Oxford: Owner of Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer and Southern Tide Announces Fiscal 2019 Third Quarter Results

-- Comparable Sales Increased 6% --
-- GAAP and Adjusted EPS of $0.10 at Top of Guidance Ranges --
-- Narrows Full-Year GAAP EPS Guidance Range to $4.15 - $4.30 and Full-Year Adjusted EPS to $4.25 - $4.40 --

ATLANTA, Dec. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (OXM) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2019 third quarter ended November 2, 2019. Consolidated net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 grew to $241.2 million compared to $233.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Earnings on a GAAP basis were $0.10 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to earnings of $0.11 per share in the same period of the prior year. On an adjusted basis, earnings were $0.10 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to earnings of $0.14 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.

Thomas C. Chubb III, Chairman and CEO, commented, “We delivered another quarter of solid results highlighted by a 6% comparable sales gain on top of a 7% increase a year ago. The strength of our brands and product offerings, combined with the work we’ve done enhancing our direct to consumer capabilities, fueled our top-line performance. At the same time, our commitment to operational excellence throughout the organization allowed us to achieve third quarter earnings at the high end of our guidance range.”

Mr. Chubb continued, “This is a dynamic time of year as we are in the midst of the holiday selling season. With the remaining holiday shopping days and the all-important resort season still ahead of us, we have the opportunity to do a lot of business in the quarter. That said, our fourth quarter sales to date are tracking a bit behind our previous plan and we have modestly trimmed the top end of our earnings outlook. With our powerful brands and brand messaging, our differentiated product, and the incredible shopping experience delivered both online and in-store by our amazing people, we are confident that we can deliver a solid fourth quarter and continue to build shareholder value over the near and long term.”

Consolidated Operating Results

Consolidated net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 3% to $241.2 million from $233.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 driven by a comparable sales increase of 6%.

Gross profit in the third quarter increased to $133.0 million compared to $129.3 million in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was 55.1% compared to 55.3% in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Adjusted gross profit and margin in both periods were comparable to GAAP values.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2019, SG&A was $134.2 million or 55.6% of net sales compared to $128.7 million and 55.1% in the prior year’s third quarter. On an adjusted basis, SG&A was $134.1 million or 55.6% of net sales compared to $128.1 million and 54.8% in the prior year’s third quarter.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2019, royalties and other operating income increased to $3.8 million compared to $3.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.

Operating income in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was $2.6 million compared to operating income of $3.7 million in the same period of the prior year. On an adjusted basis, operating income was $2.7 million compared to $4.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.

Because of the lower operating results in the third quarter compared to other quarters of the fiscal year, income taxes and the effective tax rate in the third quarter are often more significantly impacted by discrete and other items. The effective tax rate in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was 34%, which is not indicative of the effective tax rate anticipated for the full year.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Inventory increased to $154 million at November 2, 2019 from $138 million at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2018. This increase was primarily due to additional inventory to support key items at Tommy Bahama, anticipated sales growth, and new retail stores and Marlin Bars.

As of November 2, 2019, the Company had no borrowings outstanding under its $325 million credit agreement compared to $32 million at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2018. The Company had $22 million in cash at the end of the quarter compared to $7 million in the prior year. These changes were attributable to strong cash flow from operations.

Outlook for Fiscal Year 2019 and Fourth Quarter

For the full year fiscal 2019, ending on February 1, 2020, the Company has narrowed its earnings guidance ranges and now expects GAAP earnings per share to be between $4.15 and $4.30. Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be between $4.25 and $4.40. This compares to fiscal 2018 earnings on a GAAP basis of $3.94 per share and, on an adjusted basis, $4.32 per share. The Company expects net sales to grow to between $1.125 billion to $1.135 billion as compared to fiscal 2018 net sales of $1.107 billion.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company expects net sales in a range from $300 million to $310 million compared to net sales of $298.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Earnings per share on a GAAP basis are expected to be in a range of $1.00 to $1.15 in the fourth quarter. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 are expected to be in a range of $1.01 to $1.16. This compares with fourth quarter fiscal 2018 GAAP earnings per share of $0.99 and adjusted earnings per share of $1.08.

The Company’s effective tax rate for fiscal 2019 is expected to be approximately 26%.

Capital expenditures in fiscal 2019, including $27 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2019, are expected to be approximately $40 million, primarily consisting of investments in information technology initiatives, new retail stores and Marlin Bars, and investments to remodel existing retail stores and restaurants.

Dividend

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend of $0.37 per share payable on January 31, 2020 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on January 17, 2020. The Company has paid dividends every quarter since it became publicly owned in 1960.

The Company will hold a conference call with senior management to discuss its financial results at 4:30 p.m. ET today. A live web cast of the conference call will be available on the Company’s website at www.oxfordinc.com. A replay of the call will be available through December 25, 2019 by dialing (412) 317-6671 access code 13696756.

Basis of Presentation

All financial results and outlook information included in this release, unless otherwise noted, are from continuing operations and all per share amounts are on a diluted basis. Effective February 3, 2019, the Company adopted the new lease accounting guidance, which resulted in a significant increase in its reported assets and liabilities. The adoption of the new lease accounting guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations or consolidated statements of cash flows.

Comparable Sales

The Company’s disclosures about comparable sales include sales from its full-price retail stores and e-commerce sites, excluding sales associated with e-commerce flash clearance sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company reports its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To supplement these consolidated financial results, management believes that a presentation and discussion of certain financial measures on an adjusted basis, which exclude certain non-operating or discrete gains, charges or other items, may provide a more meaningful basis on which investors may compare the Company’s ongoing results of operations between periods. These measures include adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, and adjusted operating income, among others. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operational and planning decisions to evaluate the Company’s ongoing performance. Management also uses these adjusted financial measures to discuss its business with investment and other financial institutions, its board of directors and others. Reconciliations of these adjusted measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are presented in tables included at the end of this release. These reconciliations present adjusted operating results information for certain historical and future periods.

Safe Harbor

This press release includes statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Generally, the words "believe," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," "project," "will" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, which are not historical in nature. We intend for all forward-looking statements contained herein or on our website, and all subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf, to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and the provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (which Sections were adopted as part of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995). Such statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions including, without limitation, demand for our products, which may be impacted by competitive conditions and/or evolving consumer shopping patterns; macroeconomic factors that may impact consumer spending for apparel and related products; costs of products as well as the raw materials used in those products; expected pricing levels; costs of labor; the timing of shipments requested by our wholesale customers; changes, and the impact on our business operations of such changes, in international, federal or state tax, trade and other laws and regulations, including the imposition of additional duties, tariffs, taxes or other charges or barriers to trade resulting from ongoing trade developments with China and our ability to implement mitigating sourcing strategies; weather; retention of and disciplined execution by key management; the timing and cost of store and restaurant openings and remodels as well as other capital expenditures; acquisition and disposition activities, including our ability to timely recognize expected synergies from acquisitions; expected outcomes of pending or potential litigation and regulatory actions; the impact of any restructuring initiatives we may undertake in one or more of our business lines; access to capital and/or credit markets; changes in accounting standards and related guidance; and factors that could affect our consolidated effective tax rate. Forward-looking statements reflect our expectations at the time such forward-looking statements are made, based on information available at such time, and are not guarantees of performance. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, these expectations could prove inaccurate as such statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our ability to control or predict. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties, or other risks or uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial, materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected. Important factors relating to these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those described in Part I, Item 1A. contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended February 2, 2019 under the heading "Risk Factors" and those described from time to time in our future reports filed with the SEC. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on which they are made. We disclaim any intention, obligation or duty to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
