Analysts’ revenue expectation for 2019

For 2019, RH’s management expects its revenue to be in the range of $2.72 billion to $2.82 billion, which represents growth of 8% to 12% from 2018.

Analysts expect RH to post revenue of $2.76 billion in 2019, which represents growth of 9.3% from $25.3 billion in 2018. The revenue growth is expected to be driven by the opening of new galleries and an increase in comparable brand revenue. The company is planning to open five galleries in 2019, and its first guest house in New York City. The company’s 2019 revenue growth will also be driven by the increased revenue from its RH New York with the completion of street work, and the addition of outdoor seating to the gallery in the spring of 2019. The management is also planning to extend its new brands and expand its assortments in 2019.
