Kontoor Brands Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results

Second Quarter 2019 GAAP EPS of $0.67, Adjusted EPS of $0.96

Reaffirms Full-Year 2019 Outlook

GREENSBORO, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$KTB #WeAreKontoor–Kontoor Brands, Inc. (NYSE:KTB), a global lifestyle apparel company, with a portfolio led by two of the world’s most iconic consumer brands, Wrangler®and Lee®, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 29, 2019. Kontoor became an independent, publicly traded company on May 23, 2019.

“The restructuring and cost savings actions we’ve taken to simplify and stabilize the organization are paying off and are setting the foundation for improved profitability in the second half of 2019 and beyond,” said Scott Baxter, President and Chief Executive Officer, Kontoor Brands. “We will remain disciplined in our approach and focused on our total shareholder return goal of 8 to 10 percent supported by an industry leading dividend.”

Second Quarter 2019 Income Statement Review

This release refers to “adjusted” amounts that exclude the impact of restructuring and separation costs, changes in our business model and other adjustments, as well as “constant currency” figures, which are further described in the Non-GAAP Financial Measures paragraph below.

Revenue decreased 8 percent to $610 million on a reported basis in the second quarter of 2019 and was down 7 percent in constant currency. On an adjusted basis, revenue declined 6 percent to $602 million.

Adjusted revenue declines, during the quarter, were primarily driven by three factors:

  • Impacts of a major U.S. retailer bankruptcy in Q4 2018, which represented about 2 points of the decline;
  • Actions to exit an underperforming country in Europe and to change business models in select markets, which contributed an additional 2 points to the decline; and,
  • Foreign currency headwinds that impacted revenues by approximately 1 point.

During the second quarter, U.S. revenue was $487 million, down 3 percent on a reported basis. Adjusted U.S. revenues declined 1 percent. International revenue was $123 million, down 25 percent on a reported basis and down 19 percent in constant currency, driven primarily by strategic actions to exit an underperforming country, as well as business model changes in select markets. Adjusted international revenues declined 23 percent, with strategic actions and timing shifts of shipments largely driving the declines.

Wrangler® brand global revenue decreased 8 percent to $364 million on a reported basis, down 7 percent in constant currency, largely driven by international performance. U.S. revenue declined 3 percent due to timing shifts of shipments and the customer bankruptcy. Adjusted global revenues declined 8 percent. Excluding currency and the impact of the customer bankruptcy, Wrangler® adjusted revenue would have been down 6 percent in the quarter. Of note, excluding the bankruptcy, Wrangler’s U.S wholesale performance was up 2 percent in the first half of 2019, and we anticipate global sales to accelerate in the second half of this year.

Lee® brand global revenue decreased 5 percent to $207 million on a reported basis, down 3 percent in constant currency. Adjusted global revenues declined 5 percent. Excluding currency and the impact of the customer bankruptcy, Lee® adjusted revenue would have increased 1 percent in the quarter.

Other (including non-branded VF Outlet™ and Rock & Republic®) global revenue decreased 20 percent to $39 million, while on an adjusted basis, Other global revenue decreased 2 percent to $35 million.

Gross margin decreased 160 basis points to 38.6 percent on a reported basis. On an adjusted basis, gross margin was down 110 basis points to 40.0 percent. Declines were primarily due to charges associated with global restructuring activities and related actions, as well as the impacts of unfavorable channel mix driven by lower international sales and higher levels of distressed sales, as well as negative impacts from foreign currency. The comparative performance in gross margin will improve in the second half of the year versus the first half.

Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses were $182 million on a reported basis, up 110 basis points, as a percent of revenue. On an adjusted basis, SG&A was $167 million, down 40 basis points as a percent of revenue, driven by expense control.

Operating income on a reported basis was $54 million. On an adjusted basis, operating income was $74 million, down 11 percent. Operating margin on a reported basis declined 260 basis points to 8.8 percent. Adjusted operating margin decreased 70 basis points to 12.3 percent.

Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) on a reported basis was $60 million, down 26 percent. Adjusted EBITDA was $82 million, down 10 percent. EBITDA margin on a reported basis declined 250 basis points to 9.9 percent. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased 60 basis points to 13.6 percent.

Earnings per share was $0.67 on a reported basis. Adjusted earnings per share was $0.96.

Balance Sheet

The company ended second quarter 2019 with $77 million in cash and cash equivalents, and approximately $1 billion in total debt, after paying down approximately $50 million of debt during the quarter.

On July 23, 2019, Kontoor Brands’ Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.56 per share payable on September 20, 2019, to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 10, 2019.

Inventory at the end of second quarter 2019 was $538 million, up 9 percent compared to the prior year period, primarily due to inventory built in anticipation of plants closed during the quarter. At year-end, inventory levels are expected to improve and be relatively flat to below prior year levels.

Full Year 2019 Outlook Reaffirmed

“We have the pieces in place and see a clear path to achieving our long-term revenue growth, margin improvement, and cash generation goals,” said Baxter. “These improvements start to gain traction in the second half of 2019 as our business model changes and cost improvement initiatives begin to take hold.”

Kontoor Brands’ outlook for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019, remains unchanged:

  • Revenue is expected to exceed $2.5 billion, reflecting a mid-single digit decline compared with full year 2018 adjusted revenue. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currency exchange rates, impacts of a prior year U.S. retailer bankruptcy, and strategic business exits, full year 2019 revenue is expected to be relatively consistent with full year 2018 adjusted revenue. First half reported revenue declined mid-single digits and the company expects second half revenue to improve, with the fourth quarter benefiting the most from strategic actions and the Q4 2018 customer bankruptcy comparison.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $340 million and $360 million, reflecting a mid-single digit to low double-digit decline compared with full year 2018 adjusted EBITDA. As anticipated, the impacts of strategic actions and the prior year U.S. retailer bankruptcy weighed on our second quarter performance. We expect to see improved second half performance as benefits from restructuring and cost savings initiatives begin to more fully manifest. As planned, inventory levels are expected to remain elevated during the third quarter of the year due to the inventory built during the second quarter in anticipation of plants closed. The company expects second half adjusted EBITDA to be more weighted to the fourth quarter.
  • Capital Expenditures are expected to range between $55 million and $65 million, including approximately $30 million to $40 million to support the design and implementation of a global enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. As previously announced, the global ERP system implementation is expected to require approximately $80 million to $90 million of capital investment during a two-to-three year period and is expected to result in significant efficiencies and cost savings, once fully implemented.
  • Other full year assumptions include an effective tax rate of approximately 24 percent. Interest expense should be approximately $40 million in 2019, or $60 million on an annualized basis.

Reaffirmed 2020 to 2021 Financial Roadmap

  • Revenue is expected to increase at a low-single digit compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to increase at a mid-single digit CAGR over the period.
  • Capital Expenditures are expected to range between $105 million and $110 million in aggregate over the period.

Constant Currency Financial Information

The Company 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 the Company 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.
