FOOT LOCKER, INC. REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

Net Income of $0.69 Per Share, Up 60 Percent Compared to Last Year

Comparable-Store Sales Increased 10.2 Percent

SG&A Rate Improved 210 Basis Points

NEW YORK, NY, November 16, 2012 - Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE: FL), the New York-based specialty athletic retailer, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended October 27, 2012.

Third Quarter Results

Net income for the Company's third quarter ended October 27, 2012 was $106 million, or $0.69 per share, compared with net income last year of $66 million, or $0.43 per share. Third quarter sales increased 9.3 percent, to $1,524 million this year, compared with sales of $1,394 million for the corresponding prior-year period. Third quarter comparable-store sales increased 10.2 percent, which consisted of a 9.4 percent increase in store sales and an 18.3 percent increase in direct-to-customer sales. Excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations, total sales for the third quarter increased 11.0 percent.

Year-to-Date Results

Net income for the Company's first nine months of the year increased 48.7 percent to $293 million, or $1.90 per share, compared with net income of $197 million, or $1.27 per share, for the corresponding period last year. Year-to-date sales increased 8.4 percent, to $4,469 million, compared with sales of $4,121 million last year. Year-to-date comparable-store sales increased 9.9 percent. Excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations, total sales year-to-date increased 10.4 percent.

"Our team put together another outstanding quarter, delivering a double digit sales gain and controlling expenses to drive our bottom line earnings to new heights," said Ken C. Hicks, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The ongoing focus of all of our associates on the strategies and initiatives we updated at the beginning of the year continues to enhance the productivity of our key assets. Inventory turns are improving; sales per square foot are increasing; and by investing in our people and giving them the best tools to succeed with the customer, our associates are becoming even more productive, too."

Non-GAAP Adjustment

Included in the Company's third quarter and year-to-date results is a tax benefit of $9 million, or $0.06 per share. This benefit is the result of a settlement of a foreign tax audit, resulting in a reduction of tax reserves established in prior periods. On a non-GAAP basis, Foot Locker's third quarter earnings were $0.63 per share. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results for the third quarter of 2012 is provided in the table below.
