NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 7, 2019-- Ralph Lauren Corporation (NYSE:RL), a global leader in the design, marketing, and distribution of premium lifestyle products, today reported earnings per diluted share of $2.34 on a reported basis and $2.55 on an adjusted basis, excluding restructuring-related and other charges, for the second quarter of Fiscal 2020.

“Our global teams are elevating our iconic brand across every market and channel,” said Ralph Lauren, Executive Chairman and Chief Creative Officer. “From our stores to our digital flagships and the way we are connecting on social media, the authentic expression of the Ralph Lauren lifestyle is showing up in relevant ways all over the world.”

“We delivered second quarter results slightly ahead of our overall expectations, including better than expected revenues, operating margin, and double-digit EPS growth, amid a more challenging operating environment,” said Patrice Louvet, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our progress was driven by a continued focus on brand elevation and creating immersive lifestyle experiences that are amplified across our stores and digital marketing and commerce channels around the world, while also maintaining expense discipline.”

We delivered across the following strategic initiatives in the second quarter of Fiscal 2020:

  • Win Over a New Generation of Consumers

    • Elevated our brand through cultural moments such as our Ralph Lauren x Friends 25th Anniversary capsule collection and Indigo Stadium Limited Edition launch
  • Energize Core Products and Accelerate Under-Developed Categories
    • Average unit retail across our direct-to-consumer network was up 2% in the second quarter, on top of a 5% increase last year, consistent with our expectation of modestly accelerating AUR growth throughout Fiscal 2020
    • Continued momentum in under-developed categories, led by denim sell-out performance in the quarter
  • Drive Targeted Expansion in Our Regions and Channels
    • Solid growth in international regions including constant currency revenue growth of 8% in Europe and 5% in Asia
    • Momentum in key long-term growth markets continued with constant currency revenue growth of 22% in the Chinese mainland, while Hong Kong was down 27% due to business disruptions
  • Lead With Digital
    • Global digital revenue grew low-teens to last year in constant currency, driven by more than 30% growth in International and modest growth in North America
    • Continued expansion into new digital distribution platforms including rental, subscription, and resale models
  • Operate With Discipline to Fuel Growth
    • Adjusted operating margins expanded 100 basis points in the quarter, driven by gross margin expansion and SG&A leverage
    • Inventory growth moderated to 2% at the end of the second quarter, reflecting global inventory optimization initiatives, better aligning with our sales outlook

Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Income Statement Review

Net Revenue. In the second quarter of Fiscal 2020, revenue increased by 1% to $1.7 billion on a reported basis and was up 2% in constant currency, driven by Europe and Asia. Foreign currency negatively impacted revenue growth by approximately 130 basis points in the second quarter.

Revenue performance for the Company’s reportable segments in the second quarter compared to the prior year period was as follows:

  • North America Revenue. North America revenue in the second quarter decreased 1% to $881 million. In retail, comparable store sales in North America were up 2%, driven by a 2% comp increase in brick and mortar stores and 2% increase at ralphlauren.com. North America wholesale revenue decreased 6%.
  • Europe Revenue. Europe revenue in the second quarter increased 3% to $480 million on a reported basis and 8% in constant currency. In retail, comparable store sales in Europe were up 3%, driven by a 2% increase in brick and mortar stores and a 13% increase in digital commerce. Europe wholesale revenue increased 2% on a reported basis and 7% in constant currency.
  • Asia Revenue. Asia revenue in the second quarter increased 4% to $255 million on a reported basis and 5% in constant currency, driven by solid growth in retail. Comparable store sales in Asia increased 1%, reflecting growth in both brick and mortar and digital commerce operations, partly offset by declines in Hong Kong.

Gross Profit. Gross profit for the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 was $1.0 billion and gross margin was 61.5%. Adjusted gross margin was 60 basis points above the prior year on a reported basis and up 80 basis points in constant currency.

Gross margin benefited from favorable channel, geographic, and product mix and better pricing and promotions.

Operating Expenses. Operating expenses in the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 were $816 million on a reported basis, including $21 million in restructuring-related and other charges. On an adjusted basis, excluding such charges, operating expenses were $795 million, roughly flat to last year.

Adjusted operating expense rate was 46.6%, 30 basis points below the prior year period, excluding restructuring-related and other charges. This decrease was driven by cost reduction initiatives and lower marketing spend compared to last year’s higher marketing investments around our 50th Anniversary fashion show and related events.

Operating Income. Operating income for the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 was $233 million on a reported basis, including restructuring-related and other charges of $21 million, and operating margin was 13.7%. Adjusted operating income was $254 million and adjusted operating margin was 14.9%, 100 basis points above the prior year, excluding restructuring-related and other charges from both periods.

  • North America Operating Income. North America operating income in the second quarter was $200 million on both a reported and adjusted basis. Adjusted North America operating margin was 22.7%, down 100 basis points from last year.
  • Europe Operating Income. Europe operating income in the second quarter was $141 million on both a reported and adjusted basis. Adjusted Europe operating margin was 29.3%, up 170 basis points to the prior year period. In constant currency, adjusted operating margin increased 220 basis points.
  • Asia Operating Income. Asia operating income in the second quarter was $41 million on both a reported and adjusted basis. Adjusted Asia operating margin was 16.2%, up 140 basis points to the prior year on both a reported and constant currency basis.

Net Income and EPS. On a reported basis, net income in the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 was $182 million, or $2.34 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis, net income was $198 million, or $2.55 per diluted share, excluding restructuring-related and other charges. This compared to net income of $170 million, or $2.07 per diluted share on a reported basis, and net income of $186 million, or $2.26 per diluted share on an adjusted basis, for the second quarter of Fiscal 2019.

In the second quarter of Fiscal 2020, the Company had an effective tax rate of approximately 23% on both a reported basis and adjusted basis, excluding restructuring and related other charges. This compared to an effective tax rate of approximately 21% on a reported and 23% on an adjusted basis, excluding restructuring and related other charges, in the prior year period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Review

The Company ended the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 with $1.6 billion in cash and short and long-term investments and $693 million in total debt, compared to $1.9 billion and $684 million, respectively, at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2019.

Inventory at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 was $1.0 billion, up 2% compared to the prior year period.

The Company repurchased approximately $250 million of Class A Common Stock during the second quarter. Approximately $830 million remained available under the Company’s authorized share repurchase programs at the end of the second quarter.

Full Year Fiscal 2020 and Third Quarter Outlook

The full year Fiscal 2020 and third quarter guidance excludes restructuring-related and other charges, as described in the “Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures” section of this press release.

For Fiscal 2020, the Company continues to expect net revenue growth of 2% to 3% on a constant currency basis but now expects results at the low end of this range, primarily based on intensifying headwinds in Hong Kong. Foreign currency is now expected to negatively impact revenue growth by approximately 130 basis points in Fiscal 2020.

The Company continues to expect operating margin for Fiscal 2020 to increase 40 to 60 basis points in constant currency. This outlook now includes the impact of List 4 tariffs from China. Foreign currency is expected to negatively impact operating margin by about 20 basis points in Fiscal 2020.

In the third quarter of Fiscal 2020, the Company expects net revenue to be about flat in constant currency. Foreign currency is expected to pressure revenue growth by approximately 70 to 90 basis points in the third quarter of Fiscal 2020.

Operating margin for the third quarter of Fiscal 2020 is expected to be flat to down about 20 basis points in constant currency. Foreign currency is expected to have a minimal impact on operating margin in the third quarter.

The Company continues to expect the full year Fiscal 2020 tax rate to be approximately 22%. Third quarter of Fiscal 2020 tax rate is estimated at approximately 21%.

  SEGMENT INFORMATION                  
  Effective beginning in the first quarter of Fiscal 2020, operating results related to the Company's business in Latin America are included within its Europe segment due to a change in the way in which the Company manages this business. Previously, such results were included within the Company's other non-reportable segments. All prior period segment information has been recast to reflect this change on a comparative basis.
  Net revenues and operating income for the periods ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018 for each segment were as follows:

NON-U.S. GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Since Ralph Lauren Corporation is a global company, the comparability of its operating results reported in U.S. Dollars is affected by foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations because the underlying currencies in which it transacts change in value over time compared to the U.S. Dollar. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on the Company’s reported results. As such, in addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("U.S. GAAP"), the Company’s discussions often contain references to constant currency measures, which are calculated by translating the current-year and prior-year reported amounts into comparable amounts using a single foreign exchange rate for each currency. The Company presents constant currency financial information, which is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, as a supplement to its reported operating results. The Company uses constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how its business performed excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Management believes this information is useful to investors for facilitating comparisons of operating results and better identifying trends in the Company’s businesses. The constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, the Company’s operating performance measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

This earnings release also includes certain other non-U.S. GAAP financial measures relating to the impact of charges and other items as described herein. The Company uses non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, among other things, to evaluate its operating performance and to better represent the manner in which it conducts and views its business. The Company believes that excluding items that are not comparable from period to period helps investors and others compare operating performance between two periods. While the Company considers non-U.S. GAAP measures useful in analyzing its results, they are not intended to replace, nor act as a substitute for, any presentation included in the consolidated financial statements prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP, and may be different from non-U.S. GAAP measures reported by other companies.

Adjustments made during the fiscal periods presented include charges recorded in connection with the Company’s restructuring plans, as well as certain other charges associated with other non-recurring events, as described in the footnotes to the non-U.S. GAAP financial measures above. The income tax provision has been adjusted for the tax-related effects of these charges, which were calculated using the respective statutory tax rates for each applicable jurisdiction. Included in this earnings release are reconciliations between the non-U.S. GAAP financial measures and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures before and after these adjustments.

Additionally, the Company’s full year Fiscal 2020 and third quarter Fiscal 2020 guidance excludes certain anticipated restructuring-related and other charges. The Company is not able to provide a full reconciliation of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures to U.S. GAAP because certain material items that impact these measures, such as the timing and exact amount of charges related to its restructuring plans, have not yet occurred or are out of the Company’s control. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the Company’s non-U.S. GAAP based financial measure guidance to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort. However, the Company has identified the estimated impact of certain items excluded from its financial outlook. Specifically, the Company’s financial outlook excludes estimated pretax charges of approximately $5 million to $30 million related to its Fiscal 2019 Restructuring Plan that have not yet been incurred.
