Ace,

A/R and A/P are in line with each other, so those numbers don't concern me much. Also, DSO doesn't concern me much because my experience with another retail type stock indicates that this is typical with the Christmas season.
Inventory, however, is the number that stuck out for me. If we assume the excess inventory (above the % increase in sales, also assuming inventory increases in proportion to sales) turns out to be a bust, i.e. we write it off as a loss, what do you calculate the eps to be? I'm getting some screwy numbers and don't trust my math.
In other words, sales increased 162%. Take the excess of inventory above a 162% increase and back it out of the eps. What do you get?
Thanks in advance.
