N Brown Group plc Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended February 28, 2015 and Full Year 2015/16

N Brown Group Plc provided earnings guidance for the fourth quarter and full year ended February 28, 2015. For the quarter, the company’s revenue was impacted by the continued rebalancing of the business towards Product sales and away from Financial Services. Although this transition is a planned process and in line with its strategy, as well as consistent with its focus on improving the quality of its debtor book, the pace of adjustment was faster during the fourth quarter than anticipated. This resulted in overall full year 14/15 revenue being a little below expectations and flat year-on-year. Full year percentage gross margin is in line with expectations. Within this, however, product gross margin represented more of a headwind than its previously anticipated in its earlier guidance. This is because, during fourth quarter, the company made substantial price investments in both tactical clearance activity to exit the season with inventory in a good position and strategic price moves in fashion categories. The strategic price moves were successful, both in terms of driving volume and overall customer response. The company has therefore decided to continue them into full year 15/16 as the company strengthens its value position further in line with its overall strategy. Consequently, the company now expect full year 14/15 continuing PBT to be slightly below the range previously guided to and current market consensus of £88 million. Net debt is expected to be in the region of £250 million. For the full year 2015/16, the company announced that it enter the new financial year it has accelerated the important and necessary transformation of its business. The company continue to lay the required foundations for future growth by both investing in its competitiveness and its infrastructure. The company will give more detailed guidance at its full year results but at this early stage, the company expects gross margin to be -100 bps to flat year-on-year as it continue the strategic price investments recently implemented. Depreciation and amortization in the range of £25 million to £28 million. Net interest costs in the range of £8 million to £10 million. Capex of £50 million to £60 million, as the company accelerate its systems transformation project and invest in an extension of its warehouse to support future growth.
