Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

GameStop Corp. (together with its predecessor companies, “GameStop,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, is the world’s largest multichannel video game retailer. The Company sells new and used video game hardware, physical and digital video game software, accessories, as well as PC entertainment software and other merchandise. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included herein reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal, recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of the Company’s management, necessary for a fair presentation of the information for the periods presented. These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all disclosures required under GAAP for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the 52 weeks ended January 28, 2012 (“fiscal 2011”). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. In preparing these financial statements, management has made its best estimates and judgments of certain amounts included in the financial statements, giving due consideration to materiality. Changes in the estimates and assumptions used by management could have significant impact on the Company’s financial results. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Due to the seasonal nature of the business, the results of operations for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 are not indicative of the results to be expected for the 53 weeks ending February 2, 2013 (“fiscal 2012”).

Certain reclassifications have been made to conform the prior period data to the current interim period presentation.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, we adopted the accounting standard update regarding the presentation of comprehensive income. This accounting standard update was issued to increase the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income. The accounting standard update requires that all non-owner changes in stockholders’ equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate, but consecutive statements. In connection with the adoption of this accounting standard update, our condensed consolidated financial statements now include separate statements of comprehensive income.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, we adopted the accounting standard update regarding fair value measurement and disclosure. This accounting standard update was issued to provide a consistent definition of fair value and ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. This accounting standard update also changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances the disclosure requirements particularly for Level 3 fair value measurements. The adoption of this accounting standard update did not have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation

For options granted, the Company records share-based compensation expense in earnings based on the grant-date fair value. The fair value of each option grant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. This valuation model requires the use of subjective assumptions, including expected option life, expected volatility and expected employee forfeiture rate. The Company uses historical data to estimate the option life and the employee forfeiture rate, and uses historical volatility when estimating the stock price volatility. There were no stock options granted during the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011.

In the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, the Company included compensation expense relating to stock option grants of $0.7 million and $1.6 million, respectively, in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of April 28, 2012, the unrecognized compensation expense related to the unvested portion of our stock options was $2.1 million, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 0.8 years. The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011 was $0.4 million and $7.6 million, respectively.

During the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012, 1,396,000 shares of restricted stock were granted with a fair value of $23.73 per common share. Of these shares, 769,800 vest in equal annual installments over three years and 626,200 shares are subject to performance measures. Of the performance related restricted shares granted, 125,700 vest in equal annual installments over three years subject to performance targets based on fiscal 2012 operating results. The remaining 500,500 shares of performance based restricted shares granted are subject to performance targets which will be measured following the completion of the 52 weeks ending January 31, 2015. These grants will vest immediately upon measurement to the extent earned. During the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011, 448,000 shares of restricted stock were granted with a fair market value of $20.85 per share. Of these shares, 367,500 vest in equal annual installments over three years subject to continued service to the Company and 80,500, to the extent earned, vest over three years subject to performance targets based on fiscal 2011 operating results. Based on actual fiscal 2011 operating results, only 76,500 of the performance-based shares were earned. During the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, the Company included compensation expense relating to the restricted share grants in the amount of $4.3 million and $3.3 million, respectively, in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of April 28, 2012, there was $38.9 million of unrecognized compensation expense related to nonvested restricted stock awards that is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.5 years.

Fair Value Measurements and Financial Instruments

Recurring Fair Value Measurements and Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value accounting guidance applies to our forward exchange contracts, foreign currency options and cross-currency swaps (together, the “Foreign Currency Contracts”), Company-owned life insurance policies with a cash surrender value and certain nonqualified deferred compensation liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis in periods subsequent to initial recognition.

Fair value accounting guidance requires disclosures that categorize assets and liabilities measured at fair value into one of three different levels depending on the observability of the inputs employed in the measurement. Level 1 inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 inputs are observable inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market-corroborated inputs. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability reflecting our assumptions about pricing by market participants.

We value our Foreign Currency Contracts, Company-owned life insurance policies with cash surrender values and certain nonqualified deferred compensation liabilities based on Level 2 inputs using quotations provided by major market news services, such as Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal, and industry-standard

models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices, time value, volatility factors, and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. When appropriate, valuations are adjusted to reflect credit considerations, generally based on available market evidence.

The Company uses Foreign Currency Contracts to manage currency risk primarily related to intercompany loans denominated in non-functional currencies and certain foreign currency assets and liabilities. These Foreign Currency Contracts are not designated as hedges and, therefore, changes in the fair values of these derivatives are recognized in earnings, thereby offsetting the current earnings effect of the re-measurement of related intercompany loans and foreign currency assets and liabilities. The total gross notional value of derivatives related to our Foreign Currency Contracts was $447.9 million and $486.5 million as of April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, respectively. The total net notional value of derivatives related to our Foreign Currency Contracts was $206.5 million and $177.9 million as of April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, respectively.

Activity related to the trading of derivative instruments and the offsetting impact of related intercompany loans and foreign currency assets and liabilities recognized in selling, general and administrative expense is as follows (in millions):

We do not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes. We are exposed to counterparty credit risk on all of our derivative financial instruments and cash equivalent investments. The Company manages counterparty risk according to the guidelines and controls established under comprehensive risk management and investment policies. We continuously monitor our counterparty credit risk and utilize a number of different counterparties to minimize our exposure to potential defaults. We do not require collateral under derivative or investment agreements.

Nonrecurring Fair Value Measurements

In addition to assets and liabilities that are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis, the Company records assets and liabilities at fair value on a nonrecurring basis as required by GAAP. Generally, assets are recorded at fair value on a nonrecurring basis as a result of impairment charges. The Company did not record any significant impairment charges related to assets measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis during the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011.

Other Fair Value Disclosures

The Company’s carrying value of financial instruments such as cash and cash equivalents, receivables, net and accounts payable approximates their fair value, except for differences with respect to the Company’s senior notes that were outstanding until December 2011. The fair value of the senior notes payable in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of April 30, 2011 was estimated using Level 2 inputs based on quoted prices for those instruments. As of April 28, 2012, there were no senior notes outstanding. As of April 30, 2011, the senior notes payable had a carrying value of $249.2 million and a fair value of $254.7 million.

Restructuring Initiative

During fiscal 2011, the Company announced a restructuring initiative related to the exit of certain markets in Europe and the closure of under-performing stores in the international segments, as well as the consolidation of European home office sites and back-office functions affecting our northern Europe and Spain operations. These restructuring charges were a result of management’s plan to rationalize the international store base and improve profitability.

The following table summarizes the balance of accrued expenses related to the restructuring initiative and the changes in the accrued expenses as of and for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 (in millions):

Debt

On January 4, 2011, the Company entered into a $400 million credit agreement (the “Revolver”), which amended and restated, in its entirety, the Company’s prior credit agreement entered into in October 2005 (the “Credit Agreement”). The Revolver provides for a five-year, $400 million asset-based facility, including a $50 million letter of credit sublimit, secured by substantially all of the Company’s and its domestic subsidiaries’ assets. The Company has the ability to increase the facility, which matures in January 2016, by $150 million under certain circumstances. The extension of the Revolver to 2016 reduces our exposure to potential tightening in the credit markets.

The availability under the Revolver is limited to a borrowing base which allows the Company to borrow up to 90% of the appraisal value of the inventory, in each case plus 90% of eligible credit card receivables, net of certain reserves. Letters of credit reduce the amount available to borrow by their face value. The Company’s ability to pay cash dividends, redeem options and repurchase shares is generally permitted, except under certain circumstances, including if Revolver excess availability is less than 20%, or is projected to be within 12 months after such payment. In addition, if Revolver usage is projected to be equal to or greater than 25% of the borrowing base during the prospective 12-month period, the Company is subject to meeting a fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.1:1.0 prior to making such payments. In the event that excess availability under the Revolver is at any time less than the greater of (1) $40.0 million or (2) 12.5% of the lesser of the total commitment or the borrowing base, the Company will be subject to a fixed charge coverage ratio covenant of 1.1:1.0.

The Revolver places certain restrictions on the Company and its subsidiaries, including limitations on asset sales, additional liens, investments, loans, guarantees, acquisitions and the incurrence of additional indebtedness. Absent consent from its lenders, the Company may not incur more than $750 million of additional unsecured indebtedness to be limited to $250 million in general unsecured obligations and $500 million in unsecured obligations to finance acquisitions valued at $500 million or more. The per annum interest rate under the Revolver is variable and is calculated by applying a margin (1) for prime rate loans of 1.25% to 1.50% above the highest of (a) the prime rate of the administrative agent, (b) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50% and (c) the London Interbank Offered (“LIBO”) rate for a 30-day interest period as determined on such day plus 1.00%, and (2) for LIBO rate loans of 2.25% to 2.50% above the LIBO rate. The applicable margin is determined quarterly as a function of the Company’s average daily excess availability under the facility. In addition, the Company is required to pay a commitment fee of 0.375% or 0.50%, depending on facility usage, for any unused portion of the total commitment under the Revolver. As of April 28, 2012, the applicable margin was 1.25% for prime rate loans and 2.25% for LIBO rate loans, while the required commitment fee was 0.50% for the unused portion of the Revolver.

The Revolver provides for customary events of default with corresponding grace periods, including failure to pay any principal or interest when due, failure to comply with covenants, any material representation or warranty made by the Company or the borrowers proving to be false in any material respect, certain bankruptcy, insolvency or receivership events affecting the Company or its subsidiaries, defaults relating to certain other indebtedness, imposition of certain judgments and mergers or the liquidation of the Company or certain of its subsidiaries. As of April 28, 2012, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Revolver and letters of credit outstanding totaled $8.8 million.

In September 2007, the Company’s Luxembourg subsidiary entered into a discretionary $20.0 million Uncommitted Line of Credit (the “Line of Credit”) with Bank of America. There is no term associated with the Line of Credit and Bank of America may withdraw the facility at any time without notice. The Line of Credit is

available to the Company’s foreign subsidiaries for use primarily as a bank overdraft facility for short-term liquidity needs and for the issuance of bank guarantees and letters of credit to support operations. As of April 28, 2012, there were cash overdrafts of $1.8 million outstanding under the Line of Credit and bank guarantees outstanding totaled $4.9 million.

In September 2005, the Company, along with GameStop, Inc. as co-issuer (together with the Company, the “Issuers”), completed the offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2011 (the “Senior Floating Rate Notes”) and $650 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2012 (the “Senior Notes” and, together with the Senior Floating Rate Notes, the “Notes”). The Notes were issued under an indenture, dated September 28, 2005, by and among the Issuers, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, and Citibank, N.A., as trustee. In November 2006, Wilmington Trust Company was appointed as the new Trustee for the Notes (the “Trustee”).

The Senior Notes bore interest at 8.0% per annum, were to mature on October 1, 2012 and were priced at 98.688%, resulting in a discount at the time of issue of $8.5 million. The discount was amortized using the effective interest method. The Issuers paid interest on the Senior Notes semi-annually, in arrears, every April 1 and October 1, to holders of record on the immediately preceding March 15 and September 15. Between May 2006 and December 2011, the Company repurchased and redeemed the $300 million of Senior Floating Rate Notes and the $650 million of Senior Notes under previously announced buybacks authorized by the Company’s Board of Directors. The repurchased Notes were delivered to the Trustee for cancellation. None of the debt was retired or redeemed during the 13-week period ended April 30, 2011. As of April 30, 2011, the only long-term debt outstanding was the $250 million in Senior Notes, gross of the unamortized original issue discount of $0.8 million. As of January 28, 2012, the Senior Notes had been fully redeemed.

Income Taxes

The Company and its subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various states and foreign jurisdictions. The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) is currently examining the Company’s U.S. income tax returns for the fiscal years ended on January 30, 2010, January 31, 2009, February 2, 2008 and February 3, 2007. The Company does not anticipate any adjustments that would result in a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements as a result of these audits. The Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal income tax examination by the IRS for years before and including the fiscal year ended January 28, 2006.

We accrue for the effects of uncertain tax positions and the related potential penalties and interest. There were no net material adjustments to our recorded liability for unrecognized tax benefits during the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. It is reasonably possible that the amount of the unrecognized tax benefit with respect to certain of our unrecognized tax positions could significantly increase or decrease during the next 12 months. At this time, an estimate of the range of the reasonably possible outcomes cannot be made.

The tax provisions for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011 are based upon management’s estimate of the Company’s annualized effective tax rate.

 

8.

Commitments and Contingencies

In the ordinary course of the Company’s business, the Company is, from time to time, subject to various legal proceedings, including matters involving wage and hour employee class actions and consumer class actions. The Company may enter into discussions regarding settlement of these and other types of lawsuits, and may enter into settlement agreements, if it believes settlement is in the best interest of the Company’s stockholders. Management does not believe that any such existing legal proceedings or settlements, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the information contained in our condensed consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto. Statements regarding future economic performance, management’s plans and objectives, and any statements concerning assumptions related to the foregoing contained in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations constitute forward-looking statements. Certain factors, which may cause actual results to vary materially from these forward-looking statements, accompany such statements or appear in GameStop’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 28, 2012 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 27, 2012 (the “Form 10-K”), including the factors disclosed under “Item 1A. Risk Factors.”

General

GameStop Corp. (together with its predecessor companies, “GameStop,” “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”) is the world’s largest multichannel video game retailer. We sell new and used video game hardware, physical and digital video game software, accessories, as well as PC entertainment software and other merchandise primarily through our GameStop, EB Games and Micromania stores. As of April 28, 2012, we operated 6,614 stores in the United States, Australia, Canada and Europe. We also operate electronic commerce Web sites www.gamestop.com, www.ebgames.com.au, www.gamestop.ca, www.gamestop.it, www.gamestop.es, www.gamestop.ie, www.gamestop.de, www.gamestop.co.uk and www.micromania.fr. The network also includes: www.kongregate.com, a leading browser-based game site; Game Informer magazine, the leading multi-platform video game publication; Spawn Labs, a streaming technology company; and a digital PC distribution platform available at www.gamestop.com/pcgames.

Our fiscal year is composed of 52 or 53 weeks ending on the Saturday closest to January 31. The fiscal year ending February 2, 2013 (“fiscal 2012”) consists of 53 weeks and the fiscal year ended January 28, 2012 (“fiscal 2011”) consists of 52 weeks.

Growth in the video game industry is generally driven by the introduction of new technology. The current generation of hardware consoles (the Sony PlayStation 3, the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii) were introduced between 2005 and 2007. The Nintendo DSi XL was introduced in early 2010, the Nintendo 3DS was introduced in March 2011 and the Sony PlayStation Vita was introduced in February 2012. Typically, following the introduction of new video game platforms, sales of new video game hardware increase as a percentage of total sales in the first full year following introduction. As video game platforms mature, the sales mix attributable to complementary video game software and accessories, which generate higher gross margins, generally increases in the subsequent years. The net effect is generally a decline in gross margins in the first full year following new platform releases and an increase in gross margins in the years subsequent to the first full year following the launch period. Unit sales of maturing video game platforms are typically also driven by manufacturer-funded retail price reductions, further driving sales of related software and accessories. New hardware systems are typically introduced every four to six years. The current generation of hardware is now between five and six years old and consumer demand is waning. We expect to see declines in hardware sales and software sales in fiscal 2012 due to the age of the current console cycle. The introduction of new consoles or further price cuts on the current generation of consoles could partially offset these declines.

We expect that future growth in the video game industry will also be driven by the sale of video games delivered in digital form and the expansion of other forms of gaming. We currently sell various types of products that relate to the digital category, including digitally downloaded software, Xbox LIVE, PlayStation and Nintendo network point cards, as well as prepaid digital and online timecards. We expect our sales of digital products to increase in fiscal 2012.

Critical Accounting Policies

Our condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and do not include all disclosures required under GAAP for complete financial statements. Preparation of these statements requires management to make judgments and estimates. Some accounting policies have a significant impact on amounts reported in these financial statements. For a summary of significant accounting policies and the means by which we develop estimates thereon, see “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Form 10-K.

The Company includes purchasing, receiving and distribution costs in selling, general and administrative expenses, rather than in cost of sales, in the statement of operations. The Company includes processing fees associated with purchases made by check and credit cards in cost of sales, rather than selling, general and administrative expenses, in the statement of operations. As a result of these classifications, our gross margins are not comparable to those retailers that include purchasing, receiving and distribution costs in cost of sales and include processing fees associated with purchases made by check and credit cards in selling, general and administrative expenses. The net effect of these classifications as a percentage of sales has not historically been material.

13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 compared with the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011

Sales decreased by $279.2 million, or 12.2%, from $2,281.4 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $2,002.2 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. The decrease in sales was primarily attributable to a decrease in comparable store sales of 12.5% and changes related to foreign exchange rates, which had the effect of decreasing sales by $19.6 million when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011. The decrease in comparable store sales was primarily due to a decrease in new video game hardware sales and new video game software sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011 due to a decline in demand as the current generation of video game technology ages. Stores are included in our comparable store sales base beginning in the thirteenth month of operation and exclude the effect of changes in foreign exchange rates.

New video game hardware sales decreased $83.8 million, or 19.4%, from $432.4 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $348.6 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. The decrease in new video game hardware sales is primarily due to a decrease in hardware unit sell-through related to being in the late stages of the current console cycle and sales from the launch of the Nintendo 3DS in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 which exceeded the sales from the launch of the Sony PlayStation Vita in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. New video game software sales decreased $183.6 million, or 20.1%, from $914.7 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30,

2011 to $731.1 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 primarily due to a lack of new release video game titles in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Used video game product sales decreased $6.0 million, or 1.0%, from $625.0 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $619.0 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. The decrease in used video game product sales was primarily due to changes related to foreign exchange rates, which had the effect of decreasing sales by $5.8 million when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Other product sales decreased by $5.8 million, or 1.9%, from $309.3 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $303.5 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. The decrease in other product sales was primarily due to decreases in accessories sales associated with hardware sales declines and lower PC entertainment software sales due to fewer new title launches in fiscal 2012, offset by higher mobile product sales in fiscal 2012.

As a percentage of sales, new video game hardware sales and new video game software sales decreased and used video game product sales and other product sales increased in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 compared to the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011. The change in the mix of sales was primarily due to the decreases in new video game hardware sales and new video game software sales discussed above.

Cost of sales decreased by $258.9 million, or 15.6%, from $1,661.2 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $1,402.3 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 as a result of the decrease in sales discussed above and the changes in gross profit discussed below.

Gross profit decreased by $20.3 million, or 3.3%, from $620.2 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $599.9 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. Gross profit as a percentage of sales increased from 27.2% in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to 30.0% in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. The gross profit percentage increase was primarily due to the increase in sales of used video game products and other products as a percentage of sales and the increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales on new video game software products, used video game products and other products. Gross profit as a percentage of sales on new video game hardware decreased from 7.0% in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to 6.6% in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 primarily due to an increase in promotional activities and a decrease in product replacement plan sales on new hardware units when compared to the prior year. Gross profit as a percentage of sales on new video game software increased from 19.1% to 20.5% in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 compared to the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 primarily due to the increase in the mix of international new video game software sales to total new video game software sales during the first quarter of fiscal 2012 when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011. International new video game software sales have a higher gross margin than U.S. new video game software sales. Gross profit as a percentage of sales on used video game products increased from 48.0% to 49.1% in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 compared to the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 due to improvements in margin rates throughout most of our international operations. Gross profit as a percentage of sales on other product sales increased from 37.2% to 40.5% in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 compared to the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 primarily due to a shift in sales to higher margin digital products, some of which are recorded on a commission basis at 100% margin, and growth in sales of PowerUp Rewards paid memberships and related Game Informer subscriptions that also have higher margins than PC entertainment software and accessories.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $2.3 million, or 0.5%, from $442.7 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $440.4 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. This decrease was primarily due to changes in foreign exchange rates which had the effect of decreasing expenses by $6.8 million when compared to fiscal 2011. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales increased from 19.4% in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 to 22.0% in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales was primarily due to deleveraging of fixed costs as a result of the decrease in comparable store sales. Included in selling, general and administrative expenses is $5.0 million and $4.9 million in stock-based compensation expense for the 13-week periods ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, respectively.

Depreciation and amortization expense decreased $1.9 million from $46.4 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $44.5 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012. This decrease was primarily due to a

decrease in capital expenditures when compared to fiscal 2011 which included significant investments in our loyalty and digital initiatives, as well as a decrease in new store openings and investments in management information systems.

Interest income from the investment of excess cash balances was $0.2 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011. Interest expense decreased from $6.3 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $0.6 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012, primarily due to the retirement of the Company’s senior notes in fiscal 2011.

Income tax expense for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 and the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 was based upon management’s estimate of the Company’s annualized effective tax rate. Income tax expense was $42.2 million, or 36.8% of earnings before income tax expense, for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 compared to $45.0 million, or 36.0% of earnings before income tax expense, for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011. The increase in the income tax rate was due primarily to differences in the expected sources of the Company’s earnings used in estimating the Company’s annualized effective tax rate.

The factors described above led to a decrease in operating earnings of $16.1 million, or 12.3%, from $131.1 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $115.0 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012, and a decrease in consolidated net income of $7.6 million, or 9.5%, from $80.0 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $72.4 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012.

The $0.1 million and $0.4 million net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 and fiscal 2011, respectively, represents the portion of the minority interest stockholders’ net loss of the Company’s non-wholly owned subsidiaries included in the Company’s consolidated net income.

United States

Segment results for the United States include retail operations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam, the electronic commerce Web site www.gamestop.com, Game Informer magazine, www.kongregate.com, a digital PC game distribution platform available at www.gamestop.com/pcgames and Spawn Labs. As of April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, the United States segment included 4,434 GameStop stores. Sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased $241.5 million, or 14.2%, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011 and comparable store sales decreased 15.0%. Comparable store sales decreased primarily due to decreases in new video game hardware sales and new video game software sales offset partially by increases in used video game product sales and other product sales during the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to the first quarter of 2011. The decrease in new video game hardware sales is primarily due to a decrease in hardware unit sell-through and lower price points related to being in the late stages of the current console cycle and sales from the launch of the Nintendo 3DS in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 which exceeded the sales from the launch of the Sony PlayStation Vita in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in new video game software sales is primarily due to a lack of new release video game titles in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Segment operating income decreased by $16.0 million, or 12.2%, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011, driven primarily by the decrease in comparable store sales.

Canada

Segment results for Canada include retail operations in Canada and their e-commerce site. Sales in the Canadian segment in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased $10.5 million, or 9.7%, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011. The decrease in sales was primarily attributable to a decrease in comparable store sales of 8.1% and the impact of changes in exchange rates in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011, which had the effect of decreasing sales by $2.0 million. Excluding the impact of changes in exchange rates, sales in the Canadian segment decreased by 7.9%. The decrease in sales at existing stores was primarily due to weak consumer traffic and a slow-down in hardware unit sell-through and lower price points compared to the prior year as a result of being in the late stages of the current console cycle. As of April 28, 2012, the Canadian segment had 343 stores compared to 346 stores as of April 30, 2011.

Segment operating income increased by $2.2 million to $2.5 million compared to $0.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. The increase in operating income was primarily due to a reduction in selling, general and administrative expenses when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011.

Australia

Segment results for Australia include retail operations and e-commerce sites in Australia and New Zealand. As of April 28, 2012, the Australian segment included 413 stores, compared to 408 stores as of April 30, 2011. Sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased 10.4% to $106.5 million compared to first quarter fiscal 2011 sales of $118.8 million. The decrease in sales was primarily attributable to a decrease in comparable store sales of 14.4% partially offset by the impact of changes in exchange rates in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011, which had the effect of increasing sales by $3.0 million. Excluding the impact of changes in exchange rates, sales in the Australian segment decreased 12.9%. The decrease in sales at existing stores was primarily due to weak consumer traffic and a slow-down in hardware unit sell-through and lower price points compared to the prior year as a result of being in the late stages of the current console cycle.

Segment operating income decreased $5.2 million to an operating loss of $1.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to operating income of $3.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. The decrease in operating earnings was primarily due to the decrease in sales at existing stores and the deleveraging of selling, general and administrative expense. In addition, the unfavorable impact of changes in exchange rates had the effect of increasing operating losses by $0.1 million for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 when compared to the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011.

Europe

Segment results for Europe during the first quarter of fiscal 2012 include retail store operations in 11 European countries and e-commerce sites in six countries. Segment results for Europe during the first quarter of fiscal 2011 include retail store operations in 13 European countries and e-commerce sites in five countries. As of April 28, 2012, the European segment operated 1,424 stores compared to 1,385 stores as of April 30, 2011. For the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012, European sales decreased $14.9 million, or 4.2%, compared to the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011. The decrease in sales was primarily due to unfavorable exchange rates recognized in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011, which had the effect of decreasing sales by $20.6 million. Excluding the effects of exchange rates, European segment sales increased 1.6%. This increase in sales was primarily due to the additional sales at the 91 stores opened since April 30, 2011, offset by a decrease in comparable sales of 1.1% when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2011.

The segment operating loss in Europe was $1.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to an operating loss of $4.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. The decrease in the operating loss in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was primarily due to a reduction in selling, general and administrative expenses as a result of management’s cost control plans. In addition, the impact of changes in exchange rates had the effect of increasing operating losses by $0.2 million for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 when compared to the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011.

Seasonality

The Company’s business, like that of many retailers, is seasonal, with the major portion of the sales and operating profit realized during the fourth fiscal quarter which includes the holiday selling season.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash Flows

During the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012, cash used in operations was $162.2 million compared to cash used in operations of $132.5 million during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011. The increase in cash used in operations of $29.7 million was primarily due to a $13.7 million decrease in net income adjusted for noncash items and an $11.6 million decrease in cash flows related to the changes in payments of other long-term liabilities. Cash used in operations related to working capital increased $4.4 million from $276.2 million in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 to $280.6 million in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 due primarily to changes in the payment of income taxes and changes in inventory and related accounts payable from year to year. Our business is highly seasonal, with a disproportionate amount of sales occurring in the fourth quarter of each year. We purchase inventory in anticipation of these fourth quarter sales and, as a result, have higher accounts payable at year-end compared to the end of the first quarter. During the first quarter of each fiscal year, we have traditionally had a significant use of cash associated with the pay down of accounts payables from year-end.

Cash used in investing activities was $22.1 million and $60.1 million during the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, respectively. During the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012, $22.3 million of cash was used primarily to invest in information systems, invest in digital initiatives and open new stores and remodel existing stores in the U.S. and internationally. During the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011, $42.4 million of cash was used primarily to invest in information systems and e-commerce, invest in digital and loyalty program initiatives and open new stores in the U.S. and internationally. The decrease in capital expenditures from the first quarter of fiscal 2011 to the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was due primarily to a decrease in investments in e-commerce, digital and loyalty initiatives since the majority of the significant up-front investment in these initiatives was completed by the end of fiscal 2011. Additionally, during the first quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company used $11.4 million for acquisitions in support of the Company’s digital initiatives.

Cash used in financing activities was $140.9 million and $133.0 million for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and April 30, 2011, respectively. The cash used in financing activities for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 was primarily due to the purchase of $121.6 million of treasury shares pursuant to the Board of Directors’ authorizations from November 2011 and March 2012 and the payment of dividends on the Company’s Class A

Table of Contents

Common Stock of $20.5 million. The cash used in financing activities for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011 was primarily due to the purchase of $139.8 million of treasury shares pursuant to the Board of Directors’ $500 million authorization in February 2011, offset partially by the issuance of shares relating to stock option exercises of $7.2 million.

Sources of Liquidity

We utilize cash generated from operations and have funds available to us under our revolving credit facility to cover seasonal fluctuations in cash flows and to support our various growth initiatives. Our cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates market value, and consist primarily of time deposits with highly rated commercial banks and money market investment funds holding direct U.S. Treasury obligations.

On January 4, 2011, the Company entered into a $400 million credit agreement (the “Revolver”), which amended and restated, in its entirety, the Company’s prior credit agreement entered into in October 2005 (the “Credit Agreement”). The Revolver provides for a five-year, $400 million asset-based facility, including a $50 million letter of credit sublimit, secured by substantially all of the Company’s and its domestic subsidiaries’ assets. The Company has the ability to increase the facility, which matures in January 2016, by $150 million under certain circumstances. The extension of the Revolver to 2016 reduces our exposure to potential tightening in the credit markets.

The availability under the Revolver is limited to a borrowing base which allows the Company to borrow up to 90% of the appraisal value of the inventory, in each case plus 90% of eligible credit card receivables, net of certain reserves. Letters of credit reduce the amount available to borrow by their face value. The Company’s ability to pay cash dividends, redeem options and repurchase shares is generally permitted, except under certain circumstances, including if Revolver excess availability is less than 20%, or is projected to be within 12 months after such payment. In addition, if Revolver usage is projected to be equal to or greater than 25% of the borrowing base during the prospective 12-month period, the Company is subject to meeting a fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.1:1.0 prior to making such payments. In the event that excess availability under the Revolver is at any time less than the greater of (1) $40.0 million or (2) 12.5% of the lesser of the total commitment or the borrowing base, the Company will be subject to a fixed charge coverage ratio covenant of 1.1:1.0.

The Revolver places certain restrictions on the Company and its subsidiaries, including limitations on asset sales, additional liens, investments, loans, guarantees, acquisitions and the incurrence of additional indebtedness. Absent consent from its lenders, the Company may not incur more than $750 million of additional unsecured indebtedness to be limited to $250 million in general unsecured obligations and $500 million in unsecured obligations to finance acquisitions valued at $500 million or more. The per annum interest rate under the Revolver is variable and is calculated by applying a margin (1) for prime rate loans of 1.25% to 1.50% above the highest of (a) the prime rate of the administrative agent, (b) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50% and (c) the London Interbank Offered (“LIBO”) rate for a 30-day interest period as determined on such day plus 1.00%, and (2) for LIBO rate loans of 2.25% to 2.50% above the LIBO rate. The applicable margin is determined quarterly as a function of the Company’s average daily excess availability under the facility. In addition, the Company is required to pay a commitment fee of 0.375% or 0.50%, depending on facility usage, for any unused portion of the total commitment under the Revolver. As of April 28, 2012, the applicable margin was 1.25% for prime rate loans and 2.25% for LIBO rate loans, while the required commitment fee was 0.50% for the unused portion of the Revolver.

The Revolver provides for customary events of default with corresponding grace periods, including failure to pay any principal or interest when due, failure to comply with covenants, any material representation or warranty made by the Company or the borrowers proving to be false in any material respect, certain bankruptcy, insolvency or receivership events affecting the Company or its subsidiaries, defaults relating to certain other indebtedness, imposition of certain judgments and mergers or the liquidation of the Company or certain of its subsidiaries. As of April 28, 2012, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Revolver and letters of credit outstanding totaled $8.8 million.

In September 2007, the Company’s Luxembourg subsidiary entered into a discretionary $20.0 million Uncommitted Line of Credit (the “Line of Credit”) with Bank of America. There is no term associated with the Line of Credit and Bank of America may withdraw the facility at any time without notice. The Line of Credit is available to the Company’s foreign subsidiaries for use primarily as a bank overdraft facility for short-term liquidity needs and for the issuance of bank guarantees and letters of credit to support operations. As of April 28, 2012, there were cash overdrafts of $1.8 million outstanding under the Line of Credit and bank guarantees outstanding totaled $4.9 million.

In September 2005, the Company, along with GameStop, Inc. as co-issuer (together with the Company, the “Issuers”), completed the offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Floating Rate Notes due 2011 (the “Senior Floating Rate Notes”) and $650 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2012 (the “Senior Notes” and, together with the Senior Floating Rate Notes, the “Notes”). The Notes were issued under an indenture, dated September 28, 2005, by and among the Issuers, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, and Citibank, N.A., as trustee. In November 2006, Wilmington Trust Company was appointed as the new Trustee for the Notes (the “Trustee”).

The Senior Notes bore interest at 8.0% per annum, were to mature on October 1, 2012 and were priced at 98.688%, resulting in a discount at the time of issue of $8.5 million. The discount was amortized using the effective interest method. The Issuers paid interest on the Senior Notes semi-annually, in arrears, every April 1 and October 1, to holders of record on the immediately preceding March 15 and September 15. As of January 28, 2012, the Senior Notes had been fully redeemed. As of April 30, 2011, the only long-term debt outstanding was the Senior Notes.

Uses of Capital

Our future capital requirements will depend on the number of new stores opened and the timing of those openings within a given fiscal year, as well as the investments we will make in e-commerce, digital and other strategic initiatives. The Company opened 42 stores in the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012 and expects to open approximately 150 stores in fiscal 2012. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2012 are projected to be approximately $140 million, to be used primarily to fund continued digital initiatives, new store openings, store remodels and invest in distribution and information systems in support of operations.

Between May 2006 and December 2011, the Company repurchased and redeemed the $300 million of Senior Floating Rate Notes and the $650 million of Senior Notes under previously announced buybacks authorized by the Company’s Board of Directors. The repurchased Notes were delivered to the Trustee for cancellation. None of the debt was retired or redeemed during the 13-week period ended April 30, 2011.

At the beginning of fiscal 2011, $22.0 million of treasury share purchases made during fiscal 2010 were settled. In February 2011, the Board of Directors authorized the Company to use $500 million to repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock and/or retire the Company’s Senior Notes. Under the repurchase program, the Company could purchase the Company’s Senior Notes and/or shares of issued and outstanding Class A Common Stock through open market purchases, debt calls or privately negotiated transactions. During the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2011, the Company repurchased 5.9 million shares at an average price per share of $19.88. For the remainder of fiscal 2011, the Company purchased an additional 5.3 million shares for an average price per share of $23.05.

In November 2011, the Board of Directors authorized the Company to use $500 million to repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock and/or retire the Company’s Senior Notes, replacing the remaining $180.1 million authorization. On March 20, 2012, the Board of Directors authorized the Company to use $500 million to repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock, replacing the remaining $253.4 million of the November 2011 authorization. During the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012, the Company repurchased 5.4 million shares at an average price per share of $22.70. As of April 28, 2012, $454.8 million remained available under the current authorization. As of May 29, 2012, the Company has purchased an additional 1.7 million shares for an average price per share of $19.09 since April 28, 2012.

On February 8, 2012, the Board of Directors of the Company announced the initiation of a quarterly cash dividend to its stockholders of $0.15 per share of Class A Common Stock. The first quarterly cash dividend was paid on March 12, 2012 to all stockholders of record as of February 21, 2012. On May 15, 2012, the Board of Directors of the Company approved a quarterly cash dividend to its stockholders of $0.15 per Class A common share payable on June 12, 2012 to stockholders of record at the close of business on May 29, 2012. Future dividends will be subject to approval by the Board of Directors of the Company.

Based on our current operating plans, we believe that available cash balances, cash generated from our operating activities and funds available under the Revolver will be sufficient to fund our operations, digital initiatives, store openings and remodeling activities and corporate capital expenditure programs for at least the next 12 months.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, we adopted the accounting standard update regarding the presentation of comprehensive income. This accounting standard update was issued to increase the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income. The accounting standard update requires that all non-owner changes in stockholders’ equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate, but consecutive statements. In connection with the adoption of this accounting standard update, our condensed consolidated financial statements now include separate statements of comprehensive income.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, we adopted the accounting standard update regarding fair value measurement and disclosure. This accounting standard update was issued to provide a consistent definition of fair value and ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. This accounting standard update also changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances the disclosure requirements particularly for Level 3 fair value measurements. The adoption of this accounting standard update did not have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Disclosure Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This report on Form 10-Q and other oral and written statements made by the Company to the public contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties. A number of factors could cause our actual results, performance, achievements or industry results to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to:

 

   

our reliance on suppliers and vendors for sufficient quantities of their products and for new product releases;

 

   

general economic conditions in the U.S. and internationally and specifically, economic conditions affecting Europe, the electronic game industry and the retail industry;

our ability to attract and retain qualified personnel;

 

   

our ability to effectively integrate acquired companies, including digital gaming and technology-based companies that are outside of the Company’s historical operating expertise;

 

   

the impact and costs of litigation and regulatory compliance;

 

   

unanticipated litigation results, including third-party litigation;

other factors described in the Form 10-K, including those set forth under the caption “Item 1A. Risk Factors.”

In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of terms such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “continues,” “could,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “plans,” “potential,” “predicts,” “pro forma,” “should,” “seeks,” “will” or similar expressions. These statements are only predictions based on current expectations and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our or our industry’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise after the date of this Form 10-Q. In light of these risks and uncertainties, the forward-looking events and circumstances contained in this Form 10-Q may not occur, causing actual results to differ materially from those anticipated or implied by our forward-looking statements.

 

ITEM 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Interest Rate Exposure

We do not use derivative financial instruments to hedge interest rate exposure. We limit our interest rate risks by investing our excess cash balances in short-term, highly-liquid instruments with a maturity of one year or less. We do not expect any material losses from our invested cash balances, and we believe that our interest rate exposure is modest.

Foreign Currency Risk

The Company uses forward exchange contracts, foreign currency options and cross-currency swaps (together, the “Foreign Currency Contracts”) to manage currency risk primarily related to intercompany loans denominated in non-functional currencies and certain foreign currency assets and liabilities. The Foreign Currency Contracts are not designated as hedges and, therefore, changes in the fair values of these derivatives are recognized in earnings, thereby offsetting the current earnings effect of the re-measurement of related intercompany loans and foreign currency assets and liabilities. For the fiscal quarter ended April 28, 2012, the Company recognized a $1.8 million loss in selling, general and administrative expenses related to the trading of derivative instruments. The aggregate fair value of the Foreign Currency Contracts as of April 28, 2012 was a net asset of $12.6 million as measured by observable inputs obtained from market news reporting services, such as Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal, and industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices, time value, volatility factors, and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. A hypothetical strengthening or weakening of 10% in the foreign exchange rates underlying the Foreign Currency Contracts from the market rate as of April 28, 2012 would result in a (loss) or gain in value of the forwards, options and swaps of ($19.2) million or $19.2 million, respectively.

We do not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes. We are exposed to counterparty credit risk on all of our derivative financial instruments and cash equivalent investments. The Company manages counterparty risk according to the guidelines and controls established under comprehensive risk management and investment policies. We continuously monitor our counterparty credit risk and utilize a number of different counterparties to minimize our exposure to potential defaults. We do not require collateral under derivative or investment agreements.

 

ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s management conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) at the reasonable assurance level. Based on this evaluation, the principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective at the reasonable assurance level. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that it will detect or uncover failures within the Company to disclose material information otherwise required to be set forth in the Company’s periodic reports.

(b) Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There was no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the Company’s most recently completed fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1.    Legal Proceedings

In the ordinary course of the Company’s business, the Company is, from time to time, subject to various legal proceedings, including matters involving wage and hour employee class actions and consumer class actions. The Company may enter into discussions regarding settlement of these and other types of lawsuits, and may enter into settlement agreements, if we believe settlement is in the best interest of the Company’s stockholders. Management does not believe that any such existing legal proceedings or settlements, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.

 

ITEM 1A.    Risk Factors

In addition to the other information set forth in this Form 10-Q, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 28, 2012 filed with the SEC on March 27, 2012. These risks could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. The risks described in our Form 10-K have not changed materially, however, they are not the only risks we face. Our operations could also be affected by additional factors that are not presently known to us or by factors that we currently consider immaterial to our business.
