Calculations are based on Yoox Group’s Q1 and year-to-date earnings reports.

E-commerce revenue growth for the first six months of 2011 was attributed to “both the outstanding performance of TheCorner.com, which continues to record better results than forecast, and the sustained growth of Yoox.com,” the company says. “It should be noted that the positive performance of Yoox.com, which in the first quarter benefited from increased product availability compared with the 2010-2011 autumn/winter season, continues in line with expectations in the second quarter of 2011.”
TheCorner.com sells cutting-edge fashions and accessories for men and women.
