Growth in Global Markets, Continued Expansion
Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, stated: “We have started 2012 on a strong footing, delivering a solid performance in the first quarter. Our sales increase primarily reflected our growth in North America, where we have gained share in the higher end of the market, and in Israel, where our retail business including the Delta Kids chain continues to expand.

“Overall, we have continued to focus on innovation, inspired by our 'body-before-fabric' philosophy, with the goal of creating an expanding portfolio of products that are differentiated in the marketplace and have a strong consumer appeal.”

“Delta Galil continues to successfully pursue strategies to grow our branded business, geographic presence and product breadth. In this regard, we recently announced an agreement to acquire Schiesser AG, the leading underwear manufacturer and marketer in Germany, in a deal that is expected to close in July 2012.

“The Schiesser transaction will significantly increase our sales of branded products, add depth in Europe's strongest market, and increase the Men's component of our business – while being solidly accretive to earnings this year.”
