Michael Hill reports increased sales for past 12 months

Michael Hill International (MHI) has released a 12-month trading update, showing a 6 per cent sales increase and the opening of 20 stores across Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

The group recorded $583 million in total sales for the 12 months ended 30 June 2017. Same-store sales rose 1.5 per cent to $538.5 million.

Michael Hill, which is MHI’s main revenue stream, generated $567.6 million during the period, representing a 5 per cent increase.

The company’s other business, Emma & Roe, recorded a 62.1 per cent rise to $15.5 million.

In Australia, the jewellery chain reported a 4.1 per cent all store sales increase to $322 million, while sales in New Zealand decreased 0.7 per cent to $122 million. It was noted that the New Zealand result followed a strong 7.2 per cent revenue rise the previous year.

Canada sales rose 19.2 per cent to $113 million; however, US sales fell 12.5 per cent to $12.4 million.

New opportunities

The company’s financial report also indicated plans to strengthen the Emma & Roe business, which recently completed the first full year of trade.

According to the MHI statement, 13 Emma & Roe stores opened across Queensland and NSW in the 12 months to 30 June.

“The business is currently conducting a review of the [Emma & Roe] brand, after its first full year of trade, to ensure it is positioned to the best advantage for the future, and any recommendations coming out of that review will be implemented in the 17-18 year,” the statement read. “We have now established a strategic foothold in the large and lucrative markets of Queensland and New South Wales and a focus will be on improvement of this solid store base.”

In addition to the 13 Emma & Roe store openings, there were 14 Michael Hill store openings and seven closures. This resulted in 333 stores trading as at 30 June 2017 – 304 Michael Hill stores and 29 Emma & Roe stores. There were a total of 166 Michael Hill stores in Australia at the end of the financial year.

The company’s full-year results are expected to be released on 21 August 2017.
