Kohl’s on Thursday said final bids to sell the business are expected in the coming weeks. The retailer also slashed its outlook for the year, with CEO Michelle Gass saying 2022 started out below her expectations.
“Sales considerably weakened in April as we encountered macro headwinds related to lapping last year’s stimulus and an inflationary consumer environment,” Gass said in a press release.
Here’s how Kohl’s did in the three-month period ended April 30 compared with what Wall Street was anticipating, according to a survey of analysts by Refinitiv:
- Adjusted earnings per share: 11 cents vs. 70 cents expected
- Revenue: $3.72 billion vs. $3.68 billion expected
