Skechers USA Inc (NYSE:SKX) shares were on the uptick after the footwear company released its fourth quarter results which saw it slip into a loss.

The company blamed the loss of US$66.7mln, or loss of 43 US cents a share, from a profit of US$6.7mln, or 4 US cents a share, from a year earlier to the recently passed US tax reform.

Revenue beats market expectations

It highlighted that its international wholesale business saw a 40.2% growth during the quarter.

On an adjusted basis, the company earned 21 US cents a share.

Revenue grew to US$970.6mln from US$764.3mln, against the market’s expectations for earnings of 13 US cents a share on revenue of US$881mln.

Monumental year

“2017 was a monumental year for Skechers as we achieved sales of more than $4 billion for the first time in our 25-year history,” said Robert Greenberg, Skechers chief executive officer in a statement on Thursday.

The company now has stores in 2,570 locations at year-end. 

Its shares rose 7.88% at US$41.97 in early trade.
