Taking a look at the week ahead for the footwear and apparel industry, here is news editor Joe Ayling's snapshot of just-style's latest news and insights agenda.

UK clothing giant Marks and Spencer (M&S) reports its full-year profits this week, revealing to its employees what kind of bonus they can expect.

It will be the last set of results under outgoing CEO Sir Stuart Rose after he made way for supermarket guru Marc Bolland earlier in the month.

Sir Stuart remains as chairman at M&S while the company lines up his successor, with UK media linking former Cadbury chairman Roger Carr with the role.

Analysts at Investec Bank expect a positive swansong to Sir Stuart’s tenure, forecasting full-year earnings growth of 1.9%.

There will also be preliminary FY sales statements from UK firms Burberry and JJB Sports this week.

Burberry announced plans to shut down a facility in Spain during February, expecting a one-off associated charge between EUR50m (US$79m) - EUR70m. Nonetheless, Burberry posted a 12% growth in third quarter revenue and expects results at the top end of expectations.

JJB, meanwhile, has stayed out of the limelight in recent months, after a turbulent 2009. The sporting goods chain announced the departure of chairman Sir David Jones in January for health reasons.

Meanwhile, as a number of sportswear firms rev up their marketing plans for the forthcoming World Cup, just-style will be analysing the 'end goals' through its regular In the Money feature this week.
