FREMONT, Calif., March 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE: TLRD) today announced consolidated financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended January 28, 2017 and provided its outlook for fiscal 2017.

Fourth quarter 2016 GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.62, compared to a loss of $21.86 in the same period a year ago.  Fourth quarter 2016 GAAP operating loss includes a $14 million non-cash impairment charge related to fixed assets in our Macy's tuxedo stores. Last year's fourth quarter results included approximately $1.18 billion of goodwill, intangible asset and other impairment charges primarily related to Jos. A. Bank.  Excluding certain items(1), fourth quarter 2016 adjusted diluted loss per share(1) was $0.19, compared to adjusted diluted loss per share of $0.30 in the fourth quarter of 2015. 

Full year 2016 GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.51, compared to GAAP loss per share of $21.26 last year. Fiscal 2016 adjusted diluted EPS(1) was $1.76, compared to adjusted diluted EPS of $1.80 last year.

MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

Doug Ewert, president and chief executive officer of Tailored Brands, stated, "Fiscal 2016 was a year of significant strategic progress for Tailored Brands as we executed on our plans to right-size our store base, optimize our cost structure, and return Jos. A. Bank to a path of sustained profitable growth.  I am pleased with our delivery on our operational initiatives that we established for 2016.  We closed 233 stores under our store rationalization program, we achieved over $60 million in cost savings through our profit improvement plan, and we stabilized and began to turn around Jos. A. Bank.  With a focus on continued operational excellence, we have built a strong foundation for future growth.

"Unfortunately, the challenging retail environment resulted in soft traffic across our retail brands, which drove lower than anticipated fourth quarter and full year net sales and gross margins.  Despite this, we delivered near the mid-point of our full year adjusted EPS guidance through disciplined expense management and a lower effective tax rate. We also generated $243 million of cash flow from operations in 2016.

"While we are striving for improved performance in 2017, in anticipation of a continuation of current business trends, we project diluted EPS in the range of $1.45 to $1.75 for fiscal 2017.  Our outlook assumes Men's Wearhouse comparable sales down low-single digits, Jos. A. Bank comparable sales up mid-single digits, and Moores and K&G comparable sales down mid-single-digits in 2017.  Our outlook for 2017 also assumes a decline in our Corporate Apparel business as we lap the large airline uniform program we rolled out in 2016," said Ewert.

"Our 2017 plan includes reinvestment of some of the cost savings we achieved to support our omni-channel strategies.  The demand for convenience, a more personalized experience and casual wardrobe options has never been more pronounced.  In response, we are accelerating our efforts to translate our high-service, in-store experience online and to drive additional traffic to our stores. 

"In addition, our outlook includes an estimated operating loss of between $19 million and $20 million from the Macy's tuxedo business.  During 2016, our Macy's tuxedo business did not ramp as expected.  We are actively engaged in discussions with Macy's to restructure our agreement.  Due to the early stages of our negotiations, our current 2017 plan assumes no further Macy's store expansion and that adjusted operating losses grow from $14 million in 2016 to between $19 million to $20 million in 2017 under the terms of the current agreement.  Given current and forecasted results, and the likelihood that a restructured agreement will involve a different operating model, we recorded an asset impairment charge of $14 million in the fourth quarter related to fixed assets in the Macy's stores," said Ewert.

"We remain focused on delivering long-term value to our shareholders with disciplined capital management and prudent investment in our organic growth strategies. In 2017, we plan to invest approximately $90 million in capital expenditures and to use free cash flow to pay down debt."

SALES REVIEW

The table that follows is a summary of total net sales for the fourth quarter and full year ended January 28, 2017.  The dollars shown are U.S. dollars in millions and, due to rounded numbers, may not sum.  Comparable sales exclude the net sales of a store for any month of one period if the store was not owned or open throughout the same month of the prior period and include e-commerce net sales.  The Moores comparable sales change is based on the Canadian dollar.  In addition, Jos. A. Bank comparable sales exclude factory stores.  Fiscal 2015 comparable sales shown below for Jos. A. Bank are based on a comparison to Jos. A. Bank's fiscal 2014 sales, a portion of which was prior to the acquisition on June 18, 2014.

Net sales for the fourth quarter at our largest brand, Men's Wearhouse, decreased 3.7% and comparable sales decreased 2.2% from last year's fourth quarter.  The decrease in comparable sales resulted primarily from decreases in both average transactions per store and average unit retail (net selling prices), partially offset by increases in units per transaction and higher rental services revenue.  Comparable rental services revenue increased 9.4% in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Jos. A. Bank comparable sales for the fourth quarter increased 3.6% primarily due to increases in both average transactions per store and units per transaction, partially offset by a decrease in average unit retail.  Jos. A. Bank net sales for the fourth quarter decreased 4.7% due to significant store closures in 2016 as part of the Company's store rationalization program that more than offset comparable sales increases.

K&G comparable sales for the fourth quarter decreased 5.2% primarily due to lower average transactions per store partially offset by an increase in units per transaction and average unit retail. 

Moores comparable sales for the fourth quarter decreased 5.4% primarily due to decreases in both average transactions per store and units per transaction partially offset by an increase in average unit retail.  However, total net sales for Moores decreased only 2.1% primarily due to favorable currency fluctuations.

Net sales for the Corporate Apparel segment for the fourth quarter decreased 4.8% primarily due to unfavorable currency fluctuations partially offset by higher U.S. sales.

Total gross margin decreased $21.1 million and the gross margin rate decreased 110 basis points.  Retail gross margin dollars decreased $19.1 million primarily due to lower sales while the retail gross margin rate decreased 100 basis points primarily due to the deleveraging of procurement and distribution costs at Jos. A. Bank, a lower selling margin rate at Men's Wearhouse as a result of increased clearance sales and a lower selling margin rate at Moores due to increased promotional activity. Excluding the impact of the factory/outlet stores last year, both total and retail gross margin decreased 110 basis points.

On a stand-alone basis, Jos. A. Bank retail clothing product selling margin excluding factory stores increased approximately 50 basis points due to lower product costs. 

Primarily due to the Company's cost reduction efforts, SG&A expenses decreased $16.5 million and decreased 80 basis points as a percent of total sales. 

Operating income increased $5.4 million and the effective tax rate was 42.3%. 

Adjusted net loss was $9.2 million, or $0.19 adjusted diluted loss per share, compared to adjusted diluted loss per share of $0.30 in the last year's fourth quarter.

(1) See Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures for reconciliation to GAAP.

(2) Gross margin percent of related sales.

 

Total gross margin decreased $58.7 million and 30 basis points as a percent of sales.  Retail gross margin decreased $76.0 million primarily due to lower sales and decreased 20 basis points as a percent of retail sales. Excluding the impact of the factory/outlet stores from both periods, both total gross margin and retail gross margin increased by 10 basis points.

On a stand-alone basis, Jos. A. Bank retail clothing product selling margin excluding factory stores increased approximately 360 basis points due to lower product costs and increased average unit retail. 

Primarily due to the Company's cost reduction efforts, SG&A expenses decreased $34.0 million.

Operating income decreased $9.3 million or 3.9% and the effective tax rate was 31.7%. 

Adjusted net earnings were $86.2 million, or $1.76 adjusted EPS, compared to adjusted EPS of $1.80 last year.

BALANCE SHEET

Total debt at the end of fiscal 2016 was approximately $1.6 billion.  The Company made its scheduled $1.8 million payment on its term loan during the fourth quarter.  There were no borrowings outstanding on our revolving credit facility at the end of fiscal 2016.

Inventories decreased $67.0 million to $955.5 million at the end of fiscal 2016 primarily due lower inventories at Jos. A. Bank as well as the weaker exchange rate from British pounds to U.S. dollars. 

Cash flow from operating activities for fiscal 2016 was $242.6 million compared to $131.7 million in the same period last year.  The increase was primarily due to working capital items including the impact of income tax refunds and lower inventories.

Capital expenditures for fiscal 2016 were $99.7 million compared to $115.5 million in the prior year.

2017 OUTLOOK

  • Earnings per Share: For fiscal 2017, the Company expects to achieve diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.45 to $1.75.
  • Comparable Sales: The Company expects comparable sales in fiscal 2017 for Men's Wearhouse to be down low-single digits, Jos. A. Bank to increase mid-single digits, and Moores and K&G to be down mid-single digits.
  • Tax Rate: For fiscal 2017, the Company expects the effective tax rate to be approximately 33%.
  • Capital Expenditures: The Company expects capital expenditures of approximately $90 million for fiscal 2017.
  • Real Estate: The Company expects approximately net 10 store closures in fiscal 2017.

The Company noted that fiscal 2017 is a 53-week year versus the 52-week fiscal 2016.

UNAUDITED NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(In thousands, except per share amounts)

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to providing financial results in accordance with GAAP, we have provided adjusted information for the fiscal fourth quarters and twelve months of 2016 and 2015.  This non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of the Company's financial performance by removing the impacts of large, unusual or unique transactions that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results.  These items primarily consisted of goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, costs related to our store rationalization and profit improvement programs, asset impairment charges and certain items related to the acquisition and integration of Jos. A. Bank.  Management uses these adjusted results to assess the Company's performance, to make decisions about how to allocate resources and to develop expectations for future operating performance.  In addition, adjusted EPS is used as a performance measure in the Company's executive compensation program to determine the number of performance units that are ultimately earned for certain equity awards.

The non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or as being superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Management strongly encourages investors and shareholders to review the Company's financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. 

Reconciliations of non-GAAP information to our actual results follow and amounts may not sum due to rounded numbers.  In addition, only the line items affected by adjustments are shown in the tables.
