"With his extensive experience in driving innovation and impressive track record for creating outstanding results, Mr. Jones is a valuable addition to our team as we revitalize our brand on an international scale. Most importantly, his in-depth knowledge of the intimate apparel and related products industry, including developing these divisions of major department stores as well as the rollout of Gap Body, will bring the fresh perspective we believe is essential to our future success," concluded Mr. Lynch.

"Frederick's of Hollywood is a historic brand that pioneered a lot of exciting and innovative merchandise. Over the past two years, the Company has significantly strengthened its financial position and streamlined its operations. I believe the Company is now properly positioned to focus on aggressively regaining market share," commented Mr. Jones.

"Having followed the Frederick's of Hollywood brand for many years, I am excited to be in a position to offer my knowledge and experiences in order to help the Company effectively capitalize on the growth opportunities that exist both domestically and abroad."
