  • 3Q net sales increase 3 percent with constant-currency organic sales up 1%; Activewear and International sales increase, while Innerwear sales decrease
  • 3Q GAAP EPS was $0.47 and pro forma adjusted EPS excluding actions was $0.55
  • Company uses free-cash generation to pay down debt and improve debt leverage
  • Company issues 4Q guidance for GAAP EPS of $0.42 to $0.46 and adjusted EPS excluding actions of $0.46 to $0.50

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 2018-- HanesBrands (NYSE: HBI), a leading global marketer of everyday basic apparel under world-class brands, today announced third-quarter 2018 results, including a $14 million charge related to a retailer bankruptcy that masks underlying performance.

Third-quarter net sales increased 3 percent to $1.85 billion, and constant-currency organic sales, which increased for the fifth consecutive quarter, were up more than 1 percent. Activewear and International sales increased 7 percent and 11 percent, respectively, benefiting from strong Champion growth, while Innerwear sales decreased 7 percent.

In the quarter ended Sept. 29, 2018, the company took a bad-debt reserve charge of $14 million related to the bankruptcy filing of Sears Holdings Corporation. As a result, GAAP operating profit of $257 million declined 1 percent and GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.47. Adjusted operating profit excluding actions of $278 million increased 1 percent, and adjusted EPS excluding actions was $0.52.

When excluding the bankruptcy charge, pro forma adjusted operating profit excluding actions increased 6 percent to $292 million, and pro forma adjusted EPS excluding actions was $0.55. (See Table 5 and the Note on Adjusted Measures and Reconciliation to GAAP Measures later in this news release for additional discussion and details.)

“Our overall results were good and in line with our guidance on a pro forma basis. We made progress on our long-term goals of continued organic sales growth, higher profit margins, and reduced debt leverage,” said Hanes Chief Executive Officer Gerald W. Evans Jr. “We are diligently focused on delivering the fourth quarter, and we are off to a strong start in October with solid order bookings across our segments.”

There are several factors supporting a confident outlook, Evans noted. “Global Champion growth outside the mass channel, which was up 40 percent in constant currency in the quarter, is expected to remain strong,” he said. “And while we were disappointed that Innerwear sales were lower than expected in the third quarter, consumer demand was strong, and we believe that continued underlying strength supports our outlook for improvement.”

Callouts for Third-Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Continued Double-Digit Growth in Champion Drives Organic Growth. Champion sales increased 30 percent in the third quarter on a constant-currency basis with strong double-digit growth in the United States, Asia and Europe on top of strong double-digit growth in the year-ago quarter. Excluding the mass channel, global Champion constant-currency sales increased 40 percent.

Consumer-Directed Channels Contribute to Sales Growth. Third-quarter net sales benefited from a 15 percent increase in the consumer-directed channels of online and company-owned retail stores, which accounted for 21 percent of total company sales in the quarter.

Underlying Operating Profit Margin Increases as Expected. While operating margin declined 50 basis points to 13.9 percent on a reported GAAP basis, the pro forma adjusted operating margin excluding the bankruptcy charge increased 50 basis points to 15.8 percent as a result of organic growth, pricing actions, integration synergies and new acquisition contributions that more than offset increased brand and growth investment.

Net Debt Reduced and Debt Leverage Lowered. Hanes used its free-cash generation to pay down debt by approximately $115 million in the third quarter, lowering its debt leverage to 3.8 times on a net debt-to-EBITDA basis.

Business Segment Summaries

Innerwear Segment Results Affected by Order Imbalance. U.S. Innerwear segment sales decreased 7 percent, while operating profit decreased 14 percent. The results were lower than expected, primarily as a result of slower replenishment orders compared with strong point-of-sale trends and higher raw material costs.

Innerwear basics sales decreased, with socks and panties sales down and men’s underwear sales up. All three categories had point-of-sale growth. Products featuring innovation now account for 20 percent of basics sales.

Innerwear intimates sales decreased, although the ongoing implementation of revitalization plans for shapewear and bras are beginning to show progress. New product designs and innovation will continue to be rolled out through the first half of 2019.

Activewear Segment Sales and Profits Increase on Champion Growth and Acquisition Benefits. U.S. Activewear segment sales and operating profit each increased 7 percent. Organic sales increased 4 percent, while the Alternative Apparel acquisition also contributed to growth.

Champion sales growth was broad-based, increasing across channels, including sporting goods retailers, mid-tier department stores, college bookstores, mass merchants, online, and company-owned stores.

Net sales for Alternative Apparel, acquired in October 2017, were $16 million.

Strong International Segment Performance Drivers Include Organic Growth, Acquisitions and Synergies. Despite adverse currency exchange rates, International segment sales increased 11 percent and operating profit increased 27 percent. In constant currency, sales increased 15 percent and operating profit increased 31 percent.

Constant-currency organic sales increased 10 percent, primarily on the strength of Champion growth in Europe and Asia. Net sales for Australia-based Bras N Things, acquired in February 2018, were $32 million.

The segment’s operating margin of 16.1 percent increased 200 basis points over the year-ago quarter, benefiting from organic growth, contributions from Bras N Things, and integration synergies from past acquisitions.

2018 Financial Guidance

Hanes has updated full-year financial guidance for 2018 to reflect year-to-date results, the bankruptcy of Sears Holdings, the strengthening dollar, and other factors. After the effect of the Sears bankruptcy and negative currency trends since the company’s prior outlook, the updated guidance represents a tightening of previous ranges for net sales, operating profit and EPS.

The company expects full-year 2018 net sales of $6.735 billion to $6.775 billion, GAAP operating profit of $860 million to $875 million, adjusted operating profit excluding actions of $940 million to $955 million, GAAP EPS for continuing operations of $1.50 to $1.54, adjusted EPS excluding actions for continuing operations of $1.69 to $1.73, and net cash from operations of $625 million to $675 million. The EPS ranges include approximately $0.05 of adverse effect from the Sears Holdings bankruptcy and currency versus prior guidance.

In addition to the $14 million Sears Holdings bad-debt charge, the updated guidance assumes no sales or profit contribution in the fourth quarter from Sears, which accounted for approximately 1 percent of total year-to-date company sales. Prior to the bankruptcy filing, Hanes had expected fourth-quarter sales of approximately $15 million and operating profit of approximately $5 million from Sears.

Compared with the company’s previous outlook for foreign exchange rates, the company expects the strengthening dollar to have a greater negative currency effect on net sales. For the fourth quarter, the company expects currency exchange rates to reduce sales by $29 million year over year, up from the previous outlook of a $12 million headwind.

The company’s updated operating cash flow guidance also includes incremental inventory investment to support accelerating Champion growth.

Updated full-year interest expense and other guidance is $221 million, up from previous guidance of $207 million primarily as a result of the yearlong effect of higher interest rates on variable-rate debt. The company expects the 2018 full-year tax rate to approach 15 percent, down from previous guidance of approximately 16 percent.

Fourth-Quarter Guidance. The company expects fourth-quarter net sales of approximately $1.70 billion to $1.74 billion. The midpoint of guidance represents approximately 5 percent growth versus the fourth-quarter a year ago and organic constant currency growth of approximately 3.5 percent.

The company expects Innerwear sales in the quarter to be comparable to a year ago, representing a significant improvement from the third-quarter year-over-year results. The outlook is based on strong fundamentals, early-quarter order bookings, and an expectation for shipments to more closely match strong consumer purchase rates that began in the third quarter.

Strong Champion growth is expected to continue to drive increased sales in the Activewear and International segments in the fourth quarter. Based on strong order bookings through the first half of 2019, Champion growth is expected to continue at a significant double-digit rate.

Fourth-quarter GAAP operating profit is expected to be in the range of $236 million to $251 million, and GAAP EPS is expected to be $0.42 to $0.46.

Fourth-quarter adjusted operating profit excluding actions is expected to be in the range of $251 million to $266 million. Adjusted EPS excluding actions for the quarter is expected to be $0.46 to $0.50.

The company expects pretax charges related to acquisition integration and other actions in the fourth quarter of approximately $15 million.

Hanes has updated its quarterly frequently-asked-questions document, which is available at www.Hanes.com/faq.

Note on Adjusted Measures and Reconciliation to GAAP Measures

To supplement financial guidance prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the company provides quarterly and full-year results and guidance concerning certain non‐GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EPS, adjusted net income, adjusted operating profit (and margin), adjusted SG&A, adjusted gross profit (and margin), EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted EPS from continuing operations excluding actions and the tax effect on actions. Adjusted net income is defined as net income from continuing operations excluding actions and the tax effect on actions. Adjusted operating profit is defined as operating profit excluding actions. Adjusted gross profit is defined as gross profit excluding actions. Adjusted SG&A is defined as selling, general and administrative expenses excluding actions.

Charges for actions taken year to date and for guidance for the full year primarily represent acquisition and integration costs related to Hanes Europe Innerwear, Hanes Australasia, Champion Europe, Alternative Apparel and Bras N Things, and other costs related to supply chain network changes. Acquisition and integration costs include legal fees, consulting fees, bank fees, severance costs, certain purchase accounting items, facility closures, inventory write-offs, information technology integration costs and similar charges. While these costs are not operational in nature and are not expected to continue for any singular transaction on an ongoing basis, similar types of costs, expenses and charges have occurred in prior periods and may recur in the future depending upon acquisition activity.

Hanes has chosen to present these non‐GAAP measures to investors to enable additional analyses of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means of evaluating operations absent the effect of acquisitions and other actions. Hanes believes these non-GAAP measures provide management and investors with valuable supplemental information for analyzing the operating performance of the company’s ongoing business during each period presented without giving effect to costs associated with the execution and integration of any of the aforementioned actions taken.

In addition, the company has chosen to present EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to investors because it considers these measures to be an important supplemental means of evaluating operating performance. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding actions and stock compensation expense. Hanes believes that EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in the industry, and management uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes in connection with setting its capital allocation strategy. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not, however, be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to invest in the growth of the business.

For the third-quarter 2018, Hanes has also chosen to present these non-GAAP measures to investors on a pro forma basis, excluding the effect of the bankruptcy of Sears Holdings Corporation. The company believes these pro forma adjusted financial results provide management and investors with increased clarity on the underlying performance of the business.

Hanes is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. As a supplement to the company’s reported operating results, Hanes also presents constant-currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. The company uses constant-currency information to provide a framework to assess how the business performed excluding the effects of changes in the rates used to calculate foreign currency translation.

Hanes believes this information is useful to management and investors to facilitate comparison of operating results and better identify trends in the company’s businesses.

To calculate foreign currency translation on a constant currency basis, operating results 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).

Non‐GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for, financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP measures presented may be different from non-GAAP measures with similar or identical names presented by other companies.

In the first, second and third quarters of 2018, Hanes incurred nearly $20 million, $25 million, and nearly $21 million, respectively, in pretax charges for acquisition-related and integration actions. In the first, second and third quarters of 2017, Hanes incurred $38 million, $26 million and $17 million, respectively, and in charges for acquisition-related and integration actions.

For 2018 guidance, Hanes expects full-year GAAP EPS of $1.50 to $1.54 with anticipated pretax charges for acquisition-related and integration costs and other actions of approximately $80 million, which results in adjusted EPS guidance of $1.69 to $1.73. For the fourth quarter, the company expects GAAP EPS of $0.42 to $0.46 with anticipated pretax charges for acquisition-related and integration costs and other actions of approximately $15 million, which results in adjusted EPS guidance of $0.46 to $0.50.
