Genesco Reports Fourth Quarter, Fiscal 2014 Results

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesco Inc. (NYSE: GCO) today reported earnings from continuing operations for the 13-week period ended February 1, 2014, of $42.2 million, or $1.79 per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $38.9 million, or $1.64 per diluted share, for the 14-week period ended February 2, 2013.  Fiscal 2014 fourth quarter results reflect pretax items of $7.2 million, or $0.37 per share after tax, including $3.0 million of expenses related to deferred purchase price payments in connection with the acquisition of Schuh Group Limited, which are required to be expensed as compensation because the payment is contingent upon the payees' continued employment; and $5.7 million for network intrusion expenses, other legal matters, a lease termination, and asset impairment charges, partially offset by a $1.5 million gain related to the change in accounting for deferred bonuses under the Company's EVA Incentive Plan announced by the Company in September 2013.  Fiscal 2013 fourth quarter results reflect pre-tax items of $19.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share after tax, primarily including network intrusion expenses, deferred purchase price expenses and asset impairments, offset by a gain of $0.2 million from the change in accounting for deferred bonuses.

Adjusted for the items described above in both periods, earnings from continuing operations were $51.0 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2014, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $51.4 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013.  For consistency with Fiscal 2014's previously announced earnings expectations and with previously reported adjusted results for the prior year period, the Company believes that the disclosure of the results from continuing operations adjusted for these items will be useful to investors. A reconciliation of earnings and earnings per share from continuing operations in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles with the adjusted earnings and earnings per share numbers presented in this paragraph is set forth on Schedule B to this press release.

Net sales for the 13-week fourth quarter of Fiscal 2014 decreased 0.5% to $793 million from $797 million in the 14-week fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013.  Comparable sales in the fourth quarter 2014 increased 1% for the Company with a 4% increase in the Lids Sports Group, a flat comp in the Journeys Group, a 7% decrease in the Schuh Group, and an 11% increase in the Johnston & Murphy Group.

The Company also reported net sales for the 52-week period ended February 1, 2014, of $2.62 billion, an increase of 0.8% from net sales of $2.60 billion in the 53-week period ended February 2, 2013.  Earnings from continuing operations for Fiscal 2014 were $93.0 million, or $3.94 per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $112.9 million, or $4.69 per diluted share, for Fiscal 2013. Fiscal 2014 earnings reflect after-tax charges of $1.15 per diluted share, including the effects of the change in accounting for deferred bonuses under the EVA incentive plan, network intrusion-related expenses, compensation expense associated with the Schuh deferred purchase price, asset impairments, other legal matters, and a lease termination, partially offset by a gain on another lease termination.  Fiscal 2013 earnings reflect after-tax charges of $0.37 per diluted share, including network intrusion-related expenses, compensation expense associated with the Schuh deferred purchase price, asset impairments, other legal matters, and an adjusted effective tax rate, offset by a $1.9 million gain related to the change in accounting for deferred bonuses. 

Adjusted for the listed items in both years, earnings from continuing operations were $120.3 million, or $5.09 per diluted share, for Fiscal 2014, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $121.8 million, or $5.06 per diluted share, for Fiscal 2013. For consistency with previously announced earnings expectations, which did not reflect the listed items, the Company believes that disclosure of earnings from continuing operations adjusted for those items will be useful to investors. A reconciliation of the adjusted financial measures to their corresponding measures as reported pursuant to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is included in Schedule B to this press release.

Robert J. Dennis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Genesco, said, "Our Fiscal 2014 performance reflects a challenging selling environment throughout the year, including the fourth quarter.  While our overall results were lower than we planned, we are confident the fundamentals of our business remain intact.

"The inconsistent sales patterns that characterized last year carried over into the start of Fiscal 2015 with comparable sales down 2% through Saturday, March 8, 2014.  Following a difficult first week that was marked by severe winter storms in several of our key markets, comparable sales turned positive and margins have held up. However, we remain cautious in our outlook for the first half of the fiscal year given the lack of a strong new fashion driver in the teen footwear space and continued uncertainty around customer traffic.

"Based on current visibility, we expect adjusted Fiscal 2015 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $5.40 to $5.55, which represents a 6% to 9% increase over Fiscal 2014's adjusted earnings per share of $5.09. Consistent with previous guidance, these expectations do not include expected non-cash asset impairments and other charges, which are estimated in the range of $3.1 million to $4.5 million pretax, or $0.08 to $0.12 per share, after tax, in Fiscal 2015. They also do not reflect compensation expense associated with the Schuh deferred purchase price as described above, which is currently estimated at approximately $7.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the full year. This guidance assumes comparable sales increases in the low single digit range for the full fiscal year."  A reconciliation of the adjusted financial measures cited in the guidance to their corresponding measures as reported pursuant to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is included in Schedule B to this press release.

Dennis concluded, "We believe we have a sound plan in place that balances protecting near-term profitability with investments that bolster our omnichannel capabilities and expand the footprint of our underpenetrated retail concepts."

Cautionary Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
This release contains forward-looking statements, including those regarding the performance outlook for the Company and its individual businesses and all other statements not addressing solely historical facts or present conditions. Actual results could vary materially from the expectations reflected in these statements. A number of factors could cause differences.  These include adjustments to estimates reflected in forward-looking statements, including the amount of required accruals related to the earn-out bonus potentially payable to Schuh management based on the achievement of certain performance objectives; the timing and amount of non-cash asset impairments related to retail store fixed assets or to intangible assets of acquired businesses; weakness in the consumer economy; competition in the Company's markets; inability of customers to obtain credit; fashion trends that affect the sales or product margins of the Company's retail product offerings; changes in buying patterns by significant wholesale customers; bankruptcies or deterioration in financial condition of significant wholesale customers; disruptions in product supply or distribution; unfavorable trends in fuel costs, foreign exchange rates, foreign labor and material costs, and other factors affecting the cost of products; the Company's ability to continue to complete and integrate acquisitions, expand its business and diversify its product base; and changes in the timing of holidays or in the onset of seasonal weather affecting period-to-period sales comparisons. Additional factors that could affect the Company's prospects and cause differences from expectations include the ability to build, open, staff and support additional retail stores and to renew leases in existing stores and control occupancy costs, and to conduct required remodeling or refurbishment on schedule and at expected expense levels; deterioration in the performance of individual businesses or of the Company's market value relative to its book value, resulting in impairments of fixed assets or intangible assets or other adverse financial consequences; unexpected changes to the market for the Company's shares; variations from expected pension-related charges caused by conditions in the financial markets; and the cost and outcome of litigation, investigations and environmental matters involving the Company. Additional factors are cited in the "Risk Factors," "Legal Proceedings" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of, and elsewhere in, our SEC filings, copies of which may be obtained from the SEC website, www.sec.gov, or by contacting the investor relations department of Genesco via our website, www.genesco.com. Many of the factors that will determine the outcome of the subject matter of this release are beyond Genesco's ability to control or predict. Genesco undertakes no obligation to release publicly the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. Forward-looking statements reflect the expectations of the Company at the time they are made. The Company disclaims any obligation to update such statements.

(1) All adjustments are net of tax where applicable.  The tax rate for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2014 is 37.1%

    excluding a FIN 48 discrete item of $0.1 million.  The tax rate for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013 is 

    36.2% excluding a FIN 48 discrete item of $0.1 million.







(2) EPS reflects 23.6 million and 23.8 million share counts for Fiscal 2014 and 2013, respectively, which includes 

     common stock equivalents in both years.







The Company believes that disclosure of earnings and earnings per share from continuing operations adjusted

for the items not reflected in the previously announced expectations will be meaningful to investors, especially

in light of the impact of such items on the results.

(1) All adjustments are net of tax where applicable.  The tax rate for the Fiscal 2014 is 37.2% excluding a FIN 48

    discrete item of $0.2 million.  The tax rate for Fiscal 2013 is 36.4% excluding a FIN 48 discrete item of $0.3 million. 







(2) EPS reflects 23.6 million and 24.0 million share counts for Fiscal 2014 and 2013, respectively, which includes 

     common stock equivalents in both years.







The Company believes that disclosure of earnings and earnings per share from continuing operations adjusted

for the items not reflected in the previously announced expectations will be meaningful to investors, especially

in light of the impact of such items on the results.
