Factors at Play
Robust segmental performances, brand presence and supply chain are likely to have aided first-quarter performance. Also, initiatives like product innovation and expansion strategies along with adoption of its new distribution channel (Lowe's) are likely to have boosted the top line in the to-be-reported quarter.
Moreover, cost improvements across its portfolios and favorable shift in the channel mix are likely to have driven earnings in first-quarter 2020 despite currency headwinds. Its four strategic growth drivers — expansion of the customer base, introduction of products, acceleration of direct-to-consumer and international expansion — are commendable as well.
However, the coronavirus pandemic is expected to have materially affected YETI Holdings’ performance in the fiscal first quarter owing to reduced traffic in the wake of retail store closures.
