Ralph Lauren Q1 FY'14 sales up 4%

Aug '13
Ralph Lauren Corporation reported net income of $181 million, or $1.94 per diluted share, for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014, compared to net income of $193 million, or $2.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of Fiscal 2013.

Highlights:

-First Quarter Net Revenues Increased 4% to $1.7 Billion
-Strong Operating Margin of 16.7% Inclusive of Investments in Growth Initiatives
-Earnings per Diluted Share Was $1.94 in the First Quarter
-Free Cash Flow Increased 11% to $229 Million in the First Quarter

"We made important progress on several key initiatives during the first quarter," said Ralph Lauren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We opened a spectacular men’s luxury flagship store in Hong Kong, our first Polo store in East Hampton and several additional, high profile projects around the world are developing nicely. We’ve got exciting new product initiatives planned for fall, particularly with accessories, and we intend to support them with innovative merchandising strategies and compelling advertising and marketing campaigns. I am confident that the investments we are making today can support profitable, sustainable growth for us over the long term."

"Once again, our first quarter results demonstrate the resilient margin structure of our diversified operating model," said Roger Farah, President and Chief Operating Officer. "Despite an uneven global operating environment, we planned the business prudently and achieved sales and profit levels that exceeded our expectations, even as we make important investments in our long-term growth objectives and in the infrastructure to support them. We expect that our more recent investments in new stores, e-commerce operations and international expansion will contribute to accelerated sales and profit momentum in the second half of the year."

First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Income Statement Review

Net Revenues: Net revenues for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014 rose 4% to $1.7 billion. Excluding the net negative impact from foreign currency translation and discontinued businesses, net revenues increased approximately 6% in the first quarter.

Wholesale Sales:  Wholesale segment sales grew 6% to $735 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2014. Wholesale revenue growth was primarily a result of the contribution from the newly transitioned Chaps men’s sportswear operations and continued growth for certain core North American merchandise categories.

A planned reduction in shipments to certain European customers and the transition of certain Japanese wholesale distribution to directly operated concession shops partially mitigated wholesale revenue growth during the quarter.

Retail Sales: Retail sales rose 3% to $879 million from $857 million in the first quarter last year, reflecting the incremental contribution from new stores and strong growth for e-commerce operations worldwide that was partially offset by the net negative impact of foreign currency translation. Excluding the impacts of discontinued businesses and foreign currency effects, retail sales increased 6% from the prior year period.
