As the company noted last month, the Easter holiday is in April this year versus March last year. Given this shift in peak spring selling weeks, the company expected March to be negatively impacted. The company expects gross margins for Q1 to be below the prior year by more than the year-over-year decline in Q4. In addition, given ongoing expense management, the company expects Q1 operating expenses to be flat to last year.
