The Company's gross profit margin was 32.6% in the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter versus 32.2% in the fourth quarter of the prior year.

Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $5.2 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, including expenses associated with the development of the Company's new e-commerce platform of $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 of $4.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share.

"We are pleased to have delivered another quarter of earnings growth in a very challenging retail environment," said Steven G. Miller, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "As we previously reported, our fourth quarter sales comparisons were impacted by cycling against the surge of firearm and ammunition sales during the prior year, as well as the lack of favorable winter weather across our western markets.
