Tom Kingsbury, Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are very pleased to report second quarter results that included a 9.7% increase in net sales, a 5.4% increase in comparable store sales and a 130 basis point expansion in Adjusted EBITDA margin. These results were driven by the continued improvement in the execution of our off-price operating model. Our consistently strong performance has also enabled us to take advantage of favorable interest rates resulting in the re-pricing of our term loan on July 29, 2016. We believe we are well positioned for the fall season and remain focused on delivering great value, relevant brands, fresh product and an improved store experience for our customers every day. I would like to thank our store and corporate teams for these results.”
