06/02/16 07:49 AMBarington Capital Group Sends Letter to the Chairman of the Board of Chico's FAS, Inc. - Dear Mr. Walker: Barington Capital Group, L.P. ("Barington") represents a group of shareholders of Chico's FAS, Inc. ("Chico's" or the "Company"). As frequent investors in retail and apparel companies, we have been following the Company for many years. We currently beneficially own over 1.5% of its outstanding common stock and intend to continue to purchase shares at current market prices. We invested in Chico's because we believe its common stock is significantly undervalued, particularly given the Company's long list of positive attributes. These include a sizable market share in an attractive, underserved market, a loyal customer base, high gross margins, strong cash flow, a healthy balance sheet, and industry-leading store productivity. The Chico's and White House Black Market brands lead the underserved apparel market that caters to women ages 35 and older, and the Soma brand has established itself as a clear alternative to Victoria's Secret and department store brands for women in this age category. Most of the Company's stores are in more upscale locations, with 65% of its stores located in premium, off-mall properties. Its stores are among the most productive of its specialty retailer peers, with sales of approximately $700 per square foot, 80% higher than the median of its peers of approximately $390 per square foot.1 Furthermore, the Company's gross margins are among the highest of its peers. Unfortunately, despite these positive characteristics, the Company has failed to create meaningful long-term value for its shareholders. As of the close of business on Tuesday, May 31, 2016, Chico's common stock is down approximately 33% over the past twelve months and down approximately 78% from its all-time high of $48.90 on February 21, 2006. As shown in the table below, the Company's common stock has also significantly underperformed its own self-selected peers, as well as the indices that Chico's uses for comparative purposes in its public filings, over the past one, three, five and ten-year periods:2 1 Year (6/1/15-5/31/16) 3 Years (6/3/13-5/31/16) 5 Years (6/1/11-5/31/16) 10 Years (6/1/06-5/31/16) Chico's (33.3%) (35.7%) (19.4%) (60.9%) Peers (22.2%) (21.7%) (2.0%) 33.2% S&P 500 Apparel Retail Index (0.2%) 29.6% 114.2% 221.9% S&P 500 Index 1.5% 36.2% 77.7% 101.9% Notwithstanding the Company's disappointing share price performance, we are convinced that Chico's has a vast value potential that is not being realized. Therefore, as is our frequent practice, we established a private dialogue with members of the Company's senior management team, as well as with you and other members of the Board of Directors, beginning in March 2016. Since then, during conference calls and in a letter to you dated May 3, 2016, we have shared some of our recommendations with respect to the Company as well as our belief that the Company's high SG&A expenses are masking its true earnings power. We are pleased that since we began this dialogue the Company has begun to implement a number of the measures that we have recommended. While we commend the Company for taking these steps, we question whether they would have been taken with the same speed, or at all, without our involvement. Regardless, as the Company's earnings release for the first quarter of 2016 indicates, there is still much more work that needs to be done. The Company's sales for the quarter were down -7.9% from the comparable quarter last year, or -4.4% excluding the impact of Boston Proper, which was sold for a significant loss in 2015 after Chico's recorded over $215 million in goodwill and trade name impairment charges. The Company's comparable store sales for the quarter were down 4.2% from the prior year period and the Company's adjusted earnings of $0.25 per diluted share for the quarter were down approximately 17% from the comparable period last year and down approximately 22% from the comparable period three years earlier. In order to improve the Company's performance and unlock its value potential, we believe that Chico's needs to implement a wide variety of measures. These include (a) initiatives to enhance revenue by improving execution, merchandising and store productivity at each of its three brands, (b) growing the Soma brand, (c) measures to decrease the Company's high selling, general and administrative (SG&A) costs by at least $100 million through, among other things, decentralizing the management of its brands and eliminating unnecessary or inefficient marketing expenses, (d) repurchasing stock at current levels, (e) improving the Company's executive compensation practices to better align management and shareholder interests and (f) adding to the Chico's Board experienced directors who can help oversee the implementation of the foregoing measures while ensuring that shareholder interests remain paramount. While we will provide you and our fellow shareholders with a more detailed presentation of our recommendations in the weeks to come, we have summarized for you below some of the key steps that we believe the Company must take in order to realize its long-term value potential. We are convinced that if the Company implements these measures, Chico's could more than double its earnings per share in three years, which we estimate could translate to a stock price of approximately $25 to $27 per share.3 A. Enhance Revenue We believe that the core focus of the Company needs to be on improving revenue at its three brands: Chico's, White House Black Market and Soma. We believe that this can be done through a combination of efforts to improve execution, merchandising and store productivity at the Company. Decentralize Corporate Functions and Improve Execution It is our belief that Chico's has a number of centralized functions that are performed by its corporate headquarters staff that should be exclusively performed at each of the Company's three brands. While the intention of centralizing these functions may have been to attempt to create synergies or cost savings, in practice we believe that the current structure has resulted in excessive corporate overhead as well as unnecessary ...Full story available on Benzinga.com
