Nov '10
Macy's, Inc. reported continued strong financial results for the third quarter of 2010, with sales, earnings and cash flow that exceeded the company's expectations. Earnings were 2 cents per diluted share for the third quarter of 2010, ended Oct. 30, 2010. This compares with a loss of 8 cents per share in last year's third quarter.

Third quarter 2010 results included 6 cents per diluted share of expenses associated with the repurchase of debt in the third quarter. Third quarter 2009 results included 5 cents per diluted share of restructuring costs related to division consolidations and localization initiatives. Excluding these items from both periods, earnings were 8 cents per diluted share in the third quarter of 2010, compared with a loss of 3 cents per diluted share in the third quarter last year.

"Throughout 2010, we have gained confidence and momentum as customers have responded favorably to our execution of key strategies developed and activated over the past few years. This bodes well for our business as we enter the holiday selling season with a differentiated and tailored merchandise offering, compelling marketing, and an energized organization of store associates focused on engaging customers," said Terry J. Lundgren, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Macy's, Inc.

"We are proud of the results we have generated as My Macy's has firmly taken root, creating a leading nationwide brand with a local focus in each market. Simultaneously, Bloomingdale's has aggressively capitalized on the return of the upscale customer and has reinforced its reputation for extraordinary contemporary fashion and service. Both brands remain in the early stages of benefitting from an enhanced omnichannel approach that integrates the offerings of Macy's and Bloomingdale's stores, online sites, mobile technology and social media.

"We are productively using the significant amount of cash being generated by our business to further strengthen our balance sheet. In 2010, we have retired a total of more than $1.2 billion of debt using excess cash. This includes $1 billion in repurchase transactions on the open market in the first and third quarters, as previously announced," Lundgren said.

For the first three quarters of 2010, Macy's, Inc.'s diluted earnings per share were 42 cents, compared with a loss of 27 cents per diluted share in the first three quarters of 2009. Excluding 10 cents per share of expenses associated with the repurchase of debt in the first and third quarters, earnings were 52 cents per diluted share in the first three quarters of 2010. Excluding 28 cents per diluted share of restructuring costs related to division consolidations and localization initiatives, earnings were 1 cent per diluted share in the first three quarters of 2009.

Sales
Sales in the third quarter totaled $5.623 billion, up 6.6 percent from total sales of $5.277 billion in the third quarter of 2010. On a same-store basis, Macy's, Inc.'s third quarter sales were up 3.9 percent.
