Boohoo’s gross margin was down to 57% following investments in price and customer proposition.

The online retailer has increased its full-year sales forecast from 30% to 35%.

Boohoo’s joint chief executives Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane said: “We have continued to optimise the mix of promotional and marketing spend to drive strong retail growth, reducing the proportion of marketing expenditure.

“Operational successes include the new warehouse extension entering into full service, giving us the capacity required for business expansion, and the new UK app, which has improved the overall shopping experience.”
