ATLANTA, Aug. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Industries, Inc. (NYSE:OXM) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2017 second quarter ended July 29, 2017. Consolidated net sales increased to $284.7 million compared to $283.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Earnings on a GAAP basis were $1.36 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to $1.44 in the same period of the prior year. On an adjusted basis, earnings were $1.44 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to $1.48 in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Thomas C. Chubb III, Chairman and CEO, commented, “Our dynamic portfolio of strong lifestyle brands continues to differentiate our business and fuel our success in a highly competitive and rapidly evolving consumer marketplace. We are pleased with our second quarter results, particularly for Tommy Bahama, and in the health of each our brands. The value our brands deliver to customers as well as our continued focus on execution gives us confidence in our ability to achieve our full-year financial, operational and strategic objectives.”

Mr. Chubb continued, “Our retail stores continue to generate a very healthy return on investment. Strong visual merchandising and a clear brand message provide an important point of connection with our consumers and support an opportunity for measured growth as we go forward. Our confidence in this opportunity is reflected in our acquisition of the “In the Pink” and “Pink Palm” licensed Lilly Pulitzer signature stores. Lilly’s position as a resort lifestyle brand is a competitive advantage and the addition of stores in key resort locations such as Nantucket, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard allows us to further leverage that advantage.”

Mr. Chubb concluded, “While key brick and mortar locations will always be an important point of distribution for each of our brands, our fastest growing channel of distribution is in our e-commerce businesses. We are already a market leader and are keenly focused on maintaining that position as the market evolves into a digital first environment. Our Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer and Southern Tide brands have distinct competitive advantages as well as talented teams operating within a culture of excellence that brings out their best efforts. This is, in any environment, a formula for success.”

Consolidated Operating Results

Consolidated net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 1% to $284.7 million. This modest increase included year over year increases at Tommy Bahama and Southern Tide partially offset by a decrease at Lanier Apparel. Lilly Pulitzer’s sales were essentially flat with the prior year.

Gross profit in the second quarter increased to $166.0 million compared to $164.8 million in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was 58.3% compared to 58.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. On an adjusted basis, gross margin expanded to 58.8% compared to 58.2% in the prior year.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2017, SG&A was 46.7% as a percentage of net sales or $132.9 million compared to 45.7% or $129.4 million in the prior year’s second quarter. The increase in SG&A was primarily due to incremental costs associated with operating additional retail stores and increased incentive compensation.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2017, royalties and other operating income were flat with the prior year at $3.3 million.

Operating income in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $36.4 million compared to $38.7 million in the same period of the prior year. On an adjusted basis, operating income was $38.4 million compared to $39.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Interest expense for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $0.7 million compared to $1.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Inventory decreased 11% to $119.6 million at July 29, 2017 from $133.7 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2016 reflecting lower inventories at Lanier Apparel, Southern Tide and Tommy Bahama.

As of July 29, 2017, the Company had $37.6 million of borrowings outstanding under its $325 million revolving credit agreement compared to $105.9 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2016, with the decrease attributable to strong cash flow from operations. The Company ended the quarter with $215.3 million of unused availability under its credit agreement.

Outlook for Third Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017

The Company initiated its guidance for the third quarter of fiscal 2017, ending on October 28, 2017. The Company expects net sales in a range from $240 million to $250 million compared to net sales of $222.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. Earnings per share on a GAAP basis are expected to be in a range of $0.04 to $0.14 in the third quarter. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 are expected to be in a range of $0.09 to $0.19. This compares with a third quarter fiscal 2016 loss per share of $0.10 and an adjusted loss per share of $0.07.

The Company has affirmed its adjusted earnings outlook for the full 2017 fiscal year and has revised its GAAP earnings outlook due to the impact of LIFO and purchase accounting. GAAP earnings per share are now expected to be between $3.23 and $3.43. Adjusted earnings per share are expected to be between $3.50 and $3.70. This compares to earnings on a GAAP basis of $3.27 per share and, on an adjusted basis, $3.30 per share in fiscal 2016. The Company expects net sales to grow to between $1.085 billion to $1.105 billion as compared to Fiscal 2016 net sales of $1.023 billion.

The Company’s effective tax rate for fiscal 2017 is expected to approach 39% compared to 37% in the full 2016 fiscal year, with the increase reflecting the unfavorable impact of the vesting of stock awards in the first quarter and a reduction in the utilization of operating loss carryforwards relative to fiscal 2016. Full year interest expense is estimated to be approximately $3.4 million.

Capital expenditures in fiscal 2017, including $18.5 million in the first half of fiscal 2017, are expected to be approximately $50 million, primarily reflecting investments in information technology initiatives, new retail stores and restaurants, and investments to remodel and relocate existing retail stores.

Dividend

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend of $0.27 per share payable on October 27, 2017 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 13, 2017. The Company has paid dividends every quarter since it became publicly owned in 1960.

The Company will hold a conference call with senior management to discuss its financial results at 4:30 p.m. ET today. A live web cast of the conference call will be available on the Company’s website at www.oxfordinc.com.

Basis of Presentation

All financial results and outlook information included in this release, unless otherwise noted, are from continuing operations and all per share amounts are on a diluted basis.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company reports its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To supplement these consolidated financial results, management believes that a presentation and discussion of certain financial measures on an adjusted basis, which exclude certain non-operating or discrete gains, charges or other items, may provide a more meaningful basis on which investors may compare the Company’s ongoing results of operations between periods. These measures include adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A and adjusted operating income, among others. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operational and planning decisions to evaluate the Company’s ongoing performance. Management also uses these adjusted financial measures to discuss its business with investment and other financial institutions, its board of directors and others. Reconciliations of these adjusted measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are presented in tables included at the end of this release. These reconciliations present adjusted operating results information for certain historical and future periods.
