Steven R. Morgan, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer since February, commented, "We incurred significant one-time non-cash charges in the fourth quarter as we took actions to improve our business. The most significant charge was related to anticipated markdowns on aged products. These markdowns have been implemented, and will allow us the scope to liquidate these aged goods quicker as we move forward and ensure we have current, relevant merchandise for our customers. I am confident that we have identified, segregated, properly priced and positioned this product to provide a great value to our customers and to better position ourselves for new products in the remainder of the year."

Mr. Morgan continued, "This business has significant opportunity and a solid foundation is in place for its growth. The short term will be challenging as we focus on improving certain areas - specifically store presentation, refinement of craft business, and improvement to our replenishment process." Mr. Morgan concluded, "We are spending every minute capitalizing on these opportunities that will be key to our success and our ability to enhance the total customer experience. As a result, we believe we are well positioned to begin seeing significant improvement in the fall season."
