10:47 EDTLULULululemon raises FY14 outlook as Q2 earnings beat analysts' estimates
Shares of Lululemon (LULU), a designer and retailer of yoga-inspired apparel operating primarily in North America and Australia, are sharply higher this morning after the company reported better than expected second quarter results and increased its fiscal year guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Lululemon reported Q2 earnings per share of 33c on revenue of $390.7M, beating analysts' consensus estimates of 29c and $367.8M, respectively. Total comparable sales, which includes comparable store sales and direct to consumer, were flat for the quarter on a constant dollar basis. Same-store-sales for the period fell 5% on a constant dollar basis and direct to consumer revenue increased 30% on a constant dollar basis, the company said. Chief Executive Officer Laurent Potdevin said the company is making "meaningful progress on building a scalable foundation for our next phase of global growth." Looking ahead, lululemon sees third quarter EPS to be in the range of 36c-38c on revenue of $420M-$425M, in line with analysts' estimates of 38c and $421.85M, respectively. The retailer anticipates total SSS for the quarter to be up in the low single digits on a constant-dollar basis. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After previously cutting its fiscal year 2014 EPS guidance to $1.71-$1.75 from $1.80-$1.90, lululemon this morning raised its normalized EPS view to $1.72-$1.77. The company also raised the bottom end of its revenue guidance to $1.78B-$1.8B from $1.77B-$1.8B; the company's revenue view had previously been lowered to $1.77B-$1.8B from $1.77B-$1.82B. For the fiscal year, analysts are expecting EPS of $1.74 and revenue of $1.78B. For FY14, the company sees total comparable SSS to be up in the low single digits on a constant-dollar basis. During Q2, lululemon founder Chip Wilson and Advent International entered into an agreement under which Wilson would sell half his stake to private equity firm Advent for $845M and Advent would receive two board seats and review the company's governance. On its Q2 earnings conference call, lululemon said that it is "happy" to have Advent back as a shareholder and is "looking forward" to having Advent's guidance going forward. The retailer forecast Q3 and FY14 gross margin of approximately 51% and said it is on track to open a store in Singapore in the fourth quarter.
