Jul 15 15
UNIQLO Japan reported earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended May 31, 2015. For the nine months, revenue expanded to ¥638.1 billion (+12.0% year-on-year), and operating profit increased to ¥113.7 billion (+21.6% year-on-year). Same-store sales expanded a strong 8.8% year-on-year during the nine-month period. In addition, operating profit increased significantly, due to a 1.0% improvement in the gross profit to revenue margin and a 0.6% fall in the selling, general and administrative expenses to revenue ratio. The strong rise in same-store sales at UNIQLO Japan was largely attributable to firm sales of core Fall Winter ranges such as HEATTECH and Ultra-Light Down, followed by strong sales of Spring Summer ranges such as bottom wear and AIRism innerwear. Segment income (profit before income taxes) was ¥116,964 million against ¥93,800 million a year ago.
For the quarter, the company reported revenue of ¥183,602 million against ¥163,896 million a year ago. Operating profit was ¥24,310 million against ¥21,861 million a year ago. Segment income (profit before income taxes) was ¥26,144 million against ¥21,761 million a year ago.
