For its second quarter to December 29, 2018, Tapestry, Inc. recorded net sales of 1.80 billion dollars, an increase of 1 percent on a reported basis and 2 percent in constant currency. Net income for the quarter was 255 million dollars on a reported basis, with earnings per diluted share of 88 cents compared to 63 million dollars with earnings per diluted share of 22 cents in the prior year period. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the quarter was 310 million dollars, with earnings per diluted share of 1.07 dollars compared to 306 million dollars with earnings per diluted share of 1.07 dollars in the prior year period.

Commenting on the results, Victor Luis, Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc., said in a statement: “During the second quarter, our sales and gross profit rose, successfully anniversarying the strong holiday results of the prior year. That said, this performance fell short of our expectations in the face of an increasingly volatile macroeconomic and geopolitical backdrop.”
