"We are pleased to report second-quarter results that met our expectations and were fueled by continued outperformance in our wholesale business enabling us to navigate the ever-changing retail landscape,” said CEO Morris Goldfarb. “Our well-developed supply chain has enabled us to significantly expand our sourcing base throughout the world; we still see substantial opportunities for continued diversification. These capabilities, along with long-standing strong vendor relationships, have helped us mitigate some of the tariff headwinds.

"However, based on the additional tariffs that were just implemented, we feel it is prudent to revise our guidance to a more conservative posture for the remainder of this fiscal year."

G-III Apparel Group shares were trading up 3.5% at $19.50 in Thursday’s pre-market session. The stock has a 52-week high of $50.83 and a 52-week low of $18.18.
