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."
