ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2022-- Carter’s, Inc. (NYSE:CRI), the largest branded marketer in North America of apparel exclusively for babies and young children, today reported its fourth quarter and fiscal 2021 results.

“We saw strong demand for our brands in the fourth quarter which enabled us to exceed our sales and earnings objectives” said Michael Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“We achieved sales growth in each of our retail, wholesale, and international segments. Our fourth quarter earnings reflect the benefits from strong holiday demand for our brands and improved price realization which helped mitigate higher provisions for air freight, technology, performance-based compensation, and charitable donations.

“For the year, we achieved a record level of profitability which we believe was driven by structural changes made to our business during the pandemic, including the rationalization of product choices, closure of low margin stores, leaner inventories, more impactful and effective marketing, and improved price realization. We believe these changes have enabled profit margins which are sustainable and provide a stronger foundation to build on in the years ahead.

“In 2021, we returned nearly $360 million to our shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. Given our projected cash flow, our Board of Directors has declared a 25% increase in our quarterly dividend to $0.75 per share and authorized a new $1.0 billion share repurchase plan, inclusive of previous authorizations.

“We are planning good growth in sales and earnings in 2022 driven by the strength of our brands, compelling value of our product offerings, and unparalleled multi-channel model that provides the most extensive distribution of children’s apparel in North America. With the continued recovery from pandemic-related disruptions, we have raised our longer-term growth objectives and are now forecasting annual sales to exceed $4 billion by 2026, with earnings in excess of $12.00 per share.”

Consolidated Results

Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2021 (13 weeks) compared to Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2020 (14 weeks)

Consolidated net sales increased $72.2 million, or 7.3%, to $1,062.1 million. The additional week in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 contributed approximately $32.1 million in consolidated net sales. On a comparable week basis, net sales grew 10.9%. On a reported basis, the Company’s U.S. Retail, U.S. Wholesale, and International segments grew 3%, 9%, and 25%, respectively. U.S. Retail segment comparable sales increased 15%, driven by improved store sales. Sales in all segments in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 were adversely affected by COVID-19 related disruptions. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates used for translation in the fourth quarter fiscal 2021, as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, had a favorable effect of approximately $3.3 million, or 0.3%.

Operating income increased $4.1 million, or 3.1%, to $138.0 million, compared to $133.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Operating margin decreased 50 basis points to 13.0%. Adjusted operating income (a non-GAAP measure) decreased $7.6 million, or 5.2%, to $137.9 million, compared to $145.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted operating margin was 13.0%, compared to 14.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, reflecting higher transportation costs, the release of inventory reserves in the prior year, increased compensation provisions, and higher charitable donations, partially offset by strong product demand, including improved price realization.

Net income decreased $2.0 million, or 2.1%, to $97.0 million, compared to $99.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Earnings per diluted share increased 2.2% to $2.31, compared to $2.26 in the prior year period. Adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure) decreased $11.0 million, or 10.2%, to $96.9 million, compared to $107.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted earnings per diluted share (a non-GAAP measure) decreased 6.1% to $2.31, compared to $2.46 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.

Fiscal Year 2021 (52 weeks) compared to Fiscal Year 2020 (53 weeks)

Consolidated net sales increased $462.1 million, or 15.3%, to $3.5 billion, driven by strong growth in all segments. The additional week in fiscal 2020 contributed approximately $32.1 million in consolidated net sales. On a comparable week basis, net sales grew 16.5%. On a reported basis, the Company’s U.S. Retail, U.S. Wholesale, and International segments grew 14%, 13%, and 29%, respectively. Fiscal 2020 was adversely impacted by the temporary closure of our retail stores in March, April, and May 2020 and reduced demand in our other businesses as a result of disruptions related to COVID-19. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates used for translation in fiscal 2021, as compared to fiscal 2020, had a favorable effect of approximately $20.0 million, or 0.7%.

Operating income in fiscal 2021 increased $307.2 million, or 161.8%, to $497.1 million, compared to $189.9 million in fiscal 2020. Operating margin increased 800 basis points to 14.3%. Adjusted operating income (a non-GAAP measure) increased $221.0 million, or 79.0% to $500.8 million, compared to $279.8 million in fiscal 2020. Adjusted operating margin increased 510 basis points to 14.4%, reflecting strong product demand, including improved price realization, partially offset by increased compensation provisions, higher transportation costs, the absence of COVID-related inventory provisions, and investments in marketing and omnichannel capabilities.

Net income in fiscal 2021 increased $230.0 million, or 209.7%, to $339.7 million, compared to $109.7 million in fiscal 2020. Earnings per diluted share increased 212.4% to $7.81, compared to $2.50 in the prior year period. Adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure) increased $159.9 million, or 87.6%, to $342.5 million compared to $182.6 million in fiscal 2020. Adjusted earnings per diluted share (a non-GAAP measure) increased 89.2% to $7.87, compared to $4.16 in fiscal 2020.

Net cash provided by operations in fiscal 2021 was $268.3 million compared to $588.5 million in fiscal 2020. The decrease reflects strong growth in net income offset by the normalization of vendor payment terms which were extended during the early days of the pandemic in 2020.

Return of Capital Initiatives

As part of the Company’s ongoing commitment to return capital to shareholders, the Company’s Board of Directors on February 24, 2022 approved a 25% increase ($0.15 per share) in its quarterly cash dividend, to $0.75 per share, for payment on March 18, 2022, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 8, 2022, and authorized a new $1.0 billion share repurchase plan.

The share repurchase authorization announced today permits the Company to repurchase shares of its common stock up to $1.0 billion, inclusive of approximately $302 million remaining under previous authorizations. Such purchases may be made in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, with the level and timing of activity being at the discretion of the Company's management depending on market conditions, stock price, other investment priorities, and other factors. The Company plans to execute this authorization over a period of approximately four years. These share repurchase authorizations have no expiration date.

The Company’s Board of Directors will evaluate future distributions of capital, including dividends and share repurchases, based on a number of factors, including business conditions, the Company’s financial performance, and other considerations.

From the beginning of fiscal 2007 through fiscal 2021, the Company has returned a total of $2.5 billion to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends.

Return of Capital Activity

In the fourth quarter and fiscal 2021, the Company returned to shareholders a total of $214.1 million and $359.5 million, respectively, through share repurchases and dividends as described below.

Share Repurchases

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company repurchased and retired 1.9 million shares of its common stock for $189.1 million at an average price of $101.02 per share.

During fiscal 2021, the Company repurchased and retired 3.0 million shares for $299.3 million at an average price of $100.87 per share.

Fiscal 2022 year-to-date through February 24, 2022, the Company has repurchased and retired a total of 0.5 million shares for $49.2 million at an average price of $93.98 per share.

All shares were repurchased in open market transactions pursuant to applicable regulations for such transactions.

Dividends

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company paid a cash dividend of $0.60 per common share totaling $25.0 million.

In fiscal 2021, the Company paid quarterly cash dividends per common share of $0.40 in each of the second and third quarters and $0.60 in the fourth quarter, totaling $60.1 million.

Business Outlook

For fiscal 2022, the Company projects:

  • Net sales increase of approximately 2% to 3%, with growth in all segments;
  • Adjusted operating income increase of approximately 4% to 6% (compared to adjusted operating income of $500.8 million in fiscal 2021); and
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share increase of approximately 12% to 14% (compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $7.87 in fiscal 2021).

Our forecast for fiscal 2022 reflects:

  • The strength of our merchandising and marketing initiatives;
  • Better mix and level of inventories;
  • Gradual improvement in supply chain performance;
  • Improved price realization;
  • Lower incentive compensation provisions;
  • Lower interest expense; and
  • The benefit of share repurchases.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company projects:

  • Net sales of approximately $740 million to $750 million;
  • Adjusted operating income of approximately $85 million to $90 million (compared to $128.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021); and
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of approximately $1.25 to $1.35 (compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.98 in the first quarter of fiscal 2021).

Our forecast for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 reflects:

  • Lower sales due to: the non-comping benefit of significant government stimulus in 2021, prior year store closures, Easter holiday demand shift into the second quarter, and lingering supply chain delays;
  • Higher mix of off-price channel sales to clear late fall 2021 deliveries;
  • Continued market recovery from COVID-19;
  • Benefit from higher vaccination rates; and
  • Continued progress improving price realization to mitigate impact of inflation.

For the first half of fiscal 2022, the Company projects:

  • Net sales of approximately $1,550 million to $1,565 million;
  • Adjusted operating income of approximately $195 million to $205 million (compared to adjusted operating income of $239.0 million in the first half of fiscal 2021); and
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of approximately $3.05 to $3.25 (compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $3.64 in the first half of fiscal 2021).

For the five year period (fiscal years 2021 through 2026), the Company projects the following (expressed as compound annual growth rates):

  • Net sales: low single-digit growth
  • Adjusted operating income: mid single-digit growth
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share: high single-digit growth

We intend to redeem our 5.500% senior notes in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, subject to market conditions, using cash on hand. Redemption of the 5.500% senior notes will require payment of an early redemption premium, which along with transaction fees and unamortized debt issuance costs is estimated to result in a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $21 million in the first half of fiscal 2022. Our adjusted diluted earnings per share forecasts exclude this estimated charge. We also plan to evaluate a potential refinancing of our 5.625% senior notes in 2022, subject to market conditions, which may result in an additional charge related to loss on extinguishment of debt.

We have not reconciled forward-looking adjusted operating income or adjusted diluted earnings per share to their most directly comparable GAAP measures because we cannot predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain components of such reconciliations, including COVID-19 expenses, retail store operating leases and other long-lived asset impairments, net, restructuring costs, and early extinguishment of debt that are not within our control including due to factors described above, or others that may arise, without unreasonable effort. For these reasons, we are unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could materially impact the amount of future operating income or diluted EPS, the most directly comparable GAAP metrics to adjusted operating income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, respectively.

Note: Results may not be additive due to rounding.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures that are not defined or prepared in accordance with GAAP. We define EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for the items described in the footnotes (a) - (e) to the table above.

We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we consider them to be important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. These measures are used by the Company's executive management to assess the Company's performance.

The use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA instead of net income or cash flows from operations has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent net income or cash flow from operations as those terms are defined by GAAP and do not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. While EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures are frequently used as measures of operations and the ability to meet debt service requirements, these terms are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters that we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations. Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as discretionary cash available to us for working capital, debt service and other purposes.

The Company evaluates its net sales on both an “as reported” and a “constant currency” basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates that occurred between the comparative periods. Constant currency net sales results are calculated by translating current period net sales in local currency to the U.S. dollar amount by using the currency conversion rate for the prior comparative period. The Company consistently applies this approach to net sales for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. The Company believes that the presentation of net sales on a constant currency basis provides useful supplemental information regarding changes in our net sales that were not due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates and such information is consistent with how the Company assesses changes in its net sales between comparative periods.

Note: Results may not be additive due to rounding.
