Finish Line narrows Q4 loss


Finish Line (Nasdaq: FINL) said it had a much smaller fiscal fourth-quarter loss as a result of backing out of its proposed Genesco acquisition.

A year ago, the company pulled out of its proposed $1.5 billion bid for Genesco. The decision weighed heavily on year-ago results in the form of $81.4 million in costs related to a settlement.

For the quarter ended Feb. 28, its loss was $1.4 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to a loss of $39.2 million, or $0.83 per share, a year earlier. Excluding impairment charges and other items, income from continuing operations was $19.6 million, or $0.36 per share.

Fourth-quarter sales declined to $364.1 million, off 5 percent from $382.8 million in the prior-year period. The company said same-store sales fell 3.9 percent, with Man Alive tumbling 25 percent and its namesake stores down 2.3 percent.

For FY '08, Finish Line earned $3.8 million, or $0.07 per share, versus a loss of $60.8 million, or $1.29 per share. Adjusted income from continuing operations was $24.9 million, or $0.46 per share. Sales were down 2 percent to $1.26 billion from $1.28 billion. Same-store sales dropped 0.4 percent.
