Crocs, Inc. Reports Quarterly Revenues of Over $1 Billion, Up 6% Over Last Year

 Third Quarter Operating Margin of 26% and Adjusted Operating Margin of 28%

Diluted EPS Up 5.5% to $2.87 and Adjusted Diluted EPS Up 9.4% to $3.25

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Nov. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CROX), a world leader in innovative casual footwear for women, men, and children, today announced its third quarter 2023 financial results.

"We delivered a strong third quarter, exceeding the high-end of our guidance, led by double-digit revenue growth in our Crocs Brand supported by healthy full-price selling and industry-leading operating margins," said Andrew Rees, Chief Executive Officer. "Both our brands gained share during the back-to-school season. During the quarter, we took decisive action around HEYDUDE to accelerate our marketplace management strategy to ensure long-term brand health. As such, we are adjusting our full-year outlook to reflect this shift."

Amounts referred to as "Adjusted" or "Non-GAAP" are Non-GAAP measures and include adjustments that are described under the heading "Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures." A reconciliation of these amounts to their GAAP counterparts are contained in the schedules below.

Third Quarter 2023 Highlights

  • Consolidated revenues of $1,045.7 million increased 6.2%, or 5.8% on a constant currency basis, as compared to 2022.

  • Crocs Brand revenues of $798.8 million increased 11.6%, or 11.1% on a constant currency basis, as compared to 2022.

  • Crocs Brand growth was fueled by Asia revenue growth of 26.5%, or 28.6% on a constant currency basis, and North America direct-to-consumer ("DTC") comparable sales growth of 10.2%, as compared to 2022.

  • HEYDUDE Brand DTC revenues grew 14.6% as compared to 2022.

  • Operating margin was 26.2% and adjusted operating margin was 28.3%.

  • Diluted earnings per share increased 5.5% to $2.87 as compared to the same period last year. Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 9.4% to $3.25.

  • During the quarter $90.0 million of debt was repaid, and we reduced gross leverage to 1.7x. We resumed our share repurchase program during the quarter, repurchasing approximately 1.4 million shares for $150.0 million.

Third Quarter 2023 Operating Results

  • Revenues were $1,045.7 million, an increase of 6.2% from the same period last year, or 5.8% on a constant currency basis. DTC revenues grew 17.8%, or 17.7% on a constant currency basis. Wholesale revenues fell 3.6% compared to 2022, or down 4.3% on a constant currency basis.

  • Gross margin was 55.6% compared to 54.9% in the prior year. Adjusted gross margin improved 230 basis points to 57.4% compared to 55.1% in the same period last year.

  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses ("SG&A") of $307.8 million increased from $277.2 million in the same period last year, and SG&A as a percent of revenues rose to 29.4% from 28.1% in prior year. Adjusted SG&A increased to 29.1% of revenues versus 27.2% for the same period last year.

  • Income from operations increased 3.7% to $273.9 million and operating margin fell slightly to 26.2%, compared to 26.8% for the same period last year. Adjusted income from operations rose 7.8% to $295.9 million and adjusted operating margin improved 40 basis points to 28.3%.

  • Diluted earnings per share increased 5.5% to $2.87, as compared to $2.72 for the same period last year. Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 9.4% to $3.25 compared to 2022.

Third Quarter 2023 Brand Summary

  • Crocs Brand: Revenues increased 11.6%, or 11.1% on a constant currency basis, to $798.8 million. DTC comparable sales increased 15.3%. Wholesale revenues increased 4.5%, or 3.6% on a constant currency basis.

    • North America revenues of $480.7 million increased 8.0%, or 8.2% on a constant currency basis.

    • Asia Pacific revenues of $175.2 million increased 26.5%, or 28.6% on a constant currency basis.

    • Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America ("EMEALA") revenues of $142.8 million increased 8.3%, or 2.7% on a constant currency basis.

  • HEYDUDE Brand: Revenues during the third quarter decreased 8.3% to $246.9 million. DTC revenues increased 14.6% to $100.4 million. Wholesale revenues declined 19.4% to $146.5 million following prior year pipeline fill and as our wholesale partners were more cautious on at-once orders.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

  • Cash and cash equivalents were $127.3 million as of September 30, 2023, compared to $191.6 million as of December 31, 2022.

  • Inventories decreased to $390.2 million as of September 30, 2023, compared to $471.6 million as of December 31, 2022 and $513.7 million as of September 30, 2022.

  • Capital expenditures during the nine months ended September 30, 2023 were $86.4 million, compared to $89.6 million for the same period last year, reflecting continued investments in our distribution centers and expansion of our corporate facilities to support growth.

  • Borrowings were $1,938.7 million as of September 30, 2023 compared to $2,322.4 million as of December 31, 2022, as we repaid $389.1 million of debt year to date. Our liquidity position remains strong with $127.3 million in cash and cash equivalents and $563.7 million in available borrowing capacity as of September 30, 2023.

Share Repurchase Activity

During the third quarter we resumed our share repurchase program, repurchasing $150.0 million or approximately 1.4 million shares of our common stock at an average price of $107.85 per share. Following these repurchases, $900.0 million of share repurchase authorization remained available for future repurchases. Our capital allocation priorities remain debt paydown and  repurchasing shares as we approach our long-term net leverage target of 1.0x to 1.5x.

Financial Outlook

Fourth Quarter 2023

With respect to the fourth quarter of 2023, we expect:

  • Revenues to decline approximately 1% to 4% compared to fourth quarter 2022, resulting in revenues of approximately $903 million to $938 million at currency rates as of the end of the last reported period.

  • Adjusted operating margin of approximately 21.0%.

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $2.05 to $2.35.

Full Year 2023

With respect to 2023, we expect:

  • Consolidated revenue growth to now be approximately 10% to 11% compared to 2022, resulting in revenues of approximately $3,905 to $3,940 million at currency rates as of the end of the last reported period.

    • Revenues for the Crocs Brand to grow approximately 12% to 13% on a reported basis.

    • Revenues for the HEYDUDE Brand to now grow approximately 4% to 6% on a reported basis, implying a decline of approximately 4% to 6% including the period prior to the HEYDUDE acquisition.

  • Adjusted operating margin to now be approximately 27.0%.

  • Non-GAAP adjustments of approximately $60 million primarily related to investments in our distribution centers to support growth and an anticipated non-cash impairment for our corporate headquarters. We expect these adjustments to be fairly balanced across cost of sales and SG&A.

  • Combined GAAP tax rate to be approximately 23% and non-GAAP effective tax rate of approximately 20%.

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share to now be between $11.55 and $11.85. Adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance does not assume any impact from potential future share repurchases.

  • Capital expenditures to now be approximately $125 to $135 million, primarily related to the expansion of our distribution capabilities including our new HEYDUDE distribution center in Las Vegas, implementation of technology systems for HEYDUDE, and expansion of our corporate facilities to support growth.

CROCS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), we present "Non-GAAP cost of sales," "Non-GAAP gross profit," "Non-GAAP gross margin," "Non-GAAP gross margin by brand," "Non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expenses," "Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses as a percent of revenues," "Non-GAAP income from operations," "Non-GAAP operating margin," "Non-GAAP income before income taxes," "Non-GAAP income tax expense (benefit)," "Non-GAAP effective tax rate," "Non-GAAP net income," and "Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per common share," which are non-GAAP financial measures. We also present future period guidance for "Non-GAAP operating margin," "Non-GAAP operating income," "Non-GAAP effective tax rate," and "Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share." Non-GAAP results exclude the impact of items that management believes affect the comparability or underlying business trends in our condensed consolidated financial statements in the periods presented.

We also present certain information related to our current period results of operations through "constant currency," which is a non-GAAP financial measure and should be viewed as a supplement to our results of operations and presentation of reportable segments under GAAP. Constant currency represents current period results that have been retranslated using exchange rates used in the prior year comparative period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Management uses non-GAAP results to assist in comparing business trends from period to period on a consistent basis in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts, and investors concerning our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, in addition to corresponding GAAP measures, are useful to investors and other users of our condensed consolidated financial statements as an additional tool for evaluating operating performance and trends. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, management believes it is helpful to evaluate our results excluding the impacts of various adjustments relating to special or non-recurring items. Investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, and subsequently in the fourth quarter of 2021, we made changes to our international legal structure, including an intra-entity transfer of certain intellectual property rights, primarily to align with current and future international operations. The transfers resulted in a step-up in the tax basis of intellectual property rights and correlated increases in foreign deferred tax assets based on the fair value of the transferred intellectual property rights. This adjustment represents the current period impact of these transfers. The prior year adjustment also includes the release of the valuation allowance as a result of a tax law change.

Non-GAAP adjustments, primarily related to investments to support growth and amortization of intellectual property (1)(2)

$1.18

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share

$11.55 to $11.85



(1)

For the full year 2023, we expect to incur approximately $60 million in costs primarily related to investments to support growth and to be fairly balanced across COGS and SG&A.

(2)

In the fourth quarter of 2020, and subsequently in the fourth quarter of 2021, we made changes to our international legal structure, including an intra-entity transfer of certain intellectual property rights, primarily to align with current and future international operations. This adjustment represents the amortization of the deferred tax asset related to these intellectual property rights in this period.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Guidance

Our forward-looking guidance for consolidated "adjusted operating margin," and "adjusted diluted earnings per share" represents non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or otherwise have been adjusted for special items from our U.S. GAAP financial statements. We consider these items to be necessary adjustments for purposes of evaluating our ongoing business performance and are often considered non-recurring. Such adjustments are subjective and involve significant management judgment.

While we are able to estimate full year non-GAAP adjustments, we are unable to reconcile forward-looking adjusted measures to their nearest U.S. GAAP measure quarter-by-quarter because we are unable to predict the timing of these adjustments with a reasonable degree of certainty. By their very nature, special and other non-core items are difficult to anticipate with precision because they are generally associated with unexpected and unplanned events that impact our company and its financial results. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures for the guidance related to the fourth quarter of 2023.

Comparable store status, as included in the DTC comparable sales figures above, is determined on a monthly basis. Comparable store sales include the revenues of stores that have been in operation for more than twelve months. Stores in which selling square footage has changed more than 15% as a result of a remodel, expansion, or reduction are excluded until the thirteenth month in which they have comparable prior year sales. Temporarily closed stores are excluded from the comparable store sales calculation during the month of closure and in the same month in the following year. Location closures in excess of three months are excluded until the thirteenth month post re-opening. E-commerce comparable revenues are based on same site sales period over period. E-commerce sites that are temporarily offline or unable to transact or fulfill orders ("site disruption") are excluded from the comparable sales calculation during the month of site disruption and in the same month in the following year. E-commerce site disruptions in excess of three months are excluded until the thirteenth month after the site has re-opened.

(3)

We acquired HEYDUDE on February 17, 2022 and, as a result, added the HEYDUDE Brand as a new operating segment. As such, in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we did not disclose DTC comparable sales for the HEYDUDE Brand.
