(1) Fiscal 2012 fourth quarter and full-year results include a 53 rd week.


The accompanying press release dated March 20, 2013, contains non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP SG&A expenses, non-GAAP loss from continuing operations and non-GAAP loss from continuing operations per share for the fourth quarter and the four quarters of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively, and non-GAAP loss from continuing operations per share guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, differ from GAAP measures with the same names and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies. The Company computes non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and year to year. The Company may consider whether other significant items that arise in the future should be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. The Company has excluded the following items from all of its non-GAAP financial measures:
  • Store closure charges (gains)
  • Derivative liability
  • Valuation allowance

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operating results primarily because they exclude amounts that are not considered part of ongoing operating results when planning and forecasting and when assessing the performance of the organization, individual operating segments or its senior management. In addition, the Company believes that non-GAAP financial information is used by analysts and others in the investment community to analyze the Company's historical results and in providing estimates of future performance and that failure to report these non-GAAP measures, could result in confusion among analysts and others and create a misplaced perception that the Company's results have underperformed or exceeded expectations.
