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 second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
For the Second Quarter 2013:
Edward Rosenfeld, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We achieved solid sales and earnings results in the second quarter despite a challenging retail environment. Through careful inventory management, we recorded gross margin increases in both the wholesale and retail businesses. The gross margin improvement, combined with well-controlled expenses, enabled us to deliver a robust year-over-year gain in operating profit margin. We believe these results underscore the power of our brands and our business model, and we remain confident about our long term growth prospects.”
Second Quarter 2013 Segment Results
Net sales from the wholesale business grew 1.3% to $251.4 million in the second quarter compared to $248.1 million in the second quarter of 2012, with growth in the wholesale accessories business partially offset by flat sales in the wholesale footwear business driven by a decline in our Topline division due to the loss of two private label customers. Gross margin in the wholesale business was 32.1% compared to 31.6% in last year’s second quarter, driven by improvement in the Steve Madden Women’s wholesale footwear division.
Retail net sales rose 13.9% to $46.2 million compared to $40.6 million in the second quarter of the prior year driven by the opening of 17 new stores since the end of the second quarter last year and a same store sales increase of 2.5%. Retail gross margin increased to 64.7% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to 63.7% in the second quarter of 2012 driven by fewer markdowns.
The Company opened two Steve Madden full-price stores and one outlet store in the second quarter and ended the quarter with 113 company-operated retail locations, including 12 outlets and three Internet stores.
Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
During the quarter, the Company repurchased 455,616 shares of the Company’s common stock for $21.6 million at an average price of $47.46 per share.
At the end of the second quarter, cash, cash equivalents, and current and non-current marketable securities totaled $290.1 million.
The Company reaffirms fiscal year 2013 guidance that net sales will increase 6 – 8% from 2012. Diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $2.95 – $3.05.
