ATLANTA, Dec. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2017 third quarter ended October 28, 2017.  Consolidated net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 6% to $236.0 million compared to $222.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. Earnings on a GAAP basis were $0.06 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to a loss of $0.10 in the same period of the prior year.  On an adjusted basis, earnings were $0.17 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to a loss of $0.07 in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. 

Thomas C. Chubb III, Chairman and CEO, commented, “We are proud of our third quarter results.  Our dynamic portfolio of strong lifestyle brands delivered solid year-over-year growth on both the top and bottom lines.  A modest negative impact to earnings from the recent hurricanes was offset by some favorable tax benefits recognized in the quarter. More importantly, we are well-positioned for opportunities created by the emerging optimism among consumers during this holiday market.” 

Mr. Chubb concluded, “The positive momentum that resulted in a 4% increase in comparable store sales in the third quarter gives us confidence that we can continue to drive growth in the fourth quarter. Our brands have excellent plans centered on compelling product and innovative marketing campaigns that we believe will set us apart in this highly competitive and promotional holiday season.”

Consolidated Operating Results

Consolidated net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 6% year-over-year to $236.0 million, led by meaningful increases at Lanier Apparel, Lilly Pulitzer and Southern Tide.  Net sales at Tommy Bahama were 2% lower than the prior year’s third quarter, with increases in all full price direct to consumer channels offset by lower year-over-year sales in its off-price direct to consumer channels.

Gross profit in the third quarter increased 6% to $125.2 million compared to $118.1 million in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was flat with last year at 53.0% compared to 53.1% in the prior year. On an adjusted basis, gross margin expanded 60 basis points to 53.7% compared to 53.1% in the prior year.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2017, SG&A improved to 53.9% of net sales or $127.1 million compared to 54.6% or $121.4 million in the prior year’s third quarter. The increase in SG&A was primarily due to incremental costs associated with operating additional retail stores and increased incentive compensation.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2017, royalties and other operating income were in line with the prior year at $3.0 million compared to $3.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. 

Operating income in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $1.1 million compared to an operating loss of $0.3 million in the same period of the prior year. On an adjusted basis, operating income was $3.8 million compared to $0.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. 

Interest expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was flat with last year at $0.7 million.

Tax expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 benefited from $0.8 million of discrete items, which had a meaningful impact on the effective tax rate due to lower earnings in the third quarter, which is historically the Company’s smallest quarter.  

The Company estimates Hurricanes Harvey and Irma resulted in lost sales and earnings per share of approximately $2 million and $0.05, respectively.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Inventory turns improved on an inventory decrease of 7% to $127.3 million at October 28, 2017 from $136.4 million at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2016.  The Company believes that inventories in each operating group are appropriate to support future sales and a sustained solid gross margin. 

As of October 28, 2017, the Company had $72.1 million of borrowings outstanding under its $325 million revolving credit agreement compared to $142.4 million at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2016, with the decrease attributable to strong cash flow from operations.  The Company ended the quarter with $204.6 million of unused availability under its credit agreement.

Fiscal Year 2017 Outlook

For the full year fiscal 2017, the Company now expects GAAP earnings per share to be between $3.23 and $3.38. Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be between $3.55 and $3.70. This compares to fiscal 2016 earnings on a GAAP basis of $3.27 per share and, on an adjusted basis, $3.30 per share. The Company expects net sales to grow to between $1.08 billion to $1.095 billion as compared to fiscal 2016 net sales of $1.023 billion.

The Company’s effective tax rate for fiscal 2017 is expected to be approximately 37%, comparable to the fiscal 2016 rate. Full year interest expense is estimated to be approximately $3.0 million.

Capital expenditures in fiscal 2017, including $26.4 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2017, are expected to be approximately $40 million, primarily reflecting investments in information technology initiatives, new retail stores and restaurants, and investments to remodel and relocate existing retail stores.

Dividend

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend of $0.27 per share payable on February 2, 2018 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on January 19, 2018. The Company has paid dividends every quarter since it became publicly owned in 1960.

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.

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.
