“As strong demand for our merchandise and brands continues, I’m very pleased to report another quarter of record revenue and profit,” stated Jay Schottenstein, AEO’s CEO. “The work on our Real Power. Real Growth value creation plan is driving meaningful improvements to our profitability through real estate and inventory optimization; omni-channel and customer focus; and our supply chain initiatives. The power of our brands, operations and talent are clearly evident and we are intensely focused on ensuring these strengths continue to take AEO to new heights.”
“This quarter, we took an important next step in our supply chain transformation with the planned acquisition of Quiet Logistics to ensure ongoing efficiencies and procure a state-of-the-art logistics platform with meaningful growth potential. With our customer-first focus, the teams did a great job bringing in goods to meet strong demand this holiday season. I am extremely proud of the team’s ability to execute with precision at a time of volatility and am confident that we will exceed $600 million of operating income for the year, well above the $550 million 2023 target.” — NM
