PVH reports Q2 adjusted EPS $2.10, consensus $1.88
Reports Q2 revenue $2.36B, consensus $2.33B. Commenting on these results, Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, noted, "We are pleased to report our second quarter results, which saw continued outperformance by our European businesses. However, our businesses in North America and across China experienced weak traffic trends, including the impact of protests in Hong Kong, resulting in a more promotional environment. Although we are pleased with our second quarter and first half results, we have taken a conservative approach to our second half outlook. As such, we lowered our annual revenue and EPS outlook based on our current trends and our expectation that the volatility in the macro environment, the global retail landscape and the continuing escalation of the trade tensions between the U.S. and China will cause our business to remain under pressure, as will the ongoing impact of protests in Hong Kong. We have great confidence in our diversified business model and the underlying power of CALVIN KLEIN and TOMMY HILFIGER, and believe we are positioning our businesses to succeed in the ever-changing consumer landscape. As we execute on our strategic priorities, our ongoing data and digital transformation, together with delivering the best product and consumer experience, should allow us to capture the heart of the consumer. We believe that with our two greatest assets, our people and our brands, we will unlock the long term brand growth opportunities we see and deliver sustainable long term returns for our stockholders."
