Item  2.02       Results of Operations and Financial Condition

        The information in this Form 8-K and the Exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

        On January 19, 2005, Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. (“Ethan Allen” or the “Company”) issued a press release setting forth its operating results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2004. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and hereby incorporated by reference.

        Exhibit 99.1 includes a reference to the Company’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”). A reconciliation of this financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) is also provided in the attached Exhibit.

        Management considers EBITDA an important indicator of the operational strength and performance of its business, including the ability of the Company to pay interest, service debt and fund capital expenditures. Given the nature of the Company’s operations, including the tangible assets necessary to carry out its production and distribution activities, depreciation and amortization represent Ethan Allen’s largest non-cash charges. As these non-cash charges do not affect the Company’s ability to service debt or make capital expenditures, it is important to consider EBITDA in addition to, but not as a substitute for, operating income, net income and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP, including cash flow measures such as operating cash flow. Further, EBITDA is one measure used to determine compliance with the Company’s existing credit facility.
