VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC) today reported financial results for its second quarter (Q2'FY24) ended September 30, 2023, and announced a transformation program and quarterly per share dividend of $0.09, a 70% decrease from the previous quarter’s dividend. As the company implements the initiatives associated with Project Reinvent, it is withdrawing its FY24 revenue and earnings outlook and updating its FY24 free cash flow guidance.

Q2'FY24 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue down 2% (down 4% in constant dollars) to $3.0 billion
  • Loss per share $(1.16) versus Q2'FY23 loss per share $(0.31), impacted by the additional tax expense booked as a result of the Timberland tax case ruling; adjusted earnings per share $0.63 versus Q2'FY23 adjusted earnings per share $0.73

Bracken Darrell, President and CEO, said: "In my first 100 days, as I have spent time with our brands, teams, and customers around the world, I have developed even stronger conviction in the company's significant potential, which is far greater than what we are delivering today. Our transformation plan, Reinvent, will improve our brand-building and execution while addressing with urgency our top priorities of improving North America, accelerating the Vans turnaround, significantly reducing our fixed costs and reducing leverage. We are excited about the long term, starting with these first major steps toward improving our near-term performance, positioning us to return to growth and generate shareholder value.”

Q2'FY24 Operating Highlights

  • The North Face® delivered another quarter of double-digit revenue growth, up 19% (up 17% in constant dollars), benefiting from on-time deliveries, which negatively impacted the prior year period due to supply chain disruption
  • Vans® down 21% (down 23% in constant dollars)
  • Wholesale down 1% (down 3% in constant dollars), primarily driven by the Americas, down 11%
  • Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) down 3% (down 5% in constant dollars) and up 10% excluding Vans® (up 9% in constant dollars)
  • Americas down 11% and down 3% excluding Vans®
  • International business up 10% (up 5% in constant dollars)
    • Greater China up 8% (up 14% in constant dollars), with the APAC region up 2% (up 6% in constant dollars)
    • EMEA revenue up 14% (up 6% in constant dollars), reflecting growth across all channels

Reinvent

The company introduces Reinvent, a transformation program to enhance focus on brand-building and to improve operating performance and to allow us to achieve our full potential. Our first announced steps in this transformation cover four key priorities: Improve North America results, Deliver the Vans turnaround, Reduce costs, Strengthen the balance sheet.

  • Establish global commercial organization, inclusive of an Americas region: Change the operating model with the establishment of a global commercial structure. This includes the creation of an Americas regional platform, modeled on the company's successful operations in EMEA and APAC. With this change, Martino Scabbia Guerrini has been promoted to the newly created role of Chief Commercial Officer, with responsibility for go-to-market execution globally.
  • Sharpen brand presidents' focus on sustainable growth: A direct consequence and intent of the operating model change, which is particularly critical at this stage for the Vans brand, enables brand presidents to direct greater focus and attention to long-term brand-building, product innovation and growth strategies.
  • Appoint new Vans president: Kevin Bailey will be stepping down from the position of Global Brand President, Vans. Kevin will remain on the Executive Leadership Team reporting to Bracken Darrell, and will transition to lead Reinvent, the company's business transformation plan, and the project teams driving the work. An external search is underway for a new brand president for Vans and in the interim, Bracken Darrell will take a more active role in leading the brand and delivering its turnaround strategies.
  • Optimize cost structure to improve operating efficiency and profitability: Implement a large-scale cost reduction program, which we expect to deliver $300 million in fixed cost savings, by removing spend in non-strategic areas of the business, and simplifying and right-sizing our structure.
  • Reduce debt and leverage: In addition to improving operating performance, VF is committed to deleveraging the balance sheet. The reduction in dividend announced today is one of the steps towards this objective.

FY24 Outlook

  • The company withdraws its previous FY24 revenue and earnings guidance and updates its free cash flow projection:
    • Free cash flow for FY24 is expected to be approximately $600 million compared to the previous guidance of approximately $900 million
  • The following factors are now assumed to significantly impact revenue and profit negatively in 2H'FY24
    • Vans' performance is not anticipated to improve in 2H'FY24
    • A more difficult US wholesale environment
  • Reinvent will likely result in charges including cash and non-cash items

Matt Puckett, CFO, said: “Despite pockets of continued strong performance throughout the first half and solid profit margins in the second quarter, it's not enough and we are not making sufficient progress at Vans or in the US. Our transformation plan, Reinvent, directly addresses these areas in particular and importantly, commits to lowering our cost structure by $300 million. Through this effort and our ongoing evaluation of all aspects of our business, we remain laser-focused on cash generation and debt reduction, with the intent to return to growth, drive higher ROIC and reduce leverage."

Financial Presentation Disclosure

All per share amounts are presented on a diluted basis. This release refers to “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts, terms that are described under the heading below “Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts are the same. This release also refers to “adjusted” amounts, a term that is described under the heading below “Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Transaction and Deal Related Activities and Tax Items.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “adjusted” amounts are the same.

Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency

This release refers to “reported” amounts in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), which include translation and transactional impacts from foreign currency exchange rates. This release also refers to “constant dollar” amounts, which exclude the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. Reconciliations of GAAP measures to constant currency amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Transaction and Deal Related Activities and Tax Items

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude transaction and deal related activities associated with the review of strategic alternatives for the Global Packs business, consisting of the Kipling®, Eastpak® and JanSport® brands. Total transaction and deal related activities include costs of approximately $1 million in the first six months of fiscal 2024.

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude the impact to tax expense resulting from the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit on September 8, 2023 that upheld the U.S. Tax Court’s decision in favor of the Internal Revenue Service regarding the timing of income inclusion associated with VF’s acquisition of The Timberland Company in September 2011. The adjusted amounts also exclude the impact to tax expense resulting from the decision by the General Court on September 20, 2023 that confirmed the decision of the European Union that Belgium’s excess profit tax regime amounted to illegal State aid. The net impact to tax expense was an increase of approximately $696 million, excluding the reversal of accrued interest income, in the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2024, as a result of these two rulings.

Combined, the above items negatively impacted earnings per share by $1.79 during the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2024. All adjusted amounts referenced herein exclude the effects of these amounts.

Reconciliations of measures calculated in accordance with GAAP to adjusted amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors. The company also provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis as we cannot predict certain elements which are included in reported GAAP results.

Constant Currency Financial Information

VF is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by VF from translating its foreign revenues and expenses into U.S. dollars. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported operating results. As a supplement to our reported operating results, we present constant currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. We use constant currency information to provide a framework to assess how our business performed excluding the effects of changes in the rates used to calculate foreign currency translation. Management believes this information is useful to investors to facilitate comparison of operating results and better identify trends in our businesses.

To calculate foreign currency translation on a constant currency basis, operating results for the current year period for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable period of the prior year (rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period).

These constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, our operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(a) Transaction and deal related activities reflect activities associated with the review of strategic alternatives for the Global Packs business, consisting of the Kipling®, Eastpak® and JanSport® brands, which totaled $0.3 million and $1.4 million for the three and six months ended September 2023, respectively. The transaction and deal related activities resulted in a net tax benefit of $0.1 million and $0.4 million in the three and six months ended September 2023, respectively.

(b) Tax items include the impact to tax expense resulting from the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit on September 8, 2023 that upheld the U.S. Tax Court’s decision in favor of the Internal Revenue Service regarding the timing of income inclusion associated with VF’s acquisition of The Timberland Company in September 2011. The net impact to tax expense was an increase of approximately $670.3 million in the three and six months ended September 2023, excluding the reversal of accrued interest income, as a result of this decision. Tax items also include the impact to tax expense resulting from the decision by the General Court on September 20, 2023 that confirmed the decision of the European Union that Belgium’s excess profit tax regime amounted to illegal State aid. The net impact to tax expense was an increase of approximately $26.1 million in the three and six months ended September 2023, as a result of this ruling.

(c) Amounts shown in the table have been calculated using unrounded numbers. The GAAP diluted earnings per share was calculated using 388,338,000 and 388,249,000 weighted average common shares for the three and six months ended September 2023, respectively. The adjusted diluted earnings per share impacts were calculated using 389,487,000 and 389,181,000 weighted average common shares for the three and six months ended September 2023, respectively.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The financial information above has been presented on a GAAP basis and on an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of transaction and deal related activities and certain tax items. The adjusted presentation provides non-GAAP measures. Management believes these measures provide investors with useful supplemental information regarding VF's underlying business trends and the performance of VF's ongoing operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations.

Management uses the above financial measures internally in its budgeting and review process and, in some cases, as a factor in determining compensation. While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, VF's operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

(a) Transaction and deal related activities reflect activities associated with the acquisition of Supreme Holdings, Inc. and include integration costs of $0.3 million for the six months ended September 2022. The transaction and deal related activities resulted in a net tax benefit of $0.1 million in the six months ended September 2022.

(b) Specified strategic business decisions include costs related to VF's business model transformation of $45.2 million and $51.2 million during the three and six months ended September 2022, respectively, related primarily to Corporate actions and resulting restructuring costs. Specified strategic business decisions also include costs related to a transformation initiative for our Asia-Pacific regional operations of $2.4 million and $10.2 million in the three and six months ended September 2022, respectively. The specified strategic business decisions resulted in a net tax benefit of $10.1 million and $12.3 million in the three and six months ended September 2022, respectively.

(c) VF recognized noncash impairment charges related to the Supreme reporting unit goodwill and indefinite-lived trademark intangible asset of $421.9 million during the three and six months ended September 2022. The impairment charges were driven by non-operating factors including higher interest rates and foreign currency fluctuations.

 

A noncash pension settlement charge of $91.8 million was recorded in the Other income (expense), net line item during the six months ended September 2022. The pension settlement charge resulted from the purchase of a group annuity contract, which was an action taken to streamline administration, manage financial risk associated with pension plans, and to transfer a portion of the liability associated with VF's U.S. pension plan to an insurance company.

 

The impairment and pension settlement charges resulted in a net tax benefit of $58.6 million and $72.4 million in the three and six months ended September 2022, respectively.

(d) Amounts shown in the table have been calculated using unrounded numbers. The GAAP diluted earnings per share was calculated using 387,688,000 and 387,625,000 weighted average common shares for the three and six months ended September 2022, respectively. The adjusted diluted earnings per share impacts were calculated using 388,483,000 and 388,439,000 weighted average common shares for the three and six months ended September 2022, respectively.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The financial information above has been presented on a GAAP basis and on an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of transaction and deal related activities, activity related to specified strategic business decisions, impairment and a pension settlement charge. The adjusted presentation provides non-GAAP measures. Management believes these measures provide investors with useful supplemental information regarding VF's underlying business trends and the performance of VF's ongoing operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations.

Management uses the above financial measures internally in its budgeting and review process and, in some cases, as a factor in determining compensation.

In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
