“Random theft” forces SuperGroup to reveal 53.1% jump in profits


Fashion retailer SuperGroup has been forced into revealing its full year profits ahead of schedule after a draft of their preliminary results was stolen from an employee.

The Superdry owners stated that a “random theft from an employee” pushed them to reveal huge rises in revenues ahead of the scheduled July 6 announcement.

In the 52 weeks to April 29 Supergroup posted a pre-tax profit jump of 53.1 per cent to £84.8 million.

Revenues saw a similarly outstanding boost of 27.4 per cent to £752 million alongside like-for-like sales growth of 12.7 per cent.

A full version of the results are now set for Monday 3 July.
