NYSE-listed, Kate Spade & Company which manages fashion brands like, kate spade new york, Kate Spade Saturday and Jack Spade reported a 48.7% year-on-year jump in net sales from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2014.

Net sales from continuing operations at Kate Spade & Company for the second quarter of 2014 were $266 million, a rise of $87 million or 48.7% from the second quarter of 2013. Kate Spade said this reflects increases in the Kate Spade North America and Kate Spade International segments.

However, gross profit as a percentage of net sales decreased to 58.6% in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 61.8% in the comparable 2013 period, reflecting the impact of off-price sales margin, primarily driven by the Kate Spade Saturday brand, due to excess inventory and raw materials disposal that arose in connection with balancing consumer demand with inventory buys in the launch year.
