For the six-months ended June 30, 2006, net income was $9.4 million or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to $17.2 million or $0.41 per share in the same prior-year period, a decrease of $7.8 million or $0.18 per diluted share. Year-to-date, for the period ended June 30, 2005, net income and diluted earnings per share for the prior-year six- month period, excluding the after-tax lease adjustment recorded in the first quarter of 2005 were $19.6 million and $0.47 per diluted share. On a pro- forma basis, adjusting for recognition of stock compensation expense, diluted earnings per share for the second quarter and six-month period ended June 30, 2006 were $0.08 and $0.25, respectively. Please see the attached table for reconciliation.
As previously reported, net sales for the second quarter of 2006 were $207.7 million, a decrease of 5.1% from $218.8 million for the second quarter last year. Comparable store sales for the second quarter of 2006 decreased 10.8%. For the six-month period ended June 30, 2006, sales were $395.4 million, down 2.2%, with a comparable store sales decrease of 7.9%, compared to $404.4 million for the same prior-year period.
"Our average ticket increased year-over-year, however, lower traffic in our stores as a result of well documented economic conditions impacted our comparables. Challenges remain in the near term, but we believe our product offerings are well positioned for the last six-months of the year," said Kathleen Mason, President and Chief Executive Officer.
Our full year 2006 guidance estimates annual sales of approximately $945 million, mid-single digit negative comparable stores sales and diluted earnings per share of approximately $1.05 inclusive of an estimated $0.04 - $0.05 per diluted share of stock compensation expense.
Tuesday Morning management will review second quarter financial results in a teleconference call on July 25, 2006 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Pro-forma net income per share should not be considered as an alternative to net income per share or other GAAP financial measurements as an indicator of our operating performance. The GAAP rent adjustment represents a one-time, non-cash cumulative adjustment to record GAAP rent in the first quarter of 2005 to properly reflect pre-opening or build-out periods of our stores prior to January 1, 2005. This correction of accounting practices was made in light of the views of the Office of the Chief Accountant of the expressed in a letter of February 7, 2005 to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants regarding the application of generally accepted accounting principles to operating lease accounting matters. The Company adopted FAS 123(R), Shared Based Payment, in the first quarter of fiscal 2006. This accounting standard requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the financial statements based on their fair value over the requisite service period. The Company has applied the provisions of the modified prospective transition method in the first quarter of 2006. The Company did not record any stock-based compensation expense in 2005. Management believes that comparative analysis of operating trends is enhanced by adjusting for these items in order to provide investors with a view of the Company's operating performance in a manner similar to the method used by management to track performance from period-to-period and improve the investor's ability to understand underlying trends in the Company's operations. Because the GAAP rent adjustment is a one-time adjustment, it is not indicative of operating performance for the applicable period, nor should it be used in developing trend analysis for future periods. Because stock compensation expense was not recorded in 2005, excluding the impact of stock compensation expense in the current year provides enhanced comparability to the prior year.
