gildan activewear inc (GIL) Key Developments

Gildan Activewear Inc. Declares Quarterly Dividend, Payable on June 22, 2015; Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended April 05, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter Ending June 2015 and Revises Earnings Guidance for the Year Ending January 3, 2016

Gildan Activewear Inc. declared cash dividend of $0.065 per share, payable on June 22, 2015 to shareholders of record on May 27, 2015. The rate is equivalent to the dividend the company paid in the previous quarter when excluding the effects of its March 2015 two-for-one stock split. The company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended April 05, 2015. For the quarter, the company’s net earnings declined to $56.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, from $79.2 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, in the quarter ended March 30, 2014. Net sales rose to $636.2 million from $548.8 million. Adjusted earnings were merely in line with expectations as a bigger-than-expected revenue increase was outweighed by a drop in margins. Operating income was $61.3 million against $83.9 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $92.2 million against $109.2 million a year ago. Adjusted net earnings were $57.5 million against $79.2 million a year ago. Adjusted diluted EPS were $0.24 against $0.32 a year ago. Cash used in operating activities was $25.1 million against cash flow from operating activities of $5.6 million a year ago. Negative free cash flow was $108.0 million against $79.9 million a year ago. Net indebtedness was $557.7 as on April 5, 2015. The company utilized $108 million of cash to finance capital expenditures of $83.6 million and seasonal working capital requirements. Earnings before income taxes were $58.4 million against $83.8 million a year ago. Purchase of property, plant and equipment was $82.1 million against $84.0 million a year ago. Purchase of intangible assets was $1.4 million against $1.9 million a year ago. For the second quarter ending in June 2015, the company forecasts adjusted EPS of $0.43 to $0.45 on sales of $750 million. For the year ending January 3, 2016, the company cut the high end of its guidance range for adjusted diluted EPS, now projecting $1.50 to $1.55, versus its previous guidance for $1.50 to $1.57. The narrowing of the full year outlook is due to the further decline in international currencies versus the U.S. dollar. The company has now hedged against further currency exposure in order to avoid the need for further selling price increases in Europe 2015. EBITDA for calendar 2015 is now projected to be $525 million to $540 million. The company is expecting to generate strong free cash flows during the balance of the year, including the impact of projected reductions in inventory levels. Inventory valuations will also be positively impacted by the declining cost of cotton and lower manufacturing costs. Capital expenditures in calendar 2015 are projected to be $250 million to $300 million. The company continues to project consolidated net sales slightly in excess of $2.65 billion. Adjusted EBITDA is now projected to be $525 to $540 million.
