May '14
Delta Galil Industries, Ltd., the global manufacturer and marketer of branded and private label apparel products for men, women and children, reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.
 
The Company reported sales of $238.1 million for the first quarter of 2014, up from $227.3 million for the same quarter last year, an increase of 5%.
 
Operating income was $14.8 million for first quarter 2014, up 28% from $11.6 million in the same quarter of 2013.
 
A key contributor to the higher operating income was an expanding gross profit margin, which rose to 30.4% in the 2014 first quarter from 28.4% a year ago. This was partly offset by higher selling and marketing expenses as Delta Galil invested in the growth of its business.
 
Net income attributable to shareholders was $8.7 million in the 2014 first quarter, compared to $6.6 million in the same quarter of 2013, a 32% increase. Diluted earnings per share attributed to shareholders were $0.34 for the 2014 first quarter, up from $0.26 for the 2013 first quarter.
