American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. Research Report

On August 5, 2013, American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. (American Eagle) announced its revised Q2 2013 EPS outlook. The Company now expects an EPS of c.$0.10, compared to EPS from continuing operations of $0.21 in Q2 2012, primarily due to weaker than expected sales and margin results. The Company stated that total net revenue decreased approximately 2% YoY in Q2 2013. Robert Hanson, CEO of American Eagle, stated, "We are not at all happy with our second quarter results, which were impacted primarily by a disappointing performance of our AEO women's assortment and weak traffic. Results were exacerbated by a highly promotional retail environment, which intensified over the course of July. Within this context, we increased the depth and breadth of markdowns; these actions have enabled us to achieve a clean inventory position moving into the third quarter."
