Strong third quarter for Caleres
The US-based footwear group posted record quarterly consolidated net sales of 798.3 million US dollars in the third quarter of 2022, driven by the performance of the Brand Portfolio Segment
"Caleres executed another strong operational and financial performance in the third quarter and closed the first nine months of the year with record earnings. These results underscore the strength and versatility of our brands, highlight our compelling product and product creation power, and demonstrate the portfolio's significantly enhanced agility and resilience during periods of macroeconomic uncertainty. We are particularly pleased that our Brand Portfolio segment achieved near-record third quarter earnings and that Famous Footwear delivered a strong operating margin of 12.3%", commented Diane Sullivan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
