Sales trends.

SUSTAINABLE SUCCESS: MARC O’POLO GENERATES OVER A HALF BILLION EUROS IN FISCAL YEAR 2021/2022

The Marc O'Polo Group achieved preliminary brand sales of 592 million euros in fiscal year 2021/22 (June 1, 2021, to May 31, 2022), including through its licensing business. This represents an increase of 35 percent compared to the previous year. In terms of earnings before taxes (EBIT), the premium casual lifestyle brand grew disproportionately, despite high investments in the new "House of Product" building, the introduction of an ERP system and the sustainability and internationalization strategy.

Milestones in the past fiscal year include the entering of 18 additional international markets, the opening of the Paris store and showroom as an international hub, the large-scale image campaign on the topic of sustainability, which was also broadcast on TV for the first time, and the "Good" rating from the Fair Wear Foundation.

Marc O'Polo is consistently working on the implementation of its sustainability strategy '01 Journey 10 Pathways'. As early as next year, all products will be sustainable, and by 2025 the company is aiming for climate neutrality on both the corporate and product sides.

Marc O'Polo has always stood for a strong team spirit. This was confirmed by the renowned "Working in Fashion” employer ranking from industry magazine TextilWirtschaft last fall. Marc O'Polo was the only medium-sized company to earn a top position, coming in second overall.
