LJ International Reports Rising Retail Sales, Boosts Outlook For 2009 Fourth Quarter And Fiscal Year

Guidance Raised for Q409 and FY09

In light of its updated retail sales figures, LJI issued new revenue guidance for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009. It now projects combined wholesale and retail revenues of at least $39 million for the fourth quarter and at least $110 million for the fiscal year. This is up from earlier guidance, issued in November 2009, for quarterly and annual revenues of $30 million and $100 million. Based on these projections, revenues will be down approximately 6% and 19% year-over-year for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2009 respectively, with lower sales in LJI’s wholesale operations offsetting gains in its retail division.

The Company has also increased its guidance for earnings per fully diluted share at $0.09 for the fourth quarter of 2009 and $0.15 for the full year.
