*Comparable sales adjusted for the impact of the 53rd week reflect a shift of the company's 2017 calendar to align with 2018 on a like-for-like basis.

Note: Adjusted metrics reflect the exclusion of certain items from the respective financial measures. Please see the final pages of this news release for important information regarding the nature of such excluded amounts and calculation of the company’s non-GAAP financial measures.

“Macy’s, Inc. delivered another quarter of comparable sales growth. That said, we had a slow start to the quarter and finished below our expectations. Rising inventory levels became a challenge based on a combination of factors: a fashion miss in our key women’s sportswear private brands, slow sell-through of warm weather apparel and the accelerated decline in international tourism. We took markdowns to clear the excess Spring inventory and are entering the Fall season with the right inventory to meet anticipated customer demand,” said Jeff Gennette, Macy’s, Inc. chairman & chief executive officer. “While we had seasonal inventory challenges in Spring, there are many areas of the business that are performing well, notably our Destination Businesses. We continue to see healthier sales within our brick and mortar business, led by our Growth50 stores and Backstage expansion. Our digital business posted its fortieth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, and mobile remained our fastest growing channel.”

“Our 2019 strategic initiatives are on track to contribute to sales growth in the back half of the year, and we have plans to drive productivity and improve gross margins,” Gennette added. “Our team has responded quickly to the external environment, course corrected when needed and we remain confident. Our 130,000 colleagues compete every day to win our customers’ business.”

Asset Sale Gains

Asset sale gains for the second quarter of 2019 totaled $7 million pre-tax, or $5 million after-tax and $0.01 per diluted share attributable to Macy’s, Inc. shareholders. This compares to the second quarter of 2018, when asset sale gains totaled $46 million pre-tax, or $34 million after-tax and $0.11 per diluted share attributable to Macy’s, Inc. shareholders.

Asset sale gains for the first half of 2019 totaled $49 million pre-tax, or $36 million after-tax and $0.11 per diluted share attributable to Macy’s, Inc. shareholders. This compares to the first half of 2018, when asset sale gains totaled $70 million pre-tax, or $53 million after-tax and $0.17 per diluted share attributable to Macy’s, Inc. shareholders.

Updated Guidance

Macy's, Inc. is reaffirming its previously provided annual sales guidance for 2019. Based primarily on its second quarter of 2019 performance, the company is lowering its guidance for Diluted EPS, excluding settlement charges, impairment and other costs, by 20 cents.

In light of the announcement by the United States Trade Representative on August 13, 2019, the company is evaluating the details of these tariffs and is actively working with its vendor partners and suppliers in China to help mitigate potential impact.

MACY’S, INC.
Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

Notes:

(1)

? As a result of the seasonal nature of the retail business, the results of operations for the 13 and 26 weeks ended August?3, 2019 and August?4, 2018 (which do not include the Christmas season) are not necessarily indicative of such results for the fiscal year.

?

?

(2)

? The results for the 13 and 26 weeks ended August?3, 2019 reflect the adoption of Accounting Standards Update 2016-02 (ASU 2016-02), Leases, on February 3, 2019, utilizing the modified retrospective approach which allowed for transition in the period of adoption.

?

?

(3)

? Gross margin is defined as net sales less cost of sales.

?

?

(4)

? Restricted cash of $73 million and $41 million have been included with cash and cash equivalents for the 26 weeks ended August 3, 2019 and August 4, 2018, respectively.? Further, reclassifications were made to certain prior period's amounts to conform with the classifications of such amounts in the most recent period.

MACY’S, INC.
Important Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users of the company's financial information with additional useful information in evaluating operating performance. Management believes that providing supplemental changes in comparable sales on an owned plus licensed basis and changes in comparable sales on an owned plus licensed basis adjusted for the 53rd week calendar shift, which include adjusting for growth in comparable sales of departments licensed to third parties, assists in evaluating the company's ability to generate sales growth, whether through owned businesses or departments licensed to third parties, and in evaluating the impact of changes in the manner in which certain departments are operated. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) is a non-GAAP financial measure which the company believes provides meaningful information about its operational efficiency by excluding the impact of changes in tax law and structure, debt levels and capital investment. In addition, management believes that excluding certain items from EBITDA, net income and diluted earnings per share attributable to Macy's, Inc. shareholders that are not associated with the company’s core operations and that may vary substantially in frequency and magnitude from period-to-period provides useful supplemental measures that assist in evaluating the company's ability to generate earnings and to more readily compare these metrics between past and future periods.

The reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure of changes in comparable sales on an owned plus licensed basis to GAAP comparable sales (i.e., on an owned basis) is in the same manner as illustrated below, except that the impact of growth in comparable sales of departments licensed to third parties is the only reconciling item. In addition, the company does not provide the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measure of diluted earnings per share attributable to Macy’s, Inc. shareholders excluding certain items because the timing and amount of excluded items are unreasonably difficult to fully and accurately estimate.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplementing, and not as an alternative or substitute for, the company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Certain of the items that may be excluded or included in non-GAAP financial measures may be significant items that could impact the company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows and should therefore be considered in assessing the company's actual and future financial condition and performance. Additionally, the amounts received by the company on account of sales of departments licensed to third parties are limited to commissions received on such sales. The methods used by the company to calculate its non-GAAP financial measures may differ significantly from methods used by other companies to compute similar measures. As a result, any non-GAAP financial measures presented herein may not be comparable to similar measures provided by other companies.

Notes:

(5)?

? Represents the period-to-period percentage change in net sales from stores in operation throughout the year presented and the immediately preceding year and all online sales, excluding commissions from departments licensed to third parties. Stores impacted by a natural disaster or undergoing significant expansion or shrinkage remain in the comparable sales calculation unless the store, or material portion of the store, is closed for a significant period of time. Definitions and calculations of comparable sales may differ among companies in the retail industry.

?

?

(6)?

? Represents the impact of including the sales of departments licensed to third parties occurring in stores in operation throughout the year presented and the immediately preceding year and all online sales in the calculation of comparable sales. The company licenses third parties to operate certain departments in its stores and online and receives commissions from these third parties based on a percentage of their net sales. In its financial statements prepared in conformity with GAAP, the company includes these commissions (rather than sales of the departments licensed to third parties) in its net sales. The company does not, however, include any amounts in respect of licensed department sales (or any commissions earned on such sales) in its comparable sales in accordance with GAAP (i.e., on an owned basis). The amounts of commissions earned on sales of departments licensed to third parties are not material to its net sales for the periods presented.

?

?

(7)

? Represents comparable sales on an owned plus licensed basis that incorporates a shift of the company's fiscal 2017 calendar to align with fiscal 2018 on a like-for-like basis as a result of the 53rd week in fiscal 2017.
