But when the costs of The Good Guys acquisition (incurred in the previous half-year period) are included, its statutory profit increased by 37.4 per cent.

The figures incorporate financial performances of the companies three main business units, including JB Hi-Fi Australia, JB Hi-Fi New Zealand and The Good Guys.

Total sales in New Zealand dropped 0.4 per cent to $115.5 million ($NZ124.6 million).

JB Hi-Fi added that sales from its appliances chain, The Good Guys, which it bought in 2016, grew just 1.8 percent on a comparable store basis in the six-month period.

The discount retailer signalled the shift for the New Zealand division past year, taking an A$15.8 million impairment charge on the business after reviewing the unit and deciding on a way to revive sales and fatten margins.

It now has a total of 311 retail stores across Australia and New Zealand.

The company now expects its full-year profit to be in the $235-$240 million range - beating its $172 million result last year.
