JD Sports is still fighting fit
JD Sports Fashion’s (JD.) record full year results (17 Apr) confirm the athleisure boom among youthful gym-goers and fashion-conscious consumers still has legs.
Shrugging off the wider UK retail malaise, the trainers-to-gym kit seller ‘remains confident in the robustness and international potential of the JD proposition’, management ‘excited by the major developments ahead’.
International development of the JD brand continues, while the acquisition of US footwear seller Finish Line could transform growth prospects in the world’s biggest sport lifestyle footwear and apparel market. (JC)
