Sales jump 15% at apparel retailer Genesco in Q2 FY'12

Genesco Inc. reported earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter ended July 28, 2012, of $10.6 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the second quarter ended July 30, 2011. 

Fiscal 2013 second quarter results reflect pretax items of $3.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share after tax, primarily including compensation expenses related to deferred purchase price payments in connection with the acquisition of Schuh Group Limited in June 2011, decreased by tax rate adjustments, and asset impairment charges. 

As previously announced, because the obligation to pay the deferred purchase price for Schuh is contingent upon the continued employment of the payees, U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles require that it be treated as compensation expense. Last year, second quarter results included $8.1 million pretax, or $0.21 per diluted share after tax, of acquisition-related expenses including deferred purchase price, decreased by a tax rate adjustment, and asset impairment charges.

Adjusted for the items described above in both periods, earnings from continuing operations were $12.1 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the second quarter of Fiscal 2013, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $5.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the second quarter of Fiscal 2012. 

For consistency with Fiscal 2013's previously announced earnings expectations and with previously reported adjusted results for the prior year period, the Company believes that the disclosure of the results from continuing operations adjusted for these items will be useful to investors.

Additionally, the Company believes that the presentation of earnings from continuing operations before the compensation expense associated with the Schuh deferred purchase price will enable investors to understand the effect attributable to incorporating a continuing employment condition into the obligation to pay deferred purchase price. 

Net sales for the second quarter of Fiscal 2013 increased 15% to $543.5 million from $470.6 million in the second quarter of Fiscal 2012, reflecting the addition of sales from Schuh Group and a comparable store sales increase of 4%. 

The Lids Sports Group's comparable store sales increased by 2%, the Journeys Group increased by 6%, and Johnston & Murphy Retail increased by 2%.  The Schuh Group's comparable store sales increased by 9% in the month of July, the first month it was eligible for inclusion in the Company's comparable store numbers.

Robert J. Dennis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Genesco, said, "We are pleased with the strength of our second quarter performance. We generated significant operating expense leverage on solid sales growth to deliver earnings that were ahead of expectations. With August comparable sales up 9%, the third quarter is off to an encouraging start. We believe our merchandise assortment is well positioned for the remainder of back-to-school and the upcoming holiday season."
