Item 8.01 Other Events
Saks Incorporated and its subsidiaries (together the Company) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect certain accounting adjustments described below with respect to the financial information contained in the Companys Annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 31, 2009 or the 2008 Form 10-K, which was filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC), on March 23, 2009. This Current Report on Form 8-K shows the effects of the retrospective adoption on February 1, 2009 of the following:
In the 2008 Form 10-K, the Companys charter (Exhibit 3(i)) was incorporated by reference to an incorrect filing and, upon further investigation, the Company determined that it had inadvertently filed an incorrect copy of its charter on April 3, 2007 (which had inadvertently deleted certain 80% voting provisions that continue to be applicable) as an exhibit to its SEC filings. Accordingly, filed herewith and incorporated herein is the charter of the Company as of July 30, 2009. Except for an amendment in 2007 changing the principal address of the Company, there have been no amendments to the Companys charter since 1999.
The information in this Form 8-K does not reflect any event or development occurring after March 23, 2009, the date on which the Company filed its 2008 Form 10-K. Except as described above, the Company has not modified or updated any disclosures in the 2008 Form 10-K. This Current Report on Form 8-K should be read in conjunction with the Companys 2008 Form 10-K. For a discussion of events and developments subsequent to the filing of the Companys 2008 Form 10-K, please refer to the Companys SEC filings since that date.
