HanesBrands Reports Second-Quarter 2012 Results

EBITDA is defined as earnings from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Although the company does not use EBITDA to manage its business, it believes that EBITDA is another way that investors measure financial performance. See Table 2 attached to this press release to reconcile EBITDA to the GAAP measure of net income from continuing operations.

Hanes has chosen to provide these measures to investors to enable additional analyses of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means of evaluating company operations. Non-GAAP information should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP or other pro forma measures used by other companies.

Webcast Conference Call

Hanes will host a live Internet webcast of its quarterly investor conference call at 4:30 p.m. EDT today. The broadcast may be accessed on the home page of the HanesBrands corporate website, The call is expected to conclude by 5:30 p.m.

An archived replay of the conference call webcast will be available in the investors section of the HanesBrands website. A telephone playback will be available from approximately midnight EDT today through midnight EDT Aug. 7, 2012. The replay will be available by calling toll-free (855) 859-2056, or by toll call at (404) 537-3406. The replay pass code is 12858065.

¹ As a result of the reduced size of sheer hosiery and changing trends, HanesBrands decided in the first quarter of 2012 to change its external segment reporting to include hosiery operations within the Innerwear segment. Hosiery had previously been reported as a separate segment. Prior-year segment sales and operating profit results, including other minor allocation changes, have been revised to conform to the current-year presentation. In addition, in May 2012, HanesBrands sold its European imagewear business, and the Company is completing the discontinuation of its private label and Outer Banks domestic imagewear operations serving wholesalers that sell to the screen-print industry. As a result, the current year and prior-year segment disclosures do not reflect the sales and operating profit results of these discontinued businesses.
² Earnings from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization is a non-GAAP financial measure.
