G-III Apparel Group Ltd. announced operating results for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 that ended October 31, 2011.

The Company reported that, for the three months ended October 31, 2011, net sales increased to $510.0 million from $450.0 million in the third quarter last year.

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 grew to $43.6 million from $42.7 million in the prior year's quarter. Net income per diluted share of $2.16 for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was the same as in the year-ago quarter.

Morris Goldfarb, G-III's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We achieved our sales objectives for the quarter, but found it necessary to utilize promotional strategies given the continued challenging market and weather conditions. In addition, we experienced higher product costs than last year. Our lower gross margin percentage in the third quarter reflected our higher costs and the promotional environment. We expect these trends to continue to impact us in the fourth quarter.”

Mr. Goldfarb concluded, “We continue to be excited about a variety of growth initiatives that are expected to positively impact us next year, including: the expansion of our Calvin Klein business, the further development of our handbag and luggage platform, the addition of Kensie sportswear, the ongoing development of our Andrew Marc brand, the increase in the product categories we will be manufacturing for the Jessica Simpson and Vince Camuto brands, and the expanded license with the NFL that takes effect in April 2012.”

Outlook
The Company revised its prior guidance for the full fiscal year ending January 31, 2012. The Company continues to forecast net sales of approximately $1.25 billion and is now forecasting net income of between $50.8 million and $52 .8 million, or between $2.50 and $2.60 per diluted share, compared to its previous guidance of net income of between $62.5 million and $64.5 million, or between $3.05 and $3.15 per diluted share.

The Company is now projecting EBITDA for fiscal 2012 of approximately $96.0 million to $99.0 million compared to its previous guidance of EBITDA of approximately $117 million to $121 million. EBITDA should be evaluated in light of the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with U.S.

G-III is a leading manufacturer and distributor of outerwear, dresses, sportswear and women's suits, as well as handbags and luggage, under licensed brands, our own brands and private label brands.
