PVH Corp. affirmed its existing fourth-quarter and full-year guidance for sales and profits as it sought to amend its credit facility in order to redeem $600 million in senior notes due in 2020.
PVH said it is seeking to amend the credit facility in which it entered last February, as it completed its acquisition of Warnaco Group, and realize at least $600 million in cash proceeds by doing so. The funds, along with cash on hand, would be used to redeem the senior notes, which carry interest of 7.375 percent. PVH hopes to close on the transaction by the end of March and lower its interest expense for fiscal 2014 and beyond.
In entering into negotiations about the credit facility, PVH held to its most recent projections for the recently completed fiscal year. In January, PVH affirmed its guidance for fourth-quarter earnings of $1.40 and full-year earnings of $7 a diluted share for the periods ended Feb. 2. However, it lowered its revenue guidance to $2.06 billion, from $2.08 billion, for the quarter and $8.22 billion, from $8.24 billion, for the year. Its initial guidance came as it reported third-quarter results on Dec. 9.
PVH said that it repaid $500 million of its term loans under its credit facility during fiscal 2013, above the $400 million anticipated.
PVH owns the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen and Izod trademarks and markets apparel under a series of other owned and licensed marks.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
