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. The Full Research Report on Genesco Inc. - including
