PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH] reported its 2020 first quarter results.

Non-GAAP Amounts:

Amounts stated to be on a non-GAAP basis exclude the items that are described below under the heading "Non-GAAP Exclusions." Amounts stated on a constant currency basis are also deemed to be on a non-GAAP basis. Reconciliations of amounts on a GAAP basis to amounts on a non-GAAP basis are presented later in this release and identify and quantify all excluded items.

First Quarter Highlights:

The Companys business was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic during the first quarter of 2020, resulting in an unprecedented decline in revenue and earnings.

  • The majority of the Companys stores and its wholesale customers stores globally were closed for six weeks on average.
  • As a result of the widespread temporary store closures and reduced traffic while stores were open, revenue in the Companys retail stores declined approximately 50% to 65% compared to the prior year period, depending on the region.
  • The Companys directly operated digital commerce businesses experienced strong growth in all regions, increasing 47% globally compared to the prior year period, partially offsetting the revenue decline in the Companys other distribution channels.
  • The temporary closures of the Companys wholesale customers stores resulted in a sharp reduction in shipments to these customers and an overall decline of 41% in the Companys global wholesale revenue.
  • Results were under significant pressure and included a $97 million increase in accounts receivable write-offs and inventory reserves, as well as a deleveraging of expenses, as payroll costs for certain retail associates continued to be incurred for all or a significant portion of the periods during which the Companys stores were closed and expense reduction measures only started to become effective later in the quarter.

Refer to the section entitled "First Quarter Consolidated Results" later in this release for quantification of the first quarter 2020 financial results.

COVID-19 Pandemic Update:

As previously announced in April, the Company initiated prudent and proactive actions to reduce its operating expenses and working capital and is reallocating resources, where appropriate, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the following measures, which began in mid-April and are ongoing:

  • Reducing payroll costs, including salary and incentive compensation reductions, furloughs, decreased working hours and hiring freezes across the Company, as well as taking advantage of applicable government relief programs.
  • Eliminating or reducing other discretionary and variable operating expenses, including marketing, travel, consulting services, and creative and design costs.
  • Tightly managing inventories, including reducing and cancelling inventory commitments, redeploying basic inventory items to subsequent seasons and consolidating future seasonal collections, as well as negotiating extended payment terms with its suppliers.
  • Redirecting resources and focus to support the Companys directly operated and its brick and mortar and pure play wholesale customers digital commerce businesses. This includes, among other things on the Companys own sites, improved brand and product messaging and site functionality, as well as additional fulfillment options, including curbside pickup and fulfillment from certain of its stores globally.

The Companys business has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Company expects that its revenue decline in the second quarter will be more pronounced than in the first quarter. The Companys operations have been affected as follows:

  • Global Wholesale and Licensing Partners: The Companys brick and mortar wholesale customers and licensing partners experienced significant business disruptions as a result of the pandemic. However, brick and mortar and pure play wholesale customers exhibited strength across the digital commerce channels. In recent weeks, most of the Companys brick and mortar wholesale customers have reopened the majority of their locations across all regions, with larger format stores opening at a slower pace in Europe. However, due to the significant levels of inventory that remain in stores, the majority of the Companys North American and European brick and mortar wholesale partners stopped accepting shipments beginning in March, which has not materially improved in the second quarter.
  • Direct to Consumer:
    • Retail: The majority of the Companys global stores were temporarily closed for six weeks on average during the quarter. By mid-June, over 85% of the Companys stores are expected to be reopened, although most are operating on reduced hours and at reduced occupancy levels. Sales for reopened stores for the second quarter-to-date are running down approximately 20% in Europe, 25% in North America, and 25% for total Asia, with China approximately flat, compared to the prior year period. While sales remain down across all regions, traffic and sales trends are improving each week.
    • Digital commerce: The Companys directly operated digital commerce businesses were fully operational in all regions during the first quarter. The Company experienced robust consumer demand for its TOMMY HILFIGER and CALVIN KLEIN brands across all regions, resulting in double-digit to triple-digit revenue increases through its digital commerce sites during the period the Companys stores were closed as compared to the prior year period. Revenue through the Companys digital commerce sites has continued to increase compared to the prior year period even as stores reopen.
  • Supply chain: The pandemic has impacted some of the Companys suppliers, including third-party manufacturers, logistics providers and other vendors. With some of the Companys partners operating at reduced capacity, the Company continues to monitor for any potential delays or disruptions of its supply chain and will implement mitigation plans if needed.

Liquidity Update:

As previously announced, the Company moved quickly to reinforce its liquidity in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company ended the quarter with cash of approximately $800 million and approximately $1 billion of available borrowings under its revolving credit facilities. The Company has taken the following actions:

  • Suspended share repurchases under the stock repurchase program in mid-March, following approximately $110 million in repurchases completed in the first quarter.
  • Suspended its cash dividend beginning with the second quarter. The Companys first quarter cash dividend of $0.0375 per common share paid on March 31, 2020 was not affected by this suspension.
  • Entered into a new $275 million 364-day revolving credit facility.
  • Issued an additional ¬175 million of 3 5/8% senior notes due 2024.
  • Obtained a waiver of the leverage and interest coverage covenants under its senior credit facilities through and including the first quarter of 2021.
  • Reduced planned capital expenditures to approximately $190 million in 2020 from $345 million in 2019.

Additionally, the Company closed the sale of its Speedo North America business to Pentland Group PLC, the parent company of the Speedo brand, in April for net proceeds of $169 million (the "Speedo transaction").

CEO Comments:

Commenting on these results, Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, noted, "We are living through an unprecedented moment in history. From the tragic acts of racism in the U.S. and around the world, to the COVID-19 pandemic, our thoughts and hearts are heavy. At PVH, we have always been committed to our people and our communities, and we are focused on how we can use this moment as a catalyst for change. As we navigate this backdrop together, I truly hope that the unfolding events can bring us closer together."

Mr. Chirico continued, "While our first quarter results were impacted significantly by the pandemic, we have been able to reopen the majority of our stores in all regions over the last month. We are adhering to strict safety protocols, prioritizing the health and well-being of our associates and consumers, and, while it is still early, we are seeing improving traffic and conversion trends in most markets. At the same time, our digital commerce businesses continue to experience outsized growth, even as stores reopen. While the pandemic will continue to have a profound impact on consumer purchasing habits for the foreseeable future, these trends underscore that our brands are strong, we have exceptional and dedicated PVH associates, and we continue to have outstanding traction with our consumers, customers and business partners."

Mr. Chirico concluded, "Throughout our nearly 140-year history, we have navigated successfully many economic and geopolitical challenges, and I am confident that we can manage through this crisis successfully, as well. Resilience has always been a strength of our company and now more than ever, we need to be agile as we face a rapidly changing landscape. We have taken a proactive stance to increase our liquidity and enhance the financial health of our businesses from aggressively managing our operating expenses and identifying efficiencies across the business, to reducing our inventory levels, to reviewing our capital allocation priorities and securing incremental liquidity and I believe that we will emerge an even stronger organization."

First Quarter Consolidated Results:

The Companys business was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic during the first quarter of 2020, resulting in an unprecedented decline in revenue and earnings, including $962 million of pre-tax noncash impairment charges during the quarter.

First quarter revenue decreased 43% to $1.344 billion (decreased 42% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period. The revenue decrease was due to:

  • A 39% decrease (37% decrease on a constant currency basis) in the Tommy Hilfiger business compared to the prior year period, including a 51% decrease in Tommy Hilfiger North America and a 32% decrease in Tommy Hilfiger International.
  • A 46% decrease (45% decrease on a constant currency basis) in the Calvin Klein business compared to the prior year period, including a 54% decrease in Calvin Klein North America and a 40% decrease in Calvin Klein International.
  • A 47% decrease in the Heritage Brands business compared to the prior year period.

First quarter revenue reflected a 47% increase in sales through the Companys directly operated digital commerce businesses driven by strong growth in all regions, which partially offset the decline in revenue through its other distribution channels.

Loss per share on a GAAP basis was $(15.37) for the first quarter of 2020 compared to earnings per share of $1.08 in the prior year period. These results include the amounts for the applicable period described under the heading "Non-GAAP Exclusions" later in this release, including for the current quarter $962 million of pre-tax noncash impairment charges resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Companys business. Loss per share and earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis for these periods, respectively, as discussed below, exclude these amounts.

Loss per share on a non-GAAP basis was $(3.03) for the first quarter of 2020 compared to earnings per share of $2.46 in the prior year period.

Loss before interest and taxes on a GAAP basis for the quarter was $(1.2) billion compared to earnings before interest and taxes of $135 million in the prior year period. Included in loss before interest and taxes for the first quarter of 2020 were costs of $972 million consisting of (i) $962 million of noncash impairments resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Companys business, including $933 million related to goodwill and other intangible assets, $16 million related to store assets, and $12 million related to an equity method investment, (ii) $7 million in connection with a consolidation within the Companys warehouse and distribution network in North America, and (iii) a $3 million noncash net loss in connection with the Speedo transaction and the resulting deconsolidation of the net assets of the Companys Speedo North America business. Included in earnings before interest and taxes for the prior year period were costs of $131 million consisting of (i) $70 million related to the restructuring associated with the strategic changes for the Calvin Klein business announced in January 2019 (the "Calvin Klein restructuring"), (ii) $55 million in connection with the closure of the Companys TOMMY HILFIGER flagship and anchor stores in the U.S. (the "TH U.S. store closures") and (iii) $6 million in connection with the refinancing of the Companys senior credit facilities. Loss before interest and taxes and earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis for these periods, respectively, as discussed below, exclude these amounts.

Loss before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis for the quarter was $(247) million compared to earnings before interest and taxes of $267 million in the prior year period. The decrease was driven by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the revenue decline discussed above, as well as the negative impact of a $97 million increase in accounts receivable write-offs and inventory reserves.

Net interest expense on a GAAP basis decreased to $21 million from $30 million in the prior year period. Included in net interest expense for the first quarter of 2020 was $4 million of income resulting from the remeasurement of the Companys mandatorily redeemable non-controlling interest that was recognized in connection with the Companys May 2019 acquisition of the approximately 78% interest in Gazal Corporation Limited ("Gazal") that it did not already own (the "Australia acquisition"). Net interest expense on a non-GAAP basis excludes this amount. Net interest expense on a non-GAAP basis decreased to $25 million from $30 million on a GAAP basis in the prior year period (there were no non-GAAP exclusions in the prior year period).

The effective tax rate on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2020 was 11.5% as compared to 22.4% in the prior year period. The effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2020 was 20.2% as compared to 21.4% in the prior year period.

Non-GAAP Exclusions:

The discussions in this release that refer to non-GAAP amounts exclude the following:

  • Pre-tax noncash impairment charges of $962 million recorded in the first quarter of 2020 resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Companys business, including $933 million related to goodwill and other intangible assets, $16 million related to store assets, and $12 million related to an equity method investment.
  • Pre-tax costs of $7 million incurred in the first quarter of 2020 in connection with a consolidation within the Companys warehouse and distribution network in North America.
  • Pre-tax noncash net loss of $3 million recorded in the first quarter of 2020 related to the Speedo transaction and the resulting deconsolidation of the net assets of the Companys Speedo North America business.
  • Pre-tax income of $4 million recorded in the first quarter of 2020 resulting from the remeasurement of the Companys mandatorily redeemable non-controlling interest that was recognized in connection with the Australia acquisition.
  • Pre-tax costs of $70 million incurred in the first quarter of 2019 related to the Calvin Klein restructuring, including $35 million of noncash asset impairments, primarily consisting of a lease asset impairment resulting from the closure of the Companys flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York, New York, $19 million of severance, $15 million of contract termination and other costs, and $2 million of inventory markdowns.
  • Pre-tax costs of $55 million incurred in the first quarter of 2019 in connection with the TH U.S. store closures, primarily consisting of noncash lease asset impairments.
  • Pre-tax costs of $6 million incurred in the first quarter of 2019 in connection with the refinancing of the Companys senior credit facilities.
  • Estimated tax effects associated with the above pre-tax items, which are based on the Companys assessment of deductibility. In making this assessment, the Company evaluated each item that it had identified above as a non-GAAP exclusion to determine if such item is taxable or tax deductible, and if so, in what jurisdiction the tax expense or tax deduction would occur. All items above were identified as either primarily taxable or tax deductible, with the tax effect taken at the applicable income tax rate in the local jurisdiction, or as non-taxable or non-deductible, in which case the Company assumed no tax effect.

As a supplement to the Companys GAAP results, the Company presents constant currency revenue information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company presents results in this manner because it is a global company that transacts business in multiple currencies but reports financial information in U.S. dollars. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by the Company in U.S. dollars with respect to its foreign revenues. Exchange rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported revenues. The Company believes presenting constant currency revenue information provides useful information to investors, as it provides information to assess how its businesses performed excluding the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and assists investors in evaluating the effectiveness of the Companys operations and underlying business trends in a manner that is consistent with managements evaluation of business performance.

The Company calculates constant currency revenue information by translating its foreign revenues for the relevant period into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable prior year period (rather than at the actual exchange rates in effect during the relevant period).

Constant currency performance should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or as superior to, the Companys operating performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency revenue information presented may not be comparable to similarly described measures reported by other companies.

Please see Tables 1 through 10 and the section entitled "Reconciliations of 2020 Constant Currency Revenue" later in this release for reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP amounts.

PVH CORP.
Non-GAAP Measures

The Company believes it is useful to investors to present its results for the quarters ended May 3, 2020 and May 5, 2019 on a non-GAAP basis by excluding (i) the noncash impairment charges recorded in the first quarter of 2020 related to goodwill, tradenames, other intangible assets, store assets and an equity method investment as a result of the significant negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Companys business; (ii) the noncash net loss recorded in the first quarter of 2020 related to the sale of the Speedo North America business in April 2020 (the "Speedo transaction") and the resulting deconsolidation of the net assets of the business; (iii) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2020 in connection with the consolidation within the Companys warehouse and distribution network in North America; (iv) the income recorded in the first quarter of 2020 resulting from the remeasurement of the Companys mandatorily redeemable non-controlling interest that was recognized in connection with the acquisition of the approximately 78% interest in Gazal Corporation Limited that the Company did not already own ("the Australia acquisition"); (v) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2019 related to the restructuring associated with the strategic changes for its Calvin Klein business announced in January 2019 (the "Calvin Klein restructuring"), consisting of a noncash lease asset impairment resulting from the closure of the Companys flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York, New York; other noncash asset impairments; severance; contract termination and other costs; and inventory markdowns; (vi) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2019 in connection with the closure of the Companys TOMMY HILFIGER flagship and anchor stores in the United States (the "TH U.S. store closures"), primarily consisting of noncash lease asset impairments; (vii) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2019 in connection with the refinancing of the Companys senior credit facilities; and (viii) the tax effects associated with the foregoing pre-tax items. The Company excludes these amounts because it deems them to be non-recurring or non-operational and believes that their exclusion (i) facilitates comparing the results being reported against past and future results by eliminating amounts that it believes are not comparable between periods, thereby permitting management to evaluate performance and investors to make decisions based on the ongoing operations of the Company, and (ii) assists investors in evaluating the effectiveness of the Companys operations and underlying business trends in a manner that is consistent with managements evaluation of business performance. The Company believes that investors often look at ongoing operations of an enterprise as a measure of assessing performance. The Company uses its results excluding these amounts to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Companys Board of Directors and others. The Companys results excluding the items described above are also the basis for certain incentive compensation calculations. The non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, the Companys operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The information presented on a non-GAAP basis may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
