NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Restoration Hardware Holdings (RH) shares are rising in after-hours trading today after the home furnishings retailer reported its fourth quarter fiscal results after the closing bell Thursday.
The Corte Madera, CA-based company reported a 19 cent increase in its year over year quarterly EPS, earning $1.02 per share after earning 83 cents per share during the same period last year. Net revenues for the period increased 24% this year after increasing 18% last year to $582.7 million.
Analysts on average were expecting the company to report fourth quarter earnings of $1.01 per diluted share on revenue of $582.5 million.
"While we have been negatively impacted by the West Coast port disruption in the first quarter of this year, we believe at this point, most of the revenue and earnings not recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 should shift forward and have a positive effect on the second quarter," said CEO Gary Friedman.
