Steve Madden Announces Third Quarter 2016 Results

Steve Madden (SHOO), a leading designer and marketer of fashion footwear and accessories for women, men and children, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

For the Third Quarter 2016:

Net sales decreased 1.2% to $408.4 million compared to $413.5 million in the same period of 2015.

Gross margin expanded 180 basis points to 37.8% as compared to 36.0% in the same period last year.

Operating expenses as a percentage of sales were 23.5% compared to 21.6% of sales in the same period of 2015.

Operating income totaled $63.8 million, or 15.6% of net sales, compared with operating income of $66.3 million, or 16.0% of net sales, in the same period of 2015.

Net income was $43.8 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, compared to $42.9 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the prior year’s third quarter.

Edward Rosenfeld, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We were pleased with our third quarter results, which exceeded our expectations on both the top and bottom lines. Our core Steve Madden Women’s footwear business achieved outstanding growth during the quarter, as did our Dolce Vita line. In addition, we delivered strong gross margin expansion, as our on-trend merchandise assortment and disciplined inventory management resulted in higher initial mark-ups and reduced close-outs and markdown allowances. While the overall retail environment continues to be challenging and our wholesale partners remain cautious, our third quarter results enable us to narrow our guidance range for fiscal 2016 diluted EPS to the upper half of our previous range."

Third Quarter 2016 Segment Results

Net sales for the wholesale business were $346.6 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $357.0 million in the third quarter of 2015. Net sales for the wholesale business in the third quarter of 2015 included $14.9 million related to the one-time Madden Girl cold-weather capsule collection that was not repeated in 2016. Gross margin in the wholesale business increased to 33.9% compared to 32.1% in last year’s third quarter driven by improvement in the wholesale footwear segment, particularly the Steve Madden Women’s division.

Retail net sales in the third quarter were $61.8 million compared to $56.4 million in the third quarter of the prior year. Same store sales increased 1.3% for the third quarter. Retail gross margin decreased to 59.9% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 60.4% in the third quarter of 2015 due to the negative impact of a stronger US dollar on the Company’s international business.

During the third quarter, the Company opened four full price stores and three outlet locations, and closed one full price store. The Company ended the quarter with 186 company-operated retail locations, including four Internet stores.

The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2016 was 32.3% compared to 34.1% in the third quarter of the prior year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

During the third quarter of 2016, the Company repurchased 736,730 shares of the Company’s common stock for approximately $25.3 million, which includes shares acquired through the net settlement of employee stock awards.

As of September 30, 2016, cash, cash equivalents, and current and non-current marketable securities totaled $183.5 million.

Company Outlook

For fiscal year 2016, the Company continues to expect that net sales will increase 0% to 1% over net sales in 2015. Diluted EPS for fiscal year 2016 is now expected to be in the range of $1.98 to $2.03.
