Management Comment

Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, stated: “Our balanced and diversified mix of businesses, products and markets – along with our strategic efforts to grow in areas such as branded products and activewear – drove solid momentum in sales and earnings in the 2015 first quarter.. And we are investing in new products and resources to drive sustained profitable growth and long-term shareholder value.”

“The strongest contributors to our sales growth globally have been North America, Germany and Israel. Branded products continue to contribute a larger proportion of our sales, reflecting our strategy to grow this aspect of our business in recent years. We also are benefitting from our focus on activewear, which is one of the fastest growing segments of the apparel industry, and where our strengths in seamless products and innovative fabrics provide Delta Galil with a sharp competitive edge.”

“Delta Galil’s performance in 2015 will benefit from new products and licensing relationships with leading brands that we have launched during the first quarter of 2015, such as Lacoste and Marc O'Polo. In Activewear, we have licenses with Avia and Kenneth Cole, and a design and manufacturing agreement with Asics, among others. We also are continuing to invest in additional manufacturing capacity, as well as in our retail stores in Europe and Israel. And, with a solid cash position of $145.3 million, we have the financial resources to support our investments in innovation, growth and progress.”

EBITDA, Cash Flow, Net Debt, Equity and Dividend

EBITDA was $19.6 million or 7.8% of sales in the 2015 first quarter, increasing 3% compared with $19.0 million or 8.0 % of sales in the same quarter of 2014.

Operating cash flow was negative $19.8 million in the 2015 first quarter, versus negative $6.6 million in the same period of 2014. The increase in the negative operating cash flow in the 2015 first quarter was due to a $33.5 million increase in working capital, compared with a moderate working capital increase of $18.7 million in the same quarter of 2014, reflecting the seasonality of the business.

Net financial debt as of March 31, 2015 was $83.7 million, compared to $83.2 million as of March 31, 2014 and $64.5 million as of December 31, 2014. The increase in the net financial debt as of March 31, 2015 compared to December 31, 2014 is attributed mainly to the negative operating cash flow.

The net financial debt to EBITDA ratio remained unchanged at 0.9 for both the first quarter of 2015 and 2014.

Equity on March 31, 2015 was $328.2 million, compared to $328.6 million a year earlier.

Delta Galil declared a dividend of $3.5 million, or $0.139 per share, to be distributed on May 28, 2015. The determining and "ex-dividend" date will be May 19, 2015, per the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
