Non-GAAP Second Quarter Results – Continuing Operations (Excluding 77kids)
The following discussion of second quarter results excludes Non-GAAP adjustments comprised of tax benefits and restructuring costs as presented in the accompanying GAAP to Non-GAAP reconciliation.
On May 18, 2012, the company announced plans to exit its children’s business, 77kids, which includes 22 stores and the online business. On August 3, 2012, the company completed a sale of 77kids, which included substantially all of the assets comprising the 77kids business, including store assets, the on-line business, inventory and a temporary license to use the 77kids name through January 15, 2013. Inventory for 77kids has been recorded as an asset held for sale on the company’s consolidated balance sheets.
The company expects to incur an after-tax loss of approximately $35 million, which includes $25 million of exit related charges and $10 million of operational costs during the exit period. The after tax loss for the second quarter was $24 million, or a $0.12 loss per diluted share, compared to an operating loss of $5 million, or a $0.03 loss per diluted share, last year. The remainder of the exit period costs are expected to be incurred in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.
