Fourth Quarter 2012 OutlookGiven some recent variability in sales trends and the importance of the upcoming holiday period to our quarterly results, we believe it is prudent to be slightly more cautious in our near-term outlook. Based on this, comparable store sales growth is assumed to be in the range of 1% to 3%, on top of a 4.9% comparable store sales increase in the fourth quarter of 2011. On a GAAP basis, and using the anticipated effective tax rate of 32.9%, GAAP net income for the fourth quarter is expected to be in the range of $9.3 million to $10.3 million, or $0.33 to $0.36 per diluted share, and assumes a diluted share count of 28.2 million shares, compared to 20.5 million diluted shares in the fourth quarter of last year. The Company’s 2012 fourth quarter includes one additional week compared to last year, and our 2012 fiscal year is a 53-week year compared to a 52-week fiscal 2011.
