JD Sports and ASOS warehouses risk becoming like "dark satanic mills" after figures showed ambulance call-outs to their sites have risen steeply. JD Sports saw 40 call-outs to its Rochdale site last year, while ASOS's unit in Barnsley was visited 45 times - a rate of almost one every week. In the past three years, ambulances have been dispatched to JD Sports's Greater Manchester premises 117 times, and 148 times to the ASOS warehouse in South Yorkshire.

JD Sports has defied high street gloom, reporting a 15% rise in pre-tax profit for the year. Executive chairman Peter Cowgill said that the retailer of sports, fashion and outdoor brands had delivered a "record result" thanks to its "relentless focus" on providing a "compelling differentiated proposition to the consumer". Pre-tax profit was £339.9m in the year ending 2 February, compared with £294.5m the previous year.
The FTSE 100 added 0.4 percent after hitting its highest since Oct. 4 as a dip in pound boosted blue-chip exporter stocks. The more domestically-focused midcap index built on last week's momentum, when the European Union agreed a second delay to Brexit, and clung to its six-month high with a 0.6 percent rise. Both followed gains in Asia after data showed that new home prices in China grew slightly faster in March after a slow-down the previous month, kindling hopes that Beijing's stimulus measures were having an impact.
The group's expansion over the past year, with the purchase of U.S.-based Finish Line and smaller rival Footasylum, also bolstered annual profits, sending JD shares to a record high. Executive Chairman Peter Cowgill said Britain's biggest sportswear retailer had targeted millennials and Generation Z consumers - those born between the mid-1990s and the mid-2000s - who had driven the trend for athleisure, whereby gym clothes have become acceptable at work, school and on social occasions. "It (athleisure) is becoming far more seamless between sport and leisure, it is a cultural impact," Cowgill told Reuters in a phone interview after the company said headline pretax profit rose 15.5 percent to £355.2 million for its financial year ended Feb. 3.

The fashion brand created by ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has been sold to JD Sports, in a move that will see almost 100 staff lose their jobs. Sky News reported last month how the business - set up in 2009 - had become a victim of tough trading for the high street and the collapse of House of Fraser, forcing preparations (before its eventual collapse last week) to be sold as insolvent. Administrators said JD Sports had picked up the brand, online and wholesale business.

The FTSE 100 added 1 percent - its biggest one-day rise since early February - to mark a sixth straight session of gains while midcaps ended roughly flat as a weaker pound weighed. Parliamentary speaker John Bercow said any proposal British Prime Minister Theresa May puts to lawmakers must be substantially different to the ones previously rejected by them. Bercow's comments aggravated Brexit jitters as May has just a few days to push her divorce deal through if she wants to go to an EU summit on Thursday with something to offer them in return for more time.
Footasylum shares jumped 74 percent on Monday, trading slightly below JD's all-cash offer price of 82.5 pence per share. The company's initial public offering was priced at 164 pence in November 2017. The agreement comes a month after JD Sports raised its stake in the retailer to 18 percent.
JD Sports has agreed to buy Footasylum in a £90m deal after its smaller rival was battered by the tough conditions on the high street. The deal comes weeks after Footasylum warned of a squeeze on profits as it slashed prices in order to buoy up sales amid "some of the most difficult trading conditions seen in recent years". JD Sports said that once the deal was complete it would carry out a strategic review of the business.
London's FTSE 100 extended its rally from last week with miners doing most of the heavy-lifting buoyed by higher copper prices as investors awaited U.S. central bank's policy meeting, while Footasylum surged after JD Sports' buyout deal. The FTSE 100 was up 0.5 percent by 0828 GMT, its sixth straight session in the positive territory after hopes that a potentially disruptive no-deal Brexit would be averted supported it last week.
Just Eat has muscled its way back into London's benchmark FTSE 100 after getting booted from the index last year.
The Investment Association said it had written to 69 British companies which it said have no women on their boards or just one asking them for explanations following the government-backed Hampton-Alexander Review which set a target of ensuring women make up at least a third of leadership teams by 2020. "It is totally unacceptable that one in five of the UK’s biggest companies are falling so far short ... Companies must do more than take the tokenistic step of appointing just one woman to their board and consider that job done," the association's Chief Executive Chris Cummings said in a statement on Friday. Philip Hampton, Chair of the Hampton-Alexander Review, said while most companies had made good progress, "a surprising number" had just one woman and needed to do more.
