Columbia Sportswear Company Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter, First Half and Full Year of 2015

Columbia Sportswear Company announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $478,982,000 against $424,084,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $44,122,000 against $35,451,000 a year ago. Income before income tax was $42,029,000 against $35,124,000 a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $26,471,000 or $0.37 diluted per share against $22,255,000 or $0.37 basic and diluted per share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $28,707,000 against $43,496,000 a year ago. Capital expenditures were $15,467,000 against $17,763,000 a year ago. The company provided earnings guidance for the second quarter, first half and full year of 2015. In addition, the second quarter is the company’s lowest net sales volume quarter. As a result, changes in the timing of shipments and incremental fixed operating costs can have an amplified effect on operating income. The company currently anticipates approximately 7.0% to 8.0% growth in first-half 2015 operating income, representing operating margin comparable to the 2.5% operating margin achieved in the first half of 2014. In addition, the company is planning a first-half 2015 effective tax rate of approximately 36%, compared with an effective tax rate of approximately 6% in the first half 2014, which included a non-recurring tax benefit of $5.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share. As a result of the higher anticipated effective tax rate, coupled with approximately $2.0 million of non-operating foreign currency losses incurred in the first quarter of 2015, first-half 2015 net income is expected to be between $7.0 million to $10.0 million, or $0.10 to $0.14 per diluted share, compared to first-half 2014 net income of $15.9 million, or $0.23 per diluted share. All projections related to anticipated future results are forward-looking in nature and are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ, perhaps materially. The company continues to expect high single-digit 2015 net sales growth (low teen growth on a constant-dollar basis) compared to 2014 net sales of $2.1 billion. The company expects fiscal year 2015 gross margins to improve by approximately 50 basis points, and selling, general and administrative expenses to increase at a rate slightly lower than anticipated sales growth, generating approximately 25 basis points of operating expense leverage. Based on the assumptions, the company expects mid-teen percentage growth in operating income, to between $223 million and $234 million, resulting in operating margin of approximately 10.2%, compared with operating income of $198.8 million and operating margin of 9.5% in 2014. The company expects net income after non-controlling interest of approximately $154 million to $161 million, or approximately $2.15 to $2.25 per diluted share, compared with $137.2 million, or $1.94 per diluted share, in 2014. This outlook includes an estimated unfavorable impact of approximately $0.14 per diluted share from the stronger U.S. Dollar, comprising lower gross margins within the company's foreign subsidiaries as a result of increased costs of inventory and, to a lesser degree, the translation of net income.
