FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE:TLRD) today announced consolidated financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended February 2, 2019 and provided guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

For the fourth quarter ended February 2, 2019, the Company reported GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.12 and adjusted diluted loss per share of $0.28, compared to GAAP diluted loss per share of $0.01 and adjusted diluted loss per share of $0.00 for the same period a year ago.

Fourth quarter 2018 GAAP results include a favorable non-cash adjustment to net sales totaling $17.6 million reflecting a reduction of the deferred revenue liability as a result of changes made to our loyalty programs during the fourth quarter of 2018.

For the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019, the Company reported GAAP diluted EPS of $1.64 and adjusted diluted EPS(1) of $2.31, compared to GAAP diluted EPS of $1.95 and adjusted diluted EPS of $2.20 for the same period a year ago.

"In fiscal 2018, we delivered positive retail comps of 1.2%, with all brands positive, and we reported full year adjusted EPS of $2.31, consistent with the revised guidance we provided in January. We significantly strengthened our balance sheet, reducing our total debt by $232 million and extending the maturity on our term loan to 2025, and we generated strong operating cash flow of $323 million," said Tailored Brands Executive Chairman Dinesh Lathi.

"While all of our retail brands delivered positive comps for the full year, during the fourth quarter, comps at Men's Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank were down and this trend has continued into the first quarter of 2019. We attribute the current softness to both the macro-environment as well as the need for us to execute more quickly and effectively on our core growth strategies: deliver personalized products and services, create inspiring and seamless experiences in and across every channel, and build brands that stand for something more than just price. Our teams are intently focused on delivering against these objectives in fiscal 2019 as we look to build long-term sustainable value creation for our stakeholders."

In fiscal 2017, the fourth quarter and year included an additional operating week ("53rd week") compared to fiscal 2018. Net sales related to the extra week in fiscal 2017 were $45.7 million and the Company estimates that the impact of the extra week was $0.05 per diluted share.

(1) In fiscal 2018, adjusted items consisted of a favorable net sales adjustment reflecting the impact of changes made to our loyalty programs, a goodwill impairment charge related to our corporate apparel business, losses on extinguishment of debt related to the refinancing and repricing of the Company's term loan and the partial redemption of senior notes, costs related to the retirement of our former CEO, costs related to the closure of a rental product distribution center, a loss upon sale of our divestiture of the MW Cleaners business and the finalization of the tax effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. In fiscal 2017, adjusted items consisted of costs to terminate our tuxedo rental license agreement with Macy's, a goodwill impairment charge related to our divestiture of MW Cleaners and one-time tax adjustments. See Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures for additional information on items excluded from adjusted EPS.

On a GAAP basis, retail net sales decreased 7.3% to $730.0 million. On an adjusted basis, retail net sales decreased 9.5% to $712.4 million. The decrease was primarily due to the impact of last year's 53rd week, the 1.5% decrease in retail comparable sales, and a $12.0 million decrease in alteration and other services revenue largely resulting from the MW Cleaners divestiture.

Corporate apparel net sales decreased 23.3% to $55.7 million, primarily due to lower replenishment demand in both the United Kingdom ("UK") and the U.S., the impact of last year's 53rd week, and the impact of a weaker British pound this year.

As a percent of net sales, consolidated gross margin increased 100 basis points to 38.3%. On an adjusted basis, consolidated gross margin decreased $37.9 million, or 50 basis points, to 36.8% primarily due to deleveraging of occupancy costs driven by the impact of the 53rd week partially offset by higher corporate apparel gross margins due to customer mix and the impact of renegotiated pricing arrangements with our UK customers.

On a GAAP basis, retail segment gross margin was $283.7 million, a decrease of $18.5 million, primarily due to the impact of last year's 53rd week, somewhat offset by the $17.6 million favorable net sales adjustment reflecting the impact of changes made to our loyalty programs.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Cash and cash equivalents at the end of fiscal 2018 were $55.4 million, a decrease of $48.2 million compared to the end of 2017, primarily resulting from the use of cash on hand in the second quarter of 2018 to fund a portion of the $175 million partial redemption of senior notes. At the end of the 2018, there were $48.5 million of borrowings outstanding on our revolving credit facility.

Inventories decreased $21.5 million to $830.4 million at the end of 2018 compared to the end of 2017, primarily due to a 10.6% reduction in corporate apparel segment inventories, including the impact of foreign exchange. Retail segment inventories were down 1.2%.

Total debt at the end of 2018 was approximately $1.2 billion, a decrease of $231.9 million compared to the end of 2017. During the fourth quarter, the Company made its scheduled $2.3 million payment on its term loan and repaid $10.0 million on its revolving credit facility.

Cash flow from operating activities for fiscal 2018 was $322.7 million compared to $350.8 million last year. The decrease was driven by higher inventory purchases compared to last year partially offset by higher net earnings, after adjusting for certain items primarily related to extinguishment of debt and goodwill impairment, as well as favorable fluctuations in accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities primarily due to timing.

Capital expenditures for fiscal 2018 were $82.3 million compared to $95.0 million last year.

UNAUDITED NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(In thousands, except per share amounts)

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to providing financial results in accordance with GAAP, we have provided adjusted information for our fiscal fourth quarters and twelve months of 2018 and 2017. This non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of the Company's financial performance by removing the impacts of large, unusual or unique transactions that we believe are not indicative of our core business results. For fiscal 2018, adjusted items consisted of a favorable adjustment to net sales reflecting a reduction of the deferred revenue liability as a result of changes made to our loyalty programs during the fourth quarter of 2018, a goodwill impairment charge related to our corporate apparel business, losses on extinguishment of debt related to the refinancing and re-pricing of the Company's term loan and the partial redemption of senior notes, costs related to the retirement of our former CEO, costs related to the closure of a rental product distribution center, a loss upon sale of our divestiture of the MW Cleaners business and finalization of the tax effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. For fiscal 2017, adjusted items consisted of costs to terminate our tuxedo rental license agreement with Macy's, a goodwill impairment charge related to our divestiture of MW Cleaners and one-time tax adjustments.

Management uses these adjusted results to assess the Company's performance, to make decisions about how to allocate resources and to develop expectations for future performance. In addition, adjusted EPS is used as a performance measure in the Company's executive compensation program to determine the number of performance units that are ultimately earned for certain equity awards.

The non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or as being superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management strongly encourages investors and shareholders to review the Company's financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

A reconciliation of first quarter fiscal 2019 adjusted EPS, which is a forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is not provided because the Company is unable to provide such reconciliation without unreasonable effort. The inability to provide this reconciliation is due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty predicting the occurrence, the financial impact and the periods in which the non-GAAP adjustments may be recognized. These GAAP measures may include the impact of items such as costs related to our multi-year cost saving initiative and the tax effect of such items. Historically, the Company has excluded these types of items from non-GAAP financial measures. The Company currently expects to continue to exclude these items in future disclosures of non-GAAP financial measures and may also exclude other items that may arise. The decisions and events that typically lead to the recognition of non-GAAP adjustments are inherently unpredictable as to if or when they may occur. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP information to our actual results follow and amounts may not sum due to rounded numbers. In addition, only the line items affected by adjustments are shown in the tables.
