Chairman and CEO John D Idol said: “Overall, our performance in the third quarter was more challenging than anticipated. However, many aspects of our business performed well, in particular we were pleased with the continued growth in our own retail channel across all three of our luxury houses. This is a testament to the strength of our powerful iconic brands, as well as the success of our strategic initiatives.
“However, we were disappointed with the performance of our global wholesale business in the quarter which resulted in expense deleverage and a lower operating margin. We have begun taking measures to better align operating expenses with the change in revenue by channel. At the same time, we will continue to make strategic investments to drive long-term growth.”
