The TJX Companies, Inc. Reports 28% Adjusted EPS Growth On $25.9 Billion In Sales In Fiscal 2013; Announces New $1.5 Billion Stock Repurchase Program; Plans 26% Increase In Dividend

Stocks in this article: TJX

Discontinuing Monthly Sales Reporting

The Company also announced today that beginning with the Fiscal 2014 second quarter, it will no longer report monthly sales, consistent with the retail industry trend. The Company will continue its current practices through the end of the Fiscal 2014 first quarter, reporting sales for February, March and April, and move to a quarterly reporting schedule thereafter. The Company believes that this is the right practice for TJX and its shareholders, reflecting the long-term approach it takes in planning and running its business as it continues on the path to becoming a $40 billion-plus company.

Impact of Foreign Currency Exchange Rates

Changes in foreign currency exchange rates affect the translation of sales and earnings of the Company’s international businesses into U.S. dollars for financial reporting purposes. In addition, ordinary-course, inventory-related hedging instruments are marked to market at the end of each quarter. Changes in currency exchange rates affect the magnitude of these translations and adjustments, and can have a material impact when there is significant volatility in currency exchange rates.
