08 Earnings Call Transcript Welcome and thank you for standing by. At this time all participants are in a listen only mode. After the presentation we nike air max mens will conduct the question and answer session. [ Instructions]. Today s conference is being recorded. If you have any objections you may disconnect at this time.Good morning and thank you, Chanel. Thanks for taking the time to join us this morning. I m the new coordinator for investor relations at infoGROUP and I am pleased to be a part of this company. Joining me this morning is Bill Fairfield, our new Chief Executive Officer and Stormy Dean, our current Chief Financial Officer. Remember today s call is being recorded. Our comments include forward looking statements and I ask that you refer to the cautionary language in the earnings release for additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward looking statements.We also ask you refer to the documents the company files from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These documents contain and identify important nike air max 2013 cheap factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in our projects or forward looking statements.With that being said let s get started on what you all called in for today, our 2008 third quarter earnings. We will have question and answer session at the conclusion of the remarks.It is now my pleasure to introduce our new CEO, Bill Fairfield. Bill?Bill Fairfield Chief Executive OfficerThanks Lisa and good morning everybody. I ve had the pleasure of meeting with a few of you and chatting with others on the phone and I m extremely happy that you re joining us this morning.I have been on the job for just over eight weeks and needless to say it s been an exciting time. The good news is we have a tremendous amount of tenure and talent here at the Company and they have done a terrific job of keeping their eye on the ball during what can only be referred to as turbulent times.The good news is that we are in the finals nike free run cheap stages of closing this chapter of our company s history and moving the company forward. This quarter s earning will reflect that. The lawsuit is coming to a close with our court date set for early November. In addition we have been focusing our efforts on instituting the governance policies as indicated in the settlement agreement.Some highlights on that. You met Lisa Olson, we committed to creating a new investment relations program with the new head of Investor Relations and Lisa has got us off to a good start in that arena. We also indicated that we were going to have a significant change in the Board, I m pleased to announce that last Friday at the Board meeting, we nominated and elected Gary Morin to the Board. Gary was most recently the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Lexmark International. He retired from Lexmark in September of 2005 and in addition to his corporate finance functions he was responsible for Lexmark s Investor Relations, their corporate communications, strategy and development and internal audit. Gary currently serves on the Board of Directors of Sealy Corporation, a New York stock exchange company and Citrix Systems Inc., a NASDAQ company.We also are continuing our search for Executive Vice President of law and compliance. That search is going very well. I fully expect to be able to make announcement on that if not this week perhaps next week. We are also in the process as you know of recruiting a new Chief Financial Officer. We have our top candidate in here tomorrow to visit with several of the directors and myself and key members of management. So, as you can see, we ve taken all aspects of the settlement extremely seriously. Now we can fully concentrate our efforts on moving the Company forward.And moving forward includes, number one, being transparent and communicating with all constituents; two, accelerating our organic growth; and three, improving our financial foundation, which ultimately will increase shareholder value. Now that we ve talked about how we ve been getting our house in order, let s talk about the actual financial results, and for that I ll turn it over to Stormy Dean. Stormy?Stormy L. Dean Chief nike air max wright Financial OfficerThanks Bill. During the third quarter revenue was $181.9 million versus $185 million for the same period in 2007 and that s a decrease of 2%. However, if you exclude the Naviant lawsuit revenue of $9.9 million that we included in the third quarter of 2007, revenue actually increased 4%. For the third quarter, the Data Group revenue was $74.4 million versus $92.7 million for the same quarter last year. The third quarter 2007 Data Group revenue included that $9.9 million for the Naviant lawsuit as well as $3.6 million in revenue that was associated with the First Data Resources license agreements that were not renewed in 2008.The Services Group revenue for the third quarter was $42 million versus $36 million for the same period last year. That s a growth of 16%. Revenue for the marketing research group was $65.5 million compared to $56.3 million an increase of 16% for the same period last year. For the third quarter we had an operating loss of approximately $1.7 million versus $31.4 million of income during the corresponding quarter of 2007.The third quarter of 2008 operating loss includes $21.6 million in unusual charges, this includes $10.2 million in severance payment primarily to the former CEO as outlined in the stipulation of settlement entered to on August 20, 2008 and $7.1 million in legal expenses and professional fees related to the Derivative Litigation and the Special Litigation Committee s investigation, for a total of $17.3 million of non recurring charges.Also during the quarter we recorded $4.3 million of unusual charges which included $2.5 million in non cash accounting adjustments primarily for the write down of assets and $1.8 million for cost associated with closing facilities. The 2007 operating income includes one time operating income of $9.2 million from the of Naviant settlement net of expenses. Excluding these charges in the third quarter of 2008 and excluding the Naviant settlement in the third quarter of 2007 our operating income would have been $19.9 million and $22.2 million respectively. For the third quarter we had a loss per share of $0.07 versus earnings per share of $0.31 in 2007.EBITDA for the third quarter of 2008 was $9.2 million compared to $43 million in the third quarter of 2007. As of September 30, 2008, the company has incurred $19.7 million in legal expenses and professional fees related to the Derivative Litigation and the Special Committee s investigation, This includes $3 million spent in 2007 and $16.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.I will I will now turn the call back over to Bill Fairfield.Bill Fairfield Chief Executive OfficerThanks, Stormy. I will, with your blessing, I ll make a few other prepared remarks and then we ll open it up for Q I just want to stress a couple of the things that Stormy mentioned. If you look at the quarter and again, if you exclude the 2007 Naviant lawsuit settlement, revenue increased approximately 4%. And in today s environment with the headwinds that we re facing out there, we were not displeased with that.Also as Stormy mentioned, while we did have an operating loss in the third quarter of approximately $1.7 million, that included $21.6 million in unusual charges. Some of those charges, as Stormy outlined, were restructuring charges. We had some disposition of assets, some governance changes. And I don t think what we did talk about is when those are taken into account, we ve taken something on the order $7 million to$8 million worth of costs permanently out of the system. So, as discussed before, a tremendous amount of effort has gone into getting our house in order, if you will. And now is the time to move forward and take an in depth look at the business and the programs and determine where we need to go, which we ve already started to do.We have efforts moving forward to optimize the allocation of funds to spur organic growth within the Company. We re working as we speak to rationalize the business structure and streamline our go to market strategy. We have begun in a number of our operations to consolidate back office operations and we expect to see cost savings from that. And we re working to improve our efficiencies within the IT area.Now, we re very mindful that there are a lot of headwinds out there in the economy and we would be naive not to believe that at some point those won t impact us. The good news, as I said in the press release, is we re fortunate not to be dependent upon any particular sector, nor do we have a high concentration of customers in any one area. I think our largest client is probably less than 2% of our revenues. So, our customer base is broad and it s spread across all industry sectors and sizes, and we think that offers us some cushion.The other thing I think is important to note is that approximately 85% of our revenue comes from relationships that we have a view into. And by that, I mean these are relationships that are either subscriptions or they re licenses, or they re nike air max command contracts that may range from three months to multiple years. Now that doesn t mean that business can t be affected by the economy, but it s unlikely that we ll get surprised, that we ll have an early warning, if you will, if we begin to see any of those drop off. So, we are re preparing contingency plans for these uncertain times, but we feel confident in our position. All the initiatives that we talked about will help us get to where we need to be and, of course, increase shareholder value.In closing, I d like to thank each of you for weathering the storm with us. This is, in my opinion, a terrific company with a very positive future and you have my commitment of open and honest dialogue as we move this Company forward. We will endeavor to manage expectations and empower our colleagues to do what is right for you, our shareholders. I look forward to working together and leading the Company in this next chapter. It s going to be a good one in my opinion. So let s get started on answering questions. Chanel, we re ready.

At this time, for opening remarks and introductions, I would like to turn the conference over to Francisco Hoffmann, Investor Relations and Strategy. Please go ahead, sir.Thank you, operator. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Perry Ellis fourth quarter and full fiscal 2009 conference call. You should have received a copy of the press release that went out this morning, including the income statement and balance sheet. Such information is subject to risks and uncertainties as described in the press release and in documents that we have filed with the SEC.Joining us today for this call from nike air max 93 Perry Ellis are George Feldenkreis, Chairman and CEO; Oscar Feldenkreis, Vice Chairman, President and COO; and Anita Britt, our new Chief Financial Officer.I would like now to turn the call to Mr. George Feldenkreis, CEO. George.Thank you, Francisco. Good morning. A worse year in business finally came to an end on January 31st. At this stage, it is redundant to speak about the tremendous upheaval in the financial markets and the worldwide recession that is affecting almost every business sector around the globe.I would like to talk today about the reasons why our performance was below our expectation, while at the same time dissecting our results to explain how in the midst of a very bad year we still generated an EBITDA profit of $45 million. I will also focus on what we are doing to improve our performance this year and Oscar will provide details on the various business opportunities that we are growing and the many opportunities that lie ahead.Last fiscal year, we began with the acquisition of two contemporary ladies companies. At that time and to this day contemporary products are the best performing in the women s sector. While C California and Laundry by Shelli Segal are extraordinary brands, we found the companies in much worse shape that we could have ever expected or could have analyzed through the due diligence process. After the acquisition, we had to terminate the New York design team and move the Laundry creative process back to California, where it began, to regain the brand s flair and innovative design.We revamped the product line as well as the design and management looks. We expected this business to be accretive last year, but is actually (inaudible) unforeseen losses in the midst of a deteriorating economy.Another factor that affected our performance is the market disappearance of many men s specialty stores, which have been buffeted [ph] by higher rents, slower sales, and an inability to obtain credit insurance from the factory factoring organizations. This affected businesses like Axis and Tricots St. Raphael. We have substantially discontinued this business and avoided the losses this year that we had last year.Our retail businesses, which currently produce about 5% of total revenue, was affected by the general slowdown in consumer traffic and by the end of the year it became a loser rather than a winner. It ended the year with losses rather than being the profit maker it was the previous year. business, which represents another 5% of our business, has been a steady contributor in the past, was not profitable last year. We revamped the whole organization, hired new associates for the five top management positions and we have set a course that should make this operation profitable again.In licensing, we maintain our same level of revenues as last year. During the last 12 months we have strengthened considerably our licensing division with the hiring of a new President, an additional sales associate, and we look forward to growing our royalties and adding licensing partners in the year ahead.In the face of all these factors, we find it remarkable that we were able to finish the year with revenues of $851 million, only 1.5% below the previous year, when you compare it with drop in sales for most retailers, and with a gross margin that deteriorated by only 1% to 32.7% versus 33.8% last year as we consider that our markdowns went up by almost $10 million versus a year ago.As we analyze the performance of our business units, our core wholesale business platform performed well and not only generated the $45 million in EBITDA, but also covered for the losses in the business I enumerated before as well as the non recurring expenses associated with our restructuring initiative to reduce our expense (inaudible).On the SG side, our expenses increased by $21 million and this positive considering that $80 million of that amount were the SG expenses for the ladies contemporary business and a $4 million amount nike air max pink was for the additional eight retail stores opened. This means that our SG basically remained flat last year and will be lower this current year.For the current year, we are projecting a drop in revenues in the high single to low double digit range with a corresponding drop in gross profit in the low single digits. However, we are equipped to handle this drop with the measures we have taken to reduce our expense structure and focus in turning around the businesses that underperformed last year.I would like to share with you some of the thoughts on the impairment of brand issue, which is the mark to market of the apparel industry. During this quarter, we have taken impairments for $22 million, mostly related to the appraisal of some of our brands. Perry Ellis has invested $207 million acquiring brands. This portfolio of brands is independently appraised by a professional organization at over $375 million. However, accounting rules do not look at our portfolio of brands as a whole, as a basket.Each brand is appraised individually based on its current book of business. For example, a few years ago, Chanel or (inaudible) would have been appraised at a small fraction of their current value. While in the aggregates our brands generate an income that justify the same higher price that we pay for them individually, some of them do not. Consequently, to comply with the GAAP regulations, we took the required impairments. However, within the context of our total brand portfolio, the reality is that our brands continue to worse substantially more than when is reflected in our books.While we have decided not to give guidance for the year because of the uncertainties created by current economic situation, we project that the quarter ending this April 30th will be a profitable quarter.At this stage, we continue to be focused on positioning ourselves to take maximum advantage of the eventual reversal of the economic pendulum as well as to disappearance of some of our competitor. While our profits have been heavily impacted by the financial crisis this past year, we have taken the necessary steps to make sure that this Company continues nike free 5 its growth and increases its profitability going forward. We feel that our core businesses performed exceptionally well even in a dramatically hostile environment.Actually, what we call in our Company the periphery or the outside of our core business like outlets, men s specialty, contemporary women, and European operation, are what dragged our earnings down. We are committed to turning those businesses around and we know that all of them will do better this year. We have new management running this division and we are confident that as we focus on our efforts in these areas, they will become the contributing division within the next 24 month period.We have done it in the past. We have been able to turn around many of our businesses that today are very profitable and we confident that this time again we will succeed. These are difficult times, but we must remember that there are 140 million Americans receiving a check every week.We are confident that our business model, which contains diversified distribution channels, great sourcing and design capabilities, strong management and financial discipline, backed by superior information systems, and coupled with the commitment of our 2200 associates, will move our Company forward and will bring us to new heights in the years to come. Thank you. Oscar?Businesses such as swim, Hispanic brands, golf, denim, and Perry Ellis delivered outstanding results. However, this last holiday season was the most challenging I have experienced in my 20 plus year career in the apparel and retail industry. By now everybody is aware of the difficulties in the overall economy and particularly of retail during the fourth quarter. Rather than dwelling on the consumer environment, which other companies have discussed at length, I would like to talk about the trends we see in the market that favor Perry Ellis International in the year we are starting and the actions we are taking to benefit from these trends. These combinations of opportunities and actions will help Perry Ellis International to come out stronger cheap nike basketball shoes and better positioned within global economy rebounds.First, the consumer is still buying, not at the same level as last year s, but wherever there is newness and performance advantages, the consumer is still inclined to purchase. Excluding our replenishment programs and the exiting of our men s specialty store business, we shipped almost 16 million units during the fourth quarter, approximately the same number of units as the fourth quarter last year, despite a 10% reduction in net sales. Also, as last week s governmental retail reported detail during January and February of this year, overall retail sales were up, particularly at apparel stores, which reported a 2.8% increase in February.Second, diversification is a key advantage of our Company and a successful strategy in today s environment. While luxury specialty and department stores had a particularly challenging fourth quarter, some of them experienced double digit revenue decreases. Our brands grew new air max in the distribution channels that have better weathered the environment. Penney, we grew over 20% during the quarter and by 6% for the year, primarily driven by our golf, Hispanic, and niche businesses.

1 Chanel Reinterpretation of the Classic Flap Bag in Two Tone Lambskin I am loving the Chanel handbags all the time, whether it is the classic flap bag or the chanel 2.55 or the bag embossed with camellia details. The bag is graceful and practical, intellectual Chanel style. The bag I am going to introduce toady is a representation of the classic flap bag made by two tone lambskin. This medium bag is a great way to get the black/white 1980s graphic trend nike free runners while staying classic. This bag is made of supple top quality lambskin and soft fabric lining. It is carried with double straps made from silver chain interlaced with white leather. With a size of 103 x 63 x 2.53, the bag has one inside zipper pocket and one cell phone pockets for your convenience. In all, this bag assumes a different take on the classic flap. Black and white are the most timeless color matching. It was the most popular color in the fashion kingdom and still is and will always be. Fashion is like fashion being. It needs not to be very air max 93 eye catching, but eye pleasing and functional is essential, otherwise it will pass away as soon as possible. The black and white color setting can not mens nike air max 90 only reminds you of the pure old good day, but also indicates the natural and peaceful future. Another unique factor about this bag is the shape. It is long rectangular, different nike free 3.0 womens from all previous Chanel handbags. It seems like a relatively larger bag, but actually it is definitely not as large as you suppose. Unlike the conventional square like Chanel bag such as the Chanel Grand shopping nike free shop tote, the Petite shopping tote and the Chanel Portobello tote, its shape will bring you a sense of slim and slender. With the white on the top and the black on the bottom, the bag won t be stained easily. You of course deserve the companionship of this classic Chanel bag.
