Genesco Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Results

12/01/17

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesco Inc. (NYSE: GCO) today reported a loss from continuing operations for the third quarter ended October 28, 2017, of $164.8 million, or ($8.55) per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $25.9 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, for the third quarter ended October 29, 2016.  Fiscal 2018 third quarter results reflect a goodwill impairment charge of $182.2 million, or $8.13 per diluted share after-tax, related primarily to the sustained decline in the Company's market value to a level below book value, losses of $0.9 million, or $0.03 per diluted share after-tax due to Hurricane Maria, fixed asset impairment charges of $0.5 million, or $0.02 per diluted share after-tax, $0.01 per diluted share for the impact of additional dilutive shares, and a $26.6 million tax impact, or $1.38 per diluted share, related primarily to the goodwill impairment.  Fiscal 2017 third quarter results reflected  pretax fixed asset impairment charges of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share after tax, offset by $0.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, from a lower than normal tax rate due to the release of tax reserves and other items.

Adjusted for the items described above in both periods, earnings from continuing operations were $19.7 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, for the third quarter of Fiscal 2018, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $25.5 million, or $1.28 per diluted share, for the third quarter of Fiscal 2017.  For consistency with Fiscal 2018's previously announced earnings expectations and with previously reported adjusted results for the prior year period, the Company believes that the disclosure of the results from continuing operations adjusted for these items will be useful to investors. A reconciliation of earnings and earnings per share from continuing operations in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles with the adjusted earnings and earnings per share numbers presented in this paragraph is set forth on Schedule B to this press release.

Net sales for the third quarter of Fiscal 2018 increased 1% to $717 million from $711 million in the third quarter of Fiscal 2017.  Consolidated third quarter 2018 comparable sales, including same store sales and comparable e-commerce and catalog sales, increased 1%, with a 4% increase in the Journeys Group, a 4% increase in the Schuh Group, a 6% decrease in the Lids Sports Group, and a 1% decrease in the Johnston & Murphy Group. Comparable sales for the Company included a 2% decrease in same store sales and a 24% increase in e-commerce sales.

Robert J. Dennis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Genesco, said, "Our third quarter results are the tale of two businesses.  Journeys built on its momentum following its emergence from the recent fashion shift in its markets and posted a solid comp gain.  Meanwhile Lids, after a tough second quarter, faced additional challenges that pressured its performance.  The dramatic shift in consumer shopping behavior away from stores to digital continued across all of our divisions, although we did see bright spots in both store traffic and store purchases during Back-to-School in more than one of our concepts. The combination of these factors with gross margin headwinds in many of our businesses, the deleverage resulting from negative store comps and higher expenses from our omnichannel initiatives led to earnings below last year's level but slightly ahead of our internal forecasts.

"Top line results for our footwear businesses for the fourth quarter to date, including sales and e-commerce bookings over Black Friday Weekend and Cyber Monday, accelerated over the third quarter, and we are now more optimistic about Journeys' fourth quarter prospects.  Strong e-commerce sales growth continues in our retail businesses, while store traffic remains challenging.  While we expected tough comparisons lapping the anniversary of the Cubs' World Series victory, unfortunately, due to other challenges, current trends at Lids are running below our expectations.  These challenges include, among others, dampened demand for NFL licensed merchandise resulting from the well-publicized challenges facing the League and disruption in our Canadian business from the NHL vendor transition. Therefore, we have adopted a more conservative outlook for Lids. We now expect adjusted diluted earnings per share to range from $3.05 to $3.35 compared to our previous guidance range of $3.35 to $3.65 given these challenges."  This guidance assumes comparable sales in the range of -1% to 1% for the full year.  It does not include the non-cash goodwill impairment charge, fixed asset impairments and other charges, estimated in the range of $186.3 million to $187.4 million pretax, or $8.27 to $8.31 per share after tax, for the full fiscal year.  It also does not include certain tax effects related to equity grants pursuant to the newly effective ASU 2016-09, estimated at $0.11 per share after tax. A reconciliation of the adjusted financial measures cited in the guidance to their corresponding measures as reported pursuant to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is included in Schedule B to this press release.

Dennis concluded, "While we are very disappointed with our reduced outlook, in addition to successfully executing our holiday plans, we continue to focus on taking the necessary steps toward meeting the challenges in this changing retail environment and strengthening our strategic positioning for sustained growth. These steps include initiatives aimed at reducing our real estate risk and rent expense, enhancing our in-store experience and driving traffic to our stores, building further our omnichannel and digital capabilities, strengthening the equity of our retail brands, and managing capital spending as we look toward next year, all of which we plan to discuss in more detail on this morning's conference call.  I believe that we are on the right course to deliver enhanced profitability and increased shareholder value over the longer-term."

Goodwill Impairment

In the third quarter of Fiscal 2018, primarily because of the sustained decline of the Company's market value to a level below book value and underperformance relative to projected operating results, particularly in the Lids Sports Group, the Company concluded that it was appropriate to conduct an interim assessment of the recoverability of the carrying value of the goodwill on its balance sheet.  Based upon this assessment, the Company recognized the full impairment of goodwill in the Lids Sports Group and recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $182.2 million pretax, or $8.13 per diluted share after tax.  The impaired goodwill was created in connection with the Company's acquisition of Hat World in 2004 and several subsequent, smaller acquisitions, primarily in the Lids Locker Room licensed sports business.

Actual results could vary materially from the expectations reflected in these statements. A number of factors could cause differences.  These include adjustments to estimates and projections reflected in forward-looking statements, including the level and timing of promotional activity necessary to maintain inventories at appropriate levels;  the timing and amount of non-cash asset impairments related to retail store fixed assets and intangible assets of acquired businesses; the effectiveness of the Company's omnichannel initiatives; costs associated with changes in minimum wage and overtime requirements; the effects of proposed tax reform legislation on the Company's effective tax rate, including the potential for a significant, one-time, non-cash charge to adjust the Company's deferred tax asset; the level of chargebacks from credit card users for fraudulent purchases or other reasons; weakness in the consumer economy and retail industry; effects on local consumer demand or on the national economy related to hurricanes or natural disasters; competition in the Company's markets, including online and including competition from some of the Company's vendors in both the licensed sports and branded footwear markets; fashion trends that affect the sales or product margins of the Company's retail product offerings as well as the lack of new fashion trends that might drive business, and the Company's ability to respond to fashion shifts quickly and effectively; weakness in shopping mall traffic and challenges to the viability of malls where the Company operates stores, including weakness related to planned closings of anchor, and department and other stores and other factors, and the extent and pace of growth of online shopping; risks related to the potential for terrorist events, especially in malls and shopping districts; the imposition of tariffs on imported products; changes in buying patterns by significant wholesale customers; bankruptcies or deterioration in financial condition of significant wholesale customers or the inability of wholesale customers or consumers to obtain credit; the Company's ability to obtain from suppliers products that are in-demand on a timely basis and disruptions in product supply or distribution; unfavorable trends in fuel costs, foreign exchange rates, foreign labor and material costs, and other factors affecting the cost of products; the effects of the British decision to exit the European Union, including potential effects on consumer demand, currency exchange rates, and the supply chain; the Company's ability to continue to complete and integrate acquisitions, expand its business and diversify its product base; changes in the timing of holidays or in the onset of seasonal weather affecting period-to-period sales comparisons; the performance of athletic teams, interest in athletic teams and leagues, and the participants in major sporting events such as the Super Bowl and World Series, developments with respect to certain individual athletes, changes in partnerships between professional and collegiate sports organizations and the vendors that provide their uniforms and merchandise at retail, and other sports-related events or changes, including the timing of major sporting events, that may affect the Company's Lids Sports Group retail businesses, including period-to-period comparisons.  Additional factors that could affect the Company's prospects and cause differences from expectations include the ability to build, open, staff and support additional retail stores and to renew leases in existing stores and control occupancy costs, and to conduct required remodeling or refurbishment on schedule and at expected expense levels; deterioration in the performance of individual businesses or of the Company's market value relative to its book value, resulting in impairments of fixed assets or intangible assets or other adverse financial consequences, including tax consequences related thereto, especially in view of the Company's recent market valuation; unexpected changes to the market for the Company's shares, including but not limited to changes related to general disfavor of the retail sector by investors; variations from expected pension-related charges caused by conditions in the financial markets; disruptions in the Company's information technology systems either by security breaches and incidents or by potential problems associated with the implementation of new or upgraded systems;  and the cost and outcome of litigation, investigations and environmental matters involving the Company.

(1) The adjusted tax rate for the third quarter of Fiscal 2018 is 33.8% excluding a FIN 48 discrete item of less than $0.1 million.  The adjusted tax rate 

     for the third quarter of Fiscal 2017 is 35.2% excluding a FIN 48 discrete item of less than $0.1 million.

The Company believes that disclosure of earnings and earnings per share from continuing operations adjusted for the items not reflected in the 

previously announced expectations will be meaningful to investors, especially in light of the impact of such items on the results.

(1) The adjusted tax rate for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 is 33.9% excluding a FIN 48 discrete item of $0.1 million.  The adjusted tax rate for

     the first nine months of Fiscal 2017 is 35.4% excluding a FIN 48 discrete item of $0.2 million.
















(2) EPS reflects 19.3 and 20.4 million share count for Fiscal 2018 and 2017, which includes common stock equivalents in both years.












The Company believes that disclosure of earnings and earnings per share from continuing operations adjusted for the items not reflected in


the previously announced expectations will be meaningful to investors, especially in light of the impact of such items on the results.
