Management Comment

Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, stated: “The 2015 third quarter was consistent with our expectations. Sales in the third quarter and the first nine months of 2015 increased at a double digit rate, led by an increase in activewear products. Growth in sales, in terms of constant currency, was reflected in all of our geographic markets.”

“Looking at the key drivers of our profitable growth this quarter, we saw an increase in sales in Delta USA and in the Global Upper Market segments, while both our Schiesser business in Europe and Delta Israel increased sales in original currency. A rising proportion of our sales now comes from branded products, which has been another of our major strategic initiatives.”

“We have continued to invest in long-term growth initiatives,” Mr. Dabah continued.“Earlier this year, we acquired the PJ Salvage brand, providing an opportunity to expand our presence in sleepwear and loungewear, attract a millennial customer base, and strengthen our position in the upper market. We are also excited about our license agreement with Columbia for men’s and ladies’ underwear, launching in 2016; our new seamless R&D center at Nike HQ in Oregon; and a new factory in Vietnam set to open in the 2016 first half.”

EBITDA before one-time items was $27.1 million or 9.5% of sales in the 2015 third quarter, an increase of 4% compared with $26.1 million in the 2014 period.
