Tapestry, Inc. (NYSE: TPR), a leading New York-based house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle brands, today reported results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended July 3, 2021.

Joanne Crevoiserat, Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc., said, "We delivered standout results in Fiscal 2021 – a transformational year for Tapestry. Through our Acceleration Program, we sharpened our focus on the consumer, leaned into digital and data and became a more agile organization. We reached customers in new ways and adapted to a rapidly changing environment, fueled by the power of our brands and passionate teams. Importantly, the traction of our strategy is clearly evidenced by our financial performance. We achieved a record annual operating margin as Tapestry, outperforming our expectations across Coach, Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman, while investing for our future. The year was capped by a successful fourth quarter, highlighted by revenue exceeding pre-pandemic levels led by Digital and China – two areas of significant opportunity."

"Building on this momentum and the increasing demand for our categories, we are focused on driving our next phase of growth. We are in a position of strength, supported by our clear strategy, compelling brands and differentiated platform. We believe these competitive advantages will enable us to win with consumers and capture market share. Our conviction is underscored by the plans announced today to return over $750 million to shareholders in Fiscal 2022 alone. Overall, we remain confident in our ability to accelerate growth and profitability across our portfolio long-term, enhancing value for all stakeholders."

Capital Deployment

Given the Company’s results, including its robust balance sheet and strong free cash flow generation, as well as its outlook for growth, the Board of Directors approved the reinstatement of the Company’s shareholder return programs.

The Board declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per common share payable on September 27, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 7, 2021, with an anticipated annual dividend rate of $1.00 per share. Over time, the Company intends to increase its dividend at a faster rate than earnings growth. Further, the Company intends to repurchase approximately $500 million worth of stock in Fiscal 2022 under its current authorization. Taken together, Tapestry plans to deploy over $750 million to shareholders in Fiscal 2022 through dividends and share repurchases, reflecting a balanced approach to shareholder returns. The Company and its Board of Directors will evaluate its dividend and share repurchase programs on a regular basis with a target of increasing the overall level of returns upon more visibility into a normalization in the external environment.

In addition, the Company intends to repay its July 2022 bonds, totaling $400 million, at the end of Fiscal 2022. This is consistent with the Company’s goal to reduce leverage through a combination of organic profit growth and debt repayment.

These actions underscore the Company’s conviction in its ability to drive long-term, sustainable growth and commitment to enhancing value for its stakeholders.

53rd Week Discussion

The results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ending July 3, 2021 included 14 and 53 weeks, respectively, while the same periods in Fiscal 2020 included 13 and 52 weeks, respectively. The additional week contributed $93 million to Tapestry’s revenue and $0.09 to earnings per diluted share in Fiscal 2021. For a complete reconciliation of revenue and operating income by segment, please refer to Financial Schedules 3 and 4 included herein.

The following financial information is presented inclusive of the 14th and 53rd week for the fiscal fourth quarter and full year 2021, respectively, unless otherwise noted.

Please refer to the financial schedules 3, 4, 5 and 6 included herein for a detailed reconciliation of the Company’s reported to non-GAAP results. These items included:

  • Impairment: $8 million of pre-tax benefits in the fourth quarter reflecting a reversal of raw material reserves, which was established in fiscal 2020 as a result of the projected impact of Covid-19. For the fiscal year, the Company recorded $38 million of pre-tax charges related mainly to impairment of store assets, primarily as a result of the continued impact of Covid-19.

  • Acceleration Program: $21 million of pre-tax charges in the fourth quarter and $90 million of pre-tax charges in the full year. These charges were primarily associated with professional fees incurred as a result of the development and execution of the Company’s comprehensive strategic initiatives, share-based compensation, as well as actions to streamline the Company's organization, which include severance. The Company continues to expect to incur total pre-tax charges of $205 to $220 million over the life of the Acceleration Program, including $30 to $45 million in remaining charges, primarily consisting of professional fees and share-based compensation.

  • CARES Act Tax Impact: $95 million of tax benefits recorded in the full year, with no benefit recorded in the fourth quarter. These credits were primarily related to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities Act, most notably the NOL carryback claim.

Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook

The Company’s Fiscal 2022 outlook is provided on a non-GAAP basis and excludes anticipated Acceleration Program charges as described in the "Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook - Non-GAAP Adjustments" section of this press release.

Based on current strong underlying business trends, the Company expects the following:

  • Revenue of approximately $6.4 billion, representing mid-teens growth versus the prior year on a 52-week, comparable basis, which would mark a record level of sales for the Company.

  • Net interest expense of approximately $65 million. The Company anticipates paying down its July 2022 bonds at the end of Fiscal 2022.

  • Tax rate of approximately 18.5% assuming a continuation of current tax laws.

  • Weighted average diluted share count in the area of 283 million, approximately even with prior year, with share repurchase activity expected to offset dilution.

  • Earnings per diluted share of $3.30 to $3.35, reflecting leverage to the bottom line.

Please note due to the ongoing dynamic nature of the Covid-19 crisis and lack of visibility, financial results could differ materially from the current outlook due to a number of external events, including the potential for more widespread resurgences of the pandemic globally and resulting pressure on store traffic trends, as well as further supply chain disruptions, including potential continued production and distribution delays as well as increased costs, not contemplated in the Company’s estimates.

(1) Adjustments within Gross profit are recorded within Cost of sales.

The Company reports information in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). The Company's management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP measures utilized by the Company may be unique to the Company, as they may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The financial information presented above, as well as gross margin, SG&A expense ratio, and operating margin, have been presented both including and excluding the effect of certain items related to the tax benefit the Company received under the CARES Act, the Acceleration Program and Impairment costs for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2021 and ERP Implementation, Organization-related & Integration Costs, Impairment costs and the Acceleration Program for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2020. The Company has also presented the impact of the 53rd week for fiscal year 2021 on revenue and operating income for the Company and each segment, and earnings per diluted share for the Company.

The Company operates on a global basis and reports financial results in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. Percentage increases/decreases in net sales for the Company and each segment have been presented both including and excluding currency fluctuation effects from translating foreign-denominated sales into U.S. dollars and compared to the same periods in the prior quarter and fiscal year. The Company calculates constant currency net sales results by translating current period net sales in local currency using the prior year period’s currency conversion rate.

Net sales changes for the Company and each segment are based on absolute sales dollar changes and are not presented in accordance with the Company’s comparable sales definition utilized historically due to the uncertain business environment resulting from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Management utilizes these non-GAAP and constant currency measures to conduct and evaluate its business during its regular review of operating results for the periods affected and to make decisions about Company resources and performance. The Company believes presenting these non-GAAP measures, which exclude items that are not comparable from period to period, is useful to investors and others in evaluating the Company’s ongoing operating and financial results in a manner that is consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance and understanding how such results compare with the Company’s historical performance. Additionally, the Company believes presenting these metrics on a constant currency basis will help investors and analysts to understand the effect of significant year-over-year foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on these performance measures and provide a framework to assess how business is performing and expected to perform excluding these effects.

In addition to these non-GAAP measures, the Company has provided comparisons to certain fiscal year 2019 results and trends, which the Company believes is useful to investors and others in evaluating the Company’s results, due to the significant impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Company’s operations and financial results, notably in the second half of fiscal year 2020. The Company has also included statements regarding the Company reaching peak operating income and operating margin as Tapestry, which refers to the period since Fiscal 2018, the year in which the Company established its current house of brands and changed its corporate name.

Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook - Non-GAAP Adjustments:

The Company is not able to provide a full reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP presented in this release and on the Company’s conference call because certain material items that impact these measures, such as the timing and exact amount of charges related to the Acceleration Program, which have not yet occurred or are out of the Company’s control. Accordingly, a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort. Where possible, the Company has identified the estimated impact of the items excluded from its Fiscal 2022 guidance.

This Fiscal 2022 non-GAAP guidance excludes $30 to $45 million in Acceleration Program charges, primarily consisting of professional fees and share-based compensation.
