Qliro Group comments on the fourth quarter
Nelly, a Qliro Group subsidiary, is expected to reach positive operating result before depreciation for the full year, but negative during the fourth quarter. The company has high inventory levels and has therefore made clearance sales while the cost of sales increased in a declining fashion market. As previously communicated, Qliro Group’s result for the quarter is also impacted by higher costs to make Qliro AB ready for listing in the first half of 2020.
“The fashion market has been declining with high campaign activity from many participants in the market. To manage inventory levels, we have made clearance sales, which negatively affected the product margin. In addition, the cost of sales has increased. Nelly has a strong position in its niche of fashion, and we have a clear plan to return to profitability,” says Marcus Lindqvist acting CEO of Nelly and CEO of Qliro Group.
