Pacific Sunwear's Young Mens biz perks up in Q3
Nov '09
Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc announced that net sales for the third quarter (13 weeks) of fiscal 2009 ended October 31, 2009 were $268 million versus net sales from continuing operations of $324 million for the third quarter (13 weeks) of fiscal 2008 ended November 1, 2008. Total Company same-store sales decreased 18 percent during the period.

The Company recorded a net loss of $10.9 million, or $(0.17) per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 compared to net loss from continuing operations of $3.5 million, or $(0.05) per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2008.

"Through the first 11 weeks of the third quarter, our business performed at the higher end of our internal expectations led by some improving trends in our Young Mens business," stated Gary Schoenfeld, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We've since seen a precipitous decline across both genders during the last two weeks of the third quarter and into the first two weeks of the fourth quarter. Thus, while we still expect an improvement over the fourth quarter last year, we remain intently focused on several key initiatives toward getting this company turned around."

Financial Outlook for Fourth Fiscal Quarter of 2009
Assuming a same-store sales percentage decline in the low twenties for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, the Company expects to report a loss of approximately $(0.28) to $(0.35) per share. This earnings range includes estimated non-cash store asset impairment charges of approximately $5 million. Any non-cash tax valuation allowance charges or additional store asset impairment charges that the Company may incur during the fourth quarter would increase the level of losses for the quarter.

Pacific Sunwear is a leading lifestyle specialty retailer rooted in the youth culture of California. The Company sells casual apparel with a limited selection of accessories and footwear designed to meet the needs of teens and young adults. As of October 31, 2009, the Company operated 904 stores in 50 states and Puerto Rico.
