Gap Inc. Reports September Sales Results

The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS) today reported that net sales for the five-week period ended October 3, 2015 decreased 1 percent to $1.46 billion compared with net sales of $1.48 billion for the five-week period ended October 4, 2014.

On a constant currency basis, September 2015 net sales increased 2 percent compared with last year. In calculating the net sales change on a constant currency basis, current year foreign exchange rates are applied to both current year and prior year net sales. This is done to enhance the visibility of underlying sales trends, excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

"While September proved challenging, our leadership teams remain focused on taking the necessary steps to improve performance," said Sabrina Simmons, chief financial officer, Gap Inc.
