Kohl's Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, said, “Sales for the fourth quarter developed very late and, as a result, came at a cost to profitability. We were, however, able to end the quarter with levels of inventory appropriate for a strong transition to Spring. Our associates across the company did an excellent job in managing expenses throughout the year."

Impact of 53rd Week

The retail calendar for fiscal January 2013 included a fifth week, resulting in a 14-week fiscal fourth quarter and a 53-week year. During this 53 rd week, total sales were $169 million; selling, general and administrative expenses were $30 million; interest was $2 million; net income was $15 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.06.


On February 27, 2013 Kohl's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on the Company's common stock of $0.35 per share, a nine percent increase over its previous dividend. The dividend is payable March 27, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 13, 2013.

Store Update

Kohl’s ended the quarter with 1,146 stores in 49 states, compared with 1,127 stores at the same time last year. During the year, the Company opened 21 new stores, including 1 relocated store, closed 1 store and completed 50 remodels.

Earnings Guidance

The Company issued its initial guidance for fiscal 2013. Based on assumptions of total and comparable store sales increases of 0 to 2 percent, the Company expects earnings per diluted share of $4.15 to $4.45 for the year. For the first fiscal quarter, the Company expects earnings per diluted share of $0.55 to $0.63 per diluted share based on assumptions of a total sales increase of 0.5 to 2.5 percent and a comparable store sales increase of 0 to 2 percent.
