HanesBrands makes the Fortune 500 list for 2014

The company sells T-shirts, bras, panties, shapewear, men’s underwear, children’s underwear, socks, hosiery, and activewear produced in the company’s low-cost global supply chain. HanesBrands, a leading marketer of everyday basic innerwear and activewear apparel, has made the Fortune 500 list of America’s largest companies for the first time. The company, one of just five apparel companies on the Fortune 500, ranks No. 17 in the list for total shareholder return in 2014.

Hanes also ranks No. 490 on the list of largest American public companies by revenue published in the Fortune magazine this month. Hanes made the list after posting record sales of US 5.32 billion in 2014, up by 15% compared to the company’s previous record for sales in 2013.

“We’re proud of our continuing growth success that has allowed us to make the Fortune 500 in the same year that we joined the S&P 500,” said Richard A. Noll, Hanes Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The recognitions reflect the success of our Innovate-to-Elevate, global supply chain and acquisition strategies and the smart use of free cash flow to create value.”

Achievements

In March, S&P Dow Jones Indices added Hanes to the S&P 500 stock market index designed to reflect the US economy through leading large-cap companies in leading industries.

 By several measures, Hanes ranks higher than its revenue ranking compared with Fortune 500 companies in 2014. Highlights include:

  • For 2014, Hanes’ 61% total return to shareholders ranked No. 17
  • For the past five years, Hanes’ 36.5% rate of annual total return to shareholders ranked No. 20
  • Hanes ranked No. 341 for profit
  • Hanes ranked No. 211 for profit as a percentage of sales
  • Hanes profit growth of 22.4% exceeded the Fortune 500 median of 9.9%
  • Hanes sales growth of 15.1% exceeded the Fortune 500 median of 4.3%
