Additionally, its PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal brands both reported revenue increases of 107% to £374m and 96% to £47.9m respectively during the period.
The online retailer said trading in the first few weeks of the new financial year has been “encouraging”, and group revenue growth for the year is expected to be 25% to 30% – with an adjusted EBITDA margin of around 10% and capital expenditure in the region of £50 to £60m.
John Lyttle, CEO, said: “I am very excited to have joined the Boohoo group at this key stage of its growth, with the group’s disruptive and proven business model having delivered yet another excellent set of financial and operational results.

He added: “This has confirmed my belief and optimism that the group’s investments into its brands and infrastructure have allowed it to develop a scalable multi-brand platform that is well-positioned to disrupt, gain market share and capitalise on what is a truly global opportunity.”
