Warpaint, the UK-based colour cosmetics specialist, announced its full-year results for 2018. Revenue increased by 49.2% to £48.5m (FY’17: £32.5m); however, on a like-for-like basis, revenue was down 3.2% if we assume a full-year contribution from Retra in 2017. A weak UK retail market affected sales. Internationally, though, revenue increased by 8% on a like-for-like basis; growth was particularly strong in the US and Europe. Gross margin was down by 3.3% to 35.5% for FY’18 (FY’17: 38.8%) due to product mix sold across the group during the year. Cash generation remains healthy with free cashflow of ca.£3.9m in FY’18. Warpaint announced a full-year dividend of 4.4p, up 10% on FY’17.
