Third Quarter Fiscal 2010 Results

For the third quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company reported record net earnings of $64.1 million, a slight increase compared to net earnings of $64.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2009.

Paul Marciano, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with the position of our Company today. Our brand enjoys significant momentum worldwide and our management team continues to execute well. We are gaining share in key markets, generating strong cash flows and delivering solid returns. As we look into the future, we will continue to fund key growth initiatives and invest in our infrastructure. International expansion remains a high priority for us and we plan to resume retail development in North America and expand our retail presence in other countries as well."

Mr. Marciano continued, "Our third quarter financial results exceeded our expectations. Each of our businesses performed better than expected in both revenues and earnings, as our customer continued to respond well to our product assortment in all markets around the world. In addition, we managed well, controlling our costs and inventories tightly to protect our profitability. This solid performance resulted in record third quarter earnings and a significant improvement in our cash flows in the period. There have been many challenges over the past year, and we responded well to them. As a result, we are a stronger company today. Through it all, we have remained true to our brand and focused on our customer, always delivering outstanding product and improving our service in our stores. We strongly believe that we are well positioned to achieve our objectives for growth and profitability."

Total net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 decreased 1.0% to $522.8 million from $527.9 million in the prior-year quarter.
