Burberry offered upbeat advice for the upcoming year by looking ahead.

In the medium run, Burberry anticipates revenues of £4 billion at FY22 CER.

The CEO, Jonathan Akeroyd, expressed his satisfaction with the year’s accomplishments. Our key leather goods and outerwear categories have made outstanding progress, and our financial performance has been robust. Revenue increased in the fourth quarter as growth picked up in Mainland China.

After naming Daniel Lee as our new chief creative officer, we refocused our brand approach and realised his fresh creative vision through a campaign and well-received runway show. In order to further our goal, we have simultaneously reorganised our supply chain, merchandising, and digital departments under new executives. Although the external climate is still unpredictable, I am optimistic that we can meet our short- and medium-term goals as we work to actualize Burberry’s promise as the contemporary British luxury brand.
