Underlying profits were up 16% for 2012, with the business opening 21 new standalone branches in the UK last year, bringing the total number of UK stores to 52.
Overseas sales, which consist of mail-order and online, grew by 44% in 2012, with the US market seeing a particularly strong performance. The brand entered Russia and the Middle East last year and plans to enter the German market in 2014.
