  • Net interest expense decreased to $0.3 million from $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.

  • Net income was $24.8 million compared to $19.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.

Thomas Vellios, Co-Founder, and CEO, stated: "Despite the adverse weather impact during the most important shopping weeks of the year, we are pleased to have ended the fourth quarter with improving trends.
