|Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On March 6, 2015, Foot Locker, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its operating results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2014. The press release includes a non-GAAP financial measure of fourth quarter and full-year 2014 net income excluding the after-tax integration and transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Runners Point Group, the write-down of a trademark and the impairment of certain other trademarks, and a gain on the sale of a property. The release also includes a non-GAAP financial measure of fourth quarter and full-year 2013 net income excluding the after-tax integration and transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Runners Point Group, costs associated with the closing of the CCS retail stores, and a tax benefit resulting from the conclusion of a foreign tax audit which enabled a reduction in tax reserves established in prior periods. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they allow for a more direct comparison of the Company’s performance for the fourth quarter and full-year 2014 to the Company’s performance in the comparable prior-year periods. The non-GAAP financial measures are provided in addition to, and not as an alternative to, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation to GAAP is provided in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations attached to the press release. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1, which, in its entirety, is incorporated herein by reference.
The Company is hosting a conference call on March 6, 2015 to discuss its fourth quarter and full-year 2014 financial results, provide its current outlook for 2015, comment on the status of its current initiatives, and discuss trends in its business and the athletic industry. A non-GAAP to GAAP reconciliation schedule for the non-GAAP measures referred to in the Company’s prepared conference call remarks is attached as Exhibit 99.2. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in evaluating the Company’s performance relative to its long-term financial objectives and allows for a more direct comparison of the Company’s performance for 2014 as compared with prior years.
