Julian R. Geiger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The last three months, like the ten consecutive quarters that preceded it, was a period of record sales and record earnings for Aeropostale. We all know these results are extraordinary given the macro-economic climate in which we are operating. Clearly, we are proud of our organization's determination to succeed and its dedication to the principles that have made Aeropostale a destination lifestyle brand."
