G-III Apparel (GIII) to Report Q3 Earnings: What to Expect

The consensus mark for quarterly revenues is pegged at $1,072 million, indicating a 5.6% increase from the year-ago fiscal quarter’s tally.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in the fiscal third quarter currently stands at $1.85 per share, indicating a 14.4% decline from the year-ago fiscal period’s reported figure. The consensus estimate has been stable in the past 30 days.

A glimpse of G-III Apparel’s performance in the trailing four quarters shows that it has an earnings surprise of 20.8%, on average.

Key Factors to Note

G-III Apparel’s quarterly performance is most likely to have been driven by solid gains from its digital business and brand strength. Management is focused on enhancing digital growth via investments in internal talent and e-commerce sites, and improved logistics capabilities. GIII is quite optimistic about its five global power brands, including DKNY, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Karl Lagerfeld Paris.

In addition, GIII is benefiting from assortments and products resonating well with consumer demand. Additionally, its strategic licensing agreements and international business remain positives. All the aforesaid tailwinds are expected to have boosted G-III Apparel’s sales performance in the to-be-reported fiscal quarter.

On the flip side, a tough operating landscape, including inflationary pressures on consumers and higher costs related to supply-chain snarls, remains a headwind. This coupled with any deleverage in SG&A expenses might hurt G-III Apparel’s earnings results in the to-be-reported fiscal quarter. On its last earnings call, management had projected an adjusted net income of $87-$92 million or $1.80-$1.90 per share, indicating a decrease from $107.9 million or $2.18 reported in the year-ago fiscal quarter.
