Citi Trends Announces Third Quarter 2011 Results

Citi Trends, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTRN) today reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

Financial Highlights – Third quarter ended October 29, 2011

Total sales in the third quarter ended October 29, 2011 increased 2.2% to $143.1 million compared with $140.0 million in the third quarter ended October 30, 2010. Comparable store sales decreased 9.3%.

Net loss was $6.8 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011, compared with a net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in last year’s third quarter. The increase in this year’s quarterly loss was primarily a result of the negative comparable store sales and a related need to take clearance markdowns. In addition, this year’s third quarter was affected by severance costs of $1.2 million, incurred primarily in connection with the elimination of 40 positions in the Company’s corporate offices, distribution centers and store organization, and $0.7 million of non-cash impairment expense related to the property and equipment at nine underperforming stores. The severance and impairment expenses had an adverse impact on loss per diluted share of $0.08 in the third quarter of 2011.

The Company opened 26 stores, relocated or expanded 4 others and closed 1 store in the third quarter of 2011, reaching a total store count of 507 at the end of the quarter.

Financial Highlights – First three quarters ended October 29, 2011

Total sales in the first three quarters of fiscal 2011 increased 2.7% to $462.5 million compared with $450.5 million in the same period of fiscal 2010. Comparable store sales decreased 9.1%. Net loss was $4.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, in the first three quarters of 2011, compared with net income of $11.5 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, in last year’s first three quarters. Year-to-date results include the aforementioned severance costs and impairment expense in the third quarter and $1.6 million of impairment expense and $0.6 million of costs incurred in connection with the closing of the Company’s Savannah, Georgia distribution center in the second quarter of 2011. Such expenses in the second and third quarters had an adverse impact on loss per diluted share of $0.17 in the first three quarters of 2011.
