10:00 EDTAEOAmerican Eagle rises on raised Q3 guidance, levels to watch
Subscribe for More Information
08:03 EDTAEOAmerican Eagle raises Q3 adjusted EPS view to 22c from 17c-19c
Consensus is 18c. Including restructuring and asset impairment charges of (17c), GAAP earnings are estimated to be 5c per share. Last year, the company earned adjusted EPS of 19c in the third quarter, which excluded asset impairment charges of (6c). The earnings improvement over last year was primarily due to an improvement in markdowns and lower expenses. Third quarter net revenues declined slightly on a comparable sales decline of 5%. The EPS guidance excludes charges of approximately (17c) primarily due to store impairments and corporate overhead reductions related to the company’s profit improvement initiatives. These actions are expected to enable the company to fund key initiatives and generate savings to strengthen future earnings. “Third quarter earnings exceeded our expectations and margins were ahead of last year. We are encouraged by our ability to reduce promotional activity, particularly given the challenging and highly promotional retail climate,” said Jay Schottenstein, Interim CEO. “The team is making steady progress on merchandise improvements. Yet as we approach the holidays, we remain cautious given the ongoing weakness in mall traffic. The restructuring activities reflect our resolve to strengthen our business to deliver higher profitability and returns to shareholders.” Third quarter ending inventories are expected to be down, consistent with prior guidance.
