-Consolidated net sales were $351.1 million, an increase of 10% over the prior year period.

-On a GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share were $0.10.
-Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which excludes the impact of start up costs related to the launch  of Macy’s business, were $0.20.

“We are pleased with the start to Fiscal 2014 as improving trends in our Finish Line running business combined with continued strength in basketball and disciplined expense management drove our results,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Glenn Lyon.

“Strategically, the quarter was marked by significant progress on our key growth initiatives including the well-received launch of our Macy’s business in stores and online and the expansion of the Running Specialty Group footprint with the acquisition of some very productive doors. We have clear vision and sound strategies in place to transform our Company into a premier, multi-divisional, omni-channel retailer and drive increased value for our shareholders,” Lyon added.

As of June 1, 2013, consolidated merchandise inventories increased 23.7% to $292.6 million compared to $236.5 million as of June 2, 2012. The increase resulted primarily from the start-up of Macy’s business. For Finish Line, merchandise inventories increased 2.6%.
