Jay Schottenstein, Interim CEO stated, “The Company’s results in 2013 were highly disappointing. While tough macro conditions have persisted in our retail sector, our merchandise and overall customer experience fell short of expectations.
 
We’re taking steps to bring greater focus and excitement to our product offering and better engage our core customers. Our brands remain incredibly strong and I’m confident in our ability to execute the strategic plan and resume long-term profitable growth.”
 
The following discussion is based on Non-GAAP results, which exclude the adjustments presented in the accompanying GAAP to Non-GAAP reconciliations.
 
Fourth Quarter 2013 Non-GAAP Results
Total net revenue for the 13 weeks decreased 7% to $1.04 billion from $1.12 billion for the 14 week period last year. Consolidated comparable sales for the 13 weeks decreased 7% over the same 13 week period last year. This follows a 4% comparable sales increase last year.
 
Gross profit decreased 28% to $332 million and decreased 930 basis points to 31.9% as a rate to revenue. The decrease was primarily the result of increased promotional activity and the deleverage of rent on negative comparable sales.
 
Selling, general and administrative expense of $216 million decreased 15% and leveraged 190 basis points to 20.7% as a rate to revenue. Lower incentive costs and a planned reduction in advertising drove the majority of the decline.
 
Operating income decreased 52% to $86 million. The operating margin decreased 770 basis points to 8.2%.
 
Adjusted EPS of $0.27 compares to $0.55 last year, a 51% decrease.
