• FY net profit US$24.5m, up from $4.9m
  • Q4 sales up 42% to $25.2m
  • CEO hails fashion denim focus

Apparel company Joe’s Jeans recorded a major surge in full-year net profit thanks to a tax gain and a renewed focus on fashion denim.

Net sales for the year to 30 November rose 15.8% to US$80.1m, boosting net income to $24.5m, well up on last year’s figure of $4.9m and helped by a $16.4m income tax benefit.

In the fourth quarter, net sales soared 42% to $25.2m, while net income was $20.5m, again boosted by the tax gain and well up on last year’s figure of $1.1m.

“The sales gains we made across all channels of distribution were the direct result of a renewed focus on fashion denim, a revamping of our core basic programme, and the successful introduction of two new product classifications,” said Joe’s Jeans president and CEO Marc Crossman.
