Delta Galil Industries, global manufacturer and marketer of branded and private label apparel products for men, women and children, has reported 23 per cent rise in sales in the first quarter of 2017 with a total of $315.7 million in comparison to $256.7 million in the first quarter of 2016. Sales for 2017 is expected to reach $1,330-$1,370 million.

The net income excluding one-time items was $7.2 million for the 2017 first quarter, representing an 8 per cent decrease from $7.9 million in the first quarter last year. Net income was $5.6 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $7.9 million in the first quarter last year, representing a 29 per cent decrease.

"We are pleased with the continued strength of our diversified business model. Our first quarter results were in line with our plan, and consistent with Delta’s historical performance of generating higher profits in the second half of the year," said Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil.

"During the quarter, we made meaningful changes in our company that will improve our efficiency and production capacity. We started to run our Vietnamese factory with 750 new employees, and are on track to have our first orders shipped in April 2017. We expect the facility to reach full operational status in 2018," said Dabah.

"Also during the quarter, we signed a licensing deal with Calvin Klein Inc. to develop, produce and distribute boys and girls underwear, sleepwear and socks for the brand. This represented an important step in our ongoing strategy of enhancing our branded portfolio and broadening our presence in the premium sector," Dabah added. "We continue to have a strong balance sheet to support our acquisition strategy, and we remain focused on growing our global business segment, while attaining strong EBITDA growth in 2017 and beyond."
