The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Dollar Tree, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (the "Company") have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and are presented in accordance with the requirements of Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.  The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations for the year ended January 28, 2012 contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed March 15, 2012.  The results of operations for the 13 and 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year ending February 2, 2013.

In the Company’s opinion, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included herein contain all adjustments (consisting of those of a normal recurring nature) considered necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position as of October 27, 2012 and October 29, 2011 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the periods presented.  The January 28, 2012 balance sheet information was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date.

On September 28, 2012, the Company sold its ownership interest in Ollie’s Holdings, Inc., which it originally acquired in 2003.  As a result of the sale, the Company recorded a pre-tax gain of $60.8 million in the third quarter of 2012 which is included in “Other (income) expense, net” on the accompanying condensed consolidated income statements.  The gain, net of tax, was $38.1 million and increased earnings per diluted share for the 13 and 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012 by $0.17 and $0.16, respectively.

On May 29, 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a 2-for-1 stock split in the form of a 100% common stock dividend.  New shares were distributed on June 26, 2012 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on June 12, 2012.  As a result, all share and per share data in these condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been retroactively adjusted to reflect this stock split.

In the first quarter of 2012, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220):  Presentation of Comprehensive Income.”  This update requires that the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income be presented in either a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  This update does not change what items are reported in other comprehensive income or the requirement to report reclassification of items from other comprehensive income to net income.
