Cherokee has posted its highest ever second-quarter revenue and earnings, with the apparel label benefiting from an international branch-out.
 
Net revenues for the period ending 29 July rose 10.2% to $12.4m, compared to revenues of $11.3m in the same quarter last year.
 
Net earnings for the three months increased by 8.0% to $4.9m, or $0.56 per diluted share, compared to $4.6m, or $0.52 per diluted share in the year ago period.
 
Cherokee president Howard Siegel said: "We are pleased to report another record quarter due primarily to the growth in our international royalty revenues as we continue to successfully expand the business by developing our 'world brand' strategy for Cherokee.

"We have begun to realise revenues from the sales of Cherokee branded products in Central Europe (Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic) in our first and second quarters and those volumes, along with the continued growth in the UK and Ireland, were a major contributor to our increased revenues in our second quarter."

Tesco Hungary has launched the sale of Cherokee-branded products, and the company will report royalties from Tesco Hungary in its third and fourth quarters.

The company also noted continued strong growth in the US and Canadian markets.
