Ted Baker’s profit before tax rose 5.4% to £7.4 million for the 28 weeks to August 9.
Group sales rose 8.2% to £71.6m with the retail division posting a 17.5% rise to £53.3m. However, wholesale sales fell 12.1% to £18.3m.
The group’s licence income was up 26.1% to £2.9m.
Chief executive Ray Kelvin said that the performance was good in a difficult trading environment.
“The board is, however, mindful of the uncertain economic environment and we remain understandably cautious about trading in the second half of the year,” he added.
“The group has performed well during the first half of the year and strength of the Ted Baker brand combined with our successful multi-channel distribution strategy and careful international expansion has enabled us to deliver good growth for the period in an unpredictable market.
He added that the initial response to autumn and winter ranges had been positive.
During the reporting period the group opened a second womenswear only store in South Molton Street in London, as well as Ted Baker stores in London’s Cheapside, Heathrow Terminal 5, Belfast and Cambridge.
Stores in Bristol and Liverpool also opened since the period end and a shop in Westfield London at White City will open later this month.
