Prada Are Sitting More Than Comfortably - 06/08/10

The rumour mill has been in overdrive lately about a possible IPO for Prada. And as the company have released their 29% revenue increase for the first half this week, the whiff of the suspected IPO is back yet again, as they continue to evaluate the most suitable moment to jump to action. Prada experienced a whopping 41% increase in retail sales, which pushed the 29% profit result, bringing in $1.2 billion.

Whilst revenue was the only statistic reported in the statement, we can expect to see greater detail of their currently comfortable position later in September. With 30 new stores planned for this year, set to focus on the Asia-Pacific, Prada’s most dynamic region remains the Far East, where sales rose 70%.
