Ferragamo posts revenue growth
The luxury group reported a revenue increase of 23.2%, reaching 289 million euros, in the first quarter of 2022. Growth in Asia-Pacific slowed down due to COVID-19 outbreaks in China
"I'm excited to be part of this iconic brand, built on an exceptional heritage of creativity, craftsmanship and human values. In spite of the enduring pandemic and the conflict in Ukraine, in this first quarter we delivered good growth of revenues and operational margin. Notwithstanding the rising geopolitical and economic volatility, we expect to increase our revenues for the current year, and today we are laying out the drivers to accelerate growth and realize the potential of Ferragamo", commented Marco Gobbetti, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of Salvatore Ferragamo.

As of the 31st of March, Ferragamo’s revenue totalled 289 million euros, reflecting a rise of 23.2% (of 20.6% at constant exchange rates), on a comparable basis to revenue of 235 million euros reported in the first quarter of 2021.
