The Children's achieves record first quarter net income
21
May '10
The Children's Place Retail Stores, Inc., the largest pure-play children's specialty apparel retailer in North America, announced record first quarter net income from continuing operations of $28.0 million, or $1.00 per diluted share for the thirteen-week period ended May 1, 2010, compared to $23.7 million, or $0.80 per share in the first quarter of 2009.

Net sales increased 5.0% to $422.1 million in the first quarter of 2010, compared to $401.9 in the first quarter of 2009. Comparable retail sales, which include online sales, declined 0.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to a 1.0% increase the previous year. During the first quarter of 2010, comparable store sales declined 1.7% in the U.S. and 4.6% in Canada, while online sales increased 22.0%.

"We delivered record financial results and made significant progress on key initiatives in the first quarter of 2010," commented Jane Elfers, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Children's Place. "We strengthened the senior leadership team with the appointment of five talented and experienced executives to head our merchandising, planning, outlet, information technology and human resources operations. In addition, we accelerated our new store openings, sharpened our marketing programs and continued to drive double-digit online growth."

"Looking ahead, we believe The Children's Place is well positioned to continue growing market share as we execute on our growth initiatives," Elfers added. "We will continue to keep a tight rein on expenses as consumer spending remains constrained by lingering weakness in the economic environment."

The comparability of income from continuing operations is affected by several transactions that occurred in the first quarter of 2009, which were highlighted in the Company's earnings release on May 21, 2009.Excluding those transactions that affect comparability between quarters, adjusted income from continuing operations after tax in the first quarter of 2010 increased 28.7% from $21.8 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2009. Adjusted income from continuing operations excluding transactions that affect comparability is a non-GAAP measure. The Company believes the excluded items are not indicative of the performance of its core business and that by providing this supplemental disclosure to investors it will facilitate comparisons of its past and present performance. A reconciliation of income from continuing operations as reported is included in this press release in Table 3.

Net income, including the impact of discontinued operations, was $27.9 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2010 compared to net income of $23.5 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

During the first quarter of 2010, the Company opened 16 stores and closed one.
