- Q4 2015 preliminary comparable sales and updated full year non-GAAP adjusted EPS(1) outlook

- Q4 2015 and full year financial results release scheduled for March 9th and conference call scheduled for March 10th

FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE: TLRD), today provided preliminary comparable sales results for the fiscal fourth quarter ended January 30, 2016, as well as updated guidance regarding adjusted EPS for fiscal year 2015.  These results are based on information available to the Company as of the date of this release and are subject to revision upon finalization of the quarterly and year-end accounting and financial reporting procedures.  Actual fiscal fourth quarter results will be reported on March 9, 2016 with a conference call the next morning, March 10, 2016.

Comparable sales increased 4.3% at Men's Wearhouse with clothing comps of 4.3% driven by an increase in average unit retail and tuxedo comps of 4.7%.  Jos. A. Bank comparable sales decreased 31.9% primarily due to a decline in average transactions per store.  K&G comparable sales increased 1.9% driven by units per transaction offset somewhat by lower average transactions per store.  Moores comparable sales decreased 2.7% primarily driven by weakening macro-economic conditions in Canada. 

Based on these preliminary results, the Company estimates that adjusted EPS for fiscal 2015 will be near the bottom of the previously announced guidance range of $1.75 to $2.00, excluding non-operating items and non-cash impairment charges.  Please note that due to recent results for Jos. A. Bank, the Company is performing its annual impairment testing, which is likely to result in a significant non-cash impairment charge. When we publish our final results in March, we will include a reconciliation of our GAAP results to our non-GAAP adjusted results.

As previously announced, Tailored Brands is in the midst of a comprehensive profit enhancement project for 2016 and beyond. This project includes a near term focus on right-sizing the store base and cost structure of its Jos. A. Bank business, a multi-year plan to restore brand health and sales at Jos. A. Bank, as well as a fresh look at re-engineering other parts of the Tailored Brands portfolio. The Company is actively engaged in implementing these initiatives.

Doug Ewert, chief executive officer of Tailored Brands, stated, "While we are pleased that our Men's Wearhouse, Moores and K&G brands continue to perform well, management has been, and continues to be, focused on creating long term sustainable and profitable results at Jos. A. Bank.  Although we have seen improvement since the holiday selling season, we are still not satisfied. We are taking actions to reduce costs and rationalize the store base. We have also identified opportunities and begun the work to improve efficiency with positive results in other areas of our portfolio. We will be providing details on these initiatives in our fourth quarter earnings release on March 9th and conference call on March 10th respectively."
