Hanesbrands Inc a leading marketer of innerwear, outerwear and hosiery apparel, reported results for the 2008 fourth quarter.

Total net sales in the fourth quarter declined by $124 million to $1.04 billion, and net sales for the full fiscal year declined by 5 percent to $4.25 billion. GAAP earnings per diluted share in the quarter were $0.19, and for the full year were $1.34, up slightly from a year ago.

Excluding actions, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share in the fourth quarter increased by 32 percent to $0.50, and for the full year non-GAAP EPS increased by 27 percent to $2.09.

Hanesbrands prepaid $139 million of long-term debt in the fourth quarter, compared with its goal of $75 million to $125 million. The company ended the year with inventory of $1.3 billion, approximately $50 million better than its goal. And the company ended the year with a similar level of cushion in its bank covenant debt-to-EBITDA ratio as it had at the end of the third quarter.

“We are pleased with our accomplishments in a year in which we faced rising commodity costs and an unprecedented collapse in the consumer retail sales environment,” Hanesbrands Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard A. Noll. “We successfully controlled year-end inventories, paid down debt, reduced costs, executed our supply chain strategy ahead of schedule, announced a price increase, and we delivered EPS growth of more than 25 percent for the year despite sales declines.

“We are now sharply focused on execution, conservative inventory and cost management and using available cash to pay down debt over the next 12 months. Our goal is to come out of this economic environment with momentum and as an even stronger company.”
