Hanesbrands’ 3Q Sales Drop 8%

(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). During the third quarter ended October 3rd, 2009, Hanesbrands Inc. cited net sales totaling at $1.06 billion, an 8 percent drop from sales during the third quarter ended September 28th, 2008. Innerwear sales decreased 10 percent due to weak results in intimate apparel and socks, and hosiery sales dropped 12 percent. Outerwear sales decreased 5 percent.

According to the company, these results were in line with its expectations. “Given that we are in the midst of a recession, we had very good profit growth in the quarter and solidified business momentum for 2010,” Richard A. Noll, chairman and chief executive officer of Hanebrands, said.

“We have built a platform for future growth through our continued brand investments and low-cost global supply chain. We are protecting margins, reducing debt and substantially ramping up our production capacity to support a strong 2010, in which we expect shelf-space and distribution gains to add approximately 5 percent to our sales.”

In other news, production began in early October at Hanesbrands’ new Nanjing, China fabric plant, which will supply the company’s southeast Asia sewing facilities. As a result of what the company called “the continuing long-term declining sheer hosiery consumption in the United States,” the company announced in late October that it expects to close a sheer hosiery manufacturing facility in Winston-Salem, NC, which employs 240 workers, during 2010.
