Tilly’s, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results *Second Quarter Net Sales Increased 17.1%; Comp Store Sales Decreased 0.5% *Second Quarter EPS of $0.15 *Maintains Full Year 2013 Outlook *Announces Appointment of New CFO Business Wire IRVINE, Calif. -- August 28, 2013 Tilly’s, Inc. (NYSE:TLYS) today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended August 3, 2013. “Our unique offering of the most sought-after brands coupled with disciplined adherence to our pricing strategy led to quality earnings that were above our expectations. During the quarter we grew net sales, expanded gross margin, and increased net income compared to the prior year quarter on a comparable basis,” commented Daniel Griesemer, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are encouraged by our customers’ positive response to date to our back-to-school merchandise, which reaffirms the continued relevance of our assortment and the Tilly’s concept during this important shopping period. We believe our inventory is well positioned to drive sales in our stores and on our website.” For the second quarter ended August 3, 2013: *Total net sales were $123 million, an increase of 17.1% compared to the second quarter of 2012. This included incremental sales that shifted into the second quarter from the third quarter when compared to the 2012 fiscal calendar. *Comparable store sales, which include e-commerce sales, decreased 0.5% compared to the second quarter of 2012. E-commerce sales were $12.8 million, an increase of 30% compared to the second quarter of 2012. *Gross profit increased 22.5% to $38.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2012. Gross margin was 31.0%, a 140 basis point increase over the second quarter of 2012. *Operating income was $7.2 million. This compares to a GAAP operating loss of $(3.3) million in the second quarter of 2012, during which the Company recognized a one-time non-cash SG&A charge of $7.6 million, before tax, related to stock-based compensation expense triggered by the company’s initial public offering. *Net income was $4.3 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, based on a weighted average diluted share count of 28.1 million shares. This compares to a GAAP net loss in the second quarter of 2012 of $(1.2) million, or $(0.04) per share, based on a weighted average share count of 27.3 million shares. Excluding the non-cash SG&A charge and applying the expected long-term effective tax rate of 40% as a “C” corporation, adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2012 was $2.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. *At the conclusion of this press release is a reconciliation of non-GAAP results to GAAP results. For the twenty-six weeks ended August 3, 2013: *Total net sales were $232.2 million, an increase of 15.1% compared to the first two quarters of the prior year. *Comparable store sales, which include e-commerce sales, increased 0.2% compared to the first two quarters of 2012. E-commerce sales were $25.4 million, an increase of 22% compared to the first two quarters of 2012. *Gross profit increased 14.3% to $70.4 million. Gross margin was 30.3%, slightly lower than the prior year period. *Operating income was $11.1 million. This compares to a GAAP operating income of $2.7 million in the first two quarters of 2012, during which the Company recognized a one-time non-cash SG&A charge of $7.6 million, before tax, related to stock–based compensation expense triggered by the company’s initial public offering. *Net income was $6.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, based on a weighted average diluted share count of 28.1 million shares. This compares to a GAAP net income in the first two quarters of 2012 of $4.8 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, based on a weighted average diluted share count of 24.1 million shares. Adjusting for non-cash stock-based compensation charges and applying the expected long-term effective tax rate of 40% as a “C” corporation, adjusted net income was $5.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the first two quarters of 2012. *At the conclusion of this press release is a reconciliation of non-GAAP results to GAAP results. Balance Sheet and Liquidity As of August 3, 2013, the Company had $50.8 million of cash and marketable securities and no borrowings or debt outstanding on its revolving credit facility. Third Quarter 2013 Outlook We expect comparable store sales to be flat compared to a 1.9% comparable store sales increase in the third quarter of 2012. Using an anticipated effective tax rate of 40%, net income for the third quarter is expected to be in the range of $5.4 million to $6.3 million, or $0.19 to $0.22 per diluted share, and assumes a weighted average diluted share count of 28.3 million shares, compared to 28.1 million weighted average diluted shares in the third quarter of last year. Third quarter 2012 adjusted net income was $8.3 million, which includes a 40% effective tax rate to make that quarter comparable. (See reconciliation of non-GAAP results to GAAP results at the end of this release.) Fiscal Year 2013 Outlook The Company continues to expect comparable store sales growth in the low-single digit range for fiscal 2013, on a 52-week vs. 52-week basis. Using an anticipated full year effective tax rate of 40%, net income for fiscal year 2013 is expected to be in the range of $21.5 million to $23.3 million, or $0.76 to $0.82 per diluted share, and assumes a weighted average diluted share count of 28.2 million shares, compared to 26.1 million weighted average diluted shares for the full year 2012. Full year 2012 adjusted net income was $22.9 million, which includes four quarters of ongoing stock-based compensation expense totaling $2.7 million and a 40% effective tax rate for the entire year, and excludes the one-time SG&A charge and the one-time tax benefit resulting from the conversion to a “C” corporation described above. (See reconciliation of non-GAAP results to GAAP results at the end of this release.)

Non-GAAP Financial Measures In addition to reporting financial measures in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures including “adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses”, “adjusted operating income”, “adjusted income before income taxes”, “adjusted income tax provision”, “adjusted net income”, “adjusted basic earnings per share” and “adjusted diluted earnings per share”. These amounts are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. The Company’s management believes that these measures provide investors with transparency by helping illustrate the financial results: (i) as if the Company had been a publicly traded “C” Corporation during the relevant time periods, in order to provide a better comparison of past periods to current periods as a “C” Corporation; and (ii) to exclude items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, the Company’s core operating results, providing a better baseline for analyzing trends in the underlying business. For a description of these non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, please see the accompanying table titled "Supplemental Information - Consolidated Statements of Income; Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to GAAP Financial Measures” contained in this press release.

Q2 2012 Q2 2012 YTD (quarter ended July 28, 2012) (six months ended July 28, 2012) Reported Adjustments Adjusted Reported Adjustments Adjusted (GAAP) (GAAP) Selling, general and (1) 34,462 (7,615 ) 26,847 58,854 (6,915 ) 51,939 administrative expenses Operating (3,318 ) 7,615 4,297 2,708 6,915 9,623 income Income before (3,278 ) 7,615 4,337 2,704 6,915 9,619 income taxes Income tax (2) (2,122 ) 3,857 1,735 (2,053 ) 5,902 3,848 provision Net income ($1,156 ) $ 3,759 $ 2,602 $ 4,757 $ 1,014 $ 5,771 Basic earnings ($0.04 ) $ 0.14 $ 0.10 $ 0.20 $ 0.04 $ 0.24 per share Diluted earnings per ($0.04 ) $ 0.13 $ 0.09 $ 0.20 $ 0.04 $ 0.24 share Diluted shares (3) 27,280 403 27,683 24,097 - 24,097 outstanding Notes: (1) Adjustment to fiscal year 2012 second quarter SG&A expenses reflects exclusion of a $7.615 million charge for life-to-date stock-based compensation expense covering periods up to the May 2012 IPO date. Adjustment to six months ended July 28, 2012 SG&A expenses also reflects adding a charge for on-going stock-based compensation expense for the first quarter similar to the charge in the other three quarters of fiscal year 2012. These on-going charges commenced following the Company's IPO at the beginning of the second quarter of fiscal 2012. (2) The tax provision rate for fiscal year 2012 is adjusted to the expected long-term effective tax rate of 40% as a "C" corporation. The GAAP tax provision rate in 2012 reflected the Company being taxed as an "S" corporation until early in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 when it began being taxed as a "C" corporation. (3) Due to a GAAP net loss in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 there was no dilution of the basic shares outstanding. As a result of the adjustments described in notes 1 and 2 above, there was adjusted net income (rather than a GAAP net loss) for the fiscal 2012 second quarter and therefore incremental shares to calculate diluted earnings per share. No adjustment was made to the reported diluted shares outstanding for the six month period ended July 28, 2012. Q3 2012 Full Year 2012 (quarter ended October 27, 2012) (53 week year ended February 2, 2013) Reported Adjustments Adjusted Reported Adjustments Adjusted (GAAP) (GAAP) Selling, general and (1) 27,940 - 27,940 118,805 (6,915 ) 111,890 administrative expenses Operating 13,868 - 13,868 31,390 6,915 38,305 income Income before 13,826 - 13,826 31,299 6,915 38,214 income taxes Income tax (2) 4,532 998 5,530 7,406 7,880 15,286 provision Net income $ 9,294 ($998 ) $ 8,296 $ 23,893 ($965 ) $ 22,928 Basic earnings $ 0.34 ($0.04 ) $ 0.30 $ 0.93 ($0.04 ) $ 0.89 per share Diluted earnings per $ 0.33 ($0.04 ) $ 0.30 $ 0.92 ($0.04 ) $ 0.88 share Notes: (1) Adjustment to full year 2012 SG&A expenses excludes the life-to-date charge in the second quarter but adds a charge of $0.7 million in the first quarter, similar to the on-going charges for stock-based compensation expense in the other three quarters of 2012. The result of these adjustments to 2012 is to reflect only an on-going stock-based compensation expense for all quarters of the year. (2) The tax provision in the third quarter and full year 2012 is adjusted to the expected long-term effective tax rate of 40% as a "C" corporation. The GAAP tax provision rate in 2012 reflected the Company being taxed as an "S" corporation for a portion of the year, after which it was taxed as a "C" corporation. Tilly's, Inc.
