Explanatory Statement
 
Why we are filing this Amendment to our Form 10-K
 
We are filing this Amendment No. 1 to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended February 3, 2012, which we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 2, 2012 (the “10-K Report”), to correct a technical error that appeared in the original Interactive Data File included as Exhibit 101 to the 10-K Report.

In the detail tagging within the Interactive Data File of the Commitments and Contingencies footnote to the original filing, we are correcting the value associated with non-cancelable commitments due 2012 to $590 million as opposed to the $5 million reflected in the original tagging.

Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 of the Rules and Regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company has included with this Amendment No. 1 currently-dated certifications by the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as required by Exchange Act Rules 13a-14(a) and (b).

Except for Exhibit 101 submitted herewith and the currently-dated certifications, this Amendment No. 1 makes no other changes to the 10-K Report as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and posted on our web site on April 2, 2012. We have posted on our website a corrected version of the Interactive Data File included as Exhibit 101 to the 10-K Report.
