PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urban Outfitters, Inc. (Nasdaq:URBN), a leading lifestyle specialty retail company operating under the Anthropologie, Free People, BHLDN, Terrain and Urban Outfitters brands, today announced record net sales for the two months ended December 31, 2011.

Total Company net sales for the two months increased to $577 million or 11% over the same period last year. Comparable retail segment net sales, which include our direct-to-consumer channels, increased 4% while comparable store net sales were flat. Comparable retail segment net sales increased 3% at Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie and 9% at Free People. Direct-to-consumer comparable net sales jumped 17% for the period with all brands posting double digit growth. Wholesale segment net sales were down 1%.

"We are pleased to announce an 11% increase in our holiday sales," said Glen T. Senk, Chief Executive Officer. "The highly promotional environment coupled with our goal to reduce our overall inventory levels by the end of the fourth quarter led to more promotional offerings than originally anticipated." continued Mr. Senk.

Comparable retail segment net sales were flat while comparable store net sales decreased 4%. Direct-to-consumer comparable net sales rose 15% for the period and wholesale segment net sales increased 11%.

During the 11 months ended December 31, 2011, the Company opened a total of 50 new stores including: 18 new Urban Outfitters stores, 13 new Anthropologie stores, and 18 new Free People stores and 1 BHLDN store. The Company will release fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012 sales results on February 9, 2012.
