ATLANTA, Dec. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2014 third quarter, which ended November 1, 2014. Consolidated net sales increased 11% to $219.5 million compared to $197.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. In line with the Company's guidance, adjusted earnings per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were $0.01 compared to $0.10 in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. On a GAAP basis, earnings per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were breakeven compared to $0.05 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 are pleased to have delivered a solid increase to our top line and to have met our earnings expectations in the difficult environment we faced in the third quarter. Looking forward, although the retail environment has continued to be heavily promotional and traffic remains soft, we believe we are successfully navigating the holiday season and expect to report solid results. We expect to have positive comps in the fourth quarter, although not at the level originally planned, and anticipate that some early spring wholesale shipments may shift from January into February. Given this backdrop, we expect fourth quarter adjusted EPS in a range of $0.96 to $1.06 compared to $0.89 last year and, for the full year, adjusted EPS of $2.85 - $2.95.

Mr. Chubb continued, "While the current environment is challenging, we remain confident in the strength and market position of our brands and the capability of our management team. We remain focused across our organization on growth and the creation of value for our shareholders."

Operating Results

Tommy Bahama Net sales at Tommy Bahama increased 10% year-over-year to $125.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Growth was driven by increased wholesale sales, an e-commerce flash clearance sale, sales from additional retail stores and a comparable store sales increase of 2%. At the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2014, Tommy Bahama operated 150 stores consisting of 96 full-price stores, 14 restaurant-retail locations and 40 outlets. This compares to 137 stores at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Tommy Bahama's adjusted operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $0.8 million compared to $1.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. On a GAAP basis, Tommy Bahama's operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $0.4 million compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The decrease in operating income was primarily due to higher SG&A and lower gross margin, partially offset by the increased net sales. The higher SG&A reflects higher costs to support the growing Tommy Bahama business including infrastructure and operating costs associated with new stores. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to a larger proportion of net sales from the wholesale channel of distribution, outlet stores and e-commerce flash clearance sales.

Lilly Pulitzer Lilly Pulitzer's net sales increased 19% year-over-year to $36.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. The net sales increase was primarily due to higher sales at the semi-annual e-commerce flash sale, sales from additional retail stores and a comparable store sales increase of 7%. At the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2014, Lilly Pulitzer operated 28 stores compared to 22 stores at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Lilly Pulitzer's adjusted operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $4.2 million compared to $4.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, reflecting higher sales and an increase in gross margin, partially offset by the increase in SG&A to support the growing Lilly Pulitzer business. On a GAAP basis, operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $4.1 million compared to $3.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Lanier Clothes Net sales at Lanier Clothes increased to $35.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 from $30.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The net sales increase was due to the impact of a large, private label warehouse club program, which more than offset decreases in other programs. Operating income in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was comparable with the same period last year at $3.4 million, reflecting lower gross margin on higher sales. Gross margin declined as the private label business, which generally carries a lower gross margin than Lanier's branded businesses, represented a greater proportion of net sales in the quarter.

Ben Sherman Net sales at Ben Sherman were $18.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $18.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, primarily due to decreased wholesale sales. Ben Sherman's operating loss was $2.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to an operating loss of $1.9 million in the same period last year.

Corporate and Other For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, Corporate and Other had an adjusted operating loss of $3.6 million compared to an adjusted operating loss of $2.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, primarily due to higher corporate expenses and lower Oxford Golf sales. On a GAAP basis, Corporate and Other reported an operating loss of $3.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to an operating loss of $1.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Consolidated Operating Results

Net Sales For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, consolidated net sales were $219.5 million compared to $197.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 primarily due to net sales increases at Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer and Lanier Clothes.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, consolidated gross profit increased to $112.9 million from $104.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Gross margin in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 decreased to 51.5% from 53.1% in the prior year period primarily due to a change in sales mix.

SG&A In the third quarter of fiscal 2014, SG&A was $115.0 million, or 52.4% of net sales, compared to $104.4 million, or 52.9% of net sales, in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase in SG&A was primarily due to investments in infrastructure, incremental costs associated with operating additional retail stores and increased compensation expense.

Royalties and Other Income Royalties and other income were $4.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $4.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 with royalty income increases in both Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer.

Operating Income For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, consolidated operating income was $2.6 million compared to $4.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Interest Expense For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, interest expense was $0.8 million compared to $1.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 primarily due to lower borrowing rates and lower average borrowings during the third quarter of fiscal 2014.

Income Taxes The effective tax rate for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was 104.1% compared to 73.5% in the third 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 in a low earnings quarter.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Total inventories at the close of the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were $145.8 million, compared to $124.0 million at the close of the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Inventory levels increased to support anticipated fourth quarter sales growth, primarily for additional stores and comparable store sales growth.

As of November 1, 2014, the Company had $147.6 million of aggregate borrowings outstanding and $85.9 million of aggregate availability under its revolving credit agreements.

The Company's capital expenditures for fiscal 2014, including $36.5 million incurred during the first nine months of fiscal 2014, are expected to be approximately $55 million. These expenditures consist primarily of costs associated with both new 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.

Fiscal 2014 Outlook

For fiscal 2014, the Company expects adjusted earnings per share in a range of $2.85 to $2.95 and net sales in a range of $990 million to $1 billion. On a GAAP basis, the Company expects earnings per share in a range of $2.75 to $2.85 for the year. This compares with fiscal 2013 earnings per share of $2.81 on an adjusted basis and $2.75 on a GAAP basis on net sales of $917.1 million.

For the fourth quarter, ending on January 31, 2015, the Company expects net sales in a range of $267 million to $277 million and earnings per share in a range of $0.96 to $1.06 on an adjusted basis and $0.93 to $1.03 on a GAAP basis. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, earnings per share were $0.89 on an adjusted basis and $0.91 on a GAAP basis on net sales of $250.4 million.

The Company's effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 43% for the 2014 fiscal year.

Dividend

The Company announced that its Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend of $0.21 per share payable on January 30, 2015 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on January 16, 2015. The Company has paid dividends every quarter since it became publicly owned in 1960.
