Urban Outfitters Profits Double

 

Urban Outfitter’s recently released fourth-quarter profits show a doubling in profit, to $82.5 million from $39.3 million this time last year. Key to this jump is the growth of e-commerce, as direct-to-consumer business accounted for 28.1% of all sales, or $240.5 million. This figure includes mobile sales, which double to more than $25 million.
