Kay Krill, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are extremely pleased with ANN INC.'s record earnings per share of $0.63 this quarter, up 34% over last year.  Our outstanding results were driven by a seven percent increase in sales, including a comparable sales increase of five percent, a record gross margin rate of 56 percent and a 27 percent increase in operating income.
