Company Winds Down Tuxedo Rental Partnership with Macy's

FREMONT, Calif., May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE: TLRD) today announced that it has updated its outlook for fiscal 2017 to reflect the wind down of the tuxedo rental license business established between Macy's, Inc. and Men's Wearhouse on June 9, 2015.

(Editor's Note: Tailored Brands this afternoon also issued a separate joint news release with Macy's, Inc. announcing the wind down of the partnership.)

As a result of the agreement, Tailored Brands, Inc. expects to report one-time charges of approximately $17 million, of which $2.5 million are non-cash costs.  Excluding these charges, the Company expects to report a fiscal 2017 operating loss on the Macy's tuxedo rental business in the range of $7 million to $8 million, compared with its previous outlook of an operating loss of $19 million to $20 million. 

Based on the new agreement, the Company now expects to report fiscal 2017 diluted EPS in the range of $1.37 to $1.67, and adjusted diluted EPS, which excludes the one-time charges, of $1.60 to $1.90.  This compares to previous guidance of diluted EPS in the range of $1.45 to $1.75.  See Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures below for additional information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes non-GAAP financial information, which 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, currently consisting of costs associated with the termination of our tuxedo rental license agreement with Macy's.  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. 

A reconciliation of forecasted diluted EPS on a GAAP basis to forecasted diluted EPS on a non-GAAP adjusted basis for fiscal 2017 is presented in the table below:
