Dunelm

Dunelm Group reported its third quarter results for the 13-week period ended 13 March 2019 on Thursday, causing shares to bounce.

The homeware retailer said that revenue increased 12.5% year-on-year to £264.6 million, on the back of higher online sales.

Dunelm Group also enjoyed a stronger performance thanks to the closure of its Worldstores and Kiddicare websites.

Despite acknowledging continued political and economic uncertainty, the company said that withstanding no shifts in demand, they do not expect this to significantly affect the remainder of the year.

As such, the company said it excepts to report full-year profit before tax ‘slightly ahead of the top of the range of current analysts’ forecasts’.

Nick Wilkinson, Dunelm’s Chief Executive also commented on the latest results:

Our performance was also buoyed by a positive homewares market.

“Our multichannel proposition is improving all the time and we are excited about the opportunities ahead of us as we continue to invest in and develop our digital capabilities.”
