PARIS — Hennes & Mauritz AB said total sales in local currencies rose 14 percent in January, a mild decrease versus the previous month.
The Swedish fashion retailer provided only a percentage figure, and no longer breaks out same-store sales data. Total sales include value-added taxes.
In December, sales rose 15 percent, following a 10 percent gain in November. Sales in local currencies rose 15 percent in January 2014.
H&M noted its store count came to 3,541 on Jan. 31 versus 3,184 on the same date in 2014.
The fast-fashion group will publish quarterly results on March 24.
