  • 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)
  • 3. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "lighter-than-expected earnings." The increased spend on promotional activity also hurt Express' results.BMO said, "Despite the company's efforts to curtail its over-assortment issue and positive cost-saving initiatives (incremental $40 million over the next two years), we maintain our Market Perform rating until we see the green shoots of repatriating its core 20–30-year-old target customer."Related Link: Express Is Now A "Show-Me" (8/25/2016)
