Such factors include risks associated with the economy, weather, public health and other factors affecting consumer spending (including negative changes in consumer confidence and other recessionary pressures), higher energy and security costs, the successful implementation of our growth strategy (including our ability to finance our expansion plans), the mix and pricing of goods sold, the effectiveness and profitability of new concepts, the market price of key raw materials (such as wood and cotton), seasonality, merchandise trends and changing consumer preferences, the effectiveness of our marketing programs (including compliance with relevant legal requirements), the availability of suitable lease sites for new stores, doing business on an international basis, the ability to source product from our global supplier base, legal and regulatory matters, pursuit of growth by acquisitions or other strategic opportunities and other competitive factors. The identified risk factors and other factors and risks that may affect our business or future financial results are detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including, but not limited to, those described under "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 2, 2013 and our subsequent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed through the date hereof. These cautionary statements qualify all of the forward looking statements we make herein. We cannot assure you that the results or developments anticipated by us will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that those results or developments will result in the expected consequences for us or affect us, our business or our operations in the way we expect. We caution you not to place undue reliance on these forward looking statements, which speak only as of their respective dates. Interim period sales are not necessarily indicative of sales expected for the full quarter.
