American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. reported adjusted earnings of $0.19 per diluted share for the third quarter ended November 2, 2013, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $0.41 per diluted share for the third quarter ended October 27, 2012.

"GAAP earnings of $0.13 per diluted share include non-cash charges of ($0.06) per diluted share associated with the company’s previously disclosed plans to close its Warrendale, PA distribution center upon the opening of its new facility in Hazleton, PA.

Robert Hanson, CEO stated, “Our financial performance is clearly unsatisfactory and not consistent with our objectives. As we continue to navigate through an intensely promotional North American retail landscape, we are making improvements in merchandising and marketing, while aggressively pursuing efficiency gains, expense reductions and ensuring disciplined inventory management.

"We are continuing to invest in important areas of growth including omni-channel, global expansion and factory stores -- all high-return segments, which diversify our business and will be key drivers of our future growth and success.”

Third Quarter 2013 Non-GAAP Results

The following discussion is based on Non-GAAP results, as presented in the accompanying GAAP to Non-GAAP reconciliation.

- Total net revenue of $857 million decreased 6% compared to $910 million last year. On comparable weeks, total revenue would have decreased in the low single-digits.

-Consolidated comparable sales, including AEO Direct, decreased 5%, compared to a 10% increase last year. Third quarter 2013 comparable sales are compared to the 13 weeks ended November 3, 2012.

- Gross profit decreased 21% to $299 million and 670 basis points to 34.9% of revenue, primarily as the result of higher promotional activity and the deleverage of rent on negative comparable sales.

- Selling, general and administrative expense of $206 million decreased 6% from last year and leveraged 10 basis points to 24.0% as a rate to revenue. Lower incentive compensation and travel costs contributed to the improvement.

- Operating income decreased 52% to $61 million, resulting in a rate of 7.1% compared to 14.1% last year.

-  Adjusted EPS of $0.19 compared to EPS from continuing operations of $0.41 last year, a 54% decline.

Inventory

Total merchandise inventory at the end of the third quarter increased to $519 million compared to $481 million last year. At cost per foot, inventory increased 6% against an 11% decline last year, which reflects the impact of timing shifts of merchandise receipts due to the 53rd week last year. On comparable weeks, inventory at cost per foot would have increased in the low single-digits.
