MILAN (Reuters) -Italian luxury group Moncler said on Thursday it would open, refurbish or relocate 200 stores in the next three years, mostly in Asia, and diversify into shoes and clothes for warmer weather. The group, which in 2020 acquired streetwear brand Stone Island, also said it expected to beat analyst forecasts for annual sales of 2.43 billion euros ($2.57 billion) this year - up 18.5% from last year - provided a new round of lockdowns in some Chinese cities ended by July. "We think we can do 20%-25% (sales) growth," Chief Corporate and Supply Officer Luciano Santel told reporters on the sidelines of an investor presentation.
Italian luxury down jacket maker Moncler said that key data on its customers was safe following a cyber attack it suffered last year, after some data was released on the dark web on Tuesday. Updating on a hacking incident that hit the group in December, Moncler said some data obtained from the company had been released on Tuesday after the luxury group rejected a ransom demand. The stolen data concerned employees, former employees, some suppliers, consultants, business partners and some customers registered on its website.
Excluding the Stone Island's acquisition, Moncler's revenue jumped 118% to 200 million euros in the April-to-June quarter from the same period of last year, which was the hardest hit by the pandemic with shops shut and international travel brought to a standstill. Compared with the second quarter of 2019, Moncler's sales were up 5% "even though the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continued to impact second quarter revenues especially in Japan and Europe", the company said on Tuesday. Stone Island's second-quarter sales totalled 56.2 million euros, Moncler said.
