"Fiscal 2018 was an exciting year for our company as we established a foundation to support long term growth. We created a global fashion luxury group with the acquisition of Jimmy Choo and completed the first year of our Runway 2020 strategic plan for the Michael Kors brand, ending the year significantly ahead of our expectations," John D Idol, chairman and chief executive officer, said.

Comparable sales increased 2.3 per cent, driven by strong response to innovative and elevated fashion luxury offering across accessories, footwear, ready-to-wear and men’s categories

Including licensed locations, there were 980 Michael Kors stores worldwide at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.

"Looking to fiscal 2019, we have a number of initiatives planned to drive growth in both of our luxury brands. For Michael Kors, we expect growth to be led by our retail business, as we remain focused on executing initiatives across fashion luxury product, brand engagement and customer experience. For Jimmy Choo, we will continue to make strategic investments to expand our retail fleet globally, capitalize on the significant opportunity to grow our accessories business and increase brand engagement through glamorous red-carpet marketing communications. Additionally, we will continue to explore acquisitions to complement our existing luxury portfolio. Overall, we are well-positioned to deliver long-term growth and enhance shareholder value by executing on the strategies in place for both Michael Kors and Jimmy Choo," Idol concluded. (RR)
