Carter’s, Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results

Carter’s, Inc. (NYSE:CRI), the largest branded marketer in North America of apparel exclusively for babies and young children, today reported its first quarter fiscal 2021 results.

“Our first quarter sales and earnings meaningfully exceeded our expectations, with growth in each of our retail, wholesale, and international business segments,” said Michael D. Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We saw demand for our brands surge in March driven by the strength of our Spring product offerings, unprecedented government stimulus supporting families with young children, and progress with vaccinations enabling more children to return to school.

“In the first quarter, we achieved a record gross profit margin and our best operating profit margin in over a decade. This performance reflects our focus on more effective promotions, inventory management, improved price realization, and productivity.

“Given our strong start to the year, we have raised our sales and earnings forecasts for 2021. We have also amended our credit facility to enable the resumption of capital distributions, which were temporarily suspended in the early days of the pandemic. Accordingly, our Board of Directors has declared a dividend payable to shareholders commencing in the second quarter.

“Despite ongoing pandemic-related challenges, we believe the strength of our brands, unparalleled multi-channel model, depth of relationships with essential retailers, and strong value proposition will enable us to achieve our growth objectives. And, with the continued progress with vaccinations, we believe Carter’s is well positioned to benefit from a global recovery from the pandemic.”

In addition to the results presented in this earnings release in accordance with GAAP, the Company has provided adjusted, non-GAAP financial measurements, as presented below. The Company believes these adjustments provide a meaningful comparison of the Company’s results and afford investors a view of what management considers to be the Company’s core performance.

Consolidated Results

First Quarter of Fiscal 2021 compared to First Quarter of Fiscal 2020

Net sales increased $132.9 million, or 20.3%, to $787.4 million, reflecting strong growth in all business segments. The Company’s U.S. Retail, U.S. Wholesale, and International segments grew 27%, 12%, and 19%, respectively. Consolidated net sales in fiscal March increased 59% compared to the prior year period. Demand for the Company’s brands, including traffic to its retail stores, improved meaningfully following the passage of the $1.9 trillion pandemic relief legislation on March 11, 2021. First quarter fiscal 2020 results were adversely affected by store closures in North America and lower wholesale customer shipments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Favorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates improved consolidated net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 by $3.1 million.

Operating income increased $206.0 million to $127.5 million, compared to an operating loss of $78.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Operating margin improved to 16.2%, compared to (12.0%) in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income (a non-GAAP measure) increased $154.9 million to $128.5 million, compared to an adjusted operating loss of $26.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. First quarter fiscal 2020 adjusted operating income reflected store closures in North America, lower wholesale customer shipments, and higher inventory and bad debt provisions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Adjusted operating margin increased to 16.3%, compared to (4.0%) in the prior year period, reflecting the strong performance of the Company’s Spring product offering, including improved price realization, the absence of COVID-related inventory provisions, and expense leverage.

Net income increased $164.9 million to $86.2 million, or $1.96 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $78.7 million, or $1.82 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure) increased $121.7 million to $87.0 million, compared to a net loss of $34.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted earnings per diluted share (a non-GAAP measure) improved to $1.98, compared to an adjusted loss per diluted share of $0.81 in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Net cash used in operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $39.5 million compared to net cash used in operations of $14.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The increase in net cash used in operating activities reflects strong net income offset by changes in vendor payment terms.

See the “Business Segment Results” and “Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Results” sections of this release for additional disclosures regarding business segment performance and non-GAAP measures.

Liquidity and Return of Capital

The Company’s total liquidity at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $1.8 billion, comprised of cash and cash equivalents of $1.05 billion and approximately $745 million in available borrowing capacity on its secured revolving credit facility.

On May 4, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement with its lenders to amend its secured revolving credit facility. Among other provisions, the amendment permitted borrowing additional capital and provided financial covenant flexibility through the third fiscal quarter of 2021 while restricting the Company’s ability to pay cash dividends or repurchase its common stock.

As previously announced, on April 21, 2021, the Company further amended its secured revolving credit agreement to permit the Company, subject to certain restrictions, to pay cash dividends and repurchase common stock in aggregate amounts up to $250 million through the date the Company delivers its financial statements and associated certificates relating to the third fiscal quarter of 2021. Thereafter, provisions of the Company's secured revolving credit facility largely revert to their pre-pandemic terms.

The Company’s Board of Directors on April 27, 2021 approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.40 per share for payment on May 28, 2021, to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 12, 2021. The Company’s Board of Directors will evaluate future distributions of capital, including share repurchases and dividends, based on a number of factors, including restrictions under the Company’s revolving credit facility, business conditions, the Company’s financial performance, and other considerations.

2021 Business Outlook

The Company’s outlook for the balance of fiscal year 2021 contemplates marketplace risks and opportunities with uncertain potential effects on business results. Marketplace risks include: supply chain disruptions, higher transportation costs, pandemic-related birth count declines, COVID-19 case trends, store traffic, product cost inflation, international consumer demand, and the promotional environment. Opportunities include: share gains resulting from the Company’s market-leading product assortments and differentiated marketing capabilities, accelerated vaccination rates, less restrictive business and social gathering directives, a return to in-person classroom instruction, and the benefit of child tax credits and additional government stimulus.

Factors forecasted to adversely affect the comparability of second half 2021 results to the prior year period include: changes in the timing of wholesale shipments, retail store closures, increased compensation provisions, higher effective tax rates, and in 2020, the release of inventory reserves and a 53 week fiscal year. Accordingly, the Company’s strong first quarter fiscal 2021 performance may not be replicated in subsequent quarters in the balance of the year.

For fiscal 2021 (a 52 week fiscal year), the Company projects net sales will increase approximately 10% and adjusted diluted earnings per share will increase approximately 40% compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $4.16 in fiscal 2020. This forecast excludes: 1) approximately $7 million of expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including costs associated with additional protective equipment and cleaning supplies, 2) approximately $1 million of restructuring costs, and 3) a benefit of approximately $1.5 million related to a gain on modifications of previously-impaired leases.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company projects net sales will increase approximately 35%, adjusted operating income will increase approximately 35% (compared to adjusted operating income of $41.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020) and adjusted diluted earnings per share will increase approximately 25% (compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.54 in the second quarter of fiscal 2020). This forecast excludes approximately $2 million of expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including costs associated with additional protective equipment and cleaning supplies.

(e)

Impairments include gain on the remeasurement of retail store operating leases.

(f)

Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal quarter and four fiscal quarters ended April 3, 2021 excludes a customer bankruptcy recovery of $38,000.

 
Note: Results may not be additive due to rounding.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures that are not defined or prepared in accordance with GAAP. We define EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for the items described in footnotes (a) - (f) to the table above.

We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we consider them important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. These measures also afford investors a view of what management considers to be the Company's core performance.

The use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA instead of net income or cash flows from operations has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent net income or cash flow from operations as those terms are defined by GAAP and do not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. While EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures are frequently used as measures of operations and the ability to meet debt service requirements, these terms are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters that we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations. Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as discretionary cash available to us for working capital, debt service and other purposes.

The Company evaluates its net sales on both an “as reported” and a “constant currency” basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates that occurred between the comparative periods. Constant currency net sales results are calculated by translating current period net sales in local currency to the U.S. dollar amount by using the currency conversion rate for the prior comparative period. The Company consistently applies this approach to net sales for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. The Company believes that the presentation of net sales on a constant currency basis provides useful supplemental information regarding changes in our net sales that were not due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates and such information is consistent with how the Company assesses changes in its net sales between comparative periods.

Note: Results may not be additive due to rounding.
