Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected a net loss of 67 cents a share on revenue of $1.12 billion.
The company also announced it had entered into a lease of a new 530,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Reno, Nev., as well as the lease of a new customer care center in Pembroke Pines, Fla.
Net sales [revenue] remains the ultimate barometer of the company’s financial performance for investors, GameStop CEO Furlong said during an 8-minute conference call after the results were announced. The company did not take questions.
Wednesday’s results reflect more favorable debt and growth from a year ago, when the company reported a loss of $1.40 a share.
