Crocs, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

NIWOT, Colo., Nov. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ:CROX) today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Third Quarter Highlights:
  • Revenues were in-line with guidance at $245.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. On a constant currency basis, revenues decreased 11.6%, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015.
  • Improved inventory management resulted in a $21.4 million, or 11.2%, decrease in inventory as of September 30, 2016 compared to September 30, 2015.

Gregg Ribatt, Chief Executive Officer, said: "We continue to manage our business tightly in what remains a challenging consumer environment. Revenues were in-line with our expectations while gross margin exceeded our guidance by approximately 200 basis points as we further limited off-price selling and promotional activities. At the same time, we reduced our inventories 11% compared with last year. Looking ahead, we continue to plan conservatively given the current top-line headwinds. We are working hard to drive quality growth through our product, marketing, and distribution strategies and we remain confident that the steps we've taken to build a better business model will result in increased profitability and greater shareholder value."
