MAYWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - February 1, 2010) - Jaclyn, Inc. (OTCQX: JCLY) today announced that it will change its fiscal year from a June 30th year end to a fiscal year ending the last day of February, effective February 28, 2010. Accordingly, the first three fiscal quarters of each fiscal year will end on May 31, August 31, and November 30, and the last fiscal quarter will end on the last day of February.

Jaclyn also today announced that due to the continuing economic recession and its effect on credit and real estate markets, the proposed purchaser of its former executive office and warehouse facility, plus three additional lots, located in West New York, New Jersey has requested a reduced purchase price for the properties. Accordingly, the purchase price and possibly other terms and conditions of the proposed transaction are likely to change. As previously announced, the proposed purchaser has received certain preliminary governmental approvals for its anticipated use of the properties, although final approval has yet to be obtained. In addition, since the completion of any sale of the property continues to be subject to a number of conditions and deliveries, there is no assurance that sale of the property will be concluded.
