Staples cuts outlook as results miss expectations

May 18, 2011 by SteveT   Comments (0)

LONDON (MarketWatch) — Office-supplies retailer Staples Inc. reported weaker-than-expected quarterly results Wednesday and cut its profit outlook for the year. The group said fiscal first-quarter net profit rose 5% to 8.2 million, or 28 cents a share, from 8.8 million, or 26 cents a share, a year earlier. Revenue for the quarter ended April 30 rose 1.9% to .17 billion. Analysts polled by FactSet Research had been expecting earnings of 32 cents a share on sales of .2 billion. Chairman and Chief Executive Ron Sargent said Staples is making good progress on its growth initiatives, but that this was coming “at a cost to our bottom line” as the company invested in order to gain market share in North America. For 2011 the group now expects earnings to be in a range of .35 to .45 a share, down from its previous forecast of .50 to .60 a share. Analysts had, on average, been forecasting earnings of .53 a share for the year.
