  1. Underlying results have been adjusted to reflect the impact of the gain/loss recognised on fair valuing deferred consideration, financial derivatives and exceptional items. In addition, the prior periods have been adjusted to reflect the impact of the revaluation of inventory within SuperGroup Europe BVBA at acquisition (IFRS 3 revised requirement) and the impact of including the prior year's freight and duty costs into inventory. All references to underlying in this statement are after making these adjustments. Retail and Wholesale are presented before Group overheads and royalties unless stated otherwise.
