GREENSBORO, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended June 30, 2018. All per share amounts are presented on a diluted basis. This release refers to “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts, terms that are described under the heading “Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts are the same. This release also refers to “continuing” and “discontinued” operations amounts, which are concepts described under the heading “Discontinued Operations - Nautica® Brand Business and Licensing Business.” Unless otherwise noted, results presented are based on continuing operations. This release also refers to “adjusted” amounts, terms that are described under the heading “Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Williamson-Dickie, Icebreaker® and Altra® Transaction and Deal Related Expenses and the Provisional Impact of U.S. Tax Legislation.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “adjusted” amounts are the same.

“VF's first quarter results were strong, driven by continued broad based acceleration across our core brands and platforms,” said Steve Rendle, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are executing well against our 2021 growth plan and continuing on our journey to reshape the portfolio and transform VF into a purpose-led, performance driven, consumer-centric organization focused on and committed to delivering superior returns to shareholders.”

Reportable Segment Change

In light of recently completed acquisitions, divestitures, and organizational realignments, the company has changed its reporting structure to better support and assess the operations of the business. The company's new reportable segments are Outdoor, Active, Work and Jeans. In this release, the company has recast historical financial information to reflect the new reportable segments. The recast historical financial information is included in the attached supplemental financial tables.

Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency

This release refers to “reported” amounts in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), which include translation impacts from foreign currency exchange rates. This release also refers to “constant dollar” amounts, which exclude the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. Reconciliations of GAAP measures to constant currency amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

Discontinued Operations - Nautica® Brand Business and Licensing Business

On April 30, 2018, the company completed the sale of its Nautica® brand business. Accordingly, the company has classified the assets and liabilities of the Nautica® brand business as held-for-sale through the date of sale and has included the operating results of this business in discontinued operations for all periods presented.

On April 28, 2017, the company completed the sale of its Licensed Sports Group (LSG) business, including the Majestic® brand. In conjunction with the LSG divestiture, VF executed its plan to entirely exit the licensing business and completed the sale of the assets of the JanSport® brand collegiate business in the fourth quarter of 2017. Accordingly, the company has removed the assets and liabilities of the licensing business as of the dates noted above and included the operating results of these businesses in discontinued operations for all periods presented.

The company’s after-tax net income from discontinued operations was $0.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, which includes the operating results of the Nautica® brand business during the period through the date of sale.

Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Williamson-Dickie, Icebreaker® and Altra® Transaction and Deal Related Expenses and the Provisional Impact of U.S. Tax Legislation

This release refers to adjusted amounts that exclude transaction and deal related expenses associated with the acquisitions of Williamson-Dickie, Icebreaker® and Altra®. Total transaction and deal related expenses were approximately $19 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Adjusted amounts in this release also exclude the provisional amounts recorded due to recent U.S. tax legislation. On December 22, 2017, the U.S. government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Measurement period adjustments related to the provisional net charge resulted in a benefit of approximately $3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Combined, the above net charges negatively impacted earnings per share by $0.03 during the first quarter of fiscal 2019. All adjusted amounts referenced herein exclude the effects of these amounts.

Reconciliations of measures calculated in accordance with GAAP to adjusted amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

First Quarter Fiscal 2019 Income Statement Review

  • Revenue increased 23 percent (up 21 percent in constant dollars) to $2.8 billion, including a $249 million revenue contribution from the Williamson-Dickie, Icebreaker® and Altra® acquisitions. Excluding acquisitions, revenue increased 12 percent (up 10 percent in constant dollars), driven by broad-based strength across VF’s international and direct-to-consumer platforms and Active and Work segments.
  • Gross margin improved 70 basis points to 50.3 percent, as benefits from a mix-shift toward higher margin businesses and continued focus on fundamentals were partially offset by the impact of acquisitions. On an adjusted basis, gross margin increased 90 basis points to 50.5 percent. Adjusted gross margin, excluding acquisitions, increased 170 basis points to 51.3 percent.
  • Operating income on a reported basis was $231 million. On an adjusted basis, operating income increased 57 percent to $250 million, including an $20 million contribution from acquisitions. Operating margin on a reported basis increased 130 basis points to 8.3 percent. Adjusted operating margin increased 200 basis points to 9.0 percent. Adjusted operating margin, excluding acquisitions, increased 210 basis points to 9.1 percent.
  • Earnings per share was $0.40 on a reported basis. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share increased 62 percent (56 percent in constant dollars) to $0.43, including a $0.04 contribution from acquisitions.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Inventories were up 20 percent compared with the same period last year. Excluding the impact of acquisitions, inventories increased 2 percent. The company has $4 billion remaining under its current share repurchase authorization.

Adjusted Full Year Fiscal 2019 Outlook

The following outlook for fiscal year 2019 is on an adjusted basis and has been updated to include the following:

  • Revenue is now expected to be in the range of $13.6 billion to $13.7 billion, reflecting an increase of 10 percent to 11 percent, and includes more than a $150 million negative impact from unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates relative to the prior outlook. This compares to the previous expectation of revenue between $13.45 billion and $13.55 billion, which reflected a 9 percent to 10 percent increase. By segment, revenue for Outdoor is expected to increase 6 percent to 8 percent; revenue for Active is expected to increase 13 percent to 14 percent; revenue for Work is expected to increase more than 35 percent; and, revenue for Jeans is expected to be about flat compared to the prior year.
  • International revenue is now expected to increase between 12 percent and 13 percent versus the previous expectation of a 13 percent to 15 percent increase. By geographic region, Europe revenue is expected to increase 12 percent to 13 percent (previously 13 percent to 15 percent); Asia Pacific revenue is expected to increase 14 percent to 15 percent (previously 15 percent to 17 percent); and, Americas (non-U.S.) revenue is expected to increase 9 percent to 10 percent (previously 10 percent to 12 percent).
  • Direct-to-consumer revenue is now expected to increase between 11 percent and 13 percent versus the previous expectation of an 8 percent to 10 percent increase. Digital revenue is now expected to increase more than 30 percent versus the previous expectation of a more than 25 percent increase.
  • Gross margin is still expected to approximate 51 percent.
  • Operating margin is now expected to increase 70 basis points to about 13.4 percent, versus the previous expectation of about 13.2 percent.
  • Earnings per share is now expected to be in the range of $3.52 to $3.57, reflecting an increase of 12 percent to 14 percent, and includes about a $0.06 negative impact from unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates relative to the prior outlook. This compares to the previous expectation of $3.48 to $3.53, which reflected an increase of between 11 percent and 13 percent.
  • Cash flow from operations is now expected to exceed $1.7 billion (up from $1.6 billion previously).
  • Other full year assumptions include an effective tax rate of approximately 16.5 percent (down from 17 percent previously) and capital expenditures of approximately $275 million.

Constant Currency Financial Information
 
VF is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by VF from translating its foreign revenues and expenses into U.S. dollars. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported operating results. As a supplement to our reported operating results, we present constant currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. We use constant currency information to provide a framework to assess how our business performed excluding the effects of changes in the rates used to calculate foreign currency translation. Management believes this information is useful to investors to facilitate comparison of operating results and better identify trends in our businesses.
 
To calculate foreign currency translation on a constant currency basis, operating results for the current year period for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable period of the prior year (rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period).
 
These constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, our operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
 
The financial information above has been presented on a GAAP basis, on an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of transaction and deal related costs and the provisional impact of tax reform, and on an adjusted organic basis, which excludes the operating results of Williamson-Dickie, Icebreaker® and Altra®. Contributions from acquisitions also exclude transaction and deal related costs. These adjusted presentations are non-GAAP measures. Management believes these measures provide investors with useful supplemental information regarding VF's underlying business trends and the performance of VF's ongoing operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations.
 
Management uses the above financial measures internally in its budgeting and review process and, in some cases, as a factor in determining compensation. While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, VF's operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
