2025 Growth Strategy
At its Investor Day, Tapestry’s senior leadership team will present a detailed overview of the Company’s 2025 growth strategy, designed to amplify and extend the competitive advantages of its brands, with a focus on four strategic priorities:
Building Lasting Customer Relationships: The Company’s brands will leverage Tapestry’s transformed business model to drive customer lifetime value through a combination of increased acquisition, retention and reactivation.
Fueling Fashion Innovation & Product Excellence: The Company will drive sustained growth in core handbags and small leathergoods, while accelerating gains in footwear and lifestyle products.
Delivering Compelling Omni-Channel Experiences: The Company will extend its omni-channel leadership to meet the customer wherever they shop, delivering growth online and in stores.
Powering Global Growth: The Company will support balanced growth across regions, prioritizing North America and China, its largest markets, while capitalizing on opportunities in under-penetrated geographies such as Southeast Asia and Europe.
Long-term Financial Targets
Scott Roe, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Tapestry, Inc., said, “We have powerful brands that participate in attractive and durable categories with a business model that is both proven and profitable. We will remain balanced in our approach to fueling revenue gains, operating margin expansion and earnings increases. At the same time, we will continue to be disciplined allocators of capital, with a plan to return $3 billion to shareholders through FY25, supported by our strong free cash flow. Together, we believe this will drive significant total shareholder returns over our planning horizon.”
Tapestry is introducing its Fiscal 2025 financial targets, including:
Revenue of $8 billion, representing a three-year CAGR of 6% to 7%;
Coach revenue growth at a mid-single-digit three-year CAGR to $5.7 billion, while maintaining an operating margin of 30%;
Kate Spade revenue growth at a high-single digit three-year CAGR to $1.9 billion, while expanding operating margin to mid-teens. The brand remains on track to achieve $2 billion in revenue and high-teens operating margin;
Stuart Weitzman revenue growth at a low-double digit three-year CAGR to $450 million while expanding operating margin to high-single-digits;
Operating margin in the area of 19%, representing expansion of approximately 100 basis points versus FY22;
Earnings per diluted share of over $5, for a low-to-mid-teens three-year CAGR; and
Cumulative cash return of $3 billion to shareholders by Fiscal 2025 supported by a targeted dividend payout ratio of 35% to 40% and share repurchases of at least $700 million annually.
These targets incorporate the Company’s previously announced Fiscal 2023 outlook, which was provided with its fourth quarter earnings results in mid-August. As previously noted, this outlook assumed:
No further appreciation of the USD; information provided based on spot rates at the time of forecast;
Continued gradual recovery in Greater China from Covid-related disruption; no further significant lockdowns or incremental supply chain pressures from the Covid-19 pandemic;
No material worsening of inflationary pressures or consumer confidence; and

Given the dynamic nature of these and other external factors, financial results could differ materially from the outlook provided.
