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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
