Pandora achieved a new record-high gross margin of 79.4%, marking a significant increase of 190 basis points compared to Q1 2023.

Additionally, the company’s operating profit (EBIT) witnessed a notable surge, reaching 1.507 billion Danish crowns in Q1 2024, surpassing analysts’ expectations.

In light of its stellar performance, Pandora has revised its revenue guidance for fiscal year 2024, raising its organic growth outlook to a range of 8%-10%, compared to the previous forecast of 6%-9%.

Reflecting on the results, Pandora President and CEO Alexander Lacik expressed satisfaction, stating, “We are very pleased with our start to the year, as we embark on the next chapter of Phoenix. Whilst jewelry markets around us generally remain subdued, our ongoing brand investments allow us to take market share. We raise our revenue guidance and look forward to keep fueling our growth with exciting strategic initiatives over the coming years.”
