Journeys & Lids Sports drive Genesco performance
May '11
Genesco Inc reported earnings from continuing operations for the first quarter ended April 30, 2011 of $15.0 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $8.6 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the first quarter ended May 1, 2010. Fiscal 2012 first quarter earnings reflected pretax charges of $1.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, related to fixed asset impairments and other expenses. Fiscal 2011 first quarter earnings reflected pretax charges of $2.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, primarily for fixed asset impairments.

Adjusted for the listed items in both periods, earnings from continuing operations were $15.7 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the first quarter of Fiscal 2012, compared to $10.1 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, for the first quarter of Fiscal 2011. For consistency with Fiscal 2012's previously announced earnings expectations and the adjusted results for the prior period announced last year, neither of which reflected the listed items, the Company believes that disclosure of earnings from continuing operations adjusted for those items will be useful to investors. A reconciliation of the adjusted financial measures to their corresponding measures as reported pursuant to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is included in Schedule B to this press release.

Net sales for the first quarter of Fiscal 2012 increased 20% to $482 million from $401 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2011. Comparable store sales in the first quarter of Fiscal 2012 increased by 14%. The Journeys Group's comparable store sales for the quarter rose by 15%, the Lids Sports Group's increased by 16%, Underground Station's comps were up 6%, and Johnston & Murphy Retail's increased by 10%. Internet and catalog sales across the Company increased 24% on a comp basis in the quarter.

Robert J. Dennis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Genesco, said, "We were very pleased with the strong sales and earnings growth we generated in the first quarter. Our performance was driven by our two largest businesses, Journeys and Lids Sports, both of which delivered mid-teens comparable store sales increases and grew operating income 94% and 49%, respectively. These contributions helped us achieve a significant improvement in profitability and provided us with good momentum to start the year."

Dennis also discussed the Company's updated outlook. "Based on our first quarter performance and current visibility, we are raising our Fiscal 2012 guidance. We now expect full year diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $2.90 to $2.97, which represents a 17% to 20% increase over last year's earnings, up from our previous guidance range of $2.78 to $2.85. Consistent with previous guidance, these expectations do not include expected non-cash asset impairments and other charges, which are projected to total approximately $4 million to $5 million pretax, or $0.10 to $0.13 per share, after tax, in Fiscal 2012. This guidance assumes comparable store sales of 5% to 6% for the full fiscal year."
