West Marine, Inc. reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 28, 2014.
 
Highlights: 
-Net revenues were $236.5 million, a decrease of 0.1% compared to last year.
-Comparable store sales decreased by 0.7%.
-Pre-tax income was $32.4 million, compared to pre-tax income of $37.5 million last year.
-Net income was $18.3 million, or $0.75 per share, compared to net income of $22.2 million, or $0.90 per share last year.
-The company is lowering 2014 full-year guidance, with pre-tax income now expected to be in the range of $8.5 million to $11.0 million, compared to pre-tax income of $15.3 million for 2013.
-The company remained debt-free at quarter-end.
 
Matt Hyde, West Marine's CEO, commented, "We were disappointed by second quarter sales, which were about flat to last year. At the product level, we saw the strongest increases in our merchandise expansion categories, including paddle sports and women's clothing, but sales of core products were soft. During the second half of the year, we'll continue to reduce operating expenses to drive nearer-term profitability, while continuing our careful investments in our strategic initiatives to drive long-term profitable growth."
 
Progress on our growth strategies year-to-date through the second quarter was as follows:
eCommerce: Sales from our eCommerce website were up 0.5% and represented 7.2% of total sales, the same as last year. We believe our eCommerce results so far this year were negatively impacted by implementation delays and fixes required in connection with the transition to our new eCommerce platform. We remain committed to our three to five-year goal for eCommerce to represent 15% of sales.
 
Store optimization: Sales through our optimized stores increased to 41.5% of total sales compared to 34.0% last year. This year-over-year increase supports our three to five-year goal to deliver 50% of our total sales through optimized stores.
 
Merchandise expansion: Sales in these product lines, which include footwear, apparel, clothing accessories, fishing products and paddle sports equipment, were up by 12.1%, with core product sales down 2.2%, compared to last year.
 
Net revenues for the 26 weeks ended June 28, 2014 were $349.8 million, a decrease of 0.3%, compared to net revenues of $351.0 million for the 26 weeks ended June 29, 2013. Comparable store sales decreased by 1.1% for the first six months of 2014 versus the same period last year. For the first six months last year, we reported a 4.0% decrease in comparable store sales.
