Columbus, Ohio — Express said its fourth-quarter net income rose a better-than-expected 6%, but its full-year projection for earnings came up short as the retailer provided a weak outlook.

For the period ended Feb. 2, Express Inc. earned $63.9 million, up from $60.4 million a year earlier.
Revenue increased 8% to $728.7 million from $673.2 million. Same-store sales rose 1.5%.
