2019 Financial Guidance 

Delta Galil left unchanged its 2019 financial guidance, excluding one-time items. The Company’s financial guidance for 2019 includes the impact of IFRS 16 on accounting for leases. The current financial guidance does not include the impact from expected higher tariffs on imported products from China to the US and costs related to recall of damage goods shipped to a primarily customer, which are in total estimated at an amount of up to $4 million. Excluding the above and the impact from Bogart acquisition, the Company estimates that it will meet its sales target and the lower range of its profitability goals set in the guidance. The Company will update its guidance with respect to these factors in the 2019 third quarter. 

• Full-year 2019 sales are expected to range between $1,550 million-$1,590 million, representing an increase of 3%-6% from 2018 actual sales of $1,498 million. 

• Full-year 2019 EBIT is expected to range between $112 million-$117 million, representing an increase of 14%-19% from 2018 actual EBIT of $98 million. 

• Full-year 2019 EBITDA is expected to range between $189 million-$194 million, representing an increase of 45%-49% from 2018 actual EBITDA of $130 million. 

• Full-year 2019 net income is expected to range between $64 million-$67 million, representing an increase of 5%-12% from 2018 actual net income of $60 million. 

• Full-year 2019 diluted EPS is expected to range between $2.50-$2.65, representing an increase of 5%-12% from 2018 actual EPS of $2.37. 

IFRS 16 

Starting January 1, 2019, the Company adopted the new lease accounting standards set forth in IFRS 16. This requires that certain leases, which were accounted for as operating leases be treated as capital leases going forward. Certain leases will be reclassified as assets and liabilities on the balance sheet, which will yield increased depreciation and interest expense, offset by a reduction in rental expense.
