Kohl's Corp. Key Developments
Kohl's Corporation Reports Sales Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year of 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015
Feb 4 16
Kohl's Corporation reported sales results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2015. For the quarter, the company reported comparable sales increased 0.4%. Total sales increased 0.8%.
For the full year, the company reported comparable sales increased 0.7%. Total sales increased 1.0%.
The Company now expects its fiscal 2015 diluted earnings per share to be $3.40 to $3.45. Excluding debt extinguishment losses recorded in prior quarters, fiscal 2015 diluted earnings per share is expected to be $3.95 to $4.00, down from its previously stated guidance of toward the low end of $4.40 to $4.60 per diluted share. The change in guidance is a result of lower than planned sales for the quarter and significantly lower than planned gross margin. Gross margin was affected by the origin and timing of the sales in addition to the competitive promotional environment which resulted in higher than expected markdowns on both year-round and seasonal merchandise.
