    McDonald faces tough task to look good in M&S fashion

    Jill McDonald picks up something of a poisoned chalice when she starts as boss of clothing at Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) on Monday, with little room to manoeuvre as she tackles one of the biggest jobs in British retailing on her first foray into fashion. McDonald's retail credentials are strong, but they were earned as CEO of bicycles to car parts company Halfords and she will have to work within a blueprint set out by her new boss as she looks to deliver the sustained sales and profit growth that has eluded M&S for a decade in competition with a burgeoning fast-fashion market. To compound matters, Rowe and predecessor Marc Bolland have already used sourcing directors Mark and Neal Lindsey to boost profit margins by changing the way M&S buys and makes clothes, taking away any easy gains for a new boss.

    M&S in talks to sell its 27 Hong Kong stores to franchise partner

    Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) (M&S) has announced it is in talks with its franchise partner in the Middle East over the sale of its store network in Hong Kong and Macau. The FTSE 100 retailer, which is trying to turn around its core UK business, said it was looking to expand the franchising arrangement it has with Dubai-based Al-Futtaim to include 27 stores in the Chinese territories. The move, M&S said, was a response to the conclusions of a strategic review of its overseas business last year which proposed it operate with fewer wholly-owned markets.

    Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) has opened talks to sell its wholly owned Hong Kong and Macau stores to franchise partner Al-Futtaim, the British company said on Wednesday. The food and clothing retailer said it has begun talks on the potential sale of the stores, which Al-Futtaim would continue to operate under the M&S franchise. The move follows a strategic review by M&S last November, in which the company laid out plans to shut more than 80 stores at home and abroad as well as seek joint ventures and franchise partnerships to operate in fewer wholly-owned markets.

    Dip in food sales knocks M&S, as clothing shows signs of recovery

    A surprise dip in underlying food sales knocked shares in Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) on Tuesday, though the British retailer said its recovery remained on track thanks to a second consecutive quarterly increase in full-price clothing sales. Chief Executive Steve Rowe, a 27-year company veteran who took over in April 2016, said his strategy of reducing prices for entry-level clothing ranges, cutting back on clearance sales and promotions, and improving fit, availability and service was working. In clothing and homeware, M&S's full-price sales - a key guide to profitability - rose 7 percent in the 13 weeks to July 1, its fiscal first quarter, reflecting 27 fewer promotions in the quarter versus a year earlier and no clearance sale.

    M&S says recovery on track as sales decline slows

    Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) 's boss Steve Rowe said his turnaround plan for the retailer was on track as its sales decline slowed in the first quarter and it scaled back discounting and end-of-season offers. Mr Rowe also said that while the overall figures showed a sales fall, full price purchases were up 7% with reduced discounting and no clearance sale. Earlier this year, M&S reported a 63% plunge in annual profits as costly restructuring took its toll and sales slumped in the year ending 1 April.

    M&S share price rises despite 63% fall in profits

    If investors have learned one thing about Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) in recent years, it is that the company is a past master at managing expectations. As for the headline pre-tax profit figure, of £176.4m, that was explained away by a tsunami of one-off factors, including changes to pay and pensions, store closures both at home and overseas, a bill for yet more past PPI mis-selling at M&S Bank and restructuring costs at the company's head office, where Steve Rowe, the chief executive, has been slimming down the ranks of top management. The bigger picture is that Mr Rowe and his colleagues appear to be delivering on the promises they set out a year ago, which was to wean the group's clothing and home division off promotions and discounts, while continuing to grow its well-regarded food business.

    M&S forecasts recovery in tough market after profit fall

    British retailer Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) said improving profit margins and steady market share showed its struggling clothing business was on the mend, despite a 10 percent drop in annual profit and falling sales in the latest quarter. "We've not had, nor do we expect to have, any help from the markets in which we operate," Chief Executive Steve Rowe said, noting that inflation was starting to outstrip the pace of pay rises. "Whilst it's still early days and there is much to do I'm pleased with our progress," he said, pointing to a stabilising market share in clothing, an increase in market share for full price clothes and the removal of excessive discounting.

    M&S boss Steve Rowe has clear plan to boost clothing and home sales

    On the face of it, the latest full-year results from Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) confirm the impression of a business whose food products are outstanding, but whose clothing and home products have somewhat lost their way. At the heart of his plan is what he claims is a much better understanding of M&S's customers and their shopping habits than any of his predecessors enjoyed. It means Mr Rowe now divides his customers into one of three groups: 22 million 'occasional' customers, 7 million 'core' customers and three million 'top' customers, including a 'super group' that shop with M&S 208 times a year for food and 86 times a year for clothing.

    M&S sales, profit fall after short-lived improvement

    Britain's Marks & Spencer (Frankfurt: 534418 - news) reported a 10 percent decline in annual profit and said clothing and homeware sales fell in its latest quarter, dampening the euphoria of the previous three months when it recorded a first increase in nearly two years. M&S, one of the best known names in British retail, made a pretax profit before one off items of 613.8 million pounds ($796 million) in the year to April 1. The outcome reflects lower clothing and homeware sales and higher costs.
