Kohl’s Corporation (NYSE: KSS) reported a 17% decrease in earnings for the second quarter as lower comparable sales hurt the top line. However, the results exceeded analysts’ expectations.

Net income dropped by 17% to $241 million or $1.51 per share. Adjusted earnings decreased by 12% to $1.55 per share.

Revenue declined by 3.1% to $4.43 billion as comparable sales fell 2.9% year-over-year. Comparable sales were better than the first quarter and improved during the period, turning positive during the last six weeks of the second quarter with 1% growth. This positive trend has continued into August driven by a successful start to the back-to-school season.
