-As previously announced, the Company changed its fiscal year-end to the Saturday closest to the end of January, from the Saturday nearest to the end of February, to better align the Company's financial reporting periods with its operational cycle and with other specialty retail companies. In this release, except as otherwise noted, financial results for the fourteen and fifty-three week periods ended February 2, 2013 are compared to the thirteen week period and the fifty-two week period ended January 28, 2012, respectively.

LuAnn Via, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are delighted with the continued momentum in our business in the fourth quarter due to the ongoing execution of our strategic initiatives. Our customers responded very favorably to our well-balanced merchandise offering, improved value proposition and enhanced marketing programs. I'm proud of the work our team has done; however, we are only in the fourth inning, and we intend to continue to build upon this foundation to drive sustainable long-term sales and earnings growth."

Results for the Fifty-Three Weeks Ended February 2, 2013

-Net loss for the fifty-three week period totaled $16.1 million, or ($0.45) per share, including the $0.15 per share benefit related to the restructuring charges mentioned above, and a negative effective tax rate of 0.6%, which is significantly lower than the statutory rate due to the Company's continued maintenance of a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets. This compares to a net loss of $81.4 million, or ($2.29) per share, for the fifty-two weeks ended January 28, 2012.
