Expects improving sales trends in the third and fourth quarter with adjusted operating income rate of 5% to 6% for full year 2023

REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio, Aug. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Victoria’s Secret & Co. (“Victoria’s Secret” or the “Company”) (NYSE: VSCO) today reported 2023 financial results for the second quarter ended July 29, 2023.

Chief Executive Officer Martin Waters commented, “We delivered second quarter sales, adjusted operating income and adjusted diluted earnings per share within our guidance range while the macro environment continues to put pressure on our customer base and our core intimates categories. As anticipated, and what was a continuation of first quarter trends, sales performance in the second quarter was particularly challenging in the overall stores and digital intimates market in North America which impacted both our Victoria’s Secret and PINK businesses in the quarter. In contrast, our international business experienced sales growth in excess of 25% compared to last year and strong profit flow thru, and our recently acquired Adore Me brand also grew sales during the quarter highlighting the strength of the business model and unique digital strategies. Our teams were resiliently focused on what was within our control, managing selling margins, diligently controlling costs, and delivering inventory levels at our Victoria’s Secret and PINK businesses down low-double digits compared to last year.”
