NEW YORK — Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. on Tuesday raised earnings guidance for the year and second quarter, which followed its disclosure that insiders would sell nearly 6.4 million shares in a secondary common stock offering.
The shares are held by affiliates of Apax Managers Inc., which were issued the Series B Convertible Preferred stock in connection with the company's acquisition of Calvin Klein in February 2003. PVH will not receive any proceeds from the offering. The apparel firm also will pay Apax $11.2 million, representing the net present value of the dividends that PVH would have been obligated to pay through the earliest date to convert the Series B stock. PVH is responsible for paying the offering costs, estimated at $1 million.
PVH upped its full year 2005 earnings guidance, with diluted earnings per share now pegged between $1.53 and $1.58, including the costs related to the offering, on a revenue base of $1.81 billion to $1.83 billion. Excluding the costs associated with the offering, diluted EPS is estimated at $1.70 and $1.75. Previous diluted EPS guidance was $1.68 to $1.73 on revenues of $1.8 billion to $1.82 billion.
For the second quarter, diluted EPS is estimated at between 17 cents and 18 cents, including offering costs, on revenues of $430 million to $435 million. Diluted EPS is estimated at 40 cents to 41 cents, excluding offering costs, versus the previous guidance of diluted EPS at 38 cents to 39 cents on revenues of $420 million to $425 million.
PVH said in a statement that if current trends in its business were to continue, the company would exceed its revised 2005 second-quarter estimates. And even though PVH has not revised its second-half outlook, the company said it would expect to exceed those estimates should current trends continue into the third and fourth quarters.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
