This announcement may contain forward-looking statements that are made
pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation
Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include, without limitation,
any statement that may predict, forecast, indicate or simply state future
results, performance or achievements, and can be identified by the use of
forward looking language such as "believe," "anticipate," "expect,"
"estimate," "intend," "plan," "project," "will be," "will continue," "will
result," "could," "may," "might," or any variations of such words with similar
meanings. Any such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that
could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in
forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause or contribute to such
differences include the resignation of the Company’s former independent
registered public accounting firm, and its withdrawal of its audit reports
with respect to certain of the Company’s historical financial statements,
international, national and local general economic, political and market
conditions including the ongoing global economic slowdown and market
instability; entry into the highly competitive performance footwear market;
sustaining, managing and forecasting costs and proper inventory levels; losing
any significant customers, decreased demand by industry retailers and
cancellation of order commitments due to the lack of popularity of particular
designs and/or categories of products; maintaining brand image and intense
competition among sellers of footwear for consumers; anticipating,
identifying, interpreting or forecasting changes in fashion trends, consumer
demand for the products and the various market factors described above; sales
levels during the spring, back-to-school and holiday selling seasons; and
other factors referenced or incorporated by reference in the Company’s annual
report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. The risks included
here are not exhaustive. The Company operates in a very competitive and
rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time and the
companies cannot predict all such risk factors, nor can the companies assess
the impact of all such risk factors on their respective businesses or the
extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual
results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking
statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, you should not place undue
reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results.
Moreover, reported results should not be considered an indication of future
