Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO commented, "While we are pleased with the strong financial results, the severe winter weather negatively impacted sales for the third quarter, notably during the January and February months. January comparable written orders were down by 13.4% to prior year, February was down by 1.7%.  We did see good order growth in March as the weather improved with a 15.6% increase in comparable written orders. We are positioned with stronger backlogs going into the fourth quarter."
 
Mr. Kathwari concluded, "Our competitive advantages include our variety of styles from contemporary to casual, a strong retail network, a focus on quality products with approximately 70% made in our own North American workshops and our major focus on adding technology. We remain cautiously optimistic about increasing our sales and profitability."
