The TJX Companies, Inc. is the leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer in the U.S. and worldwide. We believe that our retail business model is one of the most flexible in the world and that we have one of the widest demographic reaches in retail, both of which have enabled us to achieve successful, profitable growth, through many types of economic and retail cycles across different geographies. In our history as a Company, our annual comparable store sales have declined only once, and we have delivered solid earnings growth and strong financial returns. We are one of the few large U.S. retailers of apparel and home fashions to have expanded successfully internationally. We operate stores in nine countries across three continents, and we continue to believe we have exciting growth opportunities both in the U.S. and internationally. Our strong operations have consistently generated large amounts of cash annually, which has allowed us to invest in the growth of the business, while simultaneously returning value to shareholders. Looking ahead, we see a long runway for growth and are far from finished growing TJX around the world!
