Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are pleased with the progress we have made during the fiscal year. We are gratified with our superior financial performance in a very challenging economic environment. More importantly, we have undertaken numerous initiatives to position us for growth as an interior design based enterprise.

In our Retail Division, initiatives include the implementation of the design team concept, the conversion of twelve design centers to design studios, the restructuring of the retail design service center network, closing of twelve Retail Division design centers in underperforming markets, and opening of a record number of eighteen new design centers, including relocations.

In other areas of our vertically integrated structure, we have improved our product offerings; launched a major national and regional advertising campaign relating to our interior design services; made major improvements to our information systems including development of a new website, and strengthened our manufacturing and logistics base."

Commenting on the outlook for fiscal 2009, Mr. Kathwari stated, "In these challenging times it makes sense to be prepared for further softening of the economy and also be ready for the next upturn. The initiatives we have taken position us well. As far as our financial performance is concerned, we expect to continue to do relatively well".
