Joe’s Jeans Inc. announced financial results for the second quarter ended May 31, 2014. 
 
Highlights:
-Second quarter net sales increased 56% to $48.2 million;
-Wholesale net sales increased 66%;
-Retail store net sales increased 19%; and
-Operating income increased 55% to $3.3 million compared to $2.1 million in the prior year period.
 
For the second quarter ended May 31, 2014, overall net sales were $48.2 million compared to $30.9 million in the prior year comparative period, or a 56% increase. We completed our acquisition of Hudson Clothing Holdings, Inc. on September 30, 2013 and our results for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 reflect the operation of Hudson as one of our wholly-owned subsidiaries.
 
Our overall gross profit for the quarter increased to $22.6 million from $13.5 million in the prior year comparative period, or a 67% increase. Our overall gross margin in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was 47% compared to 44% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Operating expense in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $19.3 million compared to $11.4 million a year ago. 
 
Our operating income was $3.3 million compared to $2.1 million in the prior year comparative period. We had net income of $2.3 million compared to $1.2 million in the prior year period. As a result, our fully diluted earnings per share was $0.01 for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $0.02 in same period a year ago.
 
Marc Crossman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We have been working these past two quarters to position both companies to realize the cost savings benefits from our acquisition of Hudson. We expect to begin to see the benefit of that work in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. 
 
“We expect the savings to continue to ramp up during the fourth quarter and by year end, we expect to be running at an annualized cost savings rate in excess of $10 million per year.” Mr. Crossman concluded, “Furthermore, we expect our core results, excluding these cost savings, to pick up in the back half of the year, as we are already seeing improvement in our same store sales comps at our company owned retail stores.”
 
Wholesale
Net sales for our wholesale segment in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 increased 66% to $40.4 million compared to $24.4 million in the year ago period. Wholesale net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 included $17.9 million in wholesale net sales from Hudson. Gross margin percentages for our wholesale segment were 43% for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to 37% in the prior year comparable quarter.
