The trendy apparel maker said that for its third quarter of fiscal 2018, it brought in earnings of $13.8 million, or 55 cents per share.

Zumiez added that it raked in revenue of $248.8 million for the quarter, which was also better than Wall Street was calling for. Six analysts who were surveyed by Zacks came to a midpoint revenue guidance of $248.6 million for the company’s third quarter.

For its fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, the company said that it sees its revenue as being in the range of $295 million to $301 million. Analysts who were surveyed by Zacks said they were calling for revenue of $315.4 million for the period.
