Activewear sales lead strong Q3 2015 for Delta Galil
Delta Galil on Wednesday announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2015. Sales and net income increased for the global manufacturing and marketing company.
The company reported a sales increase of $284.6 million in Q3 2015 from $267.2 million for the previous year’s third quarter. EBITDA before one-time items increased 4% to $27.1 million from $26.1 million, and net income before one-time items attributed to shareholders increased 2% to $14.1 million from $13.9 million.
Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, stated: “The 2015 third quarter was consistent with our expectations. Sales in the third quarter and the first nine months of 2015 increased at a double-digit rate, led by an increase in activewear products. Growth in sales, in terms of constant currency, was reflected in all of our geographic markets.”
Sales for the first nine months of 2015 increased 5% to $792.9 million from $754.5 million in the previous year's comparable period. The sales growth is attributed to company’s increasing diverse geographic base and customer mix.
“We have continued to invest in long-term growth initiatives,” Mr. Dabah continued. “Earlier this year, we acquired the PJ Salvage brand, providing an opportunity to expand our presence in sleepwear and loungewear, attract a millennial customer base, and strengthen our position in the upper market. We are also excited about our license agreement with Columbia for men’s and ladies’ underwear, launching in 2016; our new seamless R&D center at Nike HQ in Oregon; and a new factory in Vietnam set to open in the 2016 first half.”
Delta Galil expects its full year sales to be between a record $1,080 million to $1,095 million, which includes the effects of the acquisition of PJ Salvage from July 2015.
