The New York-based company, whose brands include Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, posted a non-GAAP profit of $89.6 million, or $1.23 a share, for its fiscal first quarter ended on May 1 with revenue totaling $1.37 billion. In the same period a year earlier, Philips-Van Heusen reported equivalent earnings of $44.8 million, or 83 cents a share, on revenue of $619 million. The average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters was for a profit of $1.16 a share on revenue of $1.34 billion in the three-month period.
The stock was last quoted at $67.40, up 2.2%, on volume of more than 200,000, according to Nasdaq.com. Based on a regular session close at $65.97, the shares were up 5.7% so far in 2011. Over the past year, the stock has risen 22% but it's down 9% since hitting a 52-week high of $72.42 on Dec. 3. "We are very pleased with our first quarter results," said Emanuel Chirico, the company's chairman and CEO, in a statement. "The positive business trends in our Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein businesses accelerated in the first quarter, allowing us to exceed both our revenue and non-GAAP earnings guidance." The company said total revenue from its Calvin Klein business rose 17% in the quarter to $281.1 million, while its Tommy Hilfiger unit generated revenue of $715.4 million as it experienced much better than anticipated growth in both Europe and North America. Philips-Van Heusen said it expects non-GAAP earnings of 93 to 95 cents a share in the second quarter, and $4.80 to $5 a share for the full year. The current consensus estimates are for earnings of 91 cents a share, and $4.90 a share, respectively.
