(BUSINESS WIRE)–Capri Holdings Limited (NYSE:CPRI), a global fashion luxury group, today announced that the Company raised its Fiscal 2022 revenue and adjusted earnings per share guidance. The updated guidance, along with a broader view of the Company’s vision, growth strategies and long term outlook, will be shared at the Company’s Virtual Investor Day today beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
The Company now expects Fiscal 2022 revenue to be approximately $5.15 billion compared to previous guidance of approximately $5.10 billion, primarily reflecting better than anticipated fiscal first quarter sales trends.

John D. Idol, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “As the world reopens, we are pleased to be seeing better than expected performance from all three of our iconic fashion luxury houses and are raising our outlook for the year. With greater visibility into the path of the global economic recovery, we now have even more confidence in the future and believe our three luxury houses position Capri Holdings to deliver multiple years of strong revenue and earnings growth.”
