MOVADO GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying interim unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Movado Group, Inc. (the “Company”) in a manner consistent with that used in the preparation of the annual audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2014 (the “2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K”). In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal and recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and results of operations for the periods presented. The consolidated balance sheet data at January 31, 2014 is derived from the audited annual financial statements, which are included in the Company’s 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K and should be read in connection with these interim unaudited financial statements. Operating results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year.

 

NOTE 1 – RECLASSIFICATIONS

Certain reclassifications were made to prior years’ financial statement amounts and related note disclosures to conform to the second quarter fiscal 2015 presentation.  In the second quarter fiscal 2014 certain assets were reclassified from accounts receivable to inventory to conform to the second quarter fiscal 2015 presentation.

 

NOTE 2 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Accounting guidance establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value into three broad levels as follows:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 – Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly.

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs based on the Company’s assumptions.

The following tables present the fair value hierarchy for those assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis (in thousands):

The fair values of the Company’s available-for-sale securities are based on quoted prices. Time deposits are classified as short-term investments and held to original maturity. The hedge derivatives are entered into by the Company principally to reduce its exposure to the Swiss franc exchange rate risk. Fair values of the Company’s hedge derivatives are calculated based on quoted foreign exchange rates, quoted interest rates and market volatility factors. The assets related to the Company’s defined contribution supplemental executive retirement plan (“SERP”) consist of both employer (employee unvested) and employee assets which are invested in investment funds with fair values calculated based on quoted market prices. The SERP liability represents the Company’s liability to the employees in the plan for their vested balances.

The Company’s Wholesale segment includes the designing, manufacturing and distribution of quality watches, in addition to revenue generated from after-sales service activities and shipping. The Retail segment includes the Company’s outlet stores.

The Company divides its business into two major geographic locations: United States operations, and International, which includes the results of all other Company operations. The allocation of geographic revenue is based upon the location of the customer. The Company’s International operations were principally conducted in Europe, the Americas (excluding the United States), the Middle East and Asia and accounted for 18.9%, 11.6%, 8.1% and 7.0%, respectively, of the Company’s total net sales for the three months ended July 31, 2014. For the three months ended July 31, 2013, the Company’s International operations were principally conducted in Europe, the Americas (excluding the United States), the Middle East and Asia and accounted for 18.1%, 11.7%, 8.8% and 8.4%, respectively, of the Company’s total net sales. 

The Company’s International operations were principally conducted in Europe, the Americas (excluding the United States), the Middle East and Asia and accounted for 18.9%, 11.4%, 8.5% and 8.1%, respectively, of the Company’s total net sales for the six months ended July 31, 2014. For the six months ended July 31, 2013, the Company’s International operations were principally conducted in Europe, the Americas (excluding the United States), the Middle East and Asia and accounted for 18.3%, 11.5%, 8.9% and 8.3%, respectively, of the Company’s total net sales. Substantially all of the Company’s international assets are located in Switzerland and Asia.

NOTE 6 – DEBT AND LINES OF CREDIT

On July 17, 2009, the Company, together with Movado Group Delaware Holdings Corporation, Movado Retail Group, Inc. and Movado LLC (together with the Company, the “Borrowers”), each a wholly-owned domestic subsidiary of the Company, entered into an Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the “Original Loan Agreement”) with Bank of America, N.A. and Bank Leumi USA, as lenders (“Lenders”), and Bank of America, N.A., as agent (in such capacity, the “Agent”). The parties amended the Original Loan Agreement by entering into Amendment No. 1 thereto (“First Amendment”) on April 5, 2011 and Amendment No. 2 thereto (“Second Amendment”) on March 12, 2012 (the Original Loan Agreement, as so amended, the “Loan Agreement”). The Loan Agreement provides for a $25.0 million asset based senior secured revolving credit facility (the “Facility”), including a $15.0 million letter of credit subfacility, and provides that Borrowers are entitled to request that Lenders increase the Facility up to $50 million subject to any additional terms and conditions the parties may agree upon. The maturity date of the Facility is March 12, 2015.

Availability under the Facility is determined by reference to a borrowing base which is based on the sum of a percentage of eligible accounts receivable and eligible inventory of the Borrowers. $10.0 million in availability is blocked unless the Borrowers have achieved for the most recently ended four fiscal quarter periods a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of at least 1.25 to 1.0 with domestic EBITDA greater than $10.0 million. The Borrowers are not currently subject to the availability block. The availability block, if applicable, will be reduced by the amount by which the borrowing base exceeds $25.0 million, up to a maximum reduction of $5.0 million. Availability under the Facility may be further reduced by certain reserves established by the Agent in its good faith credit judgment. The Second Amendment reduced the Lenders’ total commitment under the Loan Agreement from $55 million to $25 million and consequently availability was correspondingly reduced. As of July 31, 2014, total availability under the Facility, giving effect to an availability block of $0, no outstanding borrowings and the letters of credit outstanding under the subfacility, was $20.7 million.

The initial applicable margin for LIBOR rate loans was 4.25% and for base rate loans was 3.25%. After July 17, 2010, the applicable margins decreased or increased by 0.25% per annum from the initial applicable margins depending on whether average availability for the most recently completed fiscal quarter was either greater than $12.5 million, or was $5.0 million or less, respectively. The First Amendment reduced the applicable margins for both LIBOR rate loans and base rate loans by 1.25% and the Second Amendment further reduced the applicable margins by 0.75%. Accordingly, as of July 31, 2014 and based on current availability, the applicable margins were 2.00% and 1.00% for LIBOR and base rate loans, respectively.

After the date (the “Block Release Date”) when availability under the Facility is no longer subject to any blocked amount, if borrowing availability is less than $12.5 million, the Borrowers will be subject to a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio until such time as borrowing availability has been greater than $12.5 million for at least 90 consecutive days.

After the Block Release Date, cash dominion will be imposed if borrowing availability is less than $10.0 million and will continue until such time as borrowing availability has been greater than $10.0 million for at least 45 consecutive days. As of July 31, 2014, the Borrowers were not subject to cash dominion nor do the Borrowers expect to be subject to such a requirement in the foreseeable future.

The Loan Agreement contains additional affirmative and negative covenants binding on the Borrowers and their subsidiaries that are customary for asset based facilities, including, but not limited to, restrictions and limitations on the incurrence of debt for borrowed money and liens, dispositions of assets, capital expenditures, dividends and other payments in respect of equity interests, the making of loans and equity investments, prepayments of subordinated and certain other debt, mergers, consolidations, liquidations and dissolutions, and transactions with affiliates. The Loan Agreement permits Borrowers to pay distributions as dividends and make share repurchases up to an aggregate of $150.0 million (less the amount of any charitable donations made by the Company which are permitted up to an aggregate amount of $14 million) and make acquisitions up to an aggregate of $50.0 million, as long as, at the time of such transaction, either (A) Borrowers have cash assets of at least $60.0 million with no revolver loans outstanding, or (B) (i) the

12


consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio is at least 1.25 to 1.00, (ii) availability is greater than $12.5 million and (iii) positive EBITDA plus repatriated cash dividends minus restricted payments are greater than $0. As of July 31, 2014, the Company was in compliance with these financial covenants and, therefore, is permitted to pay dividends and to repurchase shares. The Company presently expects that it will be able to pay dividends declared and repurchase shares through the remaining term of the Facility.

The Loan Agreement contains events of default that are customary for facilities of this type, including, but not limited to, nonpayment of principal, interest, fees and other amounts when due, failure of any representation or warranty to be true in any material respect when made or deemed made, violation of covenants, cross default, material judgments, material ERISA liability, bankruptcy events, material loss of collateral in excess of insured amounts, asserted or actual revocation or invalidity of the loan documents, change of control and events or circumstances having a material adverse effect. The borrowings under the Facility are joint and several obligations of the Borrowers and also cross-guaranteed by each Borrower. In addition, the Borrowers’ obligations under the Facility are secured by first priority liens, subject to permitted liens, on substantially all of the Borrowers’ U.S. assets (other than certain excluded assets).

A Swiss subsidiary of the Company maintains unsecured lines of credit with an unspecified length of time with a Swiss bank. As of July 31, 2014, these lines of credit totaled 5.0 million Swiss francs with a dollar equivalent of $5.5 million. As of July 31, 2013, these lines of credit totaled 10.0 million Swiss francs with a dollar equivalent of $10.8 million. As of July 31, 2014 and 2013, there were no borrowings against these lines. As of July 31, 2014, two European banks have guaranteed obligations to third parties on behalf of two of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries in the dollar amount equivalent of $1.4 million in various foreign currencies.

 

NOTE 7 – EARNINGS PER SHARE

The Company presents net income per share on a basic and diluted basis. Basic earnings per share are computed using weighted-average shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share are computed using the weighted-average number of shares outstanding adjusted for dilutive common stock equivalents.

The weighted-average number of shares outstanding for basic earnings per share was approximately 25,384,000 and 25,565,000 for the three month periods ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. For the three month periods ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, the number of shares outstanding for diluted earnings per share increased by approximately 290,000 and 281,000, respectively, due to potentially dilutive common stock equivalents issuable under the Company’s stock compensation plans and SERP.

For the three month periods ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, approximately 118,000 and 122,000, respectively, of potentially dilutive common stock equivalents were excluded from the computation of dilutive earnings per share because their effect would have been antidilutive.

The weighted-average number of shares outstanding for basic earnings per share was approximately 25,355,000 and 25,544,000 for the six month periods ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. For the six month periods ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, the number of shares outstanding for diluted earnings per share increased by approximately 330,000 and 315,000, respectively, due to potentially dilutive common stock equivalents issuable under the Company’s stock compensation plans and SERP.

For the six month periods ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, approximately 61,000 and 79,000, respectively, of potentially dilutive common stock equivalents were excluded from the computation of dilutive earnings per share because their effect would have been antidilutive.

 

NOTE 8 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

As of July 31, 2014, one bank in the domestic bank group had issued four irrevocable standby letters of credit in connection with a trademark license agreement, retail and operating facility leases to various landlords and for Canadian payroll to the Royal Bank of Canada. As of July 31, 2014, the Company had outstanding letters of credit totaling $4.4 million with expiration dates through April 30, 2016.

As of July 31, 2014, two European banks had guaranteed obligations to third parties on behalf of two of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries in the dollar amount equivalent of $1.4 million in various foreign currencies.

The Company is involved from time to time in legal claims involving trademarks and other intellectual property, contracts, employee relations and other matters incidental to the Company’s business. Although the outcome of such matters cannot be determined with certainty, the Company’s general counsel and management believe that the final outcome would not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE 9 – INCOME TAXES

The Company recorded a tax expense of $4.9 million and $4.3 million for the three months ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The effective tax rate was 28.7% for the three month period ended July 31, 2014 and 25.3% for the three month period ended July 31, 2013.

The Company recorded a tax expense of $8.3 million and $7.6 million for the six months ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The effective tax rate was 29.9% for the six month period ended July 31, 2014 and 26.7% for the six month period ended July 31, 2013.

The increase in the effective tax rate for both the three and six months ended July 31, 2014, as compared to the prior year periods, was due to the negative impact on earnings in tax jurisdictions with higher effective tax rates, as well as a benefit of $1.0 million primarily related to the release of liabilities for uncertain tax positions as a result of favorable U.S. and foreign audit settlements occurring in the three months ended July 31, 2013. In addition, the effective tax rate for both the three and six months ended July 31, 2014, was primarily impacted by the application of guidelines related to accounting for income taxes in interim periods, which requires the exclusion of certain companies with pretax losses from the estimated annual effective tax rate.

 

The effective tax rates for the three and six months ended July 31, 2014 and 2013 differ from the U.S. statutory tax rate primarily as a result of foreign profits being taxed in lower taxing jurisdictions partially offset by no tax benefit being realized on certain foreign net operating losses.

 

 

NOTE 10 – DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company accounts for its derivative financial instruments in accordance with guidance which requires that an entity recognize all derivatives as either assets or liabilities in the statement of financial position and measure those instruments at fair value. A significant portion of the Company’s purchases are denominated in Swiss francs. The Company reduces its exposure to the Swiss franc exchange rate risk through a hedging program. Under the hedging program, the Company manages most of its foreign currency exposures on a consolidated basis, which allows it to net certain exposures and take advantage of natural offsets. In the event these exposures do not offset, the Company uses various derivative financial instruments to further reduce the net exposures to currency fluctuations, predominately forward and option contracts. When entered into, the Company designates and documents these derivative instruments as a cash flow hedge of a specific underlying exposure, as well as the risk management objectives and strategies for undertaking the hedge transactions. Changes in the fair value of a derivative that is designated and documented as a cash flow hedge and is highly effective, are recorded in other comprehensive income until the underlying transaction affects earnings, and then are later reclassified into earnings in the same account as the hedged transaction. The Company formally assesses, both at the inception and at each financial quarter thereafter, the effectiveness of the derivative instrument hedging the underlying forecasted cash flow transaction. Any ineffectiveness related to the derivative financial instruments’ change in fair value will be recognized as other income in the Consolidated Statements of Operations in the period in which the ineffectiveness was calculated.

The Company uses forward exchange contracts to offset its exposure to certain foreign currency receivables and liabilities. These forward contracts are not designated as qualified hedges and, therefore, changes in the fair value of these derivatives are recognized in SG&A expenses and cost of sales, respectively, thereby offsetting the current earnings effect of the related foreign currency receivables and liabilities.

All of the Company’s derivative instruments have liquid markets to assess fair value. The Company does not enter into any derivative instruments for trading purposes.

As of July 31, 2014, the Company’s entire net forward contracts hedging portfolio consisted of 41.0 million Swiss francs equivalent for various expiry dates ranging through January 20, 2015.

NOTE 12 – OTHER INCOME

Other income for the six months ended July 31, 2013 consisted of a $1.5 million pre-tax gain on the sale of a building. The Company received cash proceeds from the sale of $2.2 million. Prior to the sale, the building had been classified as an asset held for sale in other current assets.

 

NOTE 13 – TREASURY STOCK

On March 20, 2013, the Board approved a share repurchase program under which the Company may purchase up to $50.0 million of its outstanding common stock from time to time, depending on market conditions, share price and other factors. This authorization expires on January 31, 2016, and the Company may purchase shares of its common stock through open market purchases, block trades

15


or otherwise. The shares will be purchased primarily to mitigate the dilutive impact of equity grants during the course of the next few years. Therefore, the Company does not expect the share repurchase program to have a significant impact on the weighted average number of shares outstanding. During the six months ended July 31, 2014, the Company repurchased a total of 193,073 shares of common stock at a total cost of approximately $7.7 million or an average cost of $39.80 per share. During the six months ended July 31, 2013, the Company repurchased a total of 98,633 shares of common stock at a total cost of approximately $3.3 million or an average of $33.56 per share, which included 12,000 shares repurchased from the Movado Group Foundation at a total cost of approximately $0.4 million or $34.43 average per share.

 

 

NOTE 14 – RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In May 2014, FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers.” This pronouncement affects any entity that either enters into contracts with customers to transfer goods or services or enters into contracts for the transfer of nonfinancial assets, unless those contracts are within the scope of other standards (for example, insurance contracts or lease contracts). The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. This pronouncement provides alternative methods of retrospective adoption and is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is not permitted. The Company is evaluating the effect of adopting this pronouncement, but does not expect adoption will have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including, without limitation, statements under Item 2 “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and elsewhere in this report, as well as statements in future filings by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), in the Company’s press releases and oral statements made by or with the approval of an authorized executive officer of the Company, which are not historical in nature, are intended to be, and are hereby identified as, “forward-looking statements” for purposes of the safe harbor provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections about the Company, its future performance, the industry in which the Company operates and management’s assumptions. Words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “targets”, “goals”, “projects”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “seeks”, “estimates”, “may”, “will”, “should” and variations of such words and similar expressions are also intended to identify such forward-looking statements. The Company cautions readers that forward-looking statements include, without limitation, those relating to the Company’s future business prospects, projected operating or financial results, revenues, working capital, liquidity, capital needs, plans for future operations, expectations regarding capital expenditures and operating expenses, effective tax rates, margins, interest costs, and income as well as assumptions relating to the foregoing. Forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, some of which cannot be predicted or quantified. Actual results and future events could differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements, due to several important factors herein identified, among others, and other risks and factors identified from time to time in the Company’s reports filed with the SEC including, without limitation, the following: general economic and business conditions which may impact disposable income of consumers in the United States and the other significant markets (including Europe) where the Company’s products are sold, uncertainty regarding such economic and business conditions, trends in consumer debt levels and bad debt write-offs, general uncertainty related to possible terrorist attacks, natural disasters, the stability of the European Union and defaults on or downgrades of sovereign debt and the impact of any of those events on consumer spending, changes in consumer preferences and popularity of particular designs, new product development and introduction, competitive products and pricing, seasonality, availability of alternative sources of supply in the case of the loss of any significant supplier or any supplier’s inability to fulfill the Company’s orders, the loss of or curtailed sales to significant customers, the Company’s dependence on key employees and officers, the ability to successfully integrate the operations of acquired businesses without disruption to other business activities, the continuation of licensing arrangements with third parties, the ability to secure and protect trademarks, patents and other intellectual property rights, the ability to lease new stores on suitable terms in desired markets and to complete construction on a timely basis, potential effects of economic and currency instability in Europe and countries using the Euro as their functional currency, the ability of the Company to successfully manage its expenses on a continuing basis, the continued availability to the Company of financing and credit on favorable terms, business disruptions, disease, general risks associated with doing business outside the United States including, without limitation, import duties, tariffs, quotas, political and economic stability, and success of hedging strategies with respect to currency exchange rate fluctuations.

These risks and uncertainties, along with the risk factors discussed under Item 1A “Risk Factors” in the Company’s 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K, should be considered in evaluating any forward-looking statements contained in this report or incorporated by reference herein. All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report or, in the case of any document incorporated by reference, the date of that document. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or any person acting on its behalf are qualified by the cautionary statements in this section. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or publicly release any revisions to forward-looking statements to reflect events, circumstances or changes in expectations after the date of this report.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the consolidated financial statements. These estimates and assumptions also affect the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. Estimates by their nature are based on judgments and available information. Therefore, actual results could materially differ from those estimates under different assumptions and conditions.

Critical accounting policies are those that are most important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and the results of operations and require management’s most difficult, subjective and complex judgments as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. The Company’s most critical accounting policies have been discussed in the Company’s 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

As of July 31, 2014, there have been no material changes to any of the critical accounting policies as disclosed in the Company’s 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Recent Developments

On August 26, 2014, the Board approved the payment of a cash dividend in the amount of $0.10 for each share of the Company’s outstanding common stock and class A common stock. The dividend will be paid on September 19, 2014 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 5, 2014. The decision of whether to declare any future cash dividend, including the amount of any such dividend and the establishment of record and payment dates, will be determined, in each quarter, by the Board of Directors, in its sole discretion.

On May 22, 2014, the Board approved the payment of a cash dividend in the amount of $0.10 for each share of the Company’s outstanding common stock and class A common stock.  

On March 28, 2014, the Company entered into an amended and restated license agreement (the "Amended License Agreement") with Lacoste S.A., Sporloisirs S.A. and Lacoste Alligator S.A. (together, "Licensor"). The Amended License Agreement amends and restates the original license agreement with the Licensor entered into on March 24, 2006 and extends the term from January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2022.

Overview

The Company conducts its business primarily in two operating segments: Wholesale and Retail. The Company’s Wholesale segment includes the designing, manufacturing and distribution of quality watches, in addition to revenue generated from after-sales service activities and shipping. The Retail segment includes the Company’s outlet stores. The Company also operates in two major geographic locations: United States operations and International, the latter of which includes the results of all other Company operations.

As of April 30, 2014, the Company divided its watch business into two principal categories: the luxury category and the licensed brands category. The luxury category consists of the Ebel®, Concord®, Movado® and ESQ® Movado brands.  Previously, the Company classified the Movado and the ESQ Movado brands together as a separate category referred to as accessible luxury. Watches in the licensed brands category include the following brands manufactured and distributed under license agreements with the respective brand owners: Coach®, HUGO BOSS®, Juicy Couture®, Lacoste®, Tommy Hilfiger® and SCUDERIA FERRARI®. These changes to the Company’s watch brand categories did not change the Company’s operating segments.

Net sales for the three months ended July 31, 2014 were $143.6 million, above the prior year period by $5.3 million or 3.8%. For the period ended July 31, 2014, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted net sales by $1.6 million when compared to the prior year period.

18


Net sales for the three months ended July 31, 2014 in the wholesale segment were $127.8 million, above the prior year period by $4.1 million or 3.3%.  The increase in net sales was driven by an increase in the United States location of the wholesale segment.

Net sales for the three months ended July 31, 2014 in the United States location of the wholesale segment were $62.4 million, above the prior year period by $4.4 million or 7.6%, primarily driven by sales increases in both the luxury and licensed brands categories. Net sales in the licensed brands category were above the prior year period by $2.3 million, or 10.8%, primarily due to sales increases in certain licensed brands, as a result of strong sell-through and expansion in the Company’s distribution channels. A net sales increase was recorded in the luxury category of $2.3 million, or 6.5%, primarily resulting from a sales increase in the Movado brand primarily due to strong sell-through, which included higher sales of the Movado BOLD and Sapphire watch collections, and the introduction of the SE Pilot watch collection in the second half of prior year, all of which were supported by the Company’s continued focus and investment in marketing and advertising. These increases were partially offset by sales decreases of the ESQ Movado brand as a result of the Company’s decision in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, to reduce the presence of ESQ Movado while expanding the Movado brand offering in certain retail doors.  

Net sales for the three months ended July 31, 2014 in the International location of the wholesale segment were $65.5 million, below prior year by $0.3 million or 0.5%, primarily driven by a sales decrease in the luxury brand category, partially offset by a sales increase in the licensed brands category. Net sales in the luxury brand category were below the prior year by $3.2 million, or 18.8%, primarily due to lower sales of Ebel watches, as a result of the timing of the new product launches in key markets. Net sales in the licensed brands category were above the prior year period by $2.9 million, or 6.2%, primarily due to higher sales of certain licensed brands, as a result of strong sell-through and expansion in the Company’s distribution channels and higher sales of Coach watches as a result of the repositioning of the Coach watches from a fine to a fashion watch brand, as well as geographic expansion. For the three months ended July 31, 2014, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted net sales by $1.6 million when compared to the prior year period.

Net sales for the three months ended July 31, 2014 in the retail segment were $15.7 million, representing an 8.3% increase from the prior year period sales of $14.5 million. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to new store openings. As of July 31, 2014, the Company operated 37 outlet stores, compared to 34 outlet stores at the end of the prior year period.

Gross Profit.  Gross profit for the three months ended July 31, 2014 was $77.6 million or 54.0% of net sales as compared to $74.8 million or 54.1% of net sales in the prior year period. The increase in gross profit of $2.8 million was primarily due to higher net sales for the current year period. The gross margin percentage for the three months ended July 31, 2014 decreased by approximately 10 basis points primarily due to an unfavorable impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates of approximately 30 basis points, partially offset by the positive impact of approximately 20 basis points resulting from leverage gained on certain fixed costs primarily due to the increase in sales volume year-over-year.

Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”).  SG&A expenses for the three months ended July 31, 2014 were $60.4 million, representing an increase from the prior year period of $2.7 million or 4.6%. The increase in SG&A expenses was attributed to higher compensation and benefit expense of $0.9 million primarily resulting from higher headcount, salaries, and stock awards expenses, partially offset by a decrease in performance-based compensation. Also contributing to the increase in SG&A expenses were higher trade show expenses of $0.8 million, primarily related to the Baselworld Watch and Jewelry Show. Additionally, the increase in SG&A expenses was due to the unfavorable effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates of $0.6 million, which was the result of the translation of foreign subsidiary results and the result of the weaker average U.S. dollar when compared to the prior year period, higher other selling expenses of $0.6 million, and higher rent related expenses of $0.2 million. These increased SG&A expenses were partially offset by lower marketing expenses of $1.0 million, primarily due to timing of advertisements.

 

Wholesale Operating Income.  Operating income of $13.8 million and $14.2 million, which includes unallocated corporate expenses as well as certain profits related to the Company’s supply chain operations, was recorded in the Wholesale segment for the three months ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The $0.4 million decrease in operating income was the net result of an increase in SG&A expenses of $2.2 million, partially offset by an increase in gross profit of $1.8 million. The increase in SG&A expenses was attributed to higher trade show expenses of $0.8 million, primarily related to the Baselworld Watch and Jewelry Show. Also contributing to the increase in SG&A expenses were higher compensation and benefit expense of $0.7 million primarily resulting from higher headcount, salaries and stock awards expenses, partially offset by a decrease in performance-based compensation. Also contributing to the increase in SG&A expenses was the unfavorable effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates of $0.6 million, which was the result of the translation of foreign subsidiary results and the result of the weaker average U.S. dollar when compared to the prior year period, higher other selling expenses of $0.6 million, and higher rent related expenses of $0.2 million.
