Group chief executive Sebastian James commented: “Overall sales in the period have grown by 5% on a like-for-like basis and profit before tax has grown by 30%. Best of all, customer satisfaction continues to show good year-on-year progress across the business.”

He added: “We have seen a barnstorming performance from our UK & Ireland division with like-for-like sales growth of 6% in the first half and 11% in Q2. This has been driven by continued improvements in price and service, competitive changes, technology launches and some recovery in the economy.”

He continued: “The integration of our business seems to be going better than I dared hope, and our integrated stores are trading very well which augurs well for the future. There is still much, much more to do, but I have been struck by the willingness of people at all levels and from all parts of the business to roll up their sleeves and get on with it. I also feel, every day, how lucky we are to have such a smart and committed team. I would like to use this opportunity to thank them for their hard work.”

The company’s ‘Christmas ’14/’15 Trading Statement’, which will include details of performance over the key festive period, is set to be released January 21.
