07:11 EDTFDOFamily Dollar says winter weather had at least 5c negative impact to Q2 EPS
Family Dollar Stores CEO Howard Levine said, “Our second quarter results did not meet our expectations. The 2013 holiday season was challenged by a more promotional competitive environment and a more financially constrained consumer. In addition, like many retailers, our second quarter results were significantly impacted by severe winter weather, which resulted in numerous store closings, disrupted merchandise deliveries and higher than expected utility and store maintenance expenses. Notwithstanding the macro-economic pressure, competitive environment and severe weather, we are not satisfied with our results, and we hold ourselves accountable for improving our performance. To that end, we have initiated an in-depth business review to identify opportunities to strengthen our value proposition, increase operational efficiencies and improve financial performance.” The company estimates that the negative financial impact in Q2 from the adverse winter weather was at least 5c of earnings per diluted share.
