Gucci growth helps Kering beat first quarter sales forecasts

French luxury goods conglomerate Kering on Wednesday posted slightly higher-than-expected revenue growth in the first quarter, fuelled by its star brand Gucci.

PARIS (Reuters)

Following a revamp under designer Alessandro Michele, the Italian fashion label is still expanding faster than the sector’s average – with comparable sales rising 20 percent in the January to March period – though the pace of growth is gradually easing.

At group level, Kering reported a 21.9 percent rise in revenue to 3.8 billion euros (£3.3 billion), up 17.5 percent, when stripping out currency swings and the effect of acquisitions.

That was a touch above the 16.9 percent like-for-like growth projected in an Infront Data poll of analysts for Reuters.
