On August 27, 2014, Guess' Inc. (Guess') reported its Q2 FY 2015 earnings (period ended August 2, 2014). Net revenue came in at $608.6 million, down 4.8% YoY.

However, we are encouraged by our North American e-commerce business which grew by almost 50% in the second quarter." For Q3 FY 2015, Guess expects net revenues to range from $590 million to $600 million with diluted EPS to vary between $0.15 and $0.20. The Company updated its guidance for full year FY 2015, and it now expects net revenue to range from $2.44 billion to $2.48 billion and diluted EPS to be within $1.05 to $1.20.
