G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. ( GIII Quick Quote GIII - Free Report) is likely to post top and bottom-line increases from the respective year-ago quarter’s reported figures when it reports third-quarter fiscal 2024 results. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for quarterly revenues is pegged at $1,131 million, indicating a 4.9% rise from the year-ago fiscal quarter’s tally. The consensus mark for earnings in the fiscal third quarter is currently $2.08 per share, which shows an increase of 54.1% from the year-ago fiscal quarter. The consensus estimate has been stable in the past 30 days. G-III Apparel’s performance in the trailing four quarters reflects an average earnings surprise of 526.6%. Key Factors to Note
G-III Apparel’s quarterly performance is likely to reflect gains from initiatives such as building its own brands, acquiring new businesses and enhancing its private-label business. Management has been focused on enhancing digital growth via investments in e-commerce sites and logistics capabilities. GIII is quite optimistic about its global power brands, including DKNY, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Karl Lagerfeld Paris. These tailwinds are likely to have boosted the company’s performance during the quarter under discussion.
On its last earnings call, management had projected net sales to be $1.13 billion for the fiscal third quarter. The company had expected improved operating margins for the third quarter. It anticipated adjusted net income to be between $96 million and $101 million, or between $2.03 per share and $2.13 per share for the quarter under review. Our model suggests that sales are likely to jump 4.8% in the Wholesale unit and 2.7% in the Retail division in the quarter under review. However, a tough operating landscape, including inflationary pressures on consumers and increased costs in areas like inventory, are likely to have acted as deterrents. This, coupled with any deleverage in SG&A expenses, are expected to have hurt G-III Apparel’s results in the to-be-reported fiscal quarter. We expect SG&A costs to reflect a year-over-year increase of 7.7% in the fiscal third quarter. What the Zacks Model Unveils
