Delta Apparel, Inc. and Subsidiaries

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

Note A— Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

 

Delta Apparel, Inc. (collectively with DTG2Go, LLC, Salt Life, LLC, M.J. Soffe, LLC, and other subsidiaries, "Delta Apparel," "we," "us," "our," or the "Company") is a vertically-integrated, international apparel company. With approximately 8,900 employees worldwide, we design, manufacture, source, and market a diverse portfolio of core activewear and lifestyle apparel products under our primary brands of Salt Life®, Soffe®, and Delta. We are a market leader in the on-demand, digital print and fulfillment industry, bringing DTG2Go's proprietary technology and innovation to the supply chain of our customers. We specialize in selling casual and athletic products through a variety of distribution channels and tiers, including outdoor and sporting goods retailers, independent and specialty stores, better department stores and mid-tier retailers, mass merchants and e-retailers, the U.S. military, and through our business-to-business digital platform. Our products are also made available direct-to-consumer on our ecommerce sites and in our branded retail stores. Our diversified distribution model allows us to capitalize on our strengths to provide our activewear and lifestyle apparel products to a broad and evolving customer base whose shopping preferences may span multiple retail channels. 

 

We design and internally manufacture the majority of our products. More than 90% of the apparel units that we sell are sewn in our owned or leased facilities. This allows us to offer a high degree of consistency and quality, leverage scale efficiencies, and react quickly to changes in trends within the marketplace. We have manufacturing operations located in the United States, El Salvador, Honduras, and Mexico, and we use domestic and foreign contractors as additional sources of production. Our distribution facilities are strategically located throughout the United States to better serve our customers with same-day shipping on our catalog products and weekly replenishments to retailers.  We were incorporated in Georgia in 1999, and our headquarters is located in Duluth, Georgia. Our common stock trades on the NYSE American under the symbol “DLA."

 

We operate on a 52-53 week fiscal year ending on the Saturday closest to September 30.  Our 2022 fiscal year is a 52-week year and will end on October 1, 2022 ("fiscal 2022"). Accordingly, this Form 10-Q presents our second quarter of fiscal 2022. Our 2021 fiscal year was a 52-week year and ended on October 2, 2021 ("fiscal 2021").

 

For presentation purposes herein, all references to period ended relate to the following fiscal years and dates:

We prepared the accompanying interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") for complete financial statements. We believe these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation. Operating results for the three-month and six-month periods ended March 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for our fiscal 2022. Although our various product lines are sold on a year-round basis, the demand for specific products or styles reflects some seasonality, with sales in our June quarter generally being the highest and sales in our December quarter generally being the lowest. These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal 2021, filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of Delta Apparel and its wholly-owned and majority-owned domestic and foreign subsidiaries. We apply the equity method of accounting for our investment in 31% of the outstanding capital stock of a Honduran company. During the six-months ended March 2022 and March 2021, we received dividends from the investment of $1.1 million and $0.3 million, respectively. Our Ceiba Textiles manufacturing facility is leased under an operating lease arrangement, with this Honduran company. During the six-months ended March 2022, we paid approximately $0.9 million under this arrangement. Payments of approximately $1.3 million were made during the six-months ended March 2021, which included payment of rent deferrals related to the June 2020 quarter as a result of the COVID pandemic.

 

We make available copies of materials we file with, or furnish to, the SEC free of charge at https://ir.deltaapparelinc.com. The information found on our website is not part of this, or any other, report that we file with, or furnish to, the SEC. In addition, we will provide upon request, at no cost, paper or electronic copies of our reports and other filings made with the SEC. Requests should be directed to: Investor Relations Department, Delta Apparel, Inc., 2750 Premiere Parkway, Suite 100, Duluth, Georgia 30097. Requests can also be made by telephone to 864-232-5200, or via email at investor.relations@deltaapparel.com.

Note B—Accounting Policies

 

Our accounting policies are consistent with those described in our Significant Accounting Policies in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal 2021, filed with the SEC. See Note C for consideration of recently issued accounting standards.

 

Note C—New Accounting Standards

 

Recently Adopted Standards

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASU 2019-12”), which simplifies the accounting for income taxes, eliminates certain exceptions within Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 740, Income Taxes, and clarifies certain aspects of the current guidance to promote consistency among reporting entities. ASU 2019-12 is effective as of the beginning of our fiscal year 2022. Most amendments within the standard are required to be applied on a prospective basis, while certain amendments must be applied on a retrospective or modified retrospective basis. The impact of the adoption of provision of ASU 2019-12 did not have a material impact to our financial condition, results of operations, cash flows, and disclosures.

 

Standards Not Yet Adopted

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”), which requires an entity to assess impairment of its financial instruments based on the entity's estimate of expected credit losses. Since the issuance of ASU 2016-13, the FASB released several amendments to improve and clarify the implementation guidance. These standards have been collectively codified within ASC Topic 326, Credit Losses (“ASC 326”). As a smaller reporting company as defined by the SEC, the provisions of ASC 326 are effective as of the beginning of our fiscal year 2024. We are currently evaluating the impacts of the provisions of ASC 326 on our financial condition, results of operations, cash flows, and disclosures.

 

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848) Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting. ASU 2020-04 provides optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease potential accounting and financial reporting impacts of reference rate reform, including the expected transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates. This new guidance includes temporary optional practical expedients and exceptions for applying U.S. GAAP to transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met.  These transactions include contract modifications, hedging relationships and the sale or transfer of debt securities classified as held-to-maturity.  Entities may apply the provisions of the new standard at the beginning of the reporting period when the election is made. This guidance may be applied through December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures and has yet to elect an adoption date.

Note F—Debt

 

Credit Facility

 

On May 10, 2016, we entered into a Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as further amended, the “Amended Credit Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Wells Fargo”), as Administrative Agent, the Sole Lead Arranger and the Sole Book Runner, and the financial institutions named therein as Lenders, which are Wells Fargo, PNC Bank, and Regions Bank. Our subsidiaries M.J. Soffe, LLC, Culver City Clothing Company, Salt Life, LLC, and DTG2Go, LLC (collectively, the "Borrowers"), are co-borrowers under the Amended Credit Agreement. The Borrowers entered into amendments to the Amended Credit Agreement with Wells Fargo and the other lenders on November 27, 2017, March 9, 2018, October 8, 2018, November 19, 2019, April 27, 2020, and August 28, 2020.

 

The Amended Credit Agreement allows us to borrow up to $170 million (subject to borrowing base limitations), including a maximum of $25 million in letters of credit. Provided that no event of default exists, we have the option to increase the maximum credit to $200 million (subject to borrowing base limitations), conditioned upon the Administrative Agent's ability to secure additional commitments and customary closing conditions. The Amended Credit Agreement contains a subjective acceleration clause and a “springing” lockbox arrangement (as defined in ASC 470, Debt ("ASC 470")) whereby remittances from customers will be forwarded to our general bank account and will not reduce the outstanding debt until and unless a specified event or an event of default occurs. We classify borrowings under the Amended Credit Agreement as long-term debt with consideration of current maturities.

 

As of March 2022, we had $120.8 million outstanding under our U.S. revolving credit facility at an average interest rate of 3.2%. Our cash on hand combined with the availability under the U.S. credit facility totaled $35.1 million. At  March 2022 and September 2021 there was $22.9 million and $19.0 million, respectively, of retained earnings free of restrictions to make cash dividends or stock repurchases.

 

Promissory Note

 

On October 8, 2018, we acquired substantially all of the assets of Silk Screen Ink, Ltd. d/b/a SSI Digital Print Services. In conjunction with the acquisition, we issued a promissory note in the principal amount of $7.0 million. The promissory note beared interest at 6% with quarterly installments, which began January 2, 2019, with the final installment due October 1, 2021. The final payment, in accordance with the promissory note agreement, was made during the three-months ended December 2021. 

 

Honduran Debt

 

Since March 2011, we have entered into term loans and a revolving credit facility with Banco Ficohsa, a Honduran bank, to finance both the operations and capital expansion of our Honduran facilities. In December 2020, we entered into a new term loan and revolving credit facility with Banco Ficohsa, both with five-year terms, and simultaneously settled the prior term loans and revolving credit facility with outstanding balances at the time of settlement of $1.1 million and $9.5 million, respectively. Each of these new loans is secured by a first-priority lien on the assets of our Honduran operations and is not guaranteed by our U.S. entities. These loans are denominated in U.S. dollars, and the carrying value of the debt approximates its fair value. As the revolving credit facility permits us to re-borrow funds up to the amount repaid, subject to certain objective covenants, and we intend to re-borrow funds, subject to those covenants, the amounts have been classified as long-term debt. Additional information about these loans and the outstanding balances as of  March 2022 is as follows (in thousands):

 

  

March 2022

 

Revolving credit facility established December 2020, interest at 7.25%, due August 2025

Term loan established December 2020, interest at 7.5%, quarterly installments beginning September 2021 through December 2025

  7,607 
 

 Note G—Selling, General and Administrative Expense

 

We include in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses the costs incurred subsequent to the receipt of finished goods at our distribution facilities, such as the cost of stocking, warehousing, picking, packing, and shipping goods for delivery to our customers. Distribution costs included in SG&A expenses totaled $5.6 million and $5.2 million for the March 2022 and 2021 quarters, respectively. Distribution costs included in SG&A expenses totaled $11.2 million and $10.4 million for the six-months ended March 2022 and 2021, respectively. In addition, SG&A expenses include costs related to sales associates, administrative personnel, advertising and marketing expenses and other general and administrative expenses.

Note H—Stock-Based Compensation

 

On February 6, 2020, our shareholders approved the Delta Apparel, Inc. 2020 Stock Plan ("2020 Stock Plan") to replace the 2010 Stock Plan, which was previously re-approved by our shareholders on February 4, 2015 and was scheduled to expire by its terms on September 14, 2020. The 2020 Stock Plan is substantially similar in both form and substance to the 2010 Stock Plan. The purpose of the 2020 Stock Plan is to continue to give our Board of Directors and its Compensation Committee the ability to offer a variety of compensatory awards designed to enhance the Company’s long-term success by encouraging stock ownership among its executives, key employees and directors. Under the 2020 Stock Plan, the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors has the authority to determine the employees and directors to whom awards may be granted, and the size and type of each award and manner in which such awards will vest. The awards available under the plan consist of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance stock, stock performance units, and other stock and cash awards. Unvested awards, while employed by the Company or servings as a director, become fully vested under certain circumstances as defined in the 2020 Stock Plan. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, the participant’s death or becoming disabled. The Compensation Committee is authorized to establish the terms and conditions of awards granted under the 2020 Stock Plan, to establish, amend and rescind any rules and regulations relating to the 2020 Stock Plan, and to make any other determinations that it deems necessary. Similar to the 2010 Stock Plan, the 2020 Stock Plan limits the number of shares that may be covered by awards to any participant in a given calendar year and also limits the aggregate awards of restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance stock granted in a given calendar year. Shares are generally issued from treasury stock upon the vesting of the restricted stock units, performance units or other awards under the 2020 Stock Plan.

 

Compensation expense is recorded within SG&A in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations over the vesting periods. During the March 2022 and 2021 quarters, we recognized $0.9 million and $0.6 million in stock-based compensation expense, respectively. Associated with the compensation cost are income tax benefits recognized of $0.2 million and $0.1 million, respectively, for each of the three-month periods ended March 2022 and March 2021, respectively. During the six-months ended March 2022 and March 2021, we recognized $1.3 million and $1.5 million, respectively, in stock-based compensation expense. Associated with the compensation cost are income tax benefits recognized of $0.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively, for each of the six-months periods ended March 2022 and March 2021. 

 

During the December 2021 quarter, performance stock units and restricted stock units representing 47,700 and 95,000 shares of our common stock, respectively, vested with the filing of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2021, and were issued in accordance with their respective agreements. Of these vested awards, 96,350 were payable in common stock and 46,350 were payable in cash.

 

During the December 2021 quarter, restrictive stock units representing 5,000 shares of our common stock were granted and are eligible to vest upon the filing of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2022 and are payable in common stock. During the December 2021 quarter, performance stock units and restrictive stock units representing 59,625 and 59,625 shares of our common stock, respectively, were granted and are eligible to vest upon the filing of our Annual Report for fiscal 2023. Of these shares, 64,625 are payable in common stock and 54,625 are payable in cash.

 

During the December 2021 quarter, restrictive stock units representing 13,000 shares of our common stock were granted and are eligible to vest upon the filing of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2024 and are payable in common stock.

 

During the March 2022 quarter, restrictive stock units representing 42,000 shares of our common stock were granted and are eligible to vest upon the filing of our Annual Report for fiscal 2023. Of these shares, 21,000 are payable in common stock and 21,000 are payable in cash.

 

During the March 2022 quarter, restrictive stock units representing 42,000 shares of our common stock were granted and are eligible to vest upon the filing of our Annual Report for fiscal 2024. Of these shares, 21,000 are payable in common stock and 21,000 are payable in cash.

 

As of March 2022, there was $5.9 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested awards granted under the 2020 Stock Plan. This cost is expected to be recognized over a period of 2.7 years.

Note J—Business Segments

 

Our operations are managed and reported in two segments, Delta Group and Salt Life Group, which reflect the manner in which the business is managed and results are reviewed by the Chief Executive Officer, who is our chief operating decision maker. 

 

The Delta Group is comprised of our business units primarily focused on core activewear styles, and includes our DTG2Go and Delta Activewear business units. We are a market leader in the on-demand, direct-to-garment digital print and fulfillment industry, bringing technology and innovation to the supply chain of our many customers.  We use highly-automated factory processes and our proprietary software to deliver on-demand, digitally printed apparel direct to consumers on behalf of our customers. Our Activewear business is organized around key customer channels and how they source their various apparel needs. Delta Activewear is a preferred supplier of activewear apparel to regional and global brands, direct to retail and through wholesale markets. We offer a broad portfolio of apparel and accessories under the Delta, Delta Platinum, Soffe, and sourced-branded products that we distribute utilizing our network of fulfillment centers. Delta Direct services key channels, such as the screen print, promotional, and eRetailer channels as well as the retail licensing channel, whose customers sell through to many mid-tier and mass market retailers.  In our Global Brands & Retail Direct business we serve our customers as their supply chain partner, from product development to shipment of their branded products, with the majority of products being sold with value-added services including embellishment, hangtags, and ticketing. We also serve retailers by providing our portfolio of products directly to their retail stores and through their ecommerce channels.  We sell our products to a diversified audience, including sporting goods and outdoor retailers, specialty and resort shops, farm and fleet stores, department stores, and mid-tier retailers.

Products in this segment are marketed under our lifestyle brands of Salt Life® as well as other labels.

 

Our Chief Operating Decision Maker and management evaluate performance and allocate resources based on profit or loss from operations before interest, income taxes and special charges ("segment operating earnings"). Our segment operating earnings  may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The accounting policies of our reportable segments are the same as those described in Note 2 in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2021, filed with the SEC. Intercompany transfers between operating segments are transacted at cost and have been eliminated within the segment amounts shown in the following table (in thousands).

Note K—Income Taxes

 

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the “New Tax Legislation”) was enacted on December 22, 2017, which significantly revised the U.S. corporate income tax code by, among other things, lowering federal corporate income tax rates, implementing a modified territorial tax system and imposing a repatriation tax ("transition tax") on deemed repatriated cumulative earnings of foreign subsidiaries which will be paid over eight years. In addition, new taxes were imposed related to foreign income, including a tax on global intangible low-taxed income (“GILTI”) as well as a limitation on the deduction for business interest expense (“Section 163(j)"). GILTI is the excess of the shareholder’s net controlled foreign corporations ("CFC") net tested income over the net deemed tangible income.  GILTI income is eligible for a deduction of up to 50% of the income inclusion, but the deduction is limited to the amount of U.S. adjusted taxable income.  The Section 163(j) limitation does not allow the amount of deductible interest to exceed the sum of the taxpayer's business interest income and 30% of the taxpayer’s adjusted taxable income. We have included in our calculation of our effective tax rate the estimated impact of GILTI and Section 163(j). We have elected to account for the tax on GILTI as a period cost and, therefore, do not record deferred taxes related to GILTI on our foreign subsidiaries.

 

Our effective income tax rate on operations for the six-months ended March 2022 was 18.2% compared to a rate of 27.6% in the same period of the prior year, and an effective rate of 21.9% for fiscal 2021. We generally benefit from having income in foreign jurisdictions that are either exempt from income taxes or have tax rates that are lower than those in the United States. As such, changes in the mix of U.S. taxable income compared to profits in tax-free or lower-tax jurisdictions can have a significant impact on our overall effective tax rate.

 

Note L—Derivatives and Fair Value Measurements

 

From time to time, we may use interest rate swaps or other instruments to manage our interest rate exposure and reduce the impact of future interest rate changes. These financial instruments are not used for trading or speculative purposes. We have designated our interest rate swap contracts as cash flow hedges of our future interest payments. As a result, the gains and losses on the swap contracts are reported as a component of other comprehensive income and are reclassified into interest expense as the related interest payments are made. As of  March 2022, all of our other comprehensive income was attributable to shareholders; none related to the non-controlling interest.  Outstanding instruments as of  March 2022 are as follows:

From time to time, we may purchase cotton option contracts to economically hedge the risk related to market fluctuations in the cost of cotton used in our operations. We do not receive hedge accounting treatment for these derivatives. As such, the realized and unrealized gains and losses associated with them are recorded within cost of goods sold on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. No such cotton contracts were outstanding at  March 2022 and September 2021.

 

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”), defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. Assets and liabilities measured at fair value are grouped in three levels. The levels prioritize the inputs used to measure the fair value of the assets or liabilities. These levels are:

 

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

   
 

Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for assets and liabilities, either directly or indirectly. These inputs include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are less active.

   
 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity for assets or liabilities and includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques.

The fair value of the interest rate swap agreements was derived from a discounted cash flow analysis based on the terms of the contract and the forward interest rate curves adjusted for our credit risk, which fall in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. At March 2022 and September 2021, book value for fixed rate debt approximates fair value based on quoted market prices for the same or similar issues or on the current rates offered to us for debt of the same remaining maturities (a Level 2 fair value measurement).

 

The DTG2Go acquisition purchase price consisted of additional payments contingent on the combined business’s achievement of certain performance targets related to sales and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") for the period from April 1, 2018, through September 29, 2018, as well as for our fiscal years 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. The valuation of the fair value of the contingent consideration is based upon projected results, which then are discounted to present value to derive the fair value. The fair value of the contingent consideration is sensitive to changes in our projected results and discount rates.  As of March 2022, we estimate the fair value of contingent consideration to be $1.4 million, a $0.5 million decrease from September 2021 due to a change in projected results resulting in decreased estimated future earnout payments.

 

Note M—Legal Proceedings

 

At times, we are party to various legal claims, actions and complaints. We believe that, as a result of legal defenses, insurance arrangements, and indemnification provisions with parties believed to be financially capable, such actions should not have a material adverse effect on our operations, financial condition, or liquidity. 

 

Note N—Repurchase of Common Stock

 

As of September 28, 2019, our Board of Directors authorized management to use up to $60.0 million to repurchase stock in open market transactions under our Stock Repurchase Program.  During the March 2022 quarter, we purchased 28,015 shares of our common stock for an aggregate of $0.8 million. Through March 2022, we have purchased 3,701,180 shares of our common stock for an aggregate of $55.5 million under our Stock Repurchase Program since its inception. All purchases were made at the discretion of management and pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of SEC Rule 10b-18. As of March 2022, $4.5 million remained available for future purchases under our Stock Repurchase Program, which does not have an expiration date.

Goodwill represents the acquired goodwill net of the $0.6 million impairment losses recorded in fiscal year 2011. As of March 2022, the Delta Group segment assets include $18.0 million of goodwill, and the Salt Life segment assets include $19.9 million.

 

Depending on the type of intangible asset, amortization is recorded under cost of goods sold or selling, general and administrative expenses. Amortization expense for intangible assets for the March 2022 and March 2021 quarters was $0.6 million and $0.4 million, respectively. Amortization for the six-months ended March 2022 and March 2021 was $1.2 million and $0.8 million, respectively. Amortization expense is estimated to be approximately $2.3 million for the year ended September 2022, approximately $2.2 million for the year ended September 2023, and approximately $2.2 million for the years ended September 2024, 2025 and 2026.

 

On June 1, 2021, DTG2Go, LLC acquired specified net assets of Fan Print Inc., which primarily included its Autoscale.ai technology as well as immaterial net working capital. The costs to acquire the net assets were $8.0 million, of which $6.6 million was paid at closing through our existing U.S. credit facility and $1.4 million will be paid in three installments, two installments in our third quarter of fiscal 2022 and one installment in our fourth quarter of fiscal 2022. The acquisition qualified as an asset acquisition in accordance with ASU 2017-01, Clarifying the Definition of a Business, as substantially all of the fair value of the net assets acquired or $8.1 million were assigned to the technology intangible asset with an estimated economic life of 10 years. The acquisition cost also consists of additional payments contingent on the adjusted operating profits resulting from the Autoscale.ai technology for the period from June 1, 2021 through October 2, 2021, as well as for our fiscal years 2022 through 2026. These contingent earnout liabilities are recognized when the contingency is probable and reasonably estimable, which generally results in recognition, if earned, during the fourth quarter of each fiscal year and which would increase the value of the technology intangible asset.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of the Company. We may from time to time make written or oral statements that are “forward-looking,” including statements contained in this report and other filings with the SEC, in our press releases, and in other reports to our shareholders. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, which address activities, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The words “plan”, “estimate”, “project”, “forecast”, “outlook”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend”, “remain”, “seek", “believe”, “may”, “should” and similar expressions, and discussions of strategy or intentions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

 

Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based on our current expectations and are necessarily dependent upon assumptions, estimates and data that we believe are reasonable and accurate but may be incorrect, incomplete or imprecise. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of business risks and inherent uncertainties, any of which could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in or implied by the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in forward-looking statements include, among others, the following:

 

  the general U.S. and international economic conditions;
 

the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and government/social actions taken to contain its spread on our operations, financial condition, liquidity, and capital investments, including recent labor shortages, inventory constraints, and supply chain disruptions;

 

significant interruptions or disruptions within our manufacturing, distribution or other operations;

 

deterioration in the financial condition of our customers and suppliers and changes in the operations and strategies of our customers and suppliers;

 

the volatility and uncertainty of cotton and other raw material prices and availability;

 

the competitive conditions in the apparel industry;

 

our ability to predict or react to changing consumer preferences or trends;

 

our ability to successfully open and operate new retail stores in a timely and cost-effective manner;

 

the ability to grow, achieve synergies and realize the expected profitability of acquisitions;

 

changes in economic, political or social stability at our offshore locations in areas in which we, or our suppliers or vendors, operate;
