In 2016, EXPR replaced its legacy IT systems with new order management, retail management, and enterprise planning systems. We would expect these to start to bear fruit toward 2H17/2018. EXPR has also made progress on its initiatives to correct issues that occurred last spring and expects to have deeper offerings. However, we believe traffic headwinds will continue, which is reflected in lower 1Q17 guidance." (3/15/2017)
