The company, famous for its Gommino loafers, said sales in the first three quarters of 2017 fell to 722.2 million euros ($838 million), below a Thomson Reuters estimate of 737 million euros. At constant exchange rates sales were down 4.2 percent.

Tod’s said that like-for-like sales at its 272 directly-owned stores were down 2.7 percent from January to end-September.

The group said that it would replace current Chief Executive Stefano Sincini with a former Bulgari manager, Umberto Macchi di Cellere, starting from Dec. 1.

The company is holding an investor day on Tuesday.
