Naked Wines faces "crucial year" of adjustment to post-pandemic life

Naked Wines PLC

Naked Wines PLC (AIM:WINE, OTCQX:NWINF) chief financial officer James Crawford speaks to Thomas Warner from Proactive following the release of the company's full year results for the 53 weeks to 3 April 2023. Crawford gives his take on the highlights from the results, which included a 1% increase in total sales to £354mln, adjusted profit of £17.4 million which exceeded initial guidance owing in part to cuts to marketing expenses. He says inventory levels aligned with expectations at £166 million, with a net cash position exceeding £10 million.
