PARIS — Hennes & Mauritz AB said sales increased 14 percent in June, reflecting a positive calendar effect of approximately three percentage points.
The company profited from more trading days due to different timings of the Pentecost and Corpus Christi holidays, and one fewer Sunday.
The data provided by the Swedish retailer is expressed in local currencies and includes value-added tax. The company provided no other detail on the numbers.
June’s gain compares to a 10 percent improvement in both May and April.
H&M noted its global store count stood at 3,642 as of June 30 versus 3,301 on the same date in 2014.
The retailer is to report July figures on Aug. 17.
