Macy’s, Inc. (NYSE: M) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2023 and updated its annual guidance.

“I’d like to thank our teams for executing well during the quarter. We delivered better-than-expected top and bottom line third quarter results and are entering the holiday period in a healthy inventory position. Our portfolio of nameplates are leading gift-giving destinations across the value spectrum offering exclusive products. We have refined our gift assortment, simplified our promotions and improved our shopping experience,” said Jeff Gennette, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc. "Looking forward we have strong continuity with Tony Spring transitioning to CEO in February and I am confident he and our leadership team will guide Macy’s, Inc. to sustainable long-term profitable sales growth in the future.”

Third Quarter Highlights

Comparisons are to the third quarter of 2022 unless noted otherwise. Comparisons to 2019 are provided, where appropriate, to benchmark performance. Please refer to note 2 within the financial tables regarding reclassifications of certain prior year metrics.

  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.15 and Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.21.
    • This compares to diluted earnings per share of $0.39 and Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.52 in the third quarter of 2022.
  • Net sales of $5 billion, down 7% versus the third quarter of 2022.
    • Brick-and-mortar sales decreased 7% versus the third quarter of 2022.
    • Digital sales decreased 7% versus the third quarter of 2022.
  • Comparable sales down 7.0% on an owned basis and down 6.3% on an owned-plus-licensed basis.
  • Highlights of the company's nameplates include:
    • Macy’s comparable sales were down 7.6% on an owned basis and down 6.7% on an owned-plus-licensed basis.
      • Approximately 41.3 million active customers shopped the Macy’s brand, on a trailing twelve-month basis.
      • Star Rewards program members made up approximately 72% of Macy's brand comparable owned-plus-licensed sales on a trailing twelve-month basis.
      • The Macy’s nameplate saw strength in beauty, particularly fragrances and prestige cosmetics, women’s career sportswear, men’s tailored and off-price with Backstage, while women’s casual sportswear, big ticket and handbags were challenged.
    • Bloomingdale’s comparable sales on an owned basis were down 3.2% and on an owned-plus-licensed basis were down 4.4%.
      • Approximately 4.0 million active customers shopped the Bloomingdale’s brand, on a trailing twelve-month basis.
      • The Bloomingdale’s nameplate saw strength across beauty, women’s contemporary apparel, shoes and the Bloomingdale’s outlet locations, while men’s, home and designer handbags were soft.
    • Bluemercury comparable sales were up 2.5% on an owned basis.
      • Approximately 683,000 active customers shopped the Bluemercury brand, on a trailing twelve-month basis.
      • The Bluemercury nameplate saw strength in skincare and color cosmetic categories.
  • Other revenue of $178 million, a $59 million decrease.
    • Represented 3.7% of net sales, down from 4.5% in the prior year period.
    • Performance driven largely by net credit card revenue which declined year-over-year due to the expected impact of higher delinquency rates and bad debt levels within the portfolio.
  • Inventory turnover, on a trailing twelve-month basis, was up 1% to 2022 and up 16% to 2019.
    • Merchandise inventories were down 6% year-over-year and down 17% to 2019, reflecting ongoing disciplined inventory management.
  • Gross margin rate for the quarter was 40.3%, up from 38.7% in the third quarter of 2022.
    • Merchandise margin improved 110 basis points, due to lower permanent markdowns within the Macy’s brand, as well as improved freight expense, partially offset by planned changes in Macy’s category mix.
    • As disclosed in the second quarter, merchandise margin also reflects the shift in timing of the company’s shortage recognition informed by a June physical inventory count in certain categories.
    • Delivery expense as a percent of net sales improved 50 basis points from the prior year reflecting improvements in merchandise allocation resulting in reductions in packages per order and distance traveled.
  • Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expense of $2.0 billion, a $48 million decrease.
    • SG&A expense as a percent of total revenue was 40.5%, 230 basis points higher compared to the third quarter of 2022, reflecting the decline in sales year-over-year.
    • SG&A expense dollars benefited from the company’s commitment to ongoing expense discipline. SG&A expense dollars were also favorable due to a roughly $10 million timing shift of certain previously estimated expenses from the third quarter to the fourth quarter.

The company does not provide reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP measures of comparable owned plus licensed sales change and adjusted diluted earnings per share to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures because the timing and amount of excluded items are unreasonably difficult to fully and accurately estimate. For the same reasons, the company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

For the 13 weeks ended October 28, 2023, income tax expense decreased $14 million versus the 13 weeks ended October 29, 2022 due to lower income before income taxes. Additionally, the effective tax rates for the 13 weeks ended October 28, 2023 and October 29, 2022 were 6.5% and 13.6%, respectively, and reflect a different effective tax rate as compared to the Company’s Federal income tax statutory rate of 21% primarily due to the recognition of return-to-provision adjustments associated with the filings of the Company’s 2022 and 2021 U.S. Federal income tax returns during each respective period.

   

For the 39 weeks ended October 28, 2023, income tax expense decreased $162 million versus the 39 weeks ended October 29, 2022 due to lower income before income taxes. Additionally, the effective tax rates for the 39 weeks ended October 28, 2023 and October 29, 2022 were 22.6% and 24.2%, respectively, and reflect a different effective tax rate as compared to the Company’s Federal income tax statutory rate of 21% primarily due to the impact of state and local taxes.

MACY’S, INC.

Important Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users of the company's financial information with additional useful information in evaluating operating performance. Management believes that providing supplemental changes in comparable sales on an owned-plus-licensed basis, which includes adjusting for the impact of comparable sales of departments licensed to third parties, assists in evaluating the company's ability to generate sales growth, whether through owned businesses or departments licensed to third parties, and in evaluating the impact of changes in the manner in which certain departments are operated. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) is a non-GAAP financial measure which the company believes provides meaningful information about its operational efficiency by excluding the impact of changes in tax law and structure, debt levels and capital investment. In addition, management believes that excluding certain items from EBITDA, net income and diluted earnings per share that are not associated with the company’s core operations and that may vary substantially in frequency and magnitude from period-to-period provides useful supplemental measures that assist in evaluating the company's ability to generate earnings and to more readily compare these metrics between past and future periods.

The company does not provide reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP measures of comparable owned plus licensed sales change and adjusted diluted earnings per share to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measures because the timing and amount of excluded items are unreasonably difficult to fully and accurately estimate. For the same reasons, the company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplementing, and not as an alternative or substitute for, the company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Certain of the items that may be excluded or included in non-GAAP financial measures may be significant items that could impact the company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows and should therefore be considered in assessing the company's actual and future financial condition and performance. Additionally, the amounts received by the company on account of sales of departments licensed to third parties are limited to commissions received on such sales. The methods used by the company to calculate its non-GAAP financial measures may differ significantly from methods used by other companies to compute similar measures. As a result, any non-GAAP financial measures presented herein may not be comparable to similar measures provided by other companies.

Notes:   (6)   

Represents the period-to-period percentage change in net sales from stores in operation for one full fiscal year for the 13 and 39 weeks ended October 28, 2023 and October 29, 2022. Such calculation includes all digital sales and excludes commissions from departments licensed to third parties. Stores impacted by a natural disaster or undergoing significant expansion or shrinkage remain in the comparable sales calculation unless the store, or material portion of the store, is closed for a significant period of time. Definitions and calculations of comparable sales may differ among companies in the retail industry.

  (7)   

Represents the impact of including the sales of departments licensed to third parties occurring in stores in operation throughout the year presented and the immediately preceding year and all online sales, including Marketplace sales, in the calculation of comparable sales. Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s license third parties to operate certain departments in their stores and online, including Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s digital Marketplace, and receive commissions from these third parties based on a percentage of their net sales, while Bluemercury does not participate in licensed or Marketplace businesses. In its financial statements prepared in conformity with GAAP, the company includes these commissions (rather than sales of the departments licensed to third parties and Marketplace) in its net sales. The company does not, however, include any amounts in respect of licensed department or Marketplace sales (or any commissions earned on such sales) in its comparable sales in accordance with GAAP (i.e., on an owned basis). The amounts of commissions earned on sales of departments licensed to third parties and from the digital Marketplace are not material to its net sales for the periods presented.

  Non-GAAP financial measures, excluding certain items below, are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measure as follows:
  • EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are reconciled to GAAP net income.
  • Adjusted net income is reconciled to GAAP net income.
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share is reconciled to GAAP diluted earnings per share.
