VF Corp announces full year results
The US-based apparel and footwear group has reported revenue growth of 28% over fiscal 2022, reaching 11.8 billion US dollars, as compared to fiscal 2021
"I am pleased with the progress we have made advancing our strategic priorities while successfully navigating another eventful year. We largely delivered on the commitments we made at the outset of Fiscal 2022 by achieving broad-based growth across our family of brands. A portion of our active segment did not achieve its potential. We understand the issues, we have the right people in place and we know we will do better (…) We will continue to thoughtfully invest in our brands and value-enhancing strategic growth opportunities and I am confident VF has a long runway for sustained profitable and broad-based growth ahead", commented Steve Rendle, Chairman, President and CEO of VF.
