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.

Hussman Strategic Advisors (HSA) seeks to identify stocks with favorable valuations and/or market action. The firm's primary valuation consideration is the relationship between current price and the present value of expected future cash flows. They also consider other valuation measures such as p/e ratio and price/revenue ratios to measure underlying value and the probability of long-term returns. HEA's analysis of market action includes measurements of price behavior and unusual trading volume.The Hussman Funds are diversified, no-load mutual funds that seek long-term investment returns with emphasis on capital protection in unfavorable market conditions. The Funds vary their exposure to market fluctuations, from neutral to aggressive, based on HSA's identification of the return/risk characteristics of each market climate.The Hussman Strategic Growth Fund invests primarily in U.S. stocks, with the objective of long-term capital appreciation, and places added emphasis on defending capital during unfavorable market conditions.The Hussman Strategic Total Return Fund invests primarily in U.S. Treasury and government agency securities with the objective of long-term total return, and has the ability to take a limited exposure in foreign government bonds, utility stocks, and precious metals shares.The Hussman Strategic International Fund invests primarily in equity securities of non-U.S. issuers with the objective of long-term total return with added emphasis on the protection of capital during unfavorable market conditions.The Hussman Strategic Dividend Value Fund invests primarily in dividend-paying equity securities with the objective of long-term total return through a combination of dividend income and capital appreciation, with added emphasis on the protection of capital during unfavorable market conditions.HSA's fixed-income strategy is based on the idea that risk/return characteristics in the fixed-income market vary significantly across market conditions. Like their equity approach, the firm's fixed-income approach focuses on valuation and market action. They seek to identify bonds with long-term with yields that appear reasonable in relation to inflation, short-term interest rates, economic growth and the yields available on competing assets such as utility stocks and foreign bonds. Their consideration of market action seeks to assess the economic outlook of investors, their willingness to accept market risk and considers the behavior of a wide range of yields and prices.
