The Company noted that fiscal 2007 represented a 52-week period, while fiscal 2006 represented a 53-week period.

Commenting on the announcement, Ann Taylor President & Chief Executive Officer Kay Krill stated, "As we expected, our results in January continued to be impacted by the macroeconomic slowdown as well as continued soft traffic trends at both divisions. To keep our inventories turning, we were promotionally aggressive during the month, and we are entering fiscal 2008 in a healthy inventory position.
