Golfsmith Hits It Straight in 3Q
Austin, TX-based Golfsmith International Holdings kept fiscal matters neatly on the fairway for the third quarter ended Sept. 30. The company posted a nearly 10% increase in revenue, to $94.0 million from $85.5 million for the third quarter in 2005. The increase was due to the addition of seven stores over the past year and a 5% increase in net revenue from its catalogs and Websites.

Third-quarter net income nearly tripled, to $3.4 million from $1.2 million last year. Net income for the quarter was positively affected by a $2.1 million decrease in year-over-year interest expenses.

Net revenue for San Francisco-based gifts cataloger RedEnvelope increased 18%, to $15.5 million for the fiscal second quarter ended Oct. 1.
