Operating income for the fourth quarter of 2011 included $374,000 of other charges, or $0.02 per diluted share. Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 included $10.5 million of other charges, or $0.51 per diluted share;

  • Adjusted net income for the 13-week period in fiscal 2011 was $1.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, excluding tax valuation allowance reversal, store impairment charges and gain on note payable settlement, as compared to adjusted net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 of $2.0 million or ($0.16) per diluted share excluding impairment charges, other legal expenses and the tax valuation allowance described above.

Thomas Reinckens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The fourth quarter represented a strong finish to a positive year of growth for Cache. The year included an 8.1% increase in comparable store sales, a 490 basis point expansion in gross profit margin and solid profitability reflecting the strong acceptance of our assortments and the success of the process changes we began to implement in 2010. We are very proud of our performance this year and believe we have developed a strong foundation to continue our positive momentum in fiscal 2012 and beyond.”
