Ross Stores delivers strong outlook

May '08
Mr. Balmuth also noted, "Our balance sheet and cash flows remain strong. We continued to return capital to stockholders during the quarter through our stock repurchase and dividend programs.

During the first three months of fiscal 2008, we repurchased 2.5 million shares of common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $77 million.

We remain on track to complete half of our current two-year $600 million stock repurchase program this year. In addition, we expect to complete this two-year program without taking on any incremental long-term debt."

Looking ahead, Mr. Balmuth said, "For the second quarter ending August 2, 2008, we are forecasting same store sales gains of 1% to 3% and earnings per share in the range of $.43 to $.47, for a targeted increase of 16% to 27% over the $.37 in earnings per share for the second quarter ended August 4, 2007.

For the fiscal 2008 year ending January 31, 2009, we are now projecting earnings per share in the range of $2.19 to $2.29, which would represent growth of 15% to 21% over the $1.90 in earnings per share for fiscal 2007."
