Jerome Griffith, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director, commented, “The strong start to 2012 builds on the positive momentum we have seen over the past two years as we execute on our strategic growth initiatives. Our recent results have been driven by our ability to successfully leverage Tumi’s iconic position in travel and business categories into the broader global premium lifestyle market. The combined performance of our core product lines and newer product extensions have fueled higher productivity in our retail and wholesale doors and helped to advance our growth into new markets. With just $330 million in annual sales in 2011 and 99 company-owned stores worldwide, we believe we have only just begun to harness the full potential of the brand. We enter the public company arena well positioned to capitalize on the many near- and long-term growth opportunities that lie ahead.”
