Capri Holdings Ltd, a global fashion luxury group, has reported revenue growth of 13.9 per cent to $1.344 billion for Q4 of FY2019, ending March 30, 2019. This is compared to $1.180 billion revenue reported in Q4 of FY2018. For the full year, the revenue of the company grew 11 per cent to $5.238 billion as compared to $4.719 in full year of FY2018.

Capri Holdings now operates in three reportable segments representing the brands Versace, Jimmy Choo and Michael Kors. The company had acquired Versace on December 31, 2018.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the brand Versace recorded revenue of $137 million, according to a press release by Capri Holdings. Jimmy Choo recorded revenue of $139 million in Q4, an increase of 28.7 per cent, compared to the prior year. Michael Kors recorded revenue of $1.068 billion in Q4, a decrease of 0.4 per cent, compared to Q4 of prior year.

“Fiscal 2019 was a transformational year for Capri Holdings. We expanded our fashion luxury group with the addition of Versace, one of the world’s most storied Italian luxury brands. Jimmy Choo delivered strong results and we continued to execute against Michael Kors’ three strategic growth pillars of product innovation, brand engagement and customer experience. For the year, we were pleased that our luxury group delivered both double digit revenue and adjusted earnings per share growth,” said John D Idol, the company’s chairman and chief executive officer.

For the first quarter of FY2020, the company expects total revenue of approximately $1.36 billion. For the full year, the company expects total revenue of approximately $6.0 billion.

“Looking ahead, fiscal 2020 will be an investment year for our group, and we believe our initiatives will deliver strong revenue growth for Capri Holdings. Longer term, our three brands position Capri Holdings to accelerate revenue from $6 billion to $8 billion dollars, which will be led by Versace and Jimmy Choo, with Michael Kors remaining a strong foundation for Capri Holdings. We expect to grow Versace from $900 million to $2 billion dollars in revenue, expand Jimmy Choo from nearly $600 million to $1 billion in revenue, while building Michael Kors from $4.5 billion to $5.0 billion in revenue. Taken together, we believe our three iconic, founder-led fashion brands position Capri Holdings to deliver multiple years of earnings growth,” added Idol. (PC)
