FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Men's Wearhouse (NYSE: MW) today announced consolidated financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended October 31, 2015.

GAAP loss per share for fiscal third quarter 2015 was $0.56.  During the quarter, due to the decrease in the Jos. A. Bank sales, the Company performed an interim valuation of the Jos. A. Bank tradename which resulted in a $90.1 million non-cash impairment charge. 

Fiscal third quarter 2015 adjusted EPS was $0.50 excluding non-operating items and non-cash impairment charges. 

As reported in the Company's preliminary results release on November 5, 2015, third quarter comparable sales increased 5.3% at Men's Wearhouse with clothing comps of 7.2% driven by higher transactions per store and rental comps of 0.7%.  K&G comparable sales for the quarter increased 3.7% driven by higher transactions per store.  Moores comparable sales decreased 5.4% primarily driven by weakening macro-economic conditions in Canada.  Comparable sales decreased 14.6% at Jos. A. Bank, far below our earlier expectations, primarily driven by a decline in traffic. 

Overall adjusted margin was down driven by the clearance of merchandise through the e-commerce channel, primarily at our Men's Wearhouse brand.  Excluding e-commerce product sales, Men's Wearhouse retail clothing margin was flat.  Jos. A. Bank clothing margin was up over last year.  Synergies remain on target with $13 million realized in the third quarter. 

Through the first week of December, the quarter-to-date comparable sales at Jos. A. Bank were down 35.1% while our other brands average comparable sales were up 5.5%.  If the Jos. A. Bank trend continues through the remainder of the quarter, the Company runs the risk of missing the lower end of the guidance given on November 5, 2015.  The Jos. A. Bank clothing margin before occupancy is still expected to be up approximately 500 basis points.  The Company will be providing an update on the quarter in early February.

While the Company has already made its scheduled fourth quarter principal payment of $1.75 million on its term loan, it does not anticipate making any additional debt principal payments during the period.

The Company will discuss future guidance including possible voluntary debt repayments when it reports fiscal 2015 results in March.  Management is currently updating its comprehensive long-term plan to embed additional strategic initiatives including revenue enhancement strategies, cost reduction initiatives, store rationalization and the Tuxedo Shops @ Macy's rollout.

Doug Ewert, Men's Wearhouse chief executive officer stated, "When we acquired Joseph Bank, we knew that we needed to correct the promotional model. However, we underestimated the impact to the near-term performance as we began to execute the difficult, but necessary, corrective steps.  We remain confident that these steps will restore a long-term, sustainable, profit model and reshape the business for a healthy and growing Jos. A. Bank.

"Beyond promotions, we have taken several other significant steps to grow revenue opportunities at Jos. A. Bank by re-engaging with current and lapsed customers while attracting new ones.  We have introduced a new loyalty program, we are recalibrating our marketing strategy and have introduced a new incentive program that aligns with the new selling techniques.  Additionally, we are enhancing the assortment to better service our core customers and to give new customers a compelling reason to discover Jos. A. Bank. 

"We are also taking additional steps to course correct.  We are currently performing a deep dive on data analysis using both our customer data and a third party to uncover actionable insights.  With the topline resetting to a lower level for the near-term, we are looking at every opportunity for cost reduction including store rationalization, labor, advertising and all relevant shared service costs and we are partnering with Alix Partners on specific elements of this work.  We are challenging all assumptions and are fully focused on accelerating the Jos. A. Bank recovery."

Ewert added, "We have built a portfolio of robust and compelling brands, each renowned for their own individual identity.  Next year, we will launch a holding company called Tailored Brands.  We believe that the holding company structure will allow us to further leverage our shared services platform and support, nurture and augment our family of brands."

Ewert concluded, "We are working hard to become an innovative and differentiated retailer in men's apparel, from our stores to our digital properties, from our customers' visits to our tailors and stylists, to their phones and their homes.  We look forward to sharing more with you in the near future about this and our other initiatives to create value for all our stakeholders."

THIRD QUARTER SALES REVIEW

The table that follows is a summary of net sales for the third quarter and year-to-date period ended October 31, 2015.  The dollars shown are U.S. dollars in millions and, due to rounded numbers, may not sum.  The Moores comparable sales change is based on the Canadian dollar.  The comparable year-to-date sales shown below for Jos. A. Bank are a comparison to the Jos. A. Bank year-to-date, a portion of which was prior to the acquisition on June 18, 2014.

Net sales at our largest brand, Men's Wearhouse, were up 6.7% and comparable sales increased 5.3% from last year's third quarter.  Comparable clothing sales increased 7.2% primarily due to an increase in average transactions per store. Comparable rental revenue increased 0.7% in the third quarter of 2015. 

Jos. A. Bank comparable sales for the third quarter decreased 14.6% due primarily to a decrease in average transactions per store as the Company began the transition away from the Buy-One-Get-Three Free promotional events.  K&G comparable sales increased 3.7% primarily due to an increase in average transactions per store.  Net sales for Moores, our Canadian retail brand, decreased 18.7% due to unfavorable currency fluctuations. Moores had a comparable sales decrease of 5.4% due to decreases in both average transactions per store and units sold per transaction driven by weakening macro-economic conditions in Canada.  The Corporate Apparel segment had an expected sales decrease of 10.4% primarily driven by an unfavorable change in the currency translation rate and lower sales from existing customer programs.

THIRD QUARTER GAAP RESULTS

Total net sales decreased 2.8%, or $25.2 million, to $865.4 million.  Retail segment net sales decreased by 2.2%, or $17.8 million.  Corporate apparel sales decreased by 10.4% or $7.4 million.

Total gross margin was $373.0 million, an increase of $3.8 million, or 1.0%.  As a percent of sales, total gross margin increased 164 basis points to 43.1% of net sales.

Advertising expense increased $5.9 million to $48.0 million.  This increase represented an 82 basis point increase in expense. 

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") decreased $10.7 million to $271.3 million, a 31 basis point decrease.

During the quarter, we concluded a triggering event occurred that required an interim impairment test of the Jos. A. Bank tradename and goodwill.  Our interim tradename impairment test concluded that the tradename was impaired and a non-cash charge of $90.1 million was recorded.  Our interim goodwill impairment test concluded that our goodwill was not impaired as we have implemented several strategies expected to offset the decline in revenues and result in a stable profit and cash flow model over the long-term.  However, if we determine we are not likely to meet the projections used in our interim impairment tests or if our market capitalization remains at current levels, it is possible our annual impairment tests in the fourth quarter of 2015 could result in a material impairment of the Jos. A. Bank goodwill and/or tradename.  

Operating loss for the quarter was $36.4 million compared to operating income of $45.2 million last year.

Net interest expense for the third quarter was $26.4 million.

The effective tax rate for the third quarter was 56.8%. 

The net loss for the quarter was $27.2 million compared to net earnings of $6.8 million last year.  The diluted loss per share was $0.56 compared to diluted EPS of $0.14 in the prior year quarter.  

NINE MONTH GAAP RESULTS

Total net sales increased 14.9%, or $346.4 million, to $2,670.6 million.  Retail segment net sales increased by 16.7%, or $355.3 million.  Corporate apparel sales decreased by 4.6% or $8.9 million.

Total gross margin was $1,173.2 million, an increase of $162.1 million, or 16.0%.  As a percent of sales, total gross margin increased 43 basis points to 43.9% of net sales.

Advertising expense increased $34.6 million to $143.6 million.  This increase represented a 69 basis point increase in expense. 

SG&A increased $35.6 million to $822.5 million, a 306 basis point decrease.

Non-cash tradename impairment charge was $90.1 million.

Operating income increased $1.9 million to $117.0 million, representing 4.4% of net sales compared to 5.0% in the prior year.

Net interest expense for the nine months was $79.3 million.  Loss on extinguishment of debt was $12.7 million.  The loss was a result of the $400 million partial refinancing of our term loan to a fixed rate of 5.0%.

The effective tax rate for the nine months was (24.0%). 

Net earnings for the nine months were $31.0 million compared to $35.5 million last year.  Diluted EPS was $0.64 compared to $0.74 in the prior year nine months.

Total net sales decreased 2.8%, or $25.2 million.  Retail segment net sales for the quarter decreased by 2.2% or $17.8 million due primarily to a decrease in clothing sales at Jos. A. Bank.  Corporate apparel sales decreased by 10.4%, or $7.4 million.

Total gross margin decreased $17.1 million or 70 basis points.  Retail gross margin decreased $13.0 million primarily due to lower sales and 62 basis points primarily due to a lower retail clothing margin rate and slight occupancy deleverage offset somewhat by higher rental and alteration margin rates.  As expected, corporate apparel gross margin decreased $4.1 million or 280 basis points primarily due to unfavorable currency impacts and customer mix.

On a stand-alone basis, Jos. A. Bank total retail gross margin increased 94 basis points from 36.9% to 37.9% primarily due to an increase in retail clothing margin somewhat offset by occupancy cost deleverage.  Retail clothing margin increased 211 basis points from 55.6% to 57.7% due mostly to an increase in the average unit retail and some cost synergies.  

Excluding Jos. A. Bank, total gross margin decreased by 158 basis points while retail gross margin decreased 168 basis points primarily driven by the clearance of merchandise through the e-commerce channel.  Excluding e-commerce product sales, retail clothing margin was flat. 

Advertising expense was $48.0 million.  This represents a planned increase of $5.9 million or 82 basis points, compared to the prior year. 

SG&A expenses increased $1.7 million primarily due to higher store salaries at Men's Wearhouse due to higher sales and higher payroll benefit costs somewhat offset by cost synergies and lower non-store incentive compensation.  Due to the decrease in sales, SG&A deleverage was 105 basis points.

Operating income decreased $24.7 million or 28.8%.

The effective tax rate was 30.2%. 

Net earnings were $24.1 million, or $0.50 adjusted EPS.

BALANCE SHEET

Inventories decreased $22.1 million to $1,060.2 million at the end of the third quarter 2015 from $1,082.4 million at prior year third quarter due primarily to purchase price accounting related adjustments at Jos. A. Bank in the prior year and lower inventory at K&G primarily due to fewer stores than in the prior year.

Capital expenditures through the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 were $86.4 million compared to $72.4 million in the prior year.

THE MEN'S WEARHOUSE, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES 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 fiscal third quarter and nine months of 2015 and a historical consolidated baseline for fiscal third quarter and nine months of 2014 which includes Jos. A. Bank results.  This non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of the Company's financial performance.  Specifically, we believe the adjusted and baseline results provide useful information by excluding items we believe are not indicative of our core operating results as well as certain items related to the acquisition and integration of Jos. A. Bank. 

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.  A reconciliation of this non-GAAP information to our actual results follows and may not sum due to rounded numbers.
