Ethan Allen Interiors Inc reported operating results for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2008.

Three Month Results:

During the quarter ended March 31, 2008, four Design Centers were converted to smaller size Design Studios better suited to the markets they serve. In addition, seven Design Centers and two retail Service Centers were closed and, for the most part, were consolidated into other existing operations resulting in a total pretax restructuring and impairment charge of $4.0 million or $2.5 million after tax and $0.09 per diluted share.
