    • Continued to drive brand engagement and high-value new consumer acquisition through key brand moments including: our sponsorships of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships and Wimbledon; outfitting the wedding of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck; our first-ever West Coast fashion show featuring our multi-brand, multi-gender ode to California Dreaming; and most recently, our innovative partnership with Epic Games, creator and publisher of the popular game Fortnite, in the metaverse
  • Drive the Core and Expand for More
    • Drove strong revenue growth in both our Core business, up mid-teens to last year, and our high-potential categories — including Women's, Outerwear and Home — up high-teens to last year, both in constant currency
    • Product launches and special releases included our graphically-bold U.S. Open collection celebrating both on-court and spectator style, with record sales for the event; Polo Active Club, a collection of freshly styled active sweatshirts, polo shirts, outerwear and bottoms tailored to a new generation; and Polo Stadium collection of both digital and physical product as part of our Fortnite collaboration
    • Brand elevation continues with average unit retail ("AUR") up 18% across our direct-to-consumer network in the second quarter, on top of a 15% increase last year, driven by a compelling product offering and promotional discipline
  • Win in Key Cities with Our Consumer Ecosystem
    • Delivered positive constant currency revenue growth across every region and channel in the quarter, including high-teens growth in wholesale and low-double-digit growth in retail
    • By region, performance was led by Asia, up more than 30% to the prior year in constant currency, while Europe grew mid-teens and North America grew low-single-digits on top of strong post-pandemic reopening compares last year
    • Total digital ecosystem revenues grew mid-teens in the second quarter, on top of a strong comparison of 49% last year. Digital operating margin continued to meaningfully benefit the total Company margin rate

Our business is supported by our fortress foundation, which we define through our five key enablers, including: our people and culture, best-in-class digital technology and analytics, superior operational capabilities, a powerful balance sheet, and leadership in citizenship and sustainability.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2023 Income Statement Review

Net Revenue. In the second quarter of Fiscal 2023, revenue increased by 5% to $1.6 billion on a reported basis and was up 13% in constant currency. Foreign currency negatively impacted revenue growth by approximately 800 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 increased 3% to $727 million. In retail, comparable store sales in North America were flat, with a flat compare in brick and mortar stores and a 1% decrease in digital commerce. North America wholesale revenue increased 8%.
  • Europe Revenue. Europe revenue in the second quarter was flat to last year at $494 million on a reported basis and increased 15% in constant currency. In retail, comparable store sales in Europe were up 3%, with a flat compare in brick and mortar stores and a 15% increase in digital commerce. Europe wholesale revenue increased 9% on a reported basis and increased 24% in constant currency.
  • Asia Revenue. Asia revenue in the second quarter increased 17% to $316 million on a reported basis and 33% in constant currency. Comparable store sales in Asia increased 25%, with a 25% increase in our brick and mortar stores and a 22% increase in digital commerce.

Gross Profit. Gross profit for the second quarter of Fiscal 2023 was $1.0 billion and gross margin was 64.8%. Adjusted gross margin was 64.6%, 270 basis points below the prior year on a reported basis and down 80 basis points in constant currency, with better pricing and promotions more than offset by increased product costs as well as higher freight costs to mitigate ongoing global supply chain delays. Compared to second quarter Fiscal 2020, adjusted gross margins expanded 310 basis points on strong pricing and product elevation.

Operating Expenses. Operating expenses in the second quarter of Fiscal 2023 were $816 million on a reported basis. On an adjusted basis, operating expenses were $809 million, up 7% to last year, primarily driven by a normalized quarterly cadence of marketing investments as well as higher compensation and selling expenses to support increased revenues and fuel long-term growth. Adjusted operating expense rate was 51.2%, compared to 50.2% in the prior year period.

Operating Income. Operating income for the second quarter of Fiscal 2023 was $207 million and operating margin was 13.1% on a reported basis. Adjusted operating income was $211 million and operating margin was 13.4%, 370 basis points below the prior year. Operating income for the Company's reportable segments in the second quarter compared to the prior year period was as follows:

  • North America Operating Income. North America operating income in the second quarter was $127 million on a reported basis and $125 million on an adjusted basis. Adjusted North America operating margin was 17.2%, down 660 basis points to last year, driven by a planned normalization in timing of marketing investments and higher freight expense to offset global supply chain disruptions compared to the prior year.
  • Europe Operating Income. Europe operating income in the second quarter was $135 million on both a reported basis and an adjusted basis. Adjusted Europe operating margin was 27.3%, down 530 basis points to last year, driven by increased foreign currency headwinds, freight expenses and timing of marketing investments in the quarter. Foreign currency negatively impacted adjusted operating margin rate by 430 basis points in the second quarter.
  • Asia Operating Income. Asia operating income in the second quarter was $66 million on both a reported basis and an adjusted basis. Adjusted Asia operating margin was 20.8%, up 470 basis points to last year. Foreign currency negatively impacted adjusted operating margin rate by 160 basis points in the second quarter.

Net Income and EPS. Net income in the second quarter of Fiscal 2023 was $151 million, or $2.18 per diluted share on a reported basis. On an adjusted basis, net income was $154 million, or $2.23 per diluted share. This compared to net income of $193 million, or $2.57 per diluted share on a reported basis, and a net income of $197 million, or $2.62 per diluted share on an adjusted basis, for the second quarter of Fiscal 2022.

In the second quarter of Fiscal 2023, the Company had an effective tax rate of approximately 25% on both a reported basis and an adjusted basis. This compared to an effective tax rate of approximately 19% on both a reported basis and an adjusted basis in the prior year period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Review

The Company ended the second quarter of Fiscal 2023 with $1.4 billion in cash and short-term investments and $1.1 billion in total debt, compared to $3.1 billion and $1.6 billion, respectively, at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2022.

Inventory at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2023 was $1.3 billion, up 36% compared to the prior year period. Inventory growth primarily reflected earlier receipts and higher goods-in-transit to mitigate global supply chain delays and meet strong consumer demand along with increased product costs and continued elevation in product mix.

The Company repurchased approximately $170 million of Class A Common Stock in the second quarter.

Full Year Fiscal 2023 and Third Quarter Outlook

The Company's outlook is based on its best assessment of the current macroeconomic environment, including ongoing global supply chain and other inflationary pressures, foreign currency volatility, the war in Ukraine, COVID-19 variants and other COVID-related disruptions. The full year Fiscal 2023 and third quarter guidance excludes restructuring-related and other net charges, as described in the "Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures" section of this press release.

For Fiscal 2023, the Company continues to expect constant currency revenues to increase approximately high-single digits to last year, or about 8%, on a 52-week comparable basis. Based on current exchange rates, foreign currency is now expected to negatively impact revenue growth by approximately 730 basis points in Fiscal 2023. On a 53-week comparable basis, Fiscal 2023 revenue growth is still expected to be negatively impacted by approximately 100 basis points due to the absence of the 53rd week compared to the prior year.

The Company expects operating margin for Fiscal 2023 at the low end of its previous range of 14.0% to 14.5% in constant currency. Foreign currency is expected to negatively impact operating margin by approximately 200 basis points in Fiscal 2023. This compares to operating margin of 13.1% on a 52-week comparable basis and 13.4% on a 53-week basis in the prior year, both on a reported basis. Gross margin is still expected to increase approximately 30 to 50 basis points in constant currency on a 52-week comparable basis, with stronger AUR and favorable product mix more than offsetting higher freight and product cost inflation. Foreign currency is expected to negatively impact gross margins by approximately 170 basis points in Fiscal 2023.

For the third quarter, the Company expects revenue to increase low- to mid-single digits in constant currency to last year. Foreign currency is expected to negatively impact revenue growth by approximately 780 basis points. The third quarter and second half outlook reflects increased caution around consumer sentiment in Europe and North America.

Operating margin for the third quarter is expected to be in a range of 17.3% to 17.8% in constant currency, driven primarily by gross margin expansion. Foreign currency is expected to negatively impact third quarter operating margin by approximately 180 basis points and gross margin by approximately 170 basis points.

Third quarter and full year Fiscal 2023 tax rates are both expected to be in the range of 25% to 26%, assuming a continuation of current tax laws.

The Company moderated its plan for capital expenditures for Fiscal 2023 to approximately $250 million to $275 million based on timing of projects.

NON-U.S. GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Because 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. Such 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 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 businesses 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 activities, as well as certain other charges (benefits) associated with other non-recurring events, as described in the footnotes to the non-U.S. GAAP financial measures above. The income tax benefit (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 2023 and third quarter 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 up to approximately $30 million related to its Fiscal 2021 Strategic Realignment Plan that have not yet been incurred.
