Inditex Q2 figures beat estimates

The pandemic has been kind to Inditex. The owner of #Zara, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, and Oysho reported a #Q2 net profit of €214 million, the figures coming in higher than the €96 million forecasted by Refinitiv. 

Its online sales increased by 74% during the quarter as more people bought from home because of the pandemic.

The net loss figure came in at €195 million, while the sales were down 37%. Inditex’s overall results are satisfying, given the current situation according to its executive chairman, Pablo Isla. 

Currently, 98% of its stores are open, and so far, it has reported a steady return to normality regarding store sales. Despite the ongoing recovery, the sales are still 11% lower than the same time last year.

Inditex will pay dividends of €0.35 per share. 

Following the report, Inditex stock price gained 6%.
