Cost Plus, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2011 Results And Provides Outlook For The First Quarter And Full Year Fiscal 2012

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This release references the non-GAAP financial measure of EBITDA. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measure allows management and investors to understand and compare the Company's operating results in a more consistent manner for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2011 and for the outlook amounts provided for the first quarter and full year of fiscal 2012. The non-GAAP measure presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The non-GAAP measure should be considered supplemental and not a substitute for the Company's financial results that are recorded in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for the periods presented.

The following table is a reconciliation of the Company’s net income from continuing operations to EBITDA from continuing operations for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2011 and 2010:
