GOLETA, Calif., Feb. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), a global leader in designing, marketing, and distributing innovative footwear, apparel, and accessories, today announced financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2021. The Company also provided an update to its financial outlook for the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2022.

"Our portfolio of brands delivered Deckers' largest quarter in history, with balanced growth among our direct-to-consumer and wholesale channels and across multiple geographies," said Dave Powers, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe HOKA and UGG are two of the strongest brands in the footwear industry, which are complimented by our strong operating model and fortified balance sheet. While we have continued to experience unprecedented demand for our brands, we are still navigating a challenging supply chain and pandemic environment. Even with these headwinds, I have great confidence in our organization and its ability to deliver another impressive year while positioning the company for long-term success."

COVID-19 Update

The Company continues to assess and modify its operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company will continue to review expert agency guidelines, as well as information from health officials and local authorities, to determine the appropriate scope of operations and allocation of resources necessary to navigate this dynamic and unprecedented environment.

Supply Chain
The Company maintains a network of strategic sourcing partners which includes material vendors and third-party manufacturers. The Company has experienced disruption and delays within its sourcing network related to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the Company is working to mitigate these pressures where possible, including activities to scale production in support of its growing brands, the Company may continue to experience certain disruption, delays, and/or capacity constraints related to the ongoing pandemic.

Fiscal year to date, the most significant macro-level supply chain impacts the Company has experienced are extended transit lead times and cost pressures related to container shortages, port congestion, and trucking scarcity that have caused shipping delays and a higher usage of air freight. The full effect and duration of disruptions and delays are not yet known, and there are no indicators signaling material improvement near-term. The Company will continue to monitor the situation closely and is actively working to navigate these pressures.

The Company's distribution centers, both owned and third-party facilities that are leveraged to service its operations, are currently in operation and supporting ongoing logistics. However, certain facilities are experiencing operational challenges that may cause further delays and cost pressures in future periods.

The Company's wholesale partners and third-party logistics providers are also experiencing capacity constraints and labor shortages, which are having and may continue to have an adverse effect on the Company's operations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In certain instances the Company may present financial measures that were not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (non-GAAP financial measures), including constant currency, to provide information that may assist investors in understanding its financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important indicators of its operating performance because they exclude items that are unrelated to, and may not be indicative of, its core operating results.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and may not be appropriate measures for comparing the performance of other companies relative to Deckers. For example, in order to calculate constant currency information, the Company calculates the current period financial information using the foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect during the previous comparable period, excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate hedges and remeasurements in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Further, the Company reports comparable DTC sales on a constant currency basis for DTC operations that were open throughout the current and prior reporting periods, and may adjust prior reporting periods to conform to current year accounting policies. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to represent, and should not be considered to be more meaningful measures than, or alternatives to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. To the extent the Company utilizes such non-GAAP financial measures in the future, it expects to calculate them using a consistent method from period to period.
