Hanesbrands' CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Transcript

Please also note, Hanesbrands recently announced exiting certain international and domestic imagewear businesses that are now classified as discontinued operations and as noted in today’s press release, additional information will be in our 10-Q and has been provided in the Investors section of our website. Unless otherwise noted, today’s speakers will be discussing our performance from our continuing operations.

With me on the call today are Rich Noll, our Chief Executive Officer; Gerald Evans, one of our two Co-Chief Operating Officers; and Rick Moss, our Chief Financial Officer. For today’s call, Rich will highlight a few of our accomplishments through the first half of the year, Gerald will provide a sense of what is happening in a few of our businesses, and Rick will emphasize some of the financial aspects of our results.

I will now turn the call over to Rich.

Rich Noll

Thank you, Charlie. When we started the year we outlined two goals, to successfully manage through the cotton bubble and to derisk our business. When you look at this quarter’s solid results, you will see we’re making good progress towards both. We’ve accomplished much over the past six months and remain pleased with sales, profit and cash flow, all running at or better than our plans. And in fact from an EPS basis, we’re running a little over a dime ahead of where we thought would be at mid-year and I am sure somebody will ask me about that in the Q&A section.

So let’s start with an update on our efforts to derisk our business and then follow with how our core business is navigating the cotton bubble. First let me speak to the major actions we’ve undertaken to reduce risk and volatility in the imagewear category. In May, we announced our plans to sell the European imagewear operations and to exit private label and Outer Banks in the U.S. These moves allow us to devote our energy and resources to our branded businesses while removing volatility inherent in the sectors we exited.
