Shares of women's accessory company Vera Bradley (VRA) declined after reporting weak first quarter revenue which reflected a harsh environment over the quarter. WHAT'S NEW: Vera Bradley's Q1 EPS was 16c, which was higher than analyst's consensus of 13c. The company's Q1 revenue as $113.5M, which was below expectations. The accessory company said despite a higher than anticipated Q1 EPS result, it continues to face a difficult environment, one that is proving much more challenging than it foresaw two short months ago. Vera Bradley cited the sales miss to guidance primarily being due to lower than expected orders from the company's Indirect specialty retail partners, weaker than expected comparable store sales performance in the company's retail stores, and a shortfall at the company's annual outlet sale. Vera Bradley expects Q2 EPS to be 18c-20c which is lower than the consensus analyst forecast of 30c. The company foresees Q2 revenue to be $113M-$120M which is lower than the $127.48M that analyst predict.

The company expects FY14 revenue to range between $510M-$530M which is lower than expectations of $553.69M. The accessory company announced today that it's products will be sold at select Macy's (M) locations by mid-July. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the company's Q1 earnings conference call, Vera Bradley said that the short term will remain challenging and it will take time for marketing plans to take hold. The company expects to incur pre-tax charges related to the exit from Japan during Q3 of approximately $2M, or 3c per share. FY15 direct segment comps are expected to be down in the mid single digits and the company says its still identifying cost reductions. Vera Bradley expects to cut costs in manufacturing and sourcing but aims to open seven outlets this year.
