Highlight of Business Operations:
Consolidated net sales for the fiscal 2011 first quarter were $143,533,000 compared to $124,977,000 for the fiscal 2010 first quarter, which represents a 15% increase. We reported an operating loss of $630,000 and a net loss of $28,930,000 for the fiscal 2011 first quarter, primarily attributed to a one-time $25,679,000 debt extinguishment charge recorded in the first quarter resulting from the full redemption of our Series B preferred stock obligation. We reported an operating loss of $9,139,000 and a net loss
Total operating expenses for the fiscal 2011 first quarter were $54,022,000 compared to $54,876,000 for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of 1.6%. Distribution and selling expense increased $434,000, or 1%, to $46,476,000, or 32% of net sales during the fiscal 2011 first quarter compared to $46,042,000 or 37% of net sales for the comparable prior year fiscal quarter. Distribution and selling expense increased over the prior year's fiscal quarter primarily due to increased credit card fees and bad debt expense totaling $697,000, each as a result of the overall increase in net sales and order transactions over prior year. The increase over the prior year's fiscal quarter was also due to increased bonus accrual of $594,000 and increased restricted stock expense of $86,000. The distribution and selling expense increases during the year were offset by: decreases in customer service and telemarketing expense of $428,000 resulting primarily from efficiencies gained in the areas of increased order process automation as well as reductions achieved in our average talk time for both order capture and customer service and decreases in advertising and promotion expense of $518,000.

Net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 includes a $25.7 million charge related to the early preferred stock debt extinguishment and interest expense of $2,602,000, relating primarily to accrued interest and debt discount amortization on our Series B Preferred Stock, bank term loan interest expense and the amortization of fees paid to obtain our bank credit facilities. Net loss available to common shareholders for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 includes interest expense of $1,850,000 relating primarily to interest on our Series B Preferred Stock, bank fee amortization, and interest income totaling $42,000 earned on our cash and investments.
