Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Statements


This Current Report on Form 8-K, including any exhibits incorporated herein, may include statements that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Generally, the words “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “project,” “will” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature. The Company intends for all forward-looking statements contained herein or on its website, and all subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to it or persons acting on its behalf, to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and the provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (which Sections were adopted as part of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995). Important assumptions relating to these forward-looking statements include, among others, assumptions regarding the impact of economic conditions on consumer demand and spending, particularly in light of general economic uncertainty that continues to prevail, demand for the Company’s products, timing of shipments requested by the Company’s wholesale customers, expected pricing levels, competitive conditions, retention of and disciplined execution by key management, the timing and cost of store openings and of planned capital expenditures, costs of products as well as the raw materials used in those products, costs of labor, acquisition and disposition activities, expected outcomes of pending or potential litigation and regulatory actions, access to capital and/or credit markets and the impact of foreign losses on the Company’s effective tax rate. Forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s current expectations, based on currently available information, and are not guarantees of performance. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, these expectations could prove inaccurate as such statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond its ability to control or predict. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties, or other risks or uncertainties not currently known to the Company or that it currently deems to be immaterial, materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected. Important factors relating to these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those described in Part I, Item 1A. contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended February 2, 2013 under the heading “Risk Factors” and those described from time to time in its future reports filed with the SEC.
