He continued, “There is little we can do about the state of the economy, but there is much we can do to address and improve on our past performance and create value going forward. We have developed a number of revenue, cost and expense initiatives that address the specific issues related to this performance.”

In other news, the company recently announced the appointment of James White as its new president and chief executive officer as well as a member of Jamba’s board of directors.
