Kohl’s Raises Full-Year Guidance After Q2 Performance

The first half of fiscal 2021 for the department store retail chain Kohl’s — and especially the second quarter of the year that ended on July 31 — was enough for company leaders to raise their expectations for the full year.

After reporting on Thursday (Aug. 19) that total revenue was up more than 30 percent in the second quarter (from $3.4 billion to $4.4 billion) and up 43 percent for the first half of the year (from $5.8 billion to $8.3 billion), Kohl’s says its net sales are likely to grow in the low twenties percentage range for the year, compared to prior expectations in the mid to high teens. Net sales for Kohl’s increased 31 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

“Our performance in the second quarter marked another important step in further establishing Kohl’s as the leading destination for the active and casual lifestyle,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief executive officer, in the company announcement. “We delivered record second-quarter earnings, with sales and margins materially exceeding expectations.

“As pleased as we are with our ongoing strategic progress, much of our opportunity is still ahead of us. We are on the eve of launching several transformational partnerships that will drive sustainable growth for years to come,” she added.
