The improved results for 1991 reflect gains in gross margins and operating economies achieved during the year. The per share data also reflect a reduction in average shares outstanding to 4,064,000 in 1991 from 4,192,000 in 1990 as a result of open market repurchases by the company.
Net income for the fourth quarter of 1991 was $216,000 or $.05 per share on net sales of $16,850,000 compared to a net loss of ($1,515,000) or ($.36) per share on sales of $18,525,000 for the fourth quarter of 1990.

These factors are expected to contribute to further gains in 1992, with current bookings for this year's spring and fall seasons already indicating substantial growth over prior year levels.
