Gap reported third-quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday.
The retailer cut its forecast for full-year profits, amid a drop in comparable-store sales by 2% during the quarter.
Gap posted third-quarter adjusted earnings per share of $US0.63, in line with the consensus estimate among analysts according to Bloomberg. Net sales of $US3.86 billion also matched the forecast.
When Gap reported sales numbers earlier this month, it said weakness in the Canadian Dollar and the Japanese Yen were primarily to blame for a 3% decline in net sales.
“With a challenging third quarter behind us, we are sharply focused on holiday execution across all channels,” said CEO Art Peck in the earnings statement.
Shares fell by as much as 4% in after-hours trading.
