On Reports First Quarter 2024 Results

May 14, 2024
  • On kicks off the financial year 2024 with record net sales, surpassing CHF 500 million in a single quarter for the first time in its history. On's total net sales reached CHF 508.2 million, a growth of 20.9% year-over-year and by 29.2% on a constant currency basis. This achievement is led by exceptionally strong demand and momentum in On's direct-to-consumer ("DTC") channel, with DTC net sales growing in the first quarter by 39.0% year-over-year and by 48.7% on a constant currency basis.
  • The significant increase in DTC net sales, which now make up 37.5% of On's total net sales, and efficient inventory management, support On's further expansion of its premium gross profit margin to 59.7%. This is an increase from 58.3% in the previous year and is close to On's mid-term goal of exceeding 60%.
  • In line with On's goal of achieving substantial growth and continuous profitability expansion, the increased gross profit margin has resulted in a record high quarterly net income and significant adjusted EBITDA expansion, reaching CHF 91.4 million and CHF 77.4 million, respectively.
  • The continued high demand for the On brand provides further confidence in the stated goals for 2024 and beyond. On reiterates its full year expectation of at least 30% growth in net sales on a constant currency basis, which translates to reported net sales of at least CHF 2.29 billion at current spot rates. On further continues to expect a gross profit margin of around 60% and an adjusted EBITDA margin in the range of 16.0 - 16.5% for the full year 2024.
  • Supported by On athlete successes such as Hellen Obiri's second consecutive win at the marathon in Boston, On's increasing performance credibility continues to lead to significant market share gains with runners around the globe. At the same time, initial launches in newer verticals such as Tennis and Training are expanding On's addressable market on its mission to be the most premium global sportswear brand.

On Holding AG (NYSE: ONON) (“On,” “On Holding AG,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” “ours,” or “us”), has announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Martin Hoffmann, Co-CEO and CFO of On, said: “The first quarter was a very strong start to the year and a further step in the execution of our long-term strategy to be the most premium global sportswear brand. We are thrilled to have exceeded our expectations and surpassed the half-billion net sales mark in a single quarter. This serves as a validation of the strong demand we have experienced across all channels, regions, and product categories. Notably, we see the strength in our DTC channel as a clear marker of the ongoing strong brand momentum. The significantly increased DTC share has also allowed us to reach a very strong gross profit margin in the first quarter, close to the mid-term target we laid out a couple of months ago. Looking ahead, we're extremely excited for the months to come, filled with groundbreaking innovations, big partnerships, and the opportunity to have a notable impact in Paris this summer.”

Caspar Coppetti, Co-Founder and Executive Co-Chairman of On, said: “We are starting 2024 with very high confidence and a whole lot of excitement, achieving record net sales and profitability in the first quarter. Hellen Obiri's win at the marathon in Boston highlights our team's relentless dedication to delivering cutting-edge and sustainable innovations to athletes and consumers alike. These are the achievements that strengthen On's performance credibility, and they continue to fuel our increasing market share at key running routes around the globe. We are eagerly looking ahead to the remainder of the year with many more athlete success stories to come, as well as being laser-focused on the premium execution of our strategic priorities."

  • net income increased by 106.0% to CHF 91.4 million from CHF 44.4 million;
  • net income margin increased to 18.0% from 10.6%;
  • basic earnings per share (“EPS”) Class A (CHF) increased to 0.28 from 0.14;
  • diluted EPS Class A (CHF) increased to 0.28 from 0.14;
  • adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") increased by 27.0% to CHF 77.4 million from CHF 61.0 million;

Key highlights as of March 31, 2024 compared to December 31, 2023 included:

  • cash and cash equivalents increased by 18.2% to CHF 584.6 million from CHF 494.6 million; and
  • net working capital was CHF 562.9 million as of March 31, 2024, which reflects an increase of 13.5% compared to December 31, 2023.

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted basic EPS, adjusted diluted EPS, net working capital and net sales on a constant currency basis are non-IFRS measures used by us to evaluate our performance. Furthermore, we believe these non-IFRS measures enhance investors' understanding of our financial and operating performance from period to period because they enhance the comparability of results between each period, help identify trends in operating results and provide additional insight and transparency on how management evaluates the business. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted basic EPS, adjusted diluted EPS, net working capital and net sales on a constant currency basis should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS. For a detailed description and a reconciliation to the nearest IFRS measure, see the section below titled “Non-IFRS Measures.”

Outlook

On has experienced continued strong demand across channels, regions and product categories in the first months of its third full financial year as a public company. Delivering a further record quarter, On has for the first time surpassed CHF 500 million in net sales in a single quarter.

On continues on its Dream On strategy and looks to further increase the global awareness for the On brand, and build even closer connections with existing fans and new audiences globally through the power of a seamless omni-channel experience. Significant brand moments and exciting product launches in the coming months are expected to pave the way for the next growth phase on On's vision to be the most premium global sportswear brand.

The ongoing strong brand momentum provides On with confidence to reiterate its full year expectation of at least 30% growth in net sales on a constant currency basis, while remaining prudent in light of the dynamic macroeconomic and consumer environment. At current spot rates, this implies reported net sales of at least CHF 2.29 billion in 2024.

Considering the strength of On's DTC channel and commitment to ongoing profitability increases, On is further maintaining its ambition to reach a gross profit margin of around 60% and an adjusted EBITDA margin of 16.0 - 16.5% for the full year 2024.

Other than with respect to IFRS net sales and gross profit margin, On only provides 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 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 U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

Non-IFRS Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted basic EPS, adjusted diluted EPS, net working capital, and net sales on a constant currency basis 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. We believe that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, these non-IFRS measures enhance investor understanding of our financial and operating performance from period to period, because they exclude share-based compensation which is not viewed by management as part of our ongoing operations and performance, enhance the comparability of results between each period, help identify trends in operating results and provide additional insight and transparency on how management evaluates the business. In particular, we believe adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and net working capital are measures commonly used by investors to evaluate companies in the sportswear industry.

However, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted basic EPS, adjusted diluted EPS, net working capital, and net sales on a constant currency basis 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. The tables below reconcile each non-IFRS measure to its most directly comparable IFRS measure.

As noted above, we do 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. 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 press release.

Net sales on a constant currency basis is a non-IFRS financial measure and should be viewed as a supplement to our results under IFRS. Net sales on a constant currency basis represents current period results that have been retranslated using exchange rates used in the prior year comparative period. We provide constant currency percent change in net sales within our results, to enhance the visibility of the underlying growth rate of net sales, excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Basic EPS and Adjusted Diluted EPS

We use adjusted net income, adjusted basic EPS and adjusted diluted EPS as measures of operating performance in conjunction with related IFRS measures.

Adjusted basic EPS is used in conjunction with other non-IFRS measures and excludes certain items (as listed below) in order to increase comparability of the metric from period to period, which we believe makes it useful for management, our audit committee and investors to assess our financial performance over time.

Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period on a fully diluted basis. For the purpose of operational performance measurement, we calculate adjusted net income, adjusted basic EPS and adjusted diluted EPS in a manner that fully excludes the impact of any costs related to share-based compensation and includes the tax effect on the tax deductible portion of the non-IFRS adjustments.

The table below provides a reconciliation between net income to adjusted net income, adjusted basic EPS and adjusted diluted EPS for the periods presented:

Net Sales on a Constant Currency Basis

Net sales on a constant currency basis is a non-IFRS measure which represents current period results that have been retranslated using exchange rates used in the prior year comparative period. We provide constant currency percent change in net sales in our results to enhance the visibility of the underlying growth rate of net sales, excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Below, we show net sales split out by sales channel, geography, and product, and include the reported percent change and the constant currency percent change.

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 use 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.
