L Brands reported mixed results for its crucial fourth quarter amid falling sales at its embattled Victoria's Secret division.

Even more closures are planned for this year, with L Brands saying that 53 of their North American stores are expected to shut their doors this year.

The closings come after a tough holiday period, in which comparable and in-store sales slid at Victoria's Secret and Pink stores.

Burgdoerfer said the company expects the store closures and other factors, including recent leadership changes and an upcoming website relaunch, to improve the performance of the company's lingerie brands in the coming year.
