On Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results, and the Filing of Its Annual Report on Form 20-F for 2021

March 18, 2022
  • On experiences very strong consumer demand across all regions, channels, and product categories and delivers another record year with net sales of CHF 724.6 million, a gross profit margin jump to 59.4% and an adjusted EBITDA margin of 13.3%. This reflects On’s commitment to manage the company with a focus on long-term growth and profitability.
  • Net sales increased by 53.7% in the fourth quarter of 2021 and by 70.4% in fiscal year 2021, with the direct-to-consumer business growing 76.7% in the fourth quarter and Wholesale growing 39.3%. This validates the strength of On’s multi-channel distribution, where wholesale and DTC channels are highly complementary.
  • On delivers a fourth quarter gross profit margin of 58.5%, up from 51.7% in the fourth quarter of 2020, and adjusted EBITDA of CHF 11.2 million despite supply chain constraints, recurring COVID-19 restrictions in Europe, and a planned shift of On's spring-summer product season launch from the fourth quarter of 2021 to the first quarter of 2022.
  • Strong pre-orders coupled with increased visibility on the recovery of the supply chain environment provides even more confidence to meet higher than expected demand in the first half of 2022 and to return to hyper-growth in the second half. On is therefore updating its guidance for the full fiscal year 2022 and now expects net sales of at least CHF 990 million, adjusted EBITDA of CHF 130.0 million, and a corresponding adjusted EBITDA margin of 13.1%.
  • New partnership with world class athletes in our very successful On Athletics Club, a multi-year engagement with the historic track & field event Penn Relays, as well as being the official sponsor and outfitter of the Swiss and Norwegian Olympics team, further inspire the community and drive innovation.
  • On’s initial public offering in September 2021 resulted in additional awareness and brand momentum, further supporting On’s exceptional growth and empowering us to make fast progress towards our long-term brand mission: to ignite the human spirit through movement.

On Holding AG (NYSE: ONON) (“On,” “On Holding AG,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” “ours,” or “us”) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year, and that it has filed its annual report on Form 20-F (the "Form 20-F") for the year ended December 31, 2021, with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission.

Martin Hoffmann, Co-CEO and CFO of On, said: “A year is like a marathon race. The circumstances of the fourth quarter made the last miles even more challenging. But thanks to our whole team we were able to exceed our expectations for Q4 and to successfully finish the year with many new record numbers. Our financial results in the fourth quarter are further validation of the very strong, global demand for the On brand and our commitment to managing the company with a long-term, growth- and profitability-driven mindset. We achieved over 70% growth in Net Sales in 2021 while at the same time increasing our Gross Profit and adjusted EBITDA margin. We continued to see strong demand across all regions and product categories with North America and China showing exceptional growth rates. With 2022 now underway, we are even more confident and excited about the global growth opportunities and many new products that will allow our customers to move. Importantly, our production capacity in Vietnam has been back at 100% of the pre-lockdown commitments since December 2021. Overall, we are fast-tracking the capacity ramp-up plan this year, and leveraging our close relationship with all factory partners. This includes the expansion into Indonesia, where we just started production in a new facility to diversify our production network.”

David Allemann, Co-Founder and Executive Co-Chairman of On, said: “Global consumer demand continues to drive On’s strong growth. On is carried by a rapidly expanding movement of millions who run, explore, travel near and far, lift their spirit and dream on. This allows us to make fast progress towards our long-term mission: to ignite the human spirit through movement. World class Athletes continue to join On. We are honored to announce that two-time 5,000 meter World Champion Hellen Obiri is joining the On Athletics Club, our elite athlete team that is based and trained in Boulder, Colorado. At the same time, a record number of talent joined our team at On, as it surpassed the 1,000 team member milestone. Across the globe, people from over 65 nationalities and diverse backgrounds are the catalyst for relentless innovation and a unique culture at On."

  • net working capital was CHF 187.5 million which reflected an increase of 66.0%.

Outlook
We expect 2022 to be characterized by a significant expansion of our product offering in running, outdoor and lifestyle, which we call performance all day, through the launch of highly innovative and even more sustainable shoes, apparel items and accessories. O product offering expansion has been well received by our existing and new wholesale partners, reflected in very strong pre-orders for the first and second half of the year. Coupled with a significantly elevated customer base in DTC, we expect to reach a much larger global fan base, allowing them to move in On products and ignite the human spirit through movement. We further plan to bring a new level of brand experience to our fans through the expansion of our global network of flagship stores, by opening our first flagship stores in Europe and Asia outside China, while also increasing our presence in North America and China.

Since December 2021, our production capacity has returned to pre-lockdown commitment levels given the easing of restrictions in Vietnam and reduced holiday schedule of our factory partners. We continue to fast track the capacity ramp up plan this year, leveraging our close relationship with partners which includes an expansion in Indonesia, where we just commenced production in a new facility.

However, we expect that the following supply chain challenges in the fourth quarter of 2021 caused by COVID-19 will continue to have a short-term and transitory impact on our financial performance for the first half of fiscal year 2022 through: i) increased use of expensive air-freight to rebuild inventory levels after production shortages caused by COVID-19 induced closures of factories in Vietnam; and ii) higher sea and air-freight rates and warehouse labor expenses impacting gross margin and SG&A expenses. As a result, we still expect a headwind to our gross margins of approximately 700-800 basis points in the first half of 2022.

Based on the elevated inventory position, we expect to be able to meet a higher share of the demand from our customers in the first half of 2022 and to drive higher growth than previously expected. At the same time, the current situation in Vietnam provides even more confidence to have the right products to return to hyper growth in the second half of the year. Consequently, for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, we now expect net sales to exceed CHF 990 million, which represents year-over-year growth of at least 37% compared to 2021. Further, we expect that improved net sales will allow additional investments into the brand and the team while increasing both our adjusted EBITDA target to CHF 130m and our adjusted EBITDA margin to 13.1%.

The above outlook is based on current market conditions and reflects the Company’s current and preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions and customer demand, which are all subject to change. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of risks and uncertainties, including those stated below and in our filings with the SEC.

Non-IFRS Measures
Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, and Net Working Capital are financial measures that are not defined under IFRS.

We use these non-IFRS measures when evaluating our performance, including when making financial and operating decisions, and as a key component in the determination of variable incentive compensation for employees. Additionally, we believe these non-IFRS measures enhance an investor’s understanding of our financial and operating performance from period to period, because certain measures, such as adjusted EBITDA, exclude certain material items relating to share-based compensation and transaction costs related to the IPO which are not reflective of our ongoing operations and performance. In particular, we believe adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and Net Working Capital are measures commonly used by investors to evaluate companies in the sportswear industry.

However, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin or Net Working Capital should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS and may not be comparable to similarly titled non-IFRS measures used by other companies. For more information on these non-IFRS measures, please see the section captioned "Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures" included in the accompanying financial tables, which includes more detail on the IFRS measure that is most directly comparable to each non-IFRS measure, and the related reconciliations between these measures.

Other than with respect to IFRS net sales, we only provide guidance on a Non-IFRS basis. The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA to IFRS net income due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation. As a result, we are not able to forecast with reasonable certainty all deductions needed in order to provide a reconciliation to net income. The amount of these deductions may be material and, therefore, could result in projected net income being materially less than projected adjusted EBITDA. These statements represent forward-looking information and may represent a financial outlook, and actual results may vary. Please see the risks and assumptions referred to in the Forward-Looking Statements section of this news release.

Net Working Capital
Net Working Capital is a financial measure that is not defined under IFRS. We use, and believe that certain investors and analysts, use this information to assess liquidity and management of Net Working Capital resources. We define Net Working Capital as trade receivables, plus inventories, minus trade payables. This measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any standardized measure under IFRS. Other companies in our industry may calculate this measure differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
