For the year to March 29 2008 the group made an underlying pretax profit of £38.6m on group sales up 3.6 per cent to £703.6m.

"Although there is some caution about the UK consumer environment, we are well placed as we enter the new financial year," said chief executive Ben Gordon.

"Our prospects for growth are driven by further benefits from the acquisition of the Early Learning Centre, international expansion opportunities, strong momentum in our Direct business and the reshaping of the combined UK property portfolio."
