Mecox Lane Limited Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

"Looking ahead, we remain steadfast in our strategy of lowering costs and improving efficiency in order to stay competitive in the apparel and accessories retail industry. With the formation of our new joint venture Giosis Mecoxlane, we will refocus on our core strength of providing fashionable, value-for-money branded apparel, as well as health and beauty and other products, to consumers across China. We will also continue to pursue multiple retail channels to increase sales, while also selling through the new website, redesigned as a brand-neutral online marketplace and operated by our joint venture. Although we expect this transitional period to present short-term challenges, we are confident our strategic refocusing will ultimately enhance Mecox Lane's brand recognition and deliver value to our shareholders."
