Brown Shoe beats forecasts

May 26, 2010

(Reuters) - Brown Shoe Co Inc's (BWS.N) first-quarter results beat Wall Street expectations, boosted by strong performance of its Famous Footwear and Naturalizer brands, and the footwear retailer raised its sales forecast for 2010.

"All of our segments generated improved gross margins and operating earnings in the quarter," Chief Executive Ron Fromm said in a statement.

The seller of shoe brands such as Naturalizer, LifeStride and Via Spiga, said it now expects 2010 sales to grow in the high-single to low double-digit range, up from an earlier view of growth in the mid-single digits.

Analysts on average are expecting 2010 sales of $2.38 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

For the quarter ended May 1, Brown Shoe swung to a net profit attributable to shareholders of $10.00 million, or 23 cents a share, compared with a loss of $7.6 million, or 18 cents a share, in the year-ago period.

Net sales at the St. Louis-based company known for its Famous Footwear stores rose 11 percent to $597.7 million. Comparable-store sales at the company's Famous Footwear stores were up 15.5 percent during the quarter.

Analysts were looking for earnings of 13 cents a share, on revenue of $582.9 million.

Brown Shoe also expects wholesale net sales to grow in the low to mid-teens range for the full year.

Shares of the company, which have nearly tripled in the last one year, closed at $17.20 Wednesday 26 May on the New York Stock Exchange.
