DENVER, July 30, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended July 3, 2021. All per share amounts are presented on a diluted basis. This release refers to "reported" and "constant dollar" amounts, terms that are described under the heading "Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency." Unless otherwise noted, "reported" and "constant dollar" amounts are the same. This release also refers to "continuing" and "discontinued" operations amounts, which are concepts described under the heading "Discontinued Operations - Occupational Workwear Business." Unless otherwise noted, results presented are based on continuing operations. This release also refers to "adjusted" amounts, a term that is described under the heading "Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Transaction and Deal Related Activities and Costs Related to Specified Strategic Business Decisions." Unless otherwise noted, "reported" and "adjusted" amounts are the same.

"Our teams delivered an outstanding first quarter, powering VF back to pre-pandemic revenue levels while driving an earnings recovery ahead of our expectations," said Steve Rendle, VF's Chairman, President and CEO. "We continue to see broad-based momentum across the portfolio, supporting an increase to our fiscal 2022 outlook for each of our largest brands. Though the first quarter is a relatively small portion of our total year, this strong start reinforces my confidence in our ability to accelerate growth through fiscal 2022 and beyond."

Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency

This release refers to "reported" amounts in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), which include translation and transactional impacts from foreign currency exchange rates. This release also refers to "constant dollar" amounts, which exclude the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. Reconciliations of GAAP measures to constant currency amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

Discontinued Operations - Occupational Workwear Business

On June 28, 2021, VF completed the sale of its Occupational Workwear business. The Occupational Workwear business was comprised primarily of the following brands and businesses: Red Kap®, VF Solutions®, Bulwark®, Workrite®, Walls®, Terra®, Kodiak®, Work Authority® and Horace Small®. The business also included a license for certain Dickies® occupational workwear products that have historically been sold through the business-to-business channel. Accordingly, the company has reported the related held-for-sale assets and liabilities as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations and included the operating results and cash flows of the business in discontinued operations for all periods, through the date of sale.

Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Transaction and Deal Related Activities and Costs Related to Specified Strategic Business Decisions

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude transaction and deal related activities associated with the acquisition of the Supreme® brand. Total transaction and deal related activities include a decrease in the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration liability of $73 million and integration costs of approximately $4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022.

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude costs related to VF's business model transformation, a transformation initiative for our Asia-Pacific regional operations and certain cost optimization activities and other charges indirectly related to the divestiture of the Occupational Workwear business. Total costs were approximately $14 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022.

Combined, the above items positively impacted earnings per share by $0.12 during the first quarter of fiscal 2022. All adjusted amounts referenced herein exclude the effects of these amounts.

Reconciliations of measures calculated in accordance with GAAP to adjusted amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

COVID-19 Outbreak Update

To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and in response to public health advisories and governmental actions and regulations, VF has modified its business practices, including the temporary closing of offices and retail stores, instituting travel bans and restrictions and implementing health and safety measures including social distancing and quarantines.

The majority of VF's supply chain is currently operational. Suppliers are complying with local public health advisories and governmental restrictions which has resulted in isolated product delays. The resurgence of COVID-19 lockdowns in key sourcing countries has resulted in additional manufacturing capacity constraints during the first quarter. Additionally, port delays, equipment availability and other logistics challenges have contributed to product delays. VF is working with its suppliers to minimize disruption and is employing expedited freight as needed. VF's distribution centers are operational in accordance with local government guidelines while maintaining enhanced health and safety protocols.

In North America, less than 5 percent of stores were closed at the beginning of the first quarter. All stores have since reopened and currently all stores are open.

In the EMEA region, approximately 60 percent of stores were closed at the beginning of the first quarter. All stores have since reopened and currently all stores are open.

Nearly all of VF's owned retail stores in the APAC region, including Mainland China, were open at the beginning of the first quarter. Additional stores have since re-closed and currently 5% of stores are closed.

VF is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak globally and will comply with guidance from government entities and public health authorities to prioritize the health and well-being of its employees, customers, trade partners and consumers. As COVID-19 uncertainty continues, VF expects ongoing disruption to its business operations.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Income Statement Review

  • Revenue increased 104 percent (up 96 percent in constant dollars) to $2.2 billion.

On an adjusted basis, operating income increased 164 percent (160 percent in constant dollars) to $148 million, including a $32 million contribution from acquisitions.

Constant Currency Financial Information

VF is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by VF from translating its foreign revenues and expenses into U.S. dollars. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported operating results. As a supplement to our reported operating results, we present constant currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. We use constant currency information to provide a framework to assess how our business performed excluding the effects of changes in the rates used to calculate foreign currency translation. Management believes this information is useful to investors to facilitate comparison of operating results and better identify trends in our businesses.

To calculate foreign currency translation on a constant currency basis, operating results for the current year period for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable period of the prior year (rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period).

These constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, our operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(a) Transaction and deal related activities include activities associated with the acquisition of Supreme Holdings, Inc. ("Supreme") for the three months ended June 2021. Transaction and deal related activities include a decrease in the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration liability of $73.0 million and integration costs of $4.4 million for the three months ended June 2021. The transaction and deal related activities resulted in a net tax expense of $9.5 million in the three months ended June 2021, primarily related to the impact of the decrease in the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration liability on the interim tax rate calculation.

(b) Specified strategic business decisions for the three months ended June 2021 include costs related to VF's business model transformation of $1.5 million in the three months ended June 2021, related primarily to restructuring and other costs. Specified strategic business decisions also include costs related to a transformation initiative for our Asia-Pacific regional operations of $8.5 million in the three months ended June 2021. Specified strategic business decisions also include cost optimization activities and other charges indirectly related to the divestiture of the Occupational Workwear business, which totaled $4.1 million during the three months ended June 2021. The specified strategic business decisions resulted in a net tax benefit of $2.2 million in the three months ended June 2021.

(c) The contribution from acquisition represents the operating results of Supreme for the three months ended June 2021. The results exclude transaction and deal related activities.

(d) Amounts shown in the table have been calculated using unrounded numbers. The diluted earnings per share impacts were calculated using 394,128,000 weighted average common shares for the three months ended June 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The financial information above has been presented on a GAAP basis, on an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of transaction and deal related activities and activity related to specified strategic business decisions, and on an adjusted organic basis, which excludes the operating results of Supreme (for the three months ended June 2021). Contribution from acquisition also excludes transaction and deal related activities. These adjusted presentations are non-GAAP measures. Management believes these measures provide investors with useful supplemental information regarding VF's underlying business trends and the performance of VF's ongoing operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations.

Management uses the above financial measures internally in its budgeting and review process and, in some cases, as a factor in determining compensation. While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, VF's operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
