Inventories were $70.9 million, compared with $60.5 million as of December 31, 2011. The increase in inventory was primarily due to increased production to support new product introductions and sales and store growth.

Net income in 2013 is expected to increase between 53% and 59%. Diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $0.82 to $0.86 per diluted share. This estimate assumes diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding of approximately 68.4 million.

Capital expenditures for fiscal 2013 are expected to be in the range of $21.0 million to $26.0 million.
