Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements within the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements reflect Tumi’s current views with respect to, among other things, future events and performance. These statements may discuss net sales, gross margin, operating expenses, operating income, net income, cash flow, financial condition, impairments, expenditures, growth, strategies, plans, achievements, dividends, capital structure, organizational structure, future store openings, market opportunities, and general market and industry conditions. Tumi generally identifies forward-looking statements by words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “project,” “plan,” “predict,” “believe,” “seek,” “continue,” “outlook,” “may,” “might,” “will,” “should,” “can have,” “likely” or the negative version of these words or comparable words. Forward-looking statements are based on beliefs and assumptions made by management using currently available information. These statements are only predictions and are not guarantees of future performance, actions or events. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if management’s underlying beliefs and assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by a forward-looking statement. These risks and uncertainties include those set forth under “Risk Factors” in Tumi’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made. Tumi expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as net income plus dividend expense on mandatorily redeemable preferred stock and preferred equity interests. Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) is an important supplemental measure for Tumi’s internal reporting, including for its board of directors and management, and is a key measure used to evaluate profitability and operating performance. Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) provides investors and other users of Tumi’s financial information, when viewed in conjunction with its condensed consolidated financial statements, consistency and comparability with Tumi’s past financial performance, facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operating performance and facilitates comparisons with other companies. Tumi uses this metric in conjunction with GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance. Undue reliance should not be placed on this measure as Tumi’s only measure of operating performance. Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) should not be viewed as a substitute for net income.
