During the fiscal first quarter of 2014, the Company repurchased approximately $273 million of its common stock, representing approximately 4.2 million shares.  As of May 31, 2014, the remaining balance of the existing share repurchase program authorized in December 2012 was approximately $861 million. 
 
The Company is modeling net earnings per diluted share to be approximately $1.08 to $1.16 for the fiscal second quarter of 2014 and, consistent with the prior estimate, to increase by a mid-single digit percentage for all of fiscal 2014.  The modeling of net earnings per diluted share is based upon a number of assumptions which will be described in the Company's first quarter of fiscal 2014 conference call.
 
Cost Plus World Market was excluded from the comparable sales calculations through the end of the fiscal first half of 2013 and is included beginning with the fiscal third quarter of 2013.  Linen Holdings is excluded from the comparable sales calculations and will continue to be excluded on an ongoing basis because it represents non-retail activity.
