Kohl’s expectations for the balance of 2022

The followings have been added to the Company's full-year financial projection for 2022:

1.- In comparison to the previous year, net sales are now predicted to be in the range of 0% to 1%.

3.- Excluding non-recurring costs, earnings per share is now estimated to range from $6.45 to $6.85.

Commenting on the quarterly results, CEO Michelle Gass said in the earnings press release:

“The year has started out below our expectations. Following a strong start to the quarter with positive low-single digits comps through late March, sales considerably weakened in April as we encountered macro headwinds related to lapping last year’s stimulus and an inflationary consumer environment.”

The $5.79 billion company that trades at a PE multiple of 7.11 is down more than 25% from its year-to-date high.
