Earnings

Lowe’s on Tuesday reported quarterly earnings and revenue that beat analysts’ expectations.

Here’s what the company reported compared with what Wall Street was expecting, based on a survey of analysts by Refinitiv:

  • Earnings per share: $1.04 adjusted, vs. 98 cents expected
  • Revenue: $17.4 billion vs. $17.36 billion expected

CEO Marvin Ellison started at Lowe’s in July. Last quarter, the former J.C. Penney CEO outlined his plan to turn around the home improvement retailer, including to “aggressively rationalize store inventory.”

Lowe’s plans to end its Mexico retail operations and is exploring strategic alternatives for the business, the company announced Tuesday. It also plans to exit Alacrity Renovation Services and Iris Smart Home.

Lowe’s has already announced it will shutter its 99 Orchard Supply Hardware stores by year-end and close 20 Lowe’s stores in the U.S. and 31 in Canada. The retailer operates about 1,800 stores in the U.S. and about 300 in Canada.
