DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC) today reported financial results for its third quarter ended December 28, 2019. All per share amounts are presented on a diluted basis. This release refers to “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts, terms that are described under the heading “Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “constant dollar” amounts are the same. This release also refers to “continuing” and “discontinued” operations amounts, which are concepts described under the heading “Discontinued Operations - Kontoor Brands Business.” Unless otherwise noted, results presented are based on continuing operations. This release also refers to “adjusted” amounts, a term that is described under the heading “Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Transaction and Deal Related Expenses, Costs Related to Office Relocations and Specified Strategic Business Decisions, Pension Settlement Charges, and the Impact of Swiss Tax Legislation.” Unless otherwise noted, “reported” and “adjusted” amounts are the same. This release also refers to certain "excluding the occupational Work business" amounts, a term that is described under the heading "Adjusted Amounts - Excluding the Occupational Work Business."

“Our third quarter performance was strong and our year-to-date results are at the high end of our long-term growth objectives. Despite a mixed holiday season in the US, we're on track to deliver solid performance and are well positioned for continued growth and value creation in fiscal year 2021," said Steve Rendle, VF's Chairman, President and CEO.

Constant Currency - Excluding the Impact of Foreign Currency

This release refers to “reported” amounts in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), which include translation and transactional impacts from foreign currency exchange rates. This release also refers to “constant dollar” amounts, which exclude the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. The “constant dollar” amounts also exclude the impact of foreign currency-denominated transactions in countries with highly inflationary economies. Reconciliations of GAAP measures to constant currency amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

Discontinued Operations - Kontoor Brands Business

On May 22, 2019, VF completed the spin-off of its Jeans business, which included the Wrangler®, Lee® and Rock & Republic® brands, as well as the VF OutletTM business, into an independent, publicly traded company under the name Kontoor Brands, Inc. (“Kontoor Brands”). Accordingly, the company has removed the assets and liabilities of the Jeans business as of this date and included the operating results and cash flows of the business in discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Adjusted Amounts - Excluding the Occupational Work Business

On January 21, 2020, VF announced that it is commencing a review of strategic alternatives for the occupational portion of its Work segment. As defined in the January 21, 2020 news release, the occupational portion of the Work segment primarily consists of nine brands and businesses: Red Kap®, VF Solutions®, Bulwark®, Workrite®, Walls®, Terra®, Kodiak®, Work Authority® and Horace Small®. The proposed transaction does not include the Dickies® and Timberland PRO® brands.

This release refers to certain "excluding the occupational Work business" amounts, which exclude the estimated historical and forward-looking results of the occupational Work group of brands. These excluded amounts are not indicative of the results of the occupational Work businesses as a standalone entity, and are not representative of VF’s discontinued operations in the event of a disposition. VF’s analysis of the disposition of the occupational Work businesses has not been completed and is subject to change based on the final structure of any potential transaction.

Adjusted Amounts - Excluding Transaction and Deal Related Expenses, Costs Related to Office Relocations and Specified Strategic Business Decisions, Pension Settlement Charges, and the Impact of Swiss Tax Legislation

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude transaction and deal related expenses associated with the acquisitions and integration of the Icebreaker® and Altra® brands. The adjusted amounts in this release also exclude transaction expenses associated with the completed spin-off of the Jeans business. Total transaction and deal related expenses were approximately $22 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Additionally, the amounts also exclude an adjustment to tax expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 of approximately $10 million associated with the loss on sale for the Reef® divestiture.

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude costs primarily associated with the previously announced relocation of VF’s global headquarters and certain brands to Denver, Colorado. The adjusted amounts in this release also exclude costs related to strategic business decisions in South America and the operating results of jeanswear wind down activities in South America following the spin-off of Kontoor Brands. Total costs were approximately $16 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and approximately $51 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020.

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude a noncash pension settlement charge. The pension settlement charge was a result of actions taken to reduce risk, volatility and the liability associated with VF's U.S. pension plan. Total expense was approximately $23 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and the first nine months of fiscal 2020.

The adjusted amounts in this release exclude the impact of recent Swiss tax legislation. On May 19, 2019, Switzerland voted to approve the Federal Act on Tax Reform and AHV Financing ("Swiss Tax Act"). Certain provisions of the Swiss Tax Act were enacted during fiscal 2020, which resulted in adjustments to deferred tax positions of approximately $164 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. It is expected that additional provisions may be enacted in subsequent periods, resulting in further adjustments.

Combined, the above items negatively impacted earnings per share by $0.10 during the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and positively impacted earnings per share by $0.20 during the first nine months of fiscal 2020. All adjusted amounts referenced herein exclude the effects of these amounts.

Reconciliations of measures calculated in accordance with GAAP to adjusted amounts are presented in the supplemental financial information included with this release, which identifies and quantifies all excluded items, and provides management’s view of why this information is useful to investors.

Forward-looking Statements

Certain statements included in this release and attachments are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements are made based on our expectations and beliefs concerning future events impacting VF and therefore involve several risks and uncertainties. You can identify these statements by the fact that they use words such as “will,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “should,” and “may” and other words and terms of similar meaning or use of future dates. We caution that forward-looking statements are not guarantees and that actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Potential risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results of operations or financial condition of VF to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements in this release include, but are not limited to: risks associated with the spin-off of our Jeanswear business completed on May 22, 2019, including the risk that VF will not realize all of the expected benefits of the spin-off; and the risk that the spin-off will not be tax-free for U.S. federal income tax purposes; the risk that there will be a loss of synergies from separating the businesses that could negatively impact the balance sheet, profit margins or earnings of VF. There are also risks associated with the relocation of our global headquarters and a number of brands to the metro Denver area, including the risk of significant disruption to our operations, the temporary diversion of management resources and loss of key employees who have substantial experience and expertise in our business, the risk that we may encounter difficulties retaining employees who elect to transfer and attracting new talent in the Denver area to replace our employees who are unwilling to relocate, the risk that the relocation may involve significant additional costs to us and that the expected benefits of the move may not be fully realized. Other risks include foreign currency fluctuations; the level of consumer demand for apparel, footwear and accessories; disruption to VF’s distribution system; the financial strength of VF's customers; fluctuations in the price, availability and quality of raw materials and contracted products; disruption and volatility in the global capital and credit markets; VF's response to changing fashion trends, evolving consumer preferences and changing patterns of consumer behavior, intense competition from online retailers, manufacturing and product innovation; increasing pressure on margins; VF's ability to implement its business strategy; VF's ability to grow its international and direct-to-consumer businesses; VF’s and its vendors’ ability to maintain the strength and security of information technology systems; the risk that VF's facilities and systems and those of our third-party service providers may be vulnerable to and unable to anticipate or detect data security breaches and data or financial loss; VF's ability to properly collect, use, manage and secure consumer and employee data; stability of VF's manufacturing facilities and foreign suppliers; continued use by VF's suppliers of ethical business practices; VF’s ability to accurately forecast demand for products; continuity of members of VF’s management; VF's ability to protect trademarks and other intellectual property rights; possible goodwill and other asset impairment; maintenance by VF’s licensees and distributors of the value of VF’s brands; VF's ability to execute and integrate acquisitions; changes in tax laws and liabilities; legal, regulatory, political and economic risks; the risk of economic uncertainty associated with the pending exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union ("Brexit") or any other similar referendums that may be held; and adverse or unexpected weather conditions. More information on potential factors that could affect VF's financial results is included from time to time in VF's public reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including VF's Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

Constant Currency Financial Information

VF is a global company that reports financial information in U.S. dollars in accordance with GAAP. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations affect the amounts reported by VF from translating its foreign revenues and expenses into U.S. dollars. These rate fluctuations can have a significant effect on reported operating results. As a supplement to our reported operating results, we present constant currency financial information, which is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of translating foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. The constant currency financial information also excludes the impact of foreign currency-denominated transactions in countries with highly inflationary economies. We use constant currency information to provide a framework to assess how our business performed excluding the effects of changes in the rates used to calculate foreign currency translation, and measuring foreign currency transactions in highly inflationary economies. Management believes this information is useful to investors to facilitate comparison of operating results and better identify trends in our businesses.

 

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). Similarly, foreign currency transactions in highly inflationary economies, on a constant currency basis, are calculated using exchange rates from the comparable period of the prior year.

 

These constant currency performance measures should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, our operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(a) Transaction and deal related costs include acquisition, integration and other costs related to the acquisitions of the Icebreaker® and Altra® brands, which totaled $12.8 million for the nine months ended December 2019. The costs also include separation and related expenses associated with the spin-off of the Jeans business of $9.5 million, that did not meet the criteria for discontinued operations, for the nine months ended December 2019. These transaction and deal related costs resulted in a net tax benefit of $5.8 million in the nine months ended December 2019. Additionally, the three and nine months ended December 2019 include an adjustment to tax expense of $10.2 million associated with the loss on sale for the divestiture of the Reef® brand.

(b) Relocation and specified strategic business decisions for the three and nine months ended December 2019 include costs associated with the relocation of VF’s global headquarters and certain brands to Denver, Colorado, which totaled $10.8 million and $41.5 million for the three and nine months ended December 2019, respectively. This activity includes a gain of approximately $11 million on the sale of certain office real estate and related assets in connection with the relocation, which was recorded in the three months ended June 2019. The activity also includes the operating results of jeanswear wind down activities in South America post the separation of Kontoor Brands and costs related to specified strategic business decisions to cease operations in Argentina and planned business model changes in certain other countries in South America, which totaled $5.4 million and $9.6 million for the three and nine months ended December 2019, respectively. The relocation and specified strategic business decisions costs resulted in a net tax benefit of $3.0 million and $11.3 million for the three and nine months ended December 2019, respectively.

(c) The pension settlement charge was a result of actions taken to reduce risk, volatility and the liability associated with VF's U.S. pension plan. The pension settlement charge resulted in a net tax benefit of $5.8 million in the three and nine months ended December 2019.

(d) On May 19, 2019, Switzerland voted to approve the Federal Act on Tax Reform and AHV Financing ("Swiss Tax Act"). Certain provisions of the Swiss Tax Act were enacted during the three months ended September 2019, which resulted in adjustments to deferred tax positions of $164.4 million for the nine months ended December 2019.

(e) The contribution from acquisition represents the operating results of Altra® for the two months ended May 2019, which reflects the one-year anniversary of the acquisition. The results exclude transaction and deal related costs.

(f) Amounts shown in the table have been calculated using unrounded numbers. The diluted earnings per share impacts were calculated using 400,322,000 and 401,499,000 weighted average common shares for the three and nine months ended December 2019, respectively.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The financial information above has been presented on a GAAP basis, on an adjusted basis, which excludes the impact of transaction and deal related costs, activity related to relocation and specified strategic business decisions, the impact of the pension settlement charge and the impact of the Swiss Tax Act, and on an adjusted organic basis, which excludes the operating results of Altra® (for the two months ended May 2019). Contribution from acquisition also excludes transaction and deal related costs. These adjusted presentations are non-GAAP measures. Management believes these measures provide investors with useful supplemental information regarding VF's underlying business trends and the performance of VF's ongoing operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations.

 

Management uses the above financial measures internally in its budgeting and review process and, in some cases, as a factor in determining compensation. While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of or superior to, VF's operating performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
