• Gross profit margin was 49.2% as compared to 46.2% in the first quarter of 2009.

• Operating profit margin was 20.6% as compared to 14.6% in the first quarter of 2009. The increase was driven by improved gross profit margin and operating expense leverage driven by higher sales.
• The Company generated $23.3 million of operating cash flow in the first quarter of 2010.

Chief Executive Officer Mark Sarvary commented, "We are very pleased with our first quarter results - we have increased sales and grown our market share while improving both our gross and operating margins. Our investments in marketing and research and development are driving our sales momentum and we believe they will continue to do so in the future."

Current Share Repurchase Authorization Completed and New Authorization Announced

During the first quarter of 2010, the Company purchased 3.7 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $27.07 for a total cost of $100.0 million.

The Company announced that the Board of Directors has authorized a new share repurchase program of up to an incremental $100.0 million. Stock repurchases under this program may be made through open market transactions, negotiated purchases or otherwise, at times and in such amounts as management and a committee of the Board deem appropriate. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, financing and regulatory requirements and other market conditions. Repurchases may also be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit shares to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws. This share repurchase program replaces the Company's prior share repurchase authorization, and may be limited, suspended or terminated at any time without prior notice.
