Delta Apparel Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2023 Results; Record Sales Pace and Double-Digit Growth at Salt Life and DTG2Go Continue

DULUTH, Ga- Delta Apparel, Inc. (NYSE American : DLA), one of the leading providers of activewear and lifestyle apparel as well as on-demand digital printing strategies, has announced its financial results for fiscal year 2023’s second quarter. April 1, 2023.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert W. Humphreys “Our second quarter performance highlights durability and inherent benefits in our multimarket strategy during irregular demand cycles,” commented a spokesperson. We saw double-digit increases in sales across three of five of our go-to market channels. Our strength was also seen where we provided decorated “consumer ready” products close to or directly to end users.

Our Salt Life division continues to capitalize off the popularity of its lifestyle brands domestically as well as internationally. We achieved record sales during the first quarter. Salt Life’s growth included double-digit growth across its branded channels, including retail and eCommerce. It also saw healthy growth in wholesale. Salt Life has also increased the scope of its licensing portfolio with a new partnership that will generate future royalty revenues in the multibillion dollar home furnishings market.

The following are some of the ways to improve your own ability to speak. DTG2Go During the third quarter, the business continued to grow at a high rate with a topline increase of nearly 20% over the previous year. We continue to see digital print have a multi-decade runway of growth as players in traditional decorated clothing markets recognize its speed to customer and other benefits. In the current environment of high interest rates, on-demand strategies are more beneficial in terms of reducing inventory.

The clothing market is still dynamic. Delta Direct and Global Brands Retail Direct saw double digit sales growth during the quarter, despite the impact of the well-publicized inventory levels and slower demand within the supply chain they serve.

Mr. Humphreys “We are focused on managing our cash flow, reducing our inventory, and maximizing the opportunities within our company to produce ‘consumer-ready’ products with higher margins and faster turnaround times.” Implementing these initiatives, and clearing out the remaining high-priced cotton inventory from last year will help us achieve better operating results in the second half. We’ll also be able to take advantage of any accelerations in demand.
