NEW YORK, December 01, 2021 --(BUSINESS WIRE)--G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. (NasdaqGS: GIII) today announced operating results for the third quarter of fiscal 2022, ended October 31, 2021.

Morris Goldfarb, G-III’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The strong momentum in our business in the first half continues, as we delivered outstanding third quarter results with both top and bottom line exceeding our guidance. Given the strong demand we are seeing across our brands, we are well positioned for the holiday season. We are raising our full year guidance and expect to deliver our highest annual earnings in our company’s history."

Mr. Goldfarb concluded, "Our world-class team continues to maintain tremendous flexibility and is delivering the right product at the right time across our diversified distribution channels. We believe we will enter the new fiscal year in our strongest financial position ever, affording us flexibility to further expand our global reach and increase shareholder value."

Net sales for the third quarter ended October 31, 2021 increased 22.8% to $1.02 billion from $826.6 million in the prior year’s quarter. The Company reported net income for the third quarter of $106.7 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, compared to $63.2 million, or $1.29 per diluted share, in the prior year’s quarter.

The Company completed the restructuring of its retail operations segment during fiscal 2021 and closed its Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass stores. Included in the Company’s results for the third quarter of last year are net losses from the Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass store operations of $12.0 million, or $(0.25) per diluted share. These results reflect direct store operations including impairment charges, but do not include any allocated corporate overhead charges, shared administrative expenses or shared distribution expenses. These operating results for Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass are presented solely to provide the historical operating results of the portion of the Company’s retail operations segment that was closed and are not intended to be used to develop expectations for future results of the Company or to indicate any future level of profitability of the Company.

Outlook

The Company today raised its guidance for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022. As the developments associated with the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be fluid, the Company’s fiscal year 2022 guidance contemplates the expected impact from the current supply chain conditions, including expected increased shipping costs and delays in receipt of goods. However, the guidance does not contemplate any reimposition of government-mandated store closures or other governmental restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The reimposition of store closures or other restrictions could have a material impact on our net sales, results of operations and supply chain during fiscal 2022. The Company’s fiscal 2022 results could differ materially from its current outlook as a result of the occurrence of any of these or other uncontemplated events.

For fiscal 2022, the Company expects net sales of approximately $2.77 billion and net income between $180.0 million and $190.0 million, or between $3.65 and $3.75 per diluted share. The Company previously forecasted net sales of approximately $2.70 billion and net income between $155.0 million and $165.0 million, or between $3.10 and $3.20 per diluted share. This compares to net sales of $2.06 billion and net income of $23.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, last year. Last fiscal year’s results included net sales of $91.8 million and a net loss of $(1.14) per diluted share associated with the Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass store operations.

The tables above reflect the four wall operations of Wilsons Leather and G.H. Bass stores, which are included in the consolidated operating results of the Company. As part of our retail restructuring, we closed these stores. The results for this portion of our retail operations segment include impairment charges, but do not include any allocated corporate overhead charges, shared administrative expenses or shared distribution center expenses. Corporate overhead charges, shared administrative expenses and shared distribution center expenses have been excluded as these expenses will continue to be incurred by the Company notwithstanding the restructuring of its retail operations segment. The Company continues to evaluate to what extent these expenses might be able to be reduced now that the restructuring has been completed. No interest expense has been allocated in calculating these operating results. The tax rates used assume the same overall effective rate that is reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements for fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2020. The tables above also reflect the results of operations of the Company’s four Calvin Klein Performance stores that were closed as part of the retail restructuring. The operating results of the four Calvin Klein Performance stores are also included in the consolidated operating results of the Company.
