PARIS — Hennes & Mauritz AB resumed a double-digit pace to close out 2015, reporting that total sales in local currencies gained 10 percent in December.
That marked an improvement over November, when the Swedish fashion giant blamed mild weather for a meager 4 percent gain.
The company provided only a percentage figure, and no longer breaks out same-store sales data. Total sales include value-added taxes, or VAT.
H&M had posted a 12 percent gain in October and an 11 percent increase in September.
On Friday, H&M noted its store count came to 3,957 on Dec. 31 versus 3,537 on the same date in 2014.
H&M is scheduled to release its full results for the financial year, including profits, on Jan. 28, 2016.
