12:01 EDTGESVince Holding sinks to 52-week low after CEO resigns
Shares of Vince Holding (VNCE), a contemporary fashion brand, are sinking after the company announced the resignation of its Chief Executive Officer. WHAT'S NEW: Vince Holding announced yesterday that CEO Jill Granoff resigned from the company. Granoff, who advised the Board of her decision in advance, will remain CEO through a transition period, the company said. The company's Board of Directors plans to work with an executive search firm to identify potential CEO candidates. The company also announced that it has hired Livia Lee as its new senior vice president of Merchandising, reporting directly to Granoff in the interim and then her successor once appointed. Lee will join the company on July 20. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 25, Vince Holding Chief Financial Officer Lisa Klinger resigned. The company appointed Mark Brody, most recently Managing Director and Group CFO at Sun Capital Partners, as interim CFO. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm William Blair downgraded Vince Holding to Market Perform from Outperform citing reduced visibility on company's long-term strategy following the resignation of CEO Jill Granoff and CFO Lisa Klinger. Despite the downgrade, William Blair did note that its store checks continue to suggest the brand remains healthy. The firm sees limited downside to numbers from these levels. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Vince Holding fell $2.33, or about 19.5%, to $9.62 on more than four times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $9.46. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 72% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other contemporary fashion brands include Guess?, Inc. (GES), Ralph Lauren (RL) and Express, Inc. (EXPR).
