Our results demonstrated the strength of the Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger businesses, which both continue to exhibit strong global growth, despite the macro-environment and unseasonably cold weather that negatively impacted sales of spring product in North America and Europe. We were also pleased to see the strong operating improvements in our pre-existing Heritage Brands wholesale business, primarily in the sportswear division, and believe the Speedo, Warner’s and Olga brands are proving to be strategic complements to our pre-existing Heritage Brands portfolio.”
