Genesco Inc. Reports Fiscal 2021 Third Quarter Results

12/04/20
-Company Reports Return to Profitability-
 
-Sequential Improvement in Both Revenue and Gross Margin-

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 

Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Financial Summary

  • Net sales decreased 11% from last year to $479 million with stores open 95% of days
  • Highlighted by strong 62% e-commerce comp growth
  • Inventory down 22%
  • GAAP EPS from continuing operations was $0.52
  • Non-GAAP EPS from continuing operations was $0.851
  • Paid down $178 million of debt

Genesco Inc. (NYSE: GCO) today reported GAAP earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $0.52 for the three months ended October 31, 2020, compared to $1.31 per diluted share in the third quarter last year.  Adjusted for the excluded items in both periods, the Company reported third quarter earnings from continuing operations per diluted share of $0.85, compared to $1.33 per diluted share last year.

Mimi E. Vaughn, Genesco board chair, president and chief executive officer, said, "We successfully navigated with executional excellence through a back-to-school season like none other to deliver sales results that exceeded expectations and returned the Company to profitability. Journeys and Schuh performed well despite recent pressures, underscoring the strong strategic market positions and tremendous customer loyalty both have built over time, along with the ability to pivot and capitalize on the accelerated shift to online spending. At the same time, Johnston & Murphy's business has been slower to recover as the brand's competitive space faces stronger headwinds from the pandemic. Total net revenue decreased 11%, a meaningful improvement compared with our second quarter performance, as more stores were open and digital sales remained robust. With the decisive cost cutting actions we took early in the outbreak and one-time expense relief benefits, combined with better gross margins, solid profitability in our ecommerce channel and a lower tax rate, we dramatically improved our bottom line on a sequential basis with adjusted earnings per share coming in at $0.85.

"We believe we have the right assortments and are ready for this holiday season; that said, consumer demand has been very different this year due to the pandemic, which has caused us to take a conservative approach to our outlook. In November, we faced headwinds from the re-closure of stores in North America and the U.K., but most stores have since reopened at this time. For the Black Friday weekend, as expected, traffic was more subdued than usual, but for the month of November, sales were in line with our expectations with an even heavier mix of digital versus store sales. With the vast majority of the holiday season ahead of us, we believe we are well positioned to meet demand regardless of when and how the consumer decides to shop thanks to the technology investments we've made in our stores and ecommerce platforms.  It's a privilege to lead a team that is facing the challenges brought by COVID-19 head on, adapting continuously to the dynamic retail environment. This is bolstering my optimism that we will successfully weather this storm and emerge strong to take advantage of the many opportunities the pandemic has created."

Store Re-opening Update
As of December 4, 2020, the Company is operating in 97% of its locations, including approximately 1,150 Journeys, 170 Johnston & Murphy and 110 Schuh locations.

Third Quarter Review
Net sales for the third quarter of Fiscal 2021 decreased 11% to $479 million from $537 million in the third quarter of Fiscal 2020.  This sales decrease was driven by lower store comps reflecting decreased back-to-school sales, continued pressure at Johnston & Murphy and the impact from store closures during the quarter, partially offset by digital comp growth of 62%. Stores were open about 95% of days. Although the Company has disclosed comparable sales for the third quarter Fiscal 2021, it believes that overall sales is a more meaningful metric during this period due to the impact of COVID-19.

Overall sales were down 10% for Journeys, 3% at Schuh, and 45% at J&M while sales were up 91% at Licensed Brands due to the Togast acquisition in the fourth quarter last year.

Third quarter gross margin this year was 47.1%, down 210 basis points, compared with 49.2% last year. The decrease as a percentage of sales is due primarily to the mix of our businesses, increased markdowns and inventory reserves at Johnston & Murphy and higher shipping and warehouse expense in all of our retail divisions driven by the increase in penetration of e-commerce, partially offset by decreased markdowns at Journeys.

Adjusted selling and administrative expense for the third quarter this year decreased 10 basis points as a percentage of net sales.  On a dollar basis, expenses decreased 11% compared to the same period last year due primarily to reduced occupancy expense, driven by rent abatement agreements with landlords and savings from the government program in the U.K. to provide property tax relief, as well as reduced selling salaries and bonus expense.

Genesco's GAAP operating income for the third quarter was $8.2 million, or 1.7% of sales this year compared to $25.9 million, or 4.8% of sales last year.  Adjusted for the excluded items in both periods, operating income for the third quarter was $13.9 million this year compared to $26.7 million last year.  Adjusted operating margin was 2.9% of sales in the third quarter of Fiscal 2021 and 5.0% last year.

The effective tax rate for the quarter was -7.4% in Fiscal 2021 compared to 25.4% last year.  The adjusted tax rate, reflecting excluded items, was 4.4% in Fiscal 2021 compared to 26.2% last year.  The lower adjusted tax rate for this year primarily reflects the impact of the Company's performance in foreign jurisdictions for which no income tax benefit or expense is recorded in Fiscal 2021.  

GAAP earnings from continuing operations were $7.5 million in the third quarter of Fiscal 2021, compared to $19.0 million in the third quarter last year.  Adjusted for the excluded items in both periods, the third quarter earnings from continuing operations were $12.1 million, or $0.85 earnings per share in Fiscal 2021, compared to $19.4 million, or $1.33 earnings per share last year.       

Cash, Borrowings and Inventory
Cash and cash equivalents at October 31, 2020, were $115.1 million, compared with $55.8 million at November 2, 2019.  Cash decreased $184.1 million during the third quarter driven primarily by a use of cash in financing activities of $177.8 million to pay down debt and $11.0 million for capital expenditures and other activities, partially offset by operating activities generating $4.7 million.  Total debt at the end of the third quarter of Fiscal 2021 was $32.9 million compared with $79.5 million at the end of last year's third quarter. Total unused availability as of October 31, 2020 was $249.4 million.  Inventories decreased 22% in the third quarter of Fiscal 2021 on a year-over-year basis.  

Capital Expenditures and Store Activity
For the third quarter, capital expenditures were $8 million, related primarily to digital and omni-channel initiatives.  Depreciation and amortization was $11 million.  During the quarter, the Company opened seven new stores and closed seven stores.  The Company ended the quarter with 1,476 stores compared with 1,492 stores at the end of the third quarter last year, or a decrease of 1%.  Square footage was down 1% on a year-over-year basis.

Share Repurchases
The Company did not repurchase any shares during the third quarter of Fiscal 2021. 

Fiscal 2021 Outlook
Due to the continued uncertainty in the overall economy driven by COVID-19, the Company is not providing guidance at this time.
