Famous Footwear reports record first quarter operating profit

ST. LOUIS--()--Brown Shoe Company, Inc. (NYSE: BWS, brownshoe.com) today reported first quarter 2013 financial results, with net sales of $588.7 million versus first quarter 2012 net sales of $598.2 million, reflecting an adjustment for discontinued operations. However, results for the first quarter of 2013 and 2012 also included sales of $0.2 million and $10.2 million, respectively, from brands and businesses the company has exited. Excluding exited brands, year-over-year net sales were up slightly in the quarter.

On a GAAP basis, the company reported a net loss of ($10.8) million, or ($0.26) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013 versus earnings of $1.7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the prior year. First quarter 2013 results included $28.8 million of costs associated with our ongoing portfolio realignment efforts, while earnings for the first quarter of 2012 included $12.8 million of portfolio realignment and ASG integration costs.

On an adjusted(1) basis, net earnings of $13.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, improved 37.7% compared to $10.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the prior year. Gross profit margin for the first quarter of 2013 improved to 40.8% from 39.2% in 2012.

“In addition to stronger-than-expected adjusted EPS of $0.32, we reported record first quarter operating profit of $29 million at Famous Footwear, as we saw improved consumer conversion related to our strategic real estate, inventory and omni-channel efforts,” said Diane Sullivan, president and chief executive officer of Brown Shoe Company. “At wholesale, we refined our portfolio, with the recent sale of Avia and Nevados, and we intend to use the related proceeds in our 2013 debt reduction efforts. In the first quarter, prior to the divestiture, we reduced our short-term borrowings by $39 million.”

First Quarter Highlights

Famous Footwear first quarter 2013 sales of $352.3 million were up 1.5% year-over-year, with good growth in athletic and canvas shoe styles as the quarter progressed. Same-store-sales(2) were up 1.1% over the prior year, as strong same-store-sales of 14.2% in April helped offset weather related weakness in February and March. During the quarter, the company closed or relocated 13 stores and added 12 new stores, as average revenue per square foot continued to improve.

Wholesale sales were down 2.9% in the first quarter, excluding discontinued and exited brands. The company’s Contemporary Fashion wholesale sales were down 2.5% in the first quarter, while Healthy Living wholesale sales were down 3.1%, both excluding exited brands. Wholesale gross margin of 31.8% expanded by 310 basis points during the quarter. Both the Contemporary Fashion and Healthy Living platforms contributed to the improvement, due to a more profitable brand mix, higher initial margins and lower inventory markdown requirements.

Consolidated gross profit of $240.0 million was up 2.5% in the first quarter, while gross margin of 40.8% improved by approximately 160 basis points versus the prior year. SG&A for the first quarter was $213.8 million, or 36.3% of net sales, up approximately 90 basis points from 35.4% of net sales in the prior year. For the quarter, operating margins improved 150 basis points to 3.6%.

Inventory at the end of the first quarter was $485.9 million, up 2.2% compared to $475.6 million in the prior year. Wholesale inventory was up 2.4%, while Famous Footwear inventory was up 1.3%.

At quarter-end, Brown Shoe Company had $413.8 million in availability under its revolving credit facility and $44.7 million in cash and cash equivalents. The company’s debt-to-capital ratio improved to 39.1% from 43.9% in the first quarter of 2012.

Financial Review and 2013 Outlook

“Despite uncooperative weather in February and March, we were able to deliver better than expected results for the quarter,” said Russ Hammer, chief financial officer of Brown Shoe Company. “To reflect our strong performance in the first quarter, we are raising our full-year adjusted EPS guidance to $1.22 to $1.29. However, due to the timing of back-to-school, our biggest sales quarter remains the third quarter.”

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, the company’s financial results are provided both in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and using certain non-GAAP financial measures. In particular, the company provides historic and estimated future gross profit, operating earnings, net earnings and earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain gains, charges and recoveries, which are non-GAAP financial measures. These results are included as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP because management believes these non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in the company’s business and provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the company’s core operating results. These measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. Reconciliations to the applicable GAAP financial measures have been included in the attached schedules.

(2) Same-Stores-Sales

For comparability purposes, same-store-sales for the first quarter of 2013 is calculated based on retail sales for weeks 1 through 13 in 2013 as compared to weeks 2 through 14 in 2012. This adjustment is due to the impact of the 53rd week of sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. The calculation for the first quarter of 2013 appropriately reflects the change in same-store-sales on a true retail calendar basis.
