Ethan Allen plans to close 12 retail stores

Ethan Allen Interiors Inc updates progress on the plan to consolidate the operations of about twelve of its company owned retail Design Centers and two Retail Service Centers during the March and June quarters which was announced on January 10, 2008, and comments on business for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2008, four Design Centers were converted to smaller size Design Studios better suited to the smaller markets they serve. In addition, seven Design Centers and two retail Service Centers were closed and, for the most part, were consolidated into other existing operations resulting in a total pretax restructuring charge of about $4.0 million or $2.5 million after tax and $0.09 per diluted share.

Regarding the business update for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, Mr. Kathwari, Chairman and CEO, commented, "We saw the impact of the weak economy on our sales during the March quarter. Our sales of $235.9 million were 4.3% lower than the previous year quarter and earnings per diluted share is expected to be $0.29 to $0.30 including restructuring charges and $0.38 to $0.39 excluding them."

Mr. Kathwari further commented, "As indicated in our January conference call, we have taken aggressive steps to convert and consolidate certain existing Design Centers as mentioned above. We have also relocated several existing Design Centers to prominent locations and have substantially completed the installation of the branded Lifestyle presentations in nearly all of the 153 Company operated Design Centers.
