Warnaco Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results

Monday, November 05, 2012

Warnaco Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results16:03 EST Monday, November 05, 2012 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- The Warnaco Group, Inc. (NYSE: WRC) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2012. Highlights for the third quarter: Net revenues declined 5%, to $611.5 million, compared to the prior year quarter Net revenues, in constant currency, were flat compared to the prior year quarter Income per diluted share from continuing operations was $0.98 compared to $1.13 in the prior year quarter Income per diluted share from continuing operations on an adjusted, non-GAAP, basis was $1.15 compared to $1.07 in the prior year quarter (which excludes restructuring expenses, pension income, tax related items and for the current quarter, acquisition costs relating to the previously announced transaction with PVH Corp.) The accompanying tables provide a reconciliation of actual results to the adjusted, non-GAAP, results. The Company believes it is valuable for users of the Company's financial statements to be made aware of the adjusted financial information, as such measures are used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the Company's continuing businesses on a comparable basis and to make operating and strategic decisions. In addition, the Company uses performance targets based, in part, on non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP operating income as a component of the measurement of certain employee incentive compensation. “Our third quarter results reflect the efforts of our team to efficiently operate our global business,” said Helen McCluskey, Warnaco's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Gross margin expansion and expense discipline more than offset a decline in net revenues, driven primarily by the impact of currency and macro challenges. As a result, we delivered an increase in operating margin and adjusted non-GAAP income per share from continuing operations compared to the prior year quarter. “Internationally, net revenues in constant dollars were up slightly, led by growth in Latin America and Asia offsetting a slight decline in Europe. Our direct-to-consumer net revenues, in constant dollars, were up 5% and comparable store sales for the quarter were relatively flat. We saw some progress in Europe, where direct-to-consumer net revenues rose 6%, in constant dollars, including positive comparable store sales for the quarter. “Looking forward, our reported 3Q results support our outlook for the balance of the year. As was announced last week, we entered into a merger agreement with PVH Corp. and look forward to the opportunities the transaction with PVH brings to our business. In the meantime, we intend to continue to operate the business effectively for the next several months as we work collaboratively with PVH to ensure a smooth integration,” concluded McCluskey. Fiscal 2012 Outlook For fiscal 2012, based on recent foreign currency exchange rates, the Company continues to anticipate: Net revenues, on a reported basis, will be down 2% to flat compared to fiscal 2011; and Adjusted, non-GAAP, diluted income per share from continuing operations (excluding restructuring expense, pension expense the Lejaby impairment charge, and acquisition costs relating to the previously announced transaction with PVH Corp.) in the range of $4.00 - $4.15. Schedule 7 of the accompanying tables provides a reconciliation of anticipated diluted income per share from continuing operations, on a GAAP basis of $2.97- $3.00 per diluted share (assuming minimal pension expense/income), to the adjusted, non-GAAP fiscal 2012 outlook above. Third Quarter HighlightsTotal Company Net revenues fell 5%, compared to the prior year period, to $611.5 million and were flat in constant currency. An increase in Swimwear Group net revenues, fueled by continued strength from Speedo®, was offset by declines in Sportswear and Intimate Apparel net revenues. Challenging macro-economic conditions and the unfavorable effects of fluctuations in currency exchange rates adversely affected the Company's net revenues. Gross profit decreased 5% compared to the prior year quarter, to $267.0 million, while gross margin increased 30 basis points to 44% of net revenues. A favorable product mix, moderation of product costs and efficient execution contributed to the improvement in gross margin. SG&A expense decreased 7% compared to the prior year quarter, to $197.8 million. As a percent of net revenue, SG&A declined 60 basis points to 32%, benefiting from disciplined expense control as well as the effects of fluctuations in currency exchange rates. Operating income was $66.7 million, or 11% of net revenues, compared to $64.8 million, or 10% of net revenues, in the prior year quarter. Income from continuing operations was $41.1 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, compared to $48.8 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. Income from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 includes a tax benefit of approximately $8.6 million, primarily associated with a reduction in the reserve for uncertain tax positions in certain foreign jurisdictions. On an adjusted, non-GAAP basis (excluding restructuring expenses, pension income, tax related items and for the current quarter, acquisition costs relating to the previously announced transaction with PVH Corp.), income from continuing operations was $48.1 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, compared to $46.1 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, in the prior year period. The effective tax rate in the quarter was 35% compared to 18% in the prior year quarter. The prior year quarter benefited from the $8.6 million tax benefit described above. On an adjusted, non-GAAP basis, the effective tax rate in the quarter was 32.7%; the prior year quarter's effective tax rate (excluding the $8.6 million tax benefit) was approximately 31%. The effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates for the quarter resulted in a decrease in net revenues, gross profit and SG&A by $30.7 million, $13.4 million and $13.2 million, respectively, compared to the prior year quarter and had no material impact on income from continuing operations. An additional discussion regarding the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates on operating results can be found in the Company's Form 10-Q, for the quarter ended September 29, 2012, which is being filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Balance Sheet Cash and cash equivalents at September 29, 2012 were $311.0 million, a 73% increase, compared to $179.3 million at October 1, 2011. The Company ended the quarter in a $56.3 million net cash positive position compared to a $78.0 million net debt position at October 1, 2011. Inventories at September 29, 2012 were $388.8 million, down $3.3 million (or 1%) compared to $392.1 million at October 1, 2011. The Company remains comfortable with the quality of its inventory.

The Company's forecasted normalized tax rates for both Fiscal 2012 and Fiscal 2011 exclude the effects of restructuring charges and other exits costs, pension income and certain tax adjustments related to either changes in estimates in prior period tax provisions or adjustments for certain discrete tax items. Adjustments for discrete items reflect the federal, state and foreign tax effects related to: 1) income taxes associated with legal entity reorganizations and restructurings; 2) tax provision or benefit resulting from statute expirations or the finalization of income tax examinations; and 3) other adjustments not considered part of the Company's core business activities. In addition, this adjustment for Fiscal 2011 excludes the effects of (i) a benefit of $10,900 recorded during the Three and Nine Months Ended October 1, 2011 associated with the recognition of net operating losses in a foreign jurisdiction resulting from the successful petition of that country's taxing authority; (ii) the exclusion of a $7,300 tax benefit recorded during the Three Months Ended October 1, 2011 related to the reduction in the reserve for uncertain tax positions in certain foreign tax jurisdictions; and (iii) the exclusion of a $1,300 tax benefit recorded during the Three Months ended October 1, 2011 relating to a change in various domestic and foreign tax provision estimates for fiscal 2010 following the filing of certain of the Company's tax returns during the Three Months Ended October 1, 2011.   f) The Company believes it is valuable for users of its financial statements to be made aware of the non-GAAP financial information, as such measures are used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the Company's continuing businesses on a comparable basis and to make operating and strategic decisions. Management believes such non-GAAP measures will also enhance users' ability to analyze trends in the Company's business. In addition, the Company uses performance targets based on non-GAAP operating income and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations as a component of the measurement of incentive compensation.   Schedule 6a   THE WARNACO GROUP, INC.SUPPLEMENTAL SCHEDULENET REVENUES ON A CONSTANT CURRENCY BASIS(Dollars in thousands)(Unaudited)     Three Months Ended September 29, 2012GAAP   Impact of Foreign   Non-GAAP (Note 1)As ReportedCurrency ExchangeConstant CurrencyBy Segment: Sportswear Group $ 337,377 $ (21,252 ) $ 358,629 Intimate Apparel Group 232,203 (8,527 ) 240,730 Swimwear Group   41,958     (961 )   42,919   Net revenues $ 611,538   $ (30,740 ) $ 642,278       By Region: United States $ 237,298 $ - $ 237,298 Europe 161,464 (19,292 ) 180,756 Asia 130,164 (2,113 ) 132,277 Mexico and Central and South America 58,812 (8,975 ) 67,787 Canada   23,800     (360 )   24,160   Total $ 611,538   $ (30,740 ) $ 642,278     Note 1: The Company is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by the Company when it translates its foreign revenues into U.S. dollars. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported operating results. As a supplement to the Company's reported operating results, the Company presents constant currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company uses constant currency information to provide a framework to assess how its businesses performed excluding the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Management believes this information is useful to investors to facilitate comparisons of operating results and better identify trends in the Company's businesses.   To calculate the increase in segment revenues on a constant currency basis, net revenues for the current year period for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable period of the prior year (rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period).   These constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the Company's operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.   Schedule 6b   THE WARNACO GROUP, INC.SUPPLEMENTAL SCHEDULENET REVENUES ON A CONSTANT CURRENCY BASIS(Dollars in thousands)(Unaudited)     Nine Months Ended September 29, 2012GAAP   Impact of Foreign   Non-GAAP*As ReportedCurrency ExchangeConstant CurrencyBy Segment: Sportswear Group $ 903,208 $ (43,573 ) $ 946,781 Intimate Apparel Group 667,206 (19,106 ) 686,312 Swimwear Group   220,576     (2,912 )   223,488   Net revenues $ 1,790,990   $ (65,591 ) $ 1,856,581       By Region: United States $ 733,534 $ - $ 733,534 Europe 415,504 (34,972 ) 450,476 Asia 384,359 (3,998 ) 388,357 Mexico and Central and South America 173,893 (24,269 ) 198,162 Canada   83,700     (2,352 )   86,052   Total $ 1,790,990   $ (65,591 ) $ 1,856,581     * See Note 1 on Schedule 6a.   Schedule 7   THE WARNACO GROUP, INC.SUPPLEMENTAL SCHEDULE - FISCAL 2012 OUTLOOK(Unaudited)   NET REVENUE GUIDANCE   Percentages   Estimated change in net revenues for Fiscal 2012 compared to levels in Fiscal 2011 GAAP basis -2.00 % to 0.00 %     EARNINGS PER SHARE GUIDANCE (based on recent exchange rates) U.S. Dollars Diluted income per common share from continuing operations       GAAP basis (assuming minimal pension expense / income) $ 2.97 to $ 3.00 Restructuring charges and other exit costs (a) 0.68 to 0.78 Adjustment of Lejaby loan receivable (b) 0.29 to 0.29 Acquisition expense (c)   0.06   to   0.08   As adjusted (non-GAAP basis) (d) $ 4.00   to $ 4.15     (a)   Reflects between $29 million to $33 million of estimated restructuring charges (net of an income tax benefit of between $10 million and $12 million) primarily related to the consolidation of certain international operations, the reorganization of the Company's management structure, the closure of facilities or retail stores, the exit of CKJ.com and the transition of the Company's CK/Calvin Klein "bridge" businesses back to Calvin Klein, Inc.   (b) Reflects $12.0 million of expenses related to the adjustment of the loan receivable in connection with the Company's Lejaby discontinued business. The reporting entity that recorded this adjustment has a 0% local statutory tax rate. Such adjustment was recorded in other income/expense within income from continuing operations.   (c) Reflects between $2.7 million to $3.4 million of acquisition costs (net of tax benefit of between $1.3 million and $1.6 million) incurred in connection with the Company's proposed merger with a wholly-owned subsidiary of PVH Corp.   (d) The Company believes it is useful for users of its financial statements to be made aware of the "As Adjusted" (non-GAAP) forecasted diluted income per common share from continuing operations as this is one of the measures used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the Company's continuing businesses on a comparable basis. The Company believes that this non-GAAP measure will also enhance users' ability to analyze trends in the Company's business. In addition, the Company uses performance targets based, in part, on this non-GAAP measure as a component of the measurement of employee incentive compensation. Management does not, nor should investors, consider this non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
