H&M compares best to Inditex’ financial results
They are Inditex's closest competitor
Similar backgrounds- Large international european apparel brands
Net operating revenues are similar when compared to Gap and Benetton
Inditex has lower net operating revenues but has resulted in keeping their operating income higher than H&M
H&M declined to levels comparable to Inditex because of a fashion miss that reduced net income by 17% in 2000 & also because of an announcement that the effort to expand in the US was being slowed down.
H&M has slightly lower prices than Zara
H&M differs from Zara- Outsource production, spend more money on advertising and are price orientated
