PVH Corp. reported 2012 fourth quarter and full year results.

Overview of Fourth Quarter Results:

Earnings per share was $1.60 on a non-GAAP basis, which includes a favorable impact related to the change in the Company’s method of accounting for retirement plans and represents a 34% increase over the prior year period’s non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.19 (as adjusted for the change).

Absent the change in accounting method, non-GAAP earnings per share would have been $1.54 for the fourth quarter, which exceeds the top end of the Company’s previous guidance by $0.05, and compares to $1.18 for the fourth quarter of 2011.

GAAP earnings per share was $1.09, which includes a negative impact related to the change in the Company’s method of accounting for retirement plans and represents a 127% increase over the prior year period’s GAAP earnings per share of $0.48 (as adjusted for the change). The negative impact of the change was $0.17 in 2012 and $0.63 in 2011.

Revenue of $1.636 billion increased 7% as compared to the prior year, including a 3% negative impact attributable to the exit from the Izod women’s and Timberland wholesale sportswear businesses and foreign currency translation and a 3% benefit from an additional week of revenue, as the 2012 fiscal year included 53 weeks of operations.

Operating margin on a non-GAAP basis increased 250 basis points due to a 320 basis point gross margin increase, driven by continued faster growth in the higher-margin Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger businesses, combined with decreased product costs across all of the Company’s businesses. GAAP operating margin increased 440 basis points due to the gross margin increase discussed above, combined with a decrease in pension expense.

Full Year 2012 Consolidated Results:

Earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis was $6.58, which includes a $0.15 favorable impact related to the retirement plan accounting change and represents an increase of 21% as compared to the prior year’s earnings per share of $5.44 (as adjusted for the change). Absent the accounting change, non-GAAP earnings per share would have been $6.43 for 2012, which exceeded the top end of the Company’s previous guidance by $0.05, and $5.38 for 2011.

GAAP earnings per share was $5.87, which includes a negative impact related to the accounting change and represents an increase of 55% as compared to the prior year’s earnings per share of $3.78 (as adjusted for the change). The negative impact of the change was $0.09 per share in 2012 and $0.58 per share in 2011.

Revenue increased 3% to $6.043 billion, including a negative impact of 4% attributable to foreign currency translation and the exited sportswear businesses. The overall increase in revenue was due to the net impact of:

A 5%, or $166.2 million, increase in the Tommy Hilfiger business, including a negative impact of approximately $110 million, or 4%, related to foreign currency translation. Within the Tommy Hilfiger North America business, revenue increased 10%, principally driven by retail comparable store sales growth of 10%. Revenue in the Tommy Hilfiger International business increased 2%, including a negative impact of 6% related to foreign currency translation.
