Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results
For the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company generated net earnings of $66.3 million, a 4.0% decrease compared to net earnings of $69.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Diluted earnings per share decreased 5.3%, reaching $0.71, compared to $0.75 for the prior-year quarter.

Paul Marciano, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to deliver third quarter earnings consistent with our expectations, even as economic pressures have intensified and are affecting consumer confidence in many of our markets, particularly in Europe. During the quarter, we made good progress on many key strategic initiatives.

Our efforts to elevate our brand in North America are yielding significant improvements in profitability. We enjoy momentum in Asia and the newer markets in Europe where our brand is well known but where our business is still under-penetrated. And we are focusing on sound execution, managing our inventories, expenses and capital prudently."

Mr. Marciano continued, "It is difficult to predict how long the current economic conditions may persist. As always, we plan to manage carefully and prudently, focusing on those things that we can directly control. Our goal is to improve productivity, expand our long term profitability and deliver outstanding returns to our shareholders, while always protecting our brand.

"Backed by our strong balance sheet, we are committed to pursuing the long term potential of our iconic lifestyle brand in a very strategic and disciplined way that is consistent with prevailing market conditions."
