New York & Company Inc, a specialty apparel chain with 586 retail stores, announced results for the first quarter ended May 3, 2008.

The results of operations discussed below are for the Company's continuing operations only, the New York & Company brand.

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2008, net sales were $270.1 million, as compared to $274.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2007. Comparable store sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2008 decreased 6.6%, compared to a 0.7% decrease in the prior year first quarter.

Net income from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal year 2008 was $6.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, as compared to prior year net income from continuing operations of $5.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, representing a 37.5% increase in earnings per diluted share.

Richard P. Crystal, New York & Company's Chairman and CEO, stated: "We are pleased to report better than expected first quarter results. During the period, we maintained our inventory and expense management discipline while providing our customers with compelling fashions across our apparel and accessory categories. At the same time, we eliminated non-brand building promotions.

These strategies, in a difficult consumer environment, proved highly successful for our Company and brand, as evidenced by our increase in gross profit margin and a 37.5% rise in earnings per share for the period. We expect the environment for consumer spending to remain difficult this year and as such will maintain our previously stated strategies.

We expect fiscal 2008 to represent significant accomplishments toward achieving our goals of building brand loyalty, increasing earnings and enhancing value for our shareholders."
