Company’s net income dropped from $124 million in Q3 FY19 to $27 million in the reported quarter.
“As we continue to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact, we are laser focused on the areas that will drive value and enable us to emerge stronger on the other side, including elevating our already iconic brand, investing in digitisation, and accelerating our efforts to diversify across geographies, product categories and distribution channels, including doubling down on our fast-growing direct-to-consumer business,” Chip Bergh, president and chief executive officer of Levi Strauss & Co, said in a press release.
Gross profit for Q3 FY20 was down to $577 million ($767 million). Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses fell 19 per cent to $484 million ($596 million). Company reported a sharp decline in its operating income during Q3 FY20 to $92 million ($171 million).

“We bounced back this quarter, delivering profitability and generating strong cash flows,” Harmit Singh, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Levi Strauss & Co, said. “The strength of the Levi’s brand is demonstrated in our gross margins, and revenues have been recovering from Covid-19 related disruptions faster than expected, driven by e-commerce, international and our women’s business, particularly within Europe and in the United States.”
