Founded in 1998, lululemon products can be seen on the shelves of many retail chains, including their own sportswear shops. In the second quarter of 2023, the brand’s B2B sales increased by 7%, whereas its Direct-To-Consumer (DTC) net revenue increased by 15%. 

Most comparably, the DTC net revenue represented 40% of the brand’s total net revenue, positioning the brand’s direct shop as a trustworthy option. Supporting this is the opening of ten new lululemon-operated stores in the second quarter, bringing the brand’s total outlets to 672.

Other reported figures are a 23% increase in gross profits to $1.3 billion and a 19% increase in income from operations marking $479.3 million. As the company reached new heights, so did its diluted earnings per share – $2.68 in Q2 2023 compared to $2.26 in Q2 2022.

With the brand’s strong performance thus far, the remaining half of the year will see lululemon continue to achieve its Power of Three ×2 growth plan. The unique growth plan aims to double its net revenue by 2026, achieving an immeasurable revenue of $12.5 billion by then.
