Diluted weighted average shares outstanding were 54,764,000 for Q2, a 16.1% increase versus 47,188,000 shares outstanding for Q2 LY, which reflects the 6.5 million shares issued March 7, 2008 in connection with the previously announced settlement with Genesco Inc.

We have maintained our focus on inventory quality while decreasing the overall levels by 10% per square foot. As a result, we continued to see higher product margins and a higher average selling price during the quarter. The Company's financial position remains strong as we ended the quarter with $65 million in cash, an improvement of $31 million year over year, and no interest-bearing debt."
