Management Comment: Strategic Transformation and Growth
Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, stated: “In 2012 we delivered exceptional top-line and bottom-line performance and made great strides in executing Delta Galil’s long-term strategies to transform the Company into a leading, diversified global competitor in branded and private label intimate apparel. We increased our branded business and our European footprint through the Schiesser acquisition, further penetrated the U.S. mass market channel, and expanded our socks category and U.S. kids business, through our recent acquisition of Little Miss Matched.
“Our outlook for 2013 calls for Delta Galil to approach $1 billion in sales, accompanied by further growth in profitability. We plan to get there through continued organic growth in areas such as in Delta USA, Socks business and Delta Israel retail operations. We have increased our guidance to 2013 from $55-$60 million EBIT to $57-$62 million.”
