Crocs with another period of record revenue
The US-based brand of casual footwear announced record third quarter revenue of 625.9 million US dollars. Revenue growth was strong in all regions, despite supply chain disruptions
"Our third quarter was exceptional, underscored by 73% revenue growth over 2020 and industry-leading operating margin of 32%. Globally, our teams are managing through the supply chain disruptions to mitigate the impact on our business. Despite the temporary disruptions, we expect 2022 revenues to grow over 20% from 2021 fuelled by the strength of our brand and consumer demand globally”, commented Andrew Rees, Chief Executive Officer. 

The company has noted that its third quarter performance “was impacted by Vietnamese factory closures and widespread disruption in the global supply chain”. Crocs decided, then, to “shift production, improve factory throughput, leverage air freight, and strategically allocate units”, remaining confident in its “ability to deliver upon our short- and long-term goals”.
