Fossil Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: FOSL) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended July 3, 2021.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2021 Summary

  • Worldwide net sales of $411 million increased 59%, or 51% on a constant currency basis. Net sales performance was strong in all three regions, led by a 64% increase in the Americas on a constant currency basis and continued momentum in mainland China, which recorded net sales growth of 38% on a constant currency basis.
  • Net sales through all digital channels grew 10% and 82%, on a constant currency basis, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively, and represented 41% of worldwide net sales.
  • Operating income of $14 million compared to an operating loss of $37 million a year ago.
  • Total liquidity of $294 million, consisting of cash and cash equivalents of $252 million and $42 million of borrowing availability, and total debt of $178 million, each as of July 3, 2021.

“Our strong second quarter performance reflects solid operational execution across all channels and regions in a challenging consumer environment,” said Kosta Kartsotis, Chairman and CEO. “We are encouraged by improving consumer demand in our largest markets and our core category of traditional watches. Based on our strong year-to-date performance and strengthening demand signals going into the second half of the year, we are raising our 2021 outlook. Looking ahead we are pleased that our digital initiatives, brand-building efforts and ongoing transformation activities are positioning the business to deliver sustained sales and earnings growth over the long-term.”

Second Quarter 2021 Operating Results

Amounts referred to as “Adjusted” as well as “constant currency” are Non-GAAP measures. Reconciliations of these Non-GAAP measures to their closest GAAP reported measure is included at the end of this press release.

  • Net sales totaled $410.9 million, an increase of 59% on a reported basis and 51% in constant currency compared to $259.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. Net sales, in constant currency, grew in all regions with the Americas at 64%, Europe at 44% and Asia at 41% versus the same quarter last year. Additionally, total digital sales grew 10%, in constant currency, in the second quarter and represented 41% of worldwide net sales.
  • Gross profit totaled $221.8 million compared to $140.6 million in the second quarter of 2020. Gross margin decreased 30 basis points to 54.0% versus 54.3% a year ago. The year-over-year decrease primarily reflects a non-recurrence of the prior year’s reduced minimum licensor royalty costs and increased Americas regional sales mix. These decreases were largely offset by improved product and channel mix, a favorable currency impact and reduced tariffs.
  • Operating expenses totaled $207.5 million compared to $177.4 million a year ago. As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses were 50.5% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to 68.5% in the prior year second quarter. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $200.5 million compared to $163.5 million in the second quarter of 2020. The year-over-year increase reflects higher marketing and compensation costs, primarily due to lower levels of expense during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the second quarter of 2020. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses were 48.8% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to 63.1% in the prior year second quarter.
  • Operating income increased to $14.3 million compared to an operating loss of $36.8 million in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted operating income totaled $21.3 million compared to an adjusted operating loss of $22.9 million in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Net loss totaled $1.2 million, compared to a net loss of $22.5 million in the second quarter of 2020, as operating income of $14.3 million was more than offset by the provision for income taxes and interest expense. On a per share basis, net loss was $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.44 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2020. Per share data included restructuring charges of $0.09 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2021 and $0.16 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2020. During the second quarter of 2021, currencies favorably affected income per diluted share by approximately $0.13.

Balance Sheet Summary

As of July 3, 2021, the Company had total liquidity of $294 million, comprised of $252 million of cash and cash equivalents and $42 million of availability under its revolving credit facility. Total debt was $178 million, including $129 million under its term credit agreement. Inventories at the end of the second quarter of 2021 totaled $352 million, a decrease of 6% versus a year ago.

Outlook

For fiscal year 2021, the Company is raising its outlook for worldwide net sales growth to approximately 14% to 17% and full year Adjusted EBITDA(1) margin guidance to 6% to 8%. For the 13-week quarter ending October 2, 2021, worldwide net sales are expected to increase in the range of 5% to 10% compared to the 13-week quarter ended October 3, 2020.

(1) A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to a corresponding GAAP measure is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability and low visibility of certain income and expense items that are excluded in calculating Adjusted EBITDA.

Constant Currency Financial Information

The following table presents the Company’s business segment and product net sales on a constant currency basis which are non-GAAP financial measures. To calculate net sales on a constant currency basis, net sales for the current fiscal year period for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average rates during the comparable period of the prior fiscal year. The Company presents constant currency information to provide investors with a basis to evaluate how its underlying business performed excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. The constant currency financial information presented herein should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. We define Adjusted operating income (loss) as operating income (loss) before impairment expense and restructuring expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA as our net income (loss) before the impact of income tax expense (benefit), plus interest expense, amortization and depreciation, impairment expense, other non-cash charges, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring expense minus interest income. We have included Adjusted operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA herein because they are widely used by investors for valuation and for comparing our financial performance with the performance of our competitors. We also use both non-GAAP financial measures to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations. Our presentation of Adjusting operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report. Adjusted operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be used as alternatives to any measure of our performance in accordance with GAAP.

The following table reconciles Adjusted operating income (loss) to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is operating income (loss).
