The following is an interview with Joseph C. Muscari, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer since March 1, 2007, introducing himself to the Company’s employees.
This interview contains forward-looking statements, which describe or are based on current expectations. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations. In addition, any statements that are not statements of historical fact (including statements containing the words “believe,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “estimate” and similar expressions) should also be considered to be forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Forward-looking statements in this interview should be evaluated together with the many uncertainties that affect our businesses, particularly those mentioned in the risk factors and other cautionary statements included in our 2006 Form 10-K and in our other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
