Capri Holdings Limited CPRI will likely record a drop from the top line when it releases FY2021 fourth quarter numbers on May 26, before the market opens. Zacks’ consensus estimate for revenue is set at $ 1,032 million, which suggests a decrease of 13.4% from the previous year’s figure.
Zacks’ consensus estimate for the loss for the quarter under review has improved by a dime over the past seven days to 1 dime. However, Zacks’ current consensus estimate points to a steep decline from adjusted earnings of 11 cents in the last year’s quarter.
Consensus estimates for revenue and earnings for fiscal 2021 are estimated at $ 3,892 million and $ 1.51 per share, respectively, indicating a decline of 30% and 61.2%.
In particular, this designer, marketer, distributor and retailer of branded clothing and accessories recorded a surprise revenue of 296.1% on average over four quarters. In the last reported quarter, the company’s bottom line surpassed Zacks’ consensus estimate by a significant margin.
Factors to note
In its third quarter fiscal 2021 earnings call, management warned that the short term would be more difficult as the resurgence of the virus resulted in additional restrictions and store closures. As of February 3, 2021, around 50% of stores were closed in the EMEA region, up from around 40% at the end of the third quarter.
We note that the company guided fourth quarter revenue at a rate equivalent to third quarter. He also predicted a decline in revenue for fiscal 2021 of around 30%. Again, the company is forecasting a marginal loss per share for the last quarter.
We note that Zacks’ consensus estimate for the fourth quarter revenue of the Michael Kors, Versace and Jimmy Choo brands is set at $ 724 million, $ 202 million and $ 81 million, indicating declines of 17%, 5.2% and 24.3%, respectively, year over year. .
Nonetheless, Capri Holdings has strengthened its position in the luxury fashion space. Remarkably, the company has deployed resources to expand its product offerings and upgrade the distribution infrastructure. This, along with cost containment, fleet optimization and improved e-commerce, bodes well. At the same time, higher full-price sales, strategic price increases, and savings in manufacturing costs likely benefited margins.
For the fourth quarter, management projected an improvement of approximately 100 basis points in gross margin through increased full-price sales and selective price increases. The company had guided the expansion of its gross margin by about 300 basis points for the year.
