Carter's, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

A reconciliation of income as reported under GAAP to adjusted income is provided at the end of this release.

Cash flow from operations in the first nine months of fiscal 2012 was $129.2 million compared to cash flow used in operations of $85.8 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2011. The increase was primarily due to favorable net changes in working capital and increased earnings.

Business Segment Results

Carter’s Segments

Carter’s retail segment sales increased $98.5 million, or 21.2%, to $563.8 million, driven by incremental sales of $53.5 million generated by new store openings and $35.7 million from eCommerce sales, and a comparable store sales increase of $14.1 million, or 3.4%. This growth was partially offset by a sales decrease of $4.8 million attributed to store closings. In the first nine months of fiscal 2012, the Company opened 47 Carter’s retail stores and closed eight.

Carter’s wholesale segment sales increased $16.6 million, or 2.4%, to $719.6 million, principally reflecting growth in the Company's Carter's and Child of Mine brands, partially offset by lower off-price channel sales.

OshKosh B’gosh Segments

OshKosh retail segment sales increased $2.8 million, or 1.5%, to $194.4 million, driven by incremental sales of $9.0 million generated by eCommerce and $1.9 million generated by new store openings, partially offset by a decrease of $7.8 million attributed to store closings and a comparable store sales decrease of $0.3 million, or 0.2%. In the first nine months of fiscal 2012, the Company opened three OshKosh retail stores and closed six.

OshKosh wholesale segment sales were $61.3 million, comparable to the prior-year period.

International Segment
