DSW lowers outlook
The Ohio-based company announced third quarter results. Despite the increase in revenue reported, the company lowered its outlook for the year
Roger Rawlins, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We continued to make progress on our strategic initiatives and the integration of our acquisitions. At the same time, we faced several meaningful headwinds during the third quarter that impacted our results and will likely continue for the upcoming quarters. The near-record warm weather during our largest and most profitable quarter affected every segment of our business (...) We took proactive actions to protect our topline and delivered positive comps in the third quarter. Our Camuto organization delivered their first positive operating income contribution in the quarter and the incredible Camuto designed and sourced exclusive brand product is being delivered to our warehouses currently and will be customer facing in just a few weeks. And I am excited to see Canada continue to strongly leverage the expertise and infrastructure from our US business as they delivered another stellar quarter."

"We are continuously seeking ways to increase our market share, all while reducing costs across our entire organization and mitigating tariffs. We continue to believe our ability to operate a fully integrated supply chain will yield significant benefit and enable us to better compete across all channels and creates a long runway for growth, and in turn, long-term value for our shareholders", Mr. Rawlins concluded.
