Austin, Texas, July 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Digital Brands Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “DBG”) (NASDAQ: DBGI), a curated collection of luxury lifestyle and digital-first brands, announced that their first estimate of financial results for the quarter has ended June 30, 2021 points out that second quarter 2021 revenues are up about 100% from first quarter 2021 numbers, which include just six and a half weeks of revenue contribution from Harper & Jones.
“We believe this continues to illustrate the momentum we discussed on our first quarter results conference call and in the press release,” said Hil Davis, the company’s CEO. “As mentioned earlier, we expected improved operating results in the second quarter and we expect significantly improved operating results in the third and fourth quarters of 2021 as we now have sufficient cash and inventory to support the expected level of operations.”
Milestones have been set since the company’s IPO in May this year, which strengthened the company’s balance sheet with cash for working capital:
- The shipment of Bailey 44 products on wholesale accounts from mid-May, with a significant acceleration in wholesale booking orders for autumn 2021, corresponding to the wholesale level before the pandemic,
- The delivery of inventory for DSTLD that arrived at the company’s warehouse in late May, with the majority expected to arrive in mid-July through mid-September, and
- Developing a marketing and promotional plan, including an Amazon marketing strategy, with first roll out in mid-July and most of the spend starting this fall.
These sales estimates do not include any effects of our announced non-binding letter of intent to acquire Stateside, which will have a positive impact on sales and operating profit in 2021 upon completion of the acquisition.
The company will publish its full results for the second quarter of 2021 on or earlier August 16June 2021. The company will provide a schedule update for the associated conference call ahead of the conference call date.

About the Digital Brands Group
We offer a wide range of clothing through numerous brands, both direct to consumers and wholesalers. We have developed a business model that was derived from our establishment as a Digital Native First Vertical Brand. Digital Native First Brands are brands that were founded as e-commerce-driven companies where online sales account for a significant proportion of net sales, although they later often expand into wholesale or direct retail channels as well, and vertical brands control our own sales Products directly from our third-party manufacturers and sell directly to the end user. We focus on owning the customer’s “closet portion” by using their data and purchase history to create personalized targeted content and search for that specific customer cohort. We have strategically evolved into an omnichannel brand that offers these styles and content not only online but also in select wholesale and retail stores. We believe this approach gives us opportunities to successfully increase Lifetime Value (“LTV”) while increasing new customer growth.
