The Revolve Group is an online shop and clothing manufacturer for millennials and Generation Z. Nearly 50,000 clothes, footwear, accessories, and beauty products from 1,000 brands are available on the marketplace. Revolve's services are available in many countries throughout the world, although the company's primary market is North America.
The Freedom Finance analytical team presented a Revolve investment proposal last year. The company subsequently exhibited a profit margin of more than 40% in the three weeks after the advice. The company is still worth investing in, as you will see below.
What's the Idea?
Profit from stocks that have the potential to develop due to a focus on millennials, a sound business strategy, and a solid financial situation.

Why do we like Revolve Group?
Reason 1: The growth of operational indicators due to the efficient organisation of business processes
Last year, the Revolve Group's unique business strategy not only enabled it to survive the entire lockdown imposed in several nations but also helped it improve its key operational indicators.
We have identified the main factors that contributed to this:
- Cost savings on real estate rental and maintenance. Free funds were diverted to the development of the company's digital-direction and marketing. As a result, Revolve reaped enormous benefits throughout the pandemic and continues to do so.
- The implementation of the dynamic inventory management program, which we discussed in our previous investment idea. With its assistance, the company forecasts demand and enhances the inventory turnover rate, which is a key sign in retail.
- Changing Consumer Behaviour: Consumers are increasingly making online purchases. This pattern continues, as indicated by the sales of many retailers through online platforms. The predominance of new strains of COVID-19, as well as the implementation of limitations in specific places, will reinforce the habit of online buying.
As a result, Revolve's operating performance increased in the second quarter of 2021. During this time, there were 1.55 million active buyers, which is 77 thousand more than the previous year. The number of completed orders reached 1.77 million in the quarter, up from 1.28 million in the first quarter, representing a 52.1 per cent year-on-year increase. The average order value increased to $255, a 25% increase over Q2 2020.
As a result, the advantages of Revolve's business strategy began to pay off. Revolve's capitalisation will rise higher in the medium term if this successful trend continues and the company's market share grows.
Reason 2: Focus on millennials
The concentration of Revolve's Revolve and Forward brands on millennials and Gen Z is one of its distinguishing features. Previously, this positioning was promoted by marketing initiatives at music festivals and youth social gatherings. Furthermore, the company has cooperated with young celebrities who are well-known on social media. As part of its ongoing strategy, Revolve hired Kendall Jenner as Creative Director of Forward's Premium Products Division (FWRD).
Kendall Jenner, who has 186 million Instagram followers, is one of the world's highest-paid bloggers. Jenner also has great relationships with key companies, which will assist Revolve's web platform in leveraging its different directions. New collaborations with well-known premium brands, in particular, might be expected in the near future.
Jenner will be in charge of site design, brand curation, and other related tasks for the FWRD, according to the press release.
Collaboration with Kendall Jenner may result in increased client flow and retention rates, which will have a favourable impact on the company's financial outcomes.
Reason 3: Financial performance growth
Revolve was able to show positive financial outcomes in the first half of this year. Revenue climbed by 41% to $407.5 million, while Adjusted EBITDA increased by 120 per cent to $58.4 million, with a margin of 14.3 per cent vs 9.2 per cent in the same period the previous year. The net profit for the first half was $53.8 million vs $18.4 million, with a margin of 13.2 per cent (before that, the figure was 4.5 per cent).
Revolve has $219.6 million in cash on its financial sheet, while the company has no debt. The corporation has been able to grow this amount by $175 million during the last two years. Operating processes have been implemented, resulting in positive free cash flow (FCF), which amounted to $65.3 million in the first half of 2021. Thus, the chosen method enables Revolve to display positive financial indicator dynamics while also holding a considerable stock of cash that can be dedicated to the development of their sites and further market expansion.

- MKM Partners - $80.
- Raymond James - $78.
