Coach powers Tapestry performance in the quarter
Tapestry reported a 1% increase in net sales for the second quarter, much driven by Coach's 2% increase in net sales. Coronavirus will impact the performance for the full year, the company now anticipates
Jide Zeitlin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc., commented: “We are pleased with our overall holiday results, which outperformed plan driven by continued momentum at Coach and a sequential improvement at Kate Spade. Coach delivered its ninth consecutive quarter of positive comparable store sales growth. North America led the global comp, with notable strength online, and higher average unit retail driving gross margin expansion. In aggregate our international business was even with the prior year with strong comp growth in Other Asia, Europe and Mainland China, offsetting continued weakness in Hong Kong SAR and a slight decline in Japan, reflecting the impact of the consumption tax increase".

Mr. Zeitlin concluded: “ (We found that) there is an opportunity to accelerate long-term growth in all three of our brands. To realize this potential, we need to become more responsive to changing consumer demands. This requires integrating data analytics and consumer insights in all aspects of the business, from design to product development to planning and allocation to marketing. We bring a sense of urgency to this work and are dedicating resources to formulate and implement our strategy to drive value and shareholder returns. We will share the key components of this plan at an analyst and investor day this summer.”
