Crocs, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

NIWOT, Colo., Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ:CROX) today reported financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenue decreased 6.3% to $323.8 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2015. On a constant currency basis, revenue decreased 6.2%.
  • Net income attributable to common stockholders on a GAAP basis increased 21.1% to $11.7 million or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2015.

Gregg Ribatt, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Despite a decline in our revenue, I am encouraged by our strategic progress which has enabled us to help mitigate the top-line pressure on profitability by delivering better than expected gross margins and managing expenses while reducing inventories. The global retail environment became more challenging as the second quarter progressed. This impacted our wholesale reorder opportunities and contributed to our sales shortfall relative to expectations. These headwinds were partially offset by a 2.9% increase in global direct-to-consumer comparable store sales, which is a positive indication that consumers are responding favorably to our new product line and enhanced marketing efforts. We remain confident that we have successfully repositioned the business and built the platform to provide sustained growth and profitability over the long-term.”

Second Quarter Operating Results

In the second quarter of 2016, the company reported GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $11.7 million or $0.13 per diluted share, compared with net income attributable to common stockholders of $9.7 million or $0.11 per diluted share in the same quarter of the prior year.

As outlined in detail in the non-GAAP reconciliations set forth later in this press release, the company recorded net charges of $0.3 million unrelated to our core business in the three months ended June 30, 2016, compared with $17.6 million in the three months ended June 30, 2015. Excluding these items, the company reported on a comparable basis, non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders of $12.0 million in the three months ended June 30, 2016, versus non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders of $27.3 million in the three months ended June 30, 2015.

For the three months ended June 30, 2016, the company had 73.4 million weighted average common shares outstanding and 74.2 million diluted shares outstanding. The company did not repurchase any shares during the three months ended June 30, 2016.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2016 were $146.7 million compared with $143.3 million as of December 31, 2015. Inventory was $169.9 million as of June 30, 2016 compared to $168.2 million as of December 31, 2015.

Financial Outlook

The company expects third quarter 2016 revenue in the $245.0 to $255.0 million range compared to $274.1 million in the third quarter 2015. For the full year the company expects revenue to be down low single digits compared to the year ended December 31, 2015. This guidance reflects the more cautious retail environment and the slower turnaround in China.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), we present “Non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expenses”, “Non-GAAP cost of sales”, and “Non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders”, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted results exclude the impact of items that management believes affect the comparability or underlying business trends in our consolidated financial statements in the periods presented.

We also present certain information related to our current period results of operations through “constant currency”, which is a non-GAAP financial measure and should be viewed as a supplement to our results of operations and presentation of reportable segments under U.S. GAAP. Constant currency represents current period results that have been restated using prior year average foreign exchange rates for the comparative period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Management uses adjusted results to assist in comparing business trends from period to period on a consistent non-GAAP basis in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts, and investors concerning our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and other users of our consolidated financial statements as an additional tool for evaluating operating performance. We believe they also provide a useful baseline for analyzing trends in our operations. Investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(1) Comparable store status is determined on a monthly basis. Comparable store sales includes the revenue of stores that have been in operation for more than twelve months. Stores in which selling square footage has changed more than 15% as a result of a remodel, expansion, or reduction are excluded until the thirteenth month in which they have comparable prior year sales. Temporarily closed stores are excluded from the comparable store sales calculation during the month of closure. Location closures in excess of three months are excluded until the thirteenth month post re-opening. E-commerce revenue is based on same site sales period over period.

(2) Reflects quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year change as if the current period results were in “constant currency,” which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Constant currency is a measure utilized by management in which current period results have been restated using prior year average foreign exchange rates for the comparative period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends by excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. We do not suggest that investors should consider this non-GAAP measure in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
