Luxury apparel retailer Vince Holding’s (NYSE: VNCE) stock jumped more than 15% during the after-hours as the company swung to profit in the second quarter 2019. Vince reported earnings of $1 million or $0.08 per share compared to a loss of $3.8 million or $0.33 per share in the prior year quarter.

Wholesale segment sales increased 14.7% to $43.4 million due primarily to the acceleration of seasonal wholesale shipments.

Comparable sales increased 7.1%, including e-commerce sales, primarily due to an increase in transactions and average dollar sale.
