Francesca's Holdings Corporation announced that the Company has updated its guidance for the fourth quarter ending February 1, 2014 based on its holiday period sales performance.

The Company now expects sales for the fourth quarter ending February 1, 2014 to be between $93.0 million and $95.0 million, including a mid to low single digit decrease in comparable sales.

This compares to previous guidance provided on December 5, 2013 of sales between $90.0 million and $95.0 million, including a decrease of 8% to 3% in comparable sales. Earnings per diluted share for the quarter are expected to be in the range of $0.27 to $0.29 for the fourth quarter ending February 1, 2014, at the high end of the Company's previous guidance of $0.25 to $0.29.

Neill P. Davis, francesca's Chief Executive Officer stated, "After a lackluster start to the holiday selling season beginning the week of Thanksgiving, we ended the season stronger. Our customers responded well to our offerings, particularly apparel, accessories, and gifts.

"In addition, we remained diligent during the quarter aligning our inventory levels to our year-end objectives. As a result, we expect inventory, on an average boutique basis, to be flat to the comparable prior year period. Overall, we believe that our differentiated business model, combined with our retail growth strategy and execution of our operational initiatives, will continue to drive improvements in long term shareholder value."
