“We are pleased with our third quarter results, which reflect our balanced and diversified mix of businesses, products and markets. During the quarter, we benefited from positive momentum in our Global Upper Market, strong retail sales for Delta Israel and significant growth in both the Socks and Seamless categories. Additionally, ecommerce sales on Delta’s own website grew by double digits and we successfully concluded the acquisition of The Bogart Group,” commented Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil.

“Looking forward, we are focusing on further growing these business segments and improving the performance of our DGUSA and Delta Premium Brands by implementing a structured strategic and operational plan.”

Net income for the first nine months of 2019 totalled US$ 22.1 million, compared to US$ 23.5 million for the same period last year, a 6% decrease.

The company also reported a 20% increase in sales of US$ 446.1 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to US$ 370.8 million for the third quarter last year. Excluding Bogart, which was acquired on 2 July 2019, sales in original currency increased by 6%, compared to the third quarter of 2018. Sales for the first nine months of 2019 increased by 14% to US$ 1,185.4 million, from US$ 1,044.2 million for the same period of 2018. Excluding Bogart and Eminence sales in the first six months, sales in original currency increased by 5%, compared to the first nine months of 2018.

“The third quarter represented the first time we consolidated results for The Bogart Group. We intend to leverage its strong market position going forward, particularly as we see opportunities for it to strengthen DGUSA’s product assortment,” added Mr Dabah.

“Additionally, we plan to focus on growing the Eminence ladies and kids products, while leveraging the European brands infrastructure for selling Delta products. Looking ahead, we will focus on driving organic growth, and seek new opportunities to apply our competitive and financial strengths to deliver shareholder value.”
