ATLANTA, Dec. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE: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.

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.

Comparable Sales Change
The Company's disclosures for comparable sales include sales from its full-price retail stores and e-commerce sites, excluding sales associated with e-commerce flash clearance sales. Because Fiscal 2017 was a 53-week period, comparable sales for Fiscal 2018 are calculated on a calendar-adjusted, rather than fiscal, basis by comparing the Fiscal 2018 period to the comparable calendar period in the preceding year and the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2018 is on a 13 week to 13 week calendar-adjusted basis. Additionally, comparable sales for Fiscal 2017 and the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2017 are calculated on a 53 week to 53 week and 14 week to 14 week basis, respectively.
