Restoration Hardware Holdings, Inc. Reports Record First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

Gary Friedman, Chairman Emeritus, Creator and Curator commented, "Our continued industry leading performance is a reflection of our demonstrated ability to innovate, curate and integrate new products, businesses and experiences. Our Spring Collection, inclusive of our new catalogs, RH Tableware and RH Objects of Curiosity, is performing ahead of our plans. This Fall, we plan to launch two new catalogs, RH Leather and RH Rugs. The new catalogs will include expanded and dominant collections presented in a dramatic and innovative context. As previously announced, this Fall we will also launch RH Contemporary Art, post the Rain Room exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, with our inaugural exhibition ‘Autonomy’ with existing and newly commissioned artworks by the Rain Room creators, rAndom International, in our new art gallery in the Meatpacking-Chelsea Arts District. We will also launch our immersive new online Contemporary Art platform, as well as an Art Journal."

Mr. Friedman continued, "Also announced today, is our intent to launch two new businesses, RH Kitchen and Tableware and RH Antiquities. RH Kitchen and Tableware provides another logical opportunity for growth as we expand beyond our initial tableware offering and create a curated collection of kitchen furniture, appliances, lighting, cookware, tools, and food. RH Antiquities will provide an opportunity to fill current customer demand with a curated collection of antiques as we enter this $25 billion highly fragmented market. These new businesses will further enhance our brand position and provide meaningful long-term growth opportunities."
