Sales improvement at Shoe Carnival
Despite announcing a better sales trend for the quarter, the US-based footwear company has reported declining sales for the semester. Net income is also down
Cliff Sifford, Shoe Carnival’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented: “We are pleased with the quarterly improvement in our sales trend, particularly given this year’s later back-to-school dates in certain markets, which shifted sales from July into August. Our quarterly earnings were driven by the increase in sales along with our ability to efficiently manage our expenses. Looking ahead, we believe we are well positioned for back-to-school with a trend-right assortment of branded, family footwear, favorable inventory position, and our multi-channel initiatives which have already generated an August comparable store sales increase of 7.0%.”

Shoe Carnival reported net sales of 235.1 million US dollars for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, a 1.4% increase, compared to net sales of 231.9 million US dollars for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Comparable store sales increased by 0.4% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

Net earnings for the first six months of fiscal 2017 totaled 12.1 million US dollars, or 0.73 US dollars per diluted share, compared to net earnings of 14.8 million US dollars, or 0.78 US dollars per diluted share, in the first six months of fiscal 2016.
