Hanesbrands has been reeling under rising inflation and elevated freight cost to support new retail space gains and product innovation. The company has been grappling with COVID-induced supply-chain logistic headwinds. These, along with the war in Eastern Europe, are likely to have dented the second-quarter performance.
The company has been exposed to unfavorable currency fluctuations, owing to its international presence. The weakening of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar is likely to have been concerning. On its last reported quarter’s earnings call, management expected second-quarter 2022 net sales from continuing operations to include an adverse impact of $40 million from currency movements. However, the company’s Full Potential plan, which includes growing the global Champion brand, re-igniting innerwear growth, driving consumer-centricity and focusing on the portfolio, bodes well. Strength in Hanesbrands’ Champion brand has been a key growth driver. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for sales in the Innerwear segment is pegged at $746 million, which suggests an improvement from the $579 million reported in the prior quarter. Also, management has been streamlining the portfolio, shedding non-core lower-margin businesses and lowering skews for business simplification. Investments in data analytics and supply-chain improvements to fuel growth, enhanced consumer brand experience, reduced costs and improved efficiencies are expected to have provided some cushion to the stock.
