Comments

Brendan Hoffman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our first quarter financial results reflect meaningful progress on our strategic initiatives. Comparable store sales increased in spite of inclement weather. Enhancements to our eCommerce business again yielded double-digit sales growth while we saw increased penetration of proprietary credit card sales due to concentrated efforts to drive this business. Our gross margin rate benefited from a better balanced merchandise mix and a more effective markdown strategy.”

Net Sales

Comparable store sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 1.2% over the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Total sales increased 1.0% to $646.9 million, compared with $640.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

Other Income

Other income in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $15.0 million, compared with $13.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

Gross Margin

In the first quarter of fiscal 2013, gross margin increased $5.8 million to $225.3 million, compared with $219.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

The gross margin rate for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 increased to 34.8% of net sales from 34.3% of net sales in the prior year period. The increase in the gross margin rate in the current year period is largely attributable to a reduced net markdown percentage and an increase in the cumulative markup percentage.
