Naked Brand (NASDAQ:NAKD) stock is on the rise Thursday after announcing major plans to change its business.
Here’s everything investors need to know about Naked Brand’s newest business plan.
- Starting off, the company has announced that it will be shifting its focus to e-commerce and its online platform.

- The company also notes that it will be acquiring other e-commerce brands to expand its own platform.
- Naked Brand will continue to focus on offering intimate apparel as it expands its business.
- It points out that its online business generates roughly $20 million in annual revenue in the U.S.
- The company’s expansion plans are in preparation for a stronger shift to online shopping.
- It points to eMarketer’s prediction that 22% of all shopping will take place online by 2023.
