SuperGroup, the British company behind the Superdry fashion brand, said it had signed a joint venture deal to enter the Chinese market, as it posted a small rise in annual profit.

The firm, whose trademark jackets, hooded tops and jogging bottoms are popular with teenagers and twentysomethings, said on Thursday it had struck a 10-year deal with Chinese retailer Trendy International Group, which will manage day-to-day operations while SuperGroup focuses on brands and marketing.

The firm, which has over 135 European stores and sells goods globally via concessions and online, said trading in its new fiscal year had started well, albeit against a weak comparative period, with like-for-like retail sales up 20.3 percent in the first 10 weeks.
