“We ended the fiscal year with another strong quarter and positive momentum across our business,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Glenn Lyon. “Our fourth quarter and full year results are a positive indication that the sales and merchandising strategies we are deploying across our multiple channels are resonating with consumers and influencing how they shop.”

“As the retail landscape continues to rapidly evolve, we are committed to further distinguishing the Finish Line brand from the competition and building a sustainable multi-division, omni-channel business for the future. In the near-term, this will involve additional investments in technology, personnel, marketing and store upgrades that we believe will drive increased productivity and greater efficiency through our supply chain and lead to greater earnings power in the years ahead.”

“We are confident we have the right strategic plan in place and we look forward to building on our consistent track record of creating value for our shareholders over the long term.”
