Management Discussion
  • VF reported a 12% decrease in revenues in Fiscal 2021 compared to Fiscal 2020, including a 2% favorable impact from foreign currency. The revenue decrease was primarily attributable to the negative impact of COVID-19, including closures of VF-operated retail and VF's wholesale customer stores, supply chain disruption and reduced consumer demand. Fiscal 2021 included a $142.0 million contribution from the Supreme acquisition, which closed on December 28, 2020. Fiscal 2021 also included an extra week when compared to Fiscal 2020 due to VF's 53-week Fiscal 2021.
  • VF reported a 23% increase in revenues in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021 compared to the Fiscal 2020 period, including a 4% favorable impact from foreign currency and a 7% contribution from the Supreme acquisition. The increase was driven by VF's largest brands, e-commerce growth and an increase in the Asia-Pacific region, which experienced a significant negative impact from COVID-19 in the Fiscal 2020 period. The fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021 also included an extra week when compared to the Fiscal 2020 period due to VF's 53-week Fiscal 2021.
  • Additional details on revenues are provided in the section titled “Information by Reportable Segment”.
