The TJX Companies Inc, the leading off-price retailer of apparel and home fashions in the U.S. and worldwide, announced sales and earnings results for the first quarter ended April 26, 2008. Net sales for the first quarter of Fiscal 2009 increased 6% to $4.4 billion, and consolidated comparable store sales increased 3% over last year.

Net income for the first quarter was $194 million, and diluted earnings per share were $.43 compared to $.34 last year. This year's first quarter results include a benefit of $12 million, which rounds to $.02 per share, due to certain tax-related adjustments unanticipated at the beginning of the quarter.

Prior year's first quarter results included an after-tax charge of $12 million, which rounds to $.03 per share, with respect to the computer intrusion(s). Excluding these items, first quarter Fiscal 2009 adjusted diluted earnings per share of $.41 increased 11% over the adjusted $.37 for the prior year.

Carol Meyrowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer of The TJX Companies, Inc., stated, “We are pleased with our first quarter performance, as we once again drove strong sales, merchandise margins, and profit growth despite the challenges of the consumer environment and unfavorable weather in the first two months.

While we continue our sharp execution of our off-price business model and deliver strong results, we are also funding our expansion domestically and internationally. We are excited by our prospects for growth in Europe, having opened our first HomeSense stores in the U.K. and another T.K. Maxx store in Germany. As we move into the second quarter, we are very well positioned to continue to capitalize upon merchandise opportunities and deliver great value to our customers every day.”
