Fashion retailer Revolve Group has generated $273.7m in net sales in the second quarter (Q2) of fiscal year (FY) 2023, down 6% compared to the corresponding period in FY22.

Sales of REVOLVE and FWRD segments decreased by 4% and 15% while domestic and international sales decreased by 7% and 4%, respectively, over the quarter.

The retailer’s gross profit for the quarter ending 30 June 2023 was $147.7m, which is 9% behind last year’s figure.

Driven by a lower mix of net sales at full price during the quarter, Revolve’s gross margin decreased 198 basis points (bps) to 54.0%.

Its net income also decreased by 55% to $7.3m due to a fall in net sales, year-on-year gross profit and continued pressure on certain operating expenses.

The retailer’s adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) for Q2 FY23 was $10.4m, representing a 61% decline.
