15.5% YoY during the quarter. Commenting on the results, Neill P. Davis, CEO
of Francesca's said, "While we posted high teens increases in second quarter
and year to date sales and earnings, our second quarter sales performance was
softer than we anticipated. We were able to maintain strong profitability with
operating income margins only modestly below the prior year levels. Our
performance in the quarter reflects the anniversary of very strong rates of
growth in the prior year; lower levels of customer traffic most evident in the
later part of the second quarter and the lack of a dominant apparel fashion
trend." In addition, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a $100
million share repurchase program to commence immediately. Commenting on the
authorization, Davis said, "The share repurchase authorization reflects
confidence in our growth plans as well as our commitment to return excess
capital to our shareholders thereby enhancing shareholder returns." The Full
