Stocks in this article: SHOO

Steve Madden (Nasdaq:SHOO), a leading designer and marketer of fashion footwear and accessories for women, men and children, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

For the Third Quarter 2013:

  • Net sales increased 10.6% to $394.8 million compared to $356.9 million in the same period of 2012.
  • Retail comparable store sales decreased 3.5%.
  • Gross margin declined to 35.4% as compared to 36.8% in the same period last year due primarily to a sales mix shift to the lower-margin private label footwear business.
  • Consolidated operating expenses as a percentage of sales were 19.4% compared to 20.6% of sales in the same period of 2012 due to strong cost control and operating expense leverage on growing sales.
  • Operating income totaled $68.1 million, or 17.2% of net sales, compared with operating income of $56.4 million, or 15.8% of net sales, in the same period of 2012. Operating income in the third quarter of 2012 included a $5.1 million impairment charge and a $0.9 million charge for bad debt, both related to the bankruptcy of Bakers Footwear Group. Excluding these charges, operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $62.4 million, or 17.5% of net sales.
  • Net income increased 16.1% to $44.0 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, compared to $37.9 million, or $0.57 per diluted share in the prior year's third quarter, adjusted for the three-for-two stock split effective October 2, 2013. Net income for the third quarter of 2012 included the aforementioned charges for impairment and bad debt related to the bankruptcy of Bakers Footwear Group. On an after-tax basis, these charge negatively impacted net income by $3.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

Edward Rosenfeld, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We delivered a solid quarter in a difficult retail environment. Our wholesale footwear business exhibited broad-based strength, with 11% growth in branded footwear and 38% growth in private label footwear. Our accessories business was more challenging, with a sales decline due primarily to weakness in the cold weather accessories and belt categories. Our retail business was also softer than expected, due in large part to weak retail traffic trends. Despite these challenges, we believe that this quarter demonstrated that our flagship Steve Madden brand is stronger than ever. We recorded double-digit percentage gains in our Steve Madden wholesale business in both footwear and accessories, both domestically and abroad, as well as in our Steve Madden Men’s and Madden Girl wholesale footwear businesses. With Steve and his design team continuing to create on-trend merchandise assortments and the core brand gaining market share, we are confident we can continue to advance our growth objectives.”
