Penney Company announced that it has received $500M of incremental bank commitments to increase the size of the Revolving Line of Credit under its existing Senior Secured Asset-Based Credit Facility to $2.35B from $1.85B.

The $2.35B ABL revolving line of credit, which will also mature in June 2019, will remain available for seasonal working capital needs and general corporate purposes. Marvin Ellison, chief executive officer, said, "We proactively pursued this transaction to reduce our long-term debt and ongoing interest expense and to further enhance our financial flexibility while maintaining our strong liquidity position as we continue to make progress on our goal of $1.2B in EBITDA by 2017."
11:35 EDTM, JCPDillard's sinks to 52-week low after joining chorus of 'disappointed' retailers
Shares of Dillard's (DDS), a retailer of fashion apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing, are falling to their worst level in a year after the company became the latest in its industry to report lower than expected third quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Dillard's reported Q3 earnings per share of $1.19 and revenue of $1.435B, narrowly missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.20 and $1.49B, respectively. Same-store sales for the quarter fell 4%. Total merchandise sales decreased 3% for the 13-week period ended October 31. Weaker performing categories were men's apparel and accessories and ladies' accessories and lingerie with notable weakness in home and furniture the company explained. Dillard's Chief Executive Officer, William T. Dillard, II, stated, "We are disappointed with our third quarter sales performance and in the resulting decline in profit. Share buyback remained a high priority, and we repurchased $175 million of stock under our share repurchase program." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Gross margin from retail operations improved 11 basis points of sales for the 13 weeks ended October 31 compared to the prior year third quarter. Consolidated gross margin for the 13 weeks ended October 31 declined 30 basis points of sales compared to the prior year third quarter. The disparity between retail and consolidated gross margin performance is attributable to increased revenue at CDI, which is a substantially lower margin business. Inventory increased 6% at October 31 compared to November 1, 2014. For FY15, the company expects capital expenditures of $150M. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dillard's fell $5.81, or 7.5%, to $71.79 on more than three times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $68.05. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost about 36% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing retailers include Macy's (M), Kohl's (KSS), JC Penny (JCP), Sears (SHLD) and Nordstrom (JWN).
