In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), we present future period guidance for "Non-GAAP operating margin." Non-GAAP results exclude the impact of items that management believes affect the comparability or underlying business trends in our condensed consolidated financial statements in the periods presented.

We also present certain information related to our current and future period results of operations through "constant currency," which is a non-GAAP financial measure and should be viewed as a supplement to our results of operations and presentation of reportable segments under GAAP. Constant currency represents current period results that have been retranslated using exchange rates used in the prior year comparative period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Management uses non-GAAP results to assist in comparing business trends from period to period on a consistent basis in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts, and investors concerning our financial performance. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and other users of our condensed consolidated financial statements as an additional tool for evaluating operating performance and trends. For the year ended December 30, 2022, management believes it is helpful to evaluate our results excluding the impacts of various adjustments relating to special or non-recurring items. Investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Full Year 2022 Outlook:

Non-GAAP operating margin:


GAAP operating margin

23 %

Non-GAAP adjustments, primarily associated with the HEYDUDE acquisition (1)

4 %

Non-GAAP operating margin

27 %


For the full year 2022, we expect to incur $55 million in selling, general and administrative expenses, primarily associated with the HEYDUDE acquisition and integration, and a total $75 million in cost of sales, primarily related to the write up of HEYDUDE inventory costs to fair market value at the close of acquisition.
