Differential Brands slips into Q4 net loss
Mar '17
For the three months ended December 31, 2016, Differential Brands slipped into a net loss from continuing operations at $4.9 million, or $0.37 loss per share as against net income from continuing operations of $0.7 million, or $0.07 income per share in the prior year's same quarter. Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 surged 108 per cent to $42.0 million.

The company attributed the massive increase in sales to a 179 per cent increase in wholesale segment sales and a 34 per cent rise in consumer direct segment sales. They also rose from the addition of the Hudson Jeans and SWIMS brands in the period.

In the reporting quarter, gross profit stood at $21.8 million, which includes $9.7 million in gross profit from the Hudson and SWIMS acquisitions. Gross profit in the prior fiscal's fourth quarter amounted to $12.1 million.

Gross margin however fell steeply to 51.8 per cent in the quarter under review vis-à-vis 59.9 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2015. (AR)
