Stocks in this article: DLIA

Direct Segment Results

Total revenue for the direct segment for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 decreased 4.8% to $18.0 million from $18.9 million in the prior year period.

Gross margin for the direct segment was 43.1% compared to 44.4% in the second quarter of the prior year, primarily resulting from decreased postage, handling and other revenue, partially offset by increased merchandise margins.

SG&A expenses for the direct segment were $9.6 million, or 53.6% of sales, compared to $9.8 million, or 52.0% of sales, in the prior year period. The decrease in SG&A expenses in dollars reflects reduced selling expenses.

The operating loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 for the direct segment was $1.9 million as compared to $1.4 million in the prior year period.

First Six Month Results

For the six-month period ended July 30, 2011, total revenue increased 0.3% to $93.5 million from $93.2 million for the prior year period.
