Despite the sudden exit of its CEO last month, Lululemon Athletica is seeing sales success thanks to a focus on digital improvements and brand marketing. The Canadian yogawear marketer reported an 18 percent increase in fourth-quarter net revenue to $928.8 million, along with a 12 percent increase in comparable sales.
Net income in the fourth quarter was $120 million, down 11 percent from the year-earlier period.
But after relaunching its website at the end of the third quarter, just before the start of the holiday shopping season last year, Lululemon saw a 42 percent lift in e-commerce revenue compared to the fourth quarter of 2016. The chain also doubled its email subscribers in 2017, executives said.
