Delta Apparel raises fiscal 2010 sales & EPS guidance

Jan '10
Delta Apparel, Inc. announced that second quarter revenues increased 24% to approximately $91 million compared to $73.4 million in the prior year second quarter.

The Company expects earnings for the quarter ended December 26, 2009 to be in the range of $0.09 to $0.11 per diluted share. This range includes a charge of $0.03 per diluted share relating to the mediated settlement of the lawsuit filed against the Company by the bankruptcy trustee for National Gas Distributors, LLC which was settled in December 2009. The prior year second quarter earnings were $0.07 per diluted share, which included a favorable tax adjustment of $0.04 per diluted share.

Fiscal 2010 Guidance

The Company is raising its expectations of net sales and earnings for the 2010 fiscal year ending July 3, 2010. For the full fiscal year 2010, the Company now expects net sales in the range of $375 to $385 million compared to its prior guidance of net sales of $360 to $380 million and its fiscal 2009 net sales of $355.2 million. Diluted earnings are now expected to be in the range of $0.95 to $1.10 per share compared to its prior guidance of diluted earnings of $0.80 to $1.00 and its fiscal 2009 earnings of $0.76 per diluted share.

The improved outlook for fiscal 2010 reflects the stronger than anticipated sales and earnings achieved in the first half of the fiscal year. The Company, however, remains concerned about the U.S. economy and its ongoing impact on consumer spending. In addition, the dramatic increase in cotton prices will negatively impact the Company's future profitability unless it can pass these higher costs to its customers. While the Company believes it has taken into consideration the heightened risk factors associated with the current economic climate, significant deterioration in the economy could negatively impact the Company's ability to achieve its expectations.

The Company plans to report fiscal 2010 second quarter results on Monday, January 25, 2010 after the market closes.

Robert W. Humphreys, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our sales growth across all business units combined with improved profitability is a major accomplishment. For the past several quarters we have been building market share in all of our operating divisions, allowing us to better leverage fixed manufacturing and administrative cost. We are encouraged to achieve this growth while most apparel markets have been contracting, and believe we are well positioned to enjoy further growth as market conditions improve. Our sales expansion continues to be driven from our focus on designing and delivering a broad range of apparel products across diverse distribution channels. We continue to develop sales opportunities within our existing businesses, and the acquisition of Art Gun provides us direct entrée into the customized apparel market. Our manufacturing performance is improving as we make further progress to increase efficiencies, improve quality and reduce costs. As the spring selling season approaches, we believe our competitive position and operational capabilities position us well to maintain the Company's trend of sales growth and increasing profits in the second half of fiscal year 2010.”
