Morris Goldfarb, G-III's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We continue to be pleased with the growth and health of our core businesses and with the handbag and luggage opportunities we have for the upcoming Fall season.”

Mr. Goldfarb continued, “We have achieved our booking targets, built the capability to launch a significant and compelling business in the handbag and luggage categories, and continued to improve our ability to execute more effectively and efficiently through expansion and enhancement of our operating infrastructure.”

Mr. Goldfarb concluded, “We believe that our diversification by category will drive our long-term growth.
