Crocs raises full year outlook
US-based Crocs posted a 19.8% revenue growth in the third quarter. The company now expects 2019 revenues to grow 11% to 12% and reach record levels
Andrew Rees, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We delivered an excellent quarter highlighted by 20% top-line growth and record third quarter revenues of 313 million US dollars. Our Americas business delivered exceptional growth, driven in part by another highly successful back to school season. Based on the strength of our recent performance and start to the fourth quarter, we are raising our full year guidance to 11% to 12% revenue growth over 2018, which would result in record annual sales for our company. The Crocs brand momentum continues to gain pace, and for 2020, we anticipate revenue growth over 2019 of 12% to 14%”.

Third Quarter Results

Croc's revenue totalled 312.8 million US dollars, growing by 19.8% over the third quarter of 2018, or 21.0% on a constant currency basis.
