Skechers Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Financial Results

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SKECHERS U.S.A., Inc. (“Skechers” or the “Company”) (NYSE:SKX), a global footwear leader, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Sales of $1.32 billion, a decrease of 0.5% year-over-year
  • Domestic Wholesale sales grew 1.2% year-over-year
  • China sales grew 29.7% year-over-year
  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.34, including a one-time tax benefit of $0.10 per share
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $1.37 billion at quarter-end

“For Skechers, 2020 began with positive momentum following a year of record sales, but the global pandemic put us to the test. This past year, we were forced to act and react faster and continue to do so given the on-going health crisis. In the fourth quarter, we nearly drove our sales to a new fourth quarter record,” began Robert Greenberg, Chief Executive Officer of Skechers. “Our consumers want comfort and familiarity, especially those working from home and essential workers. We are a natural and trusted choice as comfort is the cornerstone of our product. The enhanced comfort and technology features offered within our athletic and casual footwear, including the boot and work collections delivered what consumers needed. We have a history of delivering quality and value, and athletic lifestyle footwear is one of our leading product categories. In the fourth quarter, we also expanded efforts to communicate our comfort messaging across numerous digital channels as well as through more traditional advertising methods. Remaining authentic was paramount in 2020, but the challenges we faced last year and are still facing in 2021, have created an even more agile and focused company—one with products that will remain in-demand during the ongoing crisis and beyond."

“In the face of the continuing global pandemic, Skechers experienced sales down only half a percent from the record fourth quarter sales of 2019, a significant accomplishment during this challenging time and a testament to the strength and relevance of our brand,” stated David Weinberg, Chief Operating Officer of Skechers. “Skechers has always been quick to market and able to pivot. We effectively managed the flow of our inventory to open markets, fulfilling demand as we delivered must-have products to consumers. We saw our athletic lifestyle, walking and work footwear products for men and women drive Domestic Wholesale growth. Our International Wholesale business achieved 2.5% sales growth led by a 29.7% increase in China, as well as double-digit increases in Chile, United Kingdom, Germany and Spain, among others. Though our Direct-to-Consumer sales decreased 6.4%, primarily due to the temporary closures and reduced operating hours of stores, we experienced triple-digit growth in our domestic e-commerce sales. New Skechers stores opened in select domestic and international markets, including our first dedicated golf store, located at the premier Mission Hills resort in China. While we understand the economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic will not be quick and many regions are still being impacted, Skechers remains a desired brand. As we plan for future success, we continue to invest in our long-term growth potential, including improving our supply chain in the United States, Asia and Europe and other select markets, scaling innovation within our operations, and further enhancing our digital capabilities with the planned roll out of e-commerce platforms around the world.”

Fourth quarter sales decreased 0.5% as a result of a 2.8% decrease in the Company’s domestic sales partially offset by a 1.1% increase internationally. Domestic declines were driven by lower retail sales partially offset by growth of 142.7% in e-commerce and growth in the wholesale channel. Increases in international sales were driven by wholesale partially offset by declines in retail.

The Company’s Domestic Wholesale sales increased 1.2%, International Wholesale sales increased 2.5% and its Direct-to-Consumer sales decreased 6.4%. Increases in the Company’s International Wholesale segment were driven by growth in its international wholesale subsidiaries and joint ventures, led by increases of 29.7% in China and 22.9% in Europe partially offset by a decline of 57.9% in its distributor sales. Direct-to-Consumer comparable same store sales decreased 13.4%, including decreases of 9.8% domestically and 21.7% internationally.

Gross margin increased 102 basis points to 48.9%, rising in all segments, driven by a favorable mix of international and e-commerce sales and average selling price increases in Domestic Wholesale.

SG&A expenses increased $47.4 million, or 8.6% in the quarter. Selling expenses increased by $9.2 million, or 10.4%, primarily due to higher domestic marketing expenses. General and administrative expenses increased by $38.1 million, or 8.3%. The increase was primarily the result of increases in warehouse and distribution expenses globally.

Earnings from operations decreased $36.4 million, or 38.7%, to $57.7 million.

Net earnings were $53.3 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.34. Net earnings include a one-time tax benefit of $15.9 million resulting from changes in the tax structure of our operations and related benefits provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act. Excluding the effects of this one-time tax benefit, adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.24.

In the fourth quarter, the Company’s effective income tax rate was a negative 14.0% primarily driven by the aforementioned global restructuring.

“2020 was an extremely challenging year and the fourth quarter was no exception. Multiple markets experienced temporary store closures and significantly restricted operating environments; a situation we expect to continue through the first half of 2021. Despite this, the Skechers brand continued to perform exceptionally well with strong sell through and gross margins, and the Skechers organization continued to manage effectively for today while also investing for the future,” stated, John Vandemore, Chief Financial Officer. “We believe that the strength of our financial position, the prudent investments in our infrastructure around the globe, and the focus on enhancing our digital capabilities, will position Skechers for meaningful long-term growth and shareholder value creation.”

Full year sales decreased 11.9%, reflecting the impact of the global pandemic on the Company’s businesses worldwide.

Gross margin of 47.6% was relatively flat to the prior year with increases of 160 basis points in Domestic Wholesale and 101 basis points in Direct-to-Consumer offset by a decrease of 71 basis points in International Wholesale.

SG&A expenses increased by $76.9 million or 3.9%. Selling expenses decreased by $51.8 million or 14.0%, primarily due to lower advertising and marketing expenses. General and administrative expenses increased by $128.7 million or 7.9%, primarily driven by increased domestic and international warehouse and distribution expenses, increased depreciation and amortization, including the Skechers Mexico acquisition, and a one-time, non-cash compensation charge related to the cancellation of restricted share grants in the third quarter.

Earnings from operations decreased $384.7 million, or 74.2%, to $133.7 million.

Net earnings were $98.6 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.64. Adjusted to exclude the one-time effects of the third quarter non-cash compensation charge and fourth quarter tax benefit, adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.65.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $1.37 billion, an increase of $545.9 million, or 66.2% from December 31, 2019. The increase primarily reflects the Company’s outstanding borrowings of $452.5 million against its senior unsecured credit facility.

Total inventory was $1.02 billion, a decrease of $53.1 million or 5.0% from December 31, 2019. Strong inventory management resulted in decreased inventory levels in the Company’s Domestic Wholesale and Direct-to-Consumer segments offset by increased inventory in International Wholesale, primarily to support sales growth in China.

Outlook

The Company is not providing further financial guidance at this time given the ongoing business disruption and substantial uncertainty surrounding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business globally.

Certain Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we use the non-GAAP financial measures presented above to evaluate our results of operations, financial condition, liquidity and indebtedness. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding financial and business trends related to our results of operations, cash flows and indebtedness and that when this non-GAAP financial information is viewed with our GAAP financial information, investors are provided with valuable supplemental information regarding our results of operations, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our business performance consistent with how management evaluates the Company’s operating performance and liquidity. In addition, these non-GAAP measures address questions the Company routinely receives from analysts and investors and, in order to assure that all investors have access to similar data the Company has determined that it is appropriate to make this data available to all investors. None of the non-GAAP measures presented should be considered as an alternative to net income or loss, operating income, cash flows from operating activities, total indebtedness or any other measures of operating performance and financial condition, liquidity or indebtedness derived in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Our use of these terms may vary from the use of similarly-titled measures by others in our industry due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation and differences due to items subject to interpretation. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most nearly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented below.

Reference in this press release to “Sales” refers to Skechers’ net sales reported under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. This announcement contains forward-looking statements that are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, Skechers’ future domestic and international growth, financial results and operations including expected net sales and earnings, its development of new products, future demand for its products, its planned domestic and international expansion, opening of new stores and additional expenditures, and advertising and marketing initiatives. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking language such as “believe,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will result,” “could,” “may,” “might,” or any variations of such words with similar meanings. Any such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include the disruption of business and operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic; international economic, political and market conditions including the challenging consumer retail markets in the United States; sustaining, managing and forecasting costs and proper inventory levels; losing any significant customers; decreased demand by industry retailers and cancellation of order commitments due to the lack of popularity of particular designs and/or categories of products; maintaining brand image and intense competition among sellers of footwear for consumers, especially in the highly competitive performance footwear market; anticipating, identifying, interpreting or forecasting changes in fashion trends, consumer demand for the products and the various market factors described above; sales levels during the spring, back-to-school and holiday selling seasons; and other factors referenced or incorporated by reference in Skechers’ annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2020. More specifically, the COVID-19 pandemic has had and is currently having a significant impact on Skechers’ business, financial conditions, cash flow and results of operations. Forward-looking statements with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic include, without limitation, Skechers’ plans in response to this pandemic. At this time, there is significant uncertainty about the COVID-19 pandemic, including without limitation, (i) the duration and extent of the impact of the pandemic, (ii) governmental responses to the pandemic, including how such responses could impact Skechers’ business and operations, as well as the operations of its factories and other business partners, (iii) the effectiveness of Skechers’ actions taken in response to these risks, and (iv) Skechers’ ability to effectively and timely adjust its plans in response to the rapidly changing retail and economic environment. Taking these and other risk factors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic into consideration, the dynamic nature of these circumstances means that what is stated in this press release could change at any time, and as a result, actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. The risks included here are not exhaustive. Skechers operates in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time and we cannot predict all such risk factors, nor can we assess the impact of all such risk factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. Moreover, reported results should not be considered an indication of future performance.

SKECHERS U.S.A., INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP EARNINGS FINANCIAL MEASURES TO CORRESPONDING
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (Unaudited)

Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share
We believe that Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share provide meaningful supplemental information to investors in evaluating our business performance for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020. Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not a substitute for, Net Earnings and Diluted Net Earnings Per Share which are the most comparable GAAP measures. Our method of determining non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies’ methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies. The tables below include adjustments for a one-time tax benefit, in the fourth quarter, due to the combination of an international restructuring and the CARES Act as well as the non-cash compensation charge related to the cancellation of restricted share grants in the year-to-date results.

Constant Currency Adjustment
We evaluate our results of operations on both an as reported and a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of period-over-period fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We believe providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our results of operations, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our business performance and is consistent with how management evaluates the Company’s performance. We calculate constant currency percentages by converting our current period local currency financial results using the prior-period exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to our prior period reported results.
