KATE - To Pre-Announce 1/29, Breaks 'Wall of Silence'

Takeaway: There's a first time for everything. KATE pre-announced that next Thursday it is going to pre-announce. As bizarre as this seems to be, the only negative is that it confirms a severe disconnect between this company's communication strategy vs. the fundamental strength in its business, and the upside to the long-term financial model. For the full link to our note from this morning, CLICK HERE.

RH - RH APPOINTS ALI ROWGHANI TO BOARD OF DIRECTORS

(http://ir.restorationhardware.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=79100&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=2009793)

Takeaway: RH needed one more independent Board member to be compliant with the listing requirements after Barry Sternlicht stepped down from the board mid-Summer. We don't know Rowghani personally but his resume speaks for itself. Sternlicht was invaluable in helping build out the blueprint for the Full Line Design Gallery. A framework that is still guiding the negotiations for new deals. We like that that Rowghani checks a box in two departments - finance and tech.
