Bath & Body Works, Inc.

Exceeds Second Quarter Earnings Per Share Guidance and Increases Earnings Per Share Outlook for the Full‐Year 2023

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bath & Body Works, Inc. (NYSE: BBWI) today reported second quarter 2023 results.

Gina Boswell, CEO of Bath & Body Works, commented, “In the second quarter, we delivered net sales in line with our expectations, and the early benefits of our cost optimization and merchandise margin improvement initiatives helped drive earnings which outperformed our expectations. Our team remained agile in response to the dynamic macroeconomic environment, with a focus on delivering innovation and building capabilities to position our company for topline growth and margin expansion. We are executing well against a diverse set of opportunities within our key areas of focus, which will enable us to better serve our customers, drive profitable growth and create long-term value for our stakeholders.”

ANNUNCIO PUBBLICITARIO

Second Quarter 2023 Results

The company reported net sales of $1.559 billion for the second quarter ended July 29, 2023, a decrease of 3.6% compared to net sales of $1.618 billion for the second quarter ended July 30, 2022.

The company reported earnings per diluted share of $0.43 for the second quarter of 2023, compared to $0.52 for the same period of the prior year. Second quarter operating income was $188 million compared to $242 million last year, and net income was $99 million compared to $120 million last year.

Reported second quarter 2023 net income includes a $9 million pre‐tax gain ($7 million after‐tax gain) associated with the early extinguishment of debt, resulting from the open market repurchase and retirement of $115 million principal amount of the company’s senior notes during the second quarter.

Excluding the gain on the early extinguishment of debt, adjusted second quarter 2023 earnings per diluted share were $0.40 and adjusted net income was $92 million.

At the conclusion of this press release is a reconciliation of reported‐to‐adjusted results.

2023 Outlook

The company has updated its full‐year forecast to reflect better-than-expected bottom line results in the second quarter, the impact of debt and share repurchases in the second quarter and narrowed sales expectations for the fiscal year.

For fiscal 2023, the company expects net sales to decline 1.5% to 3.5% compared to $7.560 billion in 2022. The company now expects full-year 2023 earnings per diluted share to be between $2.85 and $3.15, compared to $3.40 in 2022. The company expects full-year 2023 adjusted earnings per diluted share to be between $2.80 and $3.10. The company’s adjusted earnings per diluted share forecast excludes the gain on the early extinguishment of debt associated with the open market repurchase and retirement of $199 million principal amount of the company’s senior notes through the end of the second quarter.

Fiscal 2023 will include a 53rd week, with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 consisting of 14 weeks. The company’s full-year outlook includes the impact of the 53rd week, estimated at 7 cents per diluted share.

The company expects third quarter net sales to decline 2.5% to 4.0% compared to $1.604 billion in the third quarter of 2022. Third quarter earnings per diluted share are expected to be between $0.30 and $0.40, compared to $0.40 earnings per diluted share in the third quarter of 2022.

The company’s third quarter and full-year outlook exclude the impact of any future debt or share repurchase activity.

NOTES TO RECONCILIATION OF GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(Unaudited)

The “Adjusted Financial Information” provided in the attached reflects the following non-GAAP financial measures:

Fiscal 2023

In the second quarter of 2023, adjusted results exclude a:

  • $9 million pre-tax gain ($7 million net of tax of $2 million), included in other income, associated with the early extinguishment of outstanding notes.

In the first quarter of 2023, adjusted results exclude a:

  • $7 million pre-tax gain ($5 million net of tax of $2 million), included in other income, associated with the early extinguishment of outstanding notes.

Forecasted full-year 2023 adjusted results exclude the following:

  • A $16 million pre-tax gain ($12 million net of tax of $4 million), included in other income year-to-date through the second quarter of 2023, associated with the early extinguishment of outstanding notes.

  • The impact of any future debt or share repurchase activity.

Fiscal 2022

In the first and second quarters of 2022, there were no adjustments to results.

The adjusted financial information should not be construed as an alternative to the results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Further, the company’s definitions of adjusted income information may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies. Management believes that the presentation of adjusted financial information provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations. While it is not possible to predict future results, management believes the adjusted financial information is useful for the assessment of the operations of the company because the adjusted items are not indicative of the company’s ongoing operations due to their size and nature. Additionally, management uses adjusted financial information as key performance measures for the purpose of evaluating performance internally. The adjusted financial information should be read in conjunction with the company’s historical financial statements and notes thereto contained in the company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Annual Report on Form 10-K.

“Total international system-wide retail sales” means the net sales of all Bath & Body Works stores and digital channels located outside North America and owned and/or operated by the company’s franchise, license and wholesale partners. While total international system-wide retail sales are not recorded as net sales by the company, management believes the information is important in understanding the company’s financial performance because these sales are the basis on which the company calculates and records certain net sales for its International business and are indicative of the financial health of the company’s franchise, license and wholesale partners and the prospects for growth of the company’s International business.
