Analysis of revenues
Revenues for the quarter followed contrasting trends in the two main distribution channels. Sales through Directly Operated Stores (462 DOS at April 30, 2013) amounted to Euro 678.7 million and increased by 19.1% (+20.8% at constant exchange rates); they were also sustained by solid Same Store Sales Growth of +8%. Meanwhile, sales in the wholesale channel fell by 9.4%, in line with expectations and as a result of the selective approach to independent customers.
The Asia Pacific market grew by 24.8% (+23.1% at constant exchange rates) thanks to the strong contribution of Directly Operated Stores in Greater China.
A similar trend was seen in the Americas with +23% growth at constant exchange rates. In the Americas, growth in the retail channel was accompanied by a healthy increase in the wholesale channel, confirming the strength of the US market.
The European market remained broadly unchanged (+1.3% growth at constant exchange rates) with contrasting dynamics in each of the two main distribution channels: sales through the retail network, primarily boosted by the healthy flow of travelers, continued to enjoy double figure growth while the wholesale channel recorded a significant drop in revenues.
The Japanese market recovered well with revenue growth of 12.2% at constant exchange rates, though the weakening of the Yen resulted in a 1.8% drop in revenues in Euro.
