Levi Strauss stock falls after Q2 earnings drop on IPO costs, miss estimates

Denim specialist Levi Strauss (NYSE: LEVI), which returned to the public market two months ago, reported weaker than expected earnings for the second quarter, driving the stock lower in Tuesday’s after-hours session. The results were negatively impacted by costs related to the recent IPO.

Levi Strauss' Q2 2019 Financial Summary

The San Francisco, California-based company reported net profit of $28.2 million or $0.07 per share for the second quarter, compared to $74.9 million or $0.19 per share a year earlier. The bottom-line was negatively impacted by the costs associated with the initial public offering in March. Analysts were looking for a higher profit.

Revenues were $1.3 billion during the three-month period, up 5% from the year-ago period and in line with the consensus estimate. The top-line growth was broad-based, with sales in the Americas and Europe growing 3% and 9% respectively. Asia sales were up 6%.

Revenues from the direct-to-consumer business moved up 9%, helped by the expansion of the retail network and e-commerce platform. There were 78 more company-operated stores at the end of the quarter, compared to last year.

Chip Bergh, chief executive officer of Levi Strauss, said, “Our second quarter and first half results reflect the continued strength of our diversified business model as we delivered broad-based growth across all brands, regions and key product categories despite challenging retail and macroeconomic environment.”
