Joanne Crevoiserat, Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc., said, "Our third quarter results significantly outpaced expectations, underscoring the power of the Acceleration Program and enthusiasm for our brands. Through a sharpened focus on the consumer, we fueled new customer acquisition at Coach, Kate Spade, and Stuart Weitzman and delivered robust sales growth led by Digital and China. Importantly, for the third consecutive quarter, we achieved operating income gains – compared to both FY20 and FY19 – supported by a continued reduction in promotional activity, higher AUR, and disciplined expense management. This performance is a testament to our talented teams around the world, whose creativity, agility, and resilience have enabled us to successfully navigate a challenging backdrop and deliver for our customers, while positioning Tapestry to emerge from the pandemic stronger."

Ms. Crevoiserat continued, "Building on this momentum, we are increasingly optimistic about our ability to generate sustainable top and bottom-line growth. Looking forward, while the environment remains volatile, we see encouraging signs of recovery as vaccination efforts progress, resulting in increased consumer confidence, strong demand for our categories, and improving in-store traffic trends. In this context, we remain focused on driving brand relevance and customer engagement through product innovation and compelling marketing, supported by data-driven insights and a digital-first mindset. We will also continue to lean into our competitive advantages, including our globally diversified, direct-to-consumer model, and distort investments to high-growth opportunities. We are confident that our clear, consumer-centric strategy, powerful brands, and differentiated, scalable platform uniquely position us to capture market share at higher levels of profitability."

Non-GAAP Reconciliation

During the fiscal third quarter of 2021, the Company recorded the following charges on a reported basis:

  • Acceleration Program: $20 million of pre-tax charges primarily associated with professional fees incurred as a result of the development and execution of the Company’s comprehensive strategic initiatives, as well as actions to streamline the Company's organization, which includes severance. The Company now expects to incur total charges of $205 to $220 million over the life of the Acceleration Program, including $50 to $65 million in remaining charges. The majority of these future costs are estimated to be cash.

Taken together, these items decreased the Company’s net income and earnings per diluted share by $53 million and $0.19, respectively. Please refer to the financial tables included herein for a detailed reconciliation of the Company’s reported to non-GAAP results.

Fiscal Year 2021 Outlook

Due to the dynamic nature of the Covid-19 crisis and lack of visibility, the Company is not providing detailed guidance for fiscal 2021. However, given Tapestry’s better-than-anticipated results year-to-date, and assuming a continued recovery emerging from the pandemic, the Company now expects revenue for the fiscal year to increase at a mid-teens rate compared to prior year on both a 52 and 53-week basis. This outlook now includes the expectation for fiscal year 2021 operating income and earnings per diluted to share to increase versus fiscal year 2019 on a 52 and 53-week basis.

The Company also notes that fiscal 2021 includes a 53rd week in its fourth fiscal quarter.

(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 Acceleration Program and Impairment costs for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 and 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 first nine months of fiscal year 2021 and ERP Implementation, Organization-related & Integration Costs, and Impairment costs for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal year 2020.

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.
