Nick Robertson, CEO, commented:

""I am pleased to report strong trading for the three months to 30 November 2012 with total retail sales up 30% to £166m.

Our UK performance was ahead of expectations at +24%, driven by better conversion of traffic alongside continued investment in both our proposition and pricing. Our International business grew by +34% and now accounts for 63% of our total retail sales. We achieved +57% growth in the US, +42% growth in ROW, and +15% growth within the EU. Once again the performance of countries where we have dedicated websites was significantly better than the EU performance as a whole.

The retail gross margin performance reflects a combination of a particularly strong comparative period, the UK accounting for a larger percentage of the total retail sales mix than initially planned and continued price reinvestment.

We remain positive in our outlook and continue to trade in line with expectations."
