Retailer Sports Direct International said it was on track to meet its full-year earnings forecast after seeing group sales rise 11.2% in the three months to 18 February.
Sports retail sales were up 6.9% in the third quarter, while premium lifestyle revenues surged up 52.5% to GBP71.2m and the company’s brands division posted a sales increase of 15.5% to GBP54.3m.
