The acquisitions of Bras N Things and Alternative Apparel contributed to sales growth in the quarter, while organic sales growth, driven by increased Champion and online sales, more than offset declines in the US brick-and-mortar channel. International operating profit growth was offset by declines in domestic operating profit.
Beginning in the first-quarter 2018, Hanes has eliminated the business-segment allocation of certain overhead selling, general and administrative expenses related to global functions in order to reflect the manner in which businesses are managed. Prior-year segment operating profit results have been revised to conform to the current presentation of segment results, HanesBrands press release said.
"We are focused on delivering quarterly results consistent with the promises we make in our guidance," said Hanes chief executive officer Gerald W Evans Jr. "We’re off to a good start. We are reaping ongoing benefits from diversifying our business through geographic expansion, Champion brand growth globally, and increased sales in the online channel. We have created powerful cash-generating global innerwear and activewear businesses that can leverage our leading market positions and brands, our robust global supply chain, and our global management expertise. This is the engine for creating shareholder value."
The company continues to expect full-year 2018 net sales of $6.72 billion to $6.82 billion, GAAP operating profit of $870 million to $905 million, adjusted operating profit excluding actions of $950 million to $985 million, GAAP EPS of $1.54 to $1.62, adjusted EPS excluding actions of $1.72 to $1.80, and net cash from operations of $675 million to $750 million. With US income tax reform, the company expects the 2018 full-year tax rate to be approximately 16 per cent.
Key assumptions in the company’s guidance include: a cautious outlook for the US brick-and-mortar consumer environment, including the first-half effect of door closures; an increase in full-year organic sales driven by online, global Champion, and international growth; and higher commodity costs and increased marketing investment to support additional planned product innovation.
Second-quarter net sales are expected to be in the range of $1.7 billion to $1.725 billion. At the midpoint of this guidance range, constant-currency organic sales are expected to decline less than 1 per cent. GAAP EPS is expected to be $0.38 to $0.40, and adjusted EPS excluding actions is expected to be $0.44 to $0.46. Charges related to acquisition integration and other actions are expected to total approximately $25 million in the second quarter. (RR)
