Urban Outfitters, Inc. reported net income of 37.2 million dollars and earnings per diluted share of 40 cents for the three months ended October 31, 2022.

For the nine month period, the company’s net income was 128.2 million dollars and earnings per diluted share were 1.36 dollars.

Total company net sales for the third quarter increased 3.9 percent to 1.18 billion dollars, while total retail segment net sales increased 2 percent, with comparable retail segment net sales increasing 4 percent, partially offset by a 2 percent negative impact of foreign currency translation.

“We are pleased to announce record Q3 sales fueled by strong ‘comps’ at the Anthropologie and Free People brands,” said Richard A. Hayne, the company’s chief executive officer in a statement.

The increase in retail segment comparable net sales was driven by mid-single-digit positive digital channel sales and low single-digit positive retail store sales.

By brand, comparable retail segment net sales increased 13 percent at the Anthropologie Group and 8 percent at the Free People Group and decreased 9 percent at Urban Outfitters.

Wholesale segment net sales decreased 3 percent, driven by a 4 percent decrease in Free People Group wholesale sales, partially offset by a 6 percent increase in Urban Outfitters wholesale sales.

Nuuly segment net sales increased by 22.6 million dollars driven by a 185 percent increase in our subscribers during the quarter versus the prior year’s comparable quarter.
