"2012 was a very solid year for PacSun with important progress in several key facets of our business. We achieved positive sales comps with better margins in every quarter for the first time since 2007, continued to leverage our cost base, and equally important is my belief that we are beginning to re-establish PacSun's unique identity tied to great brands, on trend merchandising and our distinct connection to California Lifestyle," said Gary H. Schoenfeld, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Looking ahead to this year our key priorities remain working closely with our key brands, attracting new customers and continuing to elevate both our in-store and on-line experience."
