Business Segment Results

Carter’s Segments

Carter’s retail segment sales increased $32.8 million, or 17.8%, to $217.3 million. The increase was driven by incremental sales of $18.7 million from new store openings and $12.1 million from eCommerce sales, and a comparable store sales increase of $4.3 million, or 2.7%. This growth was partially offset by a sales decrease of $2.4 million attributed to store closings. In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company opened 15 Carter’s retail stores and closed two. As of the end of the third quarter, the Company operated 398 Carter’s retail stores in the United States.

Carter’s wholesale segment sales fell $13.2 million, or 4.6%, to $275.6 million principally driven by lower off-price channel sales in the current year.

OshKosh B’gosh Segments

OshKosh retail segment sales decreased $2.4 million, or 3.0%, to $78.1 million. The decrease reflects a sales decline of $3.2 million attributed to store closings and a comparable store sales decline of $3.1 million, or 4.3%. The decreases were partially offset by incremental sales of $3.0 million from eCommerce and $0.9 million from new store openings. In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company opened two OshKosh retail stores and closed one. As of the end of the third quarter, the Company operated 167 OshKosh retail stores in the United States.
