New York & Company, Inc. Announces Significantly Improved Second Quarter 2012 Operating Results

The Company anticipates total inventory levels at the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 to be down by a low single digit percentage versus the prior year reflecting continued reductions in product costs. The retail value of on-hand inventory per average store is expected to be approximately flat.

While the Company expects to utilize its credit facility for certain seasonal working capital needs, it expects to end the year with no borrowings under its credit facility and no long-term debt.

Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $8.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, as compared to $3.5 million in the prior year. Depreciation expense for the period is estimated at $9.0 million.

The Company expects to open two new Outlet stores, remodel six existing locations and close one store, ending the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 with 538 stores, including 43 Outlet stores.

The Company expects to report its third quarter fiscal year 2012 results during the last week of November, following the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
