AEO has added roughly $425 million to total revenue since 2016, increasing at an average annual rate of 5.7%. On the other hand, Urban Outfitters has been able to add roughly $400 million to total revenues, growing at an average annual rate of 5.6%.
There is little to separate the two companies in terms of revenues. American Eagle Outfitters' revenue of $4.03 billion in 2018 was just 2% more than Urban Outfitters' figure of $3.95 billion.
However, AEO's revenue growth has been more steady. AEO has achieved consistent growth over the last few years while Urban Outfitters saw negligible growth over 2016-17 before jumping 9% in 2018 thanks to strong digital channel sales.
