Citi Trends expects earnings of $1.10 to $1.15 a share

Citi Trends Inc reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 2, 2008.

The Company's 2007 fiscal year contained the traditional 52 weeks, whereas, fiscal 2006 contained 53 weeks, with the extra week falling in the fourth quarter.

Accordingly, comparisons of total sales and net income for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2007 to the same periods in 2006 are affected by an extra week in 2006.
However, for comparable store sales, the Company is reporting on a comparable weeks basis (e.g. the 13 weeks ended February 2, 2008 compared to the 13 weeks ended February 3, 2007).

Financial Highlights – Fourth quarter ended February 2, 2008:
Total sales in the 13-week quarter ended February 2, 2008 increased 6.2% to $134.6 million compared with $126.8 million in the 14-week quarter ended February 3, 2007.

Comparable store sales decreased 1.1%, comparing the 13 weeks ended February 2, 2008 to the 13 weeks ended February 3, 2007.

Net income was $8.4 million compared with $10.4 million in last year's fourth quarter. Earnings per diluted share was $0.59 in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to $0.73 in 2006.

The decline in fourth quarter earnings was a result of the negative comparable store sales and a related need to increase clearance markdowns, together with the inclusion of the extra week in 2006.

However, these factors were partially offset by a favorable effective income tax rate in 2007 due to income tax credits and tax-exempt income increasing, while pretax income was decreasing.
