We have our strongest line-up of new products ever for 2009, we continue to benefit from the many gross margin and operational initiatives we have implemented over the past three years, and we will continue to drive incremental gross margin savings as we embark on our next round of initiatives in 2009. Additionally, as we demonstrated in 2008, we will carefully manage our costs and inventories throughout the year and will take the necessary actions to maximize our financial results for our shareholders in whatever economic conditions persist."
