Adjusted EBIT for the financial year remained in the low-single digits.
Nick Devlin, Naked Wines CEO, said, "Our results reflect the hard work and high-quality execution of our teams around the globe, and I am especially pleased to see the improvements to our customer experience and product range reflected in sustained retention rates above our expectations."

Naked Wines will announce full-year results for the 52 weeks ended 28 March 2022 in June.
