Casualwear maker VF Corporation is maintaining positive predictions for the company's fourth quarter revenues and earnings.

VF, which will report full fourth quarter results on 5 February, had predicted in October that revenues would rise 18% and earnings per share 13% during the period.

Chairman and CEO Mackey McDonald said the reaffirmation of the company's trading position was a validation of its "unique" business model.

VF Corporation president Eric Wiseman added: "We're looking forward to finishing this year on a very strong note and have confidence that we will maintain our momentum into next year and beyond."
