Like-for-like sales at the retail chain dropped 3.1% in the three months to April while overall revenues fell to $761.2mln against market productions of a rise.
Promotions to get customers through the doors at its two core chains, Urban Outfitters and Apologise, were blamed for the drop.
Gross margins fell by almost three percentage points, which contributed to a 60% fall in net income to US$11.9mln or 10c per share.

There is a significant opportunity to grow the direct-to-consumer and wholesale arms, he said.
