Mike Brooks, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our operating results for the fourth quarter were in-line with our expectations and represent a nice finish to a solid year for our Company. Given the difficult economic conditions and the challenging consumer retail environment, we are pleased by the progress we made improving the productivity of our company throughout 2008.

This included: lowering our operating expenses nearly $9 million, or 9%; improving our wholesale gross margin 180 basis points through increased manufacturing efficiencies and more favorable sales transaction terms; and better inventory management. This allowed us to report a dramatic increase in net income despite a modest sales decline. It also allowed us to reduce borrowings under our credit facility during the year resulting in a $2.3 million, or 20% decrease in annual interest expense payments and a $15.8 million, or 15% decline in our debt levels from a year ago.”
