American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. reported earnings of $0.02 per diluted share for the first quarter ended May 3, 2014, compared to adjusted earnings of $0.18 per diluted share for the comparable quarter last year.
 
Jay Schottenstein, Interim CEO stated, “Results were consistent with our expectations. The quarter reflected weak sales and increased markdowns. We are committed to improved profitability and are working hard to implement our plan to strengthen our brands, channels and operations.
 
"Specific actions underway include continuing to build strong omni-channel capabilities, rationalizing our store fleet, reducing expenses, growing international licensed stores, and most importantly, delivering great merchandise and customer experience across our brands. Our focus is on leveraging our strong brands and talented team in order to deliver long-term profitable growth and enhanced value for our shareholders.”
 
First Quarter 2014 Results
-Total net revenue decreased 5% to $646 million from $679 million last year.
-Total revenue included growth from non-comp factory stores, international stores and licensed store revenue.
-Consolidated comparable sales decreased 10%, following a 5% decrease last year.
-Gross profit decreased 15% to $226 million and 420 basis points to 34.9% as a rate to revenue.
