Management Comments:
Dillard's Chief Executive Officer, William Dillard, II, stated, "Clearly, our performance for the quarter and the year was disappointing. We simply did not achieve the level of sales necessary to produce more acceptable results.

Moving forward, we will execute further improvements to our merchandise mix while working to effectively respond to potentially challenging macro-economic conditions. We remain committed to strengthening our appeal to aspirational and contemporary shoppers to set Dillard's apart in the marketplace."
