Net income in the quarter increased 62.9 percent to $8 million from $4.9 million in the comparable quarter a year ago.

This reflects an increase in comparable-store sales of 10.4 percent, including 15.1 percent for Anthropologie and 7.7 percent for Urban. It also reflects a 33.9 percent rise in direct-to-consumer sales resulting from an increase in circulation of the Anthropologie catalog in the quarter and the continued strength in urbn.com sales.
