Home Retail Group plc Reports Trading Results for the Fourth Quarter, Second Half and Full Year Ended February 28, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Home Retail Group plc reported trading results for the fourth quarter, second half and full year ended February 28, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total sales at Argos declined by 4.0% to £505 million in this short period.  Net new space contributed 1.0%, while like-for-like sales declined by 5.0%.  This trading performance was in part due to annualizing a 5% like-for-like sales growth in the same period last year, together with the impact of a more difficult market in a number of consumer electronic product categories.  Like-for-like sales at Homebase declined by 0.9% in this short period, principally due to annualizing a 9% like-for-like growth in the same period last year. Total sales declined by 4.7% to £193 million and net closed space reduced sales by 3.8%. For the second half of 2015, the company reported total sales at Argos declined by 0.3% to £2,327 million in second half. Net new space contributed 0.8%, while like-for-like sales declined by 1.1%. Total sales at homebase declined by 3.3% to £644 million in second half. Net new space contributed 3.4%, while like-for-like sales declined by 3.3%.  For the year, the company reported full-year total sales grew by 1.1%, like-for-like sales increased by 0.6% and net new space contributed 0.5%. The store estate has increased by 21 stores to 755 in the year, an increase that is in line with previously announced plans. This increase comprised a total of 30 new stores which included 20 Argos digital concessions within Homebase and seven new small format digital stores, partially offset by nine store closures. At home base full-year total sales declined by 0.7%, like-for-like sales increased by 2.3% and net closed space reduced sales by 3.0%. There were 30 store closures and three store openings in the year, reducing the store portfolio by 27 stores to 296, a reduction that is ahead of previous guidance for the current financial year and which is part of the previously announced productivity plan. The company expects that group benchmark profit before tax for the fiscal year 2015 financial year will be towards the top end of the current range of market expectations of £120 million to £132 million.
