Adidas AG

Adidas reported preliminary results for its first quarter of 2024 ended March 31. Revenue grew 4% year over year to 5.46 billion euros. The latest Yeezy drop generated 150 million euros in revenue and 50 million euros in operating profit in the first quarter, Adidas said. Due to better-than-expected results, the retailer increased its 2024 guidance to expect mid to high single-digit growth.

Adidas ranks No. 16 in the Europe Database, which ranks the largest online retailers in the region. 

Amazon.com Inc. (No. 1)

Amazon beat expectations with earnings for its fiscal fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, 2023. Its net sales in the quarter grew 14% year over year to $170.0 billion.


Full-year sales grew 12% to $574.8 billion in 2023, up from $514.0 billion in 2022. Read more about Amazon’s earnings here.

LVMH reported that total revenue declined 2% to 20.69 billion euros in its fiscal first quarter ended March 31. The wine and spirits category recorded the greatest decline, down 16% year over year. The decline in champagne reflected a continued decrease in post-COVID demand. Meanwhile, other products achieved strong growth in 2023, making results appear weaker this year, LVMH said.


Ecommerce sales grew more slowly than physical retail, but that’s not necessarily a problem, said chief financial officer Jean-Jacques Guiony.

“If products are being sold in stores, we see no necessity to put a lot of them onto the ecommerce and vice versa,” he said. “So basically, I would view the fact that ecommerce is growing less than stores as a good sign of the health of the store channel, which is obviously by far the most important for us.”

LVMH is No. 3 in the Europe Database.

Procter & Gamble Co. (No. 512)

Procter & Gamble reported net sales increased 1% to $20.2 billion in its third quarter ended March 31. The business attributed sales growth across beauty, grooming, home care and baby care segments to pricing increases.


“We expect the environment around us to continue to be volatile and challenging, from input costs to currencies to consumer, retailer and geopolitical dynamics,” chief financial officer Andre Schulten told investors in an earnings call.

Target Corp. (No. 5)

Target revenue grew 1.7% to $31.92 billion in its fiscal fourth quarter ended Feb. 3. Online sales declined 0.7%.

Walmart (No. 2)

So what does it mean?

  • European retailers reported the same challenges that U.S.-based retailers have noted for several quarters now as consumers trade down and look for opportunities to save money.
  • Adidas avoided the trend, surpassing expectations and raising guidance for the rest of the year due in part to its successful Yeezy collection.
