COVID-19 Update

The Company continues to assess and modify its operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company will continue to review expert agency guidelines, as well as information from health officials and local authorities, to determine the appropriate scope of operations and allocation of resources necessary to navigate this dynamic and unprecedented environment.

Supply Chain
The Company maintains a network of strategic sourcing partners which includes material vendors and third-party manufacturers. The Company is actively experiencing disruption and delays within its sourcing network related to COVID-19 outbreaks in various countries. The Company is also experiencing capacity constraints and cost pressures related to container shortages and port congestion that are causing shipping delays and may lead to higher usage of air freight in future periods. The full effect of disruptions and delays are not yet known, but the Company will continue to monitor the situation closely and is actively working to mitigate these pressures where possible.

The Company's distribution center in Moreno Valley, California, as well as other third-party distribution facilities that the Company leverages to service its operations, are currently in operation and supporting ongoing logistics. However, these facilities have been operating and may continue to operate at limited capacity due to the enhanced health and safety measures that are in place. The Company anticipates operational challenges related to capacity constraints, as well as increased costs associated with warehouse employee safety and payroll expense. The Company's third-party logistics providers are also experiencing capacity constraints, which are having an adverse effect on our operations.

Retail Stores
Approximately 66% of the Company's global stores were open for the entire first quarter, which compares to approximately 20% in the prior year first quarter. Given the ongoing and uncertain pandemic conditions, which include meaningful local and regional differences in expert agency guidance and local authority mandates, the Company anticipates that temporary retail store closures and operating limitations in certain geographies may continue for at least a portion of the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 and potentially beyond.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In certain instances the Company may present non-GAAP financial measures, including constant currency, to provide information that may assist investors in understanding its financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important indicators of its operating performance because they exclude items that are unrelated to, and may not be indicative of, its core operating results.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and may not be appropriate measures for comparing the performance of other companies relative to Deckers. For example, in order to calculate constant currency information, the Company calculates the current period financial information using the foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect during the previous comparable period, excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate hedges and remeasurements in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Further, the Company reports comparable DTC sales on a constant currency basis for DTC operations that were open throughout the current and prior reporting periods, and may adjust prior reporting periods to conform to current year accounting policies. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to represent, and should not be considered to be more meaningful measures than, or alternatives to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. To the extent the Company utilizes such non-GAAP financial measures in the future, it expects to calculate them using a consistent method from period to period.

Conference Call Information

The Company's conference call to review the results for the first quarter fiscal year 2022 will be broadcast live today, Thursday, July 29, 2021, at 4:30 pm Eastern Time and hosted at ir.deckers.com. You can access the broadcast by clicking on the link within the 'Webcast' box at the top of the page.
