Key Factors to Note

G-III Apparel’s quarterly performance is most likely to have been driven by gains from digital business and brand strength. Management is focused on driving growth across the digital landscape via investments in internal talent, e-commerce sites and improved logistics capabilities. In fact, the company is witnessing robust results on the websites for DKNY and Karl Lagerfeld Paris.

The company is also steadily gaining from product lines resonating well with consumer demand. Sales for the broader lifestyle apparel including sportswear, wear-to-work attire and dresses have been impressive so far. Management is quite optimistic about the company’s five global power brands including DKNY, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Karl Lagerfeld Paris. Its overall business in North America is encouraging. The company continues to take measures to optimize costs. Cumulatively, these factors are likely to have contributed to the to-be-reported results.

On its last earnings call on Jun 7, management had projected net sales of about $460 million for second-quarter fiscal 2022. It had envisioned earnings per share of 3-13 cents.
