(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). Delta Galil third quarter sales rose 6% while net income dropped 2%. For the first nine months of 2015, sales were up 5% but income was down 4%.
In announcing its results, the company explained that currency exchange rates in the places in which it operates, including the U.S., Europe and Israel, affected its results. Delta “reported sales of $284.6 million for the third quarter of 2015, up from $267.2 million for the same quarter last year, an increase of 6% after the effect of currency translation, 5% organic growth, and a 12% increase in original currency representing 10% organic growth. Sales in the first nine months of 2015 were $792.9 million, an increase of 5% from $754.5 million in the same period of 2014, equal to 5% organic growth and 11% in constant currency. Sales growth over the past nine months benefited from Delta Galil’s focus on increasing the diversity of its geographic base and customer mix.”
In addition, Delta “reiterated financial guidance for 2015: full-year sales are expected to be a record $1,080 million-$1,095 million (including the effect of the PJ Salvage acquisition), with organic sales growth of 7%-9% in constant currency.”
Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, assessed the third quarter noting it “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.”
“Looking at the key drivers of our profitable growth this quarter, we saw an increase in sales in Delta USA and in the Global Upper Market segments, while both our Schiesser business in Europe and Delta Israel increased sales in original currency. A rising proportion of our sales now comes from branded products, which has been another of our major strategic initiatives.”
Acknowledging the benefit from the PJ Salvage acquisition, Dabah added, “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.”
