Company Description

Express is the must-have sexy, sophisticated fashion brand for work, the weekend, or going out. It’s what’s new and what’s now for young fashion-forward women and men. We started more than thirty years ago as an experiment – an offshoot of another successful retail concept. There was nothing but opportunity in front of us and we took it. We aren’t inventors – there are so few of those in the world of fashion today – nor are we imitators, that is far too easy. At Express, we are innovators. We find inspiration and trends from all over the world and interpret them in a way that is uniquely Express. And we have become the preferred destination for the latest trends. Express is a specialty apparel and accessories retailer of women's and men's merchandise, targeting the 20 to 30 year old customer. The Company has over 30 years of experience offering a distinct combination of fashion and quality for multiple lifestyle occasions at an attractive value addressing fashion needs across work, casual, jeanswear, and going-out occasions. The Company currently operates more than 600 retail stores, located primarily in high-traffic shopping malls, lifestyle centers, and street locations across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico; and also distributes its products through the Company's e-commerce website, www.express.com.

Contrarius Investment Management Ltd. is an active, contrarian manager which aims to create long-term wealth for clients by buying stocks they believe are trading below their intrinsic value and which are attractive relative to other opportunities. They follow a valuation-based investment approach, performing proprietary bottom-up research which seeks to determine the intrinsic value of an investment. The firm sells stocks when they believe they have reached their underlying intrinsic value or when they are less attractive than other opportunities, aiming to avoid the permanent loss which can result from continuing to hold a stock that ultimately corrects to fair value. Contrarius takes a long-term approach to investing, with a typical investment horizon of four years, believing that the ability to outperform in the long-term is largely determined by focusing on the long-term value of a business rather than short-term news flow.
