OMAHA, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Gordmans Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMAN), an Omaha-based apparel and home décor retailer, today announced results for its third quarter (thirteen weeks) and nine month period (thirty-nine weeks) ended October 27, 2012.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales increased 8.7% to $143.1 million compared to $131.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
  • Two new stores were opened in the Denver MSA.
  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.21, which exceeded revised guidance.

Nine Month Highlights

  • Net sales increased 10.6% to $405.2 million compared to $366.3 million for the nine months ended October 29, 2011.
  • Comparable store sales increased 1.1% over the first three quarters of fiscal 2011.

  • Net income increased 4.2% to $15.6 million compared to $15.0 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2011.

"Our total sales increase of 9% for the third quarter of 2012 was attributable to nine stores that we opened throughout the first nine months of the year, expanding our store base by 12%. We entered 4 new markets: Salt Lake City and Ogden, UT; Boise, ID; and Indianapolis, IN, as well as opened additional stores in Minneapolis and Denver," commented Jeff Gordman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While our third quarter comparable store sales were slightly lower than last year, we were encouraged by the mid-single digit increase in our average sale for this timeframe and the growth in our women's and children's apparel areas. Moreover, we have a number of new initiatives in place to drive our operating performance going forward."

Net sales for the thirteen weeks ended October 27, 2012 increased 8.7% to $143.1 million from $131.6 million for the same period last year, while comparable store sales fell by 1.4%.
