Mulberry Group plc

House of Fraser and UK Trading Update

Following the recent announcement of House of Fraser's entry into administration and the selective acquisition of assets by Sports Direct International plc, Mulberry Group plc ("the Group" or "Mulberry") has considered the impact on the Group's financial results for the year to 31 March 2019.

Mulberry operates 21 House of Fraser concessions, employing 88 people across the UK as part of the Group's global store and digital network. Following a review of debtor balances, fixed assets and potential costs that may result from restructuring, the Group is expecting to provide GBP3 million for exceptional costs in the results for the six months to 30 September 2018.

Since the Group reported in June 2018, the UK market has continued to remain challenging and sales in House of Fraser stores have been particularly affected. If these sales trends in the UK continue into the key trading period of the second half of the financial year, the Group's profit for the whole year will be materially reduced.

Trading in the rest of the world continues to develop broadly in line with management's expectations and, in August, the Group completed the previously announced transaction with its distribution partner to create Mulberry Korea, which became a subsidiary from that date.

The Group is in a strong cash position and continues to follow its strategy to develop Mulberry into a global luxury brand. Over the past two years the Group has enhanced the international network, particularly in Asia, and will continue to invest in the omni-channel experience and marketing across its international markets.
