"We continue to see strong growth and positive financial performance from an expanded boutique base, growing comparable boutique sales and growth in our e-commerce division," said Jan Glaser, co-CEO and treasurer of Tatyana Designs, Inc. "We absorbed significant new boutique startup expenses including a $326,000 non-cash increase in deferred rent. We also expanded our infrastructure to prepare for additional growth in 2014. We are generating cash from operations to support growth and we are optimistic about the balance of the year and 2014."

Non-GAAP Information - This press release includes non-GAAP EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (adjusted for non-cash deferred rent) each a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in tables accompanying this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company's business as it grows. The Company's presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed to imply that its future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company's industry may calculate these items differently than it does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP.
