XCel Brands reported on its latest quarter as well.
The company reported fourth-quarter earnings at a net loss of $10.2 million, or 55-cents-per basic and diluted share, due in part to a goodwill charge, but partially off-set by a one-time tax benefit.

On the revenue front, the company brought in sales of $7 million, a 2% increase compared to the $6.9 million from the year-ago quarter. This figure was fueled by higher net revenue from the company’s interactive television business and the wholesale department store business.
