MANAGEMENT ANALYSIS OF TEXAS AND NON-TEXAS OPERATIONS

The Company is also providing a management analysis of its quarterly operating results for non-Texas and Texas operations and reconciliation to its GAAP consolidated results in Table 1 and Table 2 at the end of this release. The Company will report the results of its Texas operations on a consolidated basis with its non-Texas operations in accordance with GAAP in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2010.  Due to the Company’s previously announced plan to exit the Texas market, and the rescission of that decision by the Company’s Board of Directors on August 4, 2009, the Company believes it is meaningful for investors to review an analysis of its results of operations separately for non-Texas and Texas operations in addition to its consolidated results while the cost structure of its Texas operations is still materially different from the cost structure of its overall financial results.  The Company’s non-Texas operations comprise all of its operations in California, Arizona, and Nevada and generate approximately 91.9% of its retail sales revenue.  The analysis for Texas operations provided in Table 1 for the fourth quarter of both fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2009 and also in Table 2 for fiscal year 2010 and 2009, includes only revenues and expenses incurred directly in the Texas operations, with no allocation of costs incurred in the California distribution centers or corporate offices; these unallocated, indirect costs are not material to non-Texas results but may be material to Texas results.  During fiscal 2010, Texas stores were operated under unusual conditions, with 11 stores closed during the first quarter and one store closed in the second quarter, and thus the comparison of fiscal 2010 quarterly results to fiscal 2009 quarterly results is not indicative of future comparisons for the ongoing operation of the 32 stores that currently remain open.  The non-GAAP financial measures in Table 1 and Table 2 should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to, the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Fourth Quarter Management Analysis of Non-Texas Operations
 
Highlights for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 versus the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009:
 
 
§
Retail sales in the Company’s non-Texas retail operations increased by 4.3% to $302.1 million and same-store sales increased 2.3%
 
 
§
Non-Texas gross margin increased by 90 basis points to 40.8% of sales
 
 
§
Product cost decreased 10 basis points to 56.6%
 
 
§
Shrinkage decreased 20 basis points to 2.8%
 
 
§
Non-Texas operating expenses decreased 160 basis points to 31.4% of sales
 
 
§
Retail operating costs decreased 90 basis points
 
 
§
Distribution and transportation costs decreased 40 basis points
 
 
§
Corporate G&A costs decreased 80 basis points
 
 
§
Non-Texas operating income increased to $23.5 million, or 7.6% of sales, from $14.1 million, an increase in operating income of $9.4 million.
 
Gross profit for the Company’s non-Texas operations was $127.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, compared to $119.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009.  This equates to a gross profit margin of 40.8% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, a 90 basis points improvement from a gross profit margin of 39.9% in the comparable period last year.  This improvement primarily reflects a 10 basis points improvement in merchandise purchase cost, and a decrease of 20 basis points in shrinkage.  The Company believes that the improvement in gross margin is also due to a favorable product mix, and to new buying and merchandising initiatives that are focused on increasing sales of higher margin items.

Non-Texas operating expenses were $97.6 million, or 31.4% of sales, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 versus $98.6 million, or 33.0% of sales, in the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year.  The Company’s improved operating expense ratio is a result of across-the-board decreases in the components of operating expense.  This is a key objective in the Company’s long-term profit improvement plan.

A primary driver of this improvement is lower payroll-related expenses as a result of improvement in labor productivity and improved cost control methods resulting in lower utilities and supplies costs. Additionally, the Company’s distribution and transportation costs improved due to labor efficiencies, improved processing methods, lower fuel costs and improved trailer space utilization.  Further, corporate G&A costs were reduced due to the implementation of cost control measures and lower consulting fees, professional fees and legal costs.

Non-Texas operating income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 was $23.5 million, an operating margin of 7.6% of sales, compared to operating income of $14.1 million and an operating margin of 4.7% of sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009.  This represents an operating margin improvement of 290 basis points.

Fourth Quarter Analysis of Texas Operations

The Company’s Texas operations had retail sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 of $26.5 million, compared to $29.4 million for the same quarter last year. This 9.8% decrease in Texas sales was attributable to the Company closing approximately one third of its Texas stores beginning in the fourth quarter of last year.  Same-store sales in our Texas operations increased by 19.5% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.  The Company currently operates 32 Texas stores compared to 43 stores in the same quarter last year.

Gross profit for the Company’s Texas operations was $12.2 million, or 43.6% of sales, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, compared to $10.3 million, or 33.8% of sales, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009.  This 980 basis points increase was primarily due to a one-time reduction in shrink reserves of $1.8 million for Texas based on a shrink analysis performed at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. This is partially offset by an increase in merchandise purchase cost compared to the prior year.  The Company believes the closing of certain Texas stores over the past year and the anticipation and subsequent announcement of the Texas market exit plan in September 2008 contributed to an unusually high level of shrinkage of 7.3% of sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009.

Texas operating expenses were $10.7 million, or 38.2% of sales, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, versus $13.0 million, or 42.6% of sales, in the fourth quarter of the prior year.  Depreciation has been substantially reduced due to the permanent impairment of certain Texas assets in fiscal 2009, while additional lease termination costs of approximately $1.1 million increased operating costs in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.

Texas fourth quarter fiscal 2010 operating income was $0.9 million, compared to a $4.3 million loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009. The Company eliminated the costs and losses from 16 stores that were closed starting from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 through the second quarter of fiscal 2010.  The fourth quarter fiscal 2010 and 2009 operating income results include Texas lease termination costs of $1.1 million and $1.3 million, respectively, relating to the closing of some of the Company’s Texas stores.

CASH AND LIQUIDITY
 
As of the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company held $190.3 million in cash and short and long-term marketable securities, and had no debt.
 
SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM
 
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock.  At the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company had approximately $17.1 million available for potential future repurchases under its $30 million share repurchase program originally authorized in fiscal 2009.
 
OUTLOOK
 
For fiscal 2011 the Company expects positive same-store sales in the low single digits and plans to open approximately 5% more stores in its existing markets, primarily in the second half of the year.  The Company believes that revenue growth in fiscal 2011 will primarily result from new store openings and increases in same-store sales. With continued improvements anticipated from its profit improvement plan, the Company expects to increase its fiscal 2011 income before taxes to approximately 7.5% of sales, compared to 6.9% for fiscal 2010.

2010 ANNUAL SHAREHOLDER MEETING

The Company will hold its annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday, September 14, 2010.  Shareholders of record as of the close of business on July 19, 2010 will be eligible to vote at the annual meeting.  Further details about the annual meeting will be provided in the Company’s proxy materials, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in late July.
