The Group’s performance in the first half of 2022 has been marked by an exceptional phase of growth, building on the strong momentum achieved in 2021. For the first six months of 2022, the Group recorded revenue of EUR 202 million, representing industry-leading growth of 73 percent compared to the same period in 2021.

The strong performance was driven by outstanding growth in Europe and North America, where revenue grew 91 percent and 58 percent year-over-year respectively, a testament to the Group’s solid foundation in its five brands’ home turf and the success of its global growth strategies. Notwithstanding the impact of COVID-19 restrictions in China for much of the period, sales in the market increased by 32 percent year-over-year, while sales in the rest of Asia grew 194 percent year-over-year as the brands continued to penetrate new high-potential markets.
