FOURTH QUARTER SUMMARY

Net sales for the fourteen weeks increased 40.6% to $86.7 million. Net sales increases were driven by a 9.2% comparable boutique sales increase following a 14.7% increase in the prior year period and 77 new boutique openings since the end of the prior year quarter. The comparable sales increase was driven primarily by increased transactions. In addition, the increase in net sales was driven by strong growth in our clothing and jewelry categories.

Gross profit, as a percentage of net sales, increased 92 basis points to 53.37%. The increase was attributable to leverage of occupancy costs on increased sales.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 20.8% to $21.6 million. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A decreased 408 basis points to 24.91%, primarily attributable to leverage on increased sales.
