LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Feb. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Steve Madden (Nasdaq: SHOO), a leading designer and marketer of fashion-forward footwear, accessories and apparel for women, men and children, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2019, and provided initial fiscal year 2020 revenue and EPS guidance.

Amounts referred to as “Adjusted” exclude the items that are described under the heading “Non-GAAP Adjustments.”

The Company reclassed commission and licensing fee income to Total Revenue and reclassed its respective expenses into Operating Expenses from previously labeled Commission and Licensing Fee Income - Net on the Company's Consolidated Statement of Operations for each period provided.

For the Fourth Quarter 2019:

  • Revenue increased 0.7% to $419.6 million compared to $416.8 million in the same period of 2018.
  • Gross margin was 37.7% compared to 38.1% in the same period last year.  Adjusted gross margin was 37.8% in 2019.
  • Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue were 33.1% compared to 32.1% in the same period of 2018.  Adjusted operating expenses as a percentage of revenue were 30.0% compared to 29.0% in the same period of 2018.
  • Income from operations totaled $19.5 million, or 4.6% of revenue, compared to $25.0 million, or 6.0% of revenue, in the same period of 2018.  Adjusted income from operations was $33.0 million, or 7.9% of revenue, compared to Adjusted income from operations of $37.9 million, or 9.1% of revenue, in the same period of 2018.
  • Net income attributable to Steven Madden, Ltd. was $17.8 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $12.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the prior year’s fourth quarter.  Adjusted net income attributable to Steven Madden, Ltd. was $32.2 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to $35.7 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the prior year’s fourth quarter.

Edward Rosenfeld, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to have achieved Adjusted diluted EPS at the high end of our guidance range for the fourth quarter and full year 2019.  Fiscal year 2019 was a strong year for the Company, with revenue and Adjusted diluted EPS increasing mid-single digits on a percentage basis compared to the prior year despite significant headwinds from the bankruptcy of Payless ShoeSource and the tariffs implemented on accessories, footwear and apparel from China.

“Looking ahead, while we are cautious on the near-term outlook due to additional headwinds from the coronavirus outbreak, China tariffs and the termination of the Kate Spade footwear license, we are confident that the strength of our brands and our business model will enable us to drive earnings growth and shareholder value creation over the long term.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Segment Results

Revenue for the wholesale business decreased 1.1% to $313.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 due primarily to a decrease in wholesale accessories/apparel revenue.  Wholesale footwear revenue declined 0.2% with a decline in the branded business offset by a gain in private label.  Wholesale accessories/apparel revenue decreased 3.6% driven by declines in private label handbags and cold weather accessories, partially offset by the addition of the BB Dakota apparel business.  Gross margin in the wholesale business decreased to 29.2% compared to 30.1% in last year’s fourth quarter driven by tariffs on goods imported from China.

Retail revenue in the fourth quarter rose 8.7% to $101.1 million compared to $93.0 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year.  Same store sales increased 6.7% in the quarter driven by strong performance in the Company’s e-commerce business.  Retail gross margin was 61.2% in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 61.0% in last year's fourth quarter.  Adjusted gross margin in the retail segment increased to 61.6% in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 61.0% in the fourth quarter of the prior year due to a reduction in promotional activity.

The Company ended the quarter with 227 company-operated retail locations, including eight Internet stores, as well as 31 company-operated concessions in international markets.

The Company’s effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2019 was 15.9% compared to 52.7% in the fourth quarter of 2018.  On an Adjusted basis, the effective tax rate was 6.3% compared to 9.2% in the fourth quarter of the prior year due to the impact of the year-over-year benefit resulting from the exercising and vesting of share-based awards.

Full Year Ended December 31, 2019

For the full year ended December 31, 2019, revenue increased 6.5% to $1.8 billion from $1.7 billion in the prior year.

Net income attributable to Steven Madden, Ltd. was $141.3 million, or $1.69 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2019 compared to net income of $129.1 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2018.  On an Adjusted basis, net income attributable to Steven Madden, Ltd. was $162.8 million, or $1.95 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2019 compared to net income of $157.7 million, or $1.83 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company repurchased 589,809 shares of the Company’s common stock for approximately $25.3 million, which includes shares acquired through the net settlement of employee stock awards.  For the full year ended December 31, 2019, the Company repurchased 3.0 million shares of the Company's common stock for approximately $101.8 million, which includes shares acquired through the net settlement of employee stock awards.

As of December 31, 2019, cash, cash equivalents and current marketable securities totaled $304.6 million.

Quarterly Dividend

The Company’s Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share.  The dividend will be paid on March 27, 2020, to stockholders of record at the close of business on March 17, 2020.

Fiscal Year 2020 Outlook

For fiscal year 2020, the Company expects revenue will increase 0% to 1% over revenue in 2019.  The Company expects diluted EPS for fiscal year 2020 will be in the range of $1.70 to $1.80.  Compared to the prior year, the diluted EPS range reflects an adverse impact of approximately $0.35 from the combined impact of the coronavirus, tariffs on goods from China, the termination of the Kate Spade footwear license and a higher anticipated tax rate.
