J. Crew’s Brighter Outlook

Debt watchdog Moody’s Investors Service is feeling a little more bullish on J. Crew Group Inc.
The rating agency changed its outlook on the retailer’s debt to “positive” from “stable” and reaffirmed the company’s Caa2 corporate family rating, which still indicates the debt is “subject to very high credit risk” under Moody’s scale.
Moody’s pegged the change in outlook to steps the company’s taken to lessen its debt load as well as a confidence in its efforts to improve sales and earnings.
“J. Crew has reduced its leverage by about 2.5 times since the July 2017 debt exchange, as a result of cost savings and growth at the Madewell brand,” said Raya Sokolyanska, Moody’s vice president and lead analyst for J. Crew.
“The sustainability of earnings momentum going forward depends on J. Crew’s ability to stabilize and grow the namesake brand,” Sokolyanska said. “Comparable-sales declines are decelerating, driven by a number of initiatives that could lead to a return to revenue growth — such as adding subbrands and product categories, improving omnichannel capabilities, shortening the product cycle and growing wholesale partnerships including Nordstrom in North America.”
West Elm veteran James Brett took over the reins as chief executive officer at J. Crew last summer, when

The 2009-2014 World Outlook for Golf Bags, Handcarts for Carrying Golf Bags, Golf Club Shafts Sold Separately, Tees, and Training Devices for Putting

The 2009-2014 World Outlook for Golf Bags, Handcarts for Carrying Golf Bags, Golf Club Shafts Sold Separately, Tees, and Training Devices for Putting


This econometric study covers the world outlook for golf bags, handcarts for carrying golf bags, golf club shafts sold separately, tees, and training devices for putting and driving across more than 200 countries. For each year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the country in question (in millions of U.S. dollars), the percent share the country is of the region and of the globe. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a country vis-à-vis others. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved. This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the 230 countries of the world). This study gives, however, my estimates for the worldwide latent demand, or the P.I.E, for golf bags, handcarts for carrying golf bags, golf club shafts sold separately, tees, and training devices for putting and driving. It also shows how the P.I.E. is divided across the world s regional and national markets. For each country, I also show my estimates of how the P.I.E. grows over time (positive or negative growth). In order to make these estimates, a multi-stage methodology was employed that is often taught in courses on international strategic planning at graduate schools of business.

This official Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) document – converted for accurate flowing-text ebook format reproduction – offers the latest data on the economic impact of civil aviation. This concise report is ideal for policymakers and industry officials. This version contains several new points of analysis including the economic impact of federal spending on aviation and hard-to-quantify economic enablers such as speed, cost, flexibility, reliability and safety. Over the decades, civil aviation has been a catalyst for commerce.In today’s ever-changing and innovative world, aviation provides a vital link to economic opportunities at home and abroad. In the wake of global economic and financial uncertainties, runways have become the new main streets for cities and towns to get down to business and soar once more.In 2009, civil aviation supported over 10 million jobs, contributed .3 trillion in total economic activity and accounted for 5.2 percent of total U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Civilian aircraft engines, equipment and parts have been the top net export for the past decade.Our economic success clearly depends on the success of aviation. So the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is committed to providing the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world. As we move forward, the FAA will continue to invest in airports, and build the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). NextGen is a transformation of the National Airspace System.
