Perfumania Holdings Inc. has a market cap of $88.3 million; its shares were traded at around $9.85 with and P/S ratio of 0.2. Perfumania Holdings Inc. had an annual average earning growth of 3.4% over the past 10 years.



Highlight of Business Operations:

Perfumania’s retail sales increased from $46.7 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2009 to $52.0 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 1, 2010. Perfumania’s comparable store sales increased by 7.4% during the thirteen weeks ended May 1, 2010. Comparable store sales measure sales from stores that have been open for one year or more. We exclude stores that are closed for renovation from comparable store sales from the month during which renovation commences until the first full month after reopening. The average retail price per unit sold during the thirteen weeks ended May 1, 2010 decreased 7% from the prior year’s comparable period while the total number of units sold increased by 19%. We attribute the

As a result of the covenant defaults described below, which were waived by Waiver and Amendment No. 1, effective January 23, 2009, GECC elected to impose the Default Rate of interest on outstanding borrowings, which is 2% higher than the interest rate otherwise applicable. The Company was also required to pay fees equal to 0.375% of the unused amount of the Senior Credit Facility and the outstanding amount of letters of credit under that facility. Under Waiver and Amendment No. 1, the

imposition of the Default Rate of interest was suspended and interest under the Senior Credit Facility for periods after May 26, 2009 will be, at the Company’s election unless an event of default exists, either (i) the highest of (A) The Wall Street Journal “prime rate,” (B) the federal funds rate plus .50% or (C) the sum of 3-month LIBOR plus 1.00%, (the “Index Rate”), in each case plus 3.50% or (ii) the applicable LIBOR rate (but not less than 2.00%) plus 4.50%. The Company is also now required to pay fees equal to 1.00% of the unused amount of the Senior Credit Facility and 4.50% of the outstanding amount of any letters of credit under that facility.

All obligations of the Company under the Senior Credit Facility and under any interest rate protection or other hedging arrangements entered into in connection with the Senior Credit Facility are secured by a first priority perfected security interest in all existing and after-acquired personal property and owned real property owned by the Company and its subsidiaries, which are co-borrowers or guarantors, including, without limitation, 100% (or, in the case of excluded foreign subsidiaries, 66%) of the outstanding equity interests in their subsidiaries.

On August 11, 2008, six estate planning trusts established by Glenn, Stephen and Arlene Nussdorf (the “Nussdorf Trusts”) loaned an aggregate of approximately $55 million to the Company on an unsecured basis. At the same time, we issued an unsecured subordinated promissory note in the principal amount of $35 million to Quality King. All of the subordinated promissory notes issued to the Nussdorf Trusts and Quality King are subordinated to the Senior Credit Facility and, pursuant to amendments as of May 26, 2009, no payments of principal or interest may be made before the maturity of the Senior Credit Facility on August 11, 2011. The maturity date of the subordinated promissory notes payable to the Nussdorf Trusts is February 8, 2012 and that of the note payable to Quality King is June 30, 2012. The Nussdorf Trusts notes bear interest at a rate equal to 2% over the rate in effect from time to time on the revolving loans under the Senior Credit Facility, and the Quality King note bears interest at a rate equal to 1% over the rate in effect from time to time on the revolving loans under the Senior Credit Facility. Quality King and the Nussdorf Trusts have acknowledged that the Company’s nonpayment, because of the subordination provisions, of amounts otherwise due under these notes will not constitute a default under the notes.

On December 9, 2004, E Com issued a Subordinated Convertible Note (the “Convertible Note”) to Glenn and Stephen Nussdorf in exchange for a $5 million subordinated secured demand loan made in March 2004. The Convertible Note was originally secured by E Com’s assets, but, in connection with the August 11, 2008 financing transactions, Glenn and Stephen Nussdorf released and terminated their security interest. The Convertible Note was originally payable in January 2007; however it was modified in January 2006 to extend the due date to January 2009. The Convertible Note is subordinate to all bank related indebtedness and, pursuant to a May 26, 2009 amendment, no payments of principal or interest may be made before the maturity of the Senior Credit Facility on August 11, 2011. As a result, the Convertible Note is currently in default, resulting in an increase of 2% in the nominal interest rate, which is the prime rate plus 1%. The Convertible Note allows Glenn and Stephen Nussdorf to convert any or all of the principal and accrued interest due on the Convertible Note into shares of the Company’s common stock. The conversion price was originally $11.25, which equaled the closing market price of E Com’s common stock on December 9, 2004, and was reduced to $7.00 by the May 26, 2009 amendment.
