Revolve Group, Inc. reported an increase in active customers by 52,000 during the third quarter of 2023, growing to 2,510,000 as of September 30, 2023, an increase of 12 percent year-over-year.

Net sales for the quarter were 257.6 million dollars, a decrease of 4 percent.

"A key highlight of the third quarter was surpassing 2.5 million active customers, an increase of 12 percent year-over-year, and over one million more active customers than the third quarter of 2019. While average spend per active customer has decreased year-over-year in this very challenging environment, we view this as a temporary dynamic that will normalise as the environment improves," said Revolve co-founder and co-CEO Michael Mente in a statement.

Revolve brand segment net sales were 217.7 million dollars, a decrease of 2 percent and FWRD segment net sales were 39.9 million dollars, a decrease of 14 percent.

The company said that net sales in October 2023 decreased by a low-single digit percentage amidst ongoing uncertainty in the macroeconomic and geopolitical environment that continues to pressure consumer spending on discretionary products.

For the year ahead, the company now projects gross margin in the range of 51.8 percent to 51.9 percent compared to previous outlook of between 52 to 52.5 percent.

For the fourth quarter, the company said, gross margin is expected to range between 51.7 percent to 52 percent.
