Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 were $352.6 million, an increase of 1% over $347.9 million for the same quarter a year ago. Sales growth for new stores was partially offset by a comparable store sales decline of 3%.

Net sales for maurices stores increased 14%, including a comparable store sales increase of 4%, to $135.8 million, compared to $119.3 million during the year ago quarter.

Net earnings for the fiscal third quarter ended April 26, 2008 increased to $24.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share. This compares to $23.1 million, or $0.33 per diluted share in the year ago period.

This year's quarterly earnings per diluted share were favorably impacted by approximately $0.05 primarily due to a decrease in the number of diluted shares from the share conversion feature of the Company's 2.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024, and the repurchase of approximately 2.6 million shares in the open market during calendar year 2007. In addition, earnings were also favorably impacted by a reduction to the effective tax rate for certain one-time items.

Total net sales for the first nine months of fiscal year 2008 were $1.062 billion, an increase of 1% over $1.047 billion for the fiscal nine-month period a year ago. Comparable store sales decreased 3%.
