"We are pleased with our financial performance for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012. Sales increased by 12.9%, led by growth in our Direct Marketing segment sales and comparable store sales and net income increased by 12.7%. Our net income margin in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 of 8.9% was consistent with the strong performance in the same period last year," stated R. Neal Black, President and CEO of JoS. A. Bank Clothiers, Inc.
"Keeping in mind that sales are just one component of net income and that sales for any one month are not necessarily indicative of sales for the entire quarter, we are nevertheless pleased to announce that the third quarter has started out positively. Both our comparable store sales and Direct Marketing sales are up in fiscal August compared to the same period last year," continued Mr. Black.
Based on the positive operating results of the new Full-line and Factory stores the Company has opened in the past several years and the Company's strong balance sheet, among other factors, the Company currently believes that the chain can be grown to approximately 800 total stores in the United States consisting of approximately 700 Full-line stores and approximately 100 Factory stores.
