For fiscal year 2013, the company expects capital spending to be approximately $675 million in support of its outlined strategies.

Real Estate

The company ended fiscal year 2012 with 3,407 store locations in 47 countries, 3,095 of which are company-operated. Square footage of company-operated stores decreased 1 percent from the end of fiscal year 2011.

In fiscal year 2013, the company expects to open about 160 company-operated stores, focused on Athleta, Gap China, Old Navy Japan, and global outlet stores. The company expects that it will close about 80 company-operated stores. The closures are weighted towards Gap North America, consistent with the company’s previously stated strategy. Given its focus on growing through new channels and geographies, the company expects square footage to increase about 1 percent in fiscal year 2013.
