NEW YORK — That’s two in a row for Levi Strauss & Co.
The San Francisco-based jeans maker managed a 2 percent rise in its fourth-quarter sales to $1.26 billion — the second consecutive quarter of sales growth after five-and-a-half years with a slumping top line. The firm posted revenues of $1.23 billion a year ago. Sales in constant currencies rose a milder 0.6 percent over the quarter.
