Perry Ellis International Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

Perry Ellis International (NASDAQ:PERY) today reported results for the third quarter ended October 27, 2012 (“third quarter of fiscal 2013”).

Third Quarter Results from Operations

In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, total revenues were $236.2 million compared to $248.4 million in the quarter ended October 29, 2011 (“third quarter of fiscal 2012”) and in-line with Company guidance of an expected mid-single digit decrease. The Company noted that continued growth within golf, direct to consumer and women’s contemporary was offset by planned decreases in its Perry Ellis and Rafaella collection businesses.

Oscar Feldenkreis, President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, “The third quarter was highlighted by continued positive momentum in our Golf and direct to consumer platforms, substantial progress on our initiatives to improve our Perry Ellis and Rafaella collection businesses and the disciplined management of expenses and continued strong cash flow. We are very pleased with the growth we are driving across our golf platforms through all channels of distribution. Across our direct to consumer business we are generating consistent sales and margin increases fueled by our unique products and focused merchandising planning by door. We are well on our way with our repositioning efforts in our Perry Ellis and Rafaella collection businesses, and expect an improved consumer response to our holiday collections in the fourth quarter and an even greater positive impact in spring 2013.”

Gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was 32.1% as compared to 33.2% for the comparable period last year. The decline was attributable to higher promotional levels in the collection businesses coupled with the lower margins on the Callaway transitioned businesses. On the positive side, gross margin expansion was realized in the golf business, as well as in the direct to consumer business.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased $2.4 million to $64.0 million compared to $66.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company remains disciplined in this area as it executes its streamlining and consolidating initiatives.
