Financial report summary

  • Our inability to successfully execute our customer strategy or evolve our business model could negatively impact our business and future profitability and growth.
  • Our business could suffer if we do not appropriately assess and react to competitive market forces and changes in customer behavior.
  • Our customer relationships and sales may be negatively impacted if we do not anticipate and respond to consumer preferences and fashion trends or manage inventory levels appropriately.

  • Owning and leasing real estate exposes us to possible liabilities and losses.

Management Discussion
  • In our ongoing effort to enhance the customer experience, we are focused on providing customers with a seamless experience across our businesses. We invested early in our omni-channel capabilities, integrating our operations, merchandising and technology across our stores and online, in both our Full-Price and Off-Price businesses. While our customers may engage with us through multiple businesses, we know they value the overall Nordstrom brand experience and view us simply as Nordstrom, which is ultimately how we view our company. We have one Retail reportable segment and analyze our results on a total company basis.
  • We measure our performance through customer, market share, operational and net sales metrics. As this is how we measure our performance, and as the change in comparable sales approximates the change in net sales in 2019, we only report changes in net sales.
  • In 2019, we adopted the SEC’s rule of FAST Act Modernization and Simplification of Regulation S-K. In accordance with this new standard, we limit our presentation and discussion below to the two most recent fiscal years. For our comparison and discussion of 2018 and 2017, see Item 7: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in Part II of our 2018 Annual Report, which we filed with the SEC on March 18, 2019.
