The Company now expects adjusted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 to be in a range of $0.83 - $0.88 on net sales of approximately $250 million. This compares to its previously issued guidance of adjusted earnings per share of $0.98 - $1.13 on net sales of $255 - $265 million and to the prior year's fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share of $0.65 on net sales of $236.2 million.
For fiscal year 2013, the Company now expects adjusted earnings per share to be in a range of $2.75 - $2.80 on net sales of approximately $917 million. This compares to its previously issued guidance of adjusted earnings per share of $2.90 - $3.05 on net sales of $922 - $932 million and to the prior year's adjusted earnings per share of $2.61 on net sales of $855.5 million.
On a GAAP basis, earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 are now expected to be in a range of $0.84 - $0.89 compared to its previously issued guidance of $1.01 - $1.16 and earnings per share of $0.32 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. On a GAAP basis, earnings per share for fiscal 2013 are now expected to be in a range of $2.68 - $2.73 compared to its previously issued guidance of $2.85 - $3.00 and earnings per share of $1.89 in fiscal 2012. For reference, tables reconciling GAAP to adjusted measures are included at the end of the release.
For fiscal 2014, the Company currently expects full year net sales to grow between 7% and 9%. The Company believes it will continue to see improved profitability and, on that rate of revenue growth, expects adjusted earnings per share to increase between 9% and 14%. The Company expects to provide a more detailed update on its fourth quarter earnings conference call.
Thomas C. Chubb III, Oxford's Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, "While we were able to generate strong top and bottom line year over year growth during the fourth quarter, results ultimately fell short of our expectations. That said, our lifestyle brands performed well during the quarter, with comparable store sales increases in the mid-single digits for Tommy Bahama and over 20% for Lilly Pulitzer.
These results reflect a very solid Holiday selling season, which was moderated by a difficult January. Tommy Bahama experienced a significant decrease in comparable store sales in the month of January driven by markedly lower traffic, which has continued into early February. Additionally, Ben Sherman's January results were weaker than expected."
Mr. Chubb concluded, "Although we are disappointed to end fiscal 2013 on this note, it was a year of good sales and earnings growth for Oxford. We look forward to continuing this growth during fiscal 2014. As we head into the spring season, which is traditionally our strongest season, we are very happy with the way our stores and the spring merchandise look and are optimistic that, with better weather, consumer traffic will improve."
