"Famous Footwear delivered its seventh consecutive year of positive back-to-school same-store-sales, while Brand Portfolio showed sales improvement of 8.5%, as our top brands continued to take consumer share in the market"

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Caleres (NYSE: CAL)(caleres.com), a diverse portfolio of global footwear brands, today reported third quarter 2018 financial results.

“Famous Footwear delivered its seventh consecutive year of positive back-to-school same-store-sales, while Brand Portfolio showed sales improvement of 8.5%, as our top brands continued to take consumer share in the market,” said Diane Sullivan, CEO, president and chairman of Caleres. “In addition, we announced the acquisition of Vionic, a strong consumer demand brand, which has demonstrated solid growth over the past six years and is expected to be accretive to adjusted EPS in 2019.

“We also continued to accelerate the transition to our in-house distribution center for Brand Portfolio. While our in-house facility is up and running efficiently, the third-party facility expense has been far greater than expected,” continued Sullivan. “In an effort to eliminate the potential for incremental expense going forward, we have committed to exiting this third-party facility immediately following fiscal 2018 shipping. Due to these expenses, and our recent Vionic acquisition, we are updating our 2018 adjusted earnings per share guidance.

“We now expect to report fiscal 2018 adjusted earnings per share of between $2.25 and $2.35, and this range includes approximately $0.05 of dilution related to Vionic interest and amortization expense. This acquisition – along with other actions we have taken this year – is part of our strategy to invest for continued success, and our plans remain on-track,” concluded Sullivan.

Pension Presentation

Results for this year reflect the new accounting standard related to the presentation of retirement benefits, which impacted reported and adjusted 2017 operating income and margin. The effect of this new standard resulted in a shift of $2.5 million of retirement plan income from third quarter 2017 SG&A expense to other income, net. For the nine months of 2017, this amount was $7.6 million. There was no impact to net earnings or earnings per share for the third quarter or first nine months of 2017, due to the adoption of this standard.
