Local fashion chain Bossini International (0592) yesterday said that its net loss for the ten months ended April 30 widened to HK$195 million as the Covid-19 outbreak affected operating conditions.

In the first four months, it lost over HK$100 million.
The operating conditions for the group were further aggravated in the second half of the financial year with the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, as Hong Kong and other core markets where the company operates put into place semi-lockdowns and retail activity came close to a complete halt, the company said in a statement.
The net loss was HK$139 million for the financial year 2018-2019 ended June 30, the annual report stated.
The company expects to announce its annual report for 2019-2020 ended June 30 on mid-September.
The share price of Bossini International rose 11.54 percent to HK$0.435 yesterday. The share price once surged to HK$0.64 on May 22 after the announcement of the acquisition by Dragon Leap Developments, a subsidiary of Viva China (8032), owned by Li Ning's family holdings, on May 15.
