Kontoor Brands Reports Third Quarter 2022 Results; Updates Outlook for Full Year 2022


Kontoor Brands, Inc. (NYSE: KTB), a global lifestyle apparel company, with a portfolio led by two of the world's most iconic consumer brands, Wrangler® and Lee®, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended October 1, 2022.

"Despite the difficult environment, we are encouraged by the sell-through of our brands including continued POS share gains, in the third quarter in our largest market. However, as expected, sell-in was adversely impacted and global revenue tempered as U.S. retailer inventory rebalancing efforts and COVID-related lockdowns in China continued. Mix benefits, strategic pricing, and tight expense controls helped offset inflationary pressures and allowed us to deliver upside to our profit expectations," said Scott Baxter, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chair of Kontoor Brands.

"We expect challenging global macroeconomic conditions, particularly inflation, should continue to weigh on consumer discretionary spend, and ongoing inventory reduction actions will pressure near-term margins. However, we anticipate revenue to sequentially accelerate in the fourth quarter due to improved U.S. retail inventory levels, continued POS momentum, share gains and new business development activities. Further, our cash generation is expected to remain strong over time, giving us confidence in our capital allocation flexibility, as evidenced by our recently announced dividend increase," added Baxter.

This release refers to "adjusted" amounts from 2022 and 2021 and "constant currency" amounts, which are further described in the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section below. All per share amounts are presented on a diluted basis. Unless otherwise noted, "reported" and "constant dollar" amounts are the same.

Third Quarter 2022 Income Statement Review

Revenue was $607 million, a 7 percent decrease (5 percent decrease in constant currency) over the same period in the prior year. Revenue decreases were primarily driven by significant U.S. retailer inventory rebalancing efforts in the quarter and the impacts of lockdowns in China. Challenges in domestic wholesale and China were somewhat offset by continued strength in Digital own.com, as well as gains in the EMEA region.

U.S. revenue was $452 million, decreasing 8 percent over last year, with reductions in both the Wrangler and Lee brands. Lower shipments due to retailer inventory rebalancing weighed on U.S. wholesale, which was down 9 percent compared to the third quarter 2021. These pressures were somewhat offset by continued strength in Digital own.com, with U.S. own.com revenue increasing 14 percent compared to last year.

International revenue was $154 million, a 3 percent decrease (7 percent increase in constant currency) over the same period in the prior year. As expected, due to COVID lockdowns in the region, China decreased 24 percent (20 percent decrease in constant currency) compared to the third quarter 2021, sequentially improving from decreases of 50 percent in the second quarter of 2022. Europe increased 7 percent (27 percent increase in constant currency), driven by Digital and aided by a shift in the timing of shipments associated with the ERP implementation last year, from the third quarter to the second quarter of 2021.

Wrangler brand global revenue was $406 million, a 4 percent decrease (2 percent decrease in constant currency) from the same period in the prior year. Wrangler U.S. revenue decreased 5 percent compared to last year, primarily driven by the aforementioned reduction of shipments in U.S. wholesale due to significant retailer inventory rebalancing, somewhat offset by broad-based channel and category strength including Western, Workwear, T-shirts and Female. U.S. Wrangler.com increased 16 percent compared to last year. Wrangler international revenue increased 3 percent (15 percent increase in constant currency) compared to the third quarter 2021.

Lee brand global revenue was $198 million, a 13 percent decrease (9 percent decrease in constant currency) from the same period in the prior year. Lee U.S. revenue decreased 19 percent compared to last year, primarily driven by the aforementioned reduction of shipments due to significant retailer inventory rebalancing. Globally, non-denim categories such as T-shirts experienced significant year-over-year gains in the quarter. U.S. Lee.com increased 10 percent compared to last year. Lee international revenue decreased 6 percent (3 percent increase in constant currency) from the third quarter 2021. Strength in Europe was offset by expected reductions in China due to the impact of COVID lockdowns.

Other global revenue was $2 million, a 33 percent decrease compared to the same period in the prior year.

Gross margin decreased to 43.5 percent, a decrease of 90 basis points on a reported basis and 60 basis points on an adjusted basis, compared to the third quarter 2021. Higher inflationary pressures on input costs, inventory provisions, elevated ocean freight rates and foreign currency primarily drove the decline. The decline was partially offset by strategic pricing, channel and product mix, as well as moderating transitory costs such as air freight.

Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses were $189 million on a reported basis, and $174 million on an adjusted basis. As a percent of revenue, adjusted SG&A was 28.7 percent, increasing 20 basis points compared to adjusted SG&A during the same period in the prior year. As expected, tight controls of discretionary expenses as well as lower compensation costs were somewhat offset by higher distribution expenses, as well as continued strategic investments in digital and IT.

Operating income was $75 million on a reported basis and $90 million on an adjusted basis. Adjusted operating margin of 14.8 percent decreased 80 basis points compared to adjusted operating margin during the same period in the prior year. Higher inflationary pressures on input costs, inventory provisions and elevated ocean freight more than offset the benefits of strategic pricing and tight control of expenses.

Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was $82 million on a reported basis and $97 million on an adjusted basis. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 15.9 percent decreased 100 basis points compared to adjusted EBITDA margin during the same period in the prior year.

Earnings per share was $0.90 on a reported basis and $1.11 on an adjusted basis compared to reported EPS of $1.07 and adjusted EPS of $1.28, in the same period in the prior year.

October 1, 2022, Balance Sheet and Liquidity Review

The Company ended the third quarter 2022 with $58 million in cash and cash equivalents, and approximately $0.8 billion in long-term debt.

As of October 1, 2022, the Company had $40 million in outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility and $448 million available for borrowing against this facility.

As previously announced, the Company's Board of Directors approved a $0.02 or 4 percent increase in the regular quarterly cash dividend to $0.48 per share, payable on December 19, 2022, to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 9, 2022. With a combination of share repurchases and payout of the dividend, the Company returned a total of $140 million to shareholders during the first three quarters of 2022.

Inventory at the end of the third quarter 2022 was $678 million, up 66 percent compared to the prior-year period and 24 percent with pre-pandemic 2019 levels. Approximately 90 percent of inventory at the end of the third quarter was core product. The Company is taking proactive actions and expects inventory to return to more historical levels in mid-2023.

2022 Outlook

In consideration of impacts from retailer inventory rebalancing in the third quarter, inflation, ongoing lockdowns in China and foreign currency, the Company is revising its 2022 outlook, including the following:

Constant Currency Financial Information

The Company 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 the Company 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. 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. 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).

These constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, reported results under GAAP. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Notes to Supplemental Financial Information - Reconciliation of Adjusted Financial Measures

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally in its budgeting and review process and, in some cases, as a factor in determining compensation. In addition, adjusted EBITDA is a key financial measure for the Company's shareholders and financial leaders, as the Company's debt financing agreements require the measurement of adjusted EBITDA, along with other measures, in connection with the Company's compliance with debt covenants. While management believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating the business, this information should be considered supplemental in nature and should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternate for, reported results under GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may be different from similarly titled measures used by other companies.

(a) During the three months ended September 2022, restructuring and separation costs include charges of $13.7 million related to severance and employee-related benefits and $1.0 million of other costs, both of which are attributable to the globalization of the Company's operating model and relocation of the European headquarters. During the three months ended September 2021, restructuring and separation costs primarily related to the Company's global ERP system and information technology infrastructure build-out, as well as strategic actions taken by the Company, including adjustments resulting from the Company's transition of our India business to a licensed model. Total restructuring and separation costs resulted in a corresponding tax impact of $2.8 million and $3.5 million for the three months ended September 2022 and September 2021, respectively.

 

(b) Other adjustments have been made for the three months ended September 2021 to remove the funding fees related to the accounts receivable sale arrangement, as they are treated as interest expense in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA for debt compliance purposes. Management believes these funding fees are not material to evaluating the overall results of the Company and thus has discontinued this adjustment effective in the first quarter of 2022.
