For the first quarter of 2018, SSI generated net sales of PHP 4.6 billion, higher by 7.8 percent versus the same period last year. The group saw strong top-line and same-store performance from its casual, fast fashion, luxury, and bridge categories.
Moreover, the company also benefited from a strong consumer demand because of the recently implemented TRAIN law. This is still despite the intense competitive environment, which resulted in a decline in total selling space by 7.4 percent.
Currently, SSI has 626 stores covering 126,575 square metres. This, however, is 10,090 square meters or 7.4 percent lower versus last year.
The group opened ten new stores covering approximately 435 square meters. On the other hand, it closed 22 stores covering about 3,346 square meters.
SSI’s brand portfolio was composed of 108 brands, with no brands added or discontinued during the quarter.
Net income for the quarter amounted to PHP 132.90 million, which was 1.50 percent lower than the recorded PHP 134.90 million for the same period last year.
