In light of the decisions announced today, and based on the Company’s current expectations for the economy and consumer environment, Target now expects its second-quarter operating margin rate will be in a range around 2%. For the back half of the year, Target now expects an operating margin rate in a range around 6%, a rate that would exceed the Company’s average Fall season performance in the years leading up to the pandemic. The company continues to expect full-year revenue growth in the low- to mid-single digit range, and expects to maintain or gain market share in 2022. Miscellaneous
