During the third quarter, the company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock. Deckers said that while it had to pause share repurchase activity at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, it intends to recommence share repurchase under the existing outstanding authorization in future periods.
As the pandemic continues, the company said it will not be providing full year guidance for fiscal year 2021.
"The company continues to modify and evolve its operations in response to the Covid-19 pandemic," Deckers said.
"The company will continue to review expert agency guidelines, as well as information from health officials and local authorities, while assessing and evolving the appropriate scope of operations and allocation of resources necessary to navigate this dynamic and unprecedented environment."
