What's Going On With Gap Shares After Hours?

Gap Inc GPS shares are trading higher in Thursday's after-hours session. The company reported top-line results that beat analyst expectations.

Gap said fiscal second-quarter revenue decreased 8% year-over-year to $3.86 billion, which beat average analyst estimates of $3.82 billion, according to Benzinga Pro. Comparable sales were down 10% year-over-year.

Gap reported second-quarter earnings of 8 cents per share, which is down from earnings of 70 cents per share year-over-year. 

"We are taking actions to better optimize profitability and cash flow in the near term, reducing operating costs as well as impairing unproductive inventory," said Bob Martin, executive chairman and interim CEO of Gap.

As a result of the actions Gap is taking to reduce inventory and rebalance assortments, combined with the uncertain macro-environment, the company said it's withdrawing its prior fiscal 2022 outlook.
