ANN INC. (the Company) issued a Press Release, dated March 9, 2012. A copy of the Press Release is appended to this report as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The Press Release furnished with this report contains certain non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company is providing operating income, net income and earnings per share data for the quarter and year ended January 28, 2012 that exclude previously announced management realignment charges; and for the quarter and year ended January 29, 2011 that exclude costs associated with the Companys previously-announced restructuring program. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures assist the readers understanding of its continuing business operations by removing the impact of these charges. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
