Company to consider options as reliance on financing increases.

While reporting its first quarter results on Thursday, Signet Jewelers also said it will conduct a review of its credit portfolio, according to a release from the company. The retailer, which hired Goldman Sachs as an advisor in the review process, notes it will consider a “full range of options” regarding its credit operations. First-quarter credit metrics showed “strong sequential improvement,” the retailer says.

The review announcement comes as Signet has increased its reliance on financing, taking on consumer loans that bankers may view as subprime debt. Stock analysts have also called into question an accounting method used by the retailer that could underestimate future losses.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
