I invested in DLIA years ago and just started to look at it again as my daughter is now old enough that she is gaining interest in Delia's. I was impressed to see Tracy Gardner jump over and I always invest with strong management teams. That being said, I don't know if DLIA has the cash to allow Tracy to turn things around without some external investment.
Does anyone here know anything about DLIA cash flow, cash on hand, and external investors? It looks like all of the information I was able to find is dated. As it looks like the call is on 5/30, I may wait until then to buy in... if I can get a clearer picture on the financials.
They had over $100 mil in cash when they sold a division[CCS...skateboarding apparel, etc.] five years ago. This allowed them to run their business despite heavy losses and no store expansion. Their cash is now in the teens. When they sell their Alloy Catalog Division they should get enough cash to give Gardner some breathing room. However, if they want to start expanding again they will need a Big Investor who will probably buy in because Gardner is now running the show. At least their is some hope after years of pure dispair.
I will be following your post. This stock looks attractive to me because I have small investment pockets right now. But still not sure how the company will perform. My thoughts are summer is here and teens will be purchasing some "awesome" clothes. I just don't know if it's enough to turn this company around? Plus teens are all about purchasing from the "cool" place. Does this company still win it over with the teens?
