Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
     On January 8, 2009, Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (the “Registrant”) issued a news release reporting net sales and comparable store sales for the five-week period ended January 3, 2009 and for the fiscal year-to-date. A copy of the January 8, 2009 news release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
     In the news release issued on January 8, 2009, the Registrant discussed the charge of approximately $10.0 million to tax expense that will be recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 (the fiscal year ending January 31, 2009) as a result of the execution of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer’s new employment agreement on December 19, 2008, which pursuant to Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code results in the exclusion of previously recognized tax benefits. Additionally, the Registrant noted that based on the impact of current sales trends on the profitability of a number of RUEHL and other stores, the Registrant expects that its fiscal year-end review of long-lived assets will result in a non-cash impairment charge in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. The Registrant also noted that as a result of the charge to tax expense and the expected non-cash impairment charge, the Registrant now anticipates that net income per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 will be significantly below the $1.00 to $1.05 per diluted share guidance previously issued.
     In connection with the January 8, 2009 news release, the Registrant made available by telephone a pre-recorded message addressing the Registrant’s net sales and comparable store sales for the five-week period ended January 3, 2009 as well as the other developments described in the preceding paragraph. To listen to this pre-recorded sales message, dial (800) 395-0662, or internationally, dial (402) 220-1262. A copy of the pre-recorded sales message transcript is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
