Julian R. Geiger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crumbs, said, “Our first quarter results were disappointing, but were essentially what we had envisioned. As we move through a transitional period, we are pleased with the progress we are making on our ‘six point’ strategic plan: creating an emotional connection with the customer; restructuring our organization; upgrading supply chain management; migrating to a coherent real estate strategy; building and maintaining a unique corporate culture; and controlling expenses. We believe that we are positioning ourselves for an improved financial performance in the second half of 2012 and beyond, by focusing on these initiatives.”
