Hydro Flask, Osprey Parent Sees Flattish Outdoor Segment Sales In Fiscal Q2

October 4, 2023

Helen of Troy reported sales in its Home & Outdoor segment, including OXO, Hydro Flask and Osprey eased 0.2 percent in the fiscal second quarter ending August 31, to $240.0 million. Organic sales were off 0.5 percent primarily due to a brick-and-mortar sales decline in the insulated beverage category, lower home category sales in the club and closeout channels, and a decline due to the impact of the Bed, Bath & Beyond bankruptcy.

Helen of Troy said that these factors were partially offset by an increase in online channel sales, primarily driven by the launch of the new Hydro Flask travel tumbler, stronger consumer demand for travel-related products, higher brick-and-mortar home category sales due to new retailer distribution and improved replenishment orders, and an increase in closeout channel sales in the insulated beverage and travel categories.
