The Company operates retail outlets in high-traffic shopping malls, lifestyle centers and street locations across the United States. It also sells its products through its e-commerce website, Express targets women and men between 20 and 30 years of age.

  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On March 8, 2017, EXPR reported 4Q16 adjusted EPS of $0.29 vs. FBR/consensus of $0.30/$0.29 and guidance of $0.26–$0.30 (see previous note for details). 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)
