Second quarter net sales exceeded our expectations setting another record quarter, and making the first half of 2017 a new record with sales surpassing 2 billion US dollars”, commented David Weinberg, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, adding: “The growth came across our three distribution channels—with double-digit increases in our company-owned global Skechers retail business, and each of our international distributor, subsidiary and joint venture businesses, as well as a mid-single-digit increase in our domestic wholesale business. Further, in the second quarter of 2017 in our domestic wholesale business, we shipped 11.4% more pairs while our average price per pair decreased 4.5%”.

Quarterly net sales increased by 16.9% totaling 1.026 billion US dollars compared to the second quarter in 2016. The growth was the result of a 6.4% increase in Skechers domestic wholesale business, an 18.6% increase in the company’s international wholesale business, and a 28.0% increase in its company-owned global retail business, which included comparable same store sales increases of 7.1%.

Based on these key indicators, Skechers believes it will achieve net sales in the third quarter in the range of 1.050 billion US dollars to 1.075 billion US dollars, which would represent a third quarter sales record, and earnings per share of 0.42 US dollars to 0.47 US dollars .
