Online retailer MySale Group PLC (LON:MYSL) said on Tuesday it expects underlying earnings for the year to reach the top end of market forecasts, boosted by revenue growth of 10%.

Shares in the company, which has online flash-sales and retail websites in Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia and the UK, jumped 14.8% to 68.8p in morning trading.

The group estimates underlying EBITDA of A$11.8mln for the year ended 30 June 2018, up from A$8.7mln last year.

Revenues are expected to rise to A$295mln from A$268mln last year.

Gross margins have also improved, supported by an increase in own-buy inventory.

New international and local strategic partnerships led to an increase in the product range, with the available stock keeping unit (SKU) count now exceeding one million.
