On August 22, 2023, DSG issued a press release announcing financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2023, ended July 29, 2023, and discussed the results on an accompanying earnings call on the same day. In the press release, DSG revealed that profitability for the second quarter was significantly lower than previously represented. Specifically, the Company's net income was $244 million (compared to the analyst consensus estimate of $338 million), earnings per share were $2.82 (compared to the analyst consensus estimate of $3.81), gross margin was 34.4% (compared to the analyst consensus estimate of 36.3%), and pre-tax margin was 10.2% (below the Company's previously-issued guidance of 11.7%). The Company also lowered its profitability guidance for the rest of fiscal 2023. 

During the accompanying earnings call, DSG's top officers revealed that demand for products in DSG's Outdoor segment had slowed faster than the Company had previously disclosed, resulting in excess inventory, the liquidation of which had negatively impacted the Company's profitability. 

On this news, DSG's stock price fell $35.51 per shar, or 24.15%, to close at $111.53 per share on August 22, 2023.
