DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended June 29, 2019. All per share amounts are presented on a diluted basis. This release refers to “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts, terms that are described under the heading “Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts are the same. This release also refers to “continuing” and “discontinued” operations amounts, which are concepts described under the heading “Discontinued Operations - Kontoor Brands Business.” Unless otherwise noted, results presented are based on continuing operations. This release also refers to “adjusted” amounts, terms that are described under the heading “Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Icebreaker®, Altra® and Jeans Spin-Off Transaction and Deal Related Expenses, Costs Related to Office Relocations and Specified Strategic Business Decisions.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “adjusted” amounts are the same.

“Our first quarter represents a new chapter for VF following the spin-off of Kontoor Brands and our relocation to Denver, Colorado," said Steve Rendle, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our first quarter results demonstrate the power of VF's evolved portfolio and our progress along our journey to become a purpose-led, performance-driven, value-creating enterprise anchored in our commitment to be more consumer-minded and retail-centric in everything we do. As a result of our strong results and increased confidence in the full year, we are raising our fiscal 2020 outlook, including an additional $20 million of investments aimed at accelerating growth and value creation in fiscal year 2020 and beyond."

Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency

This release refers to “reported” amounts in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), which include translation and transactional impacts from foreign currency exchange rates. This release also refers to “constant dollar” amounts, which exclude the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. The “constant dollar” amounts also exclude the impact of foreign currency-denominated transactions in countries with highly inflationary economies. Reconciliations of GAAP measures to constant currency amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

Discontinued Operations - Kontoor Brands Business

On May 22, 2019, VF completed the spin-off of its Jeans business, which included the Wrangler®, Lee® and Rock & Republic® brands, as well as the VF OutletTM business, into an independent, publicly traded company under the name Kontoor Brands, Inc. (“Kontoor Brands”). Accordingly, the company has removed the assets and liabilities of the Jeans business as of the date noted above and included the operating results of this business in discontinued operations for all periods presented.

VF's after-tax net loss from discontinued operations was $48.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020, which reflects the operating results of the Jeans business, including $59.5 million of separation costs related to the spin-off.

Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Icebreaker®, Altra® and Jeans Spin-Off Transaction and Deal Related Expenses, Costs Related to Office Relocations and Specified Strategic Business Decisions

This release refers to adjusted amounts that exclude transaction and deal related expenses associated with the acquisitions and integration of the Icebreaker® and Altra® brands. The release also refers to transaction expenses associated with the completed spin-off of the Jeans business. Total transaction and deal related expenses were approximately $13 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

This release also refers to adjusted amounts that exclude costs primarily associated with the previously announced relocation of VF’s global headquarters and certain brands to Denver, Colorado. The release also refers to costs related to strategic business decisions in South America and the operating results of jeanswear wind-down activities in South America following the spin-off of Kontoor Brands. Total costs were approximately $17 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Combined, the above net charges negatively impacted earnings per share by $0.06 during the first quarter of fiscal 2020. All adjusted amounts referenced herein exclude the effects of these amounts.

Reconciliations of measures calculated in accordance with GAAP to adjusted amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

Adjusted Full Year Fiscal 2020 Outlook

VF’s outlook for full year fiscal 2020 is on an adjusted continuing operations basis unless otherwise noted, and has been updated to include the following:

  • Revenue is now expected to approximate $11.8 billion, reflecting an increase of approximately 6 percent (8 percent on a constant dollar basis excluding the impact of acquisitions and divestitures). This compares to the previous expectation of revenue between $11.7 billion and $11.8 billion. By segment, revenue for Outdoor is now expected to increase approximately 5 percent (6 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding the impact of acquisitions). This compares to the previous expectation of an increase in revenue of approximately 4 percent to 5 percent (5 percent to 6 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding the impact of acquisitions); revenue for Active is now expected to increase approximately 7 percent to 8 percent (10 percent to 11 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding the impact of divestitures). This compares to the previous expectation of an increase in revenue of approximately 6 percent to 7 percent (9 percent to 10 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding the impact of divestitures); and, revenue for Work is still expected to increase approximately 3 percent to 5 percent (4 percent to 6 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding the impact of divestitures).
  • International revenue is still expected to increase approximately 4 percent to 6 percent, or approximately 7 percent to 9 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding the impact of acquisitions and divestitures.
  • Direct-to-consumer revenue is now expected to increase approximately 10 percent to 12 percent (11 percent to 13 percent on a constant dollar basis), including 25 percent growth in digital. This compares to the previous expectation of an increase in revenue of approximately 9 percent to 11 percent (10 percent to 12 percent on a constant dollar basis).
  • Adjusted gross margin is now expected to be 54.1 percent, which represents an estimated increase of 80 basis points. This compares to the previous expectation of about 54.0 percent.
  • Adjusted operating margin is now expected to be 13.8 percent, which represents an estimated increase of approximately 90 basis points. This compares to the previous expectation of an adjusted operating margin of 13.7 percent.
  • Adjusted earnings per share is now expected to be in the range of $3.32 to $3.37, including an additional $20 million, or $0.04 per share, of incremental investment, reflecting growth of approximately 16 percent to 18 percent (18 percent to 20 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding acquisitions and divestitures). This compares to the previous expectation of $3.30 to $3.35, reflecting growth of 15 percent to 17 percent (17 percent to 19 percent on a constant dollar basis, excluding the impact of acquisitions and divestitures).
  • Adjusted cash flow from operations is still expected to be at least $1.3 billion.

Forward-looking Statements

Certain statements included in this release and attachments are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements are made based on our expectations and beliefs concerning future events impacting VF and therefore involve several risks and uncertainties. You can identify these statements by the fact that they use words such as “will,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “should,” and “may” and other words and terms of similar meaning or use of future dates. We caution that forward-looking statements are not guarantees and that actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Potential risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results of operations or financial condition of VF to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements in this release include, but are not limited to: risks associated with the spin-off of our Jeanswear business completed on May 22, 2019, including the risk that VF will not realize all of the expected benefits of the spin-off; and the risk that the spin-off will not be tax-free for U.S. federal income tax purposes; the risk that there will be a loss of synergies from separating the businesses that could negatively impact the balance sheet, profit margins or earnings of VF. There are also risks associated with the relocation of our global headquarters and a number of brands to the metro Denver area, including the risk of significant disruption to our operations, the temporary diversion of management resources and loss of key employees who have substantial experience and expertise in our business, the risk that we may encounter difficulties retaining employees who elect to transfer and attracting new talent in the Denver area to replace our employees who are unwilling to relocate, the risk that the relocation may involve significant additional costs to us and that the expected benefits of the move may not be fully realized. Other risks include foreign currency fluctuations; the level of consumer demand for apparel, footwear and accessories; disruption to VF’s distribution system; the financial strength of VF's customers; fluctuations in the price, availability and quality of raw materials and contracted products; disruption and volatility in the global capital and credit markets; VF's response to changing fashion trends, evolving consumer preferences and changing patterns of consumer behavior, intense competition from online retailers, manufacturing and product innovation; increasing pressure on margins; VF's ability to implement its business strategy; VF's ability to grow its international and direct-to-consumer businesses; VF’s and its vendors’ ability to maintain the strength and security of information technology systems; the risk that VF's facilities and systems and those of our third-party service providers may be vulnerable to and unable to anticipate or detect data security breaches and data or financial loss; VF's ability to properly collect, use, manage and secure consumer and employee data; stability of VF's manufacturing facilities and foreign suppliers; continued use by VF's suppliers of ethical business practices; VF’s ability to accurately forecast demand for products; continuity of members of VF’s management; VF's ability to protect trademarks and other intellectual property rights; possible goodwill and other asset impairment; maintenance by VF’s licensees and distributors of the value of VF’s brands; VF's ability to execute and integrate acquisitions; changes in tax laws and liabilities; legal, regulatory, political and economic risks; the risk of economic uncertainty associated with the pending exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union ("Brexit") or any other similar referendums that may be held; and adverse or unexpected weather conditions. More information on potential factors that could affect VF's financial results is included from time to time in VF's public reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including VF's Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

Constant Currency Financial Information

 

VF is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by VF from translating its foreign revenues and expenses into U.S. dollars. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported operating results. As a supplement to our reported operating results, we present constant currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. The constant currency financial information also excludes the impact of foreign currency-denominated transactions in countries with highly inflationary economies. We use constant currency information to provide a framework to assess how our business performed excluding the effects of changes in the rates used to calculate foreign currency translation, and measuring foreign currency transactions in highly inflationary economies. Management believes this information is useful to investors to facilitate comparison of operating results and better identify trends in our businesses.

 

To calculate foreign currency translation on a constant currency basis, operating results for the current year period for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable period of the prior year (rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period). Similarly, foreign currency transactions in highly inflationary economies, on a constant currency basis, are calculated using exchange rates from the comparable period of the prior year.

 

These constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, our operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(a) Transaction and deal related costs include acquisition and integration costs related to the acquisitions of the Icebreaker® and Altra® brands, which totaled $3.3 million for the three months ended June 2019. The costs also include separation and related expenses associated with the spin-off of the Jeans business of $9.5 million, that did not meet the criteria for discontinued operations, for the three months ended June 2019. The transaction and deal related costs resulted in a net tax benefit of $3.1 million in the three months ended June 2019.

 

(b) Relocation and specified strategic business decisions for the three months ended June 2019 include costs associated with the relocation of VF’s global headquarters and certain brands to Denver, Colorado, which totaled $15.0 million for the three months ended June 2019. This activity includes a gain of approximately $11 million on the sale of certain office real estate and related assets in connection with the relocation. The activity also reflects costs related to specified strategic business decisions to cease operations in Argentina and planned business model changes in certain other countries in South America as well as the operating results of jeanswear wind down activities in South America post the separation of Kontoor Brands, which totaled $2.0 million for the three months ended June 2019. The relocation and specified strategic business decisions costs resulted in a net tax benefit of $4.1 million for the three months ended June 2019.

 

(c) The contribution from acquisition represents the operating results of Altra® for the two months ended May 2019, which reflects the one-year anniversary of the acquisition. The results exclude transaction and deal related costs.

 

(d) Amounts shown in the table have been calculated using unrounded numbers. The diluted earnings per share impacts were calculated using 401,914,000 weighted average common shares for the three months ended June 2019.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The financial information above has been presented on a GAAP basis, on an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of transaction and deal related costs and relocation and specified strategic business decisions, and on an adjusted organic basis, which excludes the operating results of Altra® (for the two months ended May 2019). Contribution from acquisition also excludes transaction and deal related costs. These adjusted presentations are non-GAAP measures. Management believes these measures provide investors with useful supplemental information regarding VF's underlying business trends and the performance of VF's ongoing operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations.

 

Management uses the above financial measures internally in its budgeting and review process and, in some cases, as a factor in determining compensation. While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, VF's operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

(a) Transaction and deal related costs for the three months ended June 2018 include acquisition and integration costs related to the acquisitions of Williamson-Dickie and the Icebreaker® and Altra® brands. The transaction and deal related costs resulted in a net tax benefit of $3.5 million in the three months ended June 2018.

 

(b) On December 22, 2017, the U.S. government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Act"). Measurement period adjustments related to the provisional net charge were recorded during the three months ended June 2018, resulting in a tax benefit of $2.9 million.

 

(c) The contribution from divestitures represents the operating results of the Reef® brand and Van Moer business for the three months ending June 2018. The contribution from divestitures resulted in tax expense of $1.9 million for the three months ended June 2018.

 

(d) Amounts shown in the table have been calculated using unrounded numbers. The diluted earnings per share impact was calculated using 399,548,000 weighted average common shares for the three months ended June 2018.
