Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Journeys Group comp sales up 12%

 

Press Release:

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

 

Genesco Inc. (NYSE: GCO) today reported earnings from continuing operations of $31.4 million, or $1.34 per diluted share for the fourth quarter ended January 29, 2011, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $25.8 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter ended January 30, 2010. Fiscal 2011 fourth quarter earnings were favorably impacted by $0.08 per share due to a lower effective tax rate offset by pretax items totaling $2.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, after tax, primarily related to network intrusion expenses, fixed asset impairments and purchase price accounting adjustments. Fiscal 2010 fourth quarter earnings reflected pretax charges of $2.9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, after tax, primarily related to asset impairments, loss on early retirement of debt and tax rate adjustments, partially offset by a gain related to other legal matters.

 

Adjusted for the listed items in both periods, earnings from continuing operations were $31.3 million, or $1.33 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2011, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $27.7 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2010. For consistency with Fiscal 2011's previously announced earnings expectations and the adjusted results for the prior period announced last year, neither of which reflected the listed items, the Company believes that disclosure of earnings from continuing operations adjusted for those items will be useful to investors. A reconciliation of the adjusted financial measures to their corresponding measures as reported pursuant to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is included in Schedule B to this press release.

 

Net sales for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2011 increased 17% to $560.5 million from $479.0 million in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2010. Comparable store sales in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2011 increased by 9%. The Lids Sports Group's comparable store sales increased by 6%, the Journeys Group increased by 12%, Johnston & Murphy Retail increased by 12%, and Underground Station decreased by 4%.

 

Robert J. Dennis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Genesco, said, "We are very pleased with our fourth quarter results. Solid organic growth combined with contributions from our recent acquisitions drove quarterly sales above $500 million. Our top-line performance also helped us achieve our highest level of fourth quarter profitability in four years, representing a great way to close out a successful Fiscal 2011.

 

"Fiscal 2012 is off to a good start with February comparable store sales across all the Company's retail businesses up 10%. While we expect these trends will moderate, we feel good about our prospects for spring based on our merchandising strategies and solid inventory position.

 

"Based on current visibility we expect Fiscal 2012 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $2.78 to $2.85, which represents a 12% to 15% increase over last year's earnings. Consistent with previous guidance, these expectations do not include expected non-cash asset impairments and other charges, which are projected to total approximately $4 million to $5 million pretax, or $0.10 to $0.13 per share, after tax, in Fiscal 2012. This guidance assumes comparable sales of 3% for the full fiscal year." A reconciliation of the adjusted financial measures cited in the guidance to their corresponding measures as reported pursuant to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is included in Schedule B to this press release.

 

Dennis concluded, "Our Fiscal 2011 performance underscores our key competitive advantages, especially in our two largest businesses, the Journeys Group and the Lids Sports Group and, with regard to Lids Sports, is an early validation of our strategy to create a leading destination for licensed sports merchandise and team apparel. We now have two very strong and differentiated growth vehicles, supported by strong performances from Johnston & Murphy and Licensed Brands, and a solid balance sheet to support our expansion plans. Looking ahead, we believe that our business model will generate solid cash flow and put us in a position to pursue further growth opportunities."

 

Fiscal Year 2011

 

The Company also reported earnings from continuing operations for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2011, of $54.5 million, or $2.29 per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $29.1 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2010. Fiscal 2011 earnings reflected after-tax charges of $0.19 per diluted share, including asset impairments, purchase price accounting adjustments, network intrusion-related expenses, flood loss and other legal matters, partially offset by a lower effective tax rate. Fiscal 2010 earnings reflected after-tax charges of $0.56 per diluted share, including asset impairments, loss on early retirement of debt and tax rate adjustments, partially offset by a gain related to other legal matters. In addition, Fiscal 2010 reflected additional interest expense due to the adoption in the first quarter of Fiscal 2010 of FSP APB 14-1, a new accounting standard that applied to the Company's convertible debt.

 

Adjusted for the listed items in both years, earnings from continuing operations were $59.0 million, or $2.48 per diluted share, for Fiscal 2011, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $43.1 million, or $1.87 per diluted share, for Fiscal 2010. For consistency with previously announced earnings expectations, which did not reflect the listed items, the Company believes that disclosure of earnings from continuing operations adjusted for those items will be useful to investors. A reconciliation of the adjusted financial measures to their corresponding measures as reported pursuant to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is included in Schedule B to this press release. Net sales for Fiscal 2011 increased 13.7% to $1.79 billion from $1.57 billion in Fiscal 2010.
