• Q4 group revenues up 31% to GBP145.2m
  • Retail sales up 31% to GBP141m
  • International sales surge 42% to GBP91.2m

Online fashion retailer Asos recorded a 31% increase in fourth quarter revenues, boosted by a strong performance from the company’s overseas operations.

Retail sales in the US, EU and rest of the world rose 65%, 22% and 53% respectively, with the effect that international sales now account for 65% of the company’s total, up from 60% in last year’s fourth quarter.

Asos said it had 5m active customers at the close of the quarter on 31 August, up 35% year-on-year.

“Our sales performance in those markets where we have a website continues to outperform,” said Nick Robertson, company CEO.

Retail gross margin improved by 70bps in the period, he added, predicting that profit for the year was expected to be in line with expectations.
