Jan '06
Leading Footwear Supplier R G Barry Corporation's President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Von Lehman will ring the opening bell at the American Stock Exchange at 9:30 am EST on Wednesday, January 18, 2006, to celebrate the company's recent listing.

"They are very pleased to be trading on the AMEX.

Their AMEX listing is a sign that their difficult two-year turnaround is nearing completion," Von Lehman said.

"Another indication should come in early March when they expect to report their first yearly profit since 2001.

Their focus has now moved from the turnaround to finding ways to profitably grow their business.

"They are bullish about the future," he said.

R G Barry, the Dearfoams company, is one of the world's leading suppliers of at home comfort footwear.

Its products are sold worldwide through traditional, promotional and national chain department stores, discount stores, warehouse clubs, supermarkets, and specialty catalogs.

The Dearfoams family of footwear includes Dearfoams and EZfeet slippers.
