The White Company 071

The White Company has posted an uplift in full-year profits as investments in IT and its infrastructure helped it navigate the “turbulent retail environment”.

The fashion and homewares business said operating profit increased 26% to £14.4m during the 52 weeks to April 6.

Sales increased 7% to £217.4m over the same timeframe.

The White Company has however changed its year-end date to the end of July to better align with its parent company.

Over the broader 70-week period to August 3, the retailer’s operating profit came in at £13.6m – a 21% increase on the prior year.
