GCO Genesco Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results BY PR Newswire — 7:42 AM ET 05/31/2013
NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesco Inc. (GCO) today reported earnings from continuing operations for the first quarter ended May 4, 2013, of $18.5 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $20.8 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, for the first quarter ended April 28, 2012.
Fiscal 2014 first quarter results reflect expenses of $4.2 million, or $0.16 per diluted share after tax, including $2.9 million of expenses related to deferred purchase price payments in connection with the acquisition of Schuh Group Limited, which are required to be expensed as compensation because the payment is contingent upon the payees' continued employment; and $1.3 million in asset impairment charges and network intrusion expenses. Fiscal 2013 first quarter results reflect expenses of $3.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share after tax, primarily including deferred purchase price payments in connection with the acquisition of Schuh Group Limited.
Adjusted for the items described above in both periods, earnings from continuing operations were $22.2 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $23.8 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, for the first quarter of Fiscal 2013. For consistency with Fiscal 2014's previously announced earnings expectations and with previously reported adjusted results for the prior year period, the Company believes that the disclosure of the results from continuing operations adjusted for these items will be useful to investors. Additionally, the Company believes that the presentation of earnings from continuing operations before the compensation expense associated with the Schuh deferred purchase price will enable investors to understand the effect attributable to incorporating a continuing employment condition into the obligation to pay deferred purchase price. A reconciliation of earnings and earnings per share from continuing operations in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles with the adjusted earnings and earnings per share numbers presented in this paragraph is set forth on Schedule B to this press release.
Net sales for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014 decreased 1.5% to $591 million from $600 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2013. Consolidated first quarter 2014 comparable sales, including same store sales and comparable e-commerce and catalog sales, decreased 4%, with a 2% decrease in the Journeys Group, a 6% decrease in the Lids Sports Group, an 11% decrease in the Schuh Group, and a 7% increase in the Johnston & Murphy Group.
Robert J. Dennis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Genesco (GCO), said, "After a slow start in February, which we attribute primarily to delayed processing of federal income tax refunds, comparable sales improved for the balance of the quarter, despite continued headwinds from unseasonably cold weather. Strong gains in our direct channel helped partially offset soft retail traffic, which combined with well-controlled expenses allowed us to deliver earnings that were slightly ahead of expectations.
"The improved sales trends we experienced during the March - April period have accelerated during the second quarter so far with May comparable sales up 1% through May 25. We are encouraged by the recent momentum and optimistic about our prospects for the upcoming back to school season.
"Based on first quarter performance and current visibility, we remain comfortable with our previously issued guidance for adjusted Fiscal 2014 diluted earnings per share in the range of $5.57 to $5.67, a 10% to 12% increase over Fiscal 2013's adjusted earnings per share of $5.06. Consistent with our previous guidance, these expectations do not include non-cash asset impairments and network intrusion expenses, which we estimate will be in the range of $3.4 million to $4.4 million pretax, or $0.09 to $0.12 per share, after tax, in Fiscal 2014. They also do not reflect compensation expense associated with the Schuh deferred purchase price as described above, which is currently estimated at approximately $11.5 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the full year. This guidance assumes a comparable sales increase in the low single digit range 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, "We believe the investments we are making in our businesses, including improved e-commerce infrastructure and selective store openings, are delivering solid returns and positioning the Company for sustainable sales and earnings growth in the years ahead. Our teams continue to execute at a high level, and we remain on track to achieve our 5-year target of $3.5 billion in sales and an operating margin of 9.5% by fiscal 2017."

What's in Store for Genesco's Earnings? By Dan Caplinger for Motley Fool May 29, 2013
Tomorrow, Genesco (NYSE: GCO) will release its latest quarterly results. With the stock having set new all-time highs throughout the past year, investors are hoping that the good times will continue for quite a while longer.
Genesco is an almost unknown company, as a holding company with several different segments. Many shoppers are more familiar with its brand names, which include the Johnston and Murphy line of dress shoes and luggage and accessories for business shoppers, as well as Lids Sports and Journeys. Let's take an early look at what's been happening with Genesco over the past quarter and what we're likely to see in its quarterly report.
Stats on Genesco
Analyst EPS Estimate $0.87
Change From Year-Ago EPS (11.2%)

Earnings Beats in Past 4 Quarters 4

How will Genesco's earnings fare this quarter? Analysts have been bearish on Genesco's short-term earnings outlook, marking down April-quarter estimates by $0.16 per share over the past few months. But they've held steady to a penny higher on their views for the current and next fiscal years, and that's been enough to push the stock up 14% since late February.
Much of the pessimism regarding the just-ended quarter came from Genesco's conference call following its fourth-quarter earnings release in March. In large part because of the strike in the National Hockey League, the company's Lids Sports segment suffered a 10% decline in same-store sales during the fourth quarter, and Genesco believes that the segment will continue to struggle during the first half of this year as well. In addition, both Journeys and Lids could suffer from higher payroll taxes in the U.S., although it's unclear whether consumers will get used to those higher taxes or whether they'll continue to weigh on disposable income in the future.
But the company hasn't given up on its growth prospects. Canada has been an increasingly important market for Genesco, with 30 new stores during the past fiscal year resulting in a total of 127 locations. Similarly, the company's Schuh chain in the U.K. has been growing quickly, with Genesco accelerating plans to open new stores over the past year.
The shoe business has been challenging for both Genesco and its peers. With notoriously fickle consumers following changing fashion trends, style leader Deckers Outdoor (NASDAQ: DECK) has seen extreme volatility over the past year as customers lost interest in brand offerings like Teva and UGG. Crocs (NASDAQ: CROX) has seen a similar stock-price trajectory, with a late-2012 slump giving way to a big recovery in recent months on hopes that the company's amazing recovery from its near-failure in the mid-2000s can continue.
In Genesco's report, watch closely to see how the late-winter and early-spring months have treated each of its various segments. With the NHL back in action, Lids can hope for a recovery, but one key will be whether the shoe businesses can continue to drive growth into the future.

Judge Rules for Genesco in $1.5B Buyout Friday December 28, 6:43 am ET By Erik Schelzig, AP Business Writer Genesco Wins Lawsuit Over Stalled $1.5B Deal; Fraud Claim Denied
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A judge ruled Thursday that Genesco Inc. executives did not commit fraud during negotiations over a $1.5 billion acquisition and that fellow mall retailer The Finish Line Inc. must complete the purchase.
ADVERTISEMENT Nashville Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle dismissed Finish Line's claims that Genesco withheld key financial information that could have signaled worse-than-expected earnings after the deal closed in June.
Lyle said Indianapolis-based Finish Line and investment bank UBS AG were sophisticated enough to know what they were getting into with the $54.50-per-share purchase.
