AGGREGATE EQUITY COMPENSATION PLAN INFORMATION
The following table summarizes the equity compensation plans under which the Companys common stock may be issued as of January 28, 2006:
Set forth below is a line graph comparing the cumulative total stockholder returns for the Companys common stock over the last five years with the Standard & Poors 500 Index and the Standard & Poors Retail Composite Index. The comparison graph assumes that the value of the investment in the Companys common stock and the comparative indices was $100 on January 31, 2001 and measures the performance of this investment as of the last trading day in the month of January for each of the following five years. These measurement dates are based on the historical month-end data available and may vary slightly from the Companys actual fiscal year-end date for each period. Data with respect to returns for the Standard & Poors indices is not readily available for periods shorter than one month. The total return assumes the reinvestment of dividends at the frequency with which dividends are paid. The graph is a historical representation of past performance only and is not necessarily indicative of future returns to stockholders.
