Coach's fiscal second-quarter profit fell as it incurred costs related to its transformation plan. Still, its adjusted profit topped Wall Street's view.
Its stock rose in Thursday premarket trading.
The handbag, accessories and footwear company earned $183.5 million, or 66 cents per share, for the period ended Dec. 27. A year earlier the New York company earned $297.4 million, or $1.06 per share.
The current quarter include $20 million in charges mostly related to renovations, lease termination costs tied to store closures and organizational costs. It also had $4 million in costs related to the pending Stuart Weitzman acquisition.

The results surpassed Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for earnings of 65 cents per share.
