Jimmy Choo PLC reports 12% increase in net revenues for the Year Ended 31 December 2014

Jimmy Choo PLC, the British luxury brand specialising in shoes and accessories, today announced a significant increase in net revenues for the year ended 31 December 2014.  The revenue announcement also marks Jimmy Choo's maiden performance figures following the successful IPO of the Company in October 2014.


Net Revenue growth of 12.0% at constant currency to £299.1m (6.2% at reported rates)

-      Retail net revenue growth of 15.4% at constant currency (8.7% at reported rates)

-      Like for like growth of 5.7%

-      Wholesale net revenue growth of 6.3% at constant rates (1.9% at reported rates)

New Store Concept successfully launched

-      New Bond Street reopened as three floor Global Flagship

Directly Operated Stores (DOS) increased by 9 in the year and 6 renovated

-      15 stores now in the New Store Concept

Asia including Japan continues strong growth driven by new DOS and strong organic growth


Commenting on the results, Pierre Denis, CEO of Jimmy Choo PLC said:

"We are delighted with this record net revenue performance, with a mix of like for like, retail and wholesale growth underlined by the success of our products.  Our focus on shoes and dedication to product quality has ensured we produced innovative products which resonate strongly with our clients around the world.  As these are our maiden performance figures since the successful IPO, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our incredibly talented and hard-working teams for their unstinting commitment and enthusiasm."

Growth at constant currency























In what has been a challenging year for the industry, Jimmy Choo has performed strongly in 2014, with double digit net revenue growth at constant currency driven by a mix of like for like growth from strong product authority and retail excellence, new store openings with a focus on China and continued growth in partnership with our wholesale customers. Net revenue grew by 12.0% on a constant currency basis (6.2% on a reported currency basis) to £299.1m in 2014, driven by strong performance in both ladies' and men's shoes.   

Shoes were the main driver of net revenue growth in 2014, with accessories volumes also growing, driven by small leather goods.  Our product authority was underlined in the second half of the year, as Sandra was awarded the Best Shoe collection award at the Prix d'Excellence de la Mode Marie Claire during Paris Fashion Week.  While still a small component of the business, Men's continued to be our fastest growing segment with notable success in Asia, especially Japan and increasing penetration in other geographies overall.

Regionally, Asia remains our strongest growth region, with strong response to our collections and increasing brand penetration driving like for like supported by our continued build out of new stores.  Despite the extent of the devaluation of the Yen, our Japanese business grew strongly, driven by a positive response to the launch of CHOO.080.   

Retail net revenues grew by 15.4% at constant rates (8.7% at reported rates) to £193m, (64% of net revenues) as we continued to open new DOS and began the process of renovating our existing portfolio of stores in the New Store Concept unveiled in H1.  Like for like growth in constant currency terms was 5.7% despite the impact of the renovation programme, which included the closure of our New Bond Street flagship for half of the year, supported by a strong online contribution. Sales performance in new concept stores post renovation has run consistently above that in old concept stores.

10 new DOS were opened in the year, and 1 was closed, giving a total DOS portfolio of 125 at 31 December 2014.  This measured DOS growth is expected to continue, with 10-15 new DOS per annum going forward.  In addition, building on the encouraging initial results from the New Store Concept, a further 10-15 existing DOS are expected to be renovated each year.
