Inditex has published results for its first fiscal quarter (February-April), reflecting as expected the strong impact of the coronavirus: historical losses of €409 million, positive EBITDA although 78% lower than in Q1’19, and a 44% drop in revenues. Nevertheless, the company confirmed the payment of a dividend against 2019 results of 0.35 euros/share, 60% less than a year earlier.
Inditex recorded net income of 3.63 billion euros in the fiscal year 2019-2020 (from 1 February 2019 to 31 January 2020), a rise of 6% compared to a year earlier. This was after making a 287 million euros provision in the Gross Margin to adjust the estimated value of the spring/summer campaign’s inventory affected by the Covid pandemic. Without this impact, its Gross Margin would have amounted to 16.09 billion euros, 56.9% of sales.
