HYDec18 update from the international online retailer,


As announced on 10 Dec 2018 the group experienced challenging trading in the first half and anticipates an underlying EBITDA loss in the first half.

Revenue has also been impacted by the planned reduction in the group's offline activities during FY19.


As previously outlined, actions have been taken to accelerate the group's cost saving programme, via increased technology platform efficiencies and rationalised operations.  An improved product mix and increased local sourcing have also been put in place to improve gross profit margins. Annualised cost savings in excess of A$10m are anticipated which, in combination with improved margins, will result in a significantly improved performance in the second half. The group anticipates delivering a small underlying EBITDA profit for the full year.
