Genesco Inc. (NYSE: GCO) today reported GAAP earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $6.20 for the three months ended January 30, 2021, compared to earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $2.49 in the fourth quarter last year.  Adjusted for the Excluded Items in both periods, the Company reported fourth quarter earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $2.76, compared to earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $3.09 last year.

GAAP loss from continuing operations per diluted share was $(3.94) for the year ended January 30, 2021, compared to earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $3.94 for the year ended February 1, 2020.  Adjusted for the Excluded Items in both periods, the Company reported Fiscal 2021 loss from continuing operations per diluted share of $(1.18), compared to earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $4.58 for Fiscal 2020.

Mimi E. Vaughn, Genesco board chair, president and chief executive officer, said, "We concluded an incredibly challenging year with a fourth quarter that exceeded our expectations across the board highlighted by strength at Journeys. Our improving performance throughout Fiscal 2021 under difficult circumstances reflects the strength of our retail concepts prior to COVID-19 and our success capitalizing on the opportunities that emerged during the pandemic to fortify the leadership positions of our teen and young adult footwear businesses.  The numerous digital investments we've made over the past several years allowed us to take advantage of the accelerated shift to online spending to achieve record digital revenue of nearly $450 million, an increase of almost 75% year-over-year, while also fueling record profitability for this channel.

"While we expect the environment to remain fluid in the near-term, we are optimistic about our ability to solidify our recent digital gains and further expand our market share. The events of the past year have provided us the opportunity to transform our business at a faster pace.  We believe this, along with a solid balance sheet, have put us in a strong position to emerge from the pandemic, invest for growth, and build great value for our shareholders."

Thomas A. George, Genesco interim chief financial officer, commented, "We were pleased with our fourth quarter performance, as all facets of operating results exceeded our internal expectations. Building upon our strong return to profitability in the third quarter, sequential improvements compared to the prior quarters in revenue, gross margin, and operating expenses, inclusive of rent abatements, drove operating income above last year's level. In terms of earnings, we far exceeded our initial expectations; however, a higher tax rate offset the higher operating income, resulting in adjusted EPS of $2.76 compared to $3.09 last year."

Store Re-Opening Update
As of March 11, 2021, the Company is operating in 90% of its locations, including approximately 1,145 Journeys, 160 Johnston & Murphy and 2 Schuh locations.

Fourth Quarter Review
Net sales for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021 decreased 6% to $637 million from $678 million in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2020. This sales decrease was driven by continued pressure at Johnston & Murphy and the impact from store closures during the quarter, partially offset by digital comp growth of 55%. Stores were open about 90% of possible days. Although the Company has disclosed comparable sales for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021, it is providing both overall and comp sales by business to give better insight into performance.

Overall sales were flat at Journeys, down 13% at Schuh, and down 42% at Johnston & Murphy while sales were up 84% at Licensed Brands due to the Togast acquisition in the fourth quarter last year.

Fourth quarter gross margin this year was 45.8%, down 110 basis points, compared with 46.9% last year. The decrease as a percentage of sales is due primarily to higher shipping and warehouse expense in all of our retail divisions driven by the increase in penetration of e-commerce, increased closeouts at Johnston & Murphy wholesale and higher markdowns at Johnston & Murphy retail and to the mix of our businesses, partially offset by decreased markdowns at Journeys.

Adjusted selling and administrative expense for the fourth quarter this year decreased 240 basis points as a percentage of sales.  On a dollar basis, expenses decreased 12% compared to the same period last year due primarily to reduced occupancy expense, driven by rent abatement agreements with landlords and government relief programs, as well as reduced selling salaries, partially offset by increased marketing expenses.

Genesco's GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter was $62.6 million, or 9.8% of sales this year, compared with $45.3 million, or 6.7% of sales last year.  Adjusted for the Excluded Items in both periods, operating income for the fourth quarter was $64.7 million this year compared to $59.3 million last year. Adjusted operating margin was 10.2% of sales in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021 and 8.8% last year. 

The effective tax rate for the quarter was -45.6% in Fiscal 2021 compared to 21.0% last year.  The adjusted tax rate, reflecting Excluded Items, was 37.5% in Fiscal 2021 compared to 25.3% last year.  The higher adjusted tax rate for this year reflects the reversal of previously accrued tax benefits under the CARES Act due to positive earnings in the fourth quarter this year.  The divergence between the effective tax rate and the adjusted tax rate is due to income tax initiatives under the CARES Act and other provisions that are excluded from the adjusted tax rate.

GAAP earnings from continuing operations were $90.0 million in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021, compared to $35.5 million in the fourth quarter last year.  Adjusted for the Excluded Items in both periods, fourth quarter earnings from continuing operations were $40.0 million, or $2.76 per share, in Fiscal 2021, compared to $44.1 million, or $3.09 per share, last year.      

Full Year Review
Net sales for Fiscal 2021 decreased 19% to $1.8 billion from $2.2 billion in Fiscal 2020. This sales decrease was driven by the impact from store closures during the year, lower store comps and sales pressure at Johnston & Murphy, partially offset by digital comp growth of 74%.  Stores were open about 76% of possible days.  The Company has not disclosed comparable sales for Fiscal 2021 as it believes that overall sales is a more meaningful metric during this period due to the impact of COVID-19.

Overall sales were down 16% at Journeys, 18% at Schuh, and 49% at Johnston & Murphy while sales were up 61% at Licensed Brands due to the Togast acquisition in the fourth quarter last year.

Fiscal 2021 gross margin was 45.0%, down 340 basis points, compared with 48.4% last year. The decrease as a percentage of sales is due primarily to higher shipping and warehouse expense in all of our retail divisions driven by the increase in penetration of e-commerce, reduced margins at Johnston & Murphy as a result of increased inventory reserves, increased markdowns at Johnston & Murphy retail and closeouts at Johnston & Murphy wholesale, the mix of our businesses and increased promotional activity at Schuh, partially offset by decreased markdowns at Journeys.

Adjusted selling and administrative expense as a percentage of sales for the year was 45.7%, up 180 basis points, compared to 43.9% last year.  On a dollar basis, expenses decreased 15% compared to the same period last year due primarily to reduced occupancy expense, driven by rent abatement agreements with landlords and government relief programs, as well as reduced selling salaries and bonus and travel expenses, partially offset by increased marketing expenses.

Genesco's GAAP operating loss for Fiscal 2021 was $(107.2) million, or (6.0)% of sales, compared with operating income of $83.3 million, or 3.8% of sales last year.  Adjusted for the Excluded Items in both periods, the operating loss was $(11.8) million this year compared to operating income of $99.2 million last year.  Adjusted operating margin was (0.7)% of sales in Fiscal 2021 and 4.5% of sales last year. 

The effective tax rate was 49.8% in Fiscal 2021 compared to 25.1% last year.  The adjusted tax rate, reflecting Excluded Items, was -3.3% in Fiscal 2021 compared to 26.9% last year.  The lower adjusted tax rate for this year reflects the impact of the Company's performance in foreign jurisdictions for which no income tax benefit or expense is recorded in Fiscal 2021, partially offset by taxes accrued for the U.S. jurisdiction.  The divergence between the effective tax rate and the adjusted tax rate is due to income tax initiatives under the CARES Act and other provisions that are excluded from the adjusted tax rate.

GAAP loss from continuing operations was $(56.0) million in Fiscal 2021, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $61.8 million in Fiscal 2020.  Adjusted for the Excluded Items in both periods, the loss from continuing operations was $(16.7) million, or $(1.18) per share, in Fiscal 2021, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $71.8 million, or $4.58 per share, last year.

Cash, Borrowings and Inventory
Cash and cash equivalents at January 30, 2021, were $215.1 million, compared with $81.4 million at February 1, 2020.  Total debt at the end of the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021 was $33.0 million compared with $14.4 million at the end of last year's fourth quarter.  Inventories decreased 20% in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021 on a year-over-year basis.   

Capital Expenditures and Store Activity
For the fourth quarter, capital expenditures were $6 million, related primarily to digital and omnichannel initiatives.  Depreciation and amortization was $11 million.  During the quarter, the Company closed 16 stores.  The Company ended the quarter with 1,460 stores compared with 1,480 stores at the end of the fourth quarter last year, or a decrease of 1%.  Square footage was down 2% on a year-over-year basis.

Share Repurchases
The Company did not repurchase any shares during the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021.  The Company currently has $90 million remaining on the $100 million board authorization from September 2019.

Fiscal 2022 Outlook
Due to the continued uncertainty in the overall economy driven by COVID-19, the Company is not providing guidance at this time.

Safe Harbor Statement
This release contains forward-looking statements, including those regarding the performance outlook for the Company and all other statements not addressing solely historical facts or present conditions.  Forward- looking statements are usually identified by or are associated with such words as "intend," "expect," "believe," "anticipate," "optimistic" and similar terminology.  Actual results could vary materially from the expectations reflected in these statements.  A number of factors could cause differences.  These include adjustments to projections reflected in forward-looking statements, including those resulting from the effects of COVID-19 on the Company's business, including COVID-19 case spikes in locations in which the Company operates, additional stores closures due to COVID-19, weakness in store and shopping mall traffic, restrictions on operations imposed by government entities and/or landlords, changes in public safety and health requirements, and limitations on the Company's ability to adequately staff and operate stores.  Differences from expectations could also result from stores closures and effects on the business as a result of civil disturbances; the level and timing of promotional activity necessary to maintain inventories at appropriate levels; the imposition of tariffs on product imported by the Company or its vendors as well as the ability and costs to move production of products in response to tariffs; the Company's ability to obtain from suppliers products that are in-demand on a timely basis and effectively manage disruptions in product supply or distribution, including disruptions as a result of COVID-19; unfavorable trends in fuel costs, foreign exchange rates, foreign labor and material costs, and other factors affecting the cost of products; the effects of the British decision to exit the European Union and other sources of market weakness in the U.K. and Republic of Ireland; the effectiveness of the Company's omnichannel initiatives; costs associated with changes in minimum wage and overtime requirements; wage pressure in the U.S. and the U.K.; weakness in the consumer economy and retail industry; competition and fashion trends in the Company's markets; risks related to the potential for terrorist events; risks related to public health and safety events; changes in buying patterns by significant wholesale customers; retained liabilities associated with divestitures of businesses including potential liabilities under leases as the prior tenant or as a guarantor; and changes in the timing of holidays or in the onset of seasonal weather affecting period-to-period sales comparisons.  Additional factors that could cause differences from expectations include the ability to renew leases in existing stores and control or lower occupancy costs, and to conduct required remodeling or refurbishment on schedule and at expected expense levels; the Company's ability to realize anticipated cost savings, including rent savings; the Company's ability to achieve expected digital gains and gain market share; deterioration in the performance of individual businesses or of the Company's market value relative to its book value, resulting in impairments of fixed assets, operating lease right of use assets or intangible assets or other adverse financial consequences and the timing and amount of such impairments or other consequences; unexpected changes to the market for the Company's shares or for the retail sector in general; costs and reputational harm as a result of disruptions in the Company's business or information technology systems either by security breaches and incidents or by potential problems associated with the implementation of new or upgraded systems; the Company's ability to realize any anticipated tax benefits; and the cost and outcome of litigation, investigations and environmental matters involving the Company.  Additional factors are cited in the "Risk Factors," "Legal Proceedings" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of, and elsewhere in, the Company's SEC filings, copies of which may be obtained from the SEC website, www.sec.gov, or by contacting the investor relations department of Genesco via the Company's website, www.genesco.com.  Many of the factors that will determine the outcome of the subject matter of this release are beyond Genesco's ability to control or predict.  Genesco undertakes no obligation to release publicly the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.  Forward-looking statements reflect the expectations of the Company at the time they are made.  The Company disclaims any obligation to update such statements.
