NEW YORK, September 02, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. (NasdaqGS: GIII) today announced operating results for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, ended July 31, 2021.

Morris Goldfarb, G-III’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We delivered outstanding second quarter results that exceeded our guidance for both the top and bottom lines. Throughout the pandemic, we navigated through the challenges as our world class teams have remained focused on delivering positive results. We are encouraged by the strong consumer demand that we are seeing for apparel and accessories. Although some uncertainties remain, we feel good about our business, giving us the confidence to raise our guidance."

Mr. Goldfarb concluded, "The strength in our casual categories continues. We are also pleased to see increased demand for broader lifestyle categories, including dresses and career wear. G-III’s diversified product categories ranging across our globally recognized power brands, DKNY, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Karl Lagerfeld Paris, position us well to meet the increasing demand for our products."

Net sales for the second quarter ended July 31, 2021 increased 62.5% to $483.1 million from $297.2 million in the prior year’s quarter. The Company reported net income for the second quarter of $19.2 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $15.0 million, or $(0.31) per share, in the prior year’s quarter.

The Company completed the restructuring of its retail operations segment during fiscal 2021 and closed the Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass stores. Included in the Company’s results for the second quarter of last year are net losses from the Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass store operations of $25.6 million, or $(0.53) per diluted share. These results reflect direct store operations including impairment charges, but do not include any allocated corporate overhead charges, shared administrative expenses or shared distribution expenses. These operating results for Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass are presented solely to provide the historical operating results of the portion of the Company’s retail operations segment that was closed and are not intended to be used to develop expectations for future results of the Company or to indicate any future level of profitability of the Company.

Outlook

The Company today raised its guidance for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022. As the developments associated with the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be fluid, the Company’s fiscal year 2022 guidance contemplates the expected impact from the current supply chain conditions, including expected increased shipping costs and delays in receipt of goods. However, the guidance does not contemplate any reimposition of government-mandated store closures or other governmental restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which could have a material impact on our net sales, results of operations and supply chain during fiscal 2022. The Company’s fiscal 2022 results could differ materially from its current outlook as a result of the occurrence of any of these or other uncontemplated events.

For fiscal 2022, the Company expects net sales of approximately $2.70 billion and net income between $155.0 million and $165.0 million, or between $3.10 and $3.20 per diluted share. The Company previously forecasted net sales of approximately $2.57 billion and net income between $125.0 million and $135.0 million, or between $2.60 and $2.70 per diluted share. This compares to net sales of $2.06 billion and net income of $23.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, last year. Last fiscal year’s results included net sales of $91.8 million and a net loss of $(1.14) per diluted share associated with the Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass store operations.

For the third quarter of the current 2022 fiscal year, we expect net sales of approximately $1.00 billion and net income between $80.0 million and $90.0 million or $1.65 and $1.75 per diluted share. This compares to net sales of $826.6 million and net income of $63.2 million or $1.29 per diluted share in last year’s third quarter. The results for last year’s third quarter included net sales of $38.2 million and a net loss per diluted share of $(0.25) associated with the Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass store operations.

The tables above reflect the four wall operations of Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass stores, which are included in the consolidated operating results of the Company. As part of our retail restructuring, we closed these stores. The results for this portion of our retail operations segment include impairment charges, but do not include any allocated corporate overhead charges, shared administrative expenses or shared distribution center expenses. Corporate overhead charges, shared administrative expenses and shared distribution center expenses have been excluded as these expenses will continue to be incurred by the Company notwithstanding the restructuring of its retail operations segment. The Company continues to evaluate to what extent these expenses might be able to be reduced now that the restructuring has been completed. No interest expense has been allocated in calculating these operating results. The tax rates used assume the same overall effective rate that is reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements for fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2020. The tables above also reflect the results of operations of the Company’s four Calvin Klein Performance stores that were closed as part of the retail restructuring. The operating results of the four Calvin Klein Performance stores are also included in the consolidated operating results of the Company.
