Retail sales growth of 30.7 per cent was significantly stronger than forecast, both in the UK and overseas. Unhindered by the poor weather, Ted has significantly outperformed its UK peers...we reiterate our buy stance.

FREDDIE GEORGE | CANTOR FITZGERALD
Ted Baker has posted a strong set of figures. The strategy of accelerating development overseas through new stores and concessions appears to be working well and is set to boost earnings growth over the medium term. But it is not without risks.

It has delivered sales growth well ahead of expectations...Retail sales are up 30.7 per cent off a 13.4 per cent rise in space, suggesting double digit sales density growth. This has come across all markets but we think the UK has been a major driver.
