In total, operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 were $24.7 million, or 40.0% of net sales, as compared to $23.4 million, or 38.8% of net sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. For the first six months of fiscal 2012, operating expenses were $48.9 million, or 41.6% of net sales, compared to $46.5 million, or 41.4% of net sales, in the first six months of fiscal 2011. The increase in operating expenses for the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2012 were driven by increased marketing and e-commerce related expense. In addition, as compared to last year, professional fees increased primarily due to a $450,000 legal fee reimbursement that positively impacted last year’s second quarter.
At June 30, 2012, cash and marketable securities totaled $24.4 million, as compared to $27.3 million in cash and marketable securities at July 2, 2011. Total inventory at cost increased 21.3% at quarter end from the prior year period.
