Gildan Q3 consolidate net sales up 1.27%

Gildan Activewear, a Canada based manufacturer of branded apparel, posted consolidate net sales of $674.5 million for the third quarter of 2015 ending October 4, against consolidate net sales of $666 million for the corresponding quarter last year, showing a marginal increase of 1.27 per cent, according to a press statement released by the company.

The company posted net sales of $440.5 million during the quarter for its printwear segment, which is a rise of 1.1 per cent from the corresponding quarter last year ($435.8 million). Net sales recorded for its branded apparel segment was $234 million, which is a rise of 1.7 per cent from the corresponding quarter last year ($230.2 million).

However, net sales posted for the quarter was lower than the figure of $700 million stated in the company's guidance. This was due to lower than expected branded apparel sales, which was in turn impacted by lower inventory replenishment by a major US retailer and low demand during the back-to-school period.

Gildan reported adjusted net earnings of $126.4 million or $0.52 per share on a diluted basis for the quarter, up 2.9 per cent and 4 per cent respectively compared with adjusted net earnings of $122.8 million or $0.50 per share on a diluted basis for the same period last year.

The company generated $149.2 million of free cash flow after financing capital expenditures of $42.2 million in the third quarter. It ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $47.1 million and outstanding bank indebtedness of $462 million.

Forecasting the outlook for the next quarter, the company said results for the fourth quarter are expected to be significantly in excess of earnings in the fourth quarter of any previous year, as the company benefits from manufacturing cost reductions from its capital expenditure programmes and lower cotton costs, combined with continuing top-line growth in sales revenues of both operating segments.
