VF Corp. (VFC) slips to a loss in Q4, misses estimates

VF Corporation (VFC) Q4 2020 earnings review

The top-line fell by 11% due to lower consumer demand as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and related government actions and regulations. Gross margin dropped by 150 basis points due to elevated promotional activity to clear excess inventory, partially offset by a favorable mix shift toward higher-margin businesses.

The company will not provide a financial outlook for full-year 2021 due to the uncertainty of the duration and severity of COVID-19. The first-quarter of 2021 revenues are expected to be down slightly more than 50%. Full-year fiscal 2021 free cash flow is expected to exceed $600 million.
