  • First nine months Reported sales increase 8.0% to $1.80 billion; comparable sales increase 0.2%
  • Third quarter Reported EPS rises to $0.60 per share on a post-split basis, including net income of $0.01 per share from our luxury test

DSW Inc. (NYSE: DSW), a leading branded footwear and accessories retailer, announced financial results for the thirteen week period ended November 2, 2013, which compare to the thirteen week period ended October 27, 2012.

Mike MacDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer states, "A solid increase in total sales combined with disciplined execution and inventory management allowed us to increase our Adjusted earnings per share by 14%. We achieved our highest level of profitability in the third quarter while navigating through a promotional environment.  We were encouraged by the improvement in traffic and sales at the end of the quarter, as the fall selling season got off to a delayed start."

Mr. MacDonald added, "During the quarter we opened 16 new stores, including two small format stores, advanced our omni-channel work and implemented a number of systems initiatives. For the full year, we expect Adjusted EPS to range from $1.80 to $1.90 per share based on flat same store sales and 4% to 5% increase in Adjusted sales."

Third Quarter Operating Results

  • Reported sales increased 6.8% to $633 million compared to last year's third quarter sales of $593 million.
  • For the thirteen week period ended November 2, 2013, comparable sales decreased by 0.7%. This follows an increase of 6.3% during the thirteen week period ended October 27, 2012.
  • Reported net income was $55.0 million, or $0.60 per diluted share on 92.1 million weighted average shares outstanding, which included net after-tax income of $1.4 million, or $0.01 per share, from our luxury test.  This compares to Reported net income in the third quarter of 2012 of $50.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, which included a $3.6 million award, or $0.04 per share, resulting from the 2005 credit card litigation, as well as $0.2 million in legacy charges from RVI.
  • Net income, adjusted for the results of our luxury test and legacy charges from RVI, was $53.6 million, or $0.58 per diluted share on 92.1 million weighted average shares outstanding. This compares to Adjusted net income for the same period last year of $46.6 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, on 91.0 million weighted average shares outstanding.  

Nine Months Ended November 2, 2013 Operating Results

  • Reported sales increased 8.0% to $1.8 billion compared to last year's sales of $1.7 billion.
  • For the thirty-nine week period ended November 2, 2013, comparable sales increased by 0.2%. This follows an increase of 6.1% during the thirty-nine week period ended October 27, 2012.
  • Reported net income was $123 million, or $1.34 per diluted share, on 91.8 million weighted average shares outstanding, which included a net after-tax loss of $11.5 million, or $0.13 per share, from our luxury test, and a net after-tax charge of $9.4 million, or $0.10 per share, from the termination of the pension plan assumed in conjunction with the RVI merger. This compares to Reported net income in the same period last year of $119.3 million, which included $5.2 million in after-tax non-cash charges related to RVI and a $3.6 million after-tax award from credit card litigation. Reported EPS for the thirty-nine week period ended October 27, 2012 was $1.32 per share.
  • Net income, adjusted for the net loss from our luxury test and legacy charges from RVI, was $144.1 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, on 91.8 million weighted average shares outstanding.

  • Cash, short term and long term investments totaled $522 million compared to $430 million in the third quarter last year.
  • Inventories were flat at $424 million compared to $422 million during the third quarter last year, in line with expectations. On a cost per square foot basis, inventories decreased by 2.2% at the end of quarter.

Non-GAAP Measures

The unaudited reconciliation of adjusted results should not be construed as an alternative to the reported results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). These financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The company believes that this non-GAAP information is useful as an additional means for investors to evaluate the company's operating performance, when reviewed in conjunction with the company's GAAP statements. These amounts are not determined in accordance with GAAP and therefore, should not be used exclusively in evaluating the company's business and operations.
