Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. reported net earnings of $1.16 per diluted share ($249.3 million) in the fiscal second quarter ended August 31, 2013, an increase of approximately 18.4% versus net earnings of $0.98 per diluted share ($224.3 million) in the same quarter a year ago.

Net sales for the fiscal second quarter of 2013 were approximately $2.824 billion, an increase of approximately 8.9% from net sales of approximately $2.593 billion reported in the fiscal second quarter of 2012.  Comparable store sales in the fiscal second quarter of 2013 increased by approximately 3.7%, compared with an increase of approximately 3.5% in last year's fiscal second quarter. 

During the fiscal second quarter of 2013, the Company repurchased approximately $257 million of its common stock, representing approximately 3.5 million shares.  As of August 31, 2013, the remaining balance of the existing share repurchase program authorized in December 2012 was approximately $1.8 billion.

For the fiscal first half ended August 31, 2013, the Company reported net earnings of $2.09 per diluted share ($451.8 million), an increase of approximately 11.8% over net earnings of $1.87 per diluted share ($431.2 million) in the corresponding period a year ago. 

Net sales for the fiscal first half of 2013 were approximately $5.436 billion, an increase of approximately 13.0% from net sales of approximately $4.811 billion in the corresponding period a year ago.  Comparable store sales for the fiscal first half of 2013 increased by approximately 3.5%, compared with an increase of approximately 3.3% in last year's fiscal first half.

The Company is modeling net earnings per diluted share in 2013 to be approximately $1.11 to $1.16 for the fiscal third quarter, $1.70 to $1.77 for the fiscal fourth quarter, and to be approximately $4.88 to $5.01 for the full year, which will include Cost Plus, Inc. ("World Market") and Linen Holdings for all of fiscal 2013.  The modeling of net earnings per diluted share is based upon a number of planning assumptions which will be described in the Company's second quarter of fiscal 2013 conference call.

The accompanying consolidated financial information for fiscal 2013 includes the accounts of Linen Holdings and World Market from the beginning of the fiscal year and for fiscal 2012, includes the accounts of Linen Holdings since the date of its acquisition on June 1, 2012 and World Market since the date of its acquisition on June 29, 2012. 

Linen Holdings is excluded from the comparable store sales calculations and will continue to be excluded on an ongoing basis as long as it does not meet the Company's definition of comparable store sales.  World Market is excluded from the comparable store sales calculations through the end of the fiscal first half of 2013 and will be included beginning with the fiscal third quarter of 2013.

During the fiscal second quarter, the Company opened one Bed Bath & Beyond store, one Christmas Tree Shops store, three buybuy BABY stores and one Harmon Face Values store. Consolidated store space, net of openings and closings for all our concepts, as of August 31, 2013 was approximately 42.3 million square feet. 

Since the beginning of the fiscal third quarter of 2013 on September 1, 2013, one World Market store and two Bed Bath & Beyond stores have been opened.  In addition, the Company is a partner in a joint venture which operates three stores in the Mexico City market under the name Bed Bath & Beyond.
