RAPAPORT... Signet Jewelers' same-store sales increased 4.9 percent in the fourth quarter that ended January 30, according to preliminary results released February 29.

The improvement is within the diamond jewelry retailer’s guidance of 4.6 to 5 percent same-stores sales growth and comes alongside an increased in adjusted earnings per share of 19 percent to $3.63, the company said in a statement.

Having now operated Zales, acquired in 2014, for a full fiscal year, Signet’s management has identified a “significant number of incremental synergy opportunities." The company increased its expectations for total savings as a result of the acquisition to $225 million to $250 million by the end of fiscal year 2018 from an earlier estimate of $150 million to $175 million.

The company enjoyed a “faster pace of synergy realization than previously guided,” Mark Light, Signet’s chief executive officer, added in the statement.

The results come on the back of similar sales-growth rates announced by Signet for the holiday season comprising the eight weeks to December 26.
