Delta Apparel Reports Another Year Of Record Results

In fiscal year 2012 the Company faces challenging market conditions as a result of the volatile cotton market, inflationary pressures and general economic conditions which continue to impact discretionary spending. Although the Company believes it has taken these risks, as well as other factors, into consideration in determining the guidance for fiscal year 2012, the significance of the challenges, many of which are outside of the Company’s control, creates heightened risk to the volatility of earnings in the upcoming fiscal year.

Mr. Humphreys concluded, “Over the past few years, through organic growth and acquisitions, we have built a strong portfolio of exciting brands. While we are currently operating in a macroeconomic environment that is not particularly conducive to consumer spending and could pose some near-term challenges, we believe our collection of brands provides Delta Apparel, Inc. with compelling long-term growth opportunities through further diversification of products and distribution channels. In addition, the strength of our balance sheet gives us the flexibility to continue to make prudent strategic investments for growth in the future. The recent increase in authorization for our Stock Repurchase Program also gives us the flexibility to invest in our own shares if we believe market conditions have caused our stock to be undervalued. We remain committed to building significant and sustained value for our shareholders.”
