Fossil:

Beat earnings estimates. The watchmaker and accessories company reported earnings of a loss of 11 cents per share, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of 14 cents per share. Net loss for the quarter was $(5.4) million.

Beat revenue estimates. The company saw revenues of $689 million, also beating our consensus estimate of $653.23 million but decreased 7% year-over-year.

Global retail comps, including e-commerce sales, fell 6%, with declines in all product categories and all regions. In particular, watches declined 3%, but growth in connected watches were more than offset by a decline in traditional watches. Leathers and jewelry also declined compared to last fiscal year

For fiscal 2017, Fossil now expects net sales to decline in the range of 10.5% to 8.5%, with diluted earnings (loss) per share in the range of $(8.30) to $(7.75) per share.

“We’re pleased to deliver third quarter sales and earnings that aligned with our expectations for the quarter. While our business and the retail environment remain challenging, we are continuing to make progress against key strategic initiatives that tell us we’re on the right track. So far this year, we have tripled our wearables business and continue to see these amazing new products materially improve the trajectory of our watch business,” said CEO Kosta Kartsotis.
