Design Within Reach (DWRI) reported a preliminary third-quarter loss of $441,000, or 3 cents a share. A year earlier, the furniture retailer posted earnings of $907,000, or 6 cents a share. Analysts' forecasts called for a profit of 4 cents a share. The latest quarter's results included $670,000 in costs related to a systems conversion, and the company said results were also hurt by promotional activity and weakness in the U.S. dollar.

"During the same period, we nearly doubled our margins and grew the Private Label business by expanding the product mix beyond casual bottoms and attracting new customers with our proven design and marketing expertise," said Barry Aved, president and CEO. Analysts expected earnings of 3 cents a share on revenue of $62.4 million. The stock rose 39 cents, or 37%, to $1.45 in after-hours trading.
