Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation reported 2011 third quarter and year to date results.

Overview of Third Quarter Results:
• Earnings per share was $1.89 on a non-GAAP basis, which exceeded the Company's guidance and the consensus estimate and represents an increase of 13% over the prior year's third quarter non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.67.
• GAAP earnings per share was $1.54, and included a one-time unplanned pre-tax expense of $20.7 million incurred in connection with the Company's buyout of the Tommy Hilfiger perpetual license in India, as compared to the Company's guidance of at least $1.67. GAAP earnings per share in the prior year's third quarter was $1.39.
• Revenue increased 9% to $1.654 billion over the prior year's third quarter. The revenue increase is primarily attributable to the net effect of (i) an increase of $118.2 million, or 17%, in the Tommy Hilfiger business; (ii) an increase of $28.7 million, or 11%, in the Calvin Klein business; partially offset by (iii) a decline of $9.2 million, or 2%, in the Heritage Brands business.
• Earnings before interest and taxes on a non-GAAP basis increased 5% to $227.3 million, due to strong overall performance in the faster growing Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein businesses, partially offset by lower gross margin rates primarily due to anticipated product cost increases.
• GAAP earnings before interest and taxes improved to $196.8 million from $178.3 million in the prior year's third quarter, primarily due to revenue growth and the impact of reduced acquisition, integration and restructuring charges, partially offset by lower gross margin rates, which were anticipated.

CEO Comments:
Commenting on these results, Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, noted, “We are extremely pleased with our third quarter results, which were driven by our Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein businesses. Despite the volatile market conditions, both of these brands continue to exhibit exceptional growth, both domestically and internationally.

"The Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein businesses represent approximately three quarters of our overall revenues and their strong global performance has more than offset some of the challenges we have been facing with certain of our more moderate heritage businesses.”

Mr. Chirico continued, “In conjunction with our initiative to invest in broadening the reach of the Tommy Hilfiger brand internationally, we have recently invested in joint ventures for Tommy Hilfiger in India and China, as well as announced plans to bring the Tommy Hilfiger European men's tailored apparel business in-house.”

Mr. Chirico concluded, “Given the current momentum of our business, including a strong Thanksgiving weekend, and despite the uncertain global economic and market conditions, we believe we are well-positioned for another solid holiday season. If these business trends continue, we believe there ispotential for upside in our results as against our fourth quarter and full year guidance. We remain focused on expanding the global reach of our brands, led by Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, and plan to continue our investments in marketing during the fourth quarter. We believe that this disciplined investment in our brands, along with our continued execution of our business strategies and an improving balance sheet, will position us to deliver strong earnings results and drive shareholder value in the fourth quarter and beyond.”
