Neiman Marcus posted a 50 percent decline in third-quarter earnings on Thursday, blaming the disappointing results on a large loss from discontinued operations.

For the three months ended Oct. 28, net income at the luxury retailer fell to $27.2 million from $55 million last year. Revenues grew 9.8 percent to $1.03 billion from $946.2 million in the year-ago period, and comparable revenue increased 6.8 percent.

The retailer is holding a conference call today to discuss results.
