    Lululemon on Tuesday reported revenue and profit for the holiday quarter that topped analysts’ estimates, boosted by the athletic apparel maker’s online business, and double-digit sales growth in both its women’s and men’s divisions.

    It also offered an upbeat outlook for sales during the current quarter and the year, anticipating consumer demand for its sweat-wicking leggings and sports bras will continue.

    Its shares were up about 1% in afterhours trading.

    Here’s how Lululemon did during the quarter ended Jan. 31 compared with what analysts were expecting, based on a poll by Refinitiv:

    Earnings per share: $2.58 adjusted vs. $2.49 expected

    Revenue: $1.73 billion vs. $1.66 billion expected

    Lululemon reported net income of $329.8 million, or $2.52 per share, compared with net income of $298 million, or $2.28 per share, a year earlier. Excluding one-time items, the company earned $2.58 per share, better than the $2.49 expected by analysts.

    Its revenue spiked roughly 24% to $1.73 billion from $1.4 billion a year earlier. That topped expectations for $1.66 billion.

    Its online sales surged 92%, as many consumers preferred staying put at home and shopping from the comfort of the sofa during the Covid pandemic. Women’s sales were up 19%, and men’s grew 17% during the quarter, the company said.

    In North America, revenue grew 21%, while international sales rose 47%.

    Lululemon now expects first-quarter revenue to be in a range of $1.10 billion to $1.13 billion, compared with analysts’ average estimate of $999.5 million, according to Refinitiv.

    “We are still in the early innings of our growth, fueled by exciting innovations,” CEO Calvin McDonald said in a statement.

    For fiscal 2021, the company is calling for revenue to be in a range of $5.55 billion to $5.65 billion, compared with analysts’ average estimate of $5.42 billion.

    Lululemon’s shares are down about 8% year to date, as of Tuesday’s market close. Lululemon has a market cap of $41.3 billion.
