Earnings Update by AlphaStreet

— Revenue declined by 4% to $1.22 billion versus $1.45 billion expected. This primarily reflects a comparable sales decrease of 2% for the quarter, a decline in other revenue and a decrease in non-comparable sales.

— During the quarter, Ascena incurred non-cash impairment charges of goodwill and other intangible assets. This offset in part by the benefit of cost reductions.

— At the end of the second quarter, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $374 million while the total debt stood at $1.29 billion, which represents the balance remaining on the term loan.

— Gross margin is predicted to be in the range of 57.8-58.3% and adjusted operating loss is projected to be in the range of $30-10 million for the third quarter.
