(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). Gap Inc. cited a 25 percent increase in net earnings during the third quarter ended October 31, 2009, to $307 million, or 44 cents per share, from $246 million, or 35 cents per diluted share. According to Glenn Murphy, chairman and chief executive officer of Gap Inc., this marks the company’s highest third quarter operating margin in a decade.

Net sales grew 1 percent, to $3.59 billion from $3.56 billion. Although the company reported sales drops in its Gap North America, Banana Republic North America and International divisions, comparable store sales were flat due to a 10 percent increase in Old Navy North America sales.
