[Note: VFC fiscal year 2022 ended on April 2, 2022]
VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC), is a marketer of branded lifestyle apparel and related products under brands such as Vans, Timberland, and The North Face. The company’s stock has declined by 20% over the last twenty-one trading days (one month) and currently stands at around $28. VFC’s recent fiscal second-quarter results were not great but given market expectations, they were good enough. In Q2 FY23, the company’s revenues were down 4% year-over-year (y-o-y), missing analyst expectations marginally. It should be noted that the entirety of the revenue decline was due to the strong dollar rather than from an actual drop in units or prices. VFC’s overall sales continued to remain soft due to weakness in the Chinese market, where it has a significant presence. However, VFC reported double-digit sales growth in France, Spain, Italy, and Germany this quarter. That’s particularly impressive given how weak the European consumer and economic backdrop is perceived at the moment. The company saw its adjusted gross margin and operating margin decline to 51.5% (-240 basis points y-o-y) and 12.3% (-440 basis points), respectively. There is no doubt that margin pressures have taken their toll on VF’s operations, but this is an industry-wide problem and not only specific to VF Corp. In addition, the company’s adjusted earnings came in line with market expectations at 73 cents in this quarter, down 34% y-o-y.
