The Children's Place (PLCE) first-quarter fiscal 2022 results reflect a significant decline in net sales due to the lapping of the pandemic relief payments last year.
Shares of The Children's Place (NASDAQ: PLCE) were climbing today even after the company issued a disappointing first-quarter earnings report. Shares of the children's apparel retailer were up 12.2% as of 2:06 p.m. ET on Thursday. Like other discretionary retailers, The Children's Place was up against difficult comparisons with the quarter a year ago, when consumers received stimulus checks.
On the call today are Jane Elfers, president and chief executive officer; Rob Helm, chief financial officer; and Josh Truppo, vice president, financial planning and analysis. The Children's Place issued its first quarter 2022 earnings press release earlier this morning. Before we begin, I would like to remind participants that any forward-looking statements made today are subject to the safe harbor statements found in this morning's press release as well as in the company's SEC filings, including the risk factors section of the company's annual report on Form 10-K for its most recent fiscal year.
