Lululemon Athletica Inc. (NASDAQ: LULU), the Canadian athletic apparel retailer, is one of the fastest-growing apparel companies in the world. The company’s healthy lifestyle-inspired athletic apparel and accessories have helped the company achieve strong growth over the last few years. Moreover, this growth has been aided by new store-openings and a steady increase in comparable-store sales as well as e-commerce sales across the U.S. and Canada. While the company’s retail business has flourished, Lululemon’s Direct-To-Consumer segment has been the single largest contributor to growth over recent years.
