L Brands, Inc. reported net sales of $2.098 billion for the five weeks ended Jan. 4, 2014, compared to net sales of $1.947 billion for the five weeks ended Dec. 29, 2012.  The company reported a comparable store sales increase of 2 percent for the five weeks ended Jan. 4, 2014, compared to the five weeks ended Jan. 5, 2013.

The company reported net sales of $10.042 billion for the 48 weeks ended Jan. 4, 2014, an increase of 6 percent compared to net sales of $9.472 billion for the 48 weeks ended Dec. 29, 2012.  The company reported a comparable store sales increase of 2 percent for the 48 weeks ended Jan. 4, 2014, compared to the 48 weeks ended Jan. 5, 2013.

The company now expects fourth quarter earnings per share of approximately $1.60, compared to its previous forecast of $1.67 to $1.82.  The decrease versus its previous forecast is primarily the result of lower than forecasted merchandise margins due to incremental promotional activity.
