Item 2.02.
Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On July 1, 2020, Macy’s, Inc. ("Macy’s") issued a press release announcing Macy’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows as of and for the 13 weeks ended May 2, 2020. The full text of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Macy’s reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The press release referred to above contains non-GAAP financial measures of earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share exclude impairment, restructuring and other costs. A section has been included at the end of the press release that contains important additional information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures including reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
Item 8.01.
Other Events
As previously announced, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, beginning April 1, 2020 the base salaries of each of our named executive officers (NEOs) were temporarily reduced by 20% and our Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the Board of Directors received no cash compensation.
The Compensation and Management Development (CMD) Committee and our Board of Directors have approved restoring base salaries for our NEOs, including our CEO, and reinstating our Board of Directors’ cash compensation. All actions are effective July 1, 2020.
The CMD Committee generally approves equity grants to management at its March meeting and our Board of Directors receive annual equity grants following the annual meeting of shareholders in May. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CMD Committee delayed approving equity grants to management. Equity grants to the Board of Directors were also delayed. The Company expects to make these equity grants in the next few weeks.
