HAMILTON, Bermuda, Dec. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Signet Jewelers Limited ("Signet") (NYSE: SIG), the world's largest retailer of diamond jewelry, today announced its results for the 13 weeks ended October 30, 2021 ("third quarter Fiscal 2022").

"Thank you to our team for their dedication, agility and excellent execution again this quarter. Consumers are reacting favorably to our refreshed merchandise assortment and the significant enhancements we've made to our Connected Commerce and fulfillment capabilities. Additionally, we're happy to welcome Diamonds Direct to our team and look forward to their contributions to our Inspiring Brilliance strategy," said Signet Chief Executive Officer Virginia C. Drosos. "While uncertainties remain in the macro environment, our strategies are working as evidenced by strong conversion rates and higher average transaction value. We have built a healthy operating structure enabling transformative investments that are attracting new customers and driving loyalty. Our data driven customer insights and planning helped us secure earlier receipt of our holiday assortment and ensure no significant disruptions to our supply chain or labor needs."

"As we look forward to the balance of the year, we are raising our Fiscal 2022 guidance to reflect enhanced Connected Commerce capabilities and business momentum which continued through Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend," said Joan Hilson, Chief Financial and Strategy Officer. "The operating margin improvement in our guidance represents the ongoing structural changes in our business model, which include fleet optimization, transformation of financial services and significant cost savings. Collectively, these structural changes have enabled investments in marketing, talent and new capabilities while delivering more to the bottom line. Nonetheless, we remain cautious in our outlook for the balance of the year given uncertainties with COVID and the new Omicron variant, as well as potential shifts in consumer spending patterns"

By reportable segment:

North America

  • North America SSS increased 19.8% versus last year (39.2% versus 2 years ago), with broad-based category strength. Average transaction value ("ATV") increased 15.2% and the number of transactions increased 3.5% compared to the third quarter last year.
  • Brick and mortar SSS grew 21.5% versus last year (30.8% versus 2 years ago). eCommerce sales grew 14.9% versus last year (98.4% versus 2 years ago).

International

  • International SSS increased 8.8% versus last year (17.9% versus 2 years ago). ATV decreased 4.0% and the number of transactions increased 12.8% compared to the third quarter of last year.
  • Brick and mortar SSS grew 8.9% versus last year (10.4% versus 2 years ago). eCommerce sales grew 8.6% versus last year (72.0% versus 2 years ago).

GAAP gross margin was $575.6 million, or 37.4% of sales, up 380 bps versus the prior year quarter and up 630 bps versus the third quarter of FY20. The majority of gross margin rate improvement was driven by leveraging of fixed costs such as occupancy, further enhanced by merchandise and inventory strategies.

SG&A was $470.5 million, or 30.6% of sales, up 70 bps to the prior year quarter and leveraged 300 bps to the third quarter of FY20. The rate change compared to the prior year was primarily driven by higher advertising expense and store labor as staffing levels were constrained during the pandemic. Leverage compared to FY20 was primarily driven by improved labor productivity and more favorable agreements with Signet's consumer credit partners partially offset by increased advertising.

GAAP operating income was $106.9 million or 7.0% of sales, compared to $39.7 million, or 3.1% of sales in the prior year third quarter and operating loss of $39.9 million, or (3.4)% of sales in Q3 of FY20.

Non-GAAP operating income was $105.2 million, or 6.8% of sales, compared to $46.8 million, or 3.6% of sales in prior year third quarter and non-GAAP operating loss of $29.3 million, or (2.5)% of sales in Q3 of FY20.

The current quarter GAAP income tax expense was $9.1 million compared to an income tax expense of $21.3 million in the prior year third quarter.

GAAP Diluted EPS was $1.45 and $1.43 on a non-GAAP basis. GAAP and non-GAAP diluted EPS in the quarter includes the dilutive impact of the preferred shares in the share count based on the level of net income this quarter.

Balance Sheet and Statement of Cash Flows Highlights:

Total liquidity was $2.7 billion at quarter end, consisting of cash of $1.5 billion and availability on the revolving credit facility of $1.2 billion. Ending inventory was $2.1 billion, a reduction of more than $25 million to Q3 of FY21. Long term debt was $147.0 million, compared to $1.0 billion at the end of the prior year third quarter. Additionally, the Company has preferred share obligations of $651.7 million, compared to $633.9 million at the end of the prior year third quarter. Subsequent to the third quarter, the Company used approximately $515 million of cash to finalize the acquisition of Diamonds Direct.

Fiscal 2022 year to date, Signet has repurchased approximately 467,000 shares at an average cost per share of $88.04 or $41.1 million. As of October 30, 2021, there was $183.9 million remaining under Signet's share repurchase authorization.

(2) See description of non-GAAP measures below

Forecasted non-GAAP operating income provided above excludes potential non-recurring charges.  However, given the potential impact of non-recurring charges to the GAAP operating income, we cannot provide forecasted GAAP operating income or the probable significance of such items without unreasonable efforts. As such, we do not present a reconciliation of forecasted non-GAAP operating income to corresponding GAAP operating income.

The Company's fourth quarter and Fiscal 2022 Outlook is based on the following assumptions:

  1. While timing and magnitude is difficult to predict, Signet expects some shift of consumer discretionary spending away from the jewelry category toward experience-oriented categories during the fourth quarter.
  2. The Company has increased its gross cost savings expectations for Fiscal 2022 to $100 million to $115 million from $85 million to $105 million. Cost savings are expected to benefit both SG&A and gross margin.
  3. Signet has planned Fiscal 2022 capital expenditures in the range of $190 million to $200 million.
  4. The Company now expects to close approximately 75 stores in Fiscal 2022 and open approximately 85, primarily in highly efficient Banter by Piercing Pagoda formats.
  5. Signet's efforts to mitigate supply chain and retail labor pool disruption amongst the pandemic impacts have been effective thus far. Guidance assumes no material disruptions for the remainder of Fiscal 2022.
  6. Signet continues to put the health and safety of its employees and customers first and will close stores in the event that either is at risk; however, guidance does not contemplate large scale store closures resulting from COVID-19 variants, including uncertainty surrounding the effects of the most recent variant, Omicron.
  7. Continued uncertainty regarding macroeconomic factors exists, including but not limited to the magnitude and duration of COVID-19 resurgence through the variants, including Omicron, in key trade areas, government mandates, extended duration of heightened unemployment, organized retail crime, pricing and inflationary environment changes (including, but not limited to, materials, labor, fulfillment and advertising costs). Further, there can be no assurance that current results and trends will continue for the remainder of the fiscal year and such results and trends are not indicative of future performance. Please see disclosures within the Safe Harbor Statement for other risk factors.
  8. Recently acquired Diamonds Direct is now included in the fourth quarter and full year Fiscal 2022 guidance, from the date of acquisition on November 17, 2021.

Our Purpose and Sustainable Growth:

As a company with a purpose-inspired business strategy, Signet is committed to ongoing leadership in Corporate Citizenship & Sustainability and views ESG initiatives as an important growth driver. Signet views compensation, benefits, and career development opportunities as essential elements to a positive employee experience and team member retention.  The Company was recently named a Great Place to Work® for the second year in a row based on its strong employee Trust Index™ survey results.  Signet fully implemented its enterprise-wide wage increase to a minimum of $15/hour for all team members during the third quarter of Fiscal 2022.  Additionally, Signet announced holiday bonuses to our team members and will continue to invest in our greatest asset, our team members.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations

The following information provides reconciliations of the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("GAAP") to presented non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when reviewed in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, can provide more information to assist investors in evaluating historical trends and current period performance. For these reasons, internal management reporting also includes non-GAAP measures. Items may be excluded from GAAP financial measures when the Company believes this provides useful supplementary information to management and investors in assessing the operating performance of our business.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not superior to or as a substitute for the GAAP financial measures presented in this earnings release and the Company's consolidated financial statements and other publicly filed reports. In addition, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as or comparable to similar non-GAAP measures presented by other companies.

In discussing financial results, the Company refers to free cash flow that is not in accordance with GAAP and is defined as the net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property, plant, and equipment. Management considers adjusted free cash flow, defined as free cash flow excluding proceeds from the sale of the non-prime in-house finance receivables, as helpful in understanding how the business is generating cash from its operating and investing activities that can be used to meet the financing needs of the business. Adjusted free cash flow is an indicator used by management frequently in evaluating its overall liquidity and determining appropriate capital allocation strategies. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes.
