Mossimo Inc, a premier designer, licensor and distributor of men's, women's, boy's and girl's apparel, footwear and Mossimo Giannulli (Giannulli) deferred their planned tender offer for the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock to allow Giannulli and the Special Committee to consider an unsolicited proposal received from a third party indicating an interest in pursuing a business combination with the Company.
