Non-GAAP 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 Securities and Exchange Commission 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.
