“We look forward to leveraging his tremendous creative talent, retail experience and strong leadership skills as we implement the Vince playbook into our acquired brands…[Cateron] will play a pivotal role in helping the leadership team as we move forward with our strategic initiatives to capture the long-term potential for both the Rebecca Taylor and Parker brands.”
Vince completed the acquisition of both Rebecca Taylor and Parker for a total cash consideration of $19.7 million in November 2019, funding the acquisition with cash through its own existing revolving credit facility. At the time of the purchase, combined net sales for Rebecca Taylor and Parker were around $84 million in the last fiscal year.
In September, Vince announced significant gains in the second quarter, as it swung to a profit, reporting net income of $1 million for the second quarter, ended August 3, 2019, or $0.08 per diluted share. That was compared to a net loss of $3.8 million, or $0.33 per share, in the same period in the previous year.
