Fiscal 2016 Outlook

Based on these planning assumptions, which reflect actual results through the fiscal second quarter, the slight dilution anticipated from the Company’s purchase of One Kings Lane, Inc., and current business trends, the Company continues to model its fiscal 2016 net earnings per diluted share to be within the $4.50 to just over $5.00 range that it has earned over the past several years, during a heavy investment phase. This is the range of net earnings per diluted share that the Company described in its two previous earnings press releases.
