HanesBrands Raises 2013 EPS Outlook Based On Early Prepayment Of $250 Million Of 8% Senior Notes Due 2016

For 2013, the prepayment of bonds will reduce interest expense, although a resulting higher tax rate will partially offset the benefits. The company expects interest expense of approximately $120 million in 2013, which includes approximately $15 million in expected prepayment expenses and accelerated noncash unamortized debt costs to retire the remaining $250 million of 8 percent notes in 2013. As a result, Hanes has increased its 2013 EPS guidance from the low $3 range to expectations of $3.25 to $3.40. Net sales are expected to be approximately $4.6 billion to $4.7 billion, and free cash flow is expected to be $300 million to $400 million.

The company does not intend to speak in more detail about its 2013 guidance until the release of its fourth-quarter and full-year 2012 results.

Note on Non-GAAP Terms and Definitions

Free cash flow, EBITDA, and the ratio of long-term debt to EBITDA are not generally accepted accounting principle measures.

Free cash flow is defined as cash from operations less net capital expenditures. Free cash flow may not be representative of the amount of residual cash flow that is available to the company for discretionary expenditures since it may not include deductions for mandatory debt-service requirements and other nondiscretionary expenditures. The company believes, however, that free cash flow is a useful measure of the cash-generating ability of the business relative to capital expenditures and financial performance. For 2013 guidance, net cash provided by operating activities (a GAAP measure) is expected to be between $350 million and $450 million and net capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $50 million, resulting in expectations for free cash flow of $300 million to $400 million.

The ratio of long-term debt to EBITDA is calculated by dividing long-term debt (a GAAP measure) by EBITDA, which is defined as earnings from continuing operations before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization. On a forward-looking basis, the company is unable to quantify certain amounts without unreasonable efforts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP measure to EBITDA.
