Marks & Spencer response

...During March, FiBA (Marks & Spencer's Franchise licensee) temporarily closed all stores in Ukraine.

There has been no damage to the stores although one third party warehouse used by our Franchise partner was destroyed at night with no one on site.

M&S does not operate stores or have any employees in Russia. Our Turkish Franchise licensee holds the rights to trade under the M&S banner in Ukraine and Russia. We suspended deliveries to Russia and have no plans to reinstate them. We are actively discussing the future of the business with our ranchise licensee.

Our Franchise licensee has identified a small number of operational and process dependencies between their Russian and Ukraine business.
