Management Discussion
  • VF reported a 28% increase in revenues in Fiscal 2022 compared to Fiscal 2021, including a 1% favorable impact from foreign currency. The revenue increase was primarily attributable to recovery from the negative impact of COVID-19 on demand and distribution channels in the prior year, which included temporary closures of VF-operated retail and VF's wholesale customer stores. The growth rate has also been impacted in the current year by supply chain disruption, including port delays, lengthened transit times, logistics challenges and supplier production issues. Fiscal 2022 also included a $438.5 million (5%) contribution from the Supreme acquisition, through the one-year anniversary of the acquisition. Fiscal 2021 included an extra week when compared to Fiscal 2022 due to VF's 53-week Fiscal 2021.
