" (5/6/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "We got further reassurance that the company should meet at least the bottom end of FY16 guidance of 2-3% org. growth, in line with consensus expectations. Therefore we believe Q4 will not see the series of earnings downgrades into the results, as we saw into Q2/Q3. Reassurance that the new initiatives will only be short-term headwinds. We believe the drag on sales of MAP in the US and the removal of third-party distributors in China will roll over in 2H17, once annualized. Additionally, we see these initiatives as positive signs that management is willing to put in place strategies to clean up distribution, leveraging its strong brand portfolio in the correct way. We believe this should put the company back on a mid- single-digit growth path, with top-line accelerating through FY17. New Ray-Ban mono-brand stores could be the answer for China. The company has lagged in China over the past decade but management’s focus on turning the region around over the past year may now be coming to fruition. The new strategy of Ray-Ban mono-brand concept stores appears to be gaining traction with comps growing double digit and plans to expand from less than 40 stores (Sept) to 70 by year-end."
