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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
