ATLANTA, April 29, 2022 - Carter’s, Inc. (NYSE:CRI), the largest branded marketer in North America of apparel exclusively for babies and young children, today reported its first quarter fiscal 2022 results.
“Our first quarter sales and earnings exceeded our expectations,” said Michael D. Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Inventory levels improved in the quarter and enabled us to support higher demand in our wholesale and international businesses. As expected, our retail sales were lower in the quarter and reflect the impact of store closures, timing of the Easter holiday, and non-recurring benefit realized last year from the unprecedented government stimulus which supported families with young children.
“We are encouraged by the improving trend in births in the United States which began last summer. We believe our leading position in the young children’s apparel market and unparalleled multi-channel business model will enable us to build on our strong performance last year and achieve our growth objectives for 2022.”

Consolidated Results
First Quarter of Fiscal 2022 compared to First Quarter of Fiscal 2021
Net sales decreased $6.1 million, or 0.8%, to $781.3 million, reflecting growth in the Company’s U.S. Wholesale and International segments, offset by lower sales in its U.S. Retail segment.
U.S. Wholesale and International net sales grew 8% and 11%, respectively. U.S. Retail net sales declined 10%, reflecting: 1) comparison to first quarter of 2021 which benefited from significant and unprecedented government stimulus payments made to consumers in response to the pandemic; 2) 113 fewer retail stores at the beginning of the quarter; and 3) a later Easter holiday. U.S. Retail comparable sales declined 7%.
Operating income decreased $24.9 million to $102.6 million, compared to $127.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating margin decreased to 13.1%, compared to 16.2% in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income (a non-GAAP measure) decreased $25.9 million to $102.6 million, compared to $128.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted operating margin was 13.1%, compared to 16.3% in the prior year period, largely due to higher ocean freight and transportation costs.
Net income decreased $18.3 million to $67.9 million, or $1.66 per diluted share, compared to $86.2 million, or $1.96 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure) decreased $19.1 million to $67.9 million, compared to $87.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal
2


2021. Adjusted earnings per diluted share (a non-GAAP measure) was $1.66, compared to $1.98 in the first quarter of fiscal 2021.
Net cash used in operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 was $163.8 million compared to net cash used in operations of $39.5 million in the prior-year period. The increase in net cash used in operating activities principally reflects earlier receipt of inventory to help mitigate pandemic-related transportation delays and disbursements for 2021 performance-based compensation.
See the “Business Segment Results” and “Reconciliation of Adjusted Results to GAAP” sections of this release for additional disclosures regarding business segment performance and non-GAAP measures.
Return of Capital Activity
In the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company returned to shareholders a total of $105.1 million through share repurchases and cash dividends as described below.
During the first quarter, the Company repurchased and retired 0.8 million shares of its common stock for $74.5 million at an average price of $93.94 per share. Fiscal year-to-date through April 28, 2022, the Company repurchased and retired 1.1 million shares for $104.5 million at an average price of $92.66 per share. As of April 28, 2022, the total remaining capacity under the Company’s previously-announced repurchase authorizations was approximately $945 million.
In the first quarter, the Company paid a cash dividend of $0.75 per common share totaling $30.6 million. Future payments of quarterly dividends will be at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors based on a number of factors, including the Company’s future financial performance and other considerations.
Debt Redemption / Refinancing Update
On April 4, 2022, the Company redeemed $500 million principal amount of its 5.500% senior notes using cash on hand. This debt redemption is estimated to result in a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $20 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. Our adjusted diluted earnings per share forecasts described below in “2022 Business Outlook” exclude this estimated charge. We continue to evaluate the opportunity to refinance our 5.625% senior notes in 2022, subject to market conditions, which may result in additional charges related to loss on extinguishment of debt.
2022 Business Outlook
For the second quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company projects:
Net sales of approximately $750 million to $775 million;
3


Adjusted operating income of approximately $95 million to $105 million, compared to $110.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021; and
Adjusted diluted earnings per share of approximately $1.60 to $1.80 (which excludes an estimated loss on extinguishment of debt of $20 million), compared to $1.67 in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
This outlook for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 reflects:
Continued improvement in supply chain performance;
Less challenging comparisons to 2021 stimulus;
Improved price realization;
Higher labor costs, marketing investments, and distribution and freight expenses;
Lower interest expense; and
Benefit of share repurchases.
For fiscal 2022, the Company is reaffirming its prior guidance and continues to project:
Net sales increase of approximately 2% to 3%, with growth in all segments;
Adjusted operating income increase of approximately 4% to 6%, compared to $500.8 million in fiscal 2021; and
Adjusted diluted earnings per share increase of approximately 12% to 14% (which excludes an estimated loss on extinguishment of debt of $20 million), compared to $7.87 in fiscal 2021.
This outlook for fiscal 2022 reflects:
An improving trend in births in the United States;
The strength of our merchandising and marketing initiatives;
Better mix of inventories;
Improved price realization;
Gradual improvement in supply chain performance;
SG&A leverage;
Lower interest expense; and
Benefit of share repurchases.
We have not reconciled forward-looking adjusted operating income or adjusted diluted earnings per share to their most directly comparable GAAP measures because we cannot predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain components of such reconciliations, including early extinguishment of debt that are not within our control including due to factors described above, or others that may arise, without unreasonable effort. For these reasons, we are unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable

information, which could materially impact the amount of future operating income or diluted EPS, the most directly comparable GAAP metrics to adjusted operating income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, respectively.

c.Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal quarter ended April 3, 2021 excludes a customer bankruptcy recovery of $38,000.

Note: No adjustments were made to GAAP results in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. Results may not be additive due to rounding.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures that are not defined or prepared in accordance with GAAP. We define EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for the items described in footnotes (a) - (c) to the table above.

We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we consider them important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. These measures also afford investors a view of what management considers to be the Company's core performance.

The use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA instead of net income or cash flows from operations has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent net income or cash flow from operations as those terms are defined by GAAP and do not necessarily indicate whether cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. While EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and similar measures are frequently used as measures of operations and the ability to meet debt service requirements, these terms are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters that we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations. Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as discretionary cash available to us for working capital, debt service and other purposes.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP INFORMATION
(dollars in millions)
(unaudited)

The table below reflects the calculation of constant currency net sales on a consolidated and International segment basis for the fiscal quarter ended April 2, 2022:
Fiscal Quarter Ended

April 2, 2022
Impact of Foreign Currency TranslationConstant-Currency Net Sales
April 2, 2022
Reported Net Sales
April 3, 2021
Reported Net Sales % ChangeConstant-Currency Net Sales % Change
Consolidated net sales$781.3 $(0.2)$781.5 $787.4 (0.8)%(0.7)%
International segment net sales$107.6 $(0.2)$107.8 $96.9 11.0 %11.2 %

The Company evaluates its net sales on both an “as reported” and a “constant currency” basis.  The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates that occurred between the comparative periods.  Constant currency net sales results are calculated by translating current period net sales in local currency to the U.S. dollar amount by using the currency conversion rate for the prior comparative period.  The Company consistently applies this approach to net sales for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar.  The Company believes that the presentation of net sales on a constant currency basis provides useful supplemental information regarding changes in our net sales that were not due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates and such information is consistent with how the Company assesses changes in its net sales between comparative periods.
Note: Results may not be additive due to rounding.
