Michael Kors with disappointing results
The New York-based luxury lifestyle brand announced results for the second quarter, ended on the 1st of October, strongly marked by a drop in revenue and net income, despite a very dynamic expansion of its retail stores
John D. Idol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our second quarter revenue and earnings results were above our expectations, as we continued to deliver innovative luxury fashion product and further expand our footprint worldwide”. Despite the new lines being delivered and the expansion of the brand’s online presence, Idol underlined that: “...results continued to be impacted by the declines in mall traffic and tourism in certain major cities, as well as our strategic decision to reduce sell-in of inventory to the US wholesale channel. Despite these near term challenges, we remain confident in our ability to drive long term growth and increase shareholder value".
