ITEM 2.02. RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION
On March 2, 2012, Genesco Inc. issued a press release announcing results of operations for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 28, 2012. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
On March 2, 2012, Genesco Inc. also posted on its website, www.genesco.com, commentary by its chief financial officer on the quarterly and annual results. A copy of the commentary is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the press release and commentary furnished herewith contain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted selling, general and administrative expense, operating earnings, pretax earnings, earnings from continuing operations and earnings per share from continuing operations, as discussed in the text of the release and commentary and as detailed on the reconciliation schedule attached to the press release and commentary. For consistency and ease of comparison with Fiscal 2012s previously announced earnings expectations and the adjusted results for the prior period announced last year, neither of which reflected the adjustments, the Company believes that disclosure of the non-GAAP expense and earnings measures will be useful to investors.
