Finlay announces expected impact of Macy's consolidation
Feb '08
Finlay Enterprises Inc, a leading retailer of fine jewelry operating luxury stand- alone specialty jewelry stores and licensed fine jewelry departments in department stores throughout the United States, announced that 94 of its total 316 Macy's Inc locations will not be renewed upon expiration of the license agreements on January 31, 2009. This development results from the corporate restructuring initiatives of Macy's, Inc. announced on February 6, 2008.

Macy's Inc announced three divisional changes including the consolidation of Macy's North into Macy's East, Macy's Northwest into Macy's West, and Macy's Midwest into Macy's South.

The consolidation of Macy's North as well as that of Macy's Northwest, will result in the non-renewal of license agreements with Finlay and the loss of 57 doors and 37 doors, respectively. Macy's has notified Finlay of its intent to renew the license agreements for the newly-merged division of Macy's Midwest and Macy's South which consists of 222 doors.

In fiscal 2007, the Macy's North and Macy's Northwest locations generated approximately $120 million in combined revenue for Finlay. The total revenue generated from all of the Macy's locations in fiscal 2007 was approximately $338 million. Finlay is currently evaluating the impact of the expected closings on its financial results for fiscal 2008 and beyond.

Arthur E. Reiner, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Finlay Enterprises, Inc. commented, "While we are disappointed with the prospect of losing a portion of our Macy's business in January 2009, we will retain 222 Macy's locations and all of our Bloomingdales locations. We have been able to diversify our business over the last three years by entering into the luxury free-standing specialty jewelry sector.

The luxury market continues to be one of the most attractive segments of the jewelry industry despite ongoing challenges in the macro economy. We will continue to focus on expanding in this area, while concentrating on maximizing the return of our existing lease business."
