PARAMUS, N.J. (
) -- It's really not
time. The watchmaker saw second-quarter profits plunge 94% as sales continued to tumble.
During the quarter, the company earned $528,000, or 2 cents a share, compared with $8.1 million, or 32 cents, in the year-ago period.
Still, its adjusted profit was 6 cents a share, better than the loss of 21 cents analysts had expected.
The company's revenue tanked 31% to $89.7 million from $129.7 million last year.
Regardless, Movado maintained its full-year outlook of about 50 cents a share.
Last month rival
also posted lower second-quarter profit, but beat Wall Street's forecast and raised its full-year guidance.
