The move comes after Inditex paused its operation in Russia on 5 March.

In a securities market disclosure, Inditex said the deal would allow the preservation of a substantial number of jobs generated by Inditex Group in Russia, as it includes the transfer of most of the lease contracts related to stores. 

Daher Group has prominent interests in the retail and real estate industry.

“If in future Inditex considers that new circumstances allow the return of the Group’s brands to this market, Inditex and the Daher group have the option of a potential collaboration through a franchise agreement,” Inditex added.

The Pull & Bear and Bershka owner estimates the provision included in the first half 2022 financial statements sufficiently covers the impact of the termination of the group’s business activities in the Russian Federation.

Last month, Inditex published its half-year results in which it said net income reached “historic highs”.
