Finish Line also said sales rose 1.3 percent, to $343 million, from a year earlier.
Profit will be made public when Finish Line releases its earnings report Sept. 27. The company said it expects to report a loss of 4 to 6 cents per share.
Because earnings were not released, the company did not host a conference call with analysts.
On Aug. 30, Finish Line said it was "disappointed" with a $4.2 million second-quarter loss reported by Genesco Inc., the Tennessee company it has agreed to buy for $1.5 billion. The statement also said Finish Line was "evaluating its options" regarding the purchase but stopped short of saying it would back out of the deal.
