Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes contained in this report are unaudited but reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods of the fiscal year ending February 1, 2020 ("Fiscal 2020") and of the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019 ("Fiscal 2019"). The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of February 2, 2019 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date. These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto for Fiscal 2019, which are contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on April 3, 2019.

Nature of Operations
Genesco Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the "Company") business includes the sourcing and design, marketing and distribution of footwear and accessories through retail stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada primarily under the Journeys, Journeys Kidz, Little Burgundy and Johnston & Murphy banners and under the Schuh banner in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Germany; through catalogs and e-commerce websites including the following: journeys.com, journeyskidz.com, journeys.ca, schuh.co.uk, littleburgundyshoes.com, johnstonmurphy.com, johnstonmurphy.ca and trask.com, and at wholesale, primarily under the Company's Johnston & Murphy brand, the Trask brand, the licensed Dockers brand and other brands that the Company licenses for footwear. At May 4, 2019, the Company operated 1,504 retail stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Germany.

On February 2, 2019, the Company completed the sale of its Lids Sports Group business. As a result, the Company reported the operating results of this business in loss from discontinued operations, net of tax in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended May 5, 2018. In addition, the related assets and liabilities as of May 5, 2018 have been reported as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The cash flows related to discontinued operations have not been segregated, and are included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the three months ended May 5, 2018. Unless otherwise noted, discussion within these notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements relates to continuing operations. See Note 3 for additional information related to discontinued operations.
During the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, the Company operated four reportable business segments (not including corporate): (i) Journeys Group, comprised of the Journeys, Journeys Kidz and Little Burgundy retail footwear chains, e-commerce and catalog operations; (ii) Schuh Group, comprised of the Schuh retail footwear chain and e-commerce operations; (iii) Johnston & Murphy Group, comprised of Johnston & Murphy retail operations, e-commerce operations, catalog, Trask e-commerce operations and wholesale distribution of products under the Johnston & Murphy® and H.S. Trask® brands; and (iv) Licensed Brands, comprised of Dockers® Footwear, sourced and marketed under a license from Levi Strauss & Company; and other brands.

Principles of Consolidation
All subsidiaries are consolidated in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. All significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated.

Revenue Recognition
In accordance with ASC 606, revenue shall be recognized upon satisfaction of all contractual performance obligations and transfer of control to the customer. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for corresponding goods. The majority of the Company's sales are single performance obligation arrangements for retail sale transactions for which the transaction price is equivalent to the stated price of the product, net of any stated discounts applicable at a point in time. Each sales transaction results in an implicit contract with the customer to deliver a product at the point of sale. Revenue from retail sales is recognized at the point of sale, is net of estimated returns, and excludes sales and value added taxes. Revenue from catalog and internet sales is recognized at estimated time of delivery to the customer, is net of estimated returns, and excludes sales and value added taxes. Wholesale revenue is recorded net of estimated returns and allowances for markdowns, damages and miscellaneous claims when the related goods have been shipped and legal title has passed to the customer. Actual amounts of markdowns have not differed materially from estimates. Shipping and handling costs charged to
customers are included in net sales. The Company elected the practical expedient within ASC 606 related to taxes that are assessed by a governmental authority, which allows for the exclusion of sales and value added tax from transaction price.

A provision for estimated returns is provided through a reduction of sales and cost of goods sold in the period that the related sales are recorded. Estimated returns are based on historical returns and claims. Actual returns and claims in any future period may differ from historical experience. Revenue from gift cards is deferred and recognized upon the redemption of the cards. These cards have no expiration date. Income from unredeemed cards is recognized on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations within net sales in proportion to the pattern of rights exercised by the customer in future periods. The Company performs an evaluation of historical redemption patterns from the date of original issuance to estimate future period redemption activity.

The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets include an accrued liability for gift cards of $4.3 million, $5.1 million and $4.2 million at May 4, 2019, February 2, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively. Gift card breakage recognized as revenue was $0.2 million and $0.1 million for the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively. During the three months ended May 4, 2019, the Company recognized $1.6 million of gift card redemptions and gift card breakage revenue that were included in the gift card liability as of February 2, 2019.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company had total available cash and cash equivalents of $156.7 million, $167.4 million and $30.9 million as of May 4, 2019, February 2, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively, of which approximately $7.7 million, $20.8 million and $8.6 million was held by the Company's foreign subsidiaries as of May 4, 2019, February 2, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively. The Company's strategic plan does not require the repatriation of foreign cash in order to fund its operations in the

U.S., and it is the Company's current intention to indefinitely reinvest its foreign cash and cash equivalents outside of the U.S. If the Company were to repatriate foreign cash to the U.S., it would be required to accrue and pay U.S. taxes in accordance with applicable U.S. tax rules and regulations as a result of the repatriation.

There were $133.2 million and $127.2 million in cash equivalents at May 4, 2019 and February 2, 2019, respectively, and no cash equivalents included in cash and cash equivalents at May 5, 2018. Cash equivalents are primarily institutional money market funds. The Company's cash equivalents at May 4, 2019 and February 2, 2019 were invested in institutional money market funds which invest exclusively in highly rated, short-term securities that are issued, guaranteed or collateralized by the U.S. government or by U.S. government agencies and instrumentalities.

At May 4, 2019, substantially all of the Company’s domestic cash was invested in institutional money market funds. The majority of payments due from banks for domestic customer credit card transactions process within 24 - 48 hours and are accordingly classified as cash and cash equivalents in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

At May 4, 2019, February 2, 2019 and May 5, 2018, outstanding checks drawn on zero-balance accounts at certain domestic banks exceeded book cash balances at those banks by approximately $25.6 million, $29.6 million and $6.6 million, respectively. These amounts are included in accounts payable in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Concentration of Credit Risk and Allowances on Accounts Receivable
The Company’s footwear wholesale businesses sell primarily to department stores and independent retailers across the United States. Receivables arising from these sales are not collateralized. Customer credit risk is affected by conditions or occurrences within the economy and the retail industry as well as by customer specific factors. In the footwear wholesale businesses, one customer accounted for 19%, one customer accounted for 9%, one customer accounted for 8% and one customer accounted for 7% of the Company’s total trade receivables balance as of May 4, 2019.

Asset Retirement Obligations
The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets include asset retirement obligations related to leases of $11.0 million, $10.9 million and $10.9 million as of May 4, 2019, February 2, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively.

Debt fair values were estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis based on current market interest rates for similar types of financial instruments and would be classified in Level 2 as defined in Note 5.

Carrying amounts reported on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets for cash, cash equivalents, receivables and accounts payable approximate fair value due to the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Selling and Administrative Expenses
Selling and administrative expenses include all operating costs of the Company excluding (i) those related to the transportation of products from the supplier to the warehouse, (ii) for its retail operations, those related to the transportation of products from the warehouse to the store and from the warehouse to the customer and (iii) costs of its distribution facilities which are allocated to its retail operations. Wholesale costs of distribution are included in selling and administrative expenses
on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in the amount of $1.4 million and $1.5 million for the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively.

Buying, Merchandising and Occupancy Costs
The Company records buying, merchandising and occupancy costs in selling and administrative expense on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Because the Company does not include these costs in cost of sales, the Company’s gross margin may not be comparable to other retailers that include these costs in the calculation of gross margin. Retail occupancy costs recorded in selling and administrative expense were $83.2 million and $84.5 million for the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively.

Advertising Costs
Advertising costs are predominantly expensed as incurred. Advertising costs were $13.7 million and $14.5 million for the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, Continued

Cooperative Advertising
Cooperative advertising costs recognized in selling and administrative expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations were $0.7 million and $0.8 million for the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively. During the first three months of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, the Company’s cooperative advertising reimbursements paid did not exceed the fair value of the benefits received under those agreements.

Vendor Allowances
Vendor reimbursements of cooperative advertising costs recognized as a reduction of selling and administrative expenses were $1.9 million and $1.7 million for the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively. During the first three months of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, the Company’s cooperative advertising reimbursements received were not in excess of the costs incurred.

Foreign Currency Translation
The functional currency of the Company's foreign operations is the applicable local currency. The translation of the applicable foreign currency into U.S. dollars is performed for balance sheet accounts using current exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Income and expense accounts are translated at monthly average exchange rates. The unearned gains and losses resulting
from such translation are included as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive loss within shareholders' equity. Gains and losses from certain foreign currency transactions are
reported as an item of income and resulted in a net loss of $0.3 million for each of the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019.

Other Comprehensive Income
ASC 220 requires, among other things, the Company’s pension liability adjustment, postretirement liability adjustment and foreign currency translation adjustment to be included in other comprehensive income net of tax. Accumulated other comprehensive loss at May 4, 2019 consisted of $6.0 million of cumulative pension liability adjustments, net of tax, a cumulative post-retirement liability adjustment of $(1.7) million, net of tax, and a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment of $32.7 million.

Income Taxes
The Company recorded an effective income tax rate of 30.7% and 31.1% in the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively. The tax rate for the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 and 2019 each benefitted from the lower U.S. federal income tax rate following the passage of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act in December 2017, partially offset by the inability to recognize a tax benefit for certain foreign losses.

New Accounting Pronouncements
New Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted
The Company adopted ASU 2016-02, " Leases (Topic 842)", ("ASC 842"), as of February 3, 2019, using the optional transition method provided by ASU 2018-11, "Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements". The optional transition approach provides a method for recording existing leases at adoption by allowing a cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption, as opposed to the modified or full retrospective transition methods that require restating prior comparative periods. Additionally, the Company elected the “package of practical expedients”, which permits the Company not to reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs. The Company also elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components for its store and equipment leases.

Note 1
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, Continued

Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of additional net operating lease right of use assets and operating lease liabilities of approximately $795.6 million and $855.3 million, respectively, as of February 3, 2019. The operating lease right of use asset is inclusive of the impairments recorded upon adoption for store operating lease right of use assets, which totaled $4.8 million and resulted in a decrease to retained earnings of $4.2 million, net of tax. Right of use assets are recorded based upon the present value of remaining operating lease liabilities adjusted for deferred rent, including tenant allowances from landlords. The standard did not materially impact net earnings or liquidity. The standard did not have an impact on debt covenant compliance under the Company’s current debt agreements. Financial results for reporting periods beginning after February 3, 2019 are presented in accordance with ASC 842, while prior periods will continue to be reported in accordance with the Company’s historical accounting for leases under ASC Topic 840: "Leases (Topic 840)" and therefore have not been adjusted to conform to Topic 842. For additional information regarding leases, see Note 6.

New Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, "Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments", which requires entities to use a forward-looking approach based on expected losses to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments, including trade receivables. The FASB has subsequently issued updates to the standard to provide additional clarification on specific topics. This guidance will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of the year ending January 30, 2021 ("Fiscal 2021") with early adoption permitted. The Company is evaluating the impact that adopting this guidance will have on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-14, to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements for employers that sponsor defined benefit pension plans. ASU 2018-14 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of this update on its notes to its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15. The standard requires that issuers follow the internal-use software guidance in ASC 350-40 to determine which costs to capitalize as assets or expense as incurred. The ASC 350-40 guidance requires that certain costs incurred during the application development stage be capitalized and other costs incurred during the preliminary project and post-implementation stages be expensed as they are incurred. ASU 2018-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2018-15.

As required under ASC 350, the Company annually assesses its goodwill and indefinite lived trade names for impairment and on an interim basis if indicators of impairment are present. The Company’s annual assessment date of goodwill and indefinite lived trade names is the first day of the fourth quarter.

During the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2019, because the Schuh Group business has continued to perform below the Company's projected operating results, the Company performed impairment testing as of February 2, 2019. The Company found that the result of the impairment test, which valued the business at approximately $10.8 million in excess of its carrying value, indicated no impairment at that time. The Company may determine in connection with future impairment tests that some or all of the carrying value of the goodwill may be impaired. Such a finding would require a write-off of the amount of the carrying value that is impaired, which would reduce the Company's profitability in the period of the impairment charge. Holding all other assumptions constant as of the measurement date, the Company noted that an increase in the weighted average cost of capital of 100 basis points would reduce the fair value of the Schuh Group business by $11.4 million. Furthermore, the Company noted that a decrease in projected annual revenue growth by one percent would reduce the fair value of the Schuh Group business by $7.4 million. However, if other assumptions do not remain constant, the fair value of the Schuh Group business may decrease by a greater amount. There were no impairment indicators for the three months ended May 4, 2019.

Asset Impairments and Other Charges and Discontinued Operations

Asset Impairments and Other Charges

In accordance with Company policy, assets are determined to be impaired when the revised estimated future cash flows are insufficient to recover the carrying costs. Impairment charges represent the excess of the carrying value over the fair value of those assets.

Asset impairment charges are reflected as a reduction of the net carrying value of property and equipment in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and in asset impairments and other, net in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The Company recorded a pretax gain of $(0.7) million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2020, including a $(1.0) million gain for lease terminations, partially offset by a $0.3 million charge for retail store asset impairments.

The Company recorded pretax charges of $1.1 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2019, including $1.0 million for retail store asset impairments and $0.2 million for legal and other matters, partially offset by a gain of $(0.1) million related to Hurricane Maria.

Discontinued Operations

On December 14, 2018, the Company entered into a definitive agreement for the sale of Lids Sports Group to FanzzLids Holdings, LLC (the "Purchaser"), a holding company controlled and operated by affiliates of Ames Watson Capital, LLC. The sale was completed on February 2, 2019 for $93.8 million cash which consisted of a sale price of $100.0 million and working capital adjustments of $6.2 million. Because the effective date of closing was a Saturday and the cash proceeds were not received by the Company until February 4, 2019, the purchase price is reflected in accounts receivable at February 2, 2019.

As a result of the sale, the Company met the requirements of ASC 360 to report the results of Lids Sports Group as discontinued operations. The Company has presented operating results of Lids Sports Group in loss from discontinued operations, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended May 5, 2018. Certain corporate overhead costs and other allocated costs previously allocated to the Lids Sports Group business for segment reporting purposes did not qualify for classification within discontinued operations and have been reallocated to continuing operations whereas bank fees and certain legal fees related to the Lids Sports Group business segment previously excluded from segment earnings were reclassified to discontinued operations. The costs of the Lids Sports Group headquarters building, which was not included in the sale, was reclassified to corporate and other in segment earnings. The related assets and liabilities of Lids Sports Group are presented as current and non-current assets and liabilities of discontinued

operations in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of May 5, 2018. The Company will provide various transition services to the Purchaser for a period of up to six months under a separate agreement after the closing.

As part of the Lids Sports Group sale transaction, the Purchaser has agreed to indemnify and hold the Company harmless in connection with continuing obligations and any guarantees of the Company in place as of February 2, 2019 in respect of post-closing or assumed liabilities or obligations of the Lids Sports Group business. The Purchaser has agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to have any guarantees by, or continuing obligations of, the Company released. However, absent a release of the Company by the counterparty, the Company is contingently liable in the event of a breach by the Purchaser of any such obligation to a third-party. The foregoing guarantees of the Company include 68 of Lids Sports Group leases with lease expirations through October of 2027 and estimated maximum future payments totaling $27.8 million as of May 4, 2019. The Company does not believe the fair value of the guarantees is material to the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

The Purchaser has also agreed to assume the defense of and indemnify the Company in the Shumate v. Genesco Inc., et al., Ward v. Hat World, Inc., and Stewart vs. Hat World, Inc., et al. litigation matters previously disclosed in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019. In the event that the Purchaser fails to satisfy its defense and indemnification obligations, the Company could be liable for any of the liabilities or obligations ultimately determined to be due in connection with these matters.

Asset Impairments and Other Charges and Discontinued Operations, Continued

During the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2019, the Company recorded a loss on the sale of Lids Sports Group of $98.3 million, net of tax, on the sale of these assets, representing the sales price less the value of the Lids Sports Group assets sold and other miscellaneous charges, including divestiture transaction costs, offset by a tax benefit on the loss. Included in the loss on the sale is a $48.7 million write-off of trademarks. The tax benefit associated with discontinued operations differs from the effective rate due to the mix of earnings and loss in the various jurisdictions, the impact of permanent items and other factors.

Note 5
Fair Value

The Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the Codification defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with U.S. GAAP and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This topic defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. It also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 - Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

The following table presents the Company's assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis as of May 4, 2019 aggregated by the level in the fair value hierarchy within which those measurements fall (in thousands):

In accordance with the Property, Plant and Equipment Topic of the Codification, the Company recorded $0.3 million of impairment charges as a result of the fair value measurement of its long-lived assets held and used during the three months ended May 4, 2019. These charges are reflected in asset impairments and other, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The Company used a discounted cash flow model to estimate the fair value of these long-lived assets. Discount rate and growth rate assumptions are derived from current economic conditions, expectations of management and projected trends of current operating results. As a result, the
Company has determined that the majority of the inputs used to value its long-lived assets held and used are unobservable inputs that fall within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

Note 6
Leases

The Company leases its office space and all of its retail store locations, transportation equipment and other equipment under various noncancelable operating leases. The leases have varying terms and expire at various dates through 2034. The store leases in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada typically have initial terms of approximately 10 years. The store leases in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Germany typically have initial terms of between 10 and 15 years. The Company's lease portfolio includes leases with fixed base rental payments and rental payments based on a percentage of retail sales over contractual amounts.
Generally, most of the leases require the Company to pay taxes, insurance, maintenance costs and contingent rentals based on sales. The Company evaluates renewal options and break options at lease inception and on an ongoing basis, and includes renewal options and break options that it is reasonably certain to exercise in its expected lease terms for calculations of its right-of-use assets and liabilities. Approximately 2% of the Company’s leases contain renewal options. The Company's lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

Under ASC 842, for store and equipment leases beginning in Fiscal 2020 and later, the Company has elected to not separate fixed lease components and non-lease components. Accordingly, the Company includes fixed rental payments, common area maintenance costs, promotional advertising costs and other fixed costs in its measurement of lease liabilities for leases beginning in Fiscal 2020 and later.
The Company's leases do not provide an implicit rate, so the incremental borrowing rate, based on the information available at commencement or modification date, is used in determining the present value of lease payments. The incremental borrowing rate represents an estimate of the interest rate the Company would incur at lease commencement to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments on a collateralized basis over the term of a lease within a particular currency environment. For operating leases that commenced prior to the date of adoption of the new lease accounting guidance, the Company used the incremental borrowing rate that corresponded to the initial lease term as of the date of adoption.
Net lease costs are included within selling and administrative expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The table below presents the components of lease cost for operating leases for the three months ended May 4, 2019.

For leases that contain predetermined fixed escalations of the minimum rentals, the related rental expense is recognized on a straight-line basis and the cumulative expense recognized on the straight-line basis in excess of the cumulative payments is included in other long-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets for comparative periods. The Company occasionally receives reimbursements from landlords to be used towards construction of the store the Company intends to lease.

Leasehold improvements are recorded at their gross costs including items reimbursed by landlords. The reimbursements are recorded as deferred rent and amortized as a reduction of rent expense over the initial lease term. Tenant allowances of $22.5 million and deferred rent of $48.6 million at February 2, 2019 and tenant allowances of $23.5 million and deferred rent of $45.9 million at May 5, 2018 are included in other long-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Legal Proceedings and Other Matters

Environmental Matters
New York State Environmental Matters
In August 1997, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (“NYSDEC”) and the Company entered into a consent order whereby the Company assumed responsibility for conducting a remedial investigation and feasibility study and implementing an interim remedial measure with regard to the site of a knitting mill operated by a former subsidiary of the Company from 1965 to 1969. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), which assumed primary regulatory responsibility for the site from NYSDEC, issued a Record of Decision in September 2007. The Record of Decision specified a remedy of a combination of groundwater extraction and treatment and in-situ chemical oxidation.

In September 2015, the EPA adopted an amendment to the Record of Decision eliminating the separate ground-water extraction and treatment systems and the use of in-situ oxidation from the remedy adopted in the Record of Decision. The amendment provides for the continued operation and maintenance of the existing wellhead treatment systems on wells operated by the Village of Garden City, New York (the "Village"). It also requires the Company to perform certain ongoing monitoring, operation and maintenance activities and to reimburse EPA's future oversight cost, involving future costs to the Company estimated to be between $1.7 million and $2.0 million, and to reimburse EPA for approximately $1.25 million of interim oversight costs. On August 15, 2016, the Court entered a Consent Judgment implementing the remedy provided for by the amendment.

The Village additionally asserted that the Company is liable for the costs associated with enhanced treatment required by the impact of the groundwater plume from the site on two public water supply wells, including historical total costs ranging from approximately $1.8 million to in excess of $2.5 million, and future operation and maintenance costs which the Village estimated at $126,400 annually while the enhanced treatment continues. On December 14, 2007, the Village filed a complaint (the "Village Lawsuit") against the Company and the owner of the property under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”), the Safe Drinking Water Act, and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA”) as well as a number of state law theories in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, seeking an injunction requiring the defendants to remediate contamination from the site and to establish their liability for future costs that may be incurred in connection with it.

In June 2016 the Company and the Village reached an agreement providing for the Village to continue to operate and maintain the well head treatment systems in accordance with the Record of Decision and to release its claims against the Company asserted in the Village Lawsuit in exchange for a lump-sum payment of $10.0 million by the Company. On August 25, 2016, the Village Lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice. The cost of the settlement with the Village and the estimated costs associated with the Company's compliance with the Consent Judgment were covered by the Company's existing provision for the site. The settlement with the Village did not have, and the Company expects that the Consent Judgment will not have, a material effect on its financial condition or results of operations.

Note 9
Legal Proceedings and Other Matters, Continued

In April 2015, the Company received from the EPA a Notice of Potential Liability and Demand for Costs (the "Notice") pursuant to CERCLA regarding the site in Gloversville, New York of a former leather tannery operated by the Company and by other, unrelated parties. The Notice demanded payment of approximately $2.2 million of response costs claimed by EPA to have been incurred to conduct assessments and removal activities at the site. In February 2017, the Company and EPA entered into a settlement agreement resolving EPA's claim for past response costs in exchange for a payment by the Company of $1.5 million which was paid in May 2017. The Company's environmental insurance carrier has reimbursed the Company for 75% of the settlement amount, subject to a $500,000 self-insured retention. The Company does not expect any additional cost related to the matter.

Whitehall Environmental Matters
The Company has performed sampling and analysis of soil, sediments, surface water, groundwater and waste management areas at the Company's former Volunteer Leather Company facility in Whitehall, Michigan.

In October 2010, the Company and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment entered into a Consent Decree providing for implementation of a remedial Work Plan for the facility site designed to bring the site into compliance with applicable regulatory standards. The Work Plan's implementation is substantially complete and the Company expects, based on its present understanding of the condition of the site, that its future obligations with respect to the site will be limited to periodic monitoring and that future costs related to the site should not have a material effect on its financial condition or results of operations.

Accrual for Environmental Contingencies
Related to all outstanding environmental contingencies, the Company had accrued $1.8 million as of May 4, 2019, $1.8 million as of February 2, 2019 and $2.9 million as of May 5, 2018. All such provisions reflect the Company's estimates of the most likely cost (undiscounted, including both current and noncurrent portions) of resolving the contingencies, based on facts and circumstances as of the time they were made. There is no assurance that relevant facts and circumstances will not change, necessitating future changes to the provisions. Such contingent liabilities are included in the liability arising from provision for discontinued operations on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets because they relate to former facilities operated by the Company. The Company has made pretax accruals for certain of these contingencies, including approximately $0.1 million and $0.0 million in the first quarters of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively. These charges are included in loss from discontinued operations, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and represent changes in estimates.

Other Legal Matters
On May 19, 2017, two former employees of the Company's former Hat World subsidiary filed a putative class and collective action, Chen and Salas v. Genesco Inc., et al., in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging violations of the FLSA and certain Illinois and New York wages and hours laws, including, among others, failure to pay overtime to store managers, and also seeking back pay, damages, statutory penalties, and declaratory and injunctive relief. On March 8, 2018, the court granted the Company's motion to transfer venue to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District

Legal Proceedings and Other Matters, Continued

of Indiana. On March 9, 2018, a former employee of the Company's former Hat World subsidiary filed a putative class action in the Superior Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts claiming violations of the Massachusetts Overtime Law, M.G.L.C. 151§1A, by failing to pay overtime to employees classified as store managers, and seeking restitution, an incentive award, treble damages, interest, attorneys' fees and costs. The Company has reached an agreement in principle to settle the Chen and Salas and Massachusetts matters for payment of attorneys' fees and administrative costs totaling $0.4 million plus total payments to members of the plaintiff class who opt to participate in the settlement of up to $0.8 million. The proposed settlement is subject to approval by the court. The Company does not expect that the proposed settlement will have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations.

In addition to the matters specifically described in this Note, the Company is a party to other legal and regulatory proceedings and claims arising in the ordinary course of its business. While management does not believe that the Company's liability with respect to any of these other matters is likely to have
a material effect on its financial statements, legal proceedings are subject to inherent uncertainties and unfavorable rulings could have a material adverse impact on the Company's financial statements.

Other Matters
Subsequent to February 2, 2019, the IRS notified the Company on Letter 226-J, that the Company may be liable for an Employer Shared Responsibility Payment (“ESRP”) in the amount of $12.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. The ESRP is applicable to employers that had 50 or more full-time equivalent employees, did not offer minimum essential coverage (“MEC”) to at least 95% of full-time employees (and their dependents) or did offer MEC to at least 95% of full time-employees (and their dependents), which did not meet the affordable or minimum value criteria and had one or more employees who claimed the Employee Premium Tax Credit (“PTC”) pursuant to the Affordable Care Act (the “ACA”). The IRS determines which employers receive Letter 226-J and the amount of the proposed ESRP from information that the employers complete on their information returns (IRS Forms 1094-C and 1095-C) and from the income tax returns of their employees. Since the inception of the ACA, it has been the Company’s policy to offer MEC to all full-time employees and their dependents. Based on its analysis, the Company responded to the IRS on May 1, 2019 asserting that it did offer MEC to at least 95% of its full-time employees for each month of 2016 and noting that the discrepancy was caused by errors in the electronic files uploaded through the ACA information return system. Accordingly, the Company currently does not believe the ESRP set forth in Letter 226-J is a probable liability, and no accrual has been recorded at May 4, 2019.

Business Segment Information

During the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, the Company operated four reportable business segments (not including corporate): (i) Journeys Group, comprised of the Journeys, Journeys Kidz and Little Burgundy retail footwear chains, e-commerce and catalog operations; (ii) Schuh Group, comprised of the Schuh retail footwear chain and e-commerce operations; (iii) Johnston & Murphy Group, comprised of Johnston & Murphy retail operations, e-commerce operations, catalog, Trask e-commerce operations and wholesale distribution of products under the Johnston & Murphy® and H.S. Trask® brands; and (iv) Licensed Brands, comprised of Dockers® Footwear, sourced and marketed under a license from Levi Strauss & Company; and other brands.

The Company completed the sale of Lids Sports Group on February 2, 2019. As a result of the sale, the Company met the requirements to report the results of Lids Sports Group as a discontinued operation. Certain corporate overhead costs and other allocated costs previously allocated to the Lids Sports Group business for segment reporting purposes did not qualify for classification within discontinued operations and have been reallocated to continuing operations whereas bank fees and certain legal fees related to the Lids Sports Group business segment previously excluded from segment earnings were reclassified to discontinued operations. The costs of Lids Sports Group headquarters building, which was not included in the sale, was reclassified to corporate and other in segment earnings. As a result, the Company's segment information has been adjusted to exclude discontinued operations for the three months ended May 5, 2018.

The accounting policies of the segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies (see Note 1, under Item 8 in the Company's Annual Report on Form10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019).

The Company's reportable segments are based on management's organization of the segments in order to make operating decisions and assess performance along types of products sold. Journeys Group and Schuh Group sell primarily branded products from other companies while Johnston & Murphy Group and Licensed Brands sell primarily the Company's owned and licensed brands.

Corporate assets include cash, domestic prepaid rent expense, prepaid income taxes, pension asset, deferred income taxes, deferred note expense on revolver debt and corporate fixed assets, including the former Lids Sports Group headquarters building, and miscellaneous investments. The Company charges allocated retail costs of distribution to each segment. The Company does not allocate certain costs to each segment in order to make decisions and assess performance. These costs include corporate overhead, bank fees, interest expense, interest income, asset impairment charges and other, including major litigation and major lease terminations.

Risks related to the potential for terrorist events, especially in malls and shopping districts.
Changes in buying patterns by significant wholesale customers.
Bankruptcies or deterioration in the financial condition of significant wholesale customers or the inability of wholesale customers or consumers to obtain credit.

Overview
Description of Business
The Company’s business includes the sourcing and design, marketing and distribution of footwear and accessories through retail stores, including Journeys®, Journeys Kidz®, Little Burgundy® and Johnston & Murphy® in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada and through Schuh® stores in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Germany, and through e-commerce websites and catalogs, and at wholesale, primarily under the Company’s Johnston & Murphy® brand, the H.S. Trask® brand, the licensed Dockers® brand, and other brands that the Company licenses for footwear. The Company’s wholesale footwear brands are distributed to more than 1,250 retail accounts in the United States, including a number of leading department, discount, and specialty stores. At May 4, 2019, the Company operated 1,504 retail stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Germany.



35


On February 2, 2019, the Company completed the sale of its Lids Sports Group business. As a result, the Company reported the operating results of this business in loss from discontinued operations, net of tax in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended May 5, 2018. In addition, the related assets and liabilities as of May 5, 2018 have been reported as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The cash flows related to discontinued operations have not been segregated, and are included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the three months ended May 5, 2018. Unless otherwise noted, the discussion that follows relates to continuing operations.

During the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, the Company operated four reportable business segments (not including corporate): (i) Journeys Group, comprised of the Journeys, Journeys Kidz and Little Burgundy retail footwear chains, e-commerce and catalog operations; (ii) Schuh Group, comprised of the Schuh retail footwear chain and e-commerce operations; (iii) Johnston & Murphy Group, comprised of Johnston & Murphy retail operations, e-commerce operations, catalog, Trask e-commerce operations and wholesale distribution of products under the Johnston & Murphy® and H.S.Trask® brands; and (iv) Licensed Brands, comprised of Dockers® Footwear, sourced and marketed under a license from Levi Strauss & Company; and other brands.

The Journeys retail footwear stores sell footwear and accessories primarily for 13 to 22 year old teenagers and young adults. The stores average approximately 2,075 square feet. The Journeys Kidz retail footwear stores sell footwear primarily for younger children, ages five to 12. These stores average approximately 1,525 square feet. The Journeys Group stores are primarily in malls and factory outlet centers throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. Little Burgundy retail footwear stores sell footwear and accessories to fashion-oriented men and women in the 18 to 34 age group ranging from students to young professionals. These stores average approximately 1,825 square feet. With 40 Little Burgundy stores, Journeys Group operates 86 stores in Canada. Journeys also sells footwear and accessories through direct-to-consumer catalog and e-commerce websites journeys.com, journeyskidz.com, journeysca.com and littleburgundy.com.

The Schuh retail footwear stores sell a broad range of branded casual and athletic footwear along with a meaningful private label offering primarily for 16 to 24 year old teenagers and young adults. The stores, which average approximately 4,875 square feet, include both street-level and mall locations in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and Germany. The Schuh Group also sells footwear and accessories through the schuh.co.uk e-commerce website. On May 31, 2019, the Company announced plans to close its three stores in Germany.

Johnston & Murphy retail shops sell a broad range of men's footwear, apparel and accessories. Women's footwear and accessories are sold in select Johnston & Murphy retail locations. Johnston & Murphy shops average approximately 1,575 square feet and are located primarily in better malls and in airports throughout the United States. As of May 4, 2019, Johnston & Murphy operated eight stores in Canada. The Company also has license and distribution agreements for wholesale and retail sales of Johnston & Murphy products in various non - U.S. jurisdictions. The Company also sells Johnston & Murphy footwear and accessories in factory stores, averaging approximately 2,375 square feet, located in factory outlet malls, and through a direct-to-consumer catalog and the johnstonmurphy.com and johnstonmurphy.ca e-commerce websites. In addition, Johnston & Murphy shoes are distributed through the Company's wholesale operations to better department stores, independent specialty stores and e-commerce. Additionally, the Company offers the H.S. Trask brand, with men's and women's footwear and leather accessories distributed to better independent retailers and department stores and through the trask.com e-commerce website.


36


The Licensed Brands segment markets casual and dress casual footwear under the licensed Dockers® brand to men aged 30 to 55 through many of the same national retail chains that carry Dockers pants and sportswear and in department and specialty stores across the United States. The Company entered into an exclusive license with Levi Strauss & Co. to market men's footwear in the United States under the Dockers brand name in 1991. Levi Strauss & Co. and the Company have subsequently added additional territories, including Canada and Mexico and certain other Latin American countries. The Dockers license agreement expires on November 30, 2019. The Company also sells footwear under other licenses.

Strategy
The Company’s long-term strategy is to pursue growth through a footwear-focused strategy. Our strong strategic positioning, close connection with our customers and enduring leadership positions are what make each of our footwear businesses distinctive on their own and what they share as sources of synergy makes them stronger together. This growth opportunity is both organic and through acquisitions. Organic growth includes: 1) improving comparable sales, both in stores and e-commerce, 2) increasing operating margin not only through comparable sales growth, but also through targeted cost reduction and additional sharing of synergies among our divisions, 3) increasing the Company's store base in its newer concepts and opportunistically, in more mature concepts and 4) enhancing the value of its brands. The Company anticipates opening fewer new stores in the future, concentrating on locations that the Company believes will be most productive, as well as closing certain stores, perhaps reducing the overall square footage and store count from current levels, but improving productivity in its existing locations and investing in technology and infrastructure to support omnichannel retailing.
To supplement its organic growth potential, the Company has made acquisitions, including the acquisitions of the Schuh Group in June 2011 and Little Burgundy in December 2015, and may pursue acquisition opportunities in the future. The Company anticipates that potential acquisitions would either augment existing businesses or facilitate the Company's entry into new businesses that are compatible with its existing footwear businesses and core expertise.
More generally, the Company attempts to develop strategies to mitigate the risks it views as material, including those discussed under the caption “Forward Looking Statements,” above, and those discussed in Item 1A, "Risk Factors" in this 10-Q and in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019. Among the most important of these factors are those related to consumer demand. Conditions in the economy can affect demand, resulting in changes in sales and, as prices are adjusted to drive sales and manage inventories, in gross margins. Because fashion trends influencing many of the Company’s target customers can change rapidly, the Company believes that its ability to react quickly to those changes has been important to its success. Even when the Company succeeds in aligning its merchandise offerings with consumer preferences, those preferences may affect results by, for example, driving sales of products with lower average selling prices or products which are more widely available in the marketplace and thus more subject to competitive pressures than the Company's typical offering. Moreover, economic factors, such as rising unemployment and any future economic contraction and changes in tax policies, may reduce the consumer’s disposable income or his or her willingness to purchase discretionary items, and thus may reduce demand for the Company’s merchandise, regardless of the Company’s skill in detecting and responding to fashion trends. The Company believes its experience and discipline in merchandising and the buying power associated with its relative size and importance in the industry segments in which it competes are important to its ability to mitigate risks associated with changing customer preferences and other changes in consumer demand.

Summary of Results of Operations
The Company's net sales increased 1.9% to $496 million during the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 compared to $486 million for the same quarter of Fiscal 2019. Excluding the effect of lower exchange rates, net sales would have increased 3%. Comparable sales increased 5% for the first quarter. Journeys Group sales increased 6%, while Schuh Group sales decreased 4%, Johnston & Murphy Group sales decreased 1% and Licensed Brand sales decreased 17% during the first quarter of Fiscal 2020. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales increased to 49.4% during the first quarter of Fiscal 2020, compared to 49.0% for the same period last year, reflecting increased gross margin in Journeys Group, Johnston & Murphy Group and Licensed Brands, partially offset by decreased margins in Schuh Group. Selling and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased to 47.7% of net sales during the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 from 48.0% for the same quarter of Fiscal 2019, reflecting decreased expenses as a percentage of net sales in Journeys Group, Schuh Group and Johnston & Murphy Group, partially offset by increased expenses in Licensed Brands and Corporate. Operating income increased as a percentage of net sales to 1.8% during the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 compared to 0.8% in the same quarter of Fiscal 2019, reflecting increased operating income as a percentage of net sales in all of the Company's business units, except Schuh Group.

Significant Developments

The Sale of Lids Sports Group
The Company announced in February of 2018 that it was initiating a formal process to explore the sale of its Lids Sports Group business.  On December 14, 2018, the Company entered into a definitive agreement for the sale of Lids Sports Group to FanzzLids Holdings, LLC, a holding company controlled and operated by affiliates of Ames Watson Capital, LLC. The sale was completed on February 2, 2019 for $93.8 million cash which consisted of a sale price of $100.0 million and working capital adjustments of $6.2 million. Because the effective date of closing was a Saturday and the cash proceeds were not received by the Company until February 4, 2019, the purchase price is reflected in accounts receivable at February 2, 2019. The Company recorded a loss on the sale of Lids Sports Group of $98.3 million, net of tax, on the sale of these assets, representing the sales price less the value of the Lids Sports Group assets sold and other miscellaneous charges, including divestiture transaction costs, offset by a tax benefit on the loss. As a result of the sale, the Company met the requirements of ASC 360 to report the results of Lids Sports Group as discontinued operations, and reflected the loss in loss from discontinued operations, net on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for Fiscal 2019. Unless otherwise noted, the discussion herein relates to continuing operations. See additional information regarding the sale of Lids Sports Group in Item 1, Note 3, "Asset Impairments and Other Charges and Discontinued Operations".

Asset Impairment and Other Charges
The Company recorded a pretax gain of $(0.7) million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2020, including a $(1.0) million gain for lease terminations, partially offset by a $0.3 million charge for retail store asset impairments.

The Company recorded pretax charges of $1.1 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2019, including $1.0 million for retail store asset impairments and $0.2 million for legal and other matters, partially offset by a gain of $(0.1) million related to Hurricane Maria.







38


Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

The Company has identified the critical accounting policies used in determining estimates and assumptions in the amounts reported in Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019. Management believes that there have been no material changes in those critical accounting policies.

Comparable Sales
For purposes of this report, "comparable sales" are sales from stores open longer than one year, beginning with the first day it has comparable sales (which we refer to in this report as "same store sales"), and sales from websites operated longer than one year and direct mail catalog sales (which we refer to in this report as "comparable direct sales"). Temporarily closed stores are excluded from the comparable sales calculation if closed for more than seven days. Expanded stores are excluded from the comparable sales calculation until the first day it has comparable prior year sales. Current year foreign exchange rates are applied to both current year and prior year comparable sales to achieve a consistent basis for comparison.

Results of Operations - First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Compared to First Quarter Fiscal 2019

The Company's net sales in the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 increased 1.9% to $495.7 million from $486.2 million in the first quarter ended May 5, 2018, reflecting increased net sales in Journeys Group, partially offset by decreased sales in Schuh Group, Johnston & Murphy Group and Licensed Brands. Excluding the effect of lower exchange rates, net sales would have increased 3%. Comparable sales increased 5% increase for the first quarter of Fiscal 2020, which included an increase of 4% in same store sales and an increase of 15% in comparable direct sales. Gross margin increased 2.9% to $244.9 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 from $238.0 million in the same period last year, and increased as a percentage of net sales from 49.0% to 49.4%, reflecting increased gross margin in Journeys Group, Johnston & Murphy Group and Licensed Brands, partially offset by decreased margin in Schuh Group. Selling and administrative expenses in the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 increased 1.4% due to increased bonus expense, but decreased as a percentage of net sales from 48.0% to 47.7%, reflecting decreased expenses as a percentage of net sales in all of the Company's business units except Licensed Brands and Corporate. The Company records buying and merchandising and occupancy costs in selling and administrative expense. Because the Company does not include these costs in cost of sales, the Company's gross margin may not be comparable to other retailers that include these costs in the calculation of gross margin. Explanations of the changes in results of operations are provided by business segment in discussions following these introductory paragraphs.

Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes (“pretax earnings”) for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 were $9.3 million compared to $2.7 million for the first quarter ended May 5, 2018. Pretax earnings for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 included an asset impairment and other gain of ($0.7) million for a gain on lease terminations, partially offset by a charge for retail store asset impairments. Pretax earnings for the first quarter ended May 5, 2018 included an asset impairment and other charge of $1.1 million for retail store asset impairments and legal and other matters, partially offset by a gain related to Hurricane Maria.

39


Net earnings for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 were $6.3 million ($0.36 diluted earnings per share) compared to a net loss of ($2.3) million ($0.12 diluted loss per share) for the first quarter ended May 5, 2018. The Company recorded an effective income tax rate of 30.7% and 31.1% in the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively. The tax rate for the first quarter of Fiscal 2020 and 2019 each benefitted from the lower U.S. federal income tax rate following the passage of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act in December 2017, partially offset by the inability to recognize a tax benefit for certain foreign losses.

Net sales from Journeys Group increased 5.8% to $324.0 million for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019, compared to $306.1 million for the same period last year. The increase reflects a 7% increase in comparable sales, partially offset by a 2% decrease in the average number of Journeys Group stores operated (i.e. the sum of the number of stores open on the first day of the fiscal quarter and the last day of each fiscal month during the quarter divided by four). The comparable sales increase reflected an 8% increase in footwear unit sales, while the average price per pair of shoes decreased 1%. Journeys Group operated 1,188 stores at the end of the first quarter of Fiscal 2020, including 239 Journeys Kidz stores, 46 Journeys stores in Canada and 40 Little Burgundy stores in Canada, compared to 1,221 stores at the end of the first quarter last year, including 245 Journeys Kidz stores, 46 Journeys stores in Canada and 39 Little Burgundy stores in Canada.

Journeys Group operating income increased 46.1% to $19.0 million for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 compared to $13.0 million for the first quarter ended May 5, 2018. The increase in operating income for Journeys Group was due to (i) increased net sales, (ii) increased gross margin as a percentage of net sales, reflecting decreased markdowns and (iii) decreased expenses as a percentage of net sales, reflecting leverage of occupancy related costs and selling salaries, partially offset by increased bonus expense.
