Coach Reports Second Quarter Earnings Per Share Of $1.06

Coach, Inc. (NYSE:COH) (SEHK:6388), a leading New York design house of modern luxury accessories, today announced sales of $1.42 billion for its second fiscal quarter ended December 28, 2013, compared with $1.50 billion reported in the same period of the prior year, a decrease of 6%. On a constant currency basis sales declined 3% for the quarter. Net income for the period totaled $297 million, with earnings per diluted share of $1.06. This compared to net income of $353 million and earnings per diluted share of $1.23 in the prior year’s second quarter.

Victor Luis, Chief Executive Officer of Coach, Inc., said, “During the holiday quarter, total sales fell slightly in constant currency as weakness in our North American women’s bag and accessories business offset strong growth in Men’s, footwear, and robust results in emerging Asian markets and Europe. We continued to be disappointed by our performance in North America, which was impacted by substantially lower traffic in our stores and by our decision to limit access to our e-factory flash sales site. At the same time, China results remained resilient with total sales growing about 25% and comparable store sales rising at a double digit rate. Importantly, we continued to advance our transformation initiatives and position Coach to launch Executive Creative Director Stuart Vevers’s first collection in September.”

For the second fiscal quarter, operating income totaled $436 million, compared to $527 million reported in the prior year, while the operating margin was 30.7% versus 35.0%. During the quarter, gross profit totaled $983 million compared to $1.09 billion a year ago. Gross margin was 69.2% versus 72.2% reported in the prior year. SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales was 38.5%, compared to the 37.2% reported in the year-ago quarter.

The company also announced that during the second fiscal quarter, it repurchased and retired about 3.3 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $52.99, spending a total of $175 million and taking the year-to-date total to $350 million. At the end of the period, approximately $1.0 billion remained under the company’s current repurchase authorization.
