Ralph Lauren Corporation Announces Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the Second Quarter and Half Year Ended September 27, 2014; Revises Financial Guidance for the Fiscal 2015; Provides Financial Guidance for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2015

Ralph Lauren Corporation announced unaudited consolidated financial results for the second quarter and half year ended September 27, 2014. For the quarter, net sales were $1,949 million against $1,872 million a year ago. Net revenues were $1,994 million against $1,915 million a year ago. Operating income was $286 million against $295 million a year ago. Income before provision for income taxes was $278 million against $288 million a year ago. Net income was $201 million against $205 million a year ago. Net income per diluted share was $2.25 against $2.23 a year ago. Net revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 increased 4% led by retail segment expansion, including double-digit international growth. The company had $91 million in capital expenditures in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to $148 million in the prior year period. For the half year, net sales were $3,617 million against $3,486 million a year ago. Net revenues were $3,702 million against $3,568 million a year ago. Operating income was $530 million against $571 million a year ago. Income before provision for income taxes was $513 million against $553 million a year ago. Net income was $363 million against $386 million a year ago. Net income per diluted share was $4.05 against $4.17 a year ago. The company is maintaining its constant dollar outlook for fiscal 2015. However, as a result of recent, unfavorable foreign currency movements, the company now expects consolidated net revenues for fiscal 2015 to increase by 5%-7% compared to its previous outlook of 6%-8% growth. The fiscal 2015 operating margin is still estimated to be approximately 75-125 basis points below fiscal 2014 level, likely at the mid-to-low end of that range due to incrementally negative foreign currency movements. The full year fiscal 2015 tax rate is estimated at 30%. In the third quarter of fiscal 2015, the company expects consolidated net revenues to increase by 3%-5%, including a 200 basis point net negative impact from foreign currency translation. Operating margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 is expected to be approximately 100-150 basis points below the comparable prior year period due to higher cost of goods and incremental investments in the Company's strategic growth objectives. The third quarter tax rate is estimated at 30%.

Nike Fights Converse Knockoffs

Converse is suing Skechers USA, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., FILA, Ed Hardy, K-Mart Corp. and Ralph Lauren Corp., among many others. It says the companies are infringing on trademarks that cover the look of the shoe and the diamond pattern on the bottom of the sole. The North Andover, Mass., company filed its lawsuits in the Eastern District of New York and in the International Trade Commission. Converse says look-alike Chuck Taylor shoes have become more common in recent years, and says it has served about 180 cease-and-desist letters related to the issue since 2008.
