Zale Corp. continued to show signs of renewed strength as it neared a hurdle for its $1.4 billion acquisition by competitor Signet Jewelers Ltd.
In the third quarter ended April 30, the Dallas-based jewelry retailer’s net income rose 74.6 percent to $8.8 million, or 19 cents a diluted share, from $5.1 million, or 13 cents, in the year-ago period. The performance in the 2014 period beat the analysts’ consensus estimate for earnings per share of 17 cents by 2 cents.
"I love to fight and I got into a lot of trouble, so instead, I thought I'd do it professionally," says Bellator MMA fighter Liam McGeary. #wwdfashion (📷: @andyboyle; Interview by @jeanpalmieri; Styled by @thealexbadia)
