BROOMFIELD, Colo., April 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CROX), a world leader in innovative casual footwear for women, men, and children, today announced its first quarter 2023 financial results.

“Our exceptional first quarter results are a testament to the strength of our brands. The Crocs Brand grew 19.0% as we see a strong consumer response to our new clog and sandal introductions. The HEYDUDE brand is gaining momentum and experienced outstanding DTC growth,” said Andrew Rees, Chief Executive Officer. “We are raising our 2023 revenue growth outlook to now be 11% to 14%, resulting in revenues of approximately $4.0 billion, reflecting our confidence in our ability to continue to gain market share, deliver best-in-class profitability, and generate strong cash flow.”

Amounts referred to as “Adjusted” or “Non-GAAP” are Non-GAAP measures and include adjustments that are described under the heading “Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures.” A reconciliation of these amounts to their GAAP counterparts are contained in the schedules below.

  • Income from operations increased 98.0% to $234.9 million and operating margin was 26.6%, compared to 18.0% for the same period last year, due to higher gross margin and significantly less HEYDUDE acquisition expenses.

CROCS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we present “Non-GAAP cost of sales,” “Non-GAAP gross profit,” “Non-GAAP gross margin,” “Non-GAAP gross margin by brand,” “Non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expenses,” “Non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses as a percent of revenues,” “Non-GAAP income from operations,” “Non-GAAP operating margin,” “Non-GAAP income tax expense (benefit),” “Non-GAAP effective tax rate,” “Non-GAAP net income,” and “Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per common share,” which are non-GAAP financial measures. We also present future period guidance for “Non-GAAP operating margin,” “Non-GAAP operating income,” “Non-GAAP effective tax rate,” and “Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share.” Non-GAAP results exclude the impact of items that management believes affect the comparability or underlying business trends in our condensed consolidated financial statements in the periods presented.

We also present certain information related to our current period results of operations through “constant currency,” which is a non-GAAP financial measure and should be viewed as a supplement to our results of operations and presentation of reportable segments under GAAP. Constant currency represents current period results that have been retranslated using exchange rates used in the prior year comparative period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Management uses non-GAAP results to assist in comparing business trends from period to period on a consistent basis in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts, and investors concerning our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and other users of our condensed consolidated financial statements as an additional tool for evaluating operating performance and trends. For the three months ended March 31, 2023, management believes it is helpful to evaluate our results excluding the impacts of various adjustments relating to special or non-recurring items. Investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, and subsequently in the fourth quarter of 2021, we made changes to our international legal structure, including an intra-entity transfer of certain intellectual property rights, primarily to align with current and future international operations. The transfers resulted in a step-up in the tax basis of intellectual property rights and correlated increases in foreign deferred tax assets based on the fair value of the transferred intellectual property rights. This adjustment represents the current period impact of these transfers. The prior year adjustment also includes the release of the valuation allowance as a result of a tax law change.

For the full year 2023, we expect to incur approximately $30 million in costs primarily related to capital investments to support growth and to be fairly balanced across COGS and SG&A.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, and subsequently in the fourth quarter of 2021, we made changes to our international legal structure, including an intra-entity transfer of certain intellectual property rights, primarily to align with current and future international operations. This adjustment represents the amortization of the deferred tax asset related to these intellectual property rights in this period.

Non-GAAP Financial Guidance

Our forward-looking guidance for consolidated “adjusted operating margin,” and “adjusted diluted earnings per share” represents non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or otherwise have been adjusted for special items from our U.S. GAAP financial statements. We consider these items to be necessary adjustments for purposes of evaluating our ongoing business performance and are often considered non-recurring. Such adjustments are subjective and involve significant management judgment.

While we are able to estimate full year non-GAAP adjustments, we are unable to reconcile forward-looking adjusted measures to their nearest U.S. GAAP measure quarter-by-quarter because we are unable to predict the timing of these adjustments with a reasonable degree of certainty. By their very nature, special and other non-core items are difficult to anticipate with precision because they are generally associated with unexpected and unplanned events that impact our company and its financial results. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures for the guidance related to the second quarter of 2023.

Comparable store status, as included in the DTC comparable sales figures above, is determined on a monthly basis. Comparable
store sales include the revenues of stores that have been in operation for more than twelve months. Stores in which selling square
footage has changed more than 15% as a result of a remodel, expansion, or reduction are excluded until the thirteenth month in
which they have comparable prior year sales. Temporarily closed stores are excluded from the comparable store sales calculation
during the month of closure and in the same month in the following year. Location closures in excess of three months are excluded
until the thirteenth month post re-opening. E-commerce comparable revenues are based on same site sales period over period.
E-commerce sites that are temporarily offline or unable to transact or fulfill orders (“site disruption”) are excluded from the
comparable sales calculation during the month of site disruption and in the same month in the following year. E-commerce site
disruptions in excess of three months are excluded until the thirteenth month after the site has re-opened.

We acquired HEYDUDE on February 17, 2022 and, as a result, added the HEYDUDE Brand as a new operating segment. As such,
in the three months ended March 31, 2022, we did not disclose DTC comparable sales for the HEYDUDE Brand.
