COLUMBUS, Ohio--()--Express, Inc. (NYSE:EXPR), a specialty retail apparel company, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2017. These results, which cover the fourteen and fifty-three weeks ended February 3, 2018, are compared to the thirteen and fifty-two weeks ended January 28, 2017. Comparable sales for the fourth quarter and full year 2017 were calculated using the fourteen and fifty-three week periods ended February 3, 2018, as compared to the fourteen and fifty-three week periods ended February 4, 2017.

David Kornberg, the Company's president and chief executive officer, noted that, "While our overall 2017 full year results were below plan, our performance showed improvement over the course of the year, as our key initiatives gained traction. We were particularly pleased with the performance of our e-commerce business, which continues its significant growth and accounted for over $500 million in sales in 2017. We are confident that our strategy will continue to yield improved results and believe that Express is uniquely positioned to capture opportunities presented by the ongoing retail industry transformation. For 2018, we are focused on delivering compelling product, growing our customer base and brand awareness, and pursuing double-digit growth in our e-commerce business. In addition, we will continue to expand our omni-channel capabilities, while further optimizing our store footprint."

Mr. Kornberg continued, "Our financial position remains strong with more than $235 million in cash and no debt, and we generate solid cash flow. Since our Board authorized a $150 million share repurchase program in November, we have repurchased $25 million, or 3.2 million shares, underscoring our confidence in the business and commitment to driving shareholder value."

Share Repurchase Program:

On November 28, 2017, the Company's Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program that authorized the Company to repurchase up to $150 million of the Company’s outstanding common stock using available cash. Under this authorization, the Company repurchased 2.1 million common shares for $17 million during the fourth quarter of 2017. Subsequent to year-end, the Company has repurchased an additional 1.1 million shares for $8 million and currently has $125 million remaining under its authorization. The Company’s first quarter and full year 2018 guidance reflects share repurchases made to date, however does not contemplate any future share repurchases.

Tax Legislation:

"H.R.1", formerly known as the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act", was enacted into law on December 22, 2017. The new tax legislation will affect the Company by reducing its corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% and through a one-time re-measurement of the Company's deferred taxes using this new lower tax rate. During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company recognized a one-time gain related to the value of the Company's deferred taxes of $3.1 million. Excluding the impact of discrete items, the Company estimates that its operating tax rate will be reduced to approximately 28% due primarily to the new tax legislation.

Revenue Recognition Changes:

The Company adopted the new Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) revenue recognition standard effective in the first quarter of 2018. The new standard impacts the timing of e-commerce revenue recognition and the accounting treatment for the Company's loyalty and private label credit card programs, however it will not have a material impact on the Company's overall financial statements. The Company is utilizing the full retrospective method of adoption, and accordingly, has recast its income statements for 2017 and 2016. The Company has included the recast statements in the Form 8-K filed with the SEC as Exhibit 99.3 on March 14, 2018 and has also made them available on the Investor Relations section of its website. The Company's first quarter and full year 2018 guidance is based on the new standard.

2018 Guidance:

Supplemental Information - Consolidated Statements of Income
Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

The Company supplements the reporting of its financial information determined under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted earnings per share. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide additional useful information to assist stockholders in understanding its financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. Management believes adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted earnings per share are important indicators of the Company's business performance because they exclude items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, the Company's underlying operating results, and provide a better baseline for analyzing trends in the business. In addition, adjusted operating income is used as a performance measure in the Company's short-term cash incentive compensation program and adjusted diluted earnings per share is used as a performance measure in the Company's long-term executive compensation program for purposes of determining the number of equity awards that are ultimately earned. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These adjusted financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for reported operating income, reported net income and reported diluted earnings per share. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing the Company's operations that, when viewed with the GAAP results and the below reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of the Company's business. Management strongly encourages investors and stockholders to review the Company's financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.
