For the thirteen weeks ended September 1, 2012:
“We are very pleased with the strength of our second quarter performance,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Glenn Lyon. “Our ability to achieve double digit comps in the second quarter, on top of a double digit comp increase in the prior year period illustrates our ability to further expand our leadership position in athletic footwear.
“Second quarter sales were driven by market share gains in running and basketball as we have been able to capitalize on recent trends in each category enabled by our strong relationships with both vendors and consumers.
“Importantly, we translated a 16% top-line increase into 26% earnings growth even as we make the necessary investments in order to successfully execute our omni-channel vision. We move forward with sound strategies in place that we believe will further improve our consumer mindshare, deliver consistent sales and earnings growth, and return increased value to our shareholders.”
As of September 1, 2012, consolidated merchandise inventories increased 9.0% to $250.6 million compared to $229.8 million as of August 27, 2011. For Finish Line, merchandise inventories increased by 6.3%.
As of September 1, 2012, the company had no interest-bearing debt and $254.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $289.6 million a year ago.
Based on second quarter results, the company now expects earnings per share for the fiscal year ending March 2, 2013 to increase between 6 to 9% over the $1.53 in fiscal 2012, which excludes the $0.07 impact from the 53rd week, up from its most recent guidance of 6 to 7% growth. This guidance assumes an annual comparable store sales increase of 6 to 8%.
