Chico's FAS Inc (NYSE: CHS) is trading lower after the company announced better-than-expected second-quarter financial results, but said it's facing macro supply chain headwinds that it expects will impact sales and gross margin.

Chico's FAS reported quarterly earnings of 21 cents per share, which beat the estimate for a loss of 7 cents per share. The company reported quarterly revenue of $472.1 million, which beat the estimate of $407.35 million.

Chico's FAS expects third-quarter revenue to increase 18% to 22%.

The company acknowledged that there is economic uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The company said it's facing macro supply chain headwinds including higher freight costs, extended inbound transit times and product supplier handover delays driven by the pandemic.
