Levi's remains flat in Q2, international business thrives as US struggles
Levi’s on Monday reported its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 ended May 29, 2016.
Net revenues were flat for the quarter with a 4% decline in the Americas, an 8% increase in Europe and a 12% increase in Asia. Direct-to-consumer revenues grew in the Americas and wholesale revenues declined, and direct-to-consumer growth pushed the Europe revenue increase.
Net income grew 163% reflecting a decline in charges related to the company’s productivity initiative and debt extinguishment loss recorded in 2015, gross profit grew to $517 million from $500 million in the previous year and SG&A expenses increased to $459 million from $450 million. Adjusted EBIT remained flat in the quarter.
“In the second quarter, we offset the impact of a challenging U.S. wholesale environment with growth in our direct-to-consumer and international businesses,” said Chip Bergh, president and chief executive officer.
“Looking forward, as we execute our profitable growth strategies we will continue to focus on what we can control, and we remain committed to delivering our priorities and financial objectives for the full year.”
