Kontoor says it does not operate any direct or owned business in Russia or Ukraine, adding while a small number of third-party distributors and licensees operate in these countries; this business is not material to Kontoor’s European revenue and is ‘de-minimis’ (immaterial) to total Kontoor revenue.

“As a global company, we work across borders every day. We take great pride in creating connections and strengthening communities. Taking care of each other is core to our purpose. On behalf of Kontoor, we condemn the recent unspeakable acts of violence on the people of Ukraine,” says president, CEO and chair of the board, Scott Baxter.
