May 9 Ralph Lauren Corp said on Friday it
expected global revenues to rise between 6 percent and 8 percent
in fiscal 2015 but warned its operating margin would decline as
it spends money to further build its network of stores.
The company, whose brands include Club Monaco stores, chaps
and its namesake brands, said revenue in the fiscal fourth
quarter ended March 29 rose 13.6 percent to $1.87 billion. That
topped the average Wall Street estimate of $1.83 billion,
according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Net income rose 20.5 percent to $153 million, or $1.68 per
share, from $127 million, or $1.37, a year earlier.
