This action comes after the department store chain reported first quarter results earlier this month. The company reported revenue of $1.57 billion, or $2.66 per share, compared to revenue of $1.55 billion, or $2.56 per share for the same quarter a year ago.
While the company's revenue slightly increased from last year's, analysts at Thomson Reuters expected the retail giant to report revenue of $1.61 billion, or $2.78 per share for the first quarter.
"We are disappointed with our first quarter performance," said Dillard's CEO William Dillard, II. "Our 1% sales decline hampered our ability to leverage operating expenses and to drive net income growth."
Credit Suisse analysts said, "The primary issue for the company remains a lack of revenue growth. Comps and retail revenues declined for the second time in two years, and without revenue growth, maintaining operating margins will be challenging."
Additionally, the company called out the Texas market as underperforming the overall company, with the eastern region being the best performer.
