"Our fiscal 2013 comparable store sales increased by 3.7%, representing the first annual increase in six years, and our net loss narrowed significantly. Both Team Sales Division and online, which are important growth areas for us, continued their momentum with double digit sales increases for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year."

"We are on track to roll out a number of new strategic initiatives this year, designed to reinforce the Sport Chalet brand as the retailer of choice for premium brands, first-to-market performance, technical and lifestyle merchandise, as well as best-in-class service from our 2,900 Experts. Many of our enhanced customer service programs are already underway, including our Order Today, Deliver Today service which brings Sport Chalet merchandise to our customers' doors that very same day and our expanded online assortment which offers our customers a much broader selection of bikes, fitness equipment, snow sports apparel and hardgoods shipped directly from our vendors. Finally, plans are on track for the opening of our next generation store format in downtown Los Angeles this summer. Our fiscal 2014 strategic plan includes several key initiatives aimed at generating strong sales growth and returning the company to sustained profitability, and we look forward to providing additional details in the coming months."
