Brian P. Woolf, Body Central's CEO, stated: "While the Company had a tough sales year in 2012, many initiatives were undertaken to build the infrastructure to support continued growth. In addition to those steps taken in 2012, we are pleased to have announced earlier this week four very significant personnel additions to our merchandising team. We have much to accomplish and an urgency to improve the product offering. In addition, we will be focused on building the brand, improving our customers' shopping experience in our stores, and unifying our direct and store marketing to become a true multi-channel business. As we redesign our new store prototype in support of these initiatives, we will be modifying our 2013 new store opening target to 25 stores. Lastly, we expect current trends in our business to continue to be weak through the first half of this year with pressure on gross margins. Longer term, we are optimistic about our business model and the niche we can continue to develop in the fast fashion segment."
