Warby Parker on Thursday joined the slew of retailers that have cut their financial forecasts for the year, even as it reported a narrower-than-expected loss in its fiscal second quarter and sales in-line with analysts’ estimates.
Chief Financial Officer Steve Miller said the eye glasses maker is facing an “uncertain macroeconomic environment.”
“We are taking a disciplined approach to managing costs to set us up for sustainable growth and profitability,” he said in a statement.
Warby shares fell around 1% in extended trading.
Here’s how the retailer did in its fiscal second quarter ended June 30 compared with what analysts were anticipating, based on Refinitiv estimates:
- Loss per share: 1 cent adjusted vs. 2 cents expected
- Revenue: $149.6 million vs. $149.5 million expected
For fiscal 2022, Warby is now calling for sales to be within a range of $584 million to $595 million, down from a prior range of $650 million to $660 million.
It sees its adjusted EBITDA amounting to about $22 million to $26 million, including a $7.5 million hit related to pandemic-related disruptions to its business.
