British online fashion retailer ASOS has reported a 21% rise in sales in the four months to the end of June, but said trading in the latter three weeks.

ASOS said it anticipated trading volatility to continue in the near term, given the rapidly evolving Covid situation worldwide.

As a result, it expected its underlying growth rate for the balance of its 2020-21 year to be broadly in line with the prior year period.

ASOS expects its overall full year adjusted pretax profit to be in line with its expectations.

The group said total revenue was 1.29 billion pounds in the four months to June 30, up from 1.1 billion pounds in the same period last year, as its active customer base increased by 1.2 million to 26.1 million.
