Movado Group, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2013 Results

Movado Group, Inc. (NYSE: MOV) today announced fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013 results for the period ended January 31, 2013.

Efraim Grinberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our fourth quarter marked a great finish to a strong year of growth for Movado Group. During the quarter our sales momentum continued and our operating margins remained strong, which led to adjusted operating income increasing 17% from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Our growth continued to be driven by the strong performance of Movado and our licensed brand portfolio. During the fourth quarter we took a $4.9 million charge to reposition the Coach watch brand into the fast growing fashion watch segment beginning in the second half of fiscal 2014. We are excited about the growth opportunities for Coach watches as we more closely align ourselves with Coach’s recently announced lifestyle strategy. We are also excited to announce our multi-year strategic plan that positions us well for future growth in both sales and profitability.”

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company recorded certain unusual items including the pre-tax charge of $4.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, related to a sales allowance for the Coach repositioning initiative. Partially offsetting this unusual item was a benefit of approximately $0.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to various tax adjustments including the previously announced increase in ownership of the Company’s UK joint venture, as well as the partial reversal of a valuation allowance on certain U.S. net deferred tax assets.

In the prior year fourth quarter, the Company recorded certain unusual items including a non-recurring pre-tax benefit of $2.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, related to a sale of mechanical movements. Additionally during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company recorded a net tax benefit of $3.1 million which included the release of a $10.3 million Swiss valuation allowance and a $4.3 million settlement with the Swiss federal tax authorities. Partially offsetting these unusual items was a $3.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, pre-tax contribution to the Movado Group Foundation, which was reflected in operating expenses for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter.
