NASSAU, The Bahamas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Steiner Leisure Limited (NASDAQ:STNR) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2007.

Financial Results

Steiner Leisure's revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2007 rose 10.8% to $135.2 million from $122.1 million during the comparable quarter in 2006. Income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2007, was $11.0 million compared with $13.2 million for the same quarter in 2006. In the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company adopted Staff Accounting Bulletin 108, Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements ("SAB 108"). The effect of adopting SAB 108 was an income tax benefit of $1.8 million during the fourth quarter of 2006. That adoption had no impact on our results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2006.

Earnings per share for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2007 was $0.67 per share, compared with $0.75 per share for the comparable quarter in 2006. The earnings per share data are presented on a diluted basis.

Income from continuing operations, before discontinued operations for the year ended December 31, 2007, was $44.7 million, compared with $45.9 million in 2006. For 2006, we recorded a deferred tax benefit of $2.3 million as a result of implementing certain tax planning strategies.

Earnings per share before discontinued operations for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $2.63 per share compared with $2.60 per share for 2006. The above earnings per share data are presented on a diluted basis.

New Share Repurchase Plan

Steiner Leisure also today announced the approval by its Board of Directors of a new share repurchase plan under which up to $100,000,000 of Steiner Leisure common shares can be purchased. In connection with this new repurchase authorization, the repurchase plan approved by the Board in July 2007 was terminated. A total of approximately 460,000 of our common shares remained authorized to be repurchased under that plan at the time it was terminated.

Under the new share repurchase plan, Steiner Leisure may purchase shares from time to time, at prevailing prices in open market, and possibly other, transactions, subject to market conditions and compliance with certain financial parameters. We cannot provide assurance as to the exact number of shares that will be repurchased under the plan.
