Indigo reports lower sales, net loss in second quarter as customers cut back


Published November 7, 2023 at 6:59 pm

TORONTO — Indigo Books & Music Inc. reported a net loss of $22.4 million in its second quarter, down from a net loss of $15.9 million a year earlier.

Revenues for the Toronto-based retailer were $206,885, down from $236,247 a year earlier.

The company says it lost 80 cents per diluted share, down from a loss of 57 cents during the same quarter last year.

Indigo says sales in person and online were negatively impacted by the challenging macro-economic environment, with reduced demand and heightened price sensitivity among shoppers.

The company says these challenges were compounded by temporary disruptions from the launch of its new website.

CEO Heather Reisman, who recently returned to the helm of the company, says her team is committed to returning Indigo to profit and growth.
