L Brands, Inc. (NYSE: LB) reported its financial results for the quarter ended May 2, 2020, on Wednesday after the market closes. Like other retailers, the company is not providing guidance for the second quarter or full-year 2020 given the high level of uncertainty in the current environment.

The results included non-cash impairment charges related to certain Victoria’s Secret store assets and a tax benefit related to the favorable resolution of certain tax matters.
