Funko, Inc. ( FNKO Quick Quote FNKO - Free Report) is scheduled to report fourth-quarter 2021 results on Mar 3, 2022, after market close. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 44.4%. Trend in Estimate Revision
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter earnings is pegged at 23 cents per share, indicating a decline of 20.7% from 29 cents reported in the year-ago quarter.
For revenues, the consensus mark is pegged at $274.3 million. The projection suggests an increase of 21.1% from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. Let's take a look at how things have shaped up in the quarter. Factors to Note
Funko’s fourth-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from solid demand across product categories, strength in third-party e-commerce as well as product development initiatives. Also, focus on geographical expansions bode well.
Emphasis on direct-to-consumer channels by means of operational improvements (in domestic site) is likely to have driven sessions transactions per user and conversion rates in the fourth quarter. During the previous quarter, DTC channels contributed 11% to total net sales. With formation of new channel partnerships, the momentum is likely to have persisted in the fourth quarter as well. However, a rise in freight costs is likely to have hurt margins in the fourth quarter. This along with coronavirus-induced factory stoppages and supply chain disruptions is likely to have affected the company’s performance in the fourth quarter. What Our Model Says
