Shares of accessory and clothing retailer Kate Spade (KATE) are falling lower despite climbing higher during pre-market trading after teh company said it is "cautious" on fiscal year 2016. WHAT'S NEW: Kate Spade this morning reported second quarter adjusted earnings per share of 5c, surpassing analysts' consensus of 0c. The company's Q2 revenue was $266.0M, which beat analysts' consensus of $237.83M. Net sales for Kate Spade North America during the quarter were $208M, a 54.6% increase compared to last year, driven primarily by increases in Kate Spade New York. The retailer reported that its direct to consumer comparable sales growth for the quarter was up 30% and noted that it expects fiscal year 2014 direct consumer comparable sales growth of 15%-17%. Kate Spade also increased its full-year adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization outlook to $120M-$130M from $115M-$125M. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's conference call, the company said that its Juicy Couture wind-down is "substantially complete" and that it has liquidated virtually all of Juicy's inventory. Interest expense in FY14 is anticipated to be $32M-$37M and the company's normalized tax rate is foreseen to be 38%-40%. The retailer expects 80 new store openings compared to last year. Kate Spade says comps in the second half of 2014 are anticipated to be in the high single digit range. Still, Kate Spade said that it remains "cautious" on FY16 margin targets, and noted the "promotional" landcape in Q2. The company noted that it is not currently revisiting FY16 margin targets. It sees margins "slightly lower" than Kate Spade New York over time and expects Saturday to be a "compelling" business. The company said it expects to achieve an adjusted EBITDA margin target of 25% for the former Kate Spade Segment, but is assessing whether any short-term adjustment to the 2016 timeframe is warranted, adding that if a short-term adjustment is necessary, it expects the most likely adjustment would be a shift to 2017.

The company is currently pursuing various partnerships to improve operating leverage and expects to launch its UK e-commerce site in Q4.
