"Our core Finish Line business has performed as expected against the backdrop of a challenging economy and a difficult comparison to the same quarter of last year," said Glenn S. Lyon, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "Although the economic downturn has changed consumer behavior, we're developing and implementing strategies to drive profitable growth in this environment.

We believe that these initiatives, together with a continued focus on cost controls and a strong balance sheet, provide the foundation we need to successfully manage through this environment and drive stronger returns as market conditions improve."

Mr. Lyon continued, "We are pleased that we have announced a plan, and entered into a definitive agreement, to exit the unprofitable Man Alive business. This transaction will allow us to focus our time and resources on continuing to improve our core Finish Line business as Man Alive joins the Jimmy Jazz team."
