Genesco Inc. Research Report
Genesco reported a 10 percent increase in revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, offset by higher expenses, therefore reporting lower profit. Higher expenses were due to a big network intrusion-related charge. The adjusted earnings and revenue beat analysts' estimates, with all the business segments seeing sales growth in the quarter. Fiscal year 2014 had a slow start, with February consolidated comparable sales falling nine percent, but improving along the way. The company noted that most of the negative factors identified in the recent performance are only temporary, thus announcing a full year 2014 guidance in line with analysts' estimates. 2014 EPS is expected to be around $5.57 to $5.67, which represents a 10 percent to 12 percent increase over 2013's EPS.
