Neiman Marcus Sees Q1 Sales Gain, Earnings Down

Share this content:
The Neiman Marcus Group Inc. said yesterday that comparable-store revenue increased 8 percent for the first quarter of fiscal year 2006, as revenue jumped from $908 million last year to $976 million. Also, operating earnings for the Dallas-based multichannel merchant in the 13 weeks ended Oct. 29 were $104 million compared with $110 million last year.


Revenue for the company's direct marketing operation was down slightly because of the November 2004 sale of Chef's Catalog: $139 million versus $140 million last year. On a comparable basis, excluding Chef's Catalog, revenue increased 10.4 percent. Also, operating earnings for Neiman Marcus Direct were $15 million in the first quarter, up from $11 million in the prior year, representing a 29 percent gain.


On Oct. 6, Neiman Marcus announced the completion of its acquisition by an investor group led by Texas Pacific Group and Warburg Pincus LLC.
