Finanzas: Target Reports Third Quarter 2016 Earnings

Noviembre 18, 2016

Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) today reported a third quarter 2016 comparable sales decline of 0.2 percent and GAAP earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of $1.06, an increase of 39.7 percent from third quarter 2015. Third quarter adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations2 (Adjusted EPS), which excludes the favorable resolution of income tax matters and certain items related to the pharmacy transaction, was $1.04, an increase of 22.1 percent from third quarter 2015.

“We are very pleased with our third quarter financial results, which reflect meaningful improvement in our traffic and sales trends and much stronger-than-expected profitability,” said Brian Cornell, chairman and CEO of Target. “Favorable gross margin mix and efficient execution by our team drove third quarter EPS performance well beyond our guidance. We also continued to gain market share in key Signature Categories and saw unexpectedly strong sales in the Back-to-School and Back-to-College season. As we move into the biggest quarter of the year, we are pleased with our inventory position and confident that our team will deliver a great guest experience as they bring our merchandising and marketing plans to life throughout the holiday season.”

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2016 Guidance
Target raised its expectations for fourth quarter comparable sales and now expects growth in the range of (1.0) percent to 1.0 percent, compared with prior guidance of (2.0) to flat. In the fourth quarter of 2016, Target expects both GAAP EPS from continuing operations and Adjusted EPS of $1.55 to $1.75.

For full-year 2016, Target now expects GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $4.67 to $4.87, compared with prior guidance of $4.36 to 4.76. The Company expects full-year 2016 Adjusted EPS of $5.10 to $5.30, compared with prior guidance of $4.80 to $5.20. The 43-cent difference between these ranges reflects early debt-retirement losses and a small benefit from the resolution of income tax matters.

Fourth quarter and full-year 2016 GAAP EPS from continuing operations may include the impact of unforeseen discrete items which may be excluded in calculating Adjusted EPS. The Company is not currently aware of any such discrete items beyond those already reported in the first, second and third quarters of 2016.
