Sales Dipping at Marvel

Marvel’s sales are down due to rising operational costs and digital initiatives. Since 2008, earnings were down 17.5% to $21.6 million and revenue was down $3.6% to $58.3 million. Still, Marvel has excellent margins at 37%-40% for the year 2008 but that is down from its 42% operating margin in 2007.
