(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). Sales rose at Delta Galil in the second quarter and first half of 2015, while net income dropped by 5% in both periods. With the release of results, CEO Isaac Dabah pointed out “the volatile currency exchange environment posed headwinds to profit growth.”
Meanwhile the company announced Yossi Hajaj, the current CFO will soon be promoted to deputy CEO, EVP and head of global operations, and Israeli business executive Jacob Heen will become the new CFO in October 2015.
Delta predicted that it is on track for continued annual sales growth above the billion dollar mark. It stated that for the full year 2015 “sales are expected to range between $1,065 million-$1,085 million, representing an increase of 3%-5% (equivalent to 7% to 9% in constant currency) from 2014 actual sales of $1,031.9 million.” It added that “Full-year 2015 net income is expected to range between $48.5 million-$51.5 million, representing an increase of 0%-6% from 2014 actual net income of $48.4 million; excluding the exchange rate impact the increase is between 12%-18%.”
In the second quarter the company earned $9.3 million on sales of $255.5 million, compared to net income of $9.8 million on sales of $249.2 million during the same period in 2014. In the first half of 2015 the company earned $18.2 million on sales of $508.4 million, compared to $19.1 million on sales of $487.2 million in 2014.
Commenting on the period, Dabah declared, “Our results for the 2015 second quarter demonstrate the strength of the company’s business model, which is built on a diverse blend of branded and private label products, an expanding global presence, and a range of market segments that, together, provide both growth momentum and balance. Thus, while the volatile currency exchange environment posed headwinds to profit growth, we still delivered our second-highest quarter for sales and increased our cash flow substantially. This also has been an important year for strategic growth initiatives.”
“This also has been an important year for strategic growth initiatives,” Dabah continued. “We recently announced the acquisition of the PJ Salvage brand, which will add to our branded business, increase our penetration of the upper market segment, and broaden our international footprint. The opening of our seamless R&D center at Nike HQ in Oregon, and our men’s and ladies’ underwear license with Columbia reflect the growth of these two important customer relationships. And, we are adding capacity with a factory in Vietnam and a dye house in Egypt, to support our continued global expansion.”
