  • Net sales in fiscal 2019 in the Watch and Accessory Brands segment were $595.9 million, above the prior year period by $103.8 million or 21.1%. The increase in net sales was attributable to increases in net sales in both the International and United States locations of the Watch and Accessory Brands segment.
  • Net sales in fiscal 2019 in the United States location of the Watch and Accessory Brands segment were $225.8 million, above the prior year period by $41.1 million or 22.2%, resulting from the net sales increase in the owned brand category.  The net sales increase recorded in the owned brands category was $41.4 million, or 30.9%, primarily due to sales attributable to the addition of the MVMT brand, increased sales to chain store customers and the Company’s e-commerce business. The net sales in the licensed brands category remained relatively flat fiscal year over fiscal year, despite a challenging U.S. fashion watch market.
