Coach Reports Second Quarter Earnings Per Share Of $1.23

Coach, Inc. (NYSE: COH, SEHK: 6388), a leading marketer of modern classic American accessories, today announced sales of $1.50 billion for its second fiscal quarter ended December 29, 2012, compared with $1.45 billion reported in the same period of the prior year, an increase of 4%. On a constant currency basis sales rose 5% for the quarter. Net income for the period totaled $353 million, with earnings per diluted share of $1.23. This compared to net income of $347 million and earnings per diluted share of $1.18 in the prior year’s second quarter, increases of 2% and 5%, respectively.

Lew Frankfort, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Coach, Inc. said, “During the holiday quarter we drove modest growth and continued to gain overall traction on our key strategies. We posted strong international results, leveraged the Men’s opportunity globally and strengthened our digital capabilities. However, we were disappointed by our performance in North America, where the holiday season proved challenging. Most broadly, the consumer was impacted by a muted macroeconomic environment, while in the Women’s handbag category competition intensified and promotional activity increased. Importantly, we maintained our pricing strategies despite the retail climate, protecting our brand proposition.”

“Over the last decade we have built Coach into a leading international accessories company with a loyal and highly engaged consumer franchise. Our customers recognize the Coach brand for its authenticity, innovation and relevance. We’re now transforming Coach into a global lifestyle brand, anchored in accessories. We’ve been strengthening our teams to enhance and build out the Coach experience through product, retail environments and integrated marketing communications. This comprehensive approach will continue to add excitement and cachet to the brand.”

For the second fiscal quarter, operating income totaled $527 million, up 5% from the $501 million reported on a GAAP basis in the comparable year ago period, while the operating margin was 35.0% versus 34.6% reported in the prior year. During the quarter, gross profit increased 4% to $1.09 billion from $1.05 billion a year ago. Gross margin remained strong at 72.2%, even with the prior year. SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales was 37.2%, compared to the 37.6% reported in the year-ago quarter.
