Claire's Stores Inc. reported consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended May 2, 2015. For the period, the company reported net sales of $320.0 million, a decrease of $33.3 million, or 9.4% compared to net sales of $353.343 million a year ago. The decrease was attributable to an unfavorable foreign currency translation effect of the company's non-U.S. net sales, the effect of store closures and a decrease in same store sales, partially offset by new store sales. Net sales would have decreased 2.8% excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate changes. Adjusted EBITDA was $37.6 million compared to $48.1 million last year. Operating income was $19.024 million against $16.755 million a year ago. Loss before income tax expense was $35.396 million against $38.004 million a year ago.
