Chico's FAS, Inc. (NYSE: CHS) (the "Company") today announced its financial results for the fiscal 2018 fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 2, 2019.

For the thirteen weeks ended February 2, 2019 ("the fourth quarter"), the Company reported a net loss of $16.6 million, or $0.14 diluted loss per share, compared to net income of $28.0 million, or $0.22 diluted earnings per share, for the fourteen weeks ended February 3, 2018 ("last year's fourth quarter"). The Company reported a fourth quarter adjusted net loss of $8.6 million, or $0.07 diluted loss per share, compared to adjusted net income of $14.5 million, or $0.11 diluted earnings per share, as presented in the related accompanying GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation.

For the fifty-two weeks ended February 2, 2019 ("fiscal 2018"), the Company reported net income of $35.6 million, or $0.28 diluted earnings per share, compared to net income of $101.0 million, or $0.79 diluted earnings per share, for the fifty-three weeks ended February 3, 2018 ("fiscal 2017"). The Company reported fiscal 2018 adjusted net income of $38.8 million, or $0.31 diluted earnings per share, compared to adjusted net income of $92.7 million, or $0.72 diluted earnings per share, as presented in the related accompanying GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation.

Shelley Broader, CEO and President of the Company, said, "We achieved sequential improvement in comparable sales in all three brands in the fourth quarter, and with work continuing across the Company, we believe we are better positioned heading into the new fiscal year. We are focused on driving sales, efficiencies and agility throughout the organization as we leverage our robust omnichannel capabilities. At our namesake Chico's brand, improvement actions are taking hold, and we expect that Karen, our new Chico's Brand President, will further advance these efforts. I am confident that all the actions underway will enable the Company to compete, succeed and drive value creation."

Update on Chico's Brand Performance Improvement Plan

  • Recent adjustments made to planning and allocation strategies for certain basics and top key items improved in-stock availability for these items, which in combination with repositioned marketing and promotions, helped drive the sequential improvement in comparable sales.
  • The Company announced separately today, that Karen McKibbin has been appointed as the new Chico's Brand President, effective April 1, 2019. Ms. McKibbin brings substantial merchandising, operations and retail experience that we believe will successfully advance the improvement efforts underway.
  • As previously announced, the Company has adjusted the spring and summer assortments at Chico's to appropriately balance merchandise architecture, reduce planned receipts and chase more merchandise that is performing well.
  • Strategies to further improve product aesthetic and architecture are also well underway for fall deliveries.

Update on Retail Fleet Optimization Plan

  • As previously announced, the Company intends to close at least 250 stores in the U.S. over the next three years as part of its efforts to better capitalize on its omnichannel platform, reduce costs, improve profitability and return on invested capital.
  • Under this plan, the Company expects to close approximately 100 Chico's, 90 White House Black Market and 60 Soma locations over the next three years, with the majority of the closings occurring in years two and three.
  • In fiscal 2019, the closures are expected to be approximately 60 to 80 stores. The closings will be across all brands and weighted to the second half of the fiscal year. The closings are expected to have minimal impact on sales and earnings in fiscal 2019.
  • In the fourth quarter, the Company recorded pre-tax impairment and accelerated depreciation charges within cost of goods sold of $9.4 million and $1.3 million, respectively, related to the retail fleet optimization plan. On an after-tax basis, the fourth quarter impact of these charges was $8.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share.

Review of Company Operations

  • In January 2019, the Company initiated a review of its operations to identify opportunities to enhance its capabilities and reduce costs. The Company has engaged outside consultants to assist with the review.
  • As part of the review, the Company has identified opportunities for process improvement efficiencies and meaningful annualized cost savings in its Sourcing and Supply Chain. These efficiencies build upon the Company's previous supply chain initiatives implemented in fiscal 2016.
  • The Company's review is ongoing, and other areas under evaluation include Marketing, Shared Services and all customer touch points.

Other Fourth Quarter Business Highlights

  • Soma reported positive comparable sales of 6.2%. This better-than-expected performance was primarily driven by solution bras. In January, the brand successfully launched SOMAINNOFIT™, which uses a revolutionary way to help women find their best bra fit through a mobile app.
  • White House Black Market comparable sales improved sequentially, compared to the third quarter. The brand continued to make progress in refining its polished workwear and polished casual merchandise assortments to better meet its customers' expectations.
  • The Company remains on track to rollout Style Connect, an enhanced platform that provides digitized clienteling tools, to all stores in the first quarter of 2019. The rollout has already begun in eight U.S. markets, and includes training and placement of virtual stylists.

Net Sales

For the fourth quarter, net sales were $524.7 million compared to $587.8 million in last year's fourth quarter. This decrease of 10.7% reflects the $29 million benefit of the 53rd week in last year's fourth quarter, a comparable sales decline of 3.8% and a decrease in selling square footage in fiscal 2018. The comparable sales decline was driven by a decrease in transaction count and lower average dollar sale.

For fiscal 2018, net sales were $2.1 billion compared to $2.3 billion in fiscal 2017. This decrease of 6.6% reflects a comparable sales decline of 4.9%, the $29 million benefit of the 53rd week in fiscal 2017 and a decrease in selling square footage in fiscal 2018. The comparable sales decline was driven by a decrease in transaction count and lower average dollar sale.

(1) Comparable sales for the thirteen and fifty-two weeks ended have been adjusted to eliminate the impact of the calendar shift due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2017. Fiscal 2018 comparable sales represent sales for the thirteen and fifty-two weeks ended February 2, 2019 compared to sales for the thirteen and fifty-two weeks ended February 3, 2018.

Gross Margin

For the fourth quarter, gross margin was $158.7 million, or 30.2% of net sales, compared to $221.6 million, or 37.7% of net sales, for last year's fourth quarter. The decline in gross margin primarily reflects a 550-basis point decrease related to the clearing of Chico's brand seasonable merchandise, the continued expansion of our omnichannel programs and deleverage of occupancy costs as well as a 200-basis point charge due to our retail fleet optimization plan.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

For the fourth quarter, selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") were $180.8 million, or 34.4% of net sales, compared to $192.0 million, or 32.7% of net sales, for last year's fourth quarter. This decrease of $11.2 million primarily reflects approximately $10.0 million related to the 53rd week in last year's fourth quarter and a decrease in incentive compensation, partially offset by investments in technology and costs related to outside consultants.

Income Tax

For the fourth quarter, the effective tax rate was 24.5% compared to 4.4% for last year's fourth quarter. Included in last year's fourth quarter was an approximate $10.0 million benefit resulting from the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the "Tax Act"). Excluding this impact, the effective tax rate in last year's fourth quarter was 37.7%.

The fiscal 2018 effective tax rate was 17.8% compared to fiscal 2017 effective tax rate of 29.7%. This reduction was primarily due to the impact of the Tax Act and transitional tax reform benefits related to fiscal 2017 recorded in the current year, partially offset by a 330-basis point increase in tax expense related to the accounting for employee share-based awards. Excluding the transitional tax reform benefits related to fiscal 2017, the fiscal 2018 effective tax rate was 29.1%.

Cash, Marketable Securities and Debt

At the end of the fourth quarter, cash and marketable securities totaled $186.1 million, a decrease of $34.0 million compared to last year's fourth quarter, while debt totaled $57.5 million, a decrease of $11.1 million from last year's fourth quarter. This $34.0 million decrease in cash and marketable securities includes $124.3 million in return of cash to shareholders through dividends and our share repurchase program.

Inventories

At the end of fiscal 2018, inventories totaled $235.2 million compared to $233.7 million at the end of fiscal 2017. This $1.5 million, or 0.6% increase, primarily reflects accelerated in-transits due to the timing of the Chinese New Year, partially offset by a 7% decrease in on-hand inventory compared to the end of fiscal 2017.

Share Repurchase Program

During the fourth quarter of 2018, under its $300.0 million share repurchase program announced in November 2015, the Company repurchased 8.6 million shares for $50.2 million, at a weighted average of $5.81 per share. The Company has $55.2 million remaining under the program. During fiscal 2018, the Company repurchased a total of 12.2 million shares for $81.1 million, at a weighted average of $6.65 per share.

Fiscal 2019 First Quarter and Full-Year Outlook

The Company is providing its outlook for fiscal 2019 as it continues to execute the Chico's brand performance improvement plan, optimize its retail fleet and implement initiatives to improve its operating effectiveness. This outlook excludes expected net charges related to the retail fleet optimization plan.

For the fiscal 2019 first quarter, the Company anticipates a mid to high-single-digit decline in total net sales and consolidated comparable sales compared to the fiscal 2018 first quarter, reflecting softer sales throughout the month of February.

For the fiscal 2019 first quarter, the Company expects gross margin as a percent of net sales to decline approximately 300 to 400 basis points compared to the fiscal 2018 first quarter, due primarily to incremental costs associated with its omnichannel programs and deleverage of fixed costs from lower sales.

Fiscal 2019 first quarter SG&A is expected to be approximately flat compared to the fiscal 2018 first quarter, reflecting savings in the Chico's brand, offset by investments in Soma marketing.

For full year fiscal 2019, the Company anticipates a low-single-digit decline in total net sales and consolidated comparable sales compared to fiscal 2018.

For full year fiscal 2019, the Company expects gross margin as a percent of net sales to be approximately flat to down 50 basis points compared to fiscal 2018, due to incremental costs associated with its omnichannel programs. The Company also anticipates SG&A to be approximately flat compared to fiscal 2018, reflecting investments in Soma marketing, offset by continued cost management.

The Company expects fiscal 2019 capital expenditures to be approximately $55 million, primarily driven by technology enhancements and focused store reinvestments. The Company estimates a fiscal 2019 tax rate in the range of 30% to 33% primarily as a result of an increase in tax expense related to the accounting for employee share-based awards.

Supplemental Detail on Net Income Per Share Calculation


In accordance with accounting guidance, unvested share-based payment awards that include non-forfeitable rights to dividends, whether paid or unpaid, are considered participating securities. As a result, such awards are required to be included in the calculation of earnings per common share pursuant to the "two-class" method. For the Company, participating securities are composed entirely of unvested restricted stock awards and performance-based restricted stock units ("PSUs") that have met their relevant performance criteria.


Net income per share is determined using the two-class method when it is more dilutive than the treasury stock method. Basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, including participating securities. Diluted net income per share reflects the dilutive effect of potential common shares from non-participating securities such as stock options, PSUs and restricted stock units. For the thirteen and fifty-two weeks ended February 2, 2019 and fourteen and fifty-three weeks ended February 3, 2018, potential common shares were excluded from the computation of diluted income per common share to the extent they were antidilutive.


The following unaudited table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted income per common share shown on the face of the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of income (in thousands, except per share amounts):

(1) Due to the differences between quarterly and year-to-date weighted average share counts and the effect of quarterly rounding to the nearest cent per diluted share, the year-to-date calculation of generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") diluted income per common share may not equal the sum of the quarters.

    

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) and Diluted Income (Loss) Per Common Share


The Company reports information in accordance with GAAP. The Company's management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP measures utilized by the Company may be unique to the Company, as they may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The Company believes presenting these non-GAAP measures, which exclude items that are not comparable from period to period, is useful to investors and others in evaluating the Company's ongoing operating and financial results in a manner that is consistent with management's evaluation of business performance and understanding how such results compare with the Company's historical performance. The reconciliation below excludes the impact of the Company's retail fleet optimization plan announced in the fourth quarter, the Tax Act, the 53rd week in fiscal 2017 and hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria (collectively, "Hurricanes") in fiscal 2017.


A reconciliation of net (loss) income and diluted (loss) income per share on a GAAP basis to net (loss) income and diluted (loss) income per share on a non-GAAP basis for the thirteen weeks and fifty-two weeks ended February 2, 2019 and fourteen and fifty-three weeks ended February 3, 2018 is presented in the table below:

(1) Adjustments for impairment and accelerated depreciation charges reflect the impact of incremental store closures included in the Company's retail fleet optimization plan. On a pre-tax basis, impairment and accelerated depreciation charges were $9.4 million and $1.3 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2018.

(2) Accelerated depreciation represents incremental depreciation as a result of the retail fleet optimization plan.

 

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation of Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow


As noted above, the Company reports information in accordance with GAAP. The Company's management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.


Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which the Company defines as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. We believe free cash flow, when used in conjunction with GAAP measures, provides investors with a meaningful analysis of our ability to generate cash for discretionary and non-discretionary items after deducting purchases of property and equipment.


Free cash flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, operating cash flows or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our method of determining non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies' methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies.


A reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities on a GAAP basis to free cash flow on a non-GAAP basis for the fifty-two weeks ended February 2, 2019 is presented in the table below:
