/EIN News/ -- SECAUCUS, N.J., March 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Children’s Place, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCE), the largest pure-play children’s specialty apparel retailer in North America, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 2, 2019.
                                                                                                                                                 
Jane Elfers, President and Chief Executive Officer announced, “We have never experienced a total liquidation of a direct competitor of the size and proximity of Gymboree.  We overlap with nearly 70% of the approximately 800 Gymboree and Crazy 8 stores, all of which will complete their liquidation events and close within the next 60 days.  Additionally, we are challenged by a very late Easter.  Taken together, these create unprecedented near-term visibility challenges, and, as a result, the first half of 2019 is anticipated to be a highly disruptive time for The Children’s Place.”

Ms. Elfers continued, “To address these challenges, we took strategic action in the fourth quarter to significantly accelerate the liquidation of our seasonal inventories ahead of Gymboree’s total liquidation in Q1.  Our strategy enabled us to exit the quarter with over 50% less seasonal carryover inventory versus a year ago, with total inventories down 6.5% versus our guided range of flat to up low single-digits.  This accelerated liquidation adversely impacted our fourth quarter EPS by $0.79.  However, we believe our accelerated liquidation strategy allowed us to minimize the adverse margin impact that we would have otherwise experienced had we attempted, and potentially failed, to liquidate our seasonal carryover inventory in Q1 during the Gymboree liquidation.  Our lean inventory levels entering Q1 better position us to prioritize the sell-through of our spring seasonal product in what we anticipate will be a highly volatile first half of 2019.”

Ms. Elfers concluded, “Beyond the near-term disruption, we anticipate improved performance beginning in the back-half of 2019 with record supply reduction in the children’s apparel space.  We expect to drive margin benefits from reduced inventory levels, lower product costs, and the tapering-off of the accelerated digital transformation spend.  Importantly, today’s announced agreement to acquire the Gymboree Assets creates additional avenues of growth. We look forward to maximizing the many opportunities we have to drive profitable growth and create value for our shareholders.”

Financial Results
The Company’s results are reported in this press release on a GAAP and as adjusted, non-GAAP basis. A reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP financial information is provided at the end of this press release.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Results
Net sales decreased 6.9% to $530.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 from $570.0 million during the fourth quarter 2017, inclusive of an adverse impact of approximately $37 million resulting from the calendar shift related to the 53rd week in the fourth quarter of 2017.  The new revenue recognition rules accounted for approximately $5.8 million in sales.

Comparable retail sales decreased 0.6% in the fourth quarter of 2018.  U.S. comparable retail store sales decreased 8.2%.  Retail comparable store traffic decreased 3% in the fourth quarter, largely driven by an 11% decrease in traffic in the weeks leading up to Christmas.  Transactions and conversions decreased in the fourth quarter, primarily as a result of store inventory imbalances arising from unplanned ship from store activities.  Canada comparable retail store sales decreased 0.2% on flat traffic.  E-commerce sales increased 20.1% on a comparable week basis to 27% of total sales.

Net income was $12.0 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $9.9 million, or ($0.57) per diluted share, the previous year.  Adjusted net income was $17.9 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $45.3 million, or $2.52 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter last year.

Net income per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2018 was impacted by the following:

  • Our strategic decision to accelerate the liquidation of seasonal carryover inventory ahead of Gymboree’s first quarter liquidation event resulted in an adverse impact of $0.79 per diluted share;
  • Store traffic declines and lower conversion rates in the weeks leading into Christmas resulted in an adverse impact of $0.30 per diluted share;
  • Higher fulfillment costs as a result of higher freight expense associated with our unplanned ship from store activity, along with higher distribution center wages paid as a result of labor shortages, resulted in an adverse impact of $0.25 per diluted share; and
  • An adverse impact of approximately $37 million in sales resulting from the calendar shift related to the 53rd week in the fourth quarter of 2017, resulted in an adverse impact of $0.12 per diluted share.

Gross profit was $164.3 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $209.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted gross profit was $166.9 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $211.1 million last year, and deleveraged 550 basis points to 31.5% of sales, primarily as a result of a decline in merchandise margin related to the strategic decision to accelerate the liquidation of seasonal carryover merchandise in advance of Gymboree’s liquidation event in the first quarter 2019.  Adjusted gross margin was also adversely impacted by the deleverage of fixed expenses resulting from the modest decline in comparable retail sales, and increased penetration of our ecommerce business, which operates at a lower gross margin rate.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $132.5 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $137.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted SG&A was $128.3 million compared to $134.4 million in the fourth quarter last year and deleveraged 60 basis points as a percentage of net sales, primarily as a result of the deleverage of fixed expenses resulting from the modest decline in comparable retail sales, and the reclassification of certain items due to the new revenue recognition rules, partly offset by lower incentive compensation expense.

Operating income was $13.6 million in the fourth quarter, compared to operating income of $51.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted operating income in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $21.8 million, or 4.1% of net sales, compared to adjusted operating income of $57.0 million in the fourth quarter last year, deleveraging 590 basis points compared to last year.

For the fourth quarter, the Company’s adjusted results exclude net expenses of approximately $5.8 million, compared to excluded net expenses of approximately $55.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, comprising certain items, which the Company believes, are not reflective of the performance of its core business. For the fourth quarter of 2018, these excluded items primarily related to omni-channel fulfillment operational inefficiencies, accelerated depreciation, restructuring costs, consulting costs for organizational design efforts, state tax audit costs, asset impairment charges, and costs incurred in connection with the review of the Company’s warehouse and distribution network.  For the fourth quarter of 2017, these excluded items are primarily related to expenses associated with the new tax legislation, in addition to restructuring costs, a provision for a legal settlement and asset impairment charges.

Fiscal Year 2018
Net sales increased 3.6% to $1.938 billion in fiscal 2018 from $1.871 billion during fiscal 2017, inclusive of an adverse impact of approximately $17.0 million resulting from the calendar shift related to the 53rd week in fiscal 2017, partially offset by approximately $19.9 million due to the new revenue recognition rules. Comparable retail sales increased 4.6% in fiscal 2018.

Net income was $101.0 million, or $6.01 per diluted share, in fiscal 2018, compared to net income of $84.7 million, or $4.67 per diluted share, the previous year. Adjusted net income was $113.4 million, or $6.75 per diluted share, compared to $144.0 million, or $7.91 per diluted share.

Gross profit was $683.6 million in fiscal 2018, compared to $711.4 million in fiscal 2017.  Adjusted gross profit was $687.4 million, or 35.5% of net sales, deleveraging 260 basis points compared to last year, primarily as a result of a decline in merchandise margin related to our increased competitiveness, and increased penetration of our ecommerce business, which operates at a lower gross margin rate due to higher fulfillment costs, partially offset by the leverage of fixed expenses resulting from the increase in comparable retail sales.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses in fiscal 2018 were $498.3 million, compared to $476.5 million in fiscal 2017. Adjusted SG&A was $491.3 million, compared to $466.1 million last year, deleveraging 40 basis points compared to fiscal 2017, primarily as a result of incremental investment in our transformation initiatives and the reclassification of certain items due to the new revenue recognition rules, partially offset by the leverage of fixed expenses resulting from the increase in comparable retail sales, and lower incentive compensation expense.

Operating income was $111.3 million in fiscal 2018, compared to operating income of $161.5 million in fiscal 2017. Adjusted operating income was $128.5 million, or 6.6% of net sales, compared to $178.9 million last year, deleveraging 300 basis points.

During fiscal 2018, the Company’s adjusted results exclude net expenses of approximately $12.4 million, compared to excluded net expenses of approximately $58.8 million in fiscal 2017, comprising certain items, which the Company believes, are not reflective of the performance of its core business. For fiscal 2018, these excluded items primarily related to asset impairment charges, omni-channel fulfillment operational inefficiencies, restructuring costs, consulting costs for organizational design efforts, accelerated depreciation, costs incurred in connection with the review of the Company’s warehouse and distribution network, system transition costs and a provision for an insurance claim deductible, partially offset by a state sales and use tax audit settlement, an insurance claim settlement and other income.  For fiscal 2017, these excluded items are primarily related to expenses associated with the new tax legislation, in addition to a provision for a legal settlement, asset impairment charges and restructuring costs, partially offset by income associated with the release of reserves for prior year uncertain tax positions.

Store Openings and Closures
Consistent with the Company’s store fleet optimization initiative, we closed 16 stores and did not open any stores during the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company ended fiscal 2018 with 972 stores and square footage of 4.5 million. The Company ended the quarter with 217 international points of distribution open and operated by its eight franchise partners in 20 countries.

Capital Return Program
During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company repurchased 429.6 thousand shares for approximately $42 million, inclusive of shares repurchased and surrendered to cover tax withholdings associated with the vesting of equity awards held by management. The Company also paid a quarterly dividend of approximately $8 million, or $0.50 per share, in the quarter.

For fiscal 2018, the Company repurchased 2.0 million shares for approximately $255 million, inclusive of an accelerated share repurchase program, and shares repurchased and surrendered to cover tax withholdings associated with the vesting of equity awards held by management. The Company also paid dividends totaling approximately $33 million in fiscal 2018.  

Since 2009, the Company has repurchased approximately $1.1 billion of its common stock and, since 2014, paid approximately $100 million in dividends. At the end of the fourth quarter of 2018, approximately $240 million remained available for future share repurchases under the Company’s existing share repurchase program.

Strategic Acquisition of IP Assets of Gymboree and Crazy 8
The Company separately announced today that, as part of an auction held in connection with Gymboree’s bankruptcy proceeding, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company has entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Gymboree Group, Inc. and related entities to acquire intellectual property and related assets of Gymboree and Crazy 8 (the “Gymboree Assets”).

Outlook
The Company is providing guidance for the first quarter and fiscal year 2019.

For fiscal 2019, the Company expects:

  • Net Sales in the range of $1.890 billion to $1.915 billion
  • Comparable retail sales in the range of flat to negative 1%
  • E-commerce penetration is expected to grow from approximately 28% to over 30% of net sales
  • Adjusted operating margin in the range of 6.3% to 6.8%
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share will be in the range of $5.25 to $5.75, including:
    • Approximately $30 million of adverse sales impact and $30 million of adverse margin impact as a result of the Gymboree liquidation which will adversely impact EPS by $1.50;
    • A higher adjusted tax rate of approximately 25%, which will reduce earnings by approximately $1.15, versus fiscal 2018, with approximately $1.00 of that amount resulting from an adverse impact on share-based compensation deductibility due to our current share price; and
    • The agreement to acquire the Gymboree and Crazy 8 IP and related assets will adversely impact adjusted net income per diluted share by approximately $0.75 as we make incremental investments to support the strategic opportunities for the brands and fund the acquisition.
  • Strong cash from operations to fund the capital return program and capital expenditures
    • Capital expenditures in the range of approximately $70 to $80 million for the year
  • To utilize a third party logistics provider to assist with fulfillment of holiday e-commerce demand
  • Approximately 40 to 45 closings as part of our ongoing fleet optimization program

For first quarter of 2019, the Company expects:

  • Net Sales in the range of $385 million to $395 million
  • Comparable retail sales in the range of negative 12% to negative 10%
  • Adjusted net loss per diluted share will be in the range of $0.70 to $0.40, including:
    • An adverse EPS impact of $1.15 to $1.40 as a result of the Gymboree liquidation;
    • A higher adjusted tax rate resulting from the impact on share-based compensation tax deductibility due to our current share price will have an adverse EPS impact of approximately $0.92; and
    • The Gymboree and Crazy 8 acquisition will have an adverse EPS impact of approximately $0.15 to 0.20.

Quarter to date, traffic and comps are running down double digits, due to Gymboree’s liquidation event, delayed and lower tax refunds versus last year, and a very late Easter.
Additional details underlying the Company’s outlook for the first quarter and full year 2019 will be provided on the conference call and will also be available in the conference call transcript which will be posted on our website. An audio archive will also be available on the Company’s website.
