Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. today reported record sales and earnings for the fourth quarter ended Jan. 31, 2007, as well as for the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2007, with net sales at U.S. $344.992 billion, an increase of 11.7 percent over fiscal year 2006. Income from continuing operations for the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2007, increased 6.7 percent to $12.178 billion, up from $11.408 billion in the prior year. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2007, were $2.92, up from $2.72 in the prior year.

Net sales for the fourth quarter were $98.090 billion, an increase of 10.9 percent over the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2006. Income from continuing operations for the quarter was $3.940 billion, an increase of 8.8 percent from $3.621 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2006.
   
Earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.95, up from $0.87 per share in the same prior year quarter. Fourth quarter earnings in fiscal 2007 were favorably impacted by a $98 million net tax benefit recorded in the Company's tax provision. This $0.02 per share net benefit arose primarily from the resolution of certain tax matters related to transfer pricing and the renewal of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit.
