Profits fall as N Brown puts digital first

PLUS-size, multi-channel fashion business N Brown, has reported a sharp fall in profits during a year of "step change" as it moved away from its direct mail roots to digital.

The Manchester company, which owns brands such as Simply Be, JD Williams, Jacamo, Figleaves and High & Mighty, saw pre-exceptional profits fall 13.4% to £86.2m on revenue largely flat at £818m (2014 £818.9m) in the year to February 28.
