Basics Segment Review
The basics segment had sales of $77.1 million for the quarter ended July 2, 2011, an increase of 6.5% compared to the prior year fourth quarter, driven by sales growth in catalog products, partially offset by declines in the private label programs. The revenue growth resulted from a 22.2% increase in average selling prices partially offset by lower unit sales. For the twelve months ended July 2, 2011, the basics segment had sales of $253.5 million, an 11.9% increase from sales of $226.6 million in the prior year driven from higher average selling prices offset by a slight decline in units sold.

This compares to operating income of $3.0 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year, and $2.9 million for fiscal year 2010.
