The results for fiscal 2014 include costs of approximately $0.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for charges associated with the acquisition of Blue Tomato, and the results for fiscal 2013 include approximately $1.7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, of Blue Tomato acquisition related costs.

Total net sales for the six months (26 weeks) ended August 2, 2014 increased 10.9% to $339.6 million from $306.4 million reported for the six months (26 weeks) ended August 3, 2013.

At August 2, 2014, the Company had cash and current marketable securities of $113.4 million compared to cash and current marketable securities of $95.0 million at August 3, 2013.

Our ability to connect consumers with our unique assortment of brands drove higher than expected sales which allowed us to better leverage our expense. Our organization continues to get smarter and more efficient at executing our global omni-channel strategy and we believe there is still runway for added improvement in the years ahead."
