ATLANTA, June 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2014 first quarter ended May 3, 2014. Consolidated net sales increased 10% to $257.6 million compared to $234.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. On an adjusted basis, earnings grew 15% to $0.94 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $0.82 in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. On a GAAP basis, earnings grew to $0.91 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $0.82 in the same period of the prior year. For reference, tables reconciling GAAP to adjusted measures are included at the end of this release.

Thomas C. Chubb III, CEO and President, commented, "We were quite pleased with our first quarter results. In particular, Lilly Pulitzer's remarkable performance has continued with product assortments and a marketing campaign that are clearly resonating with consumers. Tommy Bahama, while impacted by lower traffic early in the quarter, saw a nice rebound in April and ultimately delivered a solid quarter in a very challenging market."

Mr. Chubb concluded, "Investment in the expansion of these great brands, Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer, remains our key strategic focus. At the same time, we continue to look to Lanier Clothes for strong cash flow and believe Ben Sherman is properly positioned to deliver improved results during the remainder of the year. We are confident that, as we execute our plans in each business, we will drive outstanding value to our shareholders."

Operating Results

Tommy Bahama Tommy Bahama delivered a 5% year-over-year net sales increase to $158.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. The increased sales were primarily due to the operation of additional stores and the 2013 acquisition of the Tommy Bahama Canadian business, partially offset by a 1% decrease in comparable store sales and weakness in the outlet store business. While comparable store sales were negative in February and March, April comparable store sales were positive as traffic improved. At the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2014, Tommy Bahama operated 141 stores including 91 full-price stores, 14 restaurant-retail locations and 36 outlets. This compares to 121 stores at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Tommy Bahama's adjusted operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $20.3 million compared to $21.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The decrease resulted primarily from increased SG&A, a slight decrease in gross margin and the modest comparable store sales decrease. On a GAAP basis, Tommy Bahama's operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $19.9 million compared to $21.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Lilly Pulitzer Lilly Pulitzer's net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 rose 28% to $50.4 million, with strength across multiple product categories and increases in all channels of distribution, including a comparable store sales increase of 34%. As of May 3, 2014, Lilly Pulitzer operated 26 retail stores, including three stores opened during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 21 retail stores as of May 4, 2013.

Lilly Pulitzer's adjusted operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 increased 34% to $14.9 million driven by increased sales and an increase in gross margin. On a GAAP basis, operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $14.8 million compared to $11.0 million in the same period of the prior year.

Lanier Clothes Net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 increased to $28.7 million from $27.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Operating income for the quarter was $2.7 million compared to $2.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Ben Sherman For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, which is historically Ben Sherman's smallest quarter, net sales were $15.1 million compared to $12.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The sales growth was primarily due to the liquidation of certain aged inventory, the impact of foreign currency translation, and the improved performance of its retail stores and concessions in the U.K. and Europe. The operating loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 improved slightly to $4.7 million compared to $4.8 million in the prior year period, despite a $0.3 million unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation.

Corporate and Other For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, Corporate and Other reported an adjusted operating loss of $4.1 million, comparable to an adjusted operating loss of $4.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. On a GAAP basis, Corporate and Other reported a loss of $4.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to a loss of $4.0 million in the same period of the prior year.

Consolidated Operating Results

Net Sales For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, consolidated net sales grew by 10% to $257.6 million compared to $234.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, reflecting increases in all operating groups.

Gross Margin and Gross Profit For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, consolidated gross margin of 57.2% was comparable with the prior year period. Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 increased to $147.3 million from $134.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

SG&A For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, SG&A was $123.2 million, or 47.8% of net sales, compared to $113.0 million, or 48.3% of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase in SG&A was primarily due to incremental costs associated with operating additional retail stores, investments in infrastructure and systems, and increased compensation expense.

Royalties and Other Income Royalties and other income were $4.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $5.1 million the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The prior year included $0.4 million of royalty income from Tommy Bahama's Canadian licensed business, which was acquired by the Company in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Operating Income For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, consolidated operating income increased 9% to $28.5 million compared to $26.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Interest Expense For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, interest expense was $1.1 million compared to $0.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Income Taxes The effective tax rate for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was 45.4% compared to 45.8% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The rate in both periods was unfavorably impacted by the Company's inability to recognize a tax benefit for losses in foreign jurisdictions.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

The Company increased inventory to $128.3 million at May 3, 2014 from $95.8 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Inventory levels were higher primarily to support anticipated sales growth, particularly within the direct to consumer business, and the earlier receipt of shipments from suppliers.

As of May 3, 2014, the Company had $142.0 million of borrowings outstanding and $94.9 million of unused availability under its U.S. and U.K revolving credit facilities.

The Company's anticipated capital expenditures for fiscal 2014, including $6.7 million incurred during the first quarter, are expected to be approximately $55 million. These expenditures are expected to consist primarily of costs associated with both new retail and remodeled retail stores and restaurants. The Company will also continue to invest in information technology and e-commerce capabilities and make certain enhancements to its facilities.

Outlook for Second Quarter and Fiscal Year 2014

The Company initiated its guidance for the second quarter, ending on August 2, 2014. The Company expects net sales in a range from $245 to $255 million compared to net sales of $235.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be in a range of $0.85 to $0.95 and GAAP earnings per share are expected to be in a range of $0.82 - $0.92. This compares with second quarter fiscal 2013 adjusted earnings per share of $1.01 and GAAP earnings per share of $0.96.

The expected year-over-year decrease in earnings in the second quarter is primarily due to anticipated lower levels of wholesale replenishment and re-orders due to market softness in the spring selling season, higher promotional activity in the Tommy Bahama outlet business and higher compensation expense. Additionally, the effective tax rate for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 is expected to be approximately 43% compared to 40.7% in the prior year period. In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company's tax rate reflected a $0.6 million favorable impact of a reduction in the enacted tax rate in the U.K.

For fiscal 2014, the Company continues to expect net sales in the $980 million to $1 billion range and adjusted earnings per share in a range of $3.00 to $3.15. On a GAAP basis, the Company continues to expect earnings per share in a range of $2.88 to $3.03. This compares with fiscal 2013 earnings per share of $2.81 on an adjusted basis and $2.75 on a GAAP basis. The effective tax rate for fiscal 2014 is expected to be approximately 42.5% compared to 43.7% in fiscal 2013.
