CEO and President Comments

Ernie Herrman, Chief Executive Officer and President of The TJX Companies, Inc., stated, “I am extremely pleased with our overall open-only comp store sales increase of 20% over Fiscal 2020 and very strong bottom line results, both of which were well above our plans for the second quarter. I am especially pleased with the sequential improvement to our pretax margin compared to the first quarter. The performance of our home businesses across all of our divisions continued to be phenomenal, and apparel continued to trend higher, with open-only comp sales increasing low-teens for the quarter. Our U.S. and international divisions delivered outstanding double-digit open-only comp store sales increases, as our exciting and eclectic mix of merchandise, great brands and values, and treasure-hunt shopping experience continued to draw customers into our stores around the world. I want to recognize the extraordinary work and dedication of our global Associates across the organization, especially our store and distribution center Associates who are physically coming into work to bring great values to our customers. Sales are very strong as we start the third quarter, with overall open-only comp store sales up mid-teens. While the environment remains uncertain, particularly with the Delta variant, we are convinced that TJX is in a position of strength. We see numerous opportunities to continue to gain market share and improve our profitability in the medium to longer term. We are confident in our ability to reach our long-term strategic vision of TJX becoming a $60 billion company.”

1This measure reports the sales increase or decrease of these stores for the days the stores were open in the second quarter of Fiscal 2022 against sales of those stores for the same days in Fiscal 2020, prior to the emergence of the pandemic, which the Company believes is a more useful comparison than against the second quarter of Fiscal 2021. 2Open-only comparable store sales outside the U.S. calculated on a constant currency basis, which removes the effect of changes in currency exchange rates. 3Open-only comparable store sales exclude e-commerce sites (tjmaxx.com, marshalls.com, sierra.com, and tkmaxx.com) and include Sierra stores. 4Net sales in TJX Canada and TJX International include the impact of foreign currency exchange rates. 5Figures may not foot due to rounding. 6Combination of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. 7Net sales include Sierra’s e-commerce and store sales. 8Includes Homesense stores in the U.S.

Margins

For the second quarter of Fiscal 2022, the Company’s consolidated pretax profit margin was 8.7%, which includes a 2.0 percentage point negative impact due to a debt extinguishment charge (described below) of $242 million, and an estimated 0.6 percentage point negative impact due to lost sales from temporary store closures. Net COVID costs negatively impacted pretax margin by 0.3 percentage points, significantly less than the first quarter of Fiscal 2022. The Company’s strong sales and excellent merchandise margin increase more than offset 1.5 percentage points of incremental freight expense as well as substantial supply chain and wage costs.

Inventory

Total inventories as of July 31, 2021 were $5.1 billion, compared with $5.1 billion at the end of the second quarter of Fiscal 2020. Overall product availability in the marketplace remains excellent and the Company is well positioned to deliver a fresh assortment of merchandise to its stores and e-commerce sites for the back-to-school shopping season and throughout the fall.

Cash and Shareholder Distributions

During the second quarter of Fiscal 2022, the Company generated $1.4 billion of operating cash flow and ended the quarter with $7.1 billion of cash. During the second quarter, the Company returned a total of $614 million to shareholders. The Company repurchased a total of $300 million of TJX stock, retiring 4.6 million shares. The Company now expects to repurchase approximately $1.25 billion to $1.50 billion of TJX stock in Fiscal 2022, an increase of $250 million versus its prior plan. The Company may adjust this amount up or down depending on various factors. The Company also declared a quarterly dividend of $.26 per share in the second quarter of Fiscal 2022 and paid $314 million in shareholder dividends. The Company expects to declare a similar dividend in the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, subject to Board approval.

Redemption of Senior Notes and Debt Extinguishment Charge

On June 4, 2021, the Company completed make-whole calls for its $1.25 billion principal outstanding, 3.50% Notes due April 15, 2025, and its $750 million principal outstanding, 3.75% Notes due April 15, 2027. As a result of these redemptions prior to their scheduled maturities, the Company recorded a pre-tax debt extinguishment charge of $242 million in the second quarter of Fiscal 2022. Since the beginning of Fiscal 2022, the Company has reduced its outstanding debt by $2.75 billion and reduced its annualized interest expense by more than $90 million.

Impact of Temporary Store Closures

The Company’s results for the second quarter of Fiscal 2022 were negatively impacted by the temporary closure of some of its stores due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Although the Company’s stores in the U.S. were open for the entire second quarter, stores in Canada were closed for approximately 22% of the second quarter, stores in Europe were closed for approximately 2% of the quarter, and stores in Australia were closed for about 18% of the quarter. In total, the Company had stores closed for approximately 3% of the second quarter due to the COVID-19 global pandemic (see table below). The Company estimates that these closures may have resulted in approximately $300 million to $350 million in lost sales during the second quarter of Fiscal 2022. This range of estimated lost sales assumes all Canadian, European, and Australian stores operated at similar open-only comp store sales trends as the first and second quarter of Fiscal 2022. Based on management’s estimate of profit dollars on this range of lost sales, the Company estimates that second quarter Fiscal 2022 earnings per share were negatively impacted by approximately $.05 to $.07. At the end of the second quarter, 4,649 of the Company’s 4,665 stores were open.

The Company’s results for the first half of Fiscal 2022 were negatively impacted by the temporary closure of some of its stores due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Although the Company’s stores in the U.S. were open for the first half of Fiscal 2022, stores in Europe were closed for approximately 39% of the first half, stores in Canada were closed for about 24% of the first half, and stores in Australia were closed for approximately 10% of the first half. In total, the Company had stores closed for approximately 8% of the first half of Fiscal 2022 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic (see table below). The Company estimates that these closures may have resulted in approximately $1.40 billion to $1.55 billion in lost sales during the first half of Fiscal 2022. Based on management’s estimate of profit dollars on this range of lost sales, the Company estimates that first half Fiscal 2022 earnings per share were negatively impacted by approximately $.26 to $.31.

Outlook

For the start of the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, sales are very strong, with overall open-only comp store sales up mid-teens over the third quarter of Fiscal 2020. Currently, all of the Company’s stores in the U.S., Canada, and Europe are open, and approximately 40 of its Australian stores are closed. While the Company is currently not expecting any significant store closures during the third quarter, it could experience temporary closures again if new COVID-related regulations are put in place. Due to the continued uncertainty of the current environment, the Company is not providing financial guidance at this time.

Stores by Concept

During the second quarter ended July 31, 2021, the Company increased its store count by 26 stores to a total of 4,665 stores and increased square footage by 0.5% versus the previous quarter.

Fiscal 2022 Open-Only Comp Store Sales

Due to the temporary closing of stores as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Company’s historical definition of comp store sales is not applicable for the second quarter and first half of Fiscal 2022. In order to provide a performance indicator for its stores, the Company has been temporarily reporting a new sales measure: open-only comp store sales. The Company’s open-only comp store sales calculation includes stores initially classified as comp stores at the beginning of Fiscal 2021. This measure reports the sales increase or decrease of these stores for the days the stores were open in the second quarter and first half of Fiscal 2022 against sales for the same days in Fiscal 2020, prior to the emergence of the global pandemic.

Notes to Consolidated Condensed Statements

  1. The novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") was identified in December 2019 before spreading worldwide. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, primarily during the first quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company took several steps to strengthen its financial position and balance sheet and to maintain financial liquidity and flexibility. The COVID-19 pandemic is complex and rapidly evolving and the severity and duration of the pandemic is still unknown. Additionally, the resurgence or the emergence of new variants has caused and may continue to cause intermittent or prolonged periods of temporary store closures, and could elicit further actions and recommendations from governments and public health authorities that could impact the Company's operations. These and other factors have had and may continue to have a material impact on the Company's business, results of operations, financial position and liquidity.
  2. On June 4, 2021, the Company completed make-whole calls for its $1.25 billion principal outstanding, 3.50% Notes due April 15, 2025, and its $750 million principal outstanding, 3.75% Notes due April 15, 2027, both of which were issued in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. As a result of these redemptions prior to their scheduled maturities, the Company recorded a pre-tax debt extinguishment charge of $242 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. In addition, in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company redeemed $750 million of its 2.75% Notes due June 15, 2021 at par.
  3. The Company declared a quarterly dividend on its common stock of $0.26 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, and expects to declare a similar dividend in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, subject to the Board of Directors approval. No dividends were declared in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
  4. During the second quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company reinstated its share buyback program, which was suspended in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, repurchasing and retiring 4.6 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $300 million on a "trade date" basis. TJX records the repurchase of its stock on a cash basis, and the amounts reflected in the financial statements may vary from the above amounts due to the timing of settlement of repurchases.
