--Record Earnings for the Year from Continuing Operations--
-- Fourth Quarter and Full Year Earnings Exceed Guidance--
--Company Increases Quarterly Dividend to $0.27 per Share--
--Company Initiates Guidance for Fiscal 2016--

ATLANTA, March 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM) today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and 2015 fiscal year ended January 30, 2016. In the fourth quarter, consolidated net sales increased to $259.6 million as compared to $249.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the quarter were $1.09 per diluted share compared to $1.08 in the same period of the prior year. Fourth quarter GAAP earnings from continuing operations were $1.06 per diluted share compared to $0.95 in the same period of the prior year.

For the full year of fiscal 2015, consolidated net sales increased 5% to $969.3 million as compared to $920.3 million in fiscal 2014. Full year adjusted earnings from continuing operations increased 5% to $3.64 per diluted share compared to $3.46 in the prior year. Full year GAAP earnings from continuing operations increased to $3.54 per diluted share as compared to $3.27 in the same period of the prior year.

Thomas C. Chubb III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “2015 was a good year for Oxford with net sales and earnings both growing by 5% over last year. While both of our principal brands, Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer, made positive contributions to our results, 2015 was nothing less than a stellar year for Lilly Pulitzer. Lilly’s resort chic brand message supported by beautiful, differentiated product, our flexible omni-channel distribution network, and innovative, on-brand communication and marketing drove a comparable store sales increase of 27%, a 22% increase in revenue and an increase in Lilly’s operating margin to almost 21%."

Mr. Chubb continued, “Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer both build powerful emotional connections in the mind of the consumer by associating products with happy experiences and happy places. While we believe the opportunity is better than ever for brands like these to grow and prosper, our industry, the consumer marketplace and the broader economy remain in a state of flux. We believe these conditions are manifesting themselves in reduced traffic in our stores. With this in mind, we think it is prudent to plan sales and earnings growth at a respectable, but moderate pace in 2016. We believe our potential for long-term sustainable growth with these brands is excellent and we will continue to add value for our shareholders.”

All financial results and outlook information included in this release, unless otherwise noted, are from continuing operations and all earnings per share amounts are on a diluted basis. For all periods presented, Oxford Golf results are combined with Lanier Clothes’ results and the combined business is now referred to as Lanier Apparel. The Company previously included Oxford Golf in Corporate and Other. For reference, tables reconciling GAAP to adjusted measures are included at the end of this release.

Consolidated Operating Results

Net Sales Consolidated net sales were $259.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $249.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, with mid-single digit percentage growth at both Tommy Bahama and Lilly Pulitzer partially offset by a $2.8 million sales decrease at Lanier Apparel.

For the full year of fiscal 2015, consolidated net sales grew 5% to $969.3 million from $920.3 million in fiscal 2014. Tommy Bahama sales increased 5% to $658.5 million, with a comparable store sales increase for the year of 3%. Lilly Pulitzer’s sales increased 22% in fiscal 2015 to $204.6 million with increases in all channels of distribution and a comparable store sales increase of 27%. As expected, sales at Lanier Apparel decreased in fiscal 2015. Lanier Apparel reported sales of $105.1 million compared to $126.4 million in the prior year.

Gross Margin and Gross Profit Adjusted gross margin in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was 55.9% compared to 56.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Adjusted gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 increased to $145.0 million from $140.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

Fiscal 2015 adjusted gross margin increased 109 basis points to 57.6% from 56.5% in the prior year primarily due to an increased percentage of total sales attributable to Lilly Pulitzer, which contributed the highest gross margin in the consolidated mix. Adjusted gross profit for fiscal 2015 increased to $558.4 million compared to $520.1 million in the prior year.

On a GAAP basis, gross margin in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was 55.8% as compared to 55.2% in the prior year period. Gross profit in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 on a GAAP basis was $144.7 million compared to $137.4 million in the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, fiscal 2015 gross margin was 57.6% as compared to 56.3% last year. Gross profit for the year on a GAAP basis rose to $558.1 million from $517.9 million in fiscal 2014.

SG&A In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, SG&A, as adjusted, was $119.3 million, or 46.0% of net sales, compared to $114.7 million, or 46.1% of net sales, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Full-year fiscal 2015 adjusted SG&A was $473.5 million, or 48.9% of net sales, compared to $437.0 million, or 47.5% of net sales last year. The increase in full-year SG&A was primarily due to incremental costs associated with operating additional retail stores and restaurants.

On a GAAP basis, SG&A for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $119.7 million, or 46.1% of net sales, compared to $115.2 million, or 46.3% of net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. On a GAAP basis, SG&A for fiscal 2015 was $475.0 million, or 49.0% of net sales, compared to $439.1 million, or 47.7% of net sales in the prior year.

Royalties and Other Income For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, royalties and other income were $3.4 million compared to $3.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Fiscal 2015 royalties and other income were $14.4 million compared to $13.9 million in fiscal 2014.

Operating Income In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, adjusted operating income was $29.1 million compared to $29.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Full-year fiscal 2015 adjusted operating income was $99.3 million compared to $97.0 million in the prior year.

On a GAAP basis, operating income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $28.5 million compared to $26.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. On a GAAP basis, operating income for fiscal 2015 was $97.5 million compared to $92.8 million in fiscal 2014.

Interest Expense Interest expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was $0.5 million compared to $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. For fiscal 2015, interest expense declined to $2.5 million from $3.2 million in fiscal 2014. The decrease was primarily due to lower average amounts outstanding and lower borrowing rates in the current year.

Income Taxes For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, the effective tax rate was 37.2% compared to 38.5% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. For fiscal 2015, the Company’s effective tax rate was 38.4% compared to 39.9% in fiscal 2014 primarily due to improved international results.

Discontinued Operations As announced on July 20, 2015, the Company completed the sale of its Ben Sherman business for £40.8 million, or $63.7 million, and Ben Sherman is reflected as discontinued operations for all periods presented. For fiscal 2015, the Company reported a net loss from discontinued operations of $1.69 per share.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Inventory increased modestly to $129.1 million at January 30, 2016 from $120.6 million at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 to support growth in the store base and anticipated sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

As of January 30, 2016, the Company had $44.0 million of borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit agreement compared to $104.8 million in the prior year. The year-over-year decrease in borrowings outstanding was primarily due to the repayment of indebtedness using the proceeds received from the sale of the Ben Sherman business. The Company had $185.9 million of unused availability under its revolving credit agreement as of January 30, 2016.

The Company’s capital expenditures for fiscal 2015 were $73.1 million, primarily related to new retail stores and restaurants, facility enhancements, information technology initiatives and retail store remodeling. Of the $73.1 million of capital expenditures, $13.5 million was funded by landlords through tenant improvement allowances.
