By the end of fiscal year 2025, Ermenegildo Zegna aims to exceed €2 billion in annual revenue and achieve an adjusted EBIT margin of at least 15 percent, excluding the Tom Ford fashion business. The Group expects FY23 results to show that it is on track to achieve these goals, assuming no further escalation of the war in Ukraine, no significant macroeconomic or financial market deterioration, no further disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, and no other contingencies. Incidentally For the first quarter of FY23, the company expects a double-digit revenue growth
Ermenegildo ‘Gildo’ Zegna, Chairman and CEO of the Zegna Group, said: “Last year, we embarked on a journey to rebrand our namesake label, as we unveiled the Zegna One brand. We are still at the beginning of this journey, having just launched the second season and several new initiatives.
“2023 is off to an encouraging start with strong double-digit performance across the Group’s retail network and I am optimistic that the Greater China region will reopen following the Covid-19-related restrictions and with the positive response to our collections we are seeing from our customers worldwide, our global Business will continue to drive growth. However, it is important to recognize that the current financial uncertainty and an ever-changing global environment are likely to affect consumer attitudes and purchasing patterns.”
