For the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, NYSE listed and clothing retailer, Gap expects diluted earnings per share (EPS) to be in the range of $0.78 to $0.79, up from $0.72 in same quarter of fiscal year 2013.

“Third quarter of fiscal 2014 diluted earnings per share range includes a non-recurring benefit of about $0.06, benefitting from a lower effective tax rate,” Gap said.

The retailer added that, it also expects both, gross margin rate and operating expenses in the third quarter, to be better compared to guidance given alongside its September 2014 sales announcement.

Meanwhile, for the four-week period ended November 1, 2014, sales fell 2.32% to $1.26 billion, from $1.29 billion for the four-week period ended November 2, 2013.

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, Gap’s net sales were marginally down to $3.97 billion compared with $3.98 billion, for the third quarter last year.
