Management Discussion
  • Net sales in fiscal 2021 decreased by 13.4% to $3.45 billion, from $3.98 billion in fiscal 2020. The $534.0 million decrease was attributable to a $420.7 million, or 11.5%, decrease in Retail segment net sales and a $129.6 million, or 39.7%, decrease in Wholesale segment net sales, partially offset by a $16.3 million increase in Subscription segment net sales. Retail segment net sales for fiscal 2021 accounted for 93.6% of total net sales compared to 91.6% of total net sales during fiscal 2020.
  • The decrease in our Retail segment net sales during fiscal 2021 was due to a decrease of $372.6 million, or 10.6%, in Retail segment comparable net sales and a decrease of $48.1 million in non-comparable net sales, including the net impact of store openings and closings since the prior comparable period and the impact of foreign currency translation. Retail segment comparable net sales increased 5.7% at the Free People Group and decreased 7.0% at Urban Outfitters and 18.4% at the Anthropologie Group. Retail segment comparable net sales decreased in both North America and Europe. The decrease in Retail segment comparable net sales was driven by negative comparable store net sales due to mandated store closures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and lower store productivity for stores since opened, partially offset by double-digit growth in the digital channel. Negative comparable store net sales resulted from a decrease in store traffic, transactions and average unit selling price, while units per transaction and conversion rate increased. The digital channel net sales increase was driven by an increase in conversion rate and sessions, while average order value and units per transaction decreased. The decrease in non-comparable net sales was primarily due to the store closures and lower store productivity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic at the 46 new Company-owned stores opened and 22 Company-owned stores and restaurants closed since the prior comparable period.
  • The decrease in Wholesale segment net sales during fiscal 2021, as compared to fiscal 2020, was primarily due to a 40.1% decrease in sales for the Free People brand, due to most of the brand’s wholesale partners having a meaningful portion of their businesses closed during the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and lower customer demand once reopened. The segment decrease was also due to a decrease of $10.1 million in Anthropologie Home sales due to the brand’s exit of the wholesale business in the third quarter of fiscal
