Kurt Geiger registered a sales increase of 3.1 percent to £334.6 million (€389.9m-$429.5m) for the year to Jan. 26, despite a £4.1 million (€4.8m-$5.3m) hit from the collapse of the House of Fraser, where Kurt Geiger stocked shoes. Digital sales were up by 14.4 percent versus 2018. Handbags were the fastest growing category, posting a 23 percent increase over last year. The company's operating profit rose by 13.4 percent to £27.9 million (€32.5m-$35.8m), including the impact of non-recurring items such as the £4.1 million (€4.8m-$5.3m) in bad debt incurred after House of Fraser's administration. Excluding non-recurring items, operating profit would be £32.1 million (€37.4m-$41.2m), namely a 30 percent increase from 2018.
