Analysts expect Ted Baker to downgrade full-year guidance

The company’s lack lustre results will likely see it revise its full-year profit expectations from the £50 million - £60 million it previously gave at the start of 2019.

Ted Baker blamed its poor performance on unseasonably warm weather and challenging market conditions as well as ‘unprecedented and sustained levels of promotional activity across the sector globally’.

Ted Baker sees sales slide

The fashion retailer saw sales decline by 2.5% to £308.8 million in its first six months of trading. The company’s sales were significantly impacted by the demise key UK trading partners like Debenhams and House of Fraser, with both department stores falling into administration earlier this year.

However, analysts blamed Ted Baker’s comparatively higher prices in a highly competitive retail market for its disappointing performance.

‘Our primary concern is that the Ted brand is losing relevance in its target market and the price point is turning customers off,’ John Stevenson, equity research analyst at Peel Hunt told The Guardian.

‘Certainly, market conditions are tough, but others are performing much better,’ he added.
