First Quarter 2014 Outlook

We continue to experience volatile and weak traffic trends and a highly promotional environment in teen retail. If these trends continue, we would expect first quarter comparable store sales to decline in the mid single digits, and net income per diluted share to be in the range of $0.00 to $0.04. This assumes an anticipated effective tax rate of 40% and a weighted average diluted share count of 28.2 million shares. First quarter 2013 net income was $2.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, based on a weighted average diluted share count of 28.0 million shares
