Estimated Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2005
Michael Balmuth, Vice Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, Our January sales results were well ahead of our expectation for a 3% to 4% increase in comparable store sales. Merchandise trends during the month were broadbased, with particular strength in our Juniors and Shoes departments, while the Southwest and the mid-Atlantic were the top performing regions. As a result, we now estimate that earnings per share for the 13 and 52 week periods ended January 28, 2006 will be about $.48 to $.49 and $1.35 to $1.36, respectively. The Company will report final results for the 13 and 52 weeks ended January 28, 2006 on Wednesday, March 15, 2006.
