Commenting on the Company's sales results, Ann Taylor President & Chief Executive Officer Kay Krill stated, "Our results in June reflected another month of slow traffic, as well as continued softness at LOFT, although client acceptance of new LOFT deliveries has improved."

"At Ann Taylor, our professional wear-to-work, knit top and dress categories continued to show strength, with color and novelty items particularly strong, while neutrals were challenging. In addition, sweaters continued to be difficult, and we were somewhatmore promotional than we had planned at Ann Taylor in order to continue to maintain healthy inventory positions."
