DESTINATION MATERNITY CORPORATION (DEST) filed Amended Annual Report for the period ended 2010-09-30.

Destination Maternity Corporation has a market cap of $259 million; its shares were traded at around $40.82 with a P/E ratio of 12.8 and P/S ratio of 0.5. DEST is in the portfolios of Michael Price of MFP Investors LLC, Jim Simons of Renaissance Technologies LLC.

Highlight of Business Operations:

The aggregate market value of the voting and non-voting common equity held by non-affiliates computed using $25.66, the price at which the common equity was last sold as of March 31, 2010 (the last business day of the Registrants most recently completed second fiscal quarter), was approximately $153,000,000.

Fiscal Year 2010 Bonuses: With respect to fiscal year 2010 bonuses for named executive officers under the Management Incentive Program, on December 22, 2009 the Committee established that the level of Adjusted EBITDA which would have yielded 100% of target bonus was $43.9 million and that the level of Adjusted EBITDA which would have yielded the maximum bonus payment (200% of target bonus) was $50.0 million. In November 2010, the Committee determined that the Companys Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal year 2010 was approximately $48.3 million (10.1% above the target level for Adjusted EBITDA and 24.7% above the Companys actual Adjusted EBITDA for the 2009 fiscal year of approximately $38.8 million). Based on the performance goals established by the Committee for fiscal year 2010, the Committee determined that the Companys Adjusted EBITDA for such fiscal year resulted in payment of 172.8% of target bonus under the Management Incentive Program. Pursuant to this determination the Committee determined that the following cash bonuses were payable to the following named executive officers of the Company under the Management Incentive Program: (a) Edward M. Krell, Chief Executive Officer & President: $1,123,200 (or 172.8% or Mr. Krells target bonus, which target bonus is equal to 100% of Mr. Krells fiscal year 2010 base salary of $650,000); (b) Judd P. Tirnauer, Senior Vice President & Chief Financial Officer: $286,416 (or 172.8% of Mr. Tirnauers target bonus, which target bonus is equal to 50% of Mr. Tirnauers fiscal year 2010 base salary of $331,500) and (c) Rebecca C. Matthias, former President & Chief Creative Officer: $757,429 (or 172.8% of Ms. Matthias target bonus, which target bonus was equal to 100% of the base salary of $438,327 actually paid to Ms. Matthias for fiscal year 2010). The Committee, with the advice of Mr. Krell, determined that Ms. Hendrickson would not be paid a bonus under the Management Incentive Program for fiscal year 2010, despite the achievement of the performance metric. However, the Committee did authorize the payment of a $216,884 bonus to Ms. Hendrickson in December 2010 in satisfaction of, and subject to the terms of, the special bonus opportunity granted to Ms. Hendrickson in November 2009 (see below description under Discretionary or Special Bonuses).

Fiscal Year 2011 Bonuses: With respect to fiscal year 2011 bonuses for named executive officers under the Management Incentive Program, on December 28, 2010 the Committee established that the level of Adjusted EBITDA which would yield 100% of target bonus is $59.3 million (a 22.7% increase from fiscal year 2010 Adjusted EBITDA) and that the level of Adjusted EBITDA which would yield the maximum bonus payment (200% of target bonus) is $66.0 million (a 36.5% increase from fiscal year 2010 Adjusted EBITDA).

$100,000 and for Mr. Tirnauer to earn a special cash bonus of $45,084. Each of Ms. Hendrickson and Mr. Tirnauer will be paid his or her respective special bonus on December 10, 2011 if he or she remains continuously employed by the Company through December 10, 2011. These special bonuses will in either case also be paid if the recipients employment is terminated by the Company without cause prior to December 10, 2011.
