Macy’s, Inc. Reports Its Fifth Consecutive Year Of Double-Digit Growth In Earnings Per Share

Macy’s, Inc. (NYSE:M) today reported continued sales and earnings growth in the fourth quarter and full year 2013, ended Feb. 1, 2014. In its guidance for 2014, the company expects continued improvement in sales and earnings in the coming year from its core business strategies – My Macy’s localization, Omnichannel integration and Magic Selling – which are known by the acronym of M.O.M.

Fourth quarter 2013 earnings were $2.16 per diluted share, or $2.31 excluding items described below. This represents an increase of 18 percent, or 13 percent excluding items described below, over the comparable period a year ago. Comparable sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 grew by 1.4 percent, and by 2.3 percent for comparable sales combined with comparable sales from departments licensed to third parties.

For the full year 2013, earnings were $3.86 per diluted share, or $4.00 excluding items described below. This represents an increase of 19 percent, or 16 percent excluding items described below, over fiscal 2012. The $4.00 per share exceeds management’s initial guidance provided at the beginning of the year for earnings per share, excluding items described below, to be in the range of $3.90 to $3.95 per share in fiscal 2013. Comparable sales for fiscal 2013 grew by 1.9 percent, and by 2.8 percent for comparable sales combined with comparable sales from departments licensed to third parties.

“Macy’s, Inc. had a strong year in 2013, and we are proud of the continued improvement in our ability to serve evolving customer needs at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. This was our fifth consecutive year of double-digit growth in earnings per share and our fourth consecutive year of comparable sales growth. In fact, our total sales have grown by more than $4.4 billion in the past four years,” said Terry J. Lundgren, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc. “Having generated this sustained level of momentum, we continue to drive for further growth through progressively deeper implementation of the M.O.M. strategies that have set Macy’s, Inc. apart from other retailers.
