Operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 increased by $57 million, or 133 percent, to $100 million compared to $43 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The improvement in operating income reflects sales growth of 12.6 percent and an approximately 210 basis point decline in operating expenses as a percent of net sales. Loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $131 million, which included a $40 million loss on extinguishment of debt. Loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $376 million, which included a $220 million loss on extinguishment of debt. Excluding the loss on extinguishment of debt in both periods, loss from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2013 improved $65 million as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

"The fiscal 2013 first quarter was yet a further continuation of our strong performance as we continue to benefit from growth in our businesses and strengthening market conditions," stated Joe DeAngelo, CEO of HD Supply.
