Vans shoe maker VF Corp beats quarterly revenue estimates

July 24 (Reuters) - VF Corp's quarterly revenue beat Wall Street expectations on Wednesday, helped by higher demand for its Vans sneakers and the North Face brand.

Net revenue rose 6.3% to $2.27 billion in the first quarter, beating analysts' estimate of $2.24 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

Net income fell to $49.2 million, or 12 cents per share, in the quarter ended June 29, from $160.4 million, or 40 cents per share, a year earlier, primarily due to the spin-off of its less profitable jeans business in May. (Reporting by Soundarya J in Bengaluru; Editing by Maju Samuel)
