Bob Higgins

Thank you, Sean. Good morning. On the call with me today is Mike Honeyman, our President and Chief Operating Officer, and John Sullivan, our Chief Financial Officer. Thank you for joining us as we discuss our third quarter results.

I’m pleased to announce that for the seventh consecutive quarter, we’ve driven improvement in our operating results. Our net loss for the third quarter improved $11.6 million to $4.5 million, a 72% improvement over last year. This followed a $17.4 million year-over-year improvement in the net loss for the first half. Year-to-date, we’ve improved our net loss by $29 million or 67%.

Total sales in the third quarter decreased 15% to $110 million as our average stores and operations declined 18%. I am very pleased to say that our comp store sales for the quarter were flat to last year.
