Discussion of Financial Results:

Victor Luis, Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc., said, “We are pleased with our third quarter performance, highlighted by increases in sales and gross margin on a constant currency basis in each of our three brands. Most notably, we again drove positive comps at Coach and generated a significant sequential comp improvement at Kate Spade with Nicola Glass’s new collection resonating with consumers globally. Further, we continued to make key investments across our portfolio and to realize meaningful synergies from the successful integration of Kate Spade as we harness the power of our multi-brand model. Taken together, adjusted EPS was in-line with our expectations for the quarter.”

Share Repurchase Authorization:

The Company announced its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $1 billion of its outstanding common stock. Pursuant to this program, purchases of shares of the Company's common stock will be made subject to market conditions and at prevailing market prices, through open market purchases. Repurchased shares of common stock will become authorized but unissued shares. These shares may be issued in the future for general corporate and other purposes. In addition, the Company may terminate or limit the stock repurchase program at any time.

Mr. Luis continued, “We’re also excited to announce the approval of a $1 billion share repurchase authorization, demonstrating our confidence in driving long-term, sustainable growth and value. Through this program we will optimize our capital deployment and enhance shareholder return, while maintaining our financial and strategic flexibility. Importantly, we remain committed to our longstanding capital allocation priorities supported by our strong balance sheet and free cash flow: investing in our brands and business, pursuing strategic acquisitions on an opportunistic basis and maintaining our dividend.”

Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook

The following fiscal 2019 outlook is provided on a non-GAAP basis and replaces all previous guidance.

The Company expects revenues for fiscal 2019 to increase at a low-to-mid-single-digit rate from fiscal 2018.

In addition, the Company projects earnings per diluted share in the range of $2.55 to $2.60. This guidance continues to reflect cost savings resulting from expected synergies related to the Kate Spade acquisition of $100 to $115 million as well as the impact of distributor consolidations and buybacks and systems investments. This guidance includes the expectation for net interest expense to be in the area of $50 million for the year. Further, the full year fiscal 2019 tax rate is projected at about 18%.

Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook - Non-GAAP Adjustments:

The Company is not able to provide a full reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP presented in this release and on the Company’s conference call because certain material items that impact these measures, such as the timing and exact amount of charges related to Integration and Acquisition and the costs associated with the Company’s ERP implementation have not yet occurred. Accordingly, a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort. Where possible, the Company has identified the estimated impact of the items excluded from its fiscal 2019 guidance.

This fiscal 2019 non-GAAP guidance excludes (1) expected pre-tax charges of approximately $35 million attributable to the Company’s ERP implementation efforts; (2) estimated pre-tax Integration and Acquisition charges of approximately $80 to $90 million (of which approximately $15 million is estimated to be non-cash); and (3) the impact of Tax Legislation of $9 million incurred in the second and third quarters of fiscal 2019. The Company continues to refine its integration plan and estimates for the ERP implementation efforts.

The Company operates on a global basis and reports financial results in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP.Percentage increases/decreases in net sales for the Company and each segment and gross margin for the Stuart Weitzman segment have been presented both including and excluding currency fluctuation effects from translating foreign-denominated sales into U.S. dollars and compared to the same periods in the prior quarter and fiscal year.The Company calculates constant currency revenue results by translating current period revenue in local currency using the prior year period’s currency conversion rate.

Guidance for certain financial information for the fiscal year ending June 29, 2019 has also been presentedon a non-GAAP basis.

Management utilizes these non-GAAP and constant currency measures to conduct and evaluate its business during its regular review of operating results for the periods affected and to make decisions about Company resources and performance.The Company believes presenting these non-GAAP measures, which exclude items that are not comparable from period to period, is useful to investors and others in evaluating the Company’s ongoing operating and financial results in a manner that is consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance and understanding how such results compare with the Company’s historical performance.Additionally, the Company believes presenting these metrics on a constant currency basis will help investors and analysts to understand the effect of significant year-over-year foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations on these performance measures and provide a framework to assess how business is performing and expected to perform excluding these effects.
