An investment year for Capri
The UK-based group has announced first quarter results with total revenue growing by 11.9%. The management of the Capri Holdings reaffirmed this will be the year to invest heavily in the business
John D. Idol, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We are pleased with our first quarter results, which reflect 12% revenue growth as well as better than expected operating margin and earnings per share. These results continue to position our company to execute against our strategic initiatives. Based on our first quarter performance, we are reaffirming our earnings per share guidance for fiscal 2020, which includes the impact of the strengthening US dollar and additional tariffs on imports from China (...) Fiscal 2020 will be an investment year for Capri Holdings. We are investing in Versace and Jimmy Choo to position these preeminent luxury houses for long term revenue growth and margin expansion. We are also executing on our strategic initiatives at Michael Kors to return the brand to growth. With the power of Versace and Jimmy Choo, and the strength of Michael Kors, we remain confident that our three iconic, founder-led fashion brands position Capri Holdings to grow revenue to 8 billion US dollars over time and deliver multiple years of earnings growth."
