LOS ANGELES, (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Guess?, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/204246219/composite GES -0.55% today reported financial results for its third quarter ended October 30, 2021.

Carlos Alberini, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very pleased with our performance this quarter, which exceeded our expectations for revenues and earnings. Our revenues for the quarter increased 13% versus last year and were up 4% compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, pre-pandemic. The better performance than expected was driven by our European Wholesale, Americas Retail and Licensing businesses, which posted strong top and bottom line results across the board. All in all, we delivered a 10% operating margin in the period, driven by strong gross margin expansion, as a result of lower promotional activity and improved IMUs in spite of increased freight costs related to the supply chain disruptions experienced in the market.”

Paul Marciano, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, added, “I am very pleased with the progress we have made during the last few months with our brand elevation strategy. For the first time in our Company’s history we have one global line of products across all categories and our products are highly elevated, with a strong focus on quality and sustainability. The Guess brand is enjoying strong momentum worldwide, and we see a big opportunity to gain market share and grow in multiple markets and product categories.”

Mr. Alberini concluded, “We are confident in our plans for the holiday business. Our inventory position is strong, and our customers are responding well to our assortments. Based on our progress, we now expect to deliver an operating margin of 11.0% in the current year, double that of fiscal 2020, pre-pandemic. I am very pleased with our performance for the current year but I am even more excited with what lies ahead for us. I believe that we are at an inflection point at Guess and I am very confident our business is well positioned to generate superior returns in the future. We will continue to prioritize returning value to our shareholders and announced today that our Board has approved to double our quarterly cash dividend from $0.1125 to $0.225.”

Outlook

Given the current circumstances regarding the coronavirus (or “COVID-19”) crisis and its uncertain impact on our operations, we are not providing detailed guidance for the fourth quarter or the full fiscal year ending January 29, 2022. We expect revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 to be down mid-single digits versus the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 as the impact of permanent store closures and an unfavorable shift of European wholesale shipments from the fourth quarter into the first quarter of next year are partially offset by continued momentum in our global e-commerce business.

For the full fiscal year 2022, assuming no increased COVID-related shutdowns from current levels (approximately 1% of our directly operated stores), we expect revenues to be down low-single digits versus fiscal 2020 and operating margin to reach approximately 11.0%. These comparisons are versus the pre-pandemic periods from two fiscal years prior in order to provide a more normalized comparison.

A reconciliation of the Company’s outlook for GAAP operating margin to adjusted operating margin for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ending January 29, 2022 is as follows:

Reconciliation of GAAP Outlook to Adjusted Outlook
           
      Fourth Quarter of   Fiscal Year 2022
GAAP operating margin   13.1%   11.0%
  Certain professional service and legal fees and related (credits) cost [1]   —%   0.1%
  Asset impairment charges [2]   —%   0.1%
  Net (gains) losses on lease modifications [3]   —%   —%

COVID-19 Third Quarter Business Update

The COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to negatively impact the Company’s businesses. Although we achieved slightly higher net revenue during the third quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020, we remained challenged by lower traffic and capacity restrictions. In addition, while we began the third quarter of fiscal 2022 with 100% of our directly operated stores open for business, we started to incur a new round of government-mandated temporary store closures toward the end of the quarter. This resulted in the closure of less than 5% of our directly operated stores as of October 30, 2021, mostly in Europe, the impact of which was minimal to our third quarter results.

In light of the fluid nature of the pandemic, we continue to carefully monitor global and regional developments, particularly in Europe, and respond appropriately. We also continue to strategically manage expenses in order to protect profitability.

Dividend

The Company’s Board of Directors has approved an increase to our quarterly cash dividend payment, from $0.1125 to $0.225 per share, realigning the per-share dividend amount to the level prior to the issuance of our Convertible Senior Notes in April 2019. The dividend will be payable on December 24, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on December 8, 2021.

Presentation of Non-GAAP Information

The financial information presented in this release includes non-GAAP financial measures, such as adjusted results, constant currency financial information, free cash flows and return on invested capital. For the three months and nine months ended October 30, 2021, October 31, 2020 and November 2, 2019, the adjusted results exclude the impact of certain professional service and legal fees and related (credits) costs, certain separation charges, asset impairment charges, net (gains) losses on lease modifications, non-cash amortization of debt discount on the Company’s convertible senior notes, the related income tax effects of the foregoing items, the impact from changes in the income tax law on deferred income taxes in certain tax jurisdictions, net income tax settlements and adjustments to specific uncertain income tax positions, as well as certain discrete income tax adjustments related primarily to an intra-entity transfer of intellectual property rights to a wholly-owned Swiss subsidiary, in each case where applicable. These non-GAAP measures are provided in addition to, and not as alternatives for, the Company’s reported GAAP results.

The Company has excluded these items from its adjusted financial measures primarily because it believes these items are not indicative of the underlying performance of its business and the adjusted financial information provided is useful for investors to evaluate the comparability of the Company’s operating results and its future outlook (when reviewed in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP financial statements). A reconciliation of reported GAAP results to comparable non-GAAP results is provided.

This release also includes certain constant currency financial information. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amount reported from translating the Company’s foreign revenue, expenses and balance sheet amounts into U.S. dollars. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported operating results under GAAP. The Company provides constant currency information to enhance the visibility of underlying business trends, excluding the effects of changes in foreign currency translation rates. To calculate net revenue and earnings (loss) from operations on a constant currency basis, actual or forecasted results for the current-year period are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable period of the prior year. The constant currency calculations do not adjust for the impact of revaluing specific transactions denominated in a currency different from the functional currency of that entity when exchange rates fluctuate. However, in calculating the estimated impact of currency on our earnings (loss) per share for our actual or forecasted results, the Company estimates gross margin (including the impact of merchandise-related hedges) and expenses using the appropriate prior-year rates, translates the estimated foreign earnings at the comparable prior-year rates, and excludes the year-over-year earnings impact of gains or losses arising from balance sheet remeasurement and foreign currency contracts not designated as merchandise hedges. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The Company also includes information regarding its free cash flows in this release. The Company calculates free cash flows as cash flows from operating activities less (i) purchases of property and equipment and (ii) payments for property and equipment under finance leases. Free cash flows are not intended to be an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, but rather to provide additional visibility to investors regarding how much cash is generated for discretionary and non-discretionary items after deducting purchases of property and equipment and payments for property and equipment under finance leases. Free cash flow information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. A reconciliation of reported GAAP cash flows from operating activities to the comparable non-GAAP free cash flow measure is provided.

The Company also includes information regarding its return on invested capital (or “ROIC”) in this release. The Company defines ROIC as adjusted net operating profit after income taxes divided by two-year average invested capital. The Company believes ROIC is a useful financial measure for investors in evaluating how efficiently the Company deploys its capital. The Company’s method of calculating ROIC may differ from other companies’ methods and, therefore, might not be comparable.

The current global economic climate, length and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, and uncertainty surrounding potential changes in U.S. policies and regulations may amplify many of these risks.

Footnotes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Data
 
Footnotes:
 
[1]   Amounts for the full fiscal year include certain professional service and legal fees and related (credits) costs recognized during the nine months ended October 30, 2021 which the Company otherwise would not have incurred as part of its business operations. The Company is unable to predict future amounts as these expenditures are inconsistent in amount and frequency and certain elements used to estimate such items have not yet occurred or are out of the Company’s control. As such, the Company has not considered any future charges in the accompanying GAAP outlook.
 
[2]   Amounts for the full fiscal year include asset impairment charges related primarily to impairment of operating lease right-of-use assets and property and equipment related to certain retail locations recognized during the nine months ended October 30, 2021 that resulted from lower revenue and future cash flow projections from the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and expected store closures. The adjusted results do not assume any additional future asset impairment charges because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount. As such, the Company has not considered any future asset impairment charges and recorded amounts currently determined under GAAP.
 
[3]   Amounts for the full fiscal year represent net (gains) losses on lease modifications related primarily to the early termination of certain lease agreements recognized during the nine months ended October 30, 2021. The Company is unable to predict future amounts as these (gains) losses are inconsistent in amount and frequency and certain elements used to estimate such items have not yet occurred or are out of the Company’s control. As such, the Company has not considered any future (gains) losses in the accompanying GAAP outlook.
 
[4]   For GAAP purposes, the Company incurs dilution above the strike price of the Company’s convertible senior notes of $25.78. However, the Company excludes from its adjusted diluted shares outstanding calculation the dilutive impact of the convertible notes between $25.78 and $46.88, based on the bond hedge contracts in place that will deliver shares to offset dilution in these ranges. At stock prices in excess of $46.88, the Company incurs dilution related to the notes, and it would have an obligation to deliver additional shares in excess of the dilution protection provided by the bond hedges. Diluted net income per share for the three and nine months ended October 30, 2021 is calculated based on GAAP net income and diluted weighted-average shares of 65,852,024 and 65,892,772, respectively. There was no dilution related to the convertible notes for either period.
 
[5]   The adjusted results reflect the exclusion of certain professional service and legal fees and related (credits) costs, certain separation charges, asset impairment charges, net (gains) losses on lease modifications, non-cash amortization of debt discount on the Company’s convertible senior notes, the related income tax impacts of these adjustments, as well as certain discrete income tax adjustments related primarily to an intra-entity transfer of intellectual property rights to a wholly-owned Swiss subsidiary, in each case where applicable. A complete reconciliation of actual results to adjusted results is presented in the “Reconciliation of GAAP Results to Adjusted Results.”
 
[6]   Amounts recorded represent certain professional service and legal fees and related (credits) costs which the Company otherwise would not have incurred as part of its business operations.
 
[7]   Amounts represent certain separation-related charges due to headcount reduction in response to the pandemic and due to the separation of our former Chief Executive Officer.
 
[8]   Amounts represent asset impairment charges related primarily to impairment of operating lease right-of-use assets and property and equipment related to certain retail locations resulting from lower revenue and future cash flow projections from the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and expected store closures.
 
[9]   Amounts recorded represent net (gains) losses on lease modifications related primarily to the early termination of certain lease agreements.
 
[10]   In April 2019, the Company issued $300 million principal amount of 2.00% convertible senior notes due 2024 (the “Notes”) in a private offering. The Company has separated the Notes into liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components. The debt discount, which represents an amount equal to the fair value of the equity component, is amortized as non-cash interest expense over the term of the Notes. Estimates of adjusted earnings per share for the full fiscal year 2024 exclude the amortization anticipated to be recorded in those years as such amounts are known. The Company has not assumed any potential share dilution related to the convert or related warrants.
 
[11]   Amounts represent discrete income tax adjustments related primarily to the impacts from an intra-entity transfer of intellectual property rights to a wholly-owned Swiss subsidiary during the quarter ended October 30, 2021, impacts from cumulative valuation allowances and the income tax benefits from an income tax rate change due to net operating loss carrybacks.
 
[12]   The income tax effect of certain professional service and legal fees and related (credits) costs, separation charges, asset impairment charges, net (gains) losses on lease modifications and the amortization of debt discount was based on the Company’s assessment of deductibility using the statutory income tax rate (inclusive of the impact of valuation allowances) of the tax jurisdiction in which the charges were incurred.
 
[13]   The Company made a U.S. income tax payment of $80.4 million in the three months ended October 30, 2021, with a remaining estimated $27.0 million currently expected to be paid in January 2022 due to an intra-entity transfer of intellectual property rights to a wholly-owned Swiss subsidiary.
 
[14]   During fiscal year 2020, the Company recorded the impact from changes in the income tax law on deferred income taxes in certain tax jurisdictions, net income tax settlements and adjustments to specific uncertain income tax positions.
 
[15]   The Company is unable to predict future amounts for items excluded for non-GAAP for fiscal year 2024, with the exception of amounts related to the amortization of debt discount, as these expenditures and credits are inconsistent in amount and frequency and certain elements used to estimate such items have not yet occurred or are out of the Company's control. As such, the Company has not considered any future charges in the accompanying GAAP outlook.
 
[16]   During fiscal year 2020, the Company adopted a comprehensive new lease standard which superseded previous lease guidance. The standard requires a lessee to recognize an asset related to the right to use the underlying asset and a liability that approximates the present value of the lease payments over the term of contracts that qualify as leases under the new guidance. The adoption of the standard resulted in the recording of operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities.
 
[17]   During fiscal year 2019, the Company recognized a charge of €39.8 million ($45.6 million) related to a fine by the European Commission related to its inquiry concerning potential violations of European Union competition rules by the Company.
 
[18]   The adjusted earnings from operations for fiscal year 2020 reflect the exclusion of certain items which the Company believes are not indicative of the underlying performance of its business.
 
[19]   Income taxes are calculated using the adjusted effective income tax rate for fiscal year 2020 of 21.7% and a projection of 25% for the fiscal 2024 effective income tax rate.
 
[20]   The Company defines return on invested capital (or "ROIC") as adjusted net operating profit after taxes divided by two-year average invested capital.
