The TJX Companies, Inc. Sees Strong Momentum Continue; Reports Above-Plan Third Quarter EPS Growth; Raises Full-Year Guidance

The TJX Companies, Inc. and Consolidated SubsidiariesNotes to Consolidated Condensed Statements

  1. On January 5, 2012, TJX announced that its Board of Directors approved a two-for-one stock split of the Company’s common stock in the form of a stock dividend, payable February 2, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on January 17, 2012. The stock split resulted in the issuance of 372 million shares of common stock. All historical per share amounts and references to common stock activity, as well as basic and diluted share amounts, have been adjusted to reflect the two-for-one stock split.
  2. During the third quarter ended October 27, 2012, TJX repurchased 8.9 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $400 million. During the nine months ended October 27, 2012, TJX repurchased 22.5 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $950 million, with $225 million under the $1 billion stock repurchase plan approved in February 2011, completing the plan, and $725 million under the $2 billion stock repurchase program approved by the Board of Directors early in fiscal 2013. TJX records the repurchase of its stock on a cash basis, and the amounts reflected in the financial statements may vary from the above amounts due to the timing of settlement of repurchases.
  3. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, TJX’s Board of Directors approved the consolidation of its A.J. Wright division whereby 90 A.J. Wright stores were converted into T.J. Maxx, Marshalls or HomeGoods stores and the remaining 72 stores, its two distribution centers and home office were closed. The majority of the costs to consolidate A.J. Wright were recognized in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 but due to the timing of the store closings the additional closing costs (primarily lease related obligations) and additional operating losses were reported as a $49 million A.J. Wright segment loss in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. In addition, the first quarter of fiscal 2012 included costs related to the conversion of the 90 A.J. Wright stores to other banners (primarily store payroll and occupancy costs during the approximate eight to twelve-week period in which the stores were closed) and costs related to grand opening events when the stores re-opened. These costs totaled $20 million, with $17 million reflected in the Marmaxx segment and $3 million in the HomeGoods segment for the nine months ended October 29, 2011.
