Regis shares drop after company reports 4th-quarter revenue decline


EDINA, Minnesota — Shares of Regis Corp. dropped 10 percent in morning trading on Friday after the hair salon owner reported a continued decline in quarterly revenue.

The owner of hair salon chains Supercuts and MasterCuts said it had a loss of $2.6 million, or 5 cents per share. Earnings, adjusted for non-recurring costs and to account for discontinued operations, came to 1 cent per share.

"Fiscal 2015 has been a year where we began to stabilize the business and we have seen change beginning to add value in many of our salons and districts," CEO Dan Hanrahan said in a statement.

For the year, the company reported that its loss narrowed to $33.8 million, or 62 cents per share. Revenue fell 3 percent to $1.84 billion.

Regis shares dropped $1.38, or 10.5 percent to $11.79 in morning trading. Shares had dropped 21 percent since the beginning of the year. The stock has fallen 9 percent in the last 12 months.
