Men's Wearhouse Reports Fiscal 2012 Third Quarter Results

- Q3 2012 GAAP diluted earnings per share grew 20% to $0.95 versus last year's comparable adjusted third quarter earnings per share

HOUSTON, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Men's Wearhouse (NYSE: MW) today announced its consolidated financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended October 27, 2012 and will file its Form 10-Q tomorrow morning, December 6, 2012.

Comparable diluted earnings per share rose 20% over last year's third quarter and were within the $0.95 to $0.98 guidance range given on September 5, 2012.  

Net earnings for the 2012 fiscal third quarter was $48.8 million, or $0.95 diluted earnings per share, compared to net earnings of $39.9 million, or $0.77 diluted earnings per share, in the same period in 2011. Last year's third quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.79 after excluding $1.0 million ($0.7 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share) in acquisition related integration costs and $0.7 million ($0.5 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share) for a non-cash asset impairment charge. 

Total net sales for the fiscal 2012 third quarter increased 7.9% to $631.0 million from $584.6 million for the same period a year ago.  Retail segment sales increased by 7.7% or $40.2 million and corporate apparel sales increased by 10.1% or $6.1 million

Doug Ewert, Men's Wearhouse president and chief executive officer, stated, "Sales at our flagship brand Men's Wearhouse stores, which represented 65% of our total third quarter sales, were above both prior year sales and our plan for the quarter.  Comparable store sales increased 9.5% as our customers responded well to our promotions and value proposition in the third quarter.  In addition, our higher margin tuxedo rental revenues had a U.S. comparable store sales increase of 10.9% in the third quarter, driven by increased unit rental rates and unit rentals as well as the absence of the rentals shift last year to the fourth quarter for the 11-11-11 event date.

"Moores, our retail brand in Canada, was 11% of our total sales mix in the 2012 third quarter and delivered a comparable store sales increase of 3.0%," continued Ewert.  "K&G, with 12% of our total third quarter sales, had a comparable store sales decrease of 4.2%.  Sales at K&G were disappointing as customers did not respond to our promotions and new marketing campaign as well as expected.  Our Corporate Apparel segment, which represented 11% of our total 2012 third quarter sales, had a sales increase of 10.1% as planned launch dates for customer uniform programs occurred."

The following is a summary of net sales for third quarter and year to date fiscal 2012.  The dollars shown are U.S. dollars in millions and due to rounded numbers may not sum.  Comparable store sales do not include ecommerce sales and the Moores' comparable store sales change is based on the Canadian dollar.

2012 FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

For the fiscal year, the Company expects GAAP diluted earnings per share in a range of $2.57 to $2.63, an increase of 8.0% to 10.5% over the prior year adjusted diluted earnings per share of $2.38.  Fiscal 2012 is a 53-week year with an extra week included in the fourth quarter.  Diluted earnings per share from the extra week are estimated at $0.03.

For the fourth quarter, GAAP diluted earnings per share is expected to be in a range of $0.01 to a loss of $0.05 per share, as compared to the prior year adjusted loss per share of $0.05.

"Our current guidance reflects a lowered earnings expectation from our previous fourth quarter guidance, which was for diluted EPS in a range of $0.12 to $0.15," commented Ewert.  "The guidance for the 2012 fiscal year is also lower than our previous estimate of $2.74 to $2.80.  The revised guidance results from our lower than expected retail clothing sales in November and a more cautious outlook for the remainder of this fiscal year.

"We experienced negative November comparable store clothing sales in both the US and Canada as a result of lower traffic levels at our retail stores.  We believe the storms in the northeast US at the start of the month, as well as consumer distractions caused by the presidential election, the "fiscal cliff" and other economic concerns, contributed to our reduced traffic levels.  We further believe that a more cautious outlook for traffic trends and clothing sales through the fourth quarter is now warranted and have revised our guidance accordingly."

The following is a summary of guidance information.  All comparable store sales growth is based on a 52-week comparable time period.  Comparisons to prior year are to adjusted numbers which exclude acquisition related integration costs and a non-cash asset impairment charge.

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter?

For example, using spot instances and co...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
