Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In addition, we may make other written and oral communications from time to time that contain such statements. Forward-looking statements include statements as to industry trends, our future expectations, and other matters that do not relate strictly to historical facts and are based on certain assumptions of our management. These statements, which express management’s current views concerning future events or results, use words like “anticipate,” “assume,” “ believe,” “continue,” “estimate,” “expect,” “future,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “strive,” and future or conditional tense verbs like “could,” “may,” “might,” “should,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions or variations. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements include, without limitation, those described in the section entitled “Risk Factors” under Item 1A in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 and subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Moreover, such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements.

CROCS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

1. ORGANIZATION & BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Organization

 

Crocs, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively the “Company,” “Crocs,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) are engaged in the design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of footwear and accessories for men, women, and children.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for reporting on Form 10-Q. Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all information required for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, these condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our 2015 consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP 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 date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Transactions with Affiliates

 

The Company receives inventory count services from RGIS, LLC (“RGIS”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Blackstone Capital Partners VI L.P. (“Blackstone”), which currently beneficially owns 99.99% of the outstanding shares of Company’s series A convertible preferred stock (“Series A Preferred Stock”), which is convertible into approximately 15.8% of the Company’s common stock as of June 30, 2016. Two Blackstone representatives also serve on the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”). During the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, Crocs paid $0.4 million and $0.2 million, respectively to RGIS for services received.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Financial Instruments - Credit Losses

 

In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses of Financial Instruments, which changes the methodology for measuring credit losses on financial instruments and the timing of when such losses are recorded. This standard is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the adoption of this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Table of Contents

 

Stock Compensation

 

In March 2016, the FASB” issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation — Stock Compensation (Topic 718), which is intended to increase simplification of accounting for equity share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. This standard is effective for annual periods (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted.

 

Amendments related to the timing of when excess tax benefits are recognized, minimum statutory withholding requirements, forfeitures, and intrinsic value should be applied using a modified retrospective transition method by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to equity as of the beginning of the period in which the guidance is adopted. Amendments related to the presentation of employee taxes paid on the statement of cash flows when an employer withholds shares to meet the minimum statutory withholding requirement should be applied retrospectively. Amendments requiring recognition of excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies in the income statement and the practical expedient for estimating the expected term should be applied prospectively. An entity may elect to apply the amendments related to the presentation of excess tax benefits on the statement of cash flows using either a prospective transition method or a retrospective transition method. The Company is currently assessing the impact of adoption of this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Prepaid Stored-Value Products

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-04, Liabilities - Extinguishment of Liabilities (Subtopic 405-20): Recognition of Breakage for Certain Prepaid Stored-Value Products. This update aligns recognition of the financial liabilities related to prepaid stored-value products (for example, prepaid gift cards), with Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, for non-financial liabilities. In general, certain of these liabilities may be extinguished proportionally in earnings as redemptions occur, or when redemption is remote if issuers are not entitled to the unredeemed stored value. This standard is effective for annual periods (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted. At adoption, this update will be applied either using a modified retrospective transition method by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the fiscal year in which the guidance is effective or retrospectively to each period presented. The Company is currently assessing the adoption method and the impact that adopting this new accounting standard will have on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Leases

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which is intended to increase transparency and comparability of accounting for lease transactions. This update revises accounting for operating leases by a lessee, among other changes, and requires a lessee to recognize a liability to make lease payments and an asset representing a company’s right to use the underlying asset for the lease term in the balance sheet. The distinction between finance and operating leases has not changed and the update does not significantly change the effect of finance and operating leases on the statement of operations. This standard is effective for annual periods (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. At adoption, this update will be applied using a modified retrospective approach. The Company is currently assessing the impact of adoption of this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Financial Instruments

 

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01: Financial Instruments—Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. The pronouncement requires equity investments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investee) to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income, requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes, requires separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset, and eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost. These changes become effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. The expected adoption method of ASU 2016-01 is being evaluated by the Company and the adoption is not expected to have a significant impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Inventory

 

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11: Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory, which modifies existing requirements regarding measuring inventory at the lower of cost or market. Specifically, this standard eliminates the need to determine and consider replacement cost or net realizable value less an approximately normal profit margin when measuring inventory. This standard is effective prospectively after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that this pronouncement will have on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Debt Issuance Costs

 

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03: Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. ASU 2015-03 requires retrospective adoption and is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-15: Interest — Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30), which relates to the presentation of debt issuance costs associated with line-of-credit arrangements. This standard clarifies the guidance set forth in FASB ASU 2015-03, which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the debt liability rather than as an asset. The new pronouncement clarifies that debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements could continue to be presented as an asset and be subsequently amortized over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings on the arrangement. The Company considered this clarification in conjunction with the adoption of FASB ASU 2015-03, which occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2016. These pronouncements do not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements. In adopting ASU 2015-15, the Company elected to present debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements as an asset.

 

Share-Based Payments

 

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-12 in response to the EITF consensus on Issue 13-D. The ASU clarifies that entities should treat performance targets that can be met after the requisite service period of a share-based payment award as performance conditions that affect vesting. Therefore, an entity would not record compensation expense related to an award for which transfer to the employee is contingent on the entity’s satisfaction of a performance target until it becomes probable that the performance target will be met. The ASU does not contain any new disclosure requirements. This ASU is effective for all entities for reporting periods (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2015. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company adopted this pronouncement, which did not have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Revenue Recognition

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued their final standard on revenue from contracts with customers. The standard, issued as ASU 2014-09: Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) by the FASB, outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The core principle of the revenue model is that “an entity recognizes 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.” ASU 2014-09 becomes effective for reporting periods (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2017. Early application is permitted for reporting periods (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2016. This new standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that this pronouncement will have on its condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company has not yet selected a transition method or determined the effect of the standard on financial reporting once the standard is effective.

 

In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-12: Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients, which provides narrow scope improvements and practical expedients related to ASU 2014-09: Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). The purpose of ASU 2016-12 is to clarify certain narrow aspects of Topic 606 such as assessing the collectability criterion, presentation of sales taxes and other similar taxes collected from customers, noncash consideration, contract modifications at transition, completed contracts at transition, and technical correction. The standard has the same effective date as ASU 2014-09 described above. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that this pronouncement will have on its condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company has not yet selected a transition method or determined the effect of the standard on financial reporting once the standard is effective.

 

Other new pronouncements issued but not effective until after June 30, 2016 are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Asset Impairments

 

Crocs periodically evaluates all of its long-lived assets for impairment when events or circumstances would indicate the carrying value of a long-lived asset may not be fully recoverable. The following table summarizes retail asset impairment charges by reportable operating segment for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 related to certain underperforming stores that were unlikely to generate sufficient cash flows to fully recover the carrying value of the stores’ assets over the remaining economic life or lease terms of those assets:

Depreciation

 

Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method based on the assets’ estimated useful life, which typically ranges from two to five years. During the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, Crocs recorded $3.9 million and $4.3 million, respectively, in depreciation expense of which $0.4 million for both periods was recorded in ‘Cost of sales,’ with the remaining amounts recorded in ‘Selling, general and administrative expenses’ on the condensed consolidated statements of operations. During the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, Crocs recorded $7.6 million and $9.0 million, respectively, in depreciation expense of which $0.8 million and $1.0 million, respectively, was recorded in ‘Cost of sales,’ with the remaining amounts recorded in ‘Selling, general and administrative expenses’ on the condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, accumulated depreciation was $103.1 million and $97.7 million, respectively.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable represent amounts due from customers. Accounts receivable are recorded at invoiced amounts, net of reserves and allowances, and do not bear interest. Crocs uses its best estimate to determine the required allowance for doubtful accounts based on a variety of factors including the length of time receivables are past due, economic trends and conditions affecting the Company’s customer base, and historical collection experience. Specific provisions are recorded for individual receivables when the Company becomes aware of a customer’s inability to meet its financial obligations.

6. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

 

U.S. GAAP provides for a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to the valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. Level 1 inputs are quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date. Level 2 inputs are inputs other than quoted market prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.

 

The following table summarizes, for assets or liabilities measured at fair value, the respective fair value and the classification by level of input within the fair value hierarchy:

Non-Recurring Fair Value Measurements

 

The majority of the Company’s non-financial instruments, inventories, property and equipment, and intangible assets, are Level 3 assets and are not required to be carried at fair value on a recurring basis. However, if certain triggering events occur such that a non-financial instrument is required to be evaluated for impairment and the carrying value is not recoverable, the carrying value would be adjusted to the lower of its cost or fair value and an impairment charge would be recorded. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, Crocs recorded $0.6 million and $0.8 million, respectively, in impairment charges associated with the Company’s retail locations. During both the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, Crocs recorded $2.1 million in impairment charges associated with the Company’s retail locations. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, Crocs had no impairment charges related to inventories.

7. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

Crocs transacts business in various foreign countries and is therefore exposed to foreign currency exchange rate risk inherent in revenues, expenses, and monetary assets and liabilities denominated in non-functional currencies. In general, Crocs enters into foreign currency exchange forward contracts and currency swap derivative instruments to selectively protect against volatility in the value of non-functional currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities. As these derivative instruments do not qualify as hedging instruments under the accounting standards for derivatives and hedging, they are recorded at fair value as a derivative asset or liability on the balance sheet with their corresponding change in fair value recognized in ‘Foreign currency transaction gain (loss), net’ in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, Crocs had associated liability balances reported in ‘Accrued expenses and other liabilities’ on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. For purposes of the cash flow statement, Crocs classifies the cash flows from derivative instruments at settlement from undesignated instruments in the same category as the cash flows from the related hedged items, generally within ‘Cash provided by (used in) operating activities’.

 

The following table summarizes the notional amounts of outstanding foreign currency exchange contracts as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015. The notional amounts of the derivative financial instruments shown below are denominated in their U.S. Dollar equivalents and represent the amount of all contracts of the foreign currency specified. These notional values do not necessarily represent amounts exchanged by the parties and, therefore, are not a direct measure of the Company’s exposure to the foreign currency exchange risks.

8. REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITY & BANK BORROWINGS

 

Senior Revolving Credit Facility

 

In December 2011, Crocs entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”), with the lenders named therein and PNC Bank, National Association (“PNC”), as a lender and administrative agent for the lenders. On February 18, 2016, the Company entered into the Eleventh Amendment to the Credit Agreement which, primarily: (i) extended the maturity date to February 2021, (ii) resized the borrowing capacity of the facility to $75.0 million, (iii) amended certain definitions of the financial covenants to become more favorable to the Company, (iv) set the minimum fixed charge coverage ratio to 1.00 to 1.00 through the period ended June 30, 2016 and 1.10 to 1.00 thereafter, (v) set the maximum leverage ratio to 2.50 to 1.00 through the period ended June 30, 2016 and 2.00 to 1.00 thereafter, (vi) allows up to $50.0 million in stock repurchases to be made each fiscal year, subject to certain restrictions, and (vii) limited certain capital expenditures and commitments to an aggregate of $50.0 million per year. The Eleventh Amendment also changed the variable lending rates. For domestic base rate loans, including swing loans, the interest rate is equal to a daily base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.50% to 0.75% based on certain conditions. For domestic LIBOR rate loans, the interest rate is equal to a LIBOR rate plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 1.75% based on certain conditions.

 

On June 13, 2016, Crocs entered into the Twelfth Amendment to the Credit Agreement, which primarily increased the borrowing capacity of the facility from $75.0 million to $80.0 million. Under the terms of the Credit Agreement, the above financial covenants are only applicable when average borrowings exceed $20.0 million over a 30-day period, starting on the 15th day of the last month of each quarter.

 

As of June 30, 2016, the Company was in compliance with each of its financial covenants under the Credit Agreement, with actual calculations as follows: (i) the fixed charge coverage ratio (which is calculated as adjusted EBITDA plus fixed charges before tax for a rolling four quarters divided by fixed charges before tax plus interest for a rolling four quarters) was 3.41 to 1.00, compared to the minimum allowable amount of 1.00 to 1.00 (ii) the leverage ratio (which is calculated as consolidated indebtedness divided by adjusted EBITDA for a rolling four quarters) was 0.23 to 1.00, compared to the maximum allowable amount of 2.50 to 1.00 (iii) stock repurchases were zero, and (iv) capital expenditures and commitments were $24.0 million. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the weighted average/effective interest rate for outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement was 2.75% and 3.15%, respectively. The Company currently anticipates remaining in compliance with each of its debt covenant obligations for the foreseeable future.

 

As of both June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had no outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement. As of both June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had outstanding letters of credit of $1.3 million, which were reserved against the borrowing base under the terms of the Credit Agreement. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the

Table of Contents

 

Company had $78.7 million and $73.7 million, respectively, of available borrowing capacity. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, Crocs capitalized less than $0.1 million and $0.6 million, respectively, in fees and third party costs as deferred financing costs associated with the Credit Agreement and the negotiation of a new debt financing agreement that has not yet been executed. The short-term portion of these fees is recorded in the ‘Prepaid expenses and other assets’ account and the long-term portion is recorded in the ‘Other assets’ accounts.

 

Asia Pacific Revolving Credit Facility

 

On August 28, 2015, a Crocs subsidiary entered into a revolving credit facility agreement with HSBC Bank (China) Company Limited, Shanghai Branch (“HSBC”) as the lender. The revolving credit facility enables Crocs to borrow uncommitted dual currency revolving loan facilities up to RMB 40.0 million, or the USD equivalent, and import facilities up to RMB 60.0 million, or the USD equivalent, with a combined facility limit of RMB 60.0 million. For loans denominated in USD, the interest rate is 2.1% per annum plus LIBOR for three months or any other period as may be determined by HSBC at the end of each interest period. For loans denominated in RMB, interest equals the one year benchmark lending rate effective on the loan drawdown date set forth by the People’s Bank of China with a 10% mark-up and is payable on the maturity date of the related loan. The revolving credit facility can be canceled or suspended at any time at the discretion of the lender and contains provisions requiring Crocs to maintain compliance with certain restrictive covenants. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the revolving credit facility remained suspended at the discretion of the lender and Crocs had no outstanding borrowings or borrowings available under the revolving credit facility.

 

Long-term Bank Borrowings

 

On December 10, 2012, Crocs entered into a Master Installment Payment Agreement (“Master IPA”) with PNC in which PNC financed the Company’s implementation of a new ERP system, which began in October 2012 and was substantially completed in early 2015. The terms of each note payable, under the Master IPA, consist of a fixed interest rate and payment terms based on the amount borrowed and the timing of activity throughout the implementation of the ERP system. The Master IPA is subject to cross-default, cross-termination clauses, and is coterminous with the Credit Agreement.

 

As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015 Crocs had $3.7 million and $6.4 million, respectively, of debt outstanding under five separate notes payable, of which $3.4 million and $4.8 million, respectively, represent current installments. As of June 30, 2016, the notes bear interest rates ranging from 2.45% to 2.79% and maturities ranging from September 2016 to September 2017.

(1)         Carrying value represents the weighted average interest rate in effect at June 30, 2016 for all borrowings outstanding pursuant to each debt instrument, including any applicable margin. The interest rates presented represent stated rates and do not include the impact of the derivative instruments, deferred financing costs, original issue premiums or discounts, and commitment fees, all of which affect Crocs’ overall cost of borrowing.

 

(2)         Unused borrowing capacity represents the maximum available under the applicable facility at June 30, 2016 without regard to covenant compliance calculations or other conditions precedent to borrowing.

 

(3)         As the interest rate of each credit agreement is variable, typically based on either the base rate plus an additional margin or the daily LIBOR rates plus an additional margin, the estimated fair value of each debt instrument approximates its carrying value.

 

(4)          On February 18, 2016, the Company entered into the Eleventh Amendment to the Credit Agreement, which, among other things, resized the borrowing capacity of the facility to $75.0 million. On June 13, 2016, the Company entered into the Twelfth Amendment to the Credit Agreement, which increased the borrowing capacity of the facility to $80.0 million. As of June 30, 2016, the unused borrowing capacity was reduced by $1.3 million of outstanding letters of credit.

 

(5)         As of June 30, 2016, the Asia Pacific revolving credit facility remained suspended.

 

(6)         This amount is associated with short term vendor financing arrangements.

The total grant date fair value of RSAs vested during both the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was less than $1.0 million. The total grant date fair value of RSAs vested during the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was $0.1 million for both periods. As of June 30, 2016, Crocs had $0.2 million of total unrecognized share-based compensation expense related to non-vested, time-based RSAs, net of expected forfeitures. As of June 30, 2016, the unvested RSAs are expected to be amortized over the remaining weighted average period of 0.93 years.

 

The total grant date fair value of RSUs vested during the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was $0.9 million and $0.7 million, respectively. The total grant date fair value of RSUs vested during the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was $6.6 million and $7.1 million, respectively. As of June 30, 2016, Crocs had $23.2 million of total unrecognized share-based compensation expense related to unvested RSUs, net of expected forfeitures, of which $15.9 million is related to time-based awards and $7.3 million is related to performance-based awards. As of June 30, 2016, the unvested RSUs are expected to be amortized over the remaining weighted average period of 2.07 years, which consists of a remaining weighted average period of 2.01 years related to performance-based awards and a remaining weighted average period of 2.14 years related to time-based awards.

 

10. INCOME TAXES

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recognized income tax expense of $3.1 million on pre-tax income of $18.6 million, representing an effective income tax rate of 16.7%. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized income tax expense of $2.6 million on pre-tax income of $16.0 million, representing an effective tax rate of 16.0% During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recognized income tax expense of $6.0 million on pre-tax income of $31.7 million, representing an effective income tax rate of 19.0%. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized income tax expense of $2.9 million on pre-tax income of $13.9 million, representing an effective tax rate of 20.6%.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2016, the increase in effective tax rate is primarily due to an increase in profitability in certain jurisdictions, compared to the same period in 2015. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the decrease in the effective rate was driven primarily by a decrease in the relative proportion of losses in jurisdictions for which tax benefits cannot be recognized to global consolidated book income. The Company’s effective income tax rate, for each period presented, differs from the federal U.S. statutory rate primarily due to differences in income tax rates between U.S. and foreign jurisdictions. There were no significant or unusual discrete tax items during the quarter. The Company had unrecognized tax benefits of $5.2 million and $5.0 million at June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, and the Company does not expect any significant changes in this balance in the next twelve months.

Diluted EPS is calculated using the two-class method for stock options and RSUs and the if-converted method for Series A Preferred Stock. For the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, 0.6 million and 0.7 million stock options and RSUs, respectively, were excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS under the two-class method because the effect would be anti-dilutive. For the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, 1.0 million and 0.8 million stock options and RSUs, respectively, were excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS under the two-class method because the effect would be anti-dilutive. The Series A Preferred Stock shares were excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS under the if-converted method because the effect would be anti-dilutive. If converted, Series A Preferred Stock would represent approximately 15.8% of the Company’s common stock outstanding, or 13.8 million additional common shares, as of June 30, 2016. See Note 12—Series A Preferred Stock for further details regarding the preferred stock offering.

 

Stock Repurchase Plan Authorizations

 

Crocs continues to evaluate options to maximize the returns on its cash and maintain an appropriate capital structure, including, among other alternatives, repurchases of common stock. On December 26, 2013, Crocs’ Board approved the repurchase of up to $350.0 million of the Company’s common stock. The number, price, structure, and timing of the repurchases will be at the Company’s sole discretion and future repurchases will be evaluated by the Company depending on market conditions, liquidity needs, any restrictions under the Company’s debt arrangements, and other factors. Share repurchases may be made in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The repurchase authorization does not have an expiration date and does not obligate Crocs to acquire any particular amount of its common stock. The Board may suspend, modify, or terminate the repurchase program at any time without prior notice.

 

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, Crocs had no repurchases of shares under the publicly-announced repurchase plan. As of June 30, 2016, subject to certain restrictions on repurchases under the Company’s Credit Agreement, Crocs had $118.7 million remaining under the repurchase authorizations.

12. SERIES A PREFERRED STOCK

 

On January 27, 2014, Crocs issued 200,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock to Blackstone and certain of its permitted transferees, for an aggregate purchase price of $198.0 million, or $990 per share, pursuant to an Investment Agreement between Crocs and Blackstone, dated December 28, 2013, (as amended, the “Investment Agreement”). In connection with the issuance of Series A Preferred Stock, Crocs received proceeds of $182.2 million after deducting the issuance discount of $2.0 million and direct and incremental expenses of $15.8 million, which included financial advisory fees, closing costs, legal expenses, and other offering-related expenses. As of both June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, Crocs had accrued dividends of $3.0 million on the condensed consolidated balance sheets, which were paid in cash to holders of the Series A Preferred Stock on July 1, 2016 and January 4, 2016, respectively.

 

13. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Rental Commitments and Contingencies

 

Crocs rents space for its retail stores, offices, warehouses, vehicles, and equipment under operating leases expiring at various dates through 2033. Certain leases contain rent escalation clauses (step rents) that require additional rental amounts in the later years of the term. Rent expense for leases with step rents or rent holidays is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term beginning on the lease inception date. Deferred rent is included in the condensed consolidated balance sheets in ‘Accrued expenses and other current liabilities.’

 

The following table summarizes the composition of rent expense under operating leases for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and June 30, 2015:

Purchase Commitments

 

As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, Crocs had firm purchase commitments with certain third party manufacturers of $97.3 million and $158.2 million, respectively.

 

14. OPERATING SEGMENTS AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION

 

Crocs has three reportable operating segments based on the geographic nature of the Company’s operations: Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Crocs’ “Other businesses” category aggregates insignificant operating segments that do not meet the reportable segment threshold and includes manufacturing operations located in Mexico, Italy and Asia. The composition of the Company’s reportable operating segments is consistent with that used by Crocs’ chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) to evaluate performance and allocate resources.

 

20



Table of Contents

 

Each of the reportable operating segments derives its revenues from the sale of footwear and accessories to external customers as well as intersegment sales. Revenues of the ‘Other businesses’ category are primarily made up of intersegment sales. The remaining revenues for ‘Other businesses’ represent non-footwear product sales to external customers. Intersegment sales are not included in the measurement of segment operating income or regularly reviewed by the CODM and are eliminated when deriving total consolidated revenues.

 

Segment performance is evaluated based on segment results without allocating corporate expenses, or indirect general, administrative, and other expenses. Segment profits or losses include adjustments to eliminate intersegment sales. As such, reconciling items for segment operating income represent unallocated corporate and other expenses as well as intersegment eliminations.

The decrease in unallocated corporate and other operating loss of $11.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 is primarily associated with: (i) various cost reductions related to with the Company’s 2015 restructuring efforts (including a $3.8 million decrease in contract labor and professional fees and a $3.2 million decrease in employee compensation) and (ii) a $5.0 million decrease associated with nonrecurring disbursements made to invalid vendors. The decrease in operating loss of $20.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 is primarily associated with: (i) various cost reductions related to the Company’s 2015 restructuring efforts (including a $4.4 million decrease in employee compensation and a $4.1 million decrease in contract labor and professional fees) and (ii) a $5.0 million decrease associated with nonrecurring disbursements made to invalid vendors.

 

15. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

The Company is currently subject to an audit by U.S. Customs & Border Protection (“CBP”) in respect of the period from 2006 to 2010. In October 2013, CBP issued the final audit report. In that report CBP projects that unpaid duties totaling approximately $12.4 million are due for the period under review and recommends collection of the duties due. Crocs responded that these projections are erroneous and provided arguments that demonstrate the amount due in connection with this matter is considerably less than the projection. Additionally, on December 12, 2014, Crocs made an offer to settle CBP’s potential claims and tendered $3.5 million. Counsel has had initial conversations with the CBP, which has indicated that it believes the current offer is insufficient. Crocs plans to continue to have discussions with the CBP in an effort to resolve the claims. At this time, it is not possible to determine how long this process will take or to predict whether a negotiated settlement can be reached. Likewise, if a settlement cannot be reached, it is not possible to predict with any certainty whether CBP will seek to assert a claim for penalties in addition to any unpaid duties, but such an assertion is a possibility.

 

Crocs is currently subject to an audit by the Brazilian Federal Tax Authorities related to imports of footwear from China between 2010 and 2014. On January 13, 2015, Crocs was notified about the issuance of assessments totaling approximately $4.5 million for the period January 2010 through May 2011. Crocs has disputed these assessments and asserted defenses to the claims. On February 25, 2015, Crocs received additional assessments totaling approximately $10.4 million related to the remainder of the audit period. Crocs has also disputed these assessments and asserted defenses and filed appeals to these claims. On May 11, 2016, Crocs was notified of a decision rejecting the defense filed against the first assessment covering the period of January 2010 through May 2011. Crocs filed an appeal against that decision on June 8, 2016. It is anticipated that this matter will take up to several years to be resolved. It is not possible at this time to predict the outcome of this matter.

 

Where the Company is able to estimate possible losses or ranges of possible losses, the Company estimates that as of June 30, 2016, it is reasonably possible that losses associated with these claims and other disputes could potentially exceed related accrued liabilities of $4.9 million by up to $7.1 million.

 

Although Crocs is subject to other litigation from time to time in the ordinary course of business, including employment, intellectual property and product liability claims, Crocs is not party to any other pending legal proceedings that Crocs believes would reasonably have a material adverse impact on its business, financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

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

 

Business Overview

 

Crocs, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company,” “Crocs,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) are engaged in the design, development, manufacturing, worldwide marketing and distribution of casual lifestyle footwear and accessories for men, women, and children. We strive to be the global leader in the sale of molded footwear featuring fun, comfort, color, and functionality. The Company, a Delaware corporation, is the successor of a Colorado corporation of the same name, and was originally organized in 1999, as a limited liability company. Our products include footwear and accessories that utilize our proprietary closed-cell resin, called Croslite, as well as casual lifestyle footwear that use a range of materials. Our Croslite material enables us to produce innovative, lightweight, non-marking, and odor-resistant footwear. We currently sell our products in more than 65 countries through domestic and international retailers and distributors, and directly to consumers through our company-operated retail stores, outlets, webstores, and kiosks.

 

Since the initial introduction of our popular Beach and Crocs Classic designs in 2002, we have expanded our classic products to include a variety of new styles and products including clogs, sandals, wedges, flats, sneakers, and boots. Going forward, we are focusing on our core molded footwear heritage, as well as developing innovative casual lifestyle footwear. The broad appeal of our footwear has allowed us to market our products to a wide range of distribution channels, including family footwear stores, department stores, sporting goods stores and traditional footwear retailers, as well as a variety of specialty and independent retail channels, and via the internet. Our goal is to deliver world-class product assortments for the family with all of the comfort features and benefits for which Crocs is known. We have discontinued our non-core products in order to focus on growing our core-molded heritage category while developing more compelling casual footwear platforms.

 

We have expanded our core molded product line with the addition of dual density technology, warm lined styles, seasonal flips and slides. Licensed style partnerships from Disney, Marvel, Sanrio, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros., among others, provide popularity to our kids’ core line along with our kids-only product innovations, including lights, color-change materials, and interactive elements. We have extended our core product assortment with new styling including ‘built for her’ and ‘built for him’ silhouettes, which are offered in multiple color and graphic treatments.

 

A key differentiating feature of our footwear products is the Croslite material, which is uniquely suited for comfort and functionality. Croslite is carefully formulated to create extremely lightweight, comfortable, and non-marking footwear that conforms to the shape of the foot and increases comfort. Croslite is a closed-cell resin material, which is water resistant, virtually odor free and allows many of our footwear styles to be cleaned simply with water. As we have expanded our product offering, we have incorporated traditional materials, such as textile fabric and leather, into many of our styles; however, we continue to utilize the Croslite material for the foot bed, sole, and other key structural components for many of these styles.

 

As a global company, we have significant revenues and costs denominated in currencies other than the U.S. Dollar. Sales in international markets in foreign currencies are expected to continue to represent a substantial portion of our revenues. Likewise, we expect that our subsidiaries with functional currencies other than the U.S. Dollar will continue to represent a substantial portion of our overall gross margin and related expenses. Accordingly, changes in foreign currency exchange rates can materially affect both revenues and costs as well as the comparability of revenues and costs from period to period as a result of the impact of foreign currency translation adjustments.

 

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), we present current period “non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expenses”, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, within this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation (“MD&A”). Adjusted 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.

 

24



Table of Contents

 

We also present certain information related to our current period results of operations in this MD&A 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 U.S. GAAP. Constant currency represents current period results that have been restated using prior year average foreign exchange rates for the comparative period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

 

Management uses adjusted results to assist in comparing business trends from period to period on a consistent non-GAAP basis in communications with the board of directors (the “Board”), 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 to evaluate operating performance. We believe they also provide a useful baseline for analyzing trends in our operations. Investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Please refer to our ‘Results of Operations’ within this section for a reconciliation of adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses to U.S. GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses.

 

Financial Highlights

 

The following are significant developments in our businesses during the three months ended June 30, 2016:

 

·                  Revenue decreased $21.8 million or 6.3% in the three months ended June 30, 2016, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease in revenue was due to the net effect of: (i) a $23.7 million or 6.9% decrease associated with lower average selling prices, (ii) a $2.3 million or 0.7% increase associated with higher sales volumes, and (iii) a $0.4 million or 0.1% decrease associated with unfavorable exchange rates. Sales volumes for the quarter were negatively impacted by approximately $3.0 million as a result of the sale of our South Africa operations, which was completed on April 15, 2016.

 

·                  We sold 17.7 million pairs of shoes worldwide, an increase of 0.7% compared to the same period in the prior year.

 

·                  During the three months ended June 30, 2016, cost of sales decreased $1.6 million or 1.0% compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease in cost of sales was due to the net impact of: (i) a $2.6 million or 1.6% decrease in average cost per unit, (ii) a $1.1 million or 0.7% increase due to higher sales volumes, and (iii) a $0.1 million or 0.1% decrease due to the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of sales volumes on cost of sales was reduced by approximately $2.0 million as a result of the sale of our South Africa operations, which was completed on April 15, 2016.

 

·                  Gross profit decreased $20.2 million or 10.7% to $169.6 million and gross margin decreased 250 basis points, to 52.4%, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease in gross profit is due to the net impact of: (i) a $21.1 million or 11.2% decrease due to the combined impact of lower average sale prices and a lower average cost of sales per unit, (ii) a $1.2 million or 0.7% increase due to higher sales volumes, and (iii) a $0.3 million or 0.2% decrease due to the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation. Gross profit declined by approximately $1.0 million as a result of the sale of our South Africa operations, which was completed on April 15, 2016.

 

·                  Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses decreased $20.2 million or 12.0% for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease is primarily due to the combined impact of: (i) a $5.0 million or 3.0% decrease associated with nonrecurring disbursements made to invalid vendors, (ii) a $4.8 million or 2.8% decrease associated with lower bad debt expense, (iii) a $2.7 million or 1.6% decrease associated with implementation costs for the new ERP system, (iv) a $2.2 million or 1.3% decrease associated with reorganization charges, (v) a $1.8 million or 1.1% decrease associated with legal settlements, and a (vi) $1.5 million or 0.9% decrease associated with variable compensation. No other changes were individually significant.

 

·                  Net income attributable to common stockholders increased $2.0 million to $11.7 million compared to $9.7 million for the same period of 2015. Net earnings per common share (“EPS”) was $0.13 for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $0.11 for the three months ended June 30, 2015. These increases were primarily the result of a decrease in

selling general and administrative expense, and a decrease in restructuring expense associated with the completion of our restructuring efforts in 2015 resulting in zero restructuring costs in the current period compared to restructuring charges of $2.8 million in the same period of 2015. These cost savings were partially offset by a decrease in gross profit.

 

Future Outlook

 

During the remainder of 2016, we intend to continue our strategic plans for long-term improvement and growth of the business. Our plans comprise four key initiatives: (1) streamlining the global product and marketing portfolio, (2) reducing direct investment in smaller geographic markets, (3) creating a more efficient organizational structure by reducing excess overhead costs and enhancing the decision making process, and (4) closing or converting certain underperforming Crocs branded retail stores around the world.

 

We believe these changes will better position Crocs to adapt to changing customer demands and global economic developments. We are focusing on our core molded footwear heritage, as well as developing innovative new casual lifestyle footwear platforms. By streamlining the product portfolio and reducing non-core product development, we believe we will create a more powerful consumer connection to the brand.

 

We are refining our business model around the world, prioritizing direct investment in larger-scale geographies to focus our resources on the demographics with the largest growth prospects, moving away from direct investment in the retail and wholesale businesses in smaller markets and transferring significant commercial responsibilities to distributors and third party agents. Further, we intend to expand our engagement with leading wholesale accounts in select markets to drive sales growth, optimize product placement and enhance brand reputation.

 

Additionally, we have been addressing the declining collection rates we have experienced from our China operations by limiting or terminating our relationship with distributors who we have identified as being a significant credit risk.

 

As of June 30, 2016, we have terminated our relationship with multiple distributors in China and we expanded our relationship with existing business partners who are in a stronger financial position and who have a proven track record. We have also implemented a more restrictive credit policy for several China distributors to reduce our exposure in that market. We are unable to predict future economic conditions in China, but if economic conditions in China continue to decline, we may experience further declines in consumer demand in our China markets. As our China operations represent approximately 8.1% of our total revenue, the net impact of declining sales volumes in China could have a material adverse impact on our financial results in future periods.

Revenues. Revenue decreased $21.8 million or 6.3% in the three months ended June 30, 2016, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease in revenue was due to the net effect of: (i) a decrease of $23.7 million or 6.9% associated with lower average selling prices, (ii) an increase of $2.3 million or 0.7% due to higher sales volumes, and (iii) a decrease of $0.4 million or 0.1% associated with unfavorable exchange rates. Sales volumes for the quarter were negatively impacted by approximately $3.0 million as a result of the sale of our South Africa operations, which was completed on April 15, 2016.

 

Cost of sales. During the three months ended June 30, 2016, cost of sales decreased $1.6 million or 1.0% compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease in cost of sales was due to the net impact of: (i) a $2.6 million or 1.6% decrease due to lower average costs per unit sold, (ii) a $1.1 million or 0.7% increase due to higher sales volumes, and (iii) a $0.1 million or 0.1% decrease due to the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of sales volumes on cost of sales was reduced by approximately $2.0 million as a result of the sale of our South Africa operations, which was completed on April 15, 2016.

 

Gross profit. During the three months ended June 30, 2016, gross profit decreased $20.2 million or 10.7% and gross margin decreased 250 basis points, to 52.4%, compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease in gross profit is due to the net

impact of: (i) a $21.1 million or 11.2% decrease due to the combined impact of lower average sale prices and a lower average cost of sales per unit, (ii) a $1.2 million or 0.7% increase due to higher sales volumes, and (iii) a $0.3 million or 0.2% decrease due to the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation. Gross profit declined by approximately $1.0 million as a result of the sale of our South Africa operations, which was completed on April 15, 2016.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses. SG&A expenses decreased $20.2 million or 12.0% during the three months ended June 30, 2016, compared to the same period in 2015. This decrease was primarily due to the combined impact of: (i) a $5.0 million or 3.0% decrease associated with nonrecurring disbursements made to invalid vendors, (ii) a $4.8 million or 2.8% decrease associated with lower bad debt expense, (iii) a $2.7 million or 1.6% decrease associated with implementation costs for the new ERP system, (iv) a $2.2 million or 1.3% decrease associated with reorganization charges, (v) a $1.8 million or 1.1% decrease associated with legal settlements, and (vi) a $1.5 million or 0.9% decrease associated with variable compensation. All other changes were individually significant.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, our bad debt expense was $0.2 million and $4.9 million, respectively. Of this amount, our China operations recognized $0.2 million and $3.8 million in bad debt expense for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The decrease in bad debt expense associated with our China operations is primarily due to the implementation of a more restrictive credit policy for several China distributors in 2016, to reduce our exposure in that market.

 

In addition to these fluctuations, we have identified certain SG&A expenses that affect the comparability or underlying business trends in our condensed consolidated financial statements. The following table summarizes these expenses and describes the additional drivers of the decrease above by reconciling our U.S. GAAP SG&A expenses to non-GAAP SG&A expenses.

segment, that were unlikely to generate sufficient cash flows to fully recover the carrying value of the stores’ assets over their remaining economic life.

 

Foreign currency transaction gain (loss), net. The line item entitled ‘foreign currency transaction gain (loss), net’ is comprised of foreign currency gains and losses from the re-measurement and settlement of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in non-functional currencies and the impact of certain foreign currency derivative instruments. During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we recognized a net loss of $1.7 million compared to a net loss of $0.2 million on foreign currency transactions during the three months ended June 30, 2015.

 

Income tax expense. During the three months ended June 30, 2016, income tax expense increased $0.5 million compared to the same period in 2015, resulting in a 0.7% increase in the effective tax rate. The increase in the effective tax rate was driven primarily by an increase in profitability in certain jurisdictions, compared to the same period in 2015. Also affecting the rate were losses in certain jurisdictions for which tax benefits cannot be recognized because management has determined that it is not more likely than not that the losses will be realized. Our effective tax rate of 16.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2016 differs from the federal U.S. statutory rate primarily due to differences in income tax rates between U.S. and foreign jurisdictions.
