Oliver Bonas is celebrating a highly successful year, with both sales and profits experiencing significant growth. Despite facing challenges due to the cost-of-living crisis in the UK fashion sector, the company managed to maintain strong sales. Specializing in mid-level priced fashion, jewellery, and homewares, Oliver Bonas reported a substantial increase in sales from £92.88 million in 2021 to £115.03 million in 2022. This boost in revenue resulted in operating profit rising to £9.28 million from £7.7 million, and profit after tax soaring to £7.62 million from £5.65 million in the previous year.

2022 marked Oliver Bonas’ first full year of trade since the beginning of the pandemic, and the company made the most of it. Despite approaching the year with cautious optimism, Oliver Bonas experienced a high level of pent-up demand. Consequently, they were able to expand their workforce by 20% across all their offices, warehouses, and stores. In fact, they even opened eight new stores and upsized two more throughout the year.

Although web sales followed the industry trend of decreasing after the initial surge during the pandemic, Oliver Bonas only experienced a marginal decrease. The company also observed a return to normal levels of returns, which had been lower during the pandemic. However, unlike some other fashion labels, this did not have a significantly negative impact on the firm. This might be attributed to their inclusion of a broader range of fashion products in their orders.

Unfortunately, Oliver Bonas encountered challenges with inflation. The rising costs in the supply chain and energy prices had an impact on the company’s operations. Nevertheless, Oliver Bonas demonstrated resilience and managed to maintain positive overall performance.

The impressive sales and profit growth achieved by Oliver Bonas highlight the company’s ability to navigate challenging market conditions successfully. By focusing on mid-level pricing and offering a diverse range of products, Oliver Bonas has established itself as a reliable and prosperous player in the fashion industry.
