Fourth Quarter Highlights (4QFY10 vs. 4QFY09)

• Comparable sales increased 2.9% and total sales increased 0.7% to $111.5 million
• Gross margin decreased 100 basis points to 45.4%
• Net income increased to $5.3 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, from net income of $3.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share

Fiscal 2010 Highlights (FY10 vs. FY09)

• Comparable sales increased 1.5% and total sales decreased 0.4% to $393.6 million
• Gross margin improved 166 basis points to 45.8%
• Net income increased to $15.4 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, from net income of $6.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share
• Debt-free and cash positive at January 29, 2011, the Company has full availability of $63.0 million under the its credit facility and cash on hand of $4.1 million

David Levin, President and CEO, stated, "With essentially a flat sales base, we were able to double our operating income to $16.2 million from $8.0 million last year and significantly grow earnings per share to $0.32. In 2011, we are expecting continued improvement to earnings per share in the range of $0.40-$0.45. We anticipate our customer visits will slowly recover from the economic downturn and produce comparable sales growth of 4.0%-4.5%, gross profit margins will remain strong and improve slightly, and SG&A will increase only modestly.

“Furthermore, based on the strong initial performance of the DXL test stores in 2010, and overwhelming positive customer feedback, we are pursuing expansion of DXL with an additional 10-14 locations and the launch of a new, functionally rich DXL shopping website by the second quarter of 2011 providing a multi-channel DXL experience to our loyal customer base."

On a comparable basis, sales from the Company's direct businesses increased by 3.2% and sales from its retail business increased 1.1%.

While traffic was down 4.2% for fiscal 2010, it was a substantial improvement from the -9.7% and -9.2% experienced in fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2008, respectively. Traffic trends were flat during the fourth quarter of 2010.
