Bruce M. Cazenave said, "During the second quarter, we continued to achieve
growth in our Direct business and made a couple of strategic investment
decisions to build support for the back half of the year and support longer
term growth objectives. We made incremental investments in media for Direct
products to establish the sales lead pipeline and also invested in launch
activities in support of our new licensing initiative, which we believe will
develop into a meaningful revenue source over the long term. As previously
disclosed, we expected the second quarter for our Retail business to be a
challenge from a year-over-year comparison point of view. Our Retail business
in the second quarter last year benefited from customers accelerating their
normal buying pattern from the third and fourth quarters in anticipation of
the price increase implemented in the third quarter last year. The price
increase was a positive factor in our improving gross margins." The Full
