinary share were 88.16p (2009: 50.49p).

 

Employees

 

The Group's excellent results would not have been possible without the support of a dedicated workforce for which the Board is very grateful. We are committed to continue increasing training and other support to enhance both their career prospects and our own customer service. 

 

Current Trading and Outlook

 

Trading in the 10 weeks to 10 April 2010 has been encouraging with UK and Ireland retail like for like sales up 2.0% (Sports Fascias 3.0%; Fashion Fascias -3.5%) on an underlying basis taking into account the change in the timing of Easter and school holidays. Although like for like sales are lower, the performance of the Fashion Fascias has benefitted from a 2% improvement in gross margin in the same period. Chausport has started the year well. It is too early in the year to report on progress in the Distribution business. We recognise the increasing challenges of strong comparatives and the current economic and fiscal threats to consumers' expenditure. A further update will be made in our Interim Management Statement in June.

 

The Board remains focused on continuing to deliver operational and financial progress for the Group over the long term. Opportunities for profit growth overseas, the rollout of our principal Fashion Fascia, development of our differentiated and own brand proposition, and growth in our Distribution business all help to reduce threats to Group profitability and give us the opportunity to maintain the positive momentum in our business.

1.   Segmental analysis

 

The Group has adopted IFRS 8 'Operating Segments' for the current period. IFRS 8 requires operating segments to be identified on the basis of internal reports about components of the Group that are regularly reviewed by the Chief Operating Decision Maker to allocate resources to the segments and to assess their performance. The Chief Operating Decision Maker is considered to be the Executive Chairman of JD Sports Fashion Plc.

 

In prior years, segment information reported externally was analysed on the basis of the categories of product sold by the Group (Sport or Fashion). However, information reported to the Chief Operating Decision Maker is focused more on the nature of the businesses within the Group which has changed significantly in the current year, due to the acquisition of a number of distribution businesses. The Group's reportable segments under IFRS 8 are therefore as follows:

 

·      Sport retail - includes the results of the sport retail trading companies JD Sports Fashion Plc, John David Sports Fashion (Ireland) Limited, Chausport SA and Duffer of St George Limited

·      Fashion retail - includes the results of the fashion retail trading companies Bank Fashion Limited and RD Scott Limited

·      Distribution businesses - includes the results of the distribution companies Topgrade Sportswear Limited, Nicholas Deakins Limited, Canterbury Limited (including global subsidiary companies) and Kooga Rugby Limited

 

The Chief Operating Decision Maker receives and reviews segmental operating profit. Certain central administrative costs including Group Directors' salaries are included within the Group's core 'Sport retail' result. This is consistent with the results as reported to the Chief Operating Decision Maker.

 

IFRS 8 requires disclosure of information regarding revenue from major products and customers. The majority of the Group's revenue is derived from the retail of a wide range of apparel, footwear and accessories to the general public. As such, the disclosure of revenues from major products and customers is not appropriate.

 

Intersegment transactions are undertaken in the ordinary course of business on arms length terms.

 

The Board consider that certain items are cross divisional in nature and cannot be allocated between the segments on a meaningful basis.  The share of results of joint venture is presented as unallocated in the following tables, as this entity has trading relationships with companies in all of the three segments.  An asset of £635,000 (2009: £1,108,000) for the equity accounted investment in joint venture is included within the unallocated segment.  Net funding costs and taxation are treated as unallocated reflecting the nature of the Group's syndicated borrowing facilities and its tax group.  A liability of £11,537,000 (2009: £8,774,000) for taxation is included within the unallocated segment.

  

Each segment is shown net of intercompany transactions and balances within that segment. The eliminations remove intercompany transactions and balances between different segments which primarily relate to the net down of long term loans and short term working capital funding provided by JD Sports Fashion Plc (within Sport retail) to other companies in the Group and intercompany trading between companies in different segments.

Basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share

 

The calculation of basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share at 30 January 2010 is based on the profit for the period attributable to equity holders of the parent of £42,900,000 (2009: £24,379,000) and a weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the 52 weeks ended 30 January 2010 of 48,661,658 (2009: 48,287,502).

The Board believe that the excess of consideration paid over net identifiable liabilities is best considered as goodwill on acquisition, representing customer loyalty and employee expertise. The Kooga brand has been identified as a separate intangible asset and has been valued using the 'royalty relief' method of valuation, which takes projected future sales, applies a royalty rate to them and discounts the projected future post tax royalties to arrive at a net present value. This amount is included in intangible assets as a brand name.
