 G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. Announces Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Fiscal 2016 Results
   Tuesday, March 22, 2016 7:00:01 AM ET

--Non-GAAP Net Income per Share Increases 8% to $2.44

--Adjusted EBITDA Increases 13% to $210.1 Million

--Initiates Fiscal 2017 Guidance, Expects Solid Revenue and Profit Growth

G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. (NasdaqGS:GIII) today announced operating results for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2016.

Net sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2016 were up 11% to $2.34 billion from $2.12 billion in the prior year. The full year sales growth was driven by strong performances from many of the Company’s wholesale businesses, as well as by growth in G.H. Bass & Co. comparable store sales.

On an adjusted basis, excluding items resulting in other income in the current fiscal year equal to $0.02 per share, net of taxes, and in the prior year equal to $0.22 per share, net of taxes, non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the full year increased 8% to $2.44 per share from $2.26 in the prior fiscal year.

The Company reported GAAP net income for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2016, of $114.3 million, or $2.46 per diluted share, compared to $110.4 million, or $2.48 per diluted share, in the prior year. For the fiscal year ended January 31, 2016, adjusted EBITDA increased by 13% to $210.1 million from $186.6 million in the prior fiscal year.

For the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2016, G-III reported that net sales increased by 3% to $527.4 million from $514.3 million in the fourth quarter last year and that net income per diluted share was $0.17 compared to $0.48 in the fourth quarter last year. The increase in net sales was the result of strength in many of the Company’s wholesale businesses and G.H. Bass retail, offset in part, by lower sales and higher promotion costs with respect to outerwear in our wholesale and Wilsons Leather retail businesses. The weaker outerwear sales in the fourth quarter are the primary reason that our sales and profits for the full year were lower than previously forecasted.

Morris Goldfarb, G-III’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, said, "Fiscal 2016 was a very strong year for us, although we were disappointed by our wholesale and retail outerwear business, which was heavily impacted by the warmest winter ever recorded. That said, we had excellent performances from our non-outerwear Calvin Klein businesses, as well as our dress and team sports businesses. We have significantly expanded our relationship with the Tommy Hilfiger brand and increased our financial investment and partnership with the Karl Lagerfeld brand. We will be making significant investments in these brands going forward. Our organization is energized by the opportunities in front of us and excited to take advantage of our opportunities in fiscal 2017."

Outlook

Also today, G-III Apparel Group issued guidance for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2017. For fiscal 2017, the Company is forecasting net sales of approximately $2.56 billion and net income between $120 million and $125 million, or between $2.55 and $2.65 per diluted share. The Company is also projecting EBITDA for fiscal 2017 to be between $228 million and $236 million.

For the first fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2016, the Company is forecasting net sales of approximately $475 million and net income between $0.1 million and $2.4 million, or between $0.00 and $0.05 per diluted share. This compares to net sales of $433 million and net income of $6.8 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

Non-GAAP diluted net income per share is a "non-GAAP financial measure" that excludes (i) items resulting in other income in fiscal 2016 which consists of the reduction of the estimated contingent consideration payable in connection with the acquisition of Vilebrequin and (ii) items resulting in other income in fiscal 2015 which mainly consists of (a) the sale of the right to operate Calvin Klein Performance stores in Asia, including the sale of the Company’s interest in a joint venture that operated Calvin Klein Performance stores in China and expenses associated with this other income incurred in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, (b) the reduction of a portion of the estimated contingent consideration payable in connection with the acquisition of Vilebrequin, and (c) the early extinguishment of debt due to the seller of Vilebrequin for an amount less than the principal amount of this debt. Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding items of other income that are not indicative of our core business operating results. Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure to assess our performance on a comparative basis and believes that it is also useful to investors to enable them to assess our performance on a comparative basis across historical periods and facilitate comparisons of our operating results to those of our competitors. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is a "non-GAAP financial measure" which represents earnings before depreciation and amortization, interest and financing charges, net, and income tax expense and excludes (i) items resulting in other income in fiscal 2016 which consists of the reduction of the estimated contingent consideration payable in connection with the acquisition of Vilebrequin and (ii) items resulting in other income in fiscal 2015 which mainly consists of (a) the sale of the right to operate Calvin Klein Performance stores in Asia, including the sale of the Company’s interest in a joint venture that operated Calvin Klein Performance stores in China and expenses associated with this other income incurred in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, (b) the reduction of a portion of the estimated contingent consideration payable in connection with the acquisition of Vilebrequin, and (c) the early extinguishment of debt due to the seller of Vilebrequin for an amount less than the principal amount of this debt. Adjusted EBITDA is being presented as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that it is a common measure of operating performance in the apparel industry. Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of the Company’s liquidity, as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
