Tilly’s, Inc. announced financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 ended February 1, 2014.
 
For the fourth quarter ended February 1, 2014 (2012 reflects a 14-week period):
Total net sales were $139.9 million, a decrease of 0.6% compared to $140.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
 
Comparable store sales, which include e-commerce sales, decreased 4.9% compared to the same 13-week period in 2012. E-commerce sales were $19.1 million, an increase of approximately 2% compared to the same thirteen-week period in 2012.
 
Gross profit was $43.8 million compared to $46.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Gross margin was 31.3% compared to 33.3% in the fourth quarter of 2012. Product margins increased 40 basis points, offset primarily by deleverage in buying, distribution and occupancy costs as a result of the negative comparable store sales.
 
Operating income was $8.5 million and included $1.8 million in store asset impairment charges recorded in the fourth quarter. This compares to operating income of $14.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
 
Net income was $5.4 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, based on a weighted average diluted share count of 28.2 million shares and an effective tax rate of approximately 36% due to a one-time tax benefit related to return to provision adjustments. 
 
This compares to net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 of $9.8 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, based on a weighted average diluted share count of 28.0 million shares. Applying an expected long-term effective tax rate of 40%, adjusted net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $8.9 million, or $0.32 per diluted share.
 
“In fiscal 2014, we have developed several key initiatives to adapt to the changing teen retail landscape and to capitalize on the long-term opportunities to grow our business.”
 
“While fourth quarter results were as expected, we are not satisfied with this level of financial performance. I am, however, pleased with how we navigated the challenging retail environment, which reflects the disciplined execution by our team. 
 
We controlled costs, appropriately positioned our inventory levels and adhered to a planned promotional strategy in the quarter that delivered better product margins than the prior year,” commented Daniel Griesemer, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In fiscal 2014, we have developed several key initiatives to adapt to the changing teen retail landscape and to capitalize on the long-term opportunities to grow our business.”
