Well if you mean in last March, 2009 yes it increased their earnings and SSS. But it also destroyed some earnings in future quarters as they took their eye off the ball, overstocked and reduced margins.
Hott declined to get heavily involved in the sequel.
I have some posts over on the HOTT board that I think address the issues so I wont take up to much space here. If you want, leave me a post over there on any questions and we can discuss it and let anyone else chime in.
