company's shares were down 15.5 percent to $42.40 in premarket
trading on Thursday.
Kohl's said it expects 2015 earnings to be $3.95-$4.00 per
share, excluding losses from debt repayment. Kohl's had earlier
expected earnings to be at the low end of $4.40-$4.60 per share.
The company said sales were lower than it had anticipated in the
fourth quarter and were "very volatile", due to a slow start in
November and weak demand for winter products in January.
Kohl's is scheduled to report fourth-quarter results on Feb. 25.
