GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.47 for the third quarter ended October 30, 2010.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.57 after excluding $1.4 million ($1.1 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share outstanding) in acquisition transaction and integration expenses, $2.0 million ($1.5 million after tax or $0.03 per diluted share outstanding) in tuxedo distribution closure costs and $3.2 million ($2.4 million after tax or $0.05 per diluted share outstanding) for non-cash asset impairment charges.  This compares to adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance given September 8, 2010 of $0.40 to $0.47.  

During the third quarter of 2010, the Company changed the inventory valuation method used by its K&G brand from lower of cost or market, as determined by the retail inventory method, to lower of cost or market using the weighted average cost method.  This change was done to bring all retail operations of the Company to a common valuation methodology platform.  All financial statements in this press release have been revised to reflect this change and are therefore comparable.  Prior year third quarter revised GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.36, a decrease of $0.01 per share.

THIRD Quarter REVIEW

Dimensions and Alexandra Acquisitions

On August 6, 2010, the Company acquired Dimensions and certain assets of Alexandra, two leading providers of corporate clothing uniforms and workwear in the United Kingdom, for total cash consideration of approximately pounds Sterling 61 million (US$97.8 million).  The combined businesses are organized under a UK-based holding company of which Men's Wearhouse controls 86% and certain existing shareholders of Dimensions control 14%.

The financial results of the combined UK operations, excluding transaction and integration costs, were $0.03 accretive to the Company's third quarter diluted earnings per share.  Transaction and integration costs were $1.4 million ($1.1 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share outstanding).  Total sales of the combined operations were US$51 million.  

Tuxedo Distribution Closures

In late August 2010, a decision was made by the Company to cease tuxedo distribution operations in November 2010 at four of the eleven facilities that we currently use for tuxedo distribution.  The operations at these four facilities will be assumed by other tuxedo distribution facilities in our system allowing us to more effectively manage our tuxedo rental operations.  In the third quarter, a charge of $2.0 million ($1.5 million after tax or $0.03 per diluted share outstanding) was incurred consisting primarily of severance payments and fixed asset write-offs.

The expected ongoing annual benefit, beginning in fiscal 2011, as a result of these closures will be a reduction in operating costs of approximately $4.0 million.

Review of Results

Total Company sales increased 19.1% for the quarter.  

  • Retail segment net sales increased $36.3 million, or 7.9%, to $494.6 million for the quarter ended October 30, 2010 as compared to the same prior year quarter.  The increase was due mainly to a $20.1 million increase in clothing product revenues and a $13.6 million increase in tuxedo rental service revenue:
    • The increase of 9.6% in comparable store sales at Men's Wearhouse/Men's Wearhouse and Tux and 5.6% at Moores was due mainly to continued unit growth in our tuxedo rental services business, increased units per transaction and higher store traffic levels, which more than offset a decrease in the average transaction value.  At K&G, the decrease of 0.2% in comparable store sales was due mainly to a decrease in the average transaction value.
    • Tuxedo rental service revenues as a percentage of total retail segment net sales increased from 21.3% in the third quarter of 2009 to 22.5% in the third quarter of 2010.  In absolute dollars, tuxedo rental service revenues increased $13.6 million or 13.9% due mainly to a 14.6% increase in paid units rented, offset partially by lower average rental rates in the U.S.
  • Corporate apparel segment net sales increased $51.8 million to $55.5 million for the quarter ended October 30, 2010 as compared to the same prior year quarter.  The increase was due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra in the UK on August 6, 2010.

Gross margin, as a percentage of total net sales, decreased 101 basis points from 43.7% to 42.7% due primarily to more aggressive promotional offerings in 2010 compared to 2009 and the increased mix of the lower margin corporate apparel business.  

  • In the retail segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales increased from 43.9% in the third quarter of 2009 to 44.5% in the third quarter of 2010 primarily due to improved tuxedo rental margins and a decrease in occupancy costs.  As a percentage of retail segment sales, occupancy costs decreased by 185 basis points from 15.8% to 13.9% primarily due to fewer open stores in 2010 and reduced depreciation following impairment charges taken in the fourth quarter of 2009.  These improvements were partially offset by a decrease in clothing margin due primarily to more aggressive promotional offerings in the current year.  As a percentage of related sales, clothing margin decreased 265 basis points from 56.0% to 53.4%.  
  • In the corporate apparel segment, total gross margin as a percentage of related sales increased from 22.6% in the third quarter of 2009 to 26.5% in the third quarter of 2010 due to our acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra in the UK on August 6, 2010.  

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $200.6 million in the current year and increased 16.2% from the prior year's SG&A of $172.6 million.  During the current quarter, the Company incurred $1.4 million in acquisition transaction and integration costs, $2.0 million in tuxedo distribution closure costs and $3.2 million for non-cash asset impairment charges related to 40 Men's Wearhouse and Tux stores, some of which were partially impaired in the prior year.  Excluding these costs, third quarter SG&A expenses were $194.0 million or an increase of 12.4% to the prior year quarter.  SG&A related to the acquired UK operations resulted in a 6.6% increase.  The remaining 5.8% increase is primarily due to increased marketing costs and increased employee benefit costs.  As a percentage of total net sales, adjusted SG&A decreased 210 basis points from 37.4% to 35.3%.  

Operating income was $34.4 million.  Excluding $1.4 million in acquisition and integration costs, $2.0 million in tuxedo distribution closure costs and $3.2 million in non-cash asset impairment charges, operating income was $41.0 million or 7.5% of total net sales compared to operating income of $29.4 million or 6.4% of total net sales for the same period last year.

The effective income tax rate was 25.7% for the third quarter of 2010 and 34.5% for the third quarter of 2009.  The effective tax rate in 2010 was lower than the statutory U.S. federal rate of 35% due to the favorable tax rate effects from release of valuation allowances related to foreign tax credit carryforwards and recognition of previously unrecognized tax benefits and related accrued interest from expirations of statutes of limitations, offset partially by the effect of state income taxes.  

Cash and cash equivalent balances as of the end of the third quarter of 2010 were $197.8 million.

Total inventories of $509.4 million increased 6.9% from the prior year third quarter of $476.8 million.  Excluding the inventory related to the acquisitions of Dimensions and Alexandra in the UK, inventories decreased 6.6%.  

Current maturities of long-term debt were $45.6 million as of the end of the third quarter of 2010.

FOURTH QUARTER 2010 GUIDANCE

For the fourth quarter of the fiscal year, GAAP loss per share is expected to be in a range of $0.22 to $0.25.  Adjusted loss per share is expected to be in a range of $0.19 to $0.22.  Adjusted loss per share excludes acquisition transaction costs and integration expenses of $1.7 million ($1.1 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share outstanding) and $1.0 million ($0.7 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share outstanding) in tuxedo distribution closure costs consisting primarily of severance payments, fixed asset write-offs, facility remediation and labor costs associated with processing the inventory from the closed facilities.

SG&A costs in this year's fourth quarter will also include notable increases compared to the prior year's fourth quarter for both employee bonuses related to higher than planned full year financial performance and increased medical benefit costs due to a higher level of submitted claims.  We estimate these higher costs will increase this year's fourth quarter loss in a magnitude of the equivalent of 10 cents per share.

The financial results of the combined UK acquisitions, excluding acquisition transaction costs and integration expenses, are expected to be neutral to the Company's fourth quarter diluted earnings per share.

  1. Includes US$51 million to US$53 million of sales from acquired operations of Dimensions and Alexandra in the 4Q of FY 2010.
  2. Includes an assumed increase in tuxedo rental revenues of + low double digits in the 4Q of FY 2010 compared to the prior year quarter decrease of 0.6%.
  3. Occupancy costs are expected to decrease in the low single digit range in the 4Q of FY 2010 from the prior year quarter.  
  4. Excludes $8.8 million pretax gain from an eminent domain sale of a distribution center in 4Q 2008.  Also excludes $1.8 million and $19.5 million in impairment charges in the 4Q 2008 and 4Q 2009, respectively.
  5. Excludes acquisition transaction and integration costs and costs associated with the closure of four tuxedo distribution centers in the 4Q of FY 2010.  Also excludes $19.5 million in impairment charges in the 4Q of FY 2009.  In the 4Q of FY 2010, SG&A expense is expected to increase a) in the high single digit range related to the Company's acquired UK operations, b) in the mid single digit range related to employee medical costs from a higher level of claims and employee bonus costs due to exceeding full year financial targets and c) in the high single digit range primarily due to increased marketing and payroll related costs.
  6. The higher effective tax rate in 4Q of FY 2009 is primarily due to a true up the Company's annual tax provision as a result of the non-cash impairment charge taken in 4Q of FY 2009.  The estimated impact on diluted earnings per share from this true up in 4Q of FY 2009 was a benefit of $0.04 per share in the prior year.
