Nov '11
Aeropostale Inc, a mall-based specialty retailer of casual apparel for young women and men, announced revised guidance for the third quarter.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2011 net sales decreased 1% to $596.5 million, from $602.8 million in the year ago period. Same store sales for the third quarter decreased 9%, compared to essentially flat same store sales last year.

Based on better than expected gross margins for the quarter, the Company now expects third quarter earnings in the range of $0.27 - $0.28 per diluted share, versus its previously issued guidance in the range of $0.09 - $0.15 per share.

Thomas P. Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "During the quarter we continued to make progress with our strategic initiatives, and managed our inventories carefully. While we delivered third quarter earnings that exceeded our previously issued guidance we remain cautious given industry-wide costing pressures and the current retail environment.

"Our entire organization is focused on carrying out our key initiatives for the remainder of the year and into next year. We continue to remain very confident in our business model and the strength and positioning of the Aeropostale brand."

The Company expects to announce third quarter earnings on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at 4:15 PM (EST).

Aeropostale Inc. is a mall-based, specialty retailer of casual apparel and accessories, principally targeting 14 to 17 year-old young women and men through its Aeropostale stores and 4 to 12 year-old kids through its P.S. from Aeropostale stores.
