Bestseller India has made an unexpected profit in the latest year, despite the pandemic. The better-than-expected outcome means it will avoid its first-ever annual loss.
It also means it has been able to pay back the DKK81 million (€10.9 million) support package it received from the Danish government earlier this year.
The company also owns the Only and Selected brands, as well as a raft of other fashion labels.
Another upside of the fact that the firm remains profitable is that it’s also “gradually looking into recruitment – both in terms of rehiring colleagues and identifying new candidates”.
The company employs around 17,000 people globally with 3,300 of them being in its domestic Danish market. At the height of the pandemic, it laid off 750 people. The firm’s final accounts will close in October.
