Wal-Mart said comparable sales at its U.S.
stores, its biggest unit, were relatively flat. Weather
adversely impacted same-store sales by about 20 basis points,
the company said.
Overall revenue rose marginally to $114.96 billion.
Net income attributable to Wal-Mart fell to $3.59 billion, or
$1.11 per share, in the first quarter ended April 30, from $3.78
billion, or $1.14 per share, a year earlier.
