What to look for when Vince Holding (VNCE) reports Q3 results on Thursday

After reporting a surprise profit for the July-quarter, Vince Holding (NYSE: VNCE) is scheduled to publish its third-quarter results Thursday at 4:15 pm ET. Analysts expect the luxury apparel brand to remain in the positive territory and report earnings of $0.66 per share on revenues of $90.5 million, which is up 8% year-over-year.

Of late, the direct-to-consumer and wholesale channels have been performing well, which is expected to continue in the to-be-reported quarter. The ongoing global expansion across the retail, wholesale and e-commerce platforms should contribute to sales growth this time. Also, efforts are on to enhance brand awareness in the key markets.

Recovery Mode

Overall, the general view is that Vince is finally back on the growth path, after a long-drawn slump that earlier pushed it to the brink of an operational overhaul. The reasonable valuation and brand power show the company would maintain the momentum during the remainder of the year and beyond.

Meanwhile, initial estimates indicate that the bottom-line will remain under pressure from the high costs. A potential drag on profitability could be a concern for investors and pose a hindrance to the stock’s recovery.

Q2 Results

For the second quarter, Vince reported earnings of $0.08 per share, compared to a loss last year, even as sales increased 13% annually to $71 million. The results also came in above Wall Street’s prediction.

Acquisition

Last month, Vince purchased women’s apparel brands Rebecca Taylor and Parker. The acquired brands, which recorded a combined net sales of about $84 million during the twelve months ended February 2019, are sold at high-end department stores across the world. The transaction is expected to be dilutive to Vince’s earnings this year.
