Shoe Carnival Inc, a leading retailer of value-priced footwear and accessories, announced sales and earnings for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 2, 2008. The fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 included 13 weeks compared to 14 weeks in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 and the full fiscal year of 2007 included 52 weeks compared with 53 weeks in the full fiscal year of 2006.

Fourth Quarter Results:
Net earnings for the thirteen-week fourth quarter were $1.1 million compared to net earnings of $5.1 million in the fourteen-week fourth quarter ended February 3, 2007. Diluted earnings per share were $0.09 per share compared to $0.37 per share last year. The extra week included in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006, increased diluted earnings per share in that quarter by approximately $0.05.

Sales for the thirteen-week period ended February 2, 2008, were $164.3 million compared to sales of $177.2 million for the fourteen-week period ended February 3, 2007. Sales of approximately $11.5 million were recorded in the extra week of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006. Comparable store sales for the thirteen-week period ended February 2, 2008, decreased 5.7 percent compared with the thirteen-week period ended February 3, 2007.

The gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of 2007 was 27.5 percent compared to 28.1 percent for the fourth quarter of 2006. As a percentage of sales, the merchandise margin remained unchanged from last year's fourth quarter, while buying, distribution and occupancy costs increased 0.6 percent. The increase in buying, distribution and occupancy costs, as a percentage of sales, was due primarily to the deleveraging effect of lower sales.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter were $43.6 million, or 26.5 percent of sales, compared to $41.8 million, or 23.6 percent of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2006. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was due to operating an additional 20 stores during the quarter compared to same period last year and recording a non-cash impairment charge to assets for certain stores management has committed to close.
