Levi Strauss posts flat Q4 FY'14 revenues

Levi Strauss & Co. announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended November 24, 2013.  
 
Fourth-quarter revenues were flat to prior year on a reported basis, and excluding the impact of currency, fourth-quarter net revenues increased slightly. Due to the timing of the company’s fiscal year-end, the Black Friday sales week occurred after the fourth quarter closed. 
 
Fourth-quarter net income declined due to a slightly lower gross margin, higher seasonal advertising spend and a 2012 tax benefit. 
 
Full-year net revenues increased two percent on a reported and constant currency basis due to continued growth in the Americas region and the strength of the Levi’s Men’s business. Despite the lower net income in the fourth quarter, full-year net income increased 59 percent reflecting gross margin improvement. 
 
"Overall, we are pleased with the progress we made in 2013. We grew the top- and bottom-line, generated significant cash from operations and further strengthened the balance sheet by reducing our debt," said Chip Bergh, President and Chief Executive Officer. 
 
"These results were despite a challenging fourth quarter, in part due to the calendar shift; but also soft fourth-quarter environment and clearly some challenges in certain key international markets and in our U.S. women's business. 
 
“In 2014 we will continue to focus on growing the business over the long term by driving our profitable core business, addressing key opportunities to build a more balanced portfolio, and improving our retail operations, while at the same time reducing our controllable costs."
