Primark profits may have been trimmed recently as a result of the price-cutting of rivals, but the company’s business is still active and energetic.

A fierce price war between fashion retails has begun to catch up to Primark, known as an arch-discounter, which has finally begun to admit that profits were beginning to shrink.

Primark has been the leader in the market for so-called “cheap chic,” yet it has been heavily hit by long-term price cutting by its rivals. Parent company Associated British Food’s full-year trading update indicated an expectation of slightly weaker profitability from Primark. Even so, the company is continuing its aggressive expansion. Sales have grown by 13%, of which 10% is credited to new stores. Primark is set to open new locations at Westfild Stratford City, Edinburgh, and a second location in London, on Oxford Street. They also look to open a Primark online, but more on that on http://primarkonlineshoppers.com

By year’s end ABF claims there will be 223 Primark locations, for a total of 7.2 million square feet of retail space.

The shrinking of profit margins at Primark was expected. Last year the company made a decision, according to finance director John Bason, to absorb rising cotton prices rather than pass on the increase to consumers. This was done in order to stay competitive with cost-cutting rival stores. Now that cotton prices have significantly fallen once again, Primark executives expect those cheaper input costs to be reflected in next year’s spring/summer collection.

ABF is doing fine even with the soft period for Primark; its sugar division is raking in profits well ahead of last year thanks to high prices. Worldwide gains also helped offset a damaged U.K. sugar crop last year.

ABF’s grocery brands have also performed well. A statement released by the Primark parent touted the strong sales growth of its Twinings Ovaltine brand thanks to growing sales of tea in the U.S. and U.K., and growth in the sale of Ovaltine in Thailand and other developing markets. Additionally, tea product quality and packaging were improved, the statement says. Allied Bakeries also found success in the U.K., with strong sales for its Kingsmill Bakery snacks and rolls.

Primark’s parent company saw margins fall at its ingredients business, according to the ABF statement. This is chalked up to the competitive European yeast market, which is suffering from an inability to recover from increases in raw material costs.

RBS analyst Julian Hardwick calls the Primark figures no surprise given the current retail climate, and the ongoing backdrop in consumer spending. Analysts at Credit Suisse added that the outlook for ABF’s sugar business is particularly good, with sugar shaping up for a very strong 2012.

Despite its recent weak period, Primark looks poised to remain a force in the marketplace. With its commitment to providing customers with a quality product at great value for their money, and with its position secure beneath the umbrella of the thriving Associated British Foods company, Primark stands ready to beat back the competition and dominate the cheap chic market in the weeks, months, and years to come.
