Ascena Retail Group Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended April 25, 2015. For the quarter, the company's net sales were $1,150.3 million against $1,145.1 million a year ago. Operating income was $34.4 million against $53.7 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before provision for income taxes was $33.0 million against $51.3 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $24.4 million or $0.15 basic and diluted per share against $35.6 million or $0.22 basic and diluted per share a year ago. Net income was $24.4 million or $0.15 basic and diluted per share against $33.2 million or $0.20 basic and diluted per share a year ago. Total Adjusted EBITDA was $97.8 million against $115.0 million a year ago. Adjusted income before income taxes was $42.3 million against $65.7 million year ago. Adjusted net income was $30.1 million or $0.18 diluted per share against $44.8 million or $0.27 diluted per share a year ago. Adjusted operating income was $43.7 million against $68.1 million year ago. CapEx for the quarter was approximately $80 million, which includes investments in major e-commerce project and ongoing IT transformation. For the nine months, the company's net sales were $3,633.1 million against $3,608.2 million a year ago. Operating income was $117.1 million against $188.3 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before provision for income taxes was $112.5 million against $182.3 million a year ago.

Adjusted operating income was $141.3 million against $220.9 million year ago. EBITDA was $98 million or 8.5% of sales compared to last year's $115 million or 10% of sales. Excluding Justice, total Ascena EBITDA was up over 10%. The company reaffirms guidance for adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations in the range of $0.70 to $0.75 for the fiscal year ending July 2015. This guidance excludes any acquisition-related, integration and restructuring expenses and certain costs related to the scheduled closure of Brothers that may be incurred during the fiscal year. The company is now modeling flat to modest negative combined comparable sales performance for the year, and is projecting total capital expenditures between $325 million to $350 million as it continues to aggressively manage capital project activity. The company also expects that the margin rate will be significantly higher than what realized in fiscal 2015 and in line with the average from fiscal 2010 to 2012 before promotional activity began to escalate. The company continues to expect EBITDA growth for the full spring season. Excluding Justice, the company expects low to mid-positive single-digit combined comps, along with gross margin rate improvement at all brands. While the company expects the negative top line trend at Justice to persist, the lower level of planned promotional activity should deliver gross margin rate improvement.
