HanesBrands Announces Strong Second-Quarter 2021 Results

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. , August 05 /Businesswire/ - HanesBrands Inc. (NYSE: HBI), a global leader in iconic apparel brands, today announced results for the second quarter of 2021, with increased sales, operating profit and cash flow driven by strong performance across its global innerwear and activewear businesses.

Net sales from continuing operations for the second quarter ended July 3, 2021, totaled $1.75 billion, an increase of $208 million, or 13%, compared with $1.54 billion for the quarter ended June 27, 2020, which included $614 million in sales of personal protective equipment (“PPE”) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Excluding PPE, net sales increased 88% over prior year. The growth was driven by strong point-of-sales trends, the overlap of last year’s COVID-related shutdowns and the benefit of transitory items such as government stimulus. Total constant currency second-quarter net sales increased 10%.

“Our iconic brands continue to resonate with consumers around the world, and I’m very encouraged by the progress on our Full Potential growth plan,” said Chief Executive Officer Steve Bratspies. “I’m extremely proud of the way our associates performed under challenging conditions, delivering sales, profit and earnings growth above our expectations and above the second quarter of both 2020 and 2019. We are seeing strong momentum across our business and have raised our outlook for the second half of the year.”

Due to the significant impact of the pandemic on prior year results, this release includes certain comparisons to the comparable 2019 periods for additional context. All 2019 results are rebased to reflect the European Innerwear business as discontinued operations as well as the exit of the C9 Champion mass program and the DKNY intimate apparel license.

Compared to second-quarter 2019, net sales from continuing operations increased $233 million, or 15%, and total constant currency net sales increased 14%. Double-digit growth in the global innerwear and activewear businesses was driven by strong point-of-sale performance as well as the benefit of several transitory items, including retailer inventory restocking, government stimulus and pent-up consumer demand.

For the second-quarter 2021, GAAP gross margin of 38.9% increased 560 basis points compared to prior year and 200 basis points compared to second-quarter 2019. Adjusted gross margin of 39.0% increased 450 basis points over last year and approximately 75 basis points over 2019. The expansion in both periods was driven by higher sales, product mix and the impact from foreign exchange rates, which more than offset higher expedite costs that resulted from stronger-than-expected demand.

Second-quarter GAAP operating profit increased 8% to $217 million compared to prior year and decreased 1% compared to second-quarter 2019. GAAP operating margin of 12.4% decreased 70 basis points and 100 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively. Adjusted operating profit of $236 million increased $2 million, or 1%, compared to prior year and $29 million, or 14% compared to 2019. Adjusted operating margin of 13.5% decreased 170 basis points compared to last year due to the overlap of last year’s PPE sales and temporary cost savings initiatives that were implemented to partially mitigate the impact of COVID-driven declines in apparel sales.

In the second quarter of 2020, the company implemented several temporary SG&A cost savings initiatives such as furloughs and salary reductions, which generated approximately 600 basis points of one-time operating margin benefit in the year-ago quarter. As compared to second-quarter 2019, adjusted operating margin decreased approximately 15 basis points as higher brand marketing investments essentially offset the fixed-cost leverage from higher sales.

The GAAP and adjusted effective tax rates for the second quarter were 14.6% and 14.2%, respectively, which compares to GAAP and adjusted effective tax rates of 12.7% and 14.1%, respectively, for the second quarter of 2020. For the second quarter of 2019, GAAP and adjusted effective tax rates were 9.4% and 9.0%, respectively.

On a GAAP basis, second-quarter income from continuing operations totaled $148 million, or $0.42 per diluted share. This compares to income from continuing operations of $137 million, or $0.39 per diluted share in the prior year period, and income from continuing operations of $150 million, or $0.41 per diluted share in second-quarter 2019.

Adjusted income from continuing operations totaled $165 million, or $0.47 per diluted share. This compares to adjusted income from continuing operations of $162 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, in the prior year period and adjusted income from continuing operations of $139 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in second-quarter 2019.

(See the Note on Adjusted Measures and Reconciliation to GAAP Measures later in this news release for additional discussion and details of actions, which include pandemic-related and Full Potential plan charges.)

Second-Quarter 2021 Business Segment Summaries

Innerwear (vs 2020). Sales decreased $314 million, or 29% due to the overlap of last year’s $614 million of PPE sales. Basics revenue increased 48% with double-digit growth in each product category while intimates revenue increased 150% with triple-digit growth in both bras and shapewear. Excluding PPE, Innerwear sales increased 62% over last year driven by strong point-of-sale growth, the overlap of last year’s COVID-related shutdowns as well as the benefit of several transitory items, including retailer inventory restocking, government stimulus and pent-up consumer demand. Operating margin of 23.8% decreased 400 basis points compared to prior year due to fixed-cost deleverage from lower sales, higher expedite costs from stronger-than-expected demand in basics and intimates as well as increased investments in brand marketing.

(vs 2019). Sales increased $123 million, or 19%, compared to second-quarter 2019, with comparable double-digit growth in both basics and intimates. The growth was driven by strong underlying point-of-sale growth, yielding approximately 160 basis points of market share gains, as well as the benefit of certain transitory items, such as retailer inventory restocking and government stimulus, which drove category growth rates above historical levels. Operating margin expanded 150 basis points to 23.8% driven by volume leverage and sales mix, which more than offset higher expedite costs and increased investments in brand marketing.

Activewear (vs 2020). Activewear sales grew $236 million, or 140% over prior year driven by growth in both the Champion and Hanes brands. The company experienced strong point-of-sale trends across several channels in the quarter. Sales also increased in the sports and college licensing business. The segment benefited from strong pent-up consumer demand as pandemic restrictions were lifted, as well as from government stimulus payments. Segment operating margin of 10.2% increased 1,360 basis points over prior period driven by fixed-cost leverage from higher sales, which more than offset higher brand marketing investment.

(vs 2019). Activewear revenue increased $53 million, or 15%, driven by growth across the online, wholesale and distributor channels, which more than offset lower sales in the sports and college licensing business. By brand, sales increased in both the Champion and Hanes brands in the quarter, with Champion sales in the segment up 20%. Activewear’s operating margin decreased approximately 290 basis points compared to second-quarter 2019 as leverage from higher sales volume was more than offset by higher expedite and distribution costs due to stronger-than-expected demand as well as increased investments in brand marketing.

International (vs 2020). International segment revenue increased $228 million, or 91%, compared to prior year. On a constant currency basis, sales increased 70% with strong growth in Australia, the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific driven by strong consumer demand and the overlap of last year’s COVID-related shutdowns. For the quarter, the International segment’s operating margin of 12.9% increased 1,090 basis points over prior year driven by higher sales, sales mix and foreign exchange rates.

(vs 2019). International segment revenue increased $48 million, or 11%, compared to second-quarter 2019. On a constant currency basis, sales increased 5%. Constant currency sales grew in Australia, Europe and the Americas while sales in Asia Pacific declined driven by ongoing COVID-related headwinds in Japan. For the quarter, the International segment’s operating margin decreased 250 basis points compared to second-quarter 2019 levels driven by increased brand marketing investments as well as de-leverage in Asia Pacific from lower sales.

Third-Quarter, Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2021 Financial Outlook

The following financial outlook is based on current market conditions and judgments of management and is subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially, many of which are further discussed in the company’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K available at www.sec.gov and in the investors section of the company’s website at www.Hanes.com/Investors.

For third-quarter 2021, which ends on October 2, 2021, the company currently expects:

  • Net sales from continuing operations of approximately $1.78 billion to $1.81 billion, which represents approximately 6% growth over prior year at the midpoint and includes a projected benefit of approximately $16 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. This compares to net sales of $1.69 billion in third-quarter 2020, which included $179 million in PPE sales.
  • Excluding PPE, net sales at the midpoint of the guidance range are expected to increase 19% over the prior year period.
  • As compared to rebased third-quarter 2019, net sales at the midpoint are expected to increase 11%.
  • GAAP operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $216 million to $226 million.
  • Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $235 million to $245 million. The midpoint of adjusted operating profit implies an operating margin of approximately 13.4% and reflects the impact of cost inflation as well as increased brand investment. This compares to an adjusted operating margin of 14.3% in the third-quarter of 2020, which benefited from temporary COVID-driven cost reductions.
  • Charges for actions related to Full Potential of approximately $19 million.
  • Interest and Other expenses of approximately $45 million.
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 12% on a GAAP basis and approximately 15% on an adjusted basis.
  • GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations to range from $0.42 to $0.45. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to range from $0.45 to $0.48.

For fourth-quarter 2021, which ends on January 1, 2022, the company currently expects:

  • Net sales from continuing operations of approximately $1.71 billion to $1.78 billion, which represents approximately 3% growth over prior year at the midpoint and includes a projected benefit of approximately $6 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. This compares to net sales of $1.69 billion in fourth-quarter 2020, which included $28 million in PPE sales and approximately $45 million from the 53rd week.
  • Adjusting for PPE and the 53rd week in 2020, net sales at the midpoint of the guidance range are expected to increase 8% over the prior year period.
  • As compared to rebased fourth-quarter 2019, net sales at the midpoint are expected to increase 15%.
  • GAAP operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $172 million to $192 million.
  • Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $200 million to $220 million. The midpoint of adjusted operating profit implies an operating margin of approximately 12.0% and reflects the impact of cost inflation as well as increased brand investment. This compares to an adjusted operating margin of 13.5% in the fourth-quarter of 2020.
  • Charges for actions related to Full Potential of approximately $28 million.
  • Interest and Other expenses of approximately $46 million.
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 15% on a GAAP and adjusted basis.
  • GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations to range from $0.29 to $0.34. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to range from $0.37 to $0.42.

For fiscal-year 2021, which ends on January 1, 2022, the company currently expects:

  • Net sales from continuing operations to total approximately $6.75 billion to $6.85 billion, which is $550 million above its prior range of $6.2 billion to $6.3 billion, and includes a projected benefit of approximately $116 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
  • At the midpoint, net sales guidance implies approximately 11% growth over prior year and 12% growth adjusted for the 53rd week in 2020. This compares to net sales of $6.13 billion in 2020, which included $820 million in sales of PPE and approximately $45 million from the 53rd week.
  • Adjusting for PPE and the 53rd week in 2020, net sales at the midpoint of the guidance range are expected to increase 29% over the prior year period.
  • As compared to rebased 2019, net sales at the midpoint are expected to increase 13%.
  • GAAP operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $795 million to $825 million, versus the prior range of $730 million to $760 million.
  • Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $880 million to $910 million, which is $65 million above its prior range of $815 million to $845 million. At the midpoint, adjusted operating profit guidance implies approximately 15% growth compared to prior year and 9% growth compared to 2019. The midpoint of adjusted operating profit guidance range suggests an operating margin of 13.2%.
  • Full-year outlook reflects higher levels of cost inflation as compared to 2020 and 2019. Incremental brand marketing investment of $50 million as compared to 2020.
  • Charges for actions related to Full Potential of approximately $85 million, which is unchanged from its prior outlook.
  • Interest and Other expenses of approximately $182 million.
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 13% on a GAAP basis and approximately 15% on an adjusted basis.
  • GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations to range from approximately $1.50 to $1.58.
  • Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to range from approximately $1.68 to $1.76, which compares to its prior outlook of $1.51 to $1.59.
  • Cash flow from operations of approximately $550 million, versus prior range of $500 million to $550 million.
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $100 million.

Note on Adjusted Measures and Reconciliation to GAAP Measures

To supplement financial results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, the company provides quarterly and full-year results concerning certain non‐GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EPS from continuing operations, adjusted income from continuing operations, adjusted income tax expense, adjusted income from continuing operations before income tax expense, adjusted operating profit (and margin), adjusted SG&A, adjusted gross profit (and margin), EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EPS from continuing operations is defined as diluted EPS from continuing operations excluding actions and the tax effect on actions. Adjusted income from continuing operations is defined as income from continuing operations excluding actions and the tax effect on actions. Adjusted income tax expense is defined as income tax expense excluding actions. Adjusted income from continuing operations before income tax is defined as income from continuing operations before income tax excluding actions. Adjusted operating profit is defined as operating profit excluding actions. Adjusted SG&A is defined as selling, general and administrative expenses excluding actions. Adjusted gross profit is defined as gross profit excluding actions.

Charges for actions taken in 2021 include professional fees and intangible asset impairment charges related to our Full Potential plan. While these costs are not operational in nature and are not expected to continue for any singular transaction on an ongoing basis, similar types of costs, expenses and charges have occurred in prior periods and may recur in future periods depending upon future business plans and circumstances.

Charges for actions taken in 2020 include supply chain restructuring actions, program exit costs, COVID-19 related charges, Full Potential plan charges and the write-off of a discrete tax asset related to our Bras N Things acquisition. COVID-19 related charges include intangible asset and goodwill impairment charges, bad debt expense and supply chain re-startup costs. Full Potential plan charges for 2020 include inventory write-down charges related to our SKU reduction initiative and discontinuation of our PPE business.

Charges for actions taken in 2019 primarily represented supply chain network changes, program exit costs, and overhead reduction as well as completion of outstanding acquisition integration.

HanesBrands has chosen to present these non‐GAAP measures to investors to enable additional analyses of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means of evaluating operations absent the effect of the Full Potential plan and other actions, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. HanesBrands believes these non-GAAP measures provide management and investors with valuable supplemental information for analyzing the operating performance of the company’s ongoing business during each period presented without giving effect to costs associated with the execution of any of the aforementioned actions taken.

The company has also chosen to present EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to investors because it considers these measures to be an important supplemental means of evaluating operating performance. EBITDA is defined as income from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding actions and stock compensation expense. HanesBrands believes that EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in the industry, and management uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes in connection with setting its capital allocation strategy. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not, however, be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to invest in the growth of the business.

In addition, the company has chosen to present certain year-over-year comparisons with respect to the company’s rebased 2019 business, which excludes the exited C9 Champion program and DKNY license. HanesBrands believes this information is useful to management and investors to facilitate a more meaningful comparison of the results of the company’s ongoing business.

HanesBrands is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. As a supplement to the company’s reported operating results, HanesBrands also presents constant-currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. The company uses constant-currency information to provide a framework to assess how the business performed excluding the effects of changes in the rates used to calculate foreign currency translation.

To calculate foreign currency translation on a constant currency basis, operating results for the current-year period for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the comparable period of the prior year (rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current year period).

HanesBrands believes constant-currency information is useful to management and investors to facilitate comparison of operating results and better identify trends in the company’s businesses.

Non‐GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for, financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP measures presented may be different from non-GAAP measures with similar or identical names presented by other companies.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this news release.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains certain forward-looking statements, as defined under U.S. federal securities laws, with respect to our long-term goals and trends associated with our business, as well as guidance as to future performance. In particular, among others, statements regarding the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and financial performance; guidance and predictions regarding expected operating results, including related to our Full Potential plan; and statements made in the Third Quarter and Full-year 2021 Financial Outlook section of this news release, are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on our current intent, beliefs, plans and expectations. Readers are cautioned not to place any undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements necessarily involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of our control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements and from our historical results and experience. These risks and uncertainties include such things as: our ability to successfully executive our Full Potential plan to achieve the desired results; the potential effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including on consumer spending, global supply chains and the financial markets; the highly competitive and evolving nature of the industry in which we compete; the rapidly changing retail environment; our reliance on a relatively small number of customers for a significant portion of our sales; any inadequacy, interruption, integration failure or security failure with respect to our information technology; the impact of significant fluctuations and volatility in various input costs, such as cotton and oil-related materials, utilities, freight and wages; our ability to attract and retain a senior management team with the core competencies needed to support growth in global markets; significant fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; legal, regulatory, political and economic risks related to our international operations; our ability to effectively manage our complex multinational tax structure; and other risks identified from time to time in our most recent Securities and Exchange Commission reports, including our annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. Since it is not possible to predict or identify all of the risks, uncertainties and other factors that may affect future results, the above list should not be considered a complete list. Any forward- looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and HanesBrands undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, other than as required by law.
