Joint CEOs Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane said in a statement: “We are pleased to report excellent progress for the group in the first half of the year across all our brands. boohoo’s revenue has continued to grow across all geographies, with international growth being strongest as we continue to increase our market share overseas, and the newly acquired PrettyLittleThing brand has exceeded our growth expectations.”

    All of the above sounds great BUT margins are down and so are the shares by around 20% in the last two days!
    Revenue growth is great and margin can be sacrificed short term but investors will want to see this erosion of margin halted. To be fair the growth of Boohoo has been incredible, making even ASOS seem a little pedestrian!
