Tiffany Reports Its Second Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: TIF

Outlook for 2013:

For the fiscal year ending January 31, 2014, management now forecasts net earnings in a range of $3.50-$3.60 per diluted share, compared with $3.43-$3.53 per diluted share in its previous outlook and $3.25 per diluted share in 2012. This forecast is based on the following assumptions, which are approximate and may or may not prove valid:

a) Worldwide net sales increasing by a mid-single-digit percentage in U.S dollars (a high-single-digit percentage increase on a constant-exchange-rate basis).

b) Adding a net of 14 Company-operated stores (opening six in the Americas, seven in Asia-Pacific and three in Europe, and closing one each in Asia-Pacific and Japan).

c) Operating earnings increasing at a higher rate than sales growth. This assumes gross margin at least equal to the prior year (the benefits from favorable product costs and price increases being offset by sales mix skewed toward higher-priced, lower margin product categories), and an improvement in the SG&A expense ratio due to sales leverage on fixed costs.

d) Interest and other expenses, net of $58 million.

e) An effective income tax rate of 35%.

f) This forecast excludes $0.05 per diluted share of expenses tied to specific cost-reduction initiatives that were recorded in the first quarter.

g) Net inventories increasing 5%; capital expenditures of $230 million (versus $220 million in 2012); and free cash flow (cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures) of $300 million (versus $109 million in 2012).
