Oxford Reports First Quarter EPS Above Guidance

--First Quarter GAAP EPS of $1.23, Adjusted EPS of $1.28, Above Guidance Range--
--Raises Full-Year Guidance--

ATLANTA, June 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2018 first quarter ended May 5, 2018.  Consolidated net sales increased slightly to $272.6 million compared to $272.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Earnings on a GAAP basis were $1.23 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $1.03 in the same period of the prior year.  On an adjusted basis, earnings were $1.28 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $1.12 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. 

Thomas C. Chubb III, Chairman and CEO, commented, “We successfully executed our plans during the first quarter and delivered sales at the high-end of our guidance range and earnings per share that exceeded our expectations. Importantly, our work included continuing to enhance the way our customers are able to experience our powerful portfolio of brands starting with our company operated stores and websites. We were pleased with the performance of our direct to consumer business, which included positive comparable sales growth led by strong gains in ecommerce. At the same time, as planned, we selectively reduced our wholesale door count to ensure a consistent customer experience across all of our distribution channels. This is an important step towards maintaining the strength and integrity of our leading brands.”

Mr. Chubb continued, “This year we are also continuing to build out more robust omnichannel capabilities and have achieved several major milestones across the organization. Among these is the all-new Lilly Pulitzer website, which provides the best digital presentation of the brand that we have ever delivered through both mobile and desktop devices.  For Tommy Bahama, our multi-year omnichannel IT infrastructure project is progressing well and our customers should see additional benefits from our investments in the form of an enhanced brand experience later in fiscal 2018.  On top of these initiatives, we are focusing on acquiring new customers as we believe our brands will resonate with a larger consumer audience. To this end, during the first quarter Lilly Pulitzer collaborated with Pottery Barn on an exclusive collection of home décor and furniture while Tommy Bahama ran targeted advertising campaigns in key markets such as San Diego, Scottsdale and Naples. We will continue to find other creative ways to fuel awareness and demand for our brands going forward.”

Mr. Chubb concluded, “We have a terrific portfolio of brands and an incredible team of people that bring these brands to life.  By staying focused on providing a great brand experience to our customers, I am confident we are well-positioned to deliver consistent earnings growth and increased shareholder value over the long-term.”

Consolidated Operating Results

First quarter fiscal 2018 net sales were $272.6 million, a slight increase over the prior year.  Increased sales in the Company’s direct to consumer business, including modestly positive comparable store sales, were offset by a planned decrease in wholesale sales.

Gross profit in the first quarter increased to $164.1 million compared to $159.4 million in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 grew to 60.2% compared to 58.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.  Adjusted gross margin in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 expanded 120 basis points to 60.4% from 59.2% in the same period of the prior year.  Gross margin improved as the Company’s higher margin direct to consumer businesses comprised a greater proportion of sales.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, SG&A as a percentage of net sales was 51.2% or $139.7 million compared to 48.9% or $133.2 million in the prior year’s first quarter.  The increase in SG&A was primarily due to increased investment in marketing and incremental costs associated with operating additional retail stores.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2018, royalties and other operating income were $3.9 million compared to $3.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. 

Operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $28.4 million compared to $30.0 million in the same period of the prior year. On an adjusted basis, operating income was $29.4 million compared to $32.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. 

Interest expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $0.8 million compared to $0.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. 

The effective tax rate in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was 25.5% compared to 40.8% in the same period of the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact of U.S. tax reform.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Inventory was $132.3 million at May 5, 2018 compared to $127.1 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017.  Lilly Pulitzer’s inventories increased to support planned sales increases in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 and the operation of 18 additional retail stores compared to last year.

As of May 5, 2018, the Company had $72 million of borrowings outstanding under its $325 million revolving credit agreement compared to $93 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017, with the decrease attributable to strong cash flow from operations in the last twelve months.  The Company ended the quarter with $211 million of unused availability under its credit agreement.

Outlook for Second Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018

The Company initiated its guidance for the second quarter of fiscal 2018, ending on August 4, 2018.  The Company expects net sales to grow to between $300 million and $310 million compared to net sales of $284.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Earnings per share on a GAAP basis are expected to be in a range of $1.72 to $1.82 in the second quarter.  On an adjusted basis, earnings per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 are expected to be in a range of $1.75 to $1.85. This compares with second quarter fiscal 2017 GAAP earnings per share of $1.36 and adjusted earnings per share of $1.44.

The Company’s third quarter is expected to remain its smallest sales and earnings quarter due to the seasonality of its Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer direct to consumer operations.  Therefore, the Company expects its third quarter earnings to be comparable to last year and expects to see meaningful direct to consumer growth in the fourth quarter. 

The Company has raised its outlook for the full year fiscal 2018.  The Company now expects GAAP earnings to grow to between $4.32 and $4.52.  On an adjusted basis, earnings per share for fiscal 2018 are expected to be in a range of $4.45 to $4.65. This compares to earnings on a GAAP basis of $3.87 per share and, on an adjusted basis, $3.66 per share in fiscal 2017. The Company expects net sales to grow to between $1.125 billion and $1.145 billion as compared to Fiscal 2017 net sales of $1.086 billion.

The Company’s interest expense is expected to be slightly less than $3 million and its effective tax rate for fiscal 2018 is expected to be approximately 26%.

Capital expenditures in fiscal 2018, including $13 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, are expected to approach $60 million, primarily reflecting investments in information technology initiatives, new retail stores and restaurants, and investments to remodel existing retail stores and restaurants.

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. Fiscal 2017, which ended February 3, 2018, was a 53-week year with the extra week included in the fourth quarter.  Fiscal 2018, which ends February 2, 2019 is a 52-week year.

Comparable Store Sales

The Company’s disclosures about comparable store sales include sales from its full-price stores and e-commerce sites, excluding sales associated with e-commerce flash clearance sales. Because fiscal 2017 had 53 weeks, each fiscal week in fiscal 2018 starts and ends one calendar week later than in fiscal 2017. To provide a more accurate assessment of the Company’s fiscal 2018 comparable store productivity, the Company presents fiscal 2018 comparable store sales on a calendar-adjusted basis by comparing the fiscal 2018 period to the comparable calendar period in the preceding year. Thus, comparable store sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compare sales in the 13-week period ended May 5, 2018 to the 13-week period ended May 6, 2017.

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 Store Sales Change
The Company's disclosures about comparable store sales include sales from its full-price stores and e-commerce sites, excluding sales associated with e-commerce flash clearance sales. Because Fiscal 2017 had 53 weeks, each fiscal week in Fiscal 2018 starts and ends one calendar week later than in Fiscal 2017. To provide a more accurate assessment of the Company’s Fiscal 2018 comparable store productivity, the Company presents Fiscal 2018 comparable store sales on a calendar-adjusted basis by comparing the Fiscal 2018 period to the comparable calendar period in the preceding year. Thus comparable store sales for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2018 compare sales in the 13-week period ended May 5, 2018 to the 13-week period ended May 6, 2017. Additionally, comparable store 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. Prior period comparable store sales changes are as previously disclosed.
