According to the company, further appreciation of the dollar will result in a headwind of USD 0.20 in earnings in fiscal 2023.

Tapestry expects revenues of USD 6.5 billion to USD 6.6 billion in fiscal 2023. The reported decline was primarily caused by approximately 450 basis points of FX pressure versus prior year. Constant currency revenue growth is expected to range from 2 to 4 percent.

There is expected to be a mid-single digit increase in earnings per share compared to the prior year, despite approximately USD 0.50 of currency headwinds.
