Pacific Sunwear of California Inc. announced that total sales for the third quarter (13 weeks) of fiscal 2008 ended November 1, 2008, were $323.6 million, a 5% decrease from total sales of $341.9 million for the third quarter (13 weeks) of fiscal 2007 ended November 3, 2007.

Total Company same-store sales decreased 7% during the third quarter of fiscal 2008.

The Company recorded a loss from continuing operations of $3.5 million, or $(0.05) per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2008 compared to income from continuing operations of $17.1 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2007.

Third quarter results for each period exclude the income statement impact of demo and One Thousand Steps due to the designation of these operations as discontinued operations during the first quarter of fiscal 2008 and the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, respectively. Results for the third quarter of fiscal 2008 include an after-tax, non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $4.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

"It's been well reported that consumer spending decelerated significantly in the September/October period, and we certainly saw this in our own results for the quarter. To strengthen our financial position in this economic downturn, we are focused on reducing our inventory, capital expenditures, and other expenses," commented Sally Frame Kasaks, Chief Executive Officer.

"We remain encouraged by our e-commerce business, which continues to experience strong growth supported, in part, by enhancements to our website and supply chain."

Total sales for the first three quarters (39 weeks) ended November 1, 2008 were $903.2 million, a 2% decrease from total sales of $921.7 million during the first three quarters (39 weeks) ended November 3, 2007.

Same-store sales decreased 3% during the same period. For the first three quarters of fiscal 2008, the Company recorded a loss from continuing operations of $11.8 million, or $(0.18) per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $26.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, in the first three quarters of fiscal 2007.

Earnings results for the first three quarters include the asset impairment charge of $0.07 per diluted share incurred in the first quarter related to the materials handling equipment in the Company's closed Anaheim distribution center and the non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $0.06 per diluted share incurred in the third quarter.

Given the significant downturn in the economic climate in recent months, the Company is updating its fiscal 2008 fourth quarter earnings forecast.

As a result of additional promotional activity and assuming a same-store sales decrease in the negative high-single digit range for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, the Company currently expects to report a fourth quarter loss of $(0.03) to $(0.08) per diluted share, including an estimated gain of approximately $0.11 per diluted share from the previously-announced sale of its Anaheim distribution center.

Pacific Sunwear is a leading lifestyle specialty retailer rooted in the youth culture and fashion vibe of Southern California. The Company sells casual apparel with a limited selection of accessories and footwear designed to meet the needs of teens and young adults. As of November 1, 2008, the Company operated 815 PacSun stores and 125 PacSun Outlet stores for a total of 940 stores in 50 states and Puerto Rico.
