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.”
