WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., August 11, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HanesBrands Inc. (NYSE: HBI), a global leader in iconic apparel brands, today announced results for the second quarter of 2022.

"Our second quarter results fell below our expectations as a result of unexpected events and the difficult global operating environment," said Steve Bratspies, CEO, HanesBrands. "Despite the challenges, we continue to make progress on our Full Potential plan. We are in the early stages of our strategic supply chain initiatives. Our innovation pipeline is more robust than it has been in years, and we continue to invest in building our global brands. I want to thank our associates around the globe for their ongoing commitment to serving our consumers and customers."

Second-Quarter Highlights

  • Robust pipeline of new products and innovations that extends beyond 2023. Rollout of new innerwear products and innovation is driving positive consumer and retailer response as well as additional retail space gains. New products have launched across men’s and women’s, including Hanes Total Support Pouch with X-Temp and Hanes Retro Rib. The Company is also building global innovation platforms around absorbency, which represents a meaningful opportunity for the Bonds and Hanes brands across multiple new usage occasions.

  • Champion brand investments continued in the quarter. The Company purchased the Champion trademark for footwear in North America, representing an expanded opportunity for the brand. The purchase gives the Company greater control of the global Champion brand and products. In addition, the Company will be able to deliver head-to-toe offerings across geographies through greater global coordination of design, product development and merchandising. The Company also continued to simplify its Champion distribution network in the U.S. to generate efficiencies and cost savings, improve service to its retail partners and support future growth.

  • Early stages of executing Full Potential supply chain strategies to build on its advantaged position as well as to balance speed, cost and flexibility, enabling faster top-line growth and higher margins. These efforts involve segmenting its supply chain and previously mentioned plans to optimize its U.S. distribution network. In addition to consolidation in the Champion distribution network in the U.S., the Company began direct shipping innerwear product from its Central American manufacturing facilities to certain wholesale customers. The Company’s West Coast distribution center, which will support its DTC business, is on-track to open this month. The Company is also adding automation to several distribution centers to improve picking and sorting speeds while lowering costs.

Second-Quarter 2022 Results

  • Net sales from continuing operations of $1.51 billion decreased $238 million, or 14%, over prior year. The lower-than-expected sales performance was driven by the impact from the previously announced ransomware attack (also referred to in this release as "cyber event") as well as softer-than-expected point-of-sale trends. Adjusting for the $38 million unfavorable impact from foreign exchange rates, net sales decreased 11% on a constant currency basis.

    • Net sales, excluding PPE, increased 75% on a two-year stack basis.

    • Global Champion brand sales decreased 20% over prior year in constant currency, or 23% on a reported basis with similar declines in both the U.S. and internationally. On a two-year stack basis, constant-currency Champion brand sales increased 96% globally.

  • Gross Profit of $572 million declined 16% as compared to prior year. Gross margin was 37.8%, down from 38.9% in the prior year. Adjusted Gross Profit, which excludes certain costs related to the Company’s Full Potential plan, was $573 million compared to $684 million last year. Adjusted Gross Margin of 37.8% declined approximately 120 basis points compared to prior year. The margin decline was driven by impact from lower sales volume, input cost inflation, the incremental costs associated with the cyber event and foreign currency exchange rates. These headwinds more than offset the benefits from business mix, the first-quarter price increase in its Innerwear business, cost savings and less air freight.

  • Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses were $425 million as compared to $464 million in the second quarter last year. Adjusted SG&A expenses, which exclude certain costs related to its Full Potential plan, were $419 million compared to $447 million last year. As a percent of net sales, adjusted SG&A expense of 27.7% increased approximately 215 basis points compared to prior year. The year-over-year deleverage in SG&A was driven by lower sales volume and planned increased investments in brand marketing and technology, which more than offset cost controls and expense efficiencies from Full Potential initiatives in the quarter.

  • Operating Profit and Operating Margin in the second quarter of 2022 were $147 million and 9.7%, respectively, which compared to $217 million and 12.4%, respectively, in the prior year. Adjusted Operating Profit of $154 million declined $82 million as compared to the second quarter 2021. Adjusted Operating Margin of 10.2% declined approximately 335 basis points over prior year.

  • The GAAP and Adjusted Effective Tax Rates for second-quarter 2022 were both 17.0%. For the second quarter of 2021, GAAP and adjusted effective tax rates were 14.6% and 14.2%, respectively.

  • Income from continuing operations totaled $93 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. This compares to income from continuing operations of $148 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, last year. Adjusted income from continuing operations totaled $98 million, or $0.28 per diluted share. This compares to adjusted income from continuing operations of $165 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in second-quarter 2021.

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 Full Potential plan charges.

Second-Quarter 2022 Business Segment Summary

  • Innerwear sales decreased 12% compared to last year as the impact from the cyber event and softer-than-expected point-of-sale trends more than offset the benefits from the first-quarter price increase and retail space gains. On a two-year stack basis, Innerwear sales increased 50% in the quarter. Operating margin of 20.7% decreased approximately 320 basis points compared to prior year. The impact from input cost inflation, lower sales volume, and an unfavorable product mix more than offset the benefit from higher prices and SG&A cost controls.

  • Activewear sales declined 18% over prior year. The Company experienced continued growth in the collegiate channel in the quarter, which was more than offset by declines in its other channels due to headwinds from point-of-sales trends, retailer inventory levels and the impact from the cyber event. By brand, Champion sales within the Activewear reporting segment decreased 25% as compared to prior year and increased more than 115% on a two-year stack basis. Sales of other activewear brands within the Activewear reporting segment decreased 8% over prior year in the quarter and increased approximately 130% on a two-year stack basis.

Operating margin for the segment of 6.9% decreased approximately 325 basis points compared to prior period as lower volume, increased brand investments and an unfavorable product mix more than offset the benefits from SG&A cost controls.

  • International sales, on a constant currency basis, decreased 3% compared to prior year. Sales declined at a low-single digit rate in Europe and Australia, which more than offset growth in the Americas. Constant currency sales in Asia were consistent with prior year. Including the $38 million impact from unfavorable foreign exchange rates, International sales decreased 11% on a reported basis.

Operating margin for the segment of 13.2% increased approximately 25 basis points over prior year driven by SG&A cost controls.

Cash Flow, Balance Sheet and Stockholder Capital Returns

  • Total liquidity position at the end of second-quarter 2022 was nearly $1.0 billion, consisting of $248 million of cash and equivalents and approximately $720 million of available capacity under its credit facilities.

  • Based on the calculation as defined in the Company’s senior secured credit facility, the Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio at the end of second-quarter 2022 was 3.5 times on a net debt-to-adjusted EBITDA basis as compared to 2.9 times at the end of second-quarter 2021 (See Table 6-C).

  • Inventory at the end of second-quarter 2022 was $2.09 billion, an increase of 37% over prior year. The increase was driven predominantly by higher inflation on input and transportation costs, lower sales, and the early arrival of product related to third-quarter commitments. Inflation alone represented essentially half of the year-over-year increase. The Company is confident in the quality of its inventory as approximately 80% of the year-over-year increase is in replenishment innerwear categories. On a unit basis, inventory increased 19% over prior year. Through various mitigation initiatives that have been put in place, the Company expects to end 2022 with lower units in inventory as compared to year-end 2021.

  • Cash flow from operations was a use of $210 million in the second-quarter 2022 driven primarily by the working capital impact from higher inventory.

  • The Company’s Board of Directors declared a regular cash dividend of $0.15 per share to be paid on September 14, 2022 to stockholders of record on the close of business August 24, 2022. The declared dividend represents the Company’s 38th consecutive quarterly return of cash to stockholders. The Company did not repurchase any shares in the second quarter and has approximately $575 million remaining under its current repurchase authorization.

Update on Cyber Event in Late May

Second quarter results were impacted by the previously disclosed cyber event, which temporarily affected the Company’s global supply chain network and limited its ability to fulfill customer orders for approximately three weeks. Despite the disruption, the Company shipped all Innerwear back-to-school seasonal commitments on time and in full.

At this time, the Company believes the cyber event has been contained. There is no ongoing operational impact on the Company’s ability to provide its products and services. The Company estimates the cyber event negatively impacted the second-quarter 2022 results by approximately $100 million in net sales, $35 million dollars in adjusted operating profit, and $0.08 in adjusted earnings per share.

Third Quarter and Full-Year 2022 Financial Outlook

The Company has taken a more prudent view of its second-half net sales and profit outlook to reflect the changes in foreign currency exchange rates; short-term costs associated with actions to reduce inventory by year-end; and an assumption that slow consumer demand continues and the retail environment remains challenging.

For third-quarter 2022, which ends on October 1, 2022, the Company currently expects:

  • Net sales from continuing operations of approximately $1.73 billion to $1.78 billion, which includes a projected headwind of approximately $58 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. At the midpoint, this represents 1% growth over prior year on a constant currency basis, or a 2% decline on a reported basis.

  • GAAP operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $129 million to $149 million.

  • Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $160 million to $180 million and includes a projected headwind of approximately $8 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

  • Charges for actions related to Full Potential of approximately $31 million.

  • Interest and other expenses of approximately $44 million.

  • An effective tax rate of approximately 17% on both a GAAP and adjusted basis.

  • GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations to range from approximately $0.20 to $0.25.

  • Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to range from approximately $0.27 to $0.32.

  • Fully diluted shares outstanding of approximately 350 million.

  • Earnings per share and fully diluted share count guidance exclude any potential impact from future share repurchases.

For fiscal-year 2022, which ends on December 31, 2022, the Company currently expects:

  • Net sales from continuing operations of approximately $6.45 billion to $6.55 billion, which includes a projected headwind of approximately $165 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. At the midpoint, this represents an approximate 2% decline as compared to prior year on a constant currency basis and a 4% decline on a reported basis.

  • GAAP operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $570 million to $620 million.

  • Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations to range from approximately $630 million to $680 million, which includes a projected headwind of approximately $22 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

  • Charges for actions related to Full Potential of approximately $60 million.

  • Interest and other expenses of approximately $161 million.

  • An effective tax rate of approximately 17% on both a GAAP and adjusted basis.

  • GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations to range from approximately $0.97 to $1.09

  • Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to range from approximately $1.11 to $1.23.

  • Cash flow from operations of essentially break-even.

  • Capital expenditures of approximately $150 million to $175 million.

  • Fully diluted shares outstanding of approximately 351 million.

  • Earnings per share and fully diluted share count guidance exclude any potential impact from future share repurchases.

HanesBrands has updated its quarterly frequently-asked-questions document, which is available at www.Hanes.com/FAQ.

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, adjusted EBITDA and leverage ratio.

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 2022 and 2021 include professional fees, operating model charges, (gain)/loss on classification of assets held for sale, supply chain segmentation charges, technology charges and intangible asset impairment charges related to our Full Potential plan.

While these costs 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.

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. 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 other losses, charges and expenses as defined in the Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio under its Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated November 19, 2021. 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.

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.
