NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH] reported 2017 third quarter results.

Non-GAAP Amounts:

Amounts stated to be on a non-GAAP basis exclude the items that are described below under the heading “Non-GAAP Exclusions.” Amounts stated on a constant currency basis are also deemed to be on a non-GAAP basis. Reconciliations of amounts on a GAAP basis to amounts on a non-GAAP basis are presented later in this release and identify and quantify all excluded items.

CEO Comments:

Commenting on these results, Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, noted, “We are very pleased with the strong performance in the third quarter, which exceeded our expectations despite the multiple natural disasters that negatively impacted our North America businesses. We continue to over-deliver against our 2017 plan, even with the additional marketing investments we have made, driven in large part by the continued momentum across our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger businesses and ongoing operating efficiencies across our diversified business model. In today’s ever-changing global consumer environment, we continue to actively adapt our businesses, invest across our organization and find innovative ways to engage consumers, as our recent brand announcements demonstrate.”

Mr. Chirico continued, “We have raised our full year earnings outlook based on our third quarter outperformance, the improvement in foreign currency and our belief that the strength of our brands will continue to drive revenue and profitability increases throughout the fourth quarter. Our more favorable outlook takes into account a strong start to the holiday season and an additional $20 million increase in our fourth quarter marketing expenditures to capitalize on the continued momentum we are seeing across our businesses.”

Mr. Chirico concluded, “We believe that the incredible brand power behind CALVIN KLEIN and TOMMY HILFIGER will drive continued market share gains and allow us to capitalize on the brands’ significant growth opportunities going forward. We believe that we are well positioned to execute our strategic priorities through the efforts of the talented associates at PVH, enabling us to deliver long-term stockholder value.”

Third Quarter Business Review:

Calvin Klein

Revenue in the Calvin Klein business for the quarter increased 6% to $943 million (increased 4% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period, which includes an approximately $20 million reduction resulting from the November 2016 deconsolidation of the Company’s Calvin Klein business in Mexico (the “Mexico deconsolidation”). Calvin Klein International revenue increased 20% to $467 million (increased 16% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period, driven by continued outstanding performance in the European wholesale business and strong international retail results. The growth in retail was attributable to a 9% increase in international comparable store sales and square footage expansion in Company-operated stores. Calvin Klein North America revenue decreased 5% to $476 million (decreased 6% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of the Mexico deconsolidation and a 1% decline in North America comparable store sales.

Earnings before interest and taxes on a GAAP basis for the quarter increased to $142 million from $69 million in the prior year period, primarily attributable to a noncash loss of $77 million recorded in the third quarter of the prior year in advance of the Mexico deconsolidation. Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis discussed below excludes this loss.

Earnings before interest and taxes on a GAAP basis for the quarter of $142 million (there were no non-GAAP exclusions in the current year period) decreased compared to $146 million on a non-GAAP basis in the prior year period. The earnings decrease was principally attributable to an approximately $15 million planned increase over the prior year period in marketing expenditures, which more than offset the revenue and gross profit increases in the business.

Tommy Hilfiger

Revenue in the Tommy Hilfiger business for the quarter increased 10% to $1.0 billion (increased 7% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period. Tommy Hilfiger International revenue increased 16% to $609 million (increased 11% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period, driven by outstanding performance across Europe and continued strength in Asia. Tommy Hilfiger International comparable store sales increased 7%. Tommy Hilfiger North America revenue increased 2% to $410 million (increased 1% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period. The increase was principally attributable to a 6% increase in comparable store sales, partially offset by a reduction of approximately $20 million resulting from the discontinuation of the Company’s directly operated womenswear wholesale business in the U.S. and Canada during the fourth quarter of 2016 in connection with the licensing of this business to G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. (the “G-III license”).

Earnings before interest and taxes on a GAAP basis for the quarter increased to $147 million from $116 million in the prior year period. Included in earnings for the quarter were costs of (i) $6 million incurred in connection with the April 2016 acquisition of the 55% interest in the Company’s former Tommy Hilfiger joint venture in China (“TH China”) that it did not already own (the “TH China acquisition”) and (ii) $5 million incurred in connection with the relocation of the Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, including noncash depreciation expense. Included in earnings for the prior year period were costs of (i) $17 million incurred in connection with the TH China acquisition and (ii) $2 million incurred in connection with the G-III license, mostly offset by a gain of $18 million recorded in connection with a payment made to the Company to exit a flagship store in Europe. Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis discussed below excludes these amounts.

Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis for the quarter increased to $158 million from $117 million in the prior year period. The earnings increase was principally due to the strong Tommy Hilfiger International revenue increase noted above, as well as overall gross margin improvements, particularly in North America.

Heritage Brands

Revenue in the Heritage Brands business for the quarter decreased 7% to $396 million compared to the prior year period, principally attributable to a planned shift in the timing of wholesale shipments from the third quarter into the second quarter as compared to the prior year periods. Comparable store sales increased 2%.

Earnings before interest and taxes for the quarter decreased to $30 million from $44 million in the prior year period driven by the revenue decrease noted above and a deleveraging of expenses.

Third Quarter Consolidated Results:

Earnings per share on a GAAP basis was $3.05 for the third quarter of 2017 compared to $1.56 in the prior year period. The prior year period included the pre-tax noncash loss of $77 million recorded in connection with the Mexico deconsolidation. In addition, the current and prior year periods include the items described below for the applicable quarter in the discussion of earnings before interest and taxes on a GAAP basis.

Earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis was $3.02 for the third quarter of 2017 compared to $2.60 in the prior year period. Earnings per share on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2017 included a $0.03 negative impact related to foreign currency exchange rates.

Third quarter revenue increased 5% to $2.4 billion (increased 3% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period.

Earnings before interest and taxes on a GAAP basis for the quarter increased to $281 million from $198 million in the prior year period. Included in earnings for the quarter were $14 million of costs consisting of (i) $6 million incurred in connection with the TH China acquisition, (ii) $5 million incurred in connection with the relocation of the Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, including noncash depreciation expense, and (iii) $3 million incurred in connection with the consolidation of the Company’s warehouse and distribution network in North America. Included in earnings for the prior year period were $78 million of net costs consisting of (i) the noncash loss of $77 million recorded in connection with the Mexico deconsolidation, (ii) $17 million incurred in connection with the TH China acquisition, (iii) $2 million incurred in connection with the G-III license and (iv) the gain of $18 million recorded in connection with a payment made to the Company to exit a TOMMY HILFIGER flagship store in Europe. Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis discussed below excludes these amounts.

Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis for the quarter was $295 million compared to $276 million in the prior year period. The improvement in earnings was due to an increase in earnings in the Tommy Hilfiger business. Partially offsetting this increase were (i) an earnings decrease in the Heritage Brands business due to a planned shift in the timing of wholesale shipments, (ii) an earnings decrease in the Calvin Klein business due to a planned increase in marketing expenditures and (iii) a $5 million planned increase in corporate expenses.

Net interest expense increased to $31 million from $29 million in the prior year period, primarily attributable to an increase in short-term borrowings. The effective tax rate on a GAAP basis was 4.4% as compared to 25.3% in the prior year period, as the current year period included a higher overall benefit from discrete tax items as compared to the prior year period. The effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis was 10.2% as compared to 14.9% in the prior year period, which includes a favorable impact from the mix of earnings between tax jurisdictions in the current year period as compared to the prior year period.

Nine Months Consolidated Results:

Earnings per share on a GAAP basis was $5.45 for the first nine months of 2017 compared to $5.52 in the prior year period. The current and prior year periods include items as described under the heading “Non-GAAP Exclusions” later in this release. Earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis discussed below excludes these items.

Earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis was $6.36 for the first nine months of 2017 compared to $5.57 in the prior year period. Earnings per share on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the first nine months of 2017 included a $0.19 negative impact related to foreign currency exchange rates.

Revenue for the first nine months of 2017 increased 5% to $6.4 billion compared to the prior year period. There was an immaterial impact of foreign currency exchange rates on the Company’s revenue for the first nine months of 2017 compared to the prior year period on a consolidated basis and for each of the Company’s businesses. The revenue increase was due to:

  • A 6% increase in the Calvin Klein business compared to the prior year period, driven by continued strength in Europe and China, partially offset by a reduction of approximately $50 million resulting from the Mexico deconsolidation. International comparable store sales increased 6%. North America comparable store sales decreased 3%.
  • A 7% increase in the Tommy Hilfiger business compared to the prior year period, driven principally by outstanding performance in Europe and the inclusion of a full first quarter of revenue from the China business as a result of the TH China acquisition in April 2016. Tommy Hilfiger International comparable store sales increased 8%. Partially offsetting these increases was a decrease in North America revenue attributable to a reduction of approximately $60 million resulting from the G-III license. North America comparable store sales increased 1%.

Revenue in the Heritage Brands business was relatively flat compared to the prior year period. Comparable store sales in the business increased 1%.

Earnings before interest and taxes on a GAAP basis for the first nine months of 2017 decreased to $574 million from $635 million in the prior year period. These results include the amounts described under the heading “Non-GAAP Exclusions” later in this release. Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis discussed below excludes those amounts.

Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis for the first nine months of 2017 was $687 million, inclusive of a $20 million negative impact due to foreign currency exchange rates, compared to $647 million in the prior year period. The improvement in earnings was primarily due to an increase in earnings in the Tommy Hilfiger and Heritage Brands businesses, partially offset by a decrease in earnings in the Calvin Klein business due to the planned increase in marketing expenditures and investments associated with the CALVIN KLEIN creative team leadership changes, as well as a $15 million planned increase in corporate expenses.

Net interest expense for the first nine months of 2017 increased to $89 million from $86 million in the prior year period. The effective tax rate on a GAAP basis for the first nine months of 2017 was 11.7% as compared to 18.4% in the prior year period, as the current year period included a higher overall benefit from discrete tax items as compared to the prior year period. The effective tax rate on a non-GAAP basis for the first nine months of 2017 was 16.4% as compared to 19.3% in the prior year period, which includes a favorable impact from the mix of earnings between tax jurisdictions in the current period as compared to the prior year period.

Stock Repurchase Program:

During the first nine months of 2017, the Company repurchased 1.8 million shares of its common stock for $192 million (6.4 million shares for $634 million since inception) under the $1.250 billion stock repurchase program authorized by the Board of Directors through June 3, 2020. Stock repurchases under the program may be made from time to time over the period through open market purchases, accelerated share repurchase programs, privately negotiated transactions or other methods, as the Company deems appropriate. Purchases are made based on a variety of factors, such as price, corporate requirements and overall market conditions, applicable legal requirements and limitations, restrictions under the Company’s debt arrangements, trading restrictions under the Company’s insider trading policy and other relevant factors. The program may be modified by the Board, including to increase or decrease the repurchase limitation or extend, suspend, or terminate the program, at any time, without prior notice.

2017 Guidance:

The Company expects its full year 2017 earnings per share results will be negatively impacted compared to 2016 by $0.17 per share attributable to foreign currency exchange rates due to fluctuations of the U.S. dollar against other currencies in which the Company transacts significant levels of business.

Please see the section entitled “Full Year and Quarterly Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Amounts” at the end of this release for further detail and reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP amounts discussed in this section.

Full Year Guidance

The Company currently projects that 2017 earnings per share on a GAAP basis will be in a range of $6.80 to $6.82 compared to $6.79 in 2016. The Company currently projects that 2017 earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis will be in a range of $7.78 to $7.80 compared to $6.80 in 2016. Both projections include the expected negative impact of $0.17 per share related to foreign currency exchange rates. These projections also reflect an additional $20 million of Calvin Klein marketing expenditures in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to previous guidance.

Revenue in 2017 is projected to increase approximately 7% (increase approximately 6% on a constant currency basis) as compared to 2016. Negatively impacting revenue in 2017 as compared to 2016 is a reduction of approximately $150 million due to the effects of the Mexico deconsolidation and the G-III license. Revenue for the Calvin Klein business is projected to increase approximately 9% (increase approximately 7% on a constant currency basis), which includes the negative impact of the Mexico deconsolidation. Revenue for the Tommy Hilfiger business is projected to increase approximately 8% (increase approximately 7% on a constant currency basis), which includes the negative impact of the G-III license. Revenue for the Heritage Brands business is projected to be flat compared to the prior year.

Net interest expense in 2017 is projected to increase to approximately $120 million from $115 million in 2016, primarily due to the impact of the issuance of €350 million of senior notes in June 2016 and an increase in short-term borrowings as compared to the prior year period, primarily in the second half of 2017, partially offset by the impact of long-term debt repayments made during 2016 and those expected to be made in 2017. The Company estimates that the 2017 effective tax rate will be in a range of 13.0% to 13.5% on a GAAP basis and in a range of 16.5% to 17.0% on a non-GAAP basis.

The Company’s estimate of 2017 earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis excludes approximately $120 million of pre-tax costs expected to be incurred in connection with (i) the agreements entered into during the first quarter of 2017 for a transaction to restructure the Company’s supply chain relationship with Li & Fung Trading Limited (“Li & Fung”), under which the Company has terminated its non-exclusive buying agency agreement with Li & Fung during the third quarter of 2017 (the “Li & Fung termination”); (ii) the TH China acquisition, primarily consisting of noncash amortization of short-lived assets; (iii) the relocation of the Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, including noncash depreciation expense; (iv) the consolidation of the Company’s warehouse and distribution network in North America; and (v) the noncash settlement of certain of the Company’s benefit obligations related to its retirement plans as a result of an annuity purchased for certain participants, under which such obligations were transferred to an insurer. Also excluded from the Company’s estimate of 2017 earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis are the estimated tax effects of the above pre-tax items and discrete tax benefits of $13 million recorded related to the resolution of uncertain tax positions.

Fourth Quarter Guidance

The Company expects its fourth quarter 2017 earnings per share results will be positively impacted compared to the fourth quarter of 2016 by approximately $0.02 per share related to foreign currency exchange rates due to fluctuations of the U.S. dollar against other currencies in which the Company transacts significant levels of business.

Fourth quarter 2017 earnings per share on a GAAP basis is projected to be in a range of $1.35 to $1.37 compared to $1.26 in the prior year period. The Company projects that fourth quarter 2017 earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis will be in a range of $1.42 to $1.44 compared to $1.23 in the prior year period.

Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 is projected to increase approximately 11% (increase approximately 8% on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year period. Positively impacting revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to the prior year period is the inclusion of a 53rd week in 2017. Negatively impacting revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 as compared to the prior year period is a reduction in revenue due to the effects of the Mexico deconsolidation, the G-III license, and a shift in the selling period in advance of the Chinese New Year, which occurs in the first quarter of 2018. Revenue for the Calvin Klein business in the fourth quarter is projected to increase approximately 16% (increase approximately 12% on a constant currency basis). Revenue for the Tommy Hilfiger business in the fourth quarter is projected to increase approximately 12% (increase approximately 7% on a constant currency basis). Revenue for the Heritage Brands business in the fourth quarter is projected to decrease approximately 1% compared to the prior year.

Net interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2017 is projected to increase to approximately $30 million from $29 million in the prior year period, primarily due to an increase in short-term borrowings. The Company estimates that the fourth quarter 2017 effective tax rate will be in a range of 16.5% to 19.5% on a GAAP basis and in a range of 17.0% to 20.0% on a non-GAAP basis.

The Company’s estimate of fourth quarter 2017 earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis excludes approximately $7 million of pre-tax costs expected to be incurred in connection with the TH China acquisition, primarily consisting of noncash amortization of short-lived assets, and the associated estimated tax effect of this item.

  • Pre-tax costs of $54 million incurred in the first quarter of 2017 in connection with the Li & Fung termination.
  • Pre-tax costs of approximately $27 million expected to be incurred in 2017 in connection with the TH China acquisition, primarily consisting of noncash amortization of short-lived assets, of which $7 million was incurred in the first quarter, $7 million was incurred in the second quarter, $6 million was incurred in the third quarter and approximately $7 million is expected to be incurred in the fourth quarter.

  • Pre-tax costs of $10 million incurred in 2017 in connection with the consolidation of the Company’s warehouse and distribution network in North America, of which $2 million was incurred in the first quarter, $6 million was incurred in the second quarter and $3 million was incurred in the third quarter.
  • Pre-tax costs of $9 million incurred in the first quarter of 2017 in connection with the noncash settlement of certain of the Company’s benefit obligations related to its retirement plans as a result of an annuity purchased for certain participants, under which such obligations were transferred to an insurer.
  • Discrete tax benefits of $13 million recorded in the third quarter of 2017 primarily related to the resolution of uncertain tax positions.
  • Pre-tax noncash gain of $153 million recorded in the first quarter of 2016 to write-up the Company’s equity investment in TH China to fair value in connection with the TH China acquisition, which was completed in the first quarter of 2016. Partially offsetting the pre-tax gain were transaction-related pre-tax costs of $83 million incurred in 2016, primarily consisting of noncash valuation adjustments and amortization of short-lived assets. Of these pre-tax costs, $30 million was incurred in the first quarter, $20 million was incurred in the second quarter, $17 million was incurred in the third quarter and $15 million was incurred in the fourth quarter.
  • Pre-tax gain of $39 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2016 related to the recognized actuarial gain on retirement plans.

  • Pre-tax noncash loss of $84 million recorded in 2016 in connection with the formation of the joint venture in Mexico, of which $77 million was recorded in the third quarter and $7 million was recorded upon completion of the Mexico deconsolidation in the fourth quarter.
  • Pre-tax costs of $16 million incurred in the second quarter of 2016 in connection with the amendment of the Company’s credit facility.
  • Pre-tax costs of $11 million incurred in the fourth quarter of 2016 in connection with the early termination of the current license agreement for the Tommy Hilfiger men’s tailored clothing business in North America in order to consolidate under a different licensee the men’s tailored businesses for all Company brands in North America beginning January 1, 2018.
  • Pre-tax costs of $10 million incurred in 2016 in connection with the integration of Warnaco and the related restructuring, of which $7 million was incurred in the first quarter and $2 million was incurred in the second quarter.
  • Pre-tax costs of $6 million incurred in the first quarter of 2016 in connection with the restructuring associated with the new global creative strategy for CALVIN KLEIN.
  • Pre-tax costs of $4 million incurred in 2016 in connection with the G-III license, of which $1 million was incurred in each of the first and second quarters and $2 million was incurred in the third quarter.
  • Pre-tax costs of $3 million incurred in the first quarter of 2016 related to the discontinuation of several licensed product lines in the Heritage Brands dress furnishings business.
  • Discrete tax benefits of $15 million recorded in 2016 related to the resolution of uncertain tax positions, of which $6 million was recorded in the first quarter, $8 million was recorded in the third quarter and $1 million was recorded in the fourth quarter.
  • Estimated tax effects associated with the above pre-tax items, which are based on the Company’s assessment of deductibility. In making this assessment, the Company evaluated each item that it had identified above as a non-GAAP exclusion to determine if such item is taxable or tax deductible, and if so, in what jurisdiction the tax expense or tax deduction would occur. All items above were identified as either primarily taxable or tax deductible, with the tax effect taken at the statutory income tax rate of the local jurisdiction, or as non-taxable or non-deductible, in which case the Company assumed no tax effect.

As a supplement to the Company’s GAAP results, the Company presents constant currency revenue information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company presents results in this manner because it is a global company that transacts business in multiple currencies but reports financial information in U.S. dollars. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by the Company in U.S. dollars with respect to its foreign revenues. Exchange rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported revenues. The Company believes presenting constant currency revenue information provides useful information to investors, as it provides information to assess how its businesses performed excluding the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and assists investors in evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s operations and underlying business trends in a manner that is consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance.

The Company calculates constant currency revenue information by translating its foreign revenues for the current year period into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable prior year period (rather than at the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period).

Constant currency performance should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or as superior to, the Company’s operating performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency revenue information presented may not be comparable to similarly described measures reported by other companies.

Please see Tables 1 through 9 and the sections entitled “Reconciliations of 2017 Constant Currency Revenue” and “Full Year and Quarterly Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Amounts” later in this release for reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP amounts.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company believes it is useful to investors to present its results for the periods ended October 29, 2017 and October 30, 2016 excluding (i) the costs incurred in the first, second and third quarters of 2017 and 2016 in connection with the acquisition of the 55% interest in TH Asia, Ltd. (“TH China”), its former joint venture for TOMMY HILFIGER in China, that it did not already own (the “TH China acquisition”), primarily consisting of noncash valuation adjustments and amortization of short-lived assets; (ii) the costs incurred in the first, second and third quarters of 2017 in connection with the relocation of the Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, including noncash depreciation expense; (iii) the costs incurred in the first, second and third quarters of 2017 in connection with the consolidation of its warehouse and distribution network in North America; (iv) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2017 in connection with the agreements entered into during the quarter for a transaction to restructure its supply chain relationship with Li & Fung Trading Limited (“Li & Fung”), under which the Company terminated its non-exclusive buying agency agreement with Li & Fung during the third quarter of 2017 (the “Li & Fung termination”); (v) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2017 in connection with the noncash settlement of certain of its benefit obligations related to its retirement plans as a result of an annuity purchased for certain participants, under which such obligations were transferred to an insurer; (vi) the costs incurred in the first and second quarters of 2016 in connection with its integration of The Warnaco Group, Inc. (“Warnaco”) and the related restructuring; (vii) the costs incurred in the first, second and third quarters of 2016 in connection with the licensing to G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. of the Tommy Hilfiger womenswear wholesale business in the U.S. and Canada (the “G-III license”), which resulted in the discontinuation of the Company’s directly operated Tommy Hilfiger North America womenswear wholesale business during the fourth quarter of 2016; (viii) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2016 in connection with the restructuring associated with the new global creative strategy for CALVIN KLEIN; (ix) the costs incurred in the first quarter of 2016 in connection with the discontinuation of several licensed product lines in its Heritage Brands dress furnishings business; (x) the noncash gain recorded in the first quarter of 2016 to write-up its equity investment in TH China to fair value in connection with the TH China acquisition; (xi) the one-time costs recorded in the first quarter of 2016 on its equity investment in TH China prior to the TH China acquisition closing; (xii) the costs incurred in the second quarter of 2016 in connection with the amendment of its credit facility; (xiii) the noncash loss recorded in the third quarter of 2016 in connection with the deconsolidation of its subsidiary that principally operated and managed its Calvin Klein business in Mexico (the “Mexico deconsolidation”) in connection with the formation of a joint venture in Mexico in November 2016 to operate that and other businesses; (xiv) the gain recorded in the third quarter of 2016 in connection with a payment made to the Company to exit a TOMMY HILFIGER flagship store in Europe; (xv) the tax effects associated with the foregoing pre-tax items; and (xvi) the tax benefits recorded in the third quarter of 2017 and the first and third quarters of 2016 associated with discrete items related to the resolution of uncertain tax positions, which are on a non-GAAP basis. The Company excludes such amounts that it deems non-recurring or non-operational and believes that this (i) facilitates comparing current results against past and future results by eliminating amounts that it believes are not comparable between periods, thereby permitting management to evaluate performance and investors to make decisions based on the ongoing operations of the Company and (ii) assists investors in evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s operations and underlying business trends in a manner that is consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance. The Company believes that investors often look at ongoing operations of an enterprise as a measure of assessing performance. The Company uses its results excluding these amounts to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Company’s Board of Directors and others. The Company’s results excluding the items described above are also the basis for certain incentive compensation calculations. The non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, the Company’s operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The following table presents the non-GAAP measures that are discussed in this release. Please see Tables 1 through 9 for reconciliations of the GAAP amounts to amounts on a non-GAAP basis.

The estimated tax effects associated with the Company’s exclusions on a non-GAAP basis are based on the Company’s assessment of deductibility. In making this assessment, the Company evaluated each pre-tax item that it had identified above as a non-GAAP exclusion to determine if such item is taxable or tax deductible and, if so, in what jurisdiction the tax expense or tax deduction would occur. All of the pre-tax items identified as non-GAAP exclusions were identified as either primarily taxable or tax deductible, with the tax effect taken at the statutory income tax rate of the local jurisdiction, or as non-taxable or non-deductible, in which case the Company assumed no tax effect.

PVH CORP.
Reconciliations of 2017 Constant Currency Revenue
(In millions)

As a supplement to the Company’s reported operating results, the Company presents constant currency revenue information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company presents results in this manner because it is a global company that transacts business in multiple currencies but reports financial information in U.S. dollars. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by the Company in U.S. dollars with respect to its foreign revenues. Exchange rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported revenues. The Company believes presenting constant currency revenue information provides useful information to investors, as it provides information to assess how its businesses performed excluding the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and assists investors in evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s operations and underlying business trends in a manner that is consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance.

The Company calculates constant currency revenue information by translating its foreign revenues for the current year period into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable prior year period (rather than at the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period).

Constant currency performance should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or as superior to, the Company’s operating performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency revenue information presented may not be comparable to similarly described measures reported by other companies.

PVH CORP.
Full Year and Quarterly Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Amounts

The Company is presenting its 2017 estimated results excluding (a) the costs incurred in the first quarter in connection with the Li & Fung termination; (b) the costs incurred in the first, second and third quarters and expected to be incurred in the fourth quarter in connection with the TH China acquisition, primarily consisting of noncash amortization of short-lived assets; (c) the costs incurred in the first, second and third quarters in connection with the relocation of the Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, including noncash depreciation expense; (d) the costs incurred in the first, second and third quarters in connection with the consolidation of the Company’s warehouse and distribution network in North America; (e) the costs incurred in the first quarter in connection with the noncash settlement of certain of the Company’s benefit obligations related to its retirement plans as a result of an annuity purchased for certain participants, under which such obligations were transferred to an insurer; (f) the estimated tax effects associated with the foregoing pre-tax costs; and (g) the tax benefits recorded in the third quarter associated with discrete items related to the resolution of uncertain tax positions. The 2017 estimated results are presented on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. The Company believes presenting these results on a non-GAAP basis provides useful additional information to investors. The Company excludes such amounts that it deems non-recurring or non-operational and believes that this (i) facilitates comparing current results against past and future results by eliminating amounts that it believes are not comparable between periods, thereby permitting management to evaluate performance and investors to make decisions based on the ongoing operations of the Company and (ii) assists investors in evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s operations and underlying business trends in a manner that is consistent with management’s evaluation of business performance. The Company has provided the reconciliations set forth below to present its estimates on a GAAP basis and excluding these amounts. The Company uses its results excluding these amounts to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Company’s Board of Directors and others. The Company’s results excluding the items described above are also the basis for certain incentive compensation calculations. The non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or as superior to, the Company’s operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The estimated tax effects associated with the above pre-tax items are based on the Company’s assessment of deductibility. In making this assessment, the Company evaluated each item that it had identified above as a non-GAAP exclusion to determine if such item is taxable or tax deductible, and if so, in what jurisdiction the tax expense or tax deduction would occur. All items above were identified as either primarily taxable or tax deductible, with the tax effect taken at the statutory income tax rate of the local jurisdiction, or as non-taxable or non-deductible, in which case the Company assumed no tax effect.
