Spreadshirt’s Record-Breaking 2012

Sales target exceeded as Spreadshirt cracks 65 million euros mark

London, 13th February 2013 – Despite a difficult economic global picture, Spreadshirt saw record-breaking sales of over 65m euros in 2012, up 42% on the previous year (45.8m euros). Sales increased by 30% across the company’s core European market (including the UK). A significant growth-driver was the North American market, which saw a 69% increase in sales, recorded as 24,4m euros. The UK market achieved a commendable 24% year-on-year growth in sales. Spreadshirt also partnered with Amazon in November 2012 where it now automatically launches top sellers.

Spreadshirt, the e-commerce platform for creating, selling and buying ideas & things that consumers love to wear, use and carry, closed out the year with impressive Q4 results; global revenue was up 30% over Q3 beating expectations by 20%.

Spreadshirt CEO, Philip Rooke, commented “We are excited that 2012 was a great year. We have exceeded our predicted revenues and have increased our profitability at the same time. Spreadshirt’s growth in the UK shows how our e-commerce platform, with its risk-free approach and top quality offering, is really resonating with both consumers and brands alike”. He predicts, “In 2013 our focus is mainly on the expansion of our product range, the further international expansion as well as the development of our platform and the integration with new partners – this will give us a further push. Further to that we will add 2 to 3 new countries each year for the next four years-further grabbing global market share and enhancing our international presence.”

Spreadshirt’s second US production facility, in Las Vegas, will meet consumer and corporate demand on the west coast of America, but also two other important regions for Spreadshirt; South America and Australia
