HONG KONG, CHINA – Media
OutReach
 – 31 March 2020 – Trinity Limited (“Trinity” or
the “Group”; stock code: 891), a leading retailer and owner of premium menswear
brands in Greater China and Europe, as well as licensing its wholly-owned
brands globally, has announced its annual results for the year ended 31
December 2019 (“FY2019”), the first full year results since Ruyi Group became its controlling
shareholder.
Efforts in optimizing its business, tapping new business segments and expanding
sales channels were made in conjunction with its parent company, Ruyi Group,
which resulted in operational synergies. Consequently, significant improvement
in business performance was achieved, including core operating profit of
HK$161.3 million and profit attributable to shareholders of HK$50.4 million. 

 

Trinity’s total revenue was HK$1,962.2 million,
representing an increase of 13.9% year-on-year. This was attributed to the
Group’s extra efforts in developing new business and sales channels to
diversify business risks, while leveraging the support and network of Ruyi Group
and its subsidiaries.

Gross profit reached HK$1,308.1 million from HK$1,195.3
million in 2018, which was mainly due to new distribution partners that engaged
in the wholesaling of clothing from the Group’s major brands to corporate
customers in Mainland China and other countries. Core operating profit amounted
to HK$161.3 million, a significant improvement from a core operating loss of HK$248.1
million in 2018.

 

Mr Yafu QIU,
Chairman of Trinity Limited
, said, “Trinity showed signs of profitability
in the final quarter of 2018, which it then was able to sustain through further
reform and transformation efforts, central of which was the rightsizing of
various operations. We will continue to raise our competitiveness and enhance
our online and wholesale presence, seeing our premium self-owned brands Cerruti
1881, Gieves & Hawkes, and Kent & Curwen as well as our licensed brand
D’URBAN to exercise greater influence in their respective country of origin and
in key fashion capitals of the world.”

During the year, Trinity introduced new store
concept for Kent & Curwen, all with a decidedly younger edge. In addition,
to deliver the right products, the Group’s design team will introduce more
youthful collections, extending to unisex clothing that are in tune with the
times. The team will also continue to create accessories that are part and
parcel of today’s aesthetic.

Beyond brick-and-mortar stores, Trinity’s e-commerce
team is continuously and conscientiously enhancing its presence online, as well
as relevant social media channels, so as to maximise the Group’s impact on a
global scale. Under the enormous market opportunities arising from the global
online fashion market, the Group is concurrently reinforcing ties with
established online retail platforms, especially those with links with Ruyi
Group.

The encouraging performance of wholesale
business has played a pivotal role during the year, not only it has lifted the
Group’s financial performance, it has helped the Group to raise brand profile
as well as to offset declines in the retail segment in the Hong Kong market due
to local social incidents in second half of FY2019. Moving forward, Trinity will
dedicate greater effort towards the prestige wholesale segment, while
leveraging Ruyi Group’s resources in the formal wear market.

“Though 2020 looks challenging due to various
macroeconomic factors, I believe with our highly experienced management team at
the helm, clear business direction, optimised global workforce and unstinting
ties with key stakeholders, Trinity will continue to grow from strength to strength.”
Chairman QIU concluded.
