Included in net income for the prior year third quarter is a net after-tax credit totaling $2.4 million or $0.05 per share comprised of the following items:

A $0.7 million after-tax gain ($0.01 per share) related to the sale of two former retail store locations

Dillard's Chief Executive Officer, William T. Dillard, II, stated, "Another positive comparable store sales increase and expense control highlighted our third quarter at Dillard's, as did our aggressive execution of $187 million of share buyback.
