Robert Hanson, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our second quarter results reflected disappointing product execution in women’s. Additionally, we faced a highly promotional and competitive retail landscape and a decline in traffic, which have continued into the third quarter.

“We are working hard to strengthen our assortments, marketing efforts and overall execution, while maintaining tight inventories and disciplined expense management. Although extremely disappointed with our results, I’m confident in the strength of our brands, our strategic initiatives including, factory stores, aerie, omni-channel and international, as well as the team’s resolve to regain momentum and improve our bottom line performance.”
