Our business is currently part of Sara Lee and our assets and liabilities consist of those that Sara Lee attributes to its branded apparel business (excluding its European and U.K. operations, which have been sold by Sara Lee). The board of directors of Sara Lee has determined to separate its branded apparel business segment from its other business segments by means of a spin off. To accomplish the spin off, Sara Lee is distributing all of its equity interests in our company, consisting of all of the outstanding shares of our common stock, to Sara Lees stockholders on a pro rata basis. Following the spin off, Sara Lee will cease to own any equity interest in our company, and we will be an independent, publicly traded company. No vote of Sara Lees stockholders is required or being sought in connection with the spin off, and Sara Lees stockholders have no appraisal rights in connection with the spin off.
