Levi Strauss was a public company from 1971 until 1985, when it was taken private. It went public again in March at an offering price of $17 a share and closed on Tuesday at $21.88.
"We delivered our sixth consecutive quarter of double-digit constant-currency revenue growth," said Chip Bergh, president and CEO. "Growth was broad-based across all three regions and all channels, demonstrating that our strategies are working and our investments are paying off."
The company reported gross margins of 54.6% in its fiscal first quarter while operating income rose 15% year over year to $201 million.
For the year, the company said it expects revenue growth in the mid-single digit percentage.
