Crocs chief executive officer Andrew Rees stated: “We delivered a strong third quarter, exceeding the high end of our guidance, led by double-digit revenue growth in our Crocs brand supported by healthy full-price selling and industry-leading operating margins.

“Both our brands gained share during the back-to-school season. During the quarter, we took decisive action around HEYDUDE to accelerate our marketplace management strategy to ensure long-term brand health. As such, we are adjusting our full-year outlook to reflect this shift.”

The retailer has expected its fourth quarter revenues to decline approximately 1% to 4% and full-year revenue to grow approximately 10% to 11% against 2022.

It anticipated adjusted diluted EPS of $2.05 to $2.35 in Q4 FY23 and adjusted diluted EPS between $11.55 and $11.85 in FY23.
