Ann Taylor Stores Corporation reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, ended October 31, 2009.

For the quarter, the Company reported earnings per diluted share of $0.20 excluding after-tax restructuring and asset impairment charges of $0.17 per diluted share, compared with earnings per diluted share of $0.03 in the third quarter of 2008, excluding after-tax restructuring and asset impairment charges totaling $0.27 per diluted share. On a GAAP basis, including the aforementioned restructuring and impairment charges, earnings per diluted share was $0.03 in the third quarter of 2009, compared with a loss per diluted share of $0.24 in the third quarter of 2008.

Kay Krill, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our results for the quarter were a direct result of our strategy to maximize gross margin performance by tightly managing inventories, focusing on full-price selling and controlling costs. I am pleased that our performance also reflects the cumulative benefits of our ongoing restructuring program initiatives. Today, we are a more efficient and effective Company. Our emphasis going forward is to continue the repositioning of the Ann Taylor division and to ensure that LOFT further strengthens its positioning as the destination for casual, feminine and stylish product at great value.

"We have made significant progress on enhancing and differentiating our brands and providing our clients with style, quality and value. LOFT's product offering resonated with our clients, with casual apparel performing particularly well. I am pleased with the response to our newer categories, which expand the LOFT brand to better serve our clients' lifestyle needs. At Ann Taylor, the launch of the new Fall collection was an important first step in our multi-season strategy to reposition the brand. The initial client response has been encouraging, and we look forward to further progress as we continue to test, learn from and refine the assortment. Looking ahead, we expect to build on the product successes we've achieved to date and move forward on our objective of building sales momentum and profitable growth."
