ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--Net income for HSNi, the parent of the HSN shopping network, finished the second quarter at $32 million, up a robust 29 percent over last year's second quarter.
The company accomplished its firmer bottom line through a gain in net sales of 8 percent, to $482 million, for the quarter, which ended on June 30.
