lululemon athletica inc. announced financial results for the first quarter ended May 5, 2013. lululemon also announced that after a five and half year tenure Christine Day will step down as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer when a successor is named.

The Board has formed a search committee and enacted its CEO succession plan. Ms. Day’s decision is being announced at this time so the Board has the benefit of a healthy transition period, and can openly use that time for a thorough search for the next CEO.

“Being a part of lululemon for the past five and a half years has been an incredible journey. I am proud of building a world class team that has produced one of the best growth, brand and profit stories in retail,” said Ms. Day.

“Plans have been laid for the next five years and a vision set for the next ten. Now is the right time to bring in a CEO who will drive the next phase of lululemon’s development and growth. I will continue to actively lead the organization while the Board searches for a new CEO, and will work to ensure a smooth transition.”

“Christine has been an exceptional leader for lululemon, successfully embracing the culture while growing the business and returning value to all of our stakeholders including our guests, employees, partners and shareholders,” said Chip Wilson, Chairman of the lululemon Board of Directors.

“I thank Christine for her leadership, contributions and commitment to lululemon. I am confident that we will find the right person to lead this strong team and continue to build on this excellent foundation.”

Results for the first quarter ended may 5, 2013

Commenting on events of the first quarter Ms. Day added: “The past quarter has been one of the most important in our company’s history. While we regret that we had quality issues with our black luon we are proud of the organization’s ability to get luon delivered back into our stores within 90 days of having pulled it from our line, all the while keeping our guests happy and engaged with the brand.”
