Investing.com -- Shoe Carnival Inc (NASDAQ:SCVL) reported its first-quarter earnings on Wednesday, which saw profit surpass pre-pandemic levels. However, its shares plummeted 18% after it missed revenue expectations.

The footwear company posted revenue of $317.53 million, below analyst consensus expectations of $318.2 million. Net sales increased 25.1% compared to pre-pandemic levels but fell 3.3% compared to the prior-year quarter.

Meanwhile, earnings per share beat the consensus of $0.86 to reach $0.95. However, EPS fell well below the prior year's quarter of $1.51 per share.

"Our strategies to double our operating profit compared to the levels before the pandemic have worked," stated Mark Worden, President, and CEO.

Worden added, "Our first quarter results demonstrate the structural profit transformation and increased scale our plans have achieved compared to pre-pandemic results."

Shoe Carnival sees net sales climbing between 4% to 7% year over year in 2022. The company added that it plans to open ten new stores in 2022 with no store closures.
