3QFY23 Results. Net revenues totaled $124 million compared to $134.7 million in the prior year third quarter ended October 30, 2021. Vera Bradley reported consolidated net income of $5.17 million, or EPS of $0.17 per share versus net income of $5.78 million, or EPS of $0.17 per diluted share, last year. Non-GAAP net income was $6.3 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to $6.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share in 3Q22.
Bifurcation Continues. The fiscal third quarter was a replay of the second fiscal quarter in many ways, in our view. Vera Bradley continued to see a bifurcation of its customer base, with higher household incomes continuing to spend, while inflationary pressures continued to negatively affect the purchases of customers with lower household incomes.
