Following is a summary of the Company’s noncash financing activities for the respective fiscal years:

Interest expense was $66.1 million, $69.7 million and $59.1 million and interest income was $7.0 million, $8.8 million and $15.0 million in fiscal 1999, 1998 and 1997, respectively. Interest paid totaled $69.0 million, $70.7 million and $58.4 million in fiscal 1999, 1998 and 1997, respectively.

In connection with certain business dispositions completed between 1991 and 1997, the Company continues to guarantee lease obligations for approximately 1,400 former stores. The Company is indemnified for these obligations by the respective purchasers. Assuming that each respective purchaser became insolvent, an event which the Company believes to be highly unlikely, management estimates that it could settle these obligations for approximately $1.0 billion as of January 1, 2000.

In the opinion of management, the ultimate disposition of these guarantees will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition, results of operations or future cash flows.

As of January 1, 2000, the Company had outstanding commitments to purchase $283.8 million of merchandise inventory for use in the normal course of business. The Company currently expects to satisfy these purchase commitments by 2002.

The Company is also a defendant in various lawsuits arising in the ordinary course of business. In the opinion of management and the Company’s outside counsel, the ultimate disposition of these lawsuits, exclusive of potential insurance recoveries, will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition, results of operations or future cash flows.
