We are excited about our growth initiatives for 2009, which include all three of our Wal-Mart brands, OP, STARTER and DANSKIN NOW, and the CANNON launch at Sears and Kmart.

Longer-term we will have growth from a number of international initiatives that we are working on. While we have taken acquisition revenue out of our guidance it remains an important part of our growth strategy and we believe we will continue to acquire additional iconic brands."

The Company is forecasting free cash flow for 2008 to be in a range of $116 million to $119 million. The Company is reaffirming its previously issued 2008 guidance of revenue in a range of $215 million to $220 million and diluted earnings per share of between $1.15 and $1.20. This guidance relates to the existing portfolio of brands only and includes no revenue assumption from acquisitions.
