"In recent years our talented teams have worked tirelessly to develop a focused business model with the requisite skills, innovation and investment to outperform in this category. The results speak for themselves through Jimmy Choo's strong continued top line growth, progressive margins and cash generation. Jimmy Choo is a clear success story with strong momentum and I am confident that our future as a public company can only extend our reputation and position in this attractive sector."
