Mr. Miller continued, "Despite our fourth quarter sales being slightly below expectations, we are pleased to have further strengthened our balance sheet at the end of 2010, as our positive cash flow allowed us to further reduce borrowings under our credit facility by 12% to $48.3 million at year-end compared to the end of fiscal 2009. Our sound financial condition and anticipated continued healthy cash flow has enabled us to enhance shareholder value through the 50 percent dividend increase that we announced today. Although continued uncertainty in the economy and a lack of visibility as to the timing and degree of a recovery has made it difficult to predict consumer demand, we continue to believe that our proven business strategy will positively impact sales, earnings and cash flow, and over the long-term will deliver a solid performance for our shareholders."Quarterly Cash Dividend
