The increase in inventory was primarily due to increased production to support new product introductions and store growth.

Outlook

For fiscal 2012, net sales are expected to be in the range of $395 million to $400 million. This estimate assumes a comparable store sales growth in the mid to high single digit range. Net income is expected to be in the range of $35.0 million to $37.0 million. Diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $0.53 to $0.56 per diluted share. This estimate assumes diluted weighted average common shares outstanding of approximately 63.3 million. Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash), a non-GAAP financial measure, which excludes non-cash dividend expense on mandatorily redeemable preferred stock and preferred equity interests, and assuming a normalized 39% tax rate, is expected to be in the range of $42.0 million to $44.0 million. On a diluted earnings per share basis, this represents a range of $0.66 to $0.69 per share. Excluding the aforementioned one-time special bonus expense of $3.1 million after tax, net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) is expected to be in the range of $45.0 million to $47.0 million. On a diluted earnings per share basis, this represents a range of $0.70 to $0.73 per share.

Capital expenditures for fiscal 2012 are expected to be in the range of $17.0 million to $20.0 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined as net income plus dividend expense on mandatorily redeemable preferred stock and preferred equity interests. Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) is an important supplemental measure for Tumi’s internal reporting, including for its board of directors and management, and is a key measure used to evaluate profitability and operating performance. Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) provides investors and other users of Tumi’s financial information, when viewed in conjunction with its condensed consolidated financial statements, consistency and comparability with Tumi’s past financial performance, facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operating performance and facilitates comparisons with other companies. Tumi uses this metric in conjunction with GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance. Undue reliance should not be placed on this measure as Tumi’s only measure of operating performance. Net income before preferred dividend expense (non-cash) should not be viewed as a substitute for net income.

Comparable Store Sales Growth

Comparable store sales are calculated based on Tumi’s company-owned stores that have been open for at least a full calendar year as of the end of Tumi’s annual reporting period. For example, a store opened in October 2011 will not impact the comparable store comparison until January 1, 2013.
