YETI Reports First Quarter 2023 Results

YETI Holdings, Inc. (“YETI”) (NYSE: YETI) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended April 1, 2023.

YETI reports its financial performance in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and as adjusted on a non-GAAP basis. YETI’s non-GAAP measures exclude the impact of the voluntary recalls, as well as certain other items. Please see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” and “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information” below for additional information and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures.

Matt Reintjes, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “While YETI’s first quarter results were impacted by the voluntary recalls, we continued to demonstrate our ability to execute against our strategic priorities while also adapting with urgency as challenges arise. So far in 2023, we expanded the breadth of our product portfolio through the successful introduction of our GoBox cargo family, built new color customization capabilities for our Yonder bottles, and continued our growth trajectory outside of the U.S. At the same time, our rapid collaboration, iteration, and development of a solution to the products affected by the voluntary recalls resulted in production commencing this month on our updated soft coolers and puts us on-track to deliver these popular products back to the market for the fourth quarter. We are incredibly proud of our team’s effort to drive this execution.”

Mr. Reintjes continued, “Even with the impact of the voluntary recalls, first quarter sales growth was positive and above our expectations, inclusive of the resiliency of our soft cooler products that remain in the market. Gross margin inflected positive year-over-year for the first time in seven quarters, and we remain bullish on future gains as freight tailwinds continue. We also remained firmly focused on investing back in the business, resulting in planned expense deleverage for the period as we keep our sights firmly on the future global opportunity for our brand. Finally, with a strong cash position and lower inventory levels, our balance sheet remains a source of strength and flexibility for YETI.”

First Quarter 2023 Results
Sales increased 3% to $302.8 million, compared to $293.6 million during the same period last year. As previously disclosed, our 2023 results were impacted by the stop sale of certain soft coolers included in the voluntary recalls.

Gross profit increased 5% to $161.9 million, or 53.5% of sales, compared to $154.9 million, or 52.7% of sales, in the first quarter of 2022. Gross profit was positively impacted by lower inbound freight, partially offset by higher product costs and the unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rates. Gross profit also included a $1.2 million, or 40 basis points, favorable impact from adjustments to inventory reserves related to the voluntary recalls.

Net income decreased 59% to $10.6 million, or 3.5% of sales, compared to $25.7 million, or 8.7% of sales in the prior year quarter.
