At Perry Ellis International, we believe our competitive strengths, buoyed by the expertise of our family of talented industry professionals, position us to capitalize on several trends that have affected the apparel sector in recent years. These trends include the consolidation of the department and chain store sectors into a smaller number of stronger retailers which now represent some of our most important customers; the increased reliance of retailers on qualified partners with sourcing expertise and advanced systems and technology; and the continued importance of strong brands as a source of product differentiation. Aided by these market conditions and backed by a proven eye for opportunity, we look forward to delivering continued growth through the creation of fashion that resonates uniquely with the lifestyles of consumers worldwide.
