Ralph Lauren triples its earnings. The US group has tripled its profit to 399.3 million dollars in the first nine months of its current fiscal year (closed on December 30).
Between March and December the company reached a revenue of 4.8 billion dollars, 3.3% above the figure registered in the same period of the previous year.
Ralph Lauren has attributed the results to the effects of the policies that has been applying and, especially, to the good sales performance during the holiday season, when the business result has been better than expected.
