Fossil Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: FOSL) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended July 2, 2022.

Second Quarter Summary

  • Second quarter worldwide net sales decreased to $371 million, down 10% on a reported basis and 5% in constant currency, reflecting declines across all three regions.
  • FOSSIL brand sales increased 7% in constant currency with double digit growth in traditional watches, jewelry and leathers partially offset by declines in smartwatches.
  • Direct to consumer net sales increased 5% in constant currency, led by 26% growth in store sales largely offset by decreased e-commerce sales.
  • Operating loss of $11 million compared to operating income of $14 million a year ago. Adjusted operating loss of $8 million compared to adjusted operating income of $21 million last year.
  • As of July 2, 2022, cash and cash equivalents of $167 million.

“During the second quarter, global operating conditions remained challenging,” said Kosta Kartsotis, Chairman and CEO. “We saw softening consumer demand during the quarter, reflecting ongoing inflationary pressure and continued pandemic-related restrictions in China. Additionally, the slowdown in consumer purchasing led to fewer inventory replenishment orders from our wholesale partners. While this macro backdrop impacted our core traditional watch category, our jewelry and leathers businesses grew at double digit rates in the quarter.”

“We believe consumer sentiment will continue to be pressured in the second half of the year and have adjusted our full year outlook to reflect moderating demand globally. Our teams are remaining agile while focusing on our core initiatives in digital and brand heat, and we are confident that our strategies will maximize shareholder value over the long term.”

Second Quarter 2022 Operating Results

Amounts referred to as “adjusted” as well as “constant currency” are non-GAAP financial measures.   Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their closest reported GAAP measures are included at the end of this press release.

  • Net sales totaled $371.2 million, a decrease of 10% on a reported basis and 5% in constant currency compared to $410.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.   Net sales, in constant currency, decreased 6% in Asia, 4% in the Americas and 3% in Europe versus the same quarter last year. Traditional watch sales declined 7% in constant currency in the second quarter while smartwatch sales decreased 18%, largely driven by the Americas as compared to the prior year period. The leathers and jewelry categories each grew 12% in constant currency during the second quarter. FOSSIL branded sales increased 7% in constant currency with growth in Asia and the Americas partially offset by a decrease in Europe. Direct to consumer net sales increased 5% in constant currency, led by 26% growth in store sales largely offset by decreased e-commerce sales. Total digital sales were down 21% in constant currency versus the prior year period and reflected 35% of our sales mix compared to 41% in the prior year period. Lower digital sales were primarily due to traffic shifts from owned e-commerce to brick and mortar distribution in Europe and the Americas and COVID driven lockdowns in mainland China.
  • Gross profit totaled $191.3 million compared to $221.8 million in the second quarter of 2021. Gross margin decreased 240 basis points to 51.6% versus 54.0% a year ago. The year-over-year decrease primarily reflects a non-recurrence of the prior year's tariff reductions, increased freight costs and an unfavorable currency impact. These costs were partially offset by favorable product mix and pricing increases and net foreign currency hedging contract gains in the current year as compared to net foreign currency hedging contract losses last year.
  • Operating expenses totaled $202.3 million compared to $207.5 million a year ago.   As a percentage of net sales, operating expenses were 54.5% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to 50.5% in the prior year second quarter. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $199.2 million compared to $200.5 million in the second quarter of 2021. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses were 53.7% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to 48.8% in the prior year second quarter, largely driven by increased compensation costs and investments in our digital initiatives, which were partially offset by a decline in marketing expenses and reduced store costs resulting from lower store count.
  • Operating income (loss) was a loss of $10.9 million compared to income of $14.3 million in the second quarter of 2021.   Operating margin was (2.9)% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to 3.5% in the prior year second quarter. Adjusted operating loss totaled $7.8 million compared to adjusted operating income of $21.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted operating margin was (2.1)% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to 5.2% in the prior year second quarter.
  • Interest expense decreased to $4.3 million compared to $6.5 million in the second quarter of 2021, primarily driven by reduced debt issuance costs amortization and a lower borrowing rate.
  • Other income (expense) was expense of $1.7 million compared to expense of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2021.  
  • Income (loss) before income taxes was $(16.9) million compared to $7.3 million in the second quarter of 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $(0.03) million, or (0.1)% of net sales in the second quarter of 2022 and $30.3 million, or 7.4% in the prior year quarter.
  • Net income (loss) totaled $(19.1) million with net loss per diluted share of $0.37, which compares to $(1.2) million and net loss per diluted share of $0.02 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net loss for the second quarter was $(16.6) million with adjusted loss per diluted share of $0.33 compared to adjusted net income of $4.3 million with adjusted income per diluted share of $0.08 in the prior year quarter.   During the second quarter of 2022, currencies unfavorably affected loss per diluted share by approximately $0.04.

Balance Sheet Summary

As of July 2, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $167 million. Inventories at the end of the second quarter of 2022 totaled $438 million, an increase of 24% versus a year ago. Total debt was $249 million.

Outlook

The Company is updating its guidance for full year 2022 to reflect a more cautious outlook on global markets, including a slowdown in consumer spending in our categories, the likelihood of ongoing COVID-19 related restrictions in mainland China, and the estimated impact of prevailing foreign currency translation.   

For fiscal year 2022, the Company now expects worldwide net sales declines of approximately 8% to 4% versus prior guidance of net sales growth of flat to 3%.   This updated guidance includes an estimated foreign currency negative impact of 450 basis points, which compares to our prior estimate of 350 basis points for the full year.  

The Company is reducing adjusted operating margin(1) guidance for the full year and now expects adjusted operating margin of 2% to 4% compared to prior guidance of 5.5% to 6.5%.

(1) A reconciliation of adjusted operating margin, 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 operating margin.

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 EBITDA, Adjusted operating income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted operating income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are non-GAAP financial measures.   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, restructuring expense and unamortized debt issuance costs included in loss on extinguishment of debt minus interest income. We define Adjusted operating income (loss) as operating income (loss) before impairment expense and restructuring expense. We define Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share as net income (loss) attributable to Fossil Group, Inc. and diluted earnings (loss) per share, respectively, before impairment expense, restructuring expense and unamortized debt issuance costs included in loss on extinguishment of debt. We have included Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted operating income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share 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 Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted operating income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report.   Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted operating income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share are not intended to be used as alternatives to any measure of our performance in accordance with GAAP.  

The following tables reconcile Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is income (loss) before income taxes.   Certain line items presented in the tables below, when aggregated, may not foot due to rounding.
