In 2016, EXPR replaced its legacy IT systems with new order management, retail management, and enterprise planning systems. We would expect these to start to bear fruit toward 2H17/2018. EXPR has also made progress on its initiatives to correct issues that occurred last spring and expects to have deeper offerings.
