Levi Strauss & Co. announced financial results for the fiscal year ended November 28, 2021.  “We achieved strong results, including multi-decade record revenues and profitability, delivering an adjusted EBIT margin for the full year of 12.4% despite heightened supply chain challenges and product costs,” said Harmit Singh, chief financial officer of Levi Strauss & Co. “This was the result of the unique strength of our brands and our ability to leverage our pricing power to more than offset inflationary pressures while also reinvesting in our growth.
