The H&M group’s sales development in the first quarter and early March 2021

The H&M group´s year-on-year sales devolpment in local currencies during the pandemic
In the first quarter 2021, i.e. in the period 1 December 2020 to 28 February 2021, the H&M group’s net sales decreased by 21 percent in local currencies compared with 1 December 2019 to 29 February 2020. Converted to SEK the group’s net sales amounted to SEK 40,060* m (54,948).

Sales development was significantly affected by the Covid-19 situation, with extensive restrictions and at most over 1,800 stores temporarily closed. Since the beginning of February, a number of markets have gradually allowed stores to reopen and at the end of the quarter around 1,300 stores remained temporarily closed. Online sales have continued to develop very well.

Since Germany, the H&M group’s largest market, and other countries have begun allowing certain stores to reopen, the number of temporarily closed stores in the group amounted to around 900 on 13 March. Sales in the period 1–13 March this year increased by 10 percent in local currencies compared with the same period in 2020.

* The amount is provisional and may deviate slightly from the three-month report, covering the period 1 December 2020 – 28 February 2021, that will be published on 31 March 2021.
