Retailer Fifth & Pacific lowers full-year profit target

Fifth & Pacific Companies Inc revised forecasted 2012 adjusted EBITDA from a range of $125 to $140 million to $100 to $115 million. The Company also announced preliminary Q3 2012 direct-to-consumer comparable sales (inclusive of e-commerce net sales) as follows:                                             

William L. McComb, Chief Executive Officer of Fifth & Pacific Companies, Inc., said: "We updated our 2012 projections for each of our brands, and the resulting guidance for our overall corporation. While two of the brands continue to perform well, as we now have visibility as to comparable sales and margins for the third quarter at Juicy Couture, we are not seeing the improved results we were forecasting for Juicy and are not expecting Juicy to achieve its forecasted results in the fourth quarter.”

“This means our near term guidance must be brought in line with the trends we are seeing while we continue to work through merchandising improvements there. We continue to be optimistic about our ability to turn around the Juicy business results and capitalize on its very strong global brand awareness and reputation; in the meantime, kate spade's results are powerful and encouraging, and Lucky Brand is continuing to perform well."
 
Mr. McComb continued, "Where previously kate spade's outperformance of its forecasts had kept us on target overall for the year, even while Juicy had experienced difficulties during the first half of the year, because of what we know about the third quarter at Juicy, we are now forecasting consolidated fiscal 2012 adjusted EBITDA, excluding unrealized foreign currency transaction gains or losses, to be in the range of $100 to $115 million, compared to the previous range of $125 to $140 million, primarily driven by significant shortfalls in full price sell-through rates at Juicy Couture in the third quarter and expectations for these trends to continue for the balance of the year.”
 
“This new forecast also assumes continued strong performance at kate spade and performance at Lucky Brand to slightly exceed expectations. For the third quarter of 2012, we are forecasting adjusted EBITDA, excluding unrealized foreign currency transaction gains or losses, to be in the range of $17 to $20 million."
